Just so everyone knows what to expect when buying out of their Union ;)
I haven't got charged so far, because I don't usually buy from abroad... Have you got charged for an imported tama before?

You're welcome.

Generally, toys and hobby products usually carry no charge if purchased in small quantities. :)

Oh, I get it - probably because the people checking the packages think that you aren't getting any money for it, so they can't really object that you're getting money and they're not...

I know for the us it goes by how much you paid for the product and of its personal use or for selling. That and ie noticed if they send food with it gets held for a bit.

I've NEVER once had to pay an import or a tax when buying from other country's. I've gotten things as big as a laptop as well.
