RRP in euro ?

The RRP (Recent Retail Prices) for the sets are now in pounds en dollars. Should it be difficult or possible if the RRP in Euro's are added since I think there are also very much Brickset members from the European Continent ? Simply recalculating from pounds or dollars to euro's is not possible because that doesn't give the right retail price because of tax differences etc.

Maybe this question was asked before but I could not find it.

    I think it's not done because different Eurozone countries may actually have different RRPs?
    Or did I just make that up??

    ^^That way the price wouldn't change over night depending on who's elected =)

    That could defenitly be true, that possibility I did not think of.

    And I think the first R is for recommended not Recent, although there are known variations to this such as Toysrus :

    It's also worth pointing out that a huge number of the sets listed in the Brickset database were actually produced and discontinued before the Euro even existed.

    ^ And will probably still exist after the Euro has gone ...!

    True, but the I was aiming for the newer sets since the euro was introduced of course.

    I've been scraping prices for all countries that Lego.com sells to for a few months and you should see a more... link next to the RRP in the set listings which opens a popup window showing them all.

    As others have said there is a lot of variation in Euro prices so it's difficult to show them in any other way.

    ^ as I have said before, this is another reason why we don't have a truly common market in Europe! National fiscal policy is the main reason for different prices across the EU, but also different distribution channel costs probably impacts too.
