Fancy a whole box of S6 figs?

It can be a bit awkward going to the till with a whole box of figs under your arm. For one thing there's no guarantee the shop will sell them to you and the barcode on the box doesn't scan so you often have wait about while the cashier works out what to do.

So, here's a solution to the problem: Amazon.fr is selling complete boxes of 60 for €110, which is about £90, so it's not only convenient, but also £30 cheaper than in the UK!

Order them here: Series 6 minifigs.

Whenever I try to order something from Amazon-France, it sets shipping to one-day-instant-delivery for an outrageous 20 Euros and I cannot set it to anything else. Anyone have an idea why and what I can do to change it? I would love to buy a carton of these and some other sets, too.

Bought one. I was going to buy a box in a local toy store soon, but now I dont have to and I've saved some money. Thanks Huw :)

I hope the other Amazon divisions pick up on this and offer them as well, although it looks like I could order and ship to the US for €99 (~$127 USD) total. Wonder what the odds they would accept my order are...

Can you buy a box if you live in the United States? I've been looking for one in town but haven't found them any where...

Speaking of amazon.it (my country):
Series 6 surfaced in late December. Price was 105,58, I obviously placed my order.
On January 6th the order was canceled beacuse "item was no longer available and out of production".

@DrDave: you linked a Marketplace seller. Description reads: item can be shipped to selected extra-EU countries (implying they don't sell to EU countries except Italy of course).

My basic French tells me that normal delivery time on the above is 4 to 7 weeks. Not sure how accurate this is.

What about import duty? I was stung once ordering goods "cheaper" from the US?

^ No import duty if ordering from an EU country for delivery in another EU country.

Price might go down further if they are pricematching Pixmania. I remember for Series 5 it went down to 97 euros. I find that 4 to 7 week window is a pretty generous one and more often than not, it will get there much sooner. I don't buy boxes though, so take what I wrote with a grain of salt

Took a chance and ordered it, so we'll see if Amazon.fr ships to New York or cancels the order. Total with shipping came out to €99.56.

I have considered buying whole boxes of minifigs, but I decided against it because after completing a set of minifigs, I'd then be left with 44 minifigs that I'd probably never be able to shift.
