You can buy many OOP resin sets from DF Europe 1 Year, 2 Months ago  
If you are thinking of buying OOP sets from Ebay, you should check out Dwarven Forge Europe instead. They have many oop sets in stock and many times it will cost you less to buy from them than ebay.

I've checked into the DF Europe sites prices and it seems to add about $50 per set to get it shipped here.

Catacombs for instance will run you about $200 shipped. I doubt you will save anything by buying these oop sets on ebay as sellers are usually asking for $200+ for the oop sets like Ancients and Catacombs.

You can get Catacombs, Ancients1, Ancients2, Red Pillar packs etc.

This is better than the prices I've seen on ebay for these.

Just click on the link in the upper-right corner of the site that says "Are you from Europe?". Then use the contact form and THOD send you an estimate of what it will cost to get shipped to you. It seems to be about an extra $40-$50 per set total to get it shipped here. He will subtract the VAT fees and then the prices for his sets are nearly the same as the US prices.

Since these are in stock, it might take 2-4 weeks to get it shipped overseas.

It just seems like a much better option than ebay, even including the overseas shipping especially since these are new sets.

Out of stock (OOS) means it is sold out until the next restock.

Out of print (OOP) means it is sold out, and it isn't coming back.

Thanks for the idea. Any idea what the customs will run?

I don't think I've ever paid customs on anything I've bought from overseas and I live in the US. I've bought many items from UK, Spain, Netherlands, Germany, China, Japan, Australia, etc.

Shipping is usually about 7 days to the US, delivered by FedEx.

Shipping cost and other bits to know

I currently calculate £30 + £6 per kg - this assumes a package > 2 kg.

The weight is actually just the weight of DF boxes - packing material like boxes, etc. is part of the £30.

I'm not trying to benefit from shipping - but it really caused too much back and forth - and too many failed orders - when I tried to get the exact quote - which meant to pre pack it, get a quote, get a changed order, get a second quote, etc.

Prices to the US are without VAT. That means £120 for an EU customer becomes £100 (approx. $160 depending on exchange rate).

I do have a spreadsheet calculating everything that I send out - so you can play with different scenarios and I send this out to everyone who contacts me.

Shipping cost is really a huge disappointment and I understand that many customers will just refuse at that step. That was the main reason to set up shop here in Europe as we suffered the same for years. This was never meant to work that way round and only is a stop-gap measure until the US has stock again.

And I forgot to add:

There are 2 true OOP in stock as well

Lizard Men Set miniatures and Trap Set I.

I inherited some old stock and these will sell as long as available. Unfortunately Trap Set I is with bow ties. Yes - THAT old. But they are all unopened and new.

I was trying to order 9 sets last night, but when I get to the step where you select a shipping method, no shipping methods are listed and it won't let me go to the next step.

Sorry - the automated site doesn't work for the US.

A) it doesn't realize to take off the tax - so you pay 20% too much
B) weights are more like volume to calculate the EU shopping cost. No US shipping cost added
C) allows me to correct if items are available in the US

I will try to contact you if you filled out your details once I'm back at a PC. Otherwise drop me a message with contact details b

Thanks! (I think I had also sent an inquiry over the summer via the EU site's contact us form and never got a response.)

oops - sometimes mail can get lost. I should always reply in <3 days or the chance is high something went wrong and no reply will come at all. It never is 100% - but I should do 90%+ quickly.
