Very "Attack Of The Clones" bounty hunter looking Lego-style building block action figure. Currently on flash sale for just £5.92 delivered from our good friends at GearBest. Looks like it would Fett the bill very nicely.

Cheap at twice the price.

Cold. Items like this shouldn't be allowed on this site. Fake Lego.
Fake....
Fake, unlicensed, stolen intellectual property.
Most likely customs fraud will be committed as they usually mark it as gift on declaration.

But as HUKD gets a cut so it is ok.

By buying from China you're also ripping off Royal Mail and making UK customers pay more for postal services.

A win win situation for everyone

What about Royal Mail's £7 admin fee when one has to pay custom charges, isn't that a rip-off!?! ;-)
This is fake. But a damn good one. I bought the stormtrooper for £3 as a stocking filler for my 4 year old. He loved building it. Now I know he likes them I will buy the official ones. The official figures are about £20. This is great to see if your child will appreciate this kind of toy.

Well its all thanks to the archaic Universal Postal Union and it's rules formed before e-commerce and mail order shopping. The rules state that postal authorities should give equal treatment to foreign and domestic mail and each country should retain all money it has collected for international postage.
Royal Mail does not get a penny for delivery of mail from abroad but it still costs them the same if not more that domestic mail. In a perfect world there would be an equal volume of mail flowing in each direction and that would cover the costs. Reality is different and that's why 2kg tracked airmail parcel from China to UK costs around £0.50 but to send it back it's £25. Each time you're sending an international letter or a parcel, you're in effect subsidising all the cheap Chinese tat.

There is also issue of taxes, child labour, forced labour, etc etc

Have you any idea when custom charges are due? I'll give you a clue - it certainly isn't when (the cost of the item) + (postage) = £5.92. So there would be no need to declare this as a gift.

And do you really think "genuine" items aren't manufactured by way of unscrupulous means? Or that the companies aren't using every scam under the sun to avoid paying taxes? How about all that fresh fruit and vegetables, dairy products etc, that you buy to live? You're happy enough for the big supermarkets etc to rip off farmers so they can charge cheap prices? Or when you come back from holidays and saunter on through the customs "green" channel, knowing fine well you have something stashed in your suitcase that customs charges are due on.

So you go on back to chewing the altar rails, and hope you don't get an extremely large chunk stuck in your throat for your hypocritical comments.

I have both the stormtrooper and Captain Phasma and, as you say, extremely high quality. The stormtrooper is a tad off-white though.
Why then don't we see HUKD deals for extremely high quality but way cheaper copies of gucci bags or rolex watches? Oh I know. It's criminal.
But then who am I to tell you that. I have no idea how it feels to have such dilemma: real ugg's or £10 ones from the fakes market.
