On Sale: 33.5% Off Selected Sets At eBay

eBay 200

If you missed out on today’s Myer eBay double up glitch spectacular then this might be your next best option.

eBay currently has a page up for a range of LEGO sets that are 30% off their regular price. I promised 33.5% off though, and you’ll get that little bit extra with the code PICK5 at checkout. The code has a minimum spend of $30.

This sale is not the most extensive list but there are some interesting sets in the mix.

View the sale sets here.

This sale is scheduled to run until March 4th but a lot of the listings are already limited stock.

Thanks to Amanda on Facebook for the information.

On Sale: 36% Off At Myer eBay With A Discount Double-Up

UPDATE: It looks like the glitch has been fixed.

Update 2: They unfixed it? I have no idea why but the double up is back on.

It looks like the Myer eBay store currently has a glitch double up of offers.

They already have 20% off LEGO and have now launched a special eBay only code for 20% off. Both of these offers are working together to get you 36% off their LEGO prices.

The code you need is PMYERSALE at the checkout.

I suggest getting in quickly as if this is a mistake it won’t last long.

Thanks to Daeyeon for letting me know about this.

60 Years of The LEGO Brick Set Now Available At Dreamworld

The Dreamworld Facebook page today shared some exciting news for locals who missed out on the 60th anniversary promotion when it was on the LEGO website.

Dreamworld LEGO 60th Set

From today if you spend $250 or more in store then you will receive a copy of 40290 60 Years of The LEGO Brick. Unfortunately that spend requirement is really high.

This is a popular collectors item and stock is limited so don’t expect it to be around for long.

On Sale: 20% Off At Hobby Warehouse eBay Store

eBay 200

eBay have ended their site-wide 10% off sale and replaced it with a 20% off Tech sale. For some unknown reason this tech sale includes Hobby Warehouse as one of the sellers.

They have a range of hundreds of LEGO sets listed, so the 20% off may come in handy.

Note that some of their prices are well above RRP, so be careful and make sure you aren’t getting ripped off even after the 20% off.

To get your discount use the code P20TECH at checkout. There is no minimum spend but you can only use the code 3 times during the period. The code expires on February 26th.

View their eBay range here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer’s recent 20% off two or more items sale mysteriously ended earlier than it was supposed to which initially seemed like a problem. But the replacement offer that kicks off today is better.

On offer is a flat 20% off LEGO. No multiple purchases necessary.

While that may be the same discount percentage the kicker comes in the form of the anniversary codes. They weren’t working with the last offer but they are working with this one. The anniversary codes are ANNIVERSARY10 for $10 off when you spend $60 or more, ANNIVERSARY15 for $15 off when you spend $80 or more and ANNIVERSARY20 for $20 off when you spend $100 or more.

But wait, there’s more! You’ll also get the Year of the Dog bonus set. Update: They year of the dog promo is still listed on the website but it doesn’t seem to be adding to carts.

I can’t see an end date on this offer but I am guessing that it will run until Sunday February 25th.

You can view the Myer online range here, but this offer should be in-store too.

Thanks to Chris and Eric who both beat me to my regular Wednesday Myer check.

Everything Else LEGO Revealed At New York Toy Fair

Toy Fair New York Thumb

There is a lot that happens at New York Toy Fair but unfortunately we don’t get detailed press releases and pictures of everything.

That is particularly true this year as LEGO chose not to show off many of the sets for the second half of the year.

LEGO did release a detailed overview of what was at the show, so while we don’t have pictures we do have new information as well as some confirmation of earlier rumours.

New Power Functions

This news is pretty exciting. Later in this year a new Power Functions system will be rolled out with new app connectivity. A new LEGO City Passenger Train will be one of the first sets to use the new system but there will be others inlcuding an app controlled “iconic vehicle” to be announced later in the year. Unfortunately what that iconic vehicle is remains a bit of a riddler, but I’m not jokering about it.

Pirate Roller Coaster

There were some early leaks of this one but it has been confirmed that a Creator 3-in-1 Pirate Roller Coaster will be released later this year. The set will feature a full loop of new roller coaster track elements as well as pirate themed builds for the ride.

Incredibles 2

There will be three sets released in May, all in the Juniors range. People who were at the show said that buying all three sets would get you the whole Incredible family.

More Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom Set Details

As part of the New York Toy Fair event details of several more Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom sets have been released.

There are once again a mix between regular sets, juniors sets and Duplo.

75926 Pteranodon Chase

Two minifigures, including Owen (Chris Pratt). A single Pteranodon is included as well as an egg. The small jeep features a new style net launcher.

See the rest below.

Official Details of Series 18 Minifigures

This year is not just the 60th anniversary of the LEGO brick, it is also the 40th anniversary of the LEGO Minifigure. LEGO seem to think that the best way to celebrate the minifigure’s birthday is with a huge minifigure costume party. I think it’s a great idea.

This series features 17 minifigures all taking part in a birthday costume party celebration. The series will be available from April.

Here they are…

Police Officer

The birthday boy himself – a recreation of one of the first ever minifigures. There are reports out of New York Toy Fair that this minifigure is going to be rare, with only one per box. I think that’s a stupid way of doing things.

Read on to see the rest, including a gallery of high resolution pictures at the end of the article that show off a lot of the finer details.

LEGO Announces 76105 Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition

Did you see the recent Infinity War set announcement and think to yourself that the Hulkbuster was way too small? Well it seems LEGO agreed with them today announcing 76105 LEGO Superheroes Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition.

This massive UCS Hulkbuster features 1,363 pieces and stands over 25cm high.

HyperFocal: 0

Included are two different arm options that can be swapped out. You don’t just get the Hulkbuster itself, with the set coming with a wonderful display stand based on Tony Stark’s workshop. It’s a great way to display the model.

As expected with a UCS style set there is a detailed information plaque sticker.

Of course the Hulkbuster needs somebody to pilot it and in this case it’s Iron Man in his MK 43 armour. There is even a MK 43 sticker for when you are displaying the set.

I personally didn’t see this coming but I think the end result looks pretty good. Will you be getting this set when it’s released March 3rd (No VIP release)? I have sent off an email asking about the Australian RRP but haven’t heard back as yet. I’d expect this to be around $199.99 locally. Update: The Australian RRP is confirmed to be $199.99.

There are heaps of additional pictures and the full press release below.

LEGO Harry Potter Is Back

With the New York Toy Fair about to kick off LEGO have confirmed a rumour that we all hoped was true – LEGO is returning the wizarding world with a range of new sets.

The sets will cover both the original Harry Potter series and also the new Fantastic Beasts film.

The first set that has been shown off is 75954 Hogwarts Great Hall. This is a fantastic looking set with a lot of interior styling. Unfortunately the exterior seems to have some heavy sticker use.

75954 Hogwarts Great Hall Detail

This set features a pretty impressive minifigure lineup; Harry Potter, Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, Draco Malfoy, Susan Bones, Professor McGonagall, Professor Quirrell with dual Lord Voldemort face, Hagrid, Albus Dumbledore and Nearly Headless Nick, plus buildable Basilisk and Fawkes creatures, and Hedwig and Scabbers figures.

It’s great that the set includes all three main characters. Often they are split over multiple sets.

There is no Australian RRP released but with a US price of $99.99 I think it’s safe bet that it will be at least $150 here.
