This crane is priced much lower on Amazon UK.

The LEGO technic 42009 flagship crane is a lot cheaper at Amazon UK, discounted by GBP30.


It is 119 pounds today. Shipped to the USA they take off the VAT bringing it down to GBP 100. Shipping to the USA is only GBP 5. Total GBP 105 or USD 177. Pay in pounds and use a credit card that does not charge FX fees such as cap one venture and many others. If you let Amazon charge in USD it costs $ 7 more.

On Amazon this crane is stubbornly above $204, with taxes in NY for instance $220. I will have to see if I will be assessed any customs duties. We will see.

I've bought LEGO from Amazon UK and never had to pay any customs duties
