    Although I do appreciate it's frustrating for those who didn't get it early, it's encouraging for those who did to know that calling this item "limited" wasn't just to get it shift units.

    I was at Best Buy today and they had all the individual records there. They even had a sign for it in the vinyl section that said "Michael Jackson Diamond Celebration". I was really tempted to buy them but I will hold out for the box set.
    Put all your energy into your finger and throw it out like fire.

    OK. i have ordered the box at the US Michael Jackson Shop. The UK and the EU shops still dont have this item anymore.
    Are there People from Europe here who bought this at the EU Shop?
    Can u tell me if u have paid Customs duties? I'm sure u dont have.

    I have to pay 57 Euro for customs duties. Cause it was sent from the US.
    so summary, i have to pay 270 Euro. Guys I am angry about it. Thats 80-90 Euros more than normally. So expensive. But that was the only chance for me to get this Box. Just because i was too late to order it at the EU Store.
    Horrible are the Shipping costs, 63 Euro. And now 57 Euro for customs duties. That's 120 Euro for shipping. Can u believe that?. I'm so angry about the Michael Jackson shop. 63 Euro for just one item. Thats not normal.

    Customs in the UK is completely made up. Not sure about you but the charge is just whatever they decide they want it to be. I’ve just ignored the box as it’s now out of stock.

    Good thing you have it now, right?! Congrats! I didn't know it was still available in the US. If it sells out it's still a good investement though.

    I had to pester them for like a month for them to send any replacement vinyls and by the time they responded they had no off the wall left. The thriller they sent still had a bend in the insert but it was better than the first one so I guess it's fine. The quality control for this set was absolutely shocking.

    Absolutely right. I have ordered the EU Versions at Amazon. I need 12 replacements. Amazon always sends damaged items. But still i dont have the BAD Vinyl in good condition. Damaged Sleeves. Scratches Vinyl. Dirty in the vinyl itself (you can not clean that), damaged inlays,...
    So terrible quality with these picture vinyls.

    The charges are indicated here, if you feel you've been overcharged you can apply for a refund.

    This would appear to be an EU thing, and not unique to UK. At least for now.

    Any goods over 15 GBP sent from outside the EU you will need to pay. Sometimes you get lucky though and it slips through the net.

    I hope some more of these box sets will be available this year for MJ's birthday. I didn't get a chance to buy it last year.

    Hopefully if they do make them again the quality control will be better.
