It's over the £18 customs limit so you are likely to get a hefty customs charge!

Brilliant price. Not going to go for it myself because I know I'll never get around to watching it.

It is over, however not by much. The UK Customs limit is £18 without P&P, the boxset on its' own is $38.99 which is approx. £19.75.
From my experience, most Amazon US shipments are being send through Germany, the German limit is 45 Euros (higher limit than the UK - http://www.germany.info/relaunch/info/consular_services/customs/mail.html), so chance is big that it will arrive without any Customs notification - no guarantee though!

Also on a slightly different note, ensure that you pay in USD, the GBP conversion rate Amazon US offers is pretty bad, in most cases your credit card will offer a better rate.

My wife just had a orgasm over this!!

ORDERED!!

Amazon.com stuff comes in via Dusseldorf, ive ordered $99 (£49) worth in Feb this year and I didnt get charged any custom fees at all.

To be on the safe side, select the gift option and add any note you want (free of charge).

I've started doing this as someone mentioned it on another forum and don't get charged customs fees any more especially when you just go over the £18 limit.

Nice! Been waiting for a decent deal on these forever! Works of Genius and no mistake.

Fingers crossed on the 'No Duty' thing - put it through as a gift - we shall see!

Sadly the US edition of the MPFC series are badly censored. I have them. :(
R0 America - The Complete Series - (A&E) - numerous audio/video edits, including:

Episode 19: "It's a Living" - word substitution during the animated Prince and the Black Spot segment: "cancer" is replaced with "gangrene".
Episode 24: missing "Satan Animation"
Episode 31: "The All-England Summarise Proust Competition" - removal of the word 'masturbation' in the Summarizing Proust sketch.
Episode 31: "The All-England Summarise Proust Competition" - removal of the line "what a silly bunt" during the Travel Agent sketch.
Episode 33: "Salad Days" - missing dialogue in the Biggles Dictates a Letter sketch: "I'm not a Spanish person. You must call me-".
Episode 38: missing "Party political choreographer" sketch.
Episode 38: "A Book at Bedtime" - removal of several minutes' footage at the end of the episode.

:thumbsup: Thanks for your post and rep to you. I would have bought this in a flash but now knowing that it's A&E adulterated i'll give it a miss.

Done a little research. Apparently, they wern't edited by A&E - the edits were actually done by the BBC. Unfortunately, the version hat A&E used for the DVDs were these edited versions. They are not edited for the American market, and have been broadcast like this on the BBC. The BBC have broadcast both the original versions and the edited ones at different times.

it's 16 DVDs for £24. hot. so it's missing a couple of minutes, its not the end of the world.

Agreed! It's one of those things that most people woul dnever notice unless they were told, and probably still wouldn't notice even then!
