Just received my Fr0G! Very Happy - It's a Swamp Dwllr - so pleased with that!

I ended up phoning my local parcel force depot yesterday and paid for customs over the phone. You don't actually have to wait for the bill to arrive in the post. The charge was £19.61, strangely. £6.11 of that was import VAT & £13.50 was 'clearance fee'. It's a shame really as the value of the item was marked as $25, which is only just over the threshold to have to pay customs in the UK. If it was $20 or even $23 then it would probably have been fine.

Oh well, very pleased that I've got it now anyway.. - Definitely a firm favourite. Very Happy Though I am looking forward to a Fr0zn version to go with the rest of the Fr0zn squad. Hopefully, get my hands on one when they drop for real.

Man, i really feel for you guys over in the UK. Your customs fees are outrageous!!! Shocked

If the seller puts a lower value on an item to go through customs, isnt he/she at risk of mail fraud? Also if the item gets damaged, you wont be able to get the full insured value.

If I send something to the UK and place a value of $25 on the package and Priority Mail already includes free insurance up to $75. Lets say it gets damaged the buyer can only claim $25 and is out the rest of the money he paid for the item. As a buyer, I would hate to take that risk.

Glad yours turned up! Sorry to hear bout the charges! Its crazy really, seeing as the contents of the box are only '$25' yet the charges cost more than the contents!!! (well not technically true I know, but as far as customs are concerned its only $25 Wink )
Its the fees that are the killer- £13.50!!! and for what, most will end up going to collect it from the depot so its not like they even have to deliver the item.
Was really lucky with mine as it was marked as $25 too, a narrow escape from a charge.

Just collected mine and its just so awesome in the flesh. So glad I managed to grab one- sorry for everyone that missed out, but at least fr0g S002 and S003 still to come. Can't wait to shoot some photos Very Happy
One slightly random thing I noticed was that one of my flippers on fr0g is slightly larger than the other cyclops
Bit weird, only really noticed when I took em off- bout half cm longer/shorter (def not mixed up with K11's as they are way smaller). Not a major thing, and can't really notice when they are on his feet but just thought id mention it Laughing

it's a lottery! I thought that only the Italian customs were thieves. But it's so all over europe. I since I had to pay 88 euros to clear two small parcels of Squadt. I cursed, paid and from now on I always declare less than $ 30, and I always prefer one value less than $ 10. If you say $ 30, pay 10 euros for customs.
Should communicate before shipping so you do declare only $ 9.50 or $ 11.50. However, the customs are bastards.

I always buy the first, pre-order, not to pay taxes and they do that when the package arrives to put a tax that they do not understand how to calculate

Congrats on the arrival. Mine's supposed to arrive tomorrow. Supposedly they tried two or three times to deliver it. Funny thing is I only got one notice - the FINAL NOTICE. Weird.
