This is a long-help source of grief for Star Wars collectors - outside the U.S. , of course. For example. I know at least the German position of it, and some other voices, Dutch, for example, and Australian …

The prices are *so much* different, people for example just can't believe the difference.

The usual explanation goes that this is due two a totally different economy in the U.S. , whereas the EU for example has lots of taxes and government rules.

I could try to explain much more on it - as far as I know - but I think this would become a lenghty text.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
