On Sale: 20% Off All Toys At Target

Target 20 Percent Off December 2014

Well we’re confused – an email has just come through from Target proudly proclaiming 20% off all toys. That seems a bit odd considering they have just started a sale with 20% off City and Star Wars.

We believe this updated offer starts today (Saturday 13th December) and runs until Wednesday 17th December.

On Sale: 20% Off City And Star Wars At Target

Target Logo 2014

While looking at the Target website after learning they had the Minecraft sets listed, we spotted the latest catalogue. Target are offering 20% off the regular price of City and Star Wars sets.

This may seem a little disappointing considering they just finished a 20% off all toys sale, but this is still better than some of the very narrow sales that are also on.

This offer actually started yesterday (11th December 2014) and runs until Wednesday 17th December.

Sorry for missing this one yesterday.

Where To Buy The LEGO Minecraft Sets In Australia

LEGO Minecraft Logo

Minecraft is one of the most popular games currently available, so it doesn’t come as a surprise that the new range of Minifigure scale Minecraft sets are proving to be popular. We have had quite a few people getting in touch to find out where the sets can be found.

The LEGO catalogue had these sets listed as a December release, but as Christmas approaches there seems to be no sign of them in the large chain stores. It seems unlikely that stores would be holding these for after Christmas.

Luckily there are still options available for those keen to grab the sets before Christmas.

Outer Rim Trading Co

This Brisbane based online retailer may be the best option for those looking to get the sets online. Unlike the other options on this list ORTCo. are offering the various sets for slightly below RRP. With affordable shipping options you may still come out ahead compared to the other retailers.

Outer Rim are also running a Christmas Competition where you can win back the cost of your order.

You can view their range here

Shopforme

It’s great to be able to promote multiple independent LEGO retailers. Shopforme are based in Melbourne, and also have a physical store to go with their online presence. For non-locals they also offer free shipping when you spend over $150. All of the sets are listed at the regular RRP.

You can check out their range here

Mr Toys

We have personally seen some of the Minecraft sets on the shelf of the Jindalee store in Brisbane, so your local store may also have stock. The products are also listed on the Mr Toys website, and priced at RRP.

Toys R Us

We aren’t aware of any in-store sightings, but the sets are listed on the Toys R Us website. You can’t actually buy the sets online but we hope the listing is a sign that stores are expecting stock. It might be worth calling your local store and asking about availability.

Target

As mentioned by Tan Tile in the comments below, the sets are also listed on the Target website. Prices are slightly below RRP (see table below). They also have Click & Collect available, but if you are using this option you may need to get in quick as the website says this can take up to 10 days.

Below is a table with prices for the retailers listed above.
