OK, fair enough. Thank you for the information. In fairness to me however, firstly I was effectively reposting in a more user-friendly format (i.e. with direct links to the relevant pages) information posted on Yakface, a reputable website, here:

The payments to Dark Side Toys are made through PayPal, so there should be some protection there, surely? I've not shopped with them before and I'm certainly not affiliated with them in any way. As should be very clear from my earlier posts in this thread, I was (and still am) keen for the Khetanna to be made available to collectors outside of the USA (and Canada, since Hasbro have at least extended their orders to that country). However, I greatly dislike the Hasbro asking price of $500, let alone DST's £600, but if you want a Khetanna and live in Europe, your choices are rather limited!
Personally, much as I definitely would like to own a Khetanna, I am not thrilled about paying £600, so I am currently on the fence about buying one. If I do, it will certainly be via the 2-part payment method, but I won't make my final decision until 3 or 4 days before the Hasbro time limit is up. If it looks like it will hit the 5000 pre-orders, then I may well sign up. If it doesn't, I probably won't bother.
You could always have a pop at this one
