Up to now, Rock Band games on the 360 have been region locked, so it was a bit of a surprise to discover that L:RB is region free.
I too imported all my RB games through videogamesplus, because it's cheaper (it saves about 20 euros per new game compared to buying in store here) and because I don't have a credit card and couldn't buy anything from the European PSN Store. But there were US PSN Cards available on ebay so I used those to buy DLC.
And now there are European PSN Cards but since I want to import Lego Rock Band into my US RB2 I'll need to buy the region 1 L:RB and buy the export key from the US Store, but it's still cheaper than buying here so I'm not complaining, I get the game earlier too.
Wait...L:RB is region-free? I was going to wait the couple of weeks until the 25th to get it once it comes out here, but if i can save some cash and get the game a week or two earlier, then I may have to import.
All I want in life’s a little bit of love to take the pain away...
I ordered two copies as well, one from vgplus who I've used in the past and have had no issues with whatsoever, and one from eStarland who I've never bought from before. I'm on the PS3 so I needed to import the US version for export purposes seeing as my RB1/2 are US versions also. Added bonus that I'll get it earlier than the Australian release and probably cheaper too.
Oh and I ordered two copies because one's for myself and the other is for my mate, but I ordered from two different places just in case one of them shipped it out faster.
edit: for Bahamut44, there is no Canadian version really. The Canadian version is the US version, so to speak.

I've posted in the main RB forum as well, hoping for some info...
Is there anyone here that has a UK/AU 360, that has imported the US Lego RB and has successfully exported the songs to their UK/AU 360 for use with UK/AU RB2?
If so, did you have to log on to XBL using a US XBL account, or did the code work with your normal AU/UK XBL gamertag on the UK/AU marketplace?
