I've been trying to locate a means to obtain a Critters boxset that was only released in Hungary, it featured all four films inside a furry DVD case that resembles one of the creatures. I've been looking for online retailers with zero luck, and have not seen one in Ebay in ages state side. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I am pretty good at finding things overseas, but have never bought anything from Eastern Europe. Now the question is whether they will ship to the USA...

Nope. The site only lets you register with a Hungarian address. :(
That's a cool-looking set, though!

there is a hungarian poster (Andras) and maybe another one, check with him.

Rats. But if Andras can't help, here are a few more ideas:

1) I got that site from http://blu-ray.lap.hu/ . Find the Filmvásárlás section (Buy Movies) and work your way down the list. Another dealer could be more cooperative. It's probably safer to search for "Rémecskék" instead of "Critters".

2) I doubt Hungary is a big destination for movie buyers, certainly unlike the US, UK, France, Germany, Japan, etc. Their shipping policies may only reflect their typical customer base. If you contact customer service, and if someone there speaks good English (not uncommon), see if they'll make an exception. It can't hurt.

3) I once spent 3 days finding a way to ship several DVD's from Best Buy Canada to the US. BB Canada and BB US only ship domestically. In the end, I found a Canadian chain of "UPS Store"-like stores who agreed to receive the package and mail it on to me. You will hit the language barrier again, but English is as universal a language as we have today, so you should eventually find someone fluent.

If you can get this set from a Hungarian dealer, consider buying 1 or 2 extras to resell. :) You've proven yourself that there's a market for it. Good luck!
