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.

That would be great for us. Buy cheap and sell high.

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

Mobile can't vote or see the choices, so beyond my Scrapple suggestion, I'm going to say discounts to exclusives.

I remember how excited we all were when the UCS TIE got discounted a couple months ago.

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.

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?

OVERSUPPLY IN THE PRIMARY MARKET

THIS. There are way too many sets out right now. Too many modulars, too many UCS exclusives, too many Creator vehicles. Too much Star Wars.
