Im in the UK and I have tried a vpn too in germany and still no luck.
If you're going for multiple items sure. But paying for more than half of item cost for shipping and not any different in terms of protection like Amazon.Just checked and amazon.de may not be "live", or somehow already temp sold out. The other 2 stores are showing in stock. Try fnac france, 35euro for the 4k version of the same steel.
