There's something I need help with if anyone in the UK is able and willing. I'd like to buy this item...
...but the seller won't ship to the US. Here's my solution:
Say I buy it and have it shipped to a fellow AA member, then have them ship to me at my expense plus some extra for the trouble. It's a title I've been trying to acquire BOXED for about 10 years now.
You can also use package forwarding . The service itself usually runs about $30-$40 + cost for them to ship it to you. I haven't done UK, but I have done it with Japan, France and Canada several times with no issues. Main thing is to look for a reputable company and double check with the seller that it is the item you want in the condition you want and specify these things to the package forwarder person. Otherwise, you may end up paying $35 to have someone receive and return a related, but wrong, item. Also, have the forwarder send you pictures when they receive it, if possible. At least then you can avoid paying the over-seas shipping if the seller ships the wrong item and the forwarder doesn't realize the difference like you would.
