Did anyone else in the UK get hit with a £12.71 customs charge?
I don't think the other orders have been delivered yet, but I'd expect the same charge for at least some of those.

That's somewhere around a $15 or $16 USD fee which I think is excessive for a ~$25 item.

The U.S. doesn't even have customs charges on items valued under $800.

That’s the UK for you, on top of the regular custom charge, they force in a £8 of “handling fees” which is awful... I guess mine will be charged too...

I received mine and they look great. Good work on getting the disclaimer translated into multiple languages. Thanks a lot!

Maybe because you ordered more, so the price was higher! But yeah, this is absolutely ridiculous!!
Less actually. He only ordered 1 set.

It would seem that the customs fees are either randomly calculated or are inconsistently applied.

Looks great!

I had to pack the multi orders differently to avoid excessive postage.

The single set orders had a reject prototype George McFly paper from the 2014 run that never happened because of problems with PayPal.
I used them as the filler for the shipping boxes.
