On Sale: 20% Off Selected eBay Sellers

eBay 200

eBay is having a new sale with 20% off the list price of items at selected stores. Unfortunately the list is not particularly crammed full of LEGO offers.

From what I can see there are two sellers with LEGO products.

The first is regular a regular for eBay sales – Hobby Warehouse. You can view their LEGO range here.

The second seller is Nicole’s Toys and Gifts. You can view their LEGO range here.

Be sure to check the list prices of sets at these sellers as they can be above RRP on stuff.

To get your 20% off discount you will need the code PAMPER20 at checkout. The offer ends 11:59 PM AEST on June 13th. The code can be used for up to 3 transactions and up to a maximum discount of $1000 per transaction.

Your First Look At The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

The LEGO Movie Facebook page has just shared this first look at the highly anticipated LEGO Movie sequel.

The poster for the film has also been revealed.

What do you think so far? I’m liking the post-apocalyptic setting. That could lead to some interesting sets.

Release Schedule For The Second Half of 2018

2HY 2018 Catalogue Cover

The latest LEGO Catalogue is out, which means we now have an official source on the release schedule for the the second half of 2018′s sets.

Considering that they are already in most shops it will come as no surprise that Creator is scheduled for June. This lineup includes the Pirate Roller Coaster as well as the other 3-in-1 sets.

LEGO Train fans will be hanging out for July when the new City range is released. The lineup includes the new Arctic sets as well as new trains, City Hospital and the new people pack.

July is also the month for new Friends sets. The 2HY 2018 Friends range focuses primarily on the racing sub-theme but there are also some interesting sets like 41346 Friendship Box or 41347 Heartlake City Resort.

Lastly for July is new Ninjago sets. Some great looking sets including 70652 Stormbringer that can be integrated with Boost.

You’ll have to wait for August for new Star Wars including the great looking 75216 Snoke’s Throne Room and an all new Sandcrawler.

August is also the scheduled month for new Technic sets such as the massive 42082 Rough Terrain Crane.

Unikitty! is another August release with both the sets and blind bags on the way.

Lastly for August is 4 new Juniors sets - 2 Disney Princess sets, a Friends one and 10764 City Central Airport.

The last sets on the schedule are the new Minecraft sets due in September.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here or see a full list of the included sets below.

Introducing The Next Technic Supercar – The Bugatti Chiron

It hasn’t exactly been the best kept secret but now we have official details of the latest supercar to get the LEGO Technic treatment.

Introducing 42083 Bugatti Chiron

42083_29_Lid_DieCut

The set uses 3,600 pieces to recreate this record breaking car in 1:8 scale.

Not only does the set look great but it is absolutely packed with features that you only get with a Technic model of this size: the W16 engine has been recreated with moving pistons; there is an 8-speed gearbox, with movable paddle gearshift; working steering wheel, bearing the Bugatti emblem; and a top speed key to switch the active rear wing from handling to top speed position.

Like the Porsche before it this set is presented in a stylish box with collector’s booklet. Each model also features a unique serial number.

The set will be released some time tonight online and has an Australian RRP of $599.99. The set can be purchased right now from LEGO Online.

Check out the full image gallery, press release and videos below.

70657 Ninjago City Docks Now Available

Now that June has started the new sets are starting to become available online.

I’ll do up a full list of everything new when I get a chance but I know there were a few people interested in Ninjago City Docks in particular.

Ninjago City Docks

The set will set you back $349.99. You can get yours here.

At this stage I’m not sure when this is coming to retail or who will be stocking it. I have heard that it will at the very least be coming to LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne and Dreamworld.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Target

Target 200x200

I got some interesting information from Target this morning – they are reducing the prices on a range of sets for the next 4 weeks. Most of these are sets that have been reduced before but the deep discounts make these worth checking out.

These prices are valid online and in-store but unfortunately not all of the sets are available online.

The prices should be valid until June 28th or while stock lasts.

You can see the full list with prices below but here’s what is available online:

David Jones Logo

It’s stocktake time at David Jones and they are offering 20% off the regular price of toys.

There doesn’t seem to be any obvious exclusions, in fact even the 75192 UCS Millennium Falcon is listed for 20% off.

I can’t find an end date for the sale but if you spot one let me know. According to the comments this sale runs until June 11th.

You can view their full range here.

Exclusivity Information For June 2018

Detective

Despite what a calendar will tell you June officially kicks of the second half of 2018 for LEGO. That means that there are a heap of new sets coming out.

I have previously done up a list of sets that are on the LEGO website but thanks to LEGO Australia I have information on who will be stocking what sets.

Big W will be home to the huge 76105 Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition from June and fingers crossed they offer a good discount on this set during their toy sale.

The new BrickHeadz continue to be exclusive to Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores.

Target gets an exclusive Creator set (31078 Treehouse Treasures) and an exclusive Friend set (41343 Heartlake City Airplane Tour). Joining the Hulkbuster at Big W is Friends set 41350 Spinning Brushes Car Wash.

The 76109 Quantum Realm Explorers set from Ant-Man will be available from Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores which is great considering the original Ant-Man set wasn’t released here at all.

Myer will also be exclusively getting 10875 Duplo Cargo Train, for the younger LEGO fans.

Perhaps the most intriguing part of the list is that Toys R Us will be getting 5 exclusives (see the list below). If Toys R Us can’t find a way out of it’s current situation then it will be interesting to see what happens to their exclusives.

You can see the full list of exclusives below. If there is something not on the list then it is either a general release or not yet decided.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

Warning, this is going to get a little confusing.

Yesterday I posted about a Myer sale that was 20% off for 2 or more items. Today the Myer website is showing 20% off without the qualification of having to buy two items.

The same exclusions seem to apply – no discount on Creator Expert, Ideas or previously discounted items.

I can’t find details on the Myer website about when this 20% off ends. According to a few people who spotted a newspaper ad this is one of the Two Day offers, so will be running until 11:59 PM on May 30th.

One advantage of being a flat 20% off is that this offer is now also active on eBay. You can get an extra 5% off with code PULL5.  You can view the Myer eBay range here.
