it's amazing that you got this entirely wrong.
first, it's a * not a #.
secondly, it doesn't say "u.s. shipping only," it says "u.s. orders only."
third, yeah, they shouldn't have used the asterisks to make the "pre-order" text stand out, but those asterisks are unrelated to the first asterisk, and subsequent explanation of that first asterisk.
they ship anywhere. for u.s. orders, shipping is free when spending over $75.
