Hi Paul,
Thank you for the deal alert. The one thing I’ve finally managed to learn is don’t hesitate. Get the deal and count the cost later. I’ve been pondering getting this for two years on and off and have missed a few opportunities but not this time! Got one :) Should receive it tomorrow.


Gone. Crap! Needed that.


Fantastic box and while it lasted that was a fantastic price. I got this a few years ago from Amazon U.S., which also had a great price for a few days, although much higher (about $108 USD) than this price. But then Amazon took months to ship it to me – the site kept saying they were in stock but mine just wouldn’t ship. I think they were trying to get me to cancel the order at that price.


What’s going on here?
You guys came an hour later and managed to get one?
Just checked and it’s over €100


Good luck to all that order from Amazon.de. With flimsy boxes and zero protective packaging, items almosy arrive in condition which make the discounted price seem like a complete ripoff.


Hey Barry, I got a similar experience with amazon.de whe n i ordered the here comes the nice box set. The packaging was destroyed, the box was dented. I live in the states and i emailed them they immediately sent me a new one and i shipped back the old one, told them how much it cost me and they reimbursed me. That was pretty sweet of them.

I hesitated too long reading up about the set. Now I know I want it so will keep an eye out for the next alert and just go for it!


And to make me feel worse, it’s £276 on Amazon UK


Huh? £88 on Amazon UK.


It’s gone up again. Thanks anyway.
