Sales tax for mail order in the US is actually kind of a weird situation. Long story short, sales tax is usually not charged on a purchase being shipped from one US state to another. The buyer is supposed to report the purchase on their yearly tax return and pay taxes on it then, but nobody really does that. There's some political work-in-progress efforts to change this, but as of right now I would be paying the $59.99 with no sales tax or shipping charge.

I picked up two. I'm hoping that if I get a faction I'm not interested in I can trade it away for a different one with someone on the trade boards. I'm not real sure what I'm hoping for re: factions in these. I am OK with getting almost anything, though I've got almost all the Trolls except for some of the newer Northkin stuff, as well as a fairly sizeable Legion and Circle collection already so those would likey be a lot of duplication for me. The only factions I'm not terribly interested in at the moment are Skorne, Ret and Protectorate - mostly because I don't have any RPG plans for them at the moment. I'm kind of hoping for a Minions and/or Mercs to be honest. Either way, the value is pretty crazy with these. I wish I had more money

I'm rather tempted. But I've already got so much I'm trying to sell if it ends up being anything besides 1 or 2 factions it just means more to try and sell. I would literally be paying people to create more work for myself...
Me too. I'm torn between being very hopeful that we'll see a substantial number of the buffs we need, and concerned that we'll get the Legion treatment, and have a substantial number of our needy living beasts left out in the cold.
Does anyone have an idea as to what "accessories" PP is referring to? I thought of pins and a friend suggested maybe tokens. Any other thoughts?
Also I'm trying to figure out a what in general could be in a box. I'm thinking 1 caster, 1 huge and 2 boxes of units/beasts. It might vary a bit with things like BEs costing less than Gargossals but in general that's what I think is in the box. I'm also wondering what the "newest" thing in the box could be in terms of date of release. I'm pretty sure that Black Anchor won't be included so that means minion players will only be getting a BE and no gargantuan.
Anyway I hope people will post what came in their boxes so everyone else can get an idea of what they might get.
I never understand this particular complaint. Is Privateer Press supposed to subsidize shipping to locations outside of North America at a loss to themselves? Legitimately trying to understand what your complaint is? If it's just "it sucks that I live outside of the U.S. and want to purchase products made by an American company," which is a totally reasonable lamentation, then I don't think "get screwed once again" is the right way to describe that.
What most firms do once they hit size X in the European market (and as a private company it is impossible to know if PP is at size X or many multiples short of X) would be to set up a european subsidiary (probably in Ireland - Love me some low taxes!!). That avoid much of the tariff issue, the complexities of how VAT on US direct imports, and would likely reduce shipping costs (goods would be directly shipped from China and then distributed in the Euro market). A main issue is then the tax on repatriating the income which can be challenging - and especially challenging depending on the firm's cash and cash flow position. But it is absolutely true that given the growth of the game it is probably long past time that PP take a hard look at a Euro subsidary - even more so in light of the looming trade war ;-(
