BTTF TRILOGY 25th ANNIVERSARY BD TIN-UK ONLY?! Any ideas besides eBay?

So I finally got around to watching what is easily my favorite trilogy on BLU-RAY; the BACK TO THE FUTURE series. Anyway, I started watching all of the new extras, etc. And like any collector, I am always looking for something cool and rare, whatever. I guess I got swept up in the holidays but I seriously cannot believe how ripped we got on our 25th Anniversary Sets! The UK received a seriously kick ass collector's "tin" w/ loads of all sorts of loot. The prices on eBay are pretty outrageous so I wanted to know if any of you guys know of any reputable overseas retailer that won't gouge the price much. Lemme know, I would love to get my hands on this set. I do have extra PKE Meters from MATTEL sitting here and they didn't ship over there....hmm. Check out the specs (I think just like the US) and the pic below!

They were available until the end of the year, but then seemed to have dropped off. (2-3 stores that shipped worldwide still had it in stock, hmv, dvd.co.uk, etc.)

I'm surprised at how much they're being gouged for on ebay. Glad I had got mine during the first batch from Amazon.

Good luck finding one, I'll make sure to keep my eyes open =)

I'm dying here! I'm done browsing....for tonight I mean. You guys think they are still in stores in the UK? I have a buyer over there, maybe he could pick one up for me at cost. Hmm, gotta sleep on this. How did I miss such an epic collectible set w/ all that great stuff? I feel like I got MIB mind-wiped...

PS--The guys over at bttf.com really amped up their website, looks terrific...

I think I still woulda passed. When it came out, I was tempted, but told myself I'd wait for a price drop since everything at amazon.co.uk seems to go for cheap everything. I guess selling out never occurred to me...

I didn't think it would turn out to be really limited. Definitely would've been nice to get a lot more to sell.
