hmm... looks like only UK residents are allowed to order. But I'm on it... will get back with more info!

From the Country Options in the Delviery Address on the Store Website, it looks like it is only available to the UK. This would seem to be confirmed by a post from "Harry" (a Harpercollins Employee by the sounds of it) on the forums.

Yes but the same harry also told me some copies would be sent out outside the UK. Don't know how exactly that will work, but I'm looking into it.

I have just bought 2 copies on the web site (£350 each) not £300 as earlier stated as I live in the UK. Unfortunately as stated earlier by Harper Collins you can only buy these if you are in the UK mainland or Channel Islands.

I have bought two copies, and put one of them up on ebay. I don't know whether it will sell at the moment - if not, I'll put it in a cupboard for a while, then re-list.

I'm not trying to make a great deal money on this - indeed, my opening price will barely cover ebay and paypal costs.

If anyone here - particularly anyone from outside the British Isles - would like to bid, you would be more than welcome

I have just ordered a copy for myself together with one of the deluxe collection sets. This month is turning out to be an expensive one! I bought myself another 'treat' last week thinking that HarperCollins wouldn't release these until December. The credit card is making a strange squeeling noise...

For those who have ordered already, does it let you enter separate billing information on a second payment page after entering the customer information on the first page? I want to know if I can pay for two sets (from the USA) but have them shipped to people in the UK.

It drags the information through from the previous page and isn't editable.

Well, what a relief! luckily i still had my Irish credit card, so was able to purchase 2 copies for delivery to my family in Southern Ireland.
But the whole thing is a mess, I cant understand why they would not be able to deliver outside of the British Isles, its unfair to genuine collectors outside of this region.

Yes. its very tough on collectors outside of the UK. With both Christmas and my birthday coming up next month, I was disappointed that I couldn't add this to my collection.

Oh well, there's still plenty to collect.
