Sydney Brick Show This Weekend

The Sydney Brick Show is back for 2018, now at a new venue.

This weekend (April 21st & 22nd) the Penrith Panthers Pavilion will be taken over by a huge collection of LEGO creations.

Sydney Brick Show 2018 Banner

Each year the organisers endeavour to bring fresh ideas for the enjoyment of patrons and this year there are quite a few! Highlights include interactive displays, a free build area, the famous graffiti wall and a giant Ninjago spinner. Don’t miss a world record attempt at the most minifig habitats (over 1200 on display) as well as the gigantic space colony ”GALACTIC FRONTIER” where the rare ”LEGOTONIUM” is mined.

Monies raised at the Sydney Brick Show 2018 will be used to provide support to Nepean Area Disabilities Organisation (NADO). NADO is a community-based charity that supports people with disabilities, their families and carers in Western Sydney, including the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Penrith suburbs and surrounding areas.

Tickets are $19.10 for adults and $14.00 for juniors (4-16 years). Unfortunately there is also a $5.25 handling fee per transaction. You can get your tickets here.

You can learn more about the event via the Sydney Brick Show website, Facebook Page, or event page below.

On Sale: Toys R Us Slashes Prices of Two Large Sets

I understand that a sale with two sets is pretty terrible but the prices make this sale worth sharing.

Toys R Us has a catalogue out today that features two large sets with deep discounts…

  • 70912 Arkham Asylum for $169.96, or $100 off the regular price.
  • 75188 Resistance Bomber for $129.99, or $50 off the regular price.

Toys R Us Price Reductions April 2018

The sale starts tomorrow (April 18th) in store but should be online tonight. I am not sure how this offer will stack with the current buy one, get one half price offer. Fingers crossed they do stack.

The sale ends May 1st.

 

Free Darth Vader Pod Now Available

The new sets from Solo are officially available from today. Getting them from LEGO Online isn’t going to be the most cost effective option but if were considering it then you might be interested to learn about this new promotion.

Spend over $100 on LEGO Star Wars and receive this free Darth Vader Pod

Darth Vader Pod April 2018

This offer runs from 13th April to 3rd May 2018, or while stocks last. Unfortunately that means it won’t still be available on Star Wars Day. Hopefully there is another great promotion running then.

More information about this promotion can be found here.

Jurassic World Sets Spotted In Kmart

It looks like the new Jurassic World sets are starting to show up in stores a little earlier than they are supposed to.

Bricking Around reader Isaac got in touch last night to let me know that he spotted some of the sets in his local Kmart (Victoria Point in QLD). We now have Kmart prices for three of the new sets. Two from the Jurassic World theme and the awesome looking Jurassic Park related set.

75932 Jurassic Park Velociraptor Chase – $59

Updated Exclusivity Information For April

Detective

I have been in touch with LEGO this morning and they were kind enough to send through a bit of an update on retailer exclusivity for some new sets. This list should help you plan out some of your purchases.

There are a heap of new BrickHeadz out – Go Brick Me, Infinity War, Solo, Jurassic World and The Incredibles II. All of these are exclusive to Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores. They are all April releases so should be out by the end of the month.

The latest modular 10260 Downtown Diner is hitting Myer this April. Hopefully it arrives when there is a 20% off or better sale.

21313 Ship in A Bottle should be easier to find as it is coming to Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores in May.

Jurassic World will have a $99.99 exclusive T-Rex Transport set coming to Toys R Us later this month too.

New Star Wars buildable versions of Han Solo, Range Trooper and Darth Maul will be available from Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores in April.

You can see the full list here. If you don’t see something on the list it is either on the earlier version, yet to be determined or general release.

75192 Back In Stock At LEGO Online

75192 available

Still on the hunt for a UCS Millennium Falcon? Well at the moment it is in stock on the LEGO online store. You’ll even get the Minifigure Factory promotional set.

Chances are it won’t last long again.

Get it here before it goes again.

On Sale: Batcave and Hoth Both Under $200 Via Target eBay

Target eBay

Target currently has 20% off LEGO and those prices are now showing up on the Target eBay store. With the addition of the code PULL5 you should be able to get an extra 5% off bringing your discount to 24% off their regular prices.

That discount is pretty good but there are two sets that are reduced considerably more: 76025 Classic TV Series Batcave and 75098 Assault on Hoth are both 50% off at $199. With the addition of the PULL5 code both of those come down to $189.05. That’s a great price if you haven’t already got those sets.

View the Target eBay range here, if you sort by price those two sets will be towards the top.

If you don’t want to go via eBay you can get either set for $199 via the Target website: Batcave and Hoth.

The regular 20% off ends April 29th but I am not sure if the 50% off prices will run that long.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

I went to post about this sale from Myer earlier today and the Myer online store had gone wonky and was listing every set as sold out. Now that things appear to be working again I am happy to let you know that Myer are offering 20% off all toys, including LEGO.

I can’t see an end date for this offer advertised but I am assuming it will run until Sunday. The offer should be in-store and online.

The anniversary codes still seem to be dead.

Extra 5% off via eBay

If you do want to try and save a little extra you can use the code PULL5 when purchasing via eBay for an extra 5% off (min $30 spend). You can view the Myer eBay range here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Target

Target 200x200

Target haven’t been winning us over with their regular prices lately, but this offer should make them a bit more of a tempting option.

From tomorrow (April 5th) until Wednesday April 11th  April 29th Target are offering 20% off all LEGO.

No specific themes or sets are excluded from the sale. It’s a regular catalogue sale so will be online and in-store.

You can view the Target online range here.

Update: The catalogue ends next week but the 20% off runs until the 29th of April. Thanks to Sacha for the update.
