I agree with what you're saying here and I do think a lot will be waiting for price drops.Sorry, but £50? I'd struggle to justify paying that if this was a steelbook. The high price and relatively large print run aren't a good fit for a film like this- one that has a moderate cult following but isn't on enough people's 'must own now' list to sell anything like that number. I think there's going to be a lot of waiting for a price drop.
I don't have to worry about VAT because I live in California, so there are no additional fees for me to pay. Never in my life have I had to pay import fees. Too bad it's a different story for many of you. Would be a bit of a nightmare if I had to worry about extra fees each time I bought something from another country.@MM3
Customers based in UK ordering from second sight the price is £49.99 before shipping as UK Vat is included in price
Second Sight remove UK vat from price at checkout if your delivery address is outside UK
They not registered for IOSS this why they remove UK vat from price for customers with a EU delivery address
Ordering from Second Sight Website If you based in EU
You will have customs (postal carrier in your EU country) look for EU vat payment + handling fee for collecting payment as EU vat is not included in your purchase
The reason why second sight remove UK vat from price for customers based in EU is so they don't end up paying both UK vat and EU vat as in pay vat twice
Amazon UK for a delivery address in EU will remove UK vat from price and then apply EU vat at checkout based on what the vat rate is for your country as they are registered for vat in each EU country directly
So Amazon UK price before shipping will be about the same £50 or more for customers in EU and includes EU vat
This applies to items where amazon is the seller or a item fulfilled by amazon
If you based in USA amazon websites in UK/Europe/Japan also remove Vat from price at checkout they always did this and that has nothing to do with UK leaving EU
Amazon UK might drop price but that will depend on what price HMV sell at when each retailer list as available
I agree Mate, I think it looks really nice and I'm sure will look even better in hand.I think the slipcase cover looks better than the Steelbook-one. That 2-face thing with his dark half is looking awesome.
Yeah unfortunately we get stung on everything over in the UK with VatI don't have to worry about VAT because I live in California, so there are no additional fees for me to pay. Never in my life have I had to pay import fees. Too bad it's a different story for many of you.

A lot of people still purchase music on CD and Vinyl
Licencing a soundtrack that has various artists involved can be lot more expensive to licence than a film scoreBut it´s a difference, if a Soundtrack CD is part of a collector´s edition or sold seperately. I wouldn´t buy the most ones then, but as part of a collector´s edition It´s ok and rounds it. I still have Basic Instinct and The Isle as Collector´s editions with DVD and Soundtrack. I would have sold them if it was without the Soundtrack.
The last one I bought with V.A. was "The Green Room" soundtrack on CD. Because the movie has very much music in it I wondered why the soundtrack wasn´t part of any edition for it. That explains it.Licencing a soundtrack that has various artists involved can be lot more expensive to licence than a film score
The differene can be huge amount depending on artists involved
If this had been a film score instead it would been cheaper to include a CD
The soundtrack has not been available on CD for years long sold out and Vinyl edition would cost you over £100 with third party sellers
Just get the standard edition then when it's released it will have the same 4K UHD and Blu-ray discs
