Default Marvel deals, 2 for 15, 3D 2 for 18, 4K 2 for 30, Amazon UK and Zavvi, region-free

I believe the blurays are all region-free. Double-check on individual titles. I already own many of these and all the ones I have are region-free. The DVDs will be in PAL and might be in a different region - but who cares, DVDs are just coasters now anyway.

Both Amazon UK and Zavvi have matching Marvel deals:
2 DVDs for 12
2 blu-rays for 15
2 3D blu-rays for 18
2 4K for 30

Usually Amazon UK listed prices include VAT which is makes them cheaper at checkout, that doesn't appear to be the case here. Shipping to the US is basically the same, 3.99 at Zavvi and 4.07 at Amazon UK. Total cost for two 3D discs works out to $29 in US dollars.

My experience is that Zavvi's shipments usually make it to the US sooner.
Amazon's deal ends March 24th, presumably the same for Zavvi.

Usually, with these package deals, we in the US are not going to be forgiven the VAT tax because the total price of the bundle is still less than the sum of the individual discs with the VAT subtracted. It's been this way for the European Amazons as long as I have been ordering from them.

If the individual discs minus the VAT is less than the bundle (rare), we will be forgiven that part of the VAT. But then it would be the same as if we ordered them individually so that would not be a deal.

Interesting, I didn't realize that it worked that way. That makes the UK bundle deals a little less compelling, but this is still way cheaper than you'd pay for the US releases of these.

Yeah, I remember being disappointed the first time it happened to me.

And I don't think it makes sense since Europeans are being charged VAT on a certain amount and we are paying the same amount, just like we are in buying individual items. So if Amazon forgives us the VAT (which it does not have to pay the UK government) we should get the same break on bundles that we get for individual items, if they are consistent.

So the Amazon EUs pocket that extra VAT it doesn't have to pay to the government. It seems inconsistent but remember, it doesn't have to forgive us any VAT (and most, if not all, other European sellers simply pocket all our VAT).

Sad that AoS season 4 isn't included. I need that and Agent Carter s2. Although I do have Agent Carter s2 on Vudu and can still watch all of AoS on Netflix, so not that sad. I do wish they would include the Netflix originals, though.

Those are sometimes part of the Disney sale so watch for next month

I somewhat shocked this thread hasn't been banished to the OuterWorld subforums yet -- usually the mods find these within minutes (not that I've ever agreed with that decision)

I'd bet AoS gets pulled and ends up only on Hulu and Disney+ though.

I also just needed AoS s4 and 5 but they're not there, so oh well.

DisneyMarvel are 100% Region Free 2D and 3D and all the extras are US compatible. Dvd would at least be PAL and probably R2 locked, but I'm not sure any of these have DVDs at all.

Try changing the seller to Amazon, it looks like it's defaulting to a Marketplace seller. I bought it from them back in 2017 with no issue.

Lots of people loved Black Panther; I thought it was good but not great. Rangarok is 50% fantastic and 50% boring standard superhero fights. So, it's a toss-up in my book.

If I'd seen a clear post referencing this deal, I wouldn't have posted it.

I guess the question is, are those forums abandoned because people just post the deals here anyway? Chicken or the egg...

i got Black Panther and Avengers Infinity War.. came super fast. Wish they had Ant & Wasp though on this deal and maybe Venom. I don't know if I have seen a Venom 3d out there though in the UK. I may have just missed it.

Until 6-8 months ago anytime the "This product can't deliver to the US" for Bluray popped up it was always a 3rd party issue and switching to Amazon solved it. Over the past several months I've seen Amazon product being labelled like this more and more.

Ant-Man was fine to ship to the US last week -- I loaded my cart with one of each title and no probably getting to the checkout page. A few days ago a couple titles suddenly stopped being eligible. Most of them seem to be the non 12 titles which makes me thing something else is going on with inventory or if those suddently became unlabelled FBA items.

Midnight Run from Amazon.de has been like this for weeks or longer.

I think Zavvi is still shipping Ant-man and all in stock others to the US. If you have at least 4 to order it's cheaper through Zavvi anyway if you don't pay sales tax via Zavvi and pretty much equal if you do.

Just ordered Agent Carter S2 and Agents of Shield S1-3. Compared to Amazon, shipping these to the US was like $5-6 less at Zavvi (Amazon only deducted 9.99 no matter how many pairs of applicable items I was getting, which never made the total as low as 2 for 15. This was before VAT.)

At Zavvi, I did notice when I added 2 more movies to compare prices, Infinity War made the rest of the order free shipping while IW was a separate $4.99 but when I replaced IW with a different movie (Cap 2) the free shipping was removed and everything was $4.99 shipping. It doesn't make a difference in the end, it's just weird and idk if you'd be able to get free shipping to the US for everything.

Also for some weird reason, Thor 1 won't ship to the US from UK Amazon, sold by Amazon.
