I just received my S&W kickstarter package.

Kudo's to everyone at Frog God for the sturdy packaging job ! The outside box was pretty dented as usual but due to the inner cartons around the books, no damage to the books. Thanks a lot Frog God ! Those inner cartons are a great idea !

If only I could get customs to stop sending me invoices for pretty much half the value of the package.  :evil:

I'm in the same boat.  £50 VAT paid. Why the f*ck couldn't FGG have just written, "books" on the customs form.  That is, after all, what is in the bloody box.  :x

I think the fact that Frog God GAMES is on the box is probably already enough to make it 'non-books'.

I have no clue how these customs people judge things.

They tend to look at the customs declaration.  :roll:

that's what I would think yes.

however sometimes I have to pay only 10 euro, other times I have to pay 50+ euro for goods of pretty similar value.

so in my opinion it's not so objective as just being the declaration itself
