Does anyone know of a NZ retailer or a way to import this, as cheaply as possible. Not had any luck so far.

Thanks.

The ONLY way I could find it was through Gamestop's website... But they charge us US$40 in shipping Cry

I think they've just gone out of stock. I don't think they're "officially" bringing it to NZ to be honest.
I'm a die-hard Borderlands fan, but US$189 for the game is just too much... I'm now just thinking of getting the game off of nzgameshop for NZ$57.

You do realise that it would be a physically huge box due to the size of the chest? That shipping charge seems pretty reasonable considering.

If it were "officially" available in NZ, it'd be at least $200 due to size + rarity.

Given that the Deluxe Vault Hunters Collectors Edition is on nzgameshop for $75 versus $130 on MightyApe, it's a pretty attractive alternative.

Didn't say it was expensive shipping - only that it is is a lot, and of course I realise what it is I would like to purchase?

I don't see a lot of difference between thinking that "it's a lot" and that it's "expensive".

Big things cost a lot to ship. This has always been true.

Guess the difference would be whether the price is considered fair? being expensive could be interpreted as something that is considered being over priced. And I didn't state if I thought shipping was over priced, just that it is a substantial sum.
