Power Functions elements, price hike at LEGO S@H (Europe)

After a few weeks online, the prices for PF elements suddenly arose significantly, at LEGO S@H across all Europe.
Those prices were in fact surprisingly reasonable when these products became available as individual parts, but now that's all gone...

Unfortunately, I didn't took note of the original prices to compare now (who would imagine this?), but there is always someone who does...

By reading also a post about this issue at Brickset, I found someone who did it and posted them in a comment:

  • 8881 - Battery Box from 4,99€ to 7,49€ (50% inc.)
  • 8882 - XL Motor from 6,99€ to 11,49€ (64% inc.)
  • 8883 - M Motor from 5,99€ to 8,49€ (42% inc.)
  • 8884 - IR Receiver from 10,99€ to 16,49€ (50% inc.)
  • 8885 - IR Remote from 6,99€ to 10,49€ (67% inc.)
  • 8886 - Extension Wire from 2,99€ to 3,49€ (17% inc.)*
However it seems there is still a trick to order them at original prices till the release of a new S@H catalog next end of March, but valid only for those countries where such catalog exists. See the details here at Brickset.

* For this one, I remember the price was 2,95€ for my country, because I've ordered some ;)

Hello TechnicBRICKs, nice blog... I checked my SAH order now and the extension wire is 2,99 Euro. Maybe it was 2,95 before I ordered and prices were raised twice. I got myself one of each PF item and 3 wires. If I want to purchase them now, I'll have to pay 20 Euros more!!

Most likely the prices were not exactly the same in every European country.
When there are no bigger differences, is at least not uncommon to find countries where the price ends with 95 and others with 99 Euro cents.

Well, forgot to say 'Thanks!' for the compliment. ;)
