I like all my RMC stuff and theres plenty on the wishlist still to get but it certainly ain't cheap and very hard to find at a lower price unless you are in Japan and even then it's only the exchange rate that makes it any cheaper. 

The tokyo store still applies the tax to foreigners IIRC :o

I don't consider the JP pricing to be overpriced. It's in line with many other JP repro companies. The pricing abroad is pure rip-off though

Definitely...and so are the SugarCane retail prices in the UK for example

Yeah it reminds me of growing up in 90s and buying Nintendo64 cartridges, they saw the UK as treasure island, and we had to pay £60 a game while across the pond in America it was $60 and with the exchange rate at the time it meant we paid almost twice as much as America. 

Same thing happens now with RMC.

Yeah the best part for you guys was having to pay 60 Pounds for Banjo Kazooie, Golden Eye, and DK64... which were all made by the very British Rareware company. 

Sure, the cartridge wasn't actually made there, but I still found that concept ridiculous.

"Here Nintendo, we made these great games for you and we're going to give them to you so you can sell them back to us at an inflated price."

I didn't necessarily mean overpriced but certainly still premium priced within Japan

Absolutey,  SC is very reasonable within JP (and outside compared to some brands )
