    Hi guys, i'm looking for a shop in Europe (preferably from UK) that sells the EZ Flash IV, and ships to Eastern Europe.No China or HK shops please, i'd rather pay a little more than to have to wait 4+ weeks for my card to arrive.
    Thanks in advance.

    You can go through the list to find a EU vendor, it is not updated as much so you might have to sift through the other post to find anything specific.

    The UK recently did a nintendo paid raid for stuff a few months ago, so you probably will not find any UK vendor selling anything.

    Eastern Europe might be a bit troublesome, I spoke to a few Polish people a couple of weeks back but they mainly scored them from HK or their online tat merchants.

    If Germany is close enough then http://www.flashlinker-shop.com/ez-flash-i...ot-2-p-443.html These guys have been around for years (rbenda.de is their former name) and have a good reputation.

    http://shop.01media.pl/info.asp?ProductID=33276 (not sure how their Polish wing works- the site was originally based in Sweden as far as was aware) apparently still have a couple of EZ4 lite deluxe carts (among all EZ cards they are only behind the EZ3 and 1 gig EZ2s for most desirable flash carts). These guys used to be a GBAtemp partner and I believe we parted on good terms, I have used them a few times as well.
    Do note they also appear to have EZ4 lite and EZ4 lite compact. I am sure you have probably seen it in your research but there are 4 models of EZ4- aside from the original EZ4 the others are DS lite sized (still work if you can attach a ribbon/use another case/similar) but the EZ4 lite compact does not do GBA very well (it was aimed at the low budget DS market a little while before the first DS slot stuff took off).

    As how_do_i_do_that mentioned what remains of the UK scene (I certainly know of nothing with EZ4s available) has taking a pounding of late and it was never that strong after ElectricBirdLand got taken out by Sony for PSP imports and after that the crackdown a couple of years back by Nintendo and co.

    edit: forgot about http://discoazul.co.uk/ez-flash-iv-minisd.html who despite the URL appear to be based in Spain, I have never really heard anything about the site though.

    DiscoAzul list it as out of stock. You might as well try for a HK site if nothing turns up.

    Thanks for the help guys, but it looks like i'm gonna have to order from HK after all, because i'm not willing to pay double the price, i mean 40 euros/pounds for a GBA flashcard WTF!?
    So i'm going to order one from HK after the holidays, from whichever shop has it cheapest.
    Thanks again.

    what shop did you buy from in the end? also the gba flashcart prices are ridiculous just as bad as when the ez flash 3 was and still is a rarity, they went for £100+
