On Sale: Second Set Half Price At Myer

Myer December 2014 B1G1 Half Price

While doing our regular check of retailers we spotted this 5 day offer on the Myer website.

From today (3rd December 2014) until Sunday 7th December you will be able to receive 50% off your second item.

This works out to a decent 25% off you are buying two identically priced items. As usual with this type of sale the discount will be applied to the lower priced item.

The website does not indicate if this is in-store only. We added two items to our cart on the Myer website and the discount was not applied, but it may just not be activated yet.

Brick Friday Offer Now Available Online

image

The LEGO “Brick Friday” offer for Australian shoppers is now available. Unfortunately the offer for us is lacking compared to some other regions around the world.

While others get discounts and bonuses the Australian Brick Friday offer is just 40107 Winter Skating Scene when spending over $100.

Sorry for the delay in posting this, we lost power in the storm that hit Brisbane on Thursday.

Official Pictures Of 21301 Birds

We already knew that the next LEGO Ideas set to be released was the Birds set, and now thanks to the LEGO Ideas Blog we have some official images of the final set (Click on any of the images to view a larger version).

From the images it looks like LEGO has managed to stay quite faithful to the original project. The finished product will make a great display piece; we suspect there will be plenty of LEGO fans with this set on a bookshelf in their home.

The set is currently listed on the US online store, but not the Australian one. This means we don’t have an official Australian RRP available as yet. Based on the current exchange rate and various mark-ups we are guessing an Australian RRP of $69.99. As we know Australian prices can be unpredictable, so this could end up being as high as $79.99.

21301 Birds is schedule for release in January.

The post also included pictures of the box for this set, which is also beautifully designed. We love how each LEGO Ideas set has a unique box.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Myer, Including Modulars [Updated]

Myer Logo Small

Myer has a new sale kicking off, and based on the dates it could be the last one we see before Christmas.

This sale kicks off tomorrow (27th November 2014) and runs right up until Christmas Eve (24th December).

UPDATE: As mentioned by Wade in the comments, and in our follow-up article, there is an extra 10% off available for Myer One members

The savings on offer are quite modest, so we have our fingers crossed that there will be other sales during this period.

The interesting part of this sale is that there are 4 different modular buildings on offer, including this year’s 10243 Parisian Restaurant. If stores actually have decent stock of all 4 it will be quite a rare sight.

There is no Australian price, but as soon as we know we will share that information. This fantastic looking set will be available in January.

Let us know what you think of this set now that we’ve go more pictures. Those look like silver Unikitty tails used on the roof.
