I have been searching High and Low for this online and the only places that seem to be selling it are US sites. Some will ship to the UK but as with most games due to the weight the postage can be quite hefty and don't get me started about when they hit you with import duty at customs! I was just wondering does anyone know is there a UK release date for this as none of the sites I usually shop from have this in stock or even in upcoming releases? I would be very grateful for any info.

You probably need to track the "EU petition" thread.

Basically not currently being distributed outside N.America, although Upper Deck are apparently working to try and make this happen. No timelines given.

Only present option at the moment is to US source it.

You would have to ask your local (or online) shops to import the game. We here in North America have to do it all the time.

Its all about license.

Unless they can import sufficient quantities to get some sort of savings, they'll end up costing more than importing yourself... postage and import tax will still have to be paid by someone.

That seems odd. My local shops are frequently able to import just a handful of european-only games and the price is most certainly less than (or at least the same) as if I imported myself.

I got it from here. Works out about £50 with import tax.

I suppose if I want it any time soon I'm just going to have to bite the bullet and pay the import duty. Otherwise who knows how long I'll be waiting? I did find a seller on ebay that has a pretty reasonable postage cost on it. I think it's the guy Rodney Smith from Watch It Played recommended. Thanks for the info guys.

Hi, where did you see Rodney recommend a seller? I might look into the same route in order to get this awesome game...

Thanks in advance...

Just figure that the earlier you get the game, the more value you get out of it before you die. Don't hesitate!

It's discount games store on ebay. They're currently one of the Watch It Played Sponsors. They're selling it for around £34 with £18 postage to the UK. Here's the link http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Marvel-Legendary-Deck-Building-Gam...

In all honesty Living in Northern Ireland most of the game stores I buy from are based in England and even though I'm in the UK I still end up paying £16 postage because they all use courriers and we're deemed a remote region. So for me the only big difference is going to be the import duty.

Hope you get a copy I'm itching to give it a blast.

So I went for it and got it on ebay. Cost me about £47 including postage which was rather quite good as I suspect that if or when it does get a release over here it will probably be in the £45-£50 range. Now I just have to wait and see how much the import duty is going to be. Hopefully it wont be too bad. Fingers crossed.
