Lots of Aniplex of America titles on Sale this year - the big one was March Comes In Like a Lion, with each of the four releases being $60 off the normal Rightstuf price, so I grabbed all four for $280, a $240 savings. So glad I didn't have to pay full price for the series before it went OOP. Part Four is now listed as "No Longer Available" at RS.

I got parts 3 & 4 of March Comes Like a Lion from RS a few years back in a sale.

They reduced the MSRP by 50% off it looks like in order to process the 30% off sitewide discount, which is weird because it wasn't like that earlier today. It showed the original 59.98 MSRP and the discounted price of 20.99 AUD

Standard MSRP for most anime is 59.98 AUD.
Have ya imported off them before tempted to grab the sailor moon complete set

Yes I have but I live in the US. They aren't shipping to the UK. You'll need to use a forwarder if you're a UK resident or a friend.

Their shipping takes about 1-3 months. Once the item ships out, you can request a refund of the 10% GST, which covers a portion of the shipping.

I've found the sweet spot to maximize the shipping cost is 3 blurays or 8 blurays. The shipping cost for 3 is 12 AUD and for 8 is 32 AUD, so roughly 4 AUD per item intl shipping

Am I seeing that postage charge correctly
Yeah, holy crap. How heavy is that limited edition to be $60 AUD shipping? The most I've seen myself was $32 AUD for 8 blurays.

When I ordered 8 BDs it was only $32 AUD shipping. You might as well check to see if you can add on some of the blurays from the "Awesome Anime 50% off" sale and see if the shipping doesn't go up, to maximize that shipping cost.

You should be able to get $20 AUD back from GST refund upon emailing customer service, so total cost should be in the ballpark of £132

Keep in mind this set is only 30% off. This offer ends on the 28th Australia time so since it's a preorder, maybe it's worth it to wait till the last day and see if they throw in an additional 10% off coupon.

Edit: @Dai in the pictures thread mentioned a UK seller on ebay was £156. That might be more worth it if you have to pay customs as well on entry.

Thanks. I would have missed this.
Went in this morning and one of the staff told me it's on all week. I assume until Friday.
I got Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun Blu-ray for £14.25.
Amazon seem to be matching the HMV sale for some items with a voucher at checkout. I picked up Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun (£14.25) and Okko‘s Inn (£4.50)

(I also had a £7 voucher using a Hub Locker for the first time so the total cost was only £11.73!)
