    Amazon Germany's price on Trick or Treat just went down 15 euros. Placed a pre-order for cover B. Really looking forward to this release!

    Sweet! I have the B cover pre-ordered from there also...ever since it first showed up.

    And since they also have the pre-order price guarantee, the price will be even better now. I checked my order...and it looks like it already updated the price to 21,04 EUR for it. Nice! :evil:

    Nice, thanks for the heads up. I also see that it no longer costs 10 or 15EUR to ship a movie to the US with Amazon Germany, so I pre-ordered cover A.

    It looks like the release date has been pushed back a couple of weeks to February 14th — or at least Amazon DE is now showing that on the item pages there.

    Cover B may also now be all reserved for pre-orders on Amazon DE, since it now shows that it can't be ordered anymore. It's limited to 500, while Cover A is limited to 1000.

    Crap, I wish I had been paying closer attention to this thread. It's back up to regular price (which is more expensive than Synapse's Demons steelbooks!).

    And according to blu-ray.com tracking, the price changed only 6 hours ago.

    :fucked:

    Yeah, with pre-orders you gotta lock 'em in regardless of which Amazon site it is. Prices can change wildly before the release date in my experience. It can be cheap as hell at one point, or right at the SRP the next.

    Cover B is now up for ordering on there again though... but also at the raised price.

    Kat, do you know how much shipping is to the US? Never ordered from German Amazon before.

    Also, is their cancellation as easy as Amazon US? Might plug in an order for both, see which drops first, and cancel the other.

    Standard shipping is cheap. €3,00 EUR for the set, which is about $5 US

    Yeah, you can cancel or modify orders just as easy on there...it's basically the same layout and system as Amazon US.

    I've placed quite a few orders with Amazon DE in the last 6 months or so, since shipping became so cheap. No problems.

    They have a page here for English speaking customers. And if you use Google Toolbar you can easily just translate stuff on the fly there also.

    Wow, that was interesting. Didn't even have to open an account, was able to just use my Amazon.com account.

    Also interesting, even though the website says 39,99 EUR, when I checked out it automatically went down to 33,61 EUR? Not complaining. :)

    Hope it gets back down to what it was. Also hoping for cover A, as that's easily my favorite of the two.

    For what it's worth, they mentioned on Facebook that Trick Or Treat is region free.

    Your Amazon Login, Password, Shipping Addresses, Credit Cards, etc.. are valid on all Amazon websites. The only Amazon site I've used where I had to create a totally new account, etc.. was Amazon Japan.

    The reduced price you see after placing the order is minus the VAT (Value Added Tax). Customers outside of Europe generally don't have to pay it, so it's just subtracted from the final price. My pre-order was just 20,79 EUR for example. :evil:

    Which cover did you pre-order?

    I pre-ordered both at the moment, just in case one dropped in price and the other didn't. But I'll be cancelling one or the other sometime before the release date.

    I'm not picky about which cover I get, but if they both come out to the same price, I'm going with cover A. Even though cover B is more limited and will probably be worth more, I just prefer cover A. Very simple and effective. Also, much more of a Halloween feel than cover B.

    Looks like cover B is back out of stock again, so maybe my pre-order nabbed the last copy?

    Probably so, since it's a limited supply they'll get of them.

    I really do like Dolls - anyone been able to confirm if its region free yet? Or what the chances are of a North American release?

    101 Films stated on Facebook that it would be "Region 2" and not region-free.

    Question, even if a UK or German disc is region free, wouldn't the TV be incompatible (NTSC TV with a PAL disc)? I imported Dolls blu ray from Amazon Japan although it was very expensive it was worth the price. The disc is high quality with a little booklet inside and a 40 minute interview with Stuart Gordon exclusively for the Japanese release done in Japan.
