The green Silver Mirage was only available to attendees of the convention who bought a Shadows boxed set. They will never sell them in there store. If they have extras left over they will be used as bingo/casino/auction prizes. They could even show up in their "Lets make a deal" sale at a future Joecon.

Just to clear up one or two things for people:-

1. We can not order just bagged sets of Shadows. The rule still applies to store purchases that you can only order one bagged set per boxed set ordered. Shame, as it would be nice to order loads of bagged sets, but we are not allowed to do it - you can only order a bagged set if you order a boxed set first.

2. The prices are shown in the store (as per Aire's links). I would propose to Order, find out postage costs once the order is finalised, and then let everyone know the total amount they owe me, including a share of postage. THis is on the strict understanding that I get paid within a day or two of my sending you an email confirming initial amounts owed (the purchase costs and share of US shipping costs). Otherwise I end up out of pocket, and that's not really fair as I'm trying to do folks a favour with this.

3. If the Parcel has to pay customs charges on the way in to the UK I will have to collect extra money in from folks based on the amount of the charges attributable to their items. I CANT CONFIRM THIS AT THE MOMENT! I dont know (a) if it will get charged customs or (b) how much as a % any customs charges will be. I could only confirm this once teh parcel is in the UK.

4. Once the items are safely in my hands I will reparcel them up and forward them on, but will need to let you now the UK postage amounts too, and will need that settling too.

So potentially there will be three amounts owed - the purchase costs, the inmport costs, and the UK postage costs.

I dont mean to be difficult with this, but I'm getting lots of folks understandably asking me for exact amounts, and the bottom line is I dont know, as it would be out of my hands. If you want me to order the bulk, then fine, I will, but I dont expect to be out of pocket for doing folks a favour, and the bottom line is the end price is still likely to be significantly less than buying from ebay.

Sorry for ranting, it's just it seems to me that this idea is getting way more complicated than it needs to be, and I'm on the verge of just saying to folks "sort yourselves out" and ordering my own.

Cheers
Steve

Steve, are we looking at the Officer level prices, or Trooper level? Toying with getting the bunker even though I don't like it.

I'm an Officer - so the cheapest price.

Although I'm certain Officers still need to salute Barons!

Thanks Steve that is one thing I was wondering as well. Using Expedia's currency Converter the Q Force set is roughly £31.26 without customs and shipping.

I ordered the Q Force 2 pk & the Z Force 3pk earlier on Joes & it came to a total of £104 including shipping to the Uk (I'm an Officer).It's a good job I didn't want any of the others yet as the postage was huge.

Steve wont have that info until all the orders are in. But it will be split between a fair few of us.
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?
