Just a note, that for some of us not in the US, we will be paying customs and VAT on those.
So add 17.5% for those in UK + fedex admin fee, and add 21% + fedex admin fee for those in the Ireland.

Is there a limit (and do you know what it is) before customs and/or VAT are added to imports in Ireland? Nothing I've imported from America has had added charges, but I've never even broken $50 in one order.

be happy . Here I would have to pay about $50 for transportation then another 126% over the combined price of transportation + product in taxes.

"Gifts from one private individual to another up to the value of 45 and commercial shipments up to 22 are usually exempt from VAT and Duty. "

Having bought lots of gear from the US to Ireland, fedex doesn't miss a beat on collection, and usually you have to pay COD or Credit Card to fedex before they will deliver.

USPS (United States Postal Service) Have a fantastic record of timely delivery and link to An Post perfectly every time. As a result of this though, customs may be overlooked from time to time :)

DHL are the same as fedex requiring advance payment of duty before delivery.

Ah, thanks for the info. All my more expensive stuff came via USPS, that's probably why I've avoided charges even though I've certainly had orders over 22 that didn't pretend to be gifts.

Another reason not to buy these then.

It really, really, really sucks that it's going to be based in North America. Sure, might be better for the residents of the US, Canada and Mexico who have a lovely free trade agreement, but customs charges and delivery to the UK is just going to mount up and suck - hard.

Still going to get that Mega though.




youve got to be ****ting me right? Are you actually *****ing about a CCP item thats being based in NA? Get a taste of how it felts for us North Americans for the last 3 years..paying extraordinary amounts of cash to ship small items. Now you're *****ing because this is being based out of NA...lol If they are, indeed, based out of the North American market, I might actually buy them.

Between Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs deciding to wallop a huge big fat tax on US imports and having horrible, horrible experiences in buying stuff via FedEx due to admin charges worth more than the goods, yes I am *****ing about it being based in a country with which the UK has no free trade agreements . . .

This is what makes me feel that after initially laying down 70 plus another potential 50 C&E Duty, plus FedEx admin fees?...

Even though we're in the UK with the current exchange rate, these will translate to about 150-200 for one model over here. If not more.

IMO that'll probably lead to a bit of buyers remorse.

I mean for that money I can buy a model helicopter/plane that I can actually fly around...

Curious as to what the damage will actually be on these concerning Admin Charges and C&E Duty.

I want a Nyx with functional runway lights, and matchbox car sized fighters to go along with it.

I can see it now - along with an Ishukone station, a great way to convince the really hardcore roleplayers to smash hundreds of dollars-worth of models into each other... Laughing

Unless you convert it to isk, then it's a bargain at 2.24bn isk.

Fair enough, we knew these were not exactly going to be cheap and $125 is only about 60.

$500 for a faction version though? I feel that CCP is taking the **** a bit really to be quite honest. Four times the price just for a different paint job? Laughing

Actually that's $500 for all 4 faction versions, not a piece. Razz

The price isn't to bad actually, after currency conversion (and adding a generous dollop of taxes) it's still quite reasonable at 105 (minus shipping, but plus 19% local VAT) I've paid considerably more for Forgeworld models less than half those things' size. And those were unpainted too.

Probably best to ask these here than the whine thread about the model's cost.

Question from elsewhere that I havent seen addressed at all:

Any idea if this is a limited production run or a permanent fixture in the EVE Store?

Also will these be available at Fanfest assuming they are not a limited run?

Thanks.

Ah I see now, my bad.

I hear you with ForgeWorld. I have an 11" Abaddon the Despoiler resin model sitting back at home which cost something like 175. I had that professionally painted because I was crap at painting my warhammer stuff LaughingLaughing.

I just hope that it is cast in a good polyurethane resin and not that horrible polystone resin that the chines seem to love.

If it is polystone then i can guarantee it will arrive broken not matter how well it is packaged.

Wow! I've been waiting for these. They look gorgeous. I hope they feel as good as they look, that's important to me in a model. They are a bit pricey, though they seem right in line for the quality and type of models they are.

I'm sure happy to hear they're shipping out of NA for a change. Is that the case for all Eve Store items? Particularly issues of EON? As it stands now, it costs me $4 an issue just to ship one.

Oh, and it looks like the new store is already up and running! http://store.eve-online.com/

You've brought it to battle...
now bring it home.

The Caldari Raven has proven to be an excellent warship against most any class of opponent. Its look is typical Caldari, bearing the signature red band and near-featureless panels on its asymmetrical body. With a heavy arsenal of launchers and exceptional defensive ability, the Raven makes for a formidable ship to face in combat.

For fans and collectors alike

The EVE Online Battleship Models are constructed from a solid resin foundation and are mounted, ready for display, on a base emblazoned with the associated faction logo. The meticulous reproduction of EVE Online's ships is achieved through a combination of plastic detailing, cast metal components, and hand painted accents. The end result is a striking replica of the very ships soaring through space in New Eden.

Notice the relative level of detail (pre-emptive - no I am not referring to the colour difference).

I soooooooooo want one. But I just can't - CAN'T - justify spending 200 on 4 ornaments Crying or Very sad

Still, it wouldn't be a collectible if it weren't rare. And I'm sure enough people will go for it to keep it afloat.

OMG, time to **** my son's college fund Wink

"The four Tech I Battleships will sell for 124.99 USD each, and the four Faction Battleships are sold as a set for 499.96 USD."

As I read this, it's all of the four faction's battleships at the same price but maybe less charge on shipping (because there doesn't seem to be a bulk discount).

EDIT: So I don't think that there are 8 models.

Assuming a cost of 300 UKP, importing to the UK will attract VAT at 17.5%(around 52 quid), customs fees (toys are around 10% I think, might be higher or lower, so around 30 quid) so we're looking at, after 8 quid fees from Royal Mail, of around 90 quid in fees... although I'm not sure if they'll take the postage off before working them out or not - I included an approximate 30 quid in postage in the above.

I make that a rough cost of close on 400 quid in the UK for the 4.

Customs allow packages under 18 pounds through without fees (double that to 36 if it's marked "gift", although faking the customs label will land you both in trouble (Federal offence in US)).

I've bought from the US quite a bit and that rule causes all kinds of fun.

Buying from europe doesn't attract the same problems, if I recall (might have just been lucky though).

Hope that helps.

Got some news for you btw - we had to pay pretty huge postage too - it's put me off buying from the store in the past too. Anyone remember how much the Quafe cost to post? If I recall, it cost more than the drink cost.

Um...
So...
Since when is the Apocalypse Navy Issue, well... black?

Also, how come the exposed superstructure bits are just flat black on the models (including the regular Apoc model) whereas ingame they are in fact quite distinctly colored and possessing lights?
