    The season 1+2 boxes have been shown on this website for US fans. Play.com had season 1 available for pre-order but that's changed to vol 1 which is 4 episodes only. So instead of a box set we're gonna have to buy several volumes released intermittently!

    On top of the many pictures of toys that people take with the receipt it seems that prices in USD are the same in £UK - exchange rate depending that's 150-200% mark-up.

    Please read the rules:

    Well, the UK's part of Europe, and everybody knows that Europeans aren't really people anyways, so they can be screwed over as much as possible. :p 

    Oh no worries, we can also keep on waitin' for a whole year for games to be released like half a year after US anyways.

    Australia has the same problem, dont start thinking your plight is any more special then other places. your dollar didnt drop close to 40cents to the american dollar with the economic world crisis.

    i think volume three (well technically volume 2 if you discount the movie one) is due out in December 2 months after the first volume was released.

    Everyone outside the US gets screwed on releases and prices. Yadda yadda yadda.
    Get used to it.

    I was a little annoyed that Season 1 was being released in volumes here in AU but as long as we dont miss out on a collected release entirely its not that big a deal.

    four words...

    MULTI. REGION. DVD. PLAYER.


    Works for me. Picked it up on region 1 dvd for £15 off ebay.


    (and I know DVD is three words in itself, but lets say for the sake of argument it's just one word)
