The reason I bring this up is because of the hidden cost that may face international backers. If AnimEigo declare a person's Kickstarter pledge amount as the "value" of the package's contents, we could be in for some hefty fees indeed. Even the $60 for the basic option would result in an additional $25 charge.
But, it would not be false to say that the real "value" of the Blu-ray is in fact, nothing. The money that I have given to AnimEigo was in support of the Kickstarter, not a transaction for goods. It's not like this Blu-ray has an MSRP! The fact I'm receiving a copy of the Blu-ray is more of a gift from AnimEigo for my pledge.
So, can AnimEigo confirm that when they ship the Blu-ray out to international backers, they will declare its value as $0 (or if necessary, an arbitrarily low sum, such as $5)? This would be much appreciated by all facing such charges, and as far as I am aware is not contrary to any customs/shipping laws in the U.S.
