There's a post for that.

(I suppose I should check mine considering it's been in the shipping box since I got it last Xmas.)

Yes there is it's here:
http://bbs.foofighters.com/showthread.php?t=165683

Wasn't clearly stated (April?) but I think non US customers just got sent replacements and US customers were asked to return the box only as per what Let It Die posted.

Either way the ones left will be left overs from a mix of those refurnished/repaired plus those held in reserve and considered to now be able to be released after a long enough wait for anyone else to report a problem.

In other words as stated on the site:
We've uncovered a limited amount of leftover boxes from our preorder last year. These are strictly limited to 1 per person/household and will be gone quickly.

If you've left yours in the box unchecked and there is an issue with it you are likely to have days left to say hey help.

Other thoughts - all the final boxes could be signed... or none... who knows

quick question to anyone in the UK, what was the cost of import tax or whatever, cause the price is $149.99 plus the cheapest shipping is around $80. am looking at it at the moment but wondering how much extra would have to pay.

No one that bought one in the uk was charged import tax! It is supposed to be 20% of total cost of item & postage & parcelforce's handling fee if you still want to risk it!

From dispatch notice, about a week or so, but don't quote me on that.It depends how busy the store is etc. You can always re arrange delivery after the first delivery attempt to a different address or what they did to me was deliver it to the nearest post office for me to go and collect after first delivery attempt.Don't know if they would do that with you though?

Nope, the part that "flips" up - the latch itself - just fell off.

The store is incredibly good on the value declaration on pretty much everything they mark it as $18

So basically what they are saying is we (the store) are good for your purchase and that's the value to us. It then becomes a much more difficult exercise for customs anywhere to declare that's wrong. So arguably what you lose on high shipping that is fully tracked etc you gain back on customs duties and VAT etc. It is a good thing to know because you can add more to an order and it should still sail straight past the tax man.

If it's still screwed into the case but broken separately to where it screws in - they should be able to just send you another part so you can screw the new one back on with a working latch.

I have to say it is a shame they messed up such a simple thing - sourcing really good solid hardware for something so substantial would have been pretty easy.
