Default WIZARD OF OZ $22.51 @ Amazon UK

If you're like many prudent shoppers who don't want to spend nearly $60 for the upcoming Wizard of Oz 70th Anniversary Collector's Edition, you can buy a movie only edition from Amazon UK for 13.73 or $22.51 US price.

Like most Warner titles, they are Region Free and should play in the U.S.

Good price. I'll probably end up sticking with the collectors ed. I pre-ordered through WB for $50.xx. One of the few times I've splurged on a over priced set.

Amazon UK is a wonderful source for importing movies. However their shipping can be quickly add to price, normally 3 to 4 extra for shipping.
But in this case compared to $60 it still a deal.

Isn't the movie-only edition also being released here in the US? If not, I'll definitely be ordering from the UK!

It feels more like $27.69 (if exchange rate at release stays the same as now) + currency conversion fee "conveniently" charged by your credit card (which is 2%-3%)

After you add it to card and proceed to checkout (and specify US shipping address) they will:

1. Remove VAT (sales tax is not paid for exported items), which will bring total to 13.73
2. Add shipping which will bring it to 16.81

and to top it they don't allow charge in US (probably for preorders as exchange ration may change) so, credit card will convert currency for you and will charge additional fee for this.
