I pity the fool who falls for the inevitable 'collectors/investment' hype.

There are lofts full of collectibles from the seventies and eighties which, in real terms, are worth less than they cost to buy.

But please, don't let me put you off, it will sit nicely with your Power Ranger Top Trumps.

I ordered 3 and it brought the price down to £22.09 each!

Pre ordered 2, one to keep sealed and one to sell eventually

I can't believe that some people would really buy something and then never actually look at it. I'm all for buying it and taking care of it so that you don't damage it but buying it and not using it just seems like a waste.

Big fan of the series and Nintendo in general, so I'd be stupid not to get this.
Btw, it's showing up for £22.09 for me on Amazon.

While that statement is generally true, that doesn't really apply to LOZ merchandise. There are some VERY avid fans out there that will pay top dollar when this hardback goes out of production.

As a comparison only, it's $20.99 on Amazon.com - seems they get 40% off in the USA, while the UK only get 15% 0ff oO.
Perhaps it may drop further in the UK

Hmmm... 2 copies ordered from Amazon.com comes to £34.40 delivered. Is it worth the Customs risk?

VERY avid fans who didn't buy their own copy. Go figure?

Thanks heat added grabbed 2 of these.

Thanks OP, ordered one.

For Zelda fans: GAME is doing 3 for 2 on Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword Limited Edition Strategy Guide for £20 (usual price £10 each). Just add 3 books and price should change accordingly.

Wow not out for a while yet! Maybe they're hoping you'll pre-order now and forget about it.. although it does have the pre-order price guarantee.

There's no Zelda 2 Link on the front cover. I know it's not very well liked because it was side-scrolling but come on, it was my favourite X)

Awesome ordered, thanks op.

I don't think books can be taxed at customs

im not sure why people are expecting this to be some sort of limited edition thing?

the ltd edition one is the 25th anniversary one. Think this is a reprint

I am so tempted to pre order 2 of them, but ill hold off until now, this is obviously not limited. I still don't understand why they didn't make the 25 year anniversary edition available to UK...

Price is £22.09. Pre ordered, voted HOT

The one you linked to is the Japanese version, which is being translated and expanded in the version for this deal.

You're assuming that the supply of fans is finite. Unless Nintendo scrap the franchise at some point (doubtful), there will e fresh fans discovering LOZ for the first time, all of the time.
Yes - this may not be worth anything in the future.
There's always that possibility. But 'gaming' hardbacks generally don't have a very large print run.
I'd say it's worth a punt, but just my 2 cents....

came up 20.99 when i checked out

Thank you.

how did you get it to 20.99?

So Tempted.do we know the size of the book?

£22.09 when I ordered @ jetpac its A4 and 272 pages

Definitely ordering one for myself - very interested to read it in english! Only question is - do I order one to potentially sell several years down the line!

Hell, I'll order 2, they don't take money until it's despatched so I'll cancel if I want to... Long time until January!
