From a UK perspective the price seems very fair indeed and having just checked at xe.com, the UK, Canadian and European prices almost exactly match the US price, within a few dollars. Only Denmark is getting a bad exchange rate, equivalent to about $223.
So, what do you think of it? Assembly Square is a hard act to follow but this one looks at least equivalent in terms of interesting details and building techniques.
