I don't see how Brexit can have anything to do with it.

Will certainly be more expensive given the fall in the pound.

"I don't see how Brexit can have anything to do with it."
Massive uncertainty over future trading conditions will have quite a lot to do with anything that has to cross a border, regardless of origin or destination. Civilian business does not in general thrive on uncertainty. Could be said that other types might do, but I don't think our game really does.
"Very little indeed I think, and it's quite possible, even likely, that trading conditions with non-European countries could be improved without conditions imposed by the EU."
I don't think I can agree here.
Consider, who has a better negotiating position, the entire EU bloc, representing one of the largest trading areas / markets of the world, or the UK, who at the point in time we're talking about, won't be.
Either way, it will take years, and years, and probably more years, of individual negotiations with said individual countries. Until such time trade will be on the worst possible conditions/regulations, i.e. WTO if UK crashes out of EU. In short, we can expect pretty much about everything we buy to be more expensive for a long time.
Mods if I'm drifting too political here then please delete, I'm trying to stay relevant to the low stock level discussion.

Oh, dear. Politics.
Anyway, where do you think all the stuff made in the far east goes through to get here? Europe. Europe is the logistical trading hub that we import from. Brexit WILL effect the prices of every modelling item you buy in the form of customs tariffs if nothing else, and these costs will be passed onto the UK purchaser.
