    I've been thinking that depending on ShowZ's ability to stock goods it might be interesting for European and UK buyers if they developed a "pile of loot" system and ship several items in one package to offset the import fees.
    It would be fair to pay ShowZ a fee for providing such a service, but even then it might be better than to pay import fees on every single item we buy from them.

    Not really for Legends and other small items, everything under € 150 is still import duties free.
    So you have handling fee + tax (made a mistake the post earlier), still not bad.
    I doubt they will open every parcel for a manual check, they do not have the manpower now to do so and they never had.
    They will just go by invoice and collect what money they can and still do the random select pick outs.
    For me no problem, my main store always gives a low price on the invoice, so did Show Z with MS Prime
    It can suck for those who collect the more costly MP's tough.


    It is time for the chinese sellers to bundle force and create a EU warehouse, like some KO lego stores have and Gearbest.
    I have no problem offering my service Show Z :D :D

    :lol 
    You seem pretty confident all will be well. I'm not that knowledgeable, but won't it be easier for them to pounce on every package from outside the EU if that's the only criteria?
    VAT will still be 30 euros for a package declared at -21 euros.

    Update:

    Well... it is now over 60 days since I purchased my X-Transbots Swarm 3-Pack from Show.Z, and I am still not even sure if my package has left the continent.

    The last tracking update was from 19 May 2021.

    Capture+_2021-06-13-08-34-57~2.png

    I'm trying to remain positive, but after 60 days... its not looking good for the Sweeps.

    I emailed Kelsi at Show.Z yesterday. Hopefully they can take some action to find out what is going on with my XTB Swarm pack.

    That might be true. Buying from China was always a big discount operation. The fact of the matter is that we'll now have to pay what these always costed in our own countries.


    Nice idea. But I doubt ShowZ will store all of our packages until we are ready to have them shipped ;) 
    I'm afraid there's no getting out from under this.

    It took my Superitron 80 days to show up so if you had it shipped by SAL you may be in for a little bit longer of a wait.

    Just quick in Dutch from Rijksoverheid. (Voor pakketjes tot € 22 die u binnen de EU koopt, betaalt u al btw. Vanaf 1 juli geldt dit dus ook voor online aankopen buiten de EU, En voor aankopen boven de € 150 betaalt u meestal invoerrechten bij de Douane. Die invoerrechten zijn een percentage van het aankoopbedrag, tot 12%. Uw post- of pakketbedrijf doet aangifte bij de Douane. Voor die administratieve werkzaamheden rekent uw post- of pakketbedrijf vaak een vergoeding: de 'inklaringskosten'. Die inklaringskosten verschillen per vervoerder. ).
    According to post NL you will get up to € 150 only 4 or 7 euro handling fee (depending you pay online) we are Dutch so I assume you will go for the chepaest way.
    € 21 purchase + 4 handling fee + 21% tax over € 21 (21 + 4 = 25 + 4.41 = 29.41, again not that bad. and I am willing to pay that.

    Maybe translating will be more informative if you haven't already. As @Blingotron said he waited a long time to get his Superitron and many others told me when I was questioning a shipment that it's taken 70 to 90 days numerous times to receive a package with SAL. I've personally had two packages get selected by customs to be checked and that slows things down even more so there are multiple reasons for these International parcels to get slowed down to a snail's pace. 20210613_104328.jpg

    Whats the tracking number? Have you tried Universal Parcel Tracking - Global Package Tracking ? I find they often have more updates than others, its probably in a f***ing Pitney Bowes black hole.

    I have a package from showz went onto Air France's plane then never showed up again, it's without any update for almost 3 months now. I couldn't even tracking the info on 17track since it always shows "Expired" now.
    I wonder if anyone has similar experience? Will package like this ever show up again later?

    I don't see why they can't when other webshops can.
    Yes. That's what I said: We will have to pay roughly 30 euro un import fees for each package.
    That's why it would still save us some money if several items could be packes in one package.

    If there's a TOP seller in this world, that seller is @ShowZStore the most trustworthy of the all TF web-stores. Thank you very much for your efforts, seriously. :)  You're amazing.

    Now my Frenzy has two cannons! And the arm of my Cliffjumper is totally perfect and functional!. Thanks to Jane and David for the patience.

    Hi, you forgot to answer my question,
    Will it be possible to get the coronation set by buying the MP-52 and the two MP-520 in your store?

    Thank's. :)

    Kelsi got in touch with me and let me know that my XTB Swarm 3-Pack made it to NYC!!

    Capture+_2021-06-15-18-21-40~2.png

    It made it to New York!! So close NOW!! I can drive up to NYC in two hours!!

    But I guess with U.S. customs, I guess it might still be another two weeks (or two months) before I my Andras can command his Swarm!

    20201221_174754_HDR~2.jpg

    C'mon customs officers!! Release our packages to us!! We need our Swarm!

    @PredakingSP , you certainly have your hands full! I look forward to seeing your photos on the 3P page! I won't complain if you throw a Voltron photo or two in there either.
