Yes, we have six regional warehouses around the world to minimize shipping costs as much as possible to fans. Thanks for the support! Looking forward to hearing that you love War when he arrives!

Earlybird price in main europe is quite high at minimum 650usd excluding 65usd shipping.

I would expect more benefit, if there is a warehouse already.

Unfortunately, while there are no customs fees because of the regional warehouses, we are now required to charge sales tax in the EU and UK as part of the item price.

Yep it really sucks.

Shows how long it's been since I ordered because it confused the hell out of me.

Problem is F4F prices have always been great and no VAT was always a major selling point...but now when there's suddenly an extra $100+ on top it makes you really think.

$590 is a great price for the piece but $708 + shipping to the UK is super pushing it.

Exclusive direct from F4F works out about 580 shipped...I can get a Regular for 495 here in the UK...

I have over $400 in RP to use so i'll be getting War direct but Death i might just go for a Reg.

Also add to the fact I've picked up both Alucard EX and Snake EX for well under retail (saved about 120-150 on each) here in the UK...might be time to hang up getting the EX direct for me.

Is it really? It looks the same as the mixed media. Kudos to them on matching the hood closely.

What I think they should implement on the next one, "Death"... They should have his loin cloth a separate detachable piece with a magnet. Those little fragile cloth pieces won't break off if there in the box separated. For example: I have an Akuma statue from Prototypez Studios, that has his belt separate from the body, that keys in on the waist.

Well i guess I fall in my 10% right now. The price is a bit high but for me it's the Stygian setting, it's my least favorite part of the game so the base doesn't do it for me.
I love the light up though, particularly on the forehead! I do wish the Choaseater had a little bit of purple light up as well and we had a switch out for the Armaggedon sword but overall it's a nice statue really.

Having said that, the Death preview looks Ace so I hope I like that one

Maybe the EX-Death will be even better than War.
So you can also use the points later on.

I had a long break also.
The three statues I PO from P1 & XM sinds then, are roughly same amount as my whole SS collection.

Anyway.. Taxes in europe are way to high, you pay big time when you earn your money and you pay again when you spend it.
