On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

Father’s Day always throws up a few discounts – sets that the retailers think are blokey enough to feature in their catalogue. Our first example is these few sets that Big W are offering at a discount.

Overall it’s a pretty limited selection but I know a lot of people are keen on both the UCS Y-Wing and the App Controlled Batmobile.

The sale kicks off tomorrow (August 23rd) and runs until September 5th.

    Hmmmm… I bought the UCS Y-Wing last Thursday for $299 as I was not expecting a pricedrop any time soon… I haven’t opened it yet and still have the receipt. Any idea if I’d have any options? It has never happened to me before. Thanks for all the great info!

      If you haven’t opened it yet and still have the receipt you can certainly try taking it back and seeing what they can do. It’s not like you got it months ago. Just be friendly and explain the situation and see what they say. A few credit cards also have a price guarantee that might cover you in this situation.

      I did the same thing last year with the UCS Snowspeeder. They gave me a refund and then they had to put the stock back on the shelf, which consisted of them putting it on the other side of the counter for me to then re-buy it at the cheaper price.

  2. As always the heads is much appreciated Michael! Y-Wing here I come! And I reckon that Batmobile will be a cool Christmas pressie for the young fella.

    Went to my closest big w store in Melbourne SE and no luck on the y wing. It was only a few hours after opening. Whoever does the stock inventory is hopeless. I gave up on trying to get the ucs snow spreader at any sort off discount from them a few weeks back and just purchased it from the lego website. It looks like I’ll just do the same with the y wing.
    When other retailers like Myer and target have ucs sets on sale there are always plenty to go around.

      Mark, You probably should have gotten there at store opening if you were serious about getting one, big w are always poorly stocked on hard to find items, I rang Eastland the night before and was told they only got 3 sets in.

      I was at lillydale at 2pm to pick up the Ywing I ordered online, and found 3 more sets sitting on the shelf was tempted to buy another as I got mine for $225 with my Woolworths discount????
