    For those that have used them... do you know if they will mark down the value of a package for customs?

    Cheers

    No, they will not. In fact, they explicitly state that they will list the full price, fees, taxes, whatever. They will not, for any reason, for anyone lie to customs.

    So if you're buying from them, prepare to pay a chunk of change.

    As AnimatedFan says, no they don't mark down stuff. Expect to pay customs and Parcel Force handling fees not to mention VAT.

    robotkigdom sucks just as bad! if you want a decent online UK store then your best bet is Kapow-toys BUT if you want a cheap US online store then try ToyArena.com OR do what i do, try on ALL tf forums and HAGGLE

    Sol's rules of online shopping, number 1:

    When buying from overseas, budget at least an extra £20-30 on top of shipping in customs charges (depending on what you are buying).

    It's a fact of life, I just assume I'm getting charged whenever I buy anything from overseas. Hence I'm buying more and more from UK sites like Kapow.

    They used to have the mark as a gift option, or am I thinking of somewhere else? Didn't pay any customs for City Commander and I think that was why.
