OK guys, I'm in the process of buying the prototypes book but shipping to the UK is like $53 Sad however for additional copies it only increases by approx. $10 per book, so I was wondering if anyone fancies either of these books and we could split the shipping?

Once in the UK I'm guessing we'd be looking at £5 per book via collect+

Let me know and the links are below....

Each book is $40 so £24 each

shipping for one is $46 / £28 (£28 per book) to the UK and for 2 it's $58 / £35 (£17.50 per book), so the more we order the better saving on shipping we get, and so on....

Calling all the UK guys!!!!

I've managed to arrange a deal for 4 books for $200 shipped to the UK, so that's $50 / £30 GBP each delivered to my house.

On top of that will be approx. £5 to ship them out to you guys using collect+, so who's in?

Hi,

Have you factored in the import taxes at the border? I got two copies of plastic galaxies sent from the states recently and thought I was doing myself a favour to save on postage, but this pushed the declared price up which then attracted the import duty ... I think I was almost worse off than ordering two copies individually!

I'd be interested to get a copy though, if you can just let me know if the price includes the above as well.

Cheers, Jared.

The books would be shipped to the UK tracked but declared as a GIFT to avoid the rip off tax

out of curiosity and that they have a bundle deal at the site has anyone read the Gus and Duncan's Comprehensive Guide to Star Wars Collectibles. If so how is it I figured for $50 plus shipping for two books it sounds like a pretty good deal.

Hi,

I picked up my book a few days ago, some great stuff in there. Two pages that stood out to me were the one with the Luke double telescoping sabers still on the sprue and the sail skiff coin on a POTF mockup card. Very informative book!

Cheers, Jared
