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.

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.beethead wrote: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.
Why doesn't Amazon have these yet?!?
Yeaaaaah...I'm pretty sure these minifigures are out of my price range by quite a lot.Legobrandon wrote:I dropped my jaw when I read the title, then I read about the shipping charges. No thanks! I'm good with doing trades.
Playing with LEGO when I can. Where does the time go?
