LEGO London Olympic Minifigures Available Worldwide

Post by Toys N Bricks » Tue Jul 17, 2012 8:14 pm

Update: All sold out now. For those living outside of Europe, we would recommend contacting John Lewis regarding their VAT/tax since its not being removed during the checkout process. Literally, you shouldn't have to pay 16-17% tax on it (the tax is hidden in the price of the item).

If you are outside of the United Kingdom, no fear as these LEGO London Olympic minifigures are now available for direct international sale! They are sold by a Britain retailer known as John Lewis (similar to Sears/Macy's) and the minifigures are also priced without markups at £1.99 (~$3.12 USD). Thanks to Adamson for the heads up.

Shipping is very heavy for international shipments. However, the good news is that its only a flat £25 charge (~$40 USD). This means that you can order as many minifigures as you like for the same shipping price. 20 minifigures would work out to be about $5/minifigure, 60 minifigures would work out to be $3.67/minifigure, 120 minifigures would work out to be $3.33/minifigure and so on.

I dropped my jaw when I read the title, then I read about the shipping charges. No thanks! I'm good with doing trades.

Be careful. I just did a Google search and I found a reference from Feb 2011 of someone in Alberta, Canada receiving a $240 order with a $63 import tax. There might be some unexpected hefty customs/brokerage charges. Plus they don't remove the VAT for non-EU buyers.

Ouch... big shipping. AUD 37.85 is pretty insane. My last shipment of goodies from the UK was 10 x 30131 for £7 :/

Not removing the VAT for non-European buyers is illegal to my information - they should not be doing that... given the duties/brokerage fees that might occur I would refrain from this.

Why doesn't Amazon have these yet?!?

Yeaaaaah...I'm pretty sure these minifigures are out of my price range by quite a lot.
