I'm gonna keep this one brief. A full set of mint-condition 2001 Matoran for $64.99. That makes less than $11 a piece.
Sweet deal, right?
Add $7.50 for shipping to a friend in the States, because the seller doesn't ship overseas.
Add $48.00 for shipping to me, because I am not having the affordable service with a 75% success rate in delivery.
Still a sweet deal, right?
Add a 20% VAT on the entire total at customs, then several small "service" fees for retrieving and releasing my "goods."
Still a sweat deal... right?
Update: As it turns out, I had to pay a smaller tax at customs than I'd originally anticipated. Then when I inspected the package closely, I found out it had been marked as a gift, so not only could I have avoided the tax, but it was practically illegal for customs to tax me.
In any case, yes, the Tohunga sets are entirely worth it. YOLO.
