This boxset was briefly (for about a week at the end of November) retailing on here for £116.20 - now back to £149.99.

Any idea why this was - and is it likely to drop as low again? I was going to buy it at the lower price, but missed out - and now I'm just keeping a watching brief :o)

Then again, on amazon.com, it is selling for $129.99, which equates to £82.44 (exchange rate from xe.com). Why the huge discrepancy?

Those selling it for £149.99 are probably genuine; those selling it for £84.99 (which I've just noticed) aren't. Maybe whomever was selling it for £116.20 realised they could get more.

Why the price difference? Tax. But don't be tempted to buy one from the USA, as once you've added import duty and VAT on to the price, you won't save anything.

Ah, good point about import duties. However, I'm still miffed that the Americans can buy it for so much less than us >:-<

The £116.20 price was the *Amazon* selling price for the genuine item, not a marketplace seller. I'm kicking myself for not picking it up, especially as they've raised it again, to £163.19...

I bought one from an Amazon seller for £60 inc postage and it was sealed and genuine.
