On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us

Toys R US Logo 200px

We are still waiting for the catalogues from the other retailers, but if this Toys R Us sale is any indication – it’s going to be a slow week for sales. It’s possible that we might see some better sales to coincide with with Easter holidays.

This particular sale though – it’s very narrow, and probably won’t excite a lot of LEGO fans. This catalogue runs from tomorrow (March 18th 2015) until Tuesday April 7th.

Here are all of the included sets

Second Series Of Simpsons Minifigures Confirmed

Slightly hidden amongst the Kwik-E-Mart news was some extra LEGO Simpsons news that some people may find just as exciting… Series 2 of The Simpsons Collectible Minifigures.

The Simpsons Minifigures Series 2 Cropped

Some much loved characters are finally going to appear in LEGO form. Some people may not feel it was necessary to have another version of the Simpsons family, but it’s hard to not love LEGO Hans Moleman and LEGO Groundskeeper Willy.

Let us know in the comments who’s your favourite in this series.

Official Details Of 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart

Just as we were beginning to lament the lack of LEGO news, we have an exciting new set announcement.

There have been rumours of a LEGO Kwik-E-Mart for a while, but now it’s official… Introducing LEGO 71016 The Kwik-E-Mart

71016 Kwik-E-Mart 01

Some people criticised The Simpsons House set for looking a little bland on the outside, but we think the Kwik-E-Mart looks fantastic from top to bottom.

The set features 2179 pieces, and 6 minifigures; Apu, Bart, Homer, Marge, Chief Wiggum and Snake.

We suggest looking through the gallery below because this set is packed with details that will make any Simpsons fan happy; from printed Springfield Shopper newspapers to a fantastically designed Squishee machine.

The set will be released in May 2015. No official Australian price – as soon as we know, we will post it.

On Sale: Selected Star Wars Sets Reduced At Big W

From tomorrow (Thursday 12th March 2015) until Wednesday 18th March, Big W are reducing the price of some of the new 2015 Star Wars sets.

We have included a list below, with the discounts on each of the sets. As we mentioned, it’s not much.

Bricking Around Reviews The First Ever BrickPak

brickpak_200x200

Is there anything better than receiving a package in the mail? Only a package that you know contains LEGO. That’s the core concept behind BrickPak – the new Australian LEGO Loot Crate product.

We received the first ever BrickPak on Monday morning and couldn’t wait to open it up and see what’s inside. As I had planned to save opening it for the video below, it was certainly a struggle to have it sitting beside me all day at work, teasing me with it’s LEGO contents.

 

So enough of the anticipation, let’s crack it open and check out the contents.

Warning: If you have ordered the BrickPak and have not yet received it, anything after this is going to kind of ruin the surprise. We suggest you turn away now.

On Sale: 20% Off City & Friends Sets At Target

Target 200x200

It seems that Target are becoming a little less giving with their sales – the selected theme only sales seem to be more popular than the broad 20% off sales we were used to. Having said that, City and Friends are undoubtedly two of the most popular themes, so it could be worse.

From tomorrow (Thursday 5th March 2015) until Wednesday 18th March 2015 Target are offering 20% off all LEGO City & Friends sets.

Thanks to Tony & Danny for letting us know about this sale

  • Marvel Super Heroes
