Found 27th Nov
Just picked this up for $127.49. Total price in pounds was £133.40 (Cozmo £99.01, Shipping & Handling £12.16, Total before tax £133.40, Estimated tax to be collected £0.00, Import Fees £22.23, Grand Total £133.40).

Shipping option I selected was 'AmazonGlobal Expedited Shipping', so you can get this approx $6 cheaper using standard shipping.

Will this have a uk plug?

It won't have a UK plug, that's certain, but as long as it supports 120v - 240v you'll be good with an adapter like this ebay.co.uk/i/1…t=0

Can anyone confirm it is 120v - 240v ?

One of the reviews here says "If you're getting the US version, you will need a US to UK power plug converter. A simple US twin pin to UK 3-pin is all which is needed (no step-up transformer is required)."

Nope - no additional import fees, see here -> amazon.com/gp/…970

"For AmazonGlobal items, you won't be charged additional fees if the actual Import Fees exceed the Import Fees Deposit we estimated. For items sold by Amazon Marketplace sellers, please check the seller's policies."

I’m tempted

Saw this in Smyths over the weekend. Couldn’t believe how small it was.

Yeah - he's only a little'un. I saw it first at the Digital Kids Show in Manchester recently. I didn't pay it much attention there tbh - looked cute but had never heard of it and didn't know it's capabilities. I found out about Cozmo coding labs and the update to it afterwards (now looks just like 'Scratch' which my kids are familiar with), watched a few youtube vids and I'm pretty convinced it (he?) will be a big hit in our house. Time will tell...

So did you pay $164.72 in total, I’m so tempted but not sure how to explain why its come with a US plug. Also the warranty is a issue.

No - it was $171.78 total (£133.40), but that was with expeditied shipping to arrive 5th -11th Dec.

Total before tax = $143.15
Import fees deposit = $28.63

I called Anki earlier today to ask about customer support and the warranty. Basically they will give the same customer support over the phone via their UK freephone number (https://support.anki.com/hc/en-gb/requests/new), however returns will have to go back to the US, and if they replace the unit they won't cover the supping cost (because it was purchased in the US. I figured that given the saving it was still a good deal, even in the unliklely event I have to send it back for replacement.

I'd prefer a UK plug, but adapters aren't expensive - and a minor inconvenience I can accept when measured against the £45-£50 saving over best UK price I've seen.

Check my pic out !!!

I can't justify this much, but when it eventually goes a bit lower I am sure we will get one of these.
Shame.

I'm taking the bullet

tracker1 - I paid more for shipping (around $15 for AmazonGlobal Expedited Shipping).

mazabits - I don't think so undortunately, would be nice. I think the deposit is amazons estimate of tax due, if the actual tax is more there is no additional charge - if it's less, the difference is refunded. See here -> amazon.com/gp/…797

I’m really wanting it to come down to £159 in the UK again like it was a few days ago

I bought it. £127 is best price so far

I wonder how good amazon would be if this went faulty, in the uk they just send you a return label and a replacement in most cases.

Cheers op.

My lad is 9 and he’s really careful with his stuff but it’s when he has a friend around, they always break something

Any opinion about this vs Lego Boost? I guess Cozmo has more "personality", but they are both robots that use a scratch like programming interface. I'm wondering if Boost might be more versatile? It's also easy to find for £120 or less from UK based sellers.

Weird tings, this deal disappeared for me all afternoon, like had a message saying "this page does not exist", now its back!? Just wanted to thank the OP for the info. I noticed on youtube vids its just a USB adapter for power anyway. If they still provide warranty, that makes this a no brainier. Fire. I ordered

Happy I ordered last night because the price has gone up now

Well spotted - it's back up to $149. Still much cheaper than buying from the UK, but glad I got in there yesterday.
