This seems to be a really difficult set to get any kind of deal on. I started to trawl through the various amazon european sites to see if I could get the price down. Amazon's Italian site are currently doing it for 184 euros + 8 for delivery making it roughly £155 delivered. I've bought a few things from Amazon Italy and they've arrived, as you'd expect, well packaged and fairly quickly.

go to amazon.it and log in with UK account

but what about the import tax or parcel force handleing charges ??? to save £10-20 isn't worth it. you will be charged more in tnport tax and handling charges

There are no import duties on European Union goods. As long as you have paid the Italian VAT there should be no other charges.

Shhh don't tell everyone I've had one of these lined up for weeks!

Best price, however I have bought a couple of pricey lego sets from EU amazon stores in the past as it was cheaper, and both times the boxes were damaged - crucial if youre a collector or looking to sell on in future.

Was it easy to get a refund?

Just ordered, thanks!
A bit dubious because of big_lloyd saying both his boxes were damaged, but fingers crossed.......

If you happen to be going to the states it's $199.99 according to Lego.com so about £120 there, just a thought.

The two times I've ordered they've been fine. If the box did turn up damaged, I'd complain and get it replaced or ask for a discount.

They're part of the EU, but know nothing about it

Wish I had the doh to buy this.

heathergreen1, thanks so much for this post. I've been holding off on buying this for ages in the hope that it would be reduced. I've no idea how it'll integrate into my Lego Star Wars collection though. Heat added.

Love it, and same comment as Sunkenvilla above. I know its cool as a concept, but the actual models don't actually look that refined, kinda Friday afternoon efforts tbh.. voted hot tho...

Got one for my 30th from some work colleagues, ifs great as long as you have a spare 12 hours to do it.

Dear for a few bits of lego but soooo cool lol

*ignore my last comment*

looks amazing shame about the price!!

So cool

knew It would go down after I gave in and bought it! amazing set, worth the 6-7 hours work!

You were absolutely right BL, the box turned up crushed. The packaging on such a large item was woeful. I refused delivery. They might as well have wrapped it in tissue paper!

Mine was supposed to be delivered on Friday, but seems to have gone missing. On Amazon, the furthest it has reached on the tracking is 'Shipped' and Citylink don't even recognise the tracking number on their website! I requested a callback from Amazon Italy, but the first time the operator didn't speak/understand English. However, the second time the operator spoke very good English and was very helpful. She said that if I still haven't received it by Thursday, she will either send a replacement or give me a refund.

That is almost exactly how it played out for me, but mine eventually turned up yesterday. The packaging was appalling. Shoved into a box with no bubble wrap or anything. The box was crushed so I refused the delivery. Anyhoo, hope you fair better!

No sign of it today either - to be honest, I don't hold out much hope of it arriving now. Would be good if either Toys R Us or Smyths did 20% off again, as that would bring it down to £144.

No it didn't, so looks like I'll be getting a refund. Have you been refunded yet?

Not so far. Hopefully in time for the 20% off sale!

Got email today saying they couldn't send a replacement as they didn't have any stock, so have refunded me.

Hmm, so the one they sent me was knackered and yours got lost. Not sure if it's a Citilink problem or an Amazon one. Hey ho, at least they've confirmed your refund. I get the feeling I might have a while to wait on that issue.

If Citylink take as long to get it back to Italy as they did to get it to you, you may be right! It's not exactly a small amount that you won't miss either
