I recommend http://www.dvdboxoffice.com, which is Canadian site selling DVD's world wide with free shipping. They have the MSCL Box set (no bonus materials ofcourse) and I know they are thrustworthy. I've ordered from them many times and I live in Sweden. Delivery is about two weeks to here. Sometimes faster.

The same goes for http://www.dvdsoon.com - Canadian store, free worldwide shipping (at the moment), and often you don't even have to pay customs (they always write "value CAD$ 12" on the envelope). I ordered the "Firefly" DVD Set and "Finding Nemo" recently there, both arrived within 9 days in Europe.

The MSCL box set currently costs CAD$ 84.98 (about 52.38 EUR).

Shopping overseas is really fun at the moment thanks to the weak US-Dollar :-)

I've never had to pay customs from dvdboxoffice.

Hmm, checking out dvdsoon. They seem to be less expensive on a lot of dvds. Are you sure about no customs? :)

I ordered about five, six times at dvdsoon in the past years and never had any problems. (The only time I ever had to pay customs was when I ordered at amazon.ca and did request express delivery by DHL). But there are recently some mentions of problems with customs and dvdsoon in dvd forums in Germany. Obviously a few officers at customs in Frankfurt got suspicious because of the large amounts of big packets with only a declared value of CAD$12... :shock:

BTW, I don't know how long dvdsoon will offer the free shipping. It may be a time limited special.

And now it looks like dvdsoon changed their policy regarding the value declaration :-( :-( :

From another forum:
Dear Sir;

Your local customs has recently contacted us in regards to our declarations. If we wish to continue shipping items within your country we have no choice but to declare the correct value of the product. As of December 22nd we have begun to do so. I apologize for the inconvenience.
