Just saw this on eBay, for all you die-hard collectors out there. Decent price for a rare special edition of the Final Quest Special that was only distributed at New York Comic Con in 2013.
*blinks* Seller has issues with Germany?
Why do you say that @Embala? Does it say that somewhere?
It says: Does not ship to Germany
... not that I'm TOO eagerly interested right now - made me stop considering at all, tho.
You could always have it shipped to my place then I'd send it to you,
Maybe... maybe I'd just keep it.

I just did a search for "Elfquest NYCC" and got a bunch of results. If you want the book, I'm sure one of these sellers will ship to Germany.
XD Issues with Europe - or simply the distance. Kinda soothing.
I'll keep an eye on the alternatives. :)

The is the person selling it is in the US and probably doesn't want to ship overseas. They may ship to Canada or Mexico, but that's not as expensive.
And for me it says: Does not ship to The Netherlands
So Ebay recognize from which country we are and automatically blocks us.
@Heather is right. The seller has the item marked as ships only within the US. When it pulls your locale to try and estimate shipping, it blasts a "no go" to any non-US locations.
They probably have had issues with people in Europe buying items but then balking at the shipping prices, so they now simply just restrict their sales to the U.S. Luckily there are a lot of others selling the same item (see link a few comments up) and I'm sure SOMEONE will ship to Europe.

I live on eBay as much as I do on Amazon, so I've had that cost vs shipping issue constantly with some figures I'm collecting. I'm eternal grateful for those foreign shippers who are actually offering free shipping on their stuff. I don't know how they do it!

@Heather I assume because the items are small. Although a lot mark them as "Gift" which I understand is not how merch should be shipped. But i seem to get mixed signals on that.

Heather said: If the item being shipped is an actual purchase that someone got to you, there can be a "duty tax" on it. Marking gift is the way to avoid paying the duty tax.
