20 Euro Base game incl River and Abbot
10 Euro each big expansion
25 Euro Minis complete
Totaling 55 Euro

Big box cost 65-85 Euro.

These prices are based on Big Box 3 and following releases.

I think you are using the numbers a little bit to prove your point. To be honest I don't like the composition of this new big box but you can't deny it's cheaper.

You set a price of 20€ for the base game. Pretty cheap considering you are in Sweden. Here in Spain is around 23-25 (cundco 23+ shipping)

You can find the big expansions at 10. Again a great deal here I cannot find any of them under 15 (on cundco the cheapest is at 13+shipping)

With the small ones you are right starting selling price was 25. But you can't buy them any other way than in the new big box or paying 35+ for the old art ones.

On the other hand it is easy to find big boxes on the 45-50€ range.

The way I see it is:
23+15+15+25=78
Against 50 for the big box

All numbers are actual numbers, ie today's prices. Stands to reason that a big box should be cheaper than the sum by themselves, but it's not. The minis are at 25 Euro with free shipping.

It must be a problem with big boxes on your country.

Because I do not doubt you can get all the individual items that cheap but the difference with the big box price is so much higher than Europe's average.

According to CoolStuffInc.com:

Carcassonne: Big Box 6 (2017)
Estimated USA Release Date: October 2017. Date subject to change.
Regular Price: $80.00
Pre-Order Price: $67.99

http://www.coolstuffinc.com/p/245660

Current Prices Breakdown as of 7/29/2017 in the USA
Game Part/PriceRetailCoolStuffInc.comMiniatureMarket.com
Carcassonne$34.99$29.79$27.99
Inns & Cathedrals$17.99$15.29$14.39
Traders & Builders$17.99$15.29$14.39
Base + I&C + T&B$70.97$60.37$56.77
Big Box 6 (2017)$80.00$67.99NA
Extra Cost (6 Minis)$9.03$7.62NA

Both CoolStuffInc.com & MiniatureMarket.com have a $6.00 Ground Shipping & Handling in the USA for 48 States (NOT Hawaii & Alaska) for orders under $100.

MiniatureMarket.com states that Big Box 5 was $74.99 Retail and that their Sale Price was $59.99 and often competes with CoolStuffInc.com, so I would expect similar range for Big Box 6 once available for Pre-Order.

This places the extra cost for the Minis to be under $10 which is worth it to me.

Also in the US, I can find an individual Mini for $25+ and the entire set of 6 for $110+ in the old art. Neither of these are good/reasonable buying options. As such, I have MOSTLY new art I would prefer the Minis to be new art anyways.

The only items I have in OLD art are German Cathedrals & The Labyrinth (I have Both the New & Old Art Tiles).

In Spain is easy to find minis from 1 to 4 at 5€ but 5 and 6 are nowhere and you have to end up buying them online at abusive prices.

So do you know anybody in Spain that would like to trade their minis 1 and 4 for my minis 5 and 6?

I don't but there has to be somebody. I myself had to buy a sealed big box 4 just to get those minis. At least it was cheap at only 35€
