Dear Argosy, Thank you for arranging a cheaper price on delivery to Hong Kong. I can say on my honnour, that if Spielberg, Jackson or Lucas, signed a contract with me for the most incredible Spiritual Byzantine blockbuster Saga of all times in Motion pictures, I will come to your shop in person when we will release the 1st movie of the 1st trilogy among the 22 and I will give you back this money :-) Truly, in God! May the Mother of God and all Saints of Mount Athos bless you for ever and ever. - J-M S.
