Biggest issue: TLG willingness to keep many more sets active with extended lifetimes.

Thanks for voting everyone. Perhaps I should have added the point about extended life of some items that sell well but that already started years ago. Same for alerts. BP members increase is the same as oversupply in my view.

They are not all negative points, exchange rate changes will benefit UK sellers and Euro buyers and relaxation of banning policy is good for most.

If the exchange rate of the GBP recovers it will be the other way around. 

Interesting times.

The real problem with Brexit and the pound is the uncertainty. No-one knows how things will look in a couple of years from now. Will there be tariffs to and from sales with the UK? How will this effect EU prices? It's hard to formulate any kind of plan with so many different potential scenarios.

Yeah... but Tabby is already cornering the market in the UK.

Unless he is using USD to pay we are buying cheaper than him. Plus he has made some interesting choices of steed. If TBBT turns out to be popular for instance.

Buy buy buy seems a good plan now! Wall-E´s for half pricei in  euros are a no brainer even for a washed up pessimist like me.

No half price Wall-Es/Ectos/TBBT near me unfortunately. Where have you been buying them?
