This looks awesome, but why do we never get anything like this released in the UK? I find it quite frustrating. The same happened with the Forbidden Planet HD DVD, we got a rubbish DVD and they got an all-singing all-dancing special edition! Shame!

Just like we missed out on the 5 disc Blu-Ray release of Blade Runner, while we in the UK only got 2 discs and one was a DVD, all for the same price.

Exactly. I know Warner are region free (is that true?), but if so, why not release them world wide instead of making us import them?

This website lets you know if a Blu-Ray film is region free or not, you will see all Warner films are.

I guess they are just greedy studios,

That's just the standard version with the usual free postcards that Play like to throw in.

I have not seen a single UK retailer say they are selling the Collectors Edition, they all have the standard one.

Here is the Standard edition on PlayUSA for £13.99.
Here is the Deluxe Edition on PlayUSA for £17.99
Here is the Standard Edition on MovieTyme for £14.99.
Here is the Deluxe Edition on MovieTyme for £22.99.

Even on AmazonUK they have only the standard edition.
HMV seem to only have the standard Edition as well for £17.99.
Standard Edition at Sendit.com for £16.99.
No sign on any UK website that there are even going to be 2 sets to choose from, just one standard one.

Movietyme
This USA Blu-ray title requires a Blu-ray compatible player


Not region free by the look of it.


EDIT - Sorry for the double post - don't know what happened there!

Play, put that on all films, ALL Warner films are Region Free, Customs start after £18.

All info is in the original post at top.

Here is an example, PlayUSA say that Blade Runner 5 Blu-Ray disc is Region protected, when we all know it is not, in fact I have my US import right here.
#12
Movietyme however list all region free as such and they say a compatable player is required.

As shown in their Blade runner box set:

http://www.movietyme.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=37451

It may be because its a pre-order and they haven't tested it yet but it's not guaranteed to be region free as far as I can see.

Looks like a good deal. I looked online and HM customs says:

If you purchase goods through the Internet you should be aware that customs duty and VAT will be payable, as follows:

Customs duty - if the amount of duty is £7 and over.
Import VAT - if the value of the goods is £18 and over.

there is a table of charges but looks like 3% of value on customs duty?

Why do people just not listen...?

Again I say there are NO extra charges to pay.

Your Customs Allowance

Customs charges may only be applied from goods sent into the UK from outside the EU. Orders from within have already had the relevant VAT and duty paid in that EU member state. Jersey is not classed as within the EU, but as a Special Territory , and as such are liable to VAT.
The current allowances for DVDs, CDs and the such are £18, or £36 for gifts.
If an item is VAT-exempt (such as books), you will not be liable for charges on those items
Postage and packing must be remembered. If the total value of goods in the package that are liable to duty and VAT is less than £18 WITHOUT P&P, you will not be liable for a charge. If the total value of goods in the package exceeds £18, the VAT and duty is charged on the total value of the goods INCLUDING P&P
The £36 allowance for gifts only applies to unsolicited gifts from one individual to another (such as a birthday present). Goods marked as "gifts" from a company fall in to the same category as any other purchases and so the £18 allowance applies.(cheers Ed Parsons).


How the charge is calculated

Customs (Import) Duty of 3.5%
VAT @ 17.5% - the VAT is charged on the value of the goods PLUS the customs duty
Administration charge of the courier

For example, if the cost of goods and P&P comes to £30, you would have the following:
£30 for goods
£1.05 customs (import) duty
£5.43 VAT on £31.05

The administration charge of the courier varies. Here are the current charges you can expect:

Royal Mail £8.00 (RM site )
Parcelforce - £8 for standard parcels, £13.50 for high value (> €1000) and express parcels. (Thanks to DeadKenny for this info). (Parcel Force )
DHL £1.25 or 2% (whichever is greater) for non-business users (DHL site - Information - About Duty & Vat for more information).
UPS is £11or 2.5% (whichever is greater) UPS site in section marked "Disbursements" (Thanks to Chris for the info and smst for update 14/02/06).
FedEx personal handling charge is 2.5% of the combined duty & vat charge (not including total value of goods) or £6.80 (whichever is greater) as of Jan08 (thanks to Chris for the update). If you have been charged more than this, you have probably been charged the business rate and should query this (cheers cm-9 for the info). As before they do not charge or inform you at time of delivery. Instead they send you an invoice in the post up to a month later (they also include a copy of the original customs declaration and a breakdown of the charge)

Another important factor is the value of the goods. If the value is not declared in GBP, HMC&E will use their own monthly rates to convert the value to GBP. The monthly rates are checked once a week and changes made if they differ by more than 5% from the last published rate and amended from midnight on Tuesday/ Wednesday of the following week. (Source - http://www.hmce.gov.uk/business/rates/rates.htm ).

HMC&E can also value the item(s) if they feel that the declared value is false, and will apply what they feel the value should be and you will be charged accordingly.

How you pay

With packages coming in through Royal Mail, the postman will leave a note telling you that you have an item with a charge at your local delivery office, and you will have to go and collect it. If they leave it/hand it over and do not collect any money, you have got away with it.

Couriers such as FedEx, DHL and the such will normally pay the VAT & duty on your behalf and invoice you some time later. Be careful to check that they have only charged you the non-business user rate of admin charge - if it is around £10 or more, they have mistakenly charged you the business rate and you should take it up with them.

If you think you have been overcharged or charged incorrectly on the customs charge, you will need to contact HMC&E - they have a national advice line on 0845 010 9000 which is a good starting point.
