Myer Logo Generic 200px

Myer are back with an offer even better than their last Super Weekend.

They are now offering 25% off LEGO until Sunday July 1st.

A few people have already spotted some of the July releases (City, Friends, Ninjago) in Myer stores around the country so this could work out well for anybody after some of those.

Unfortunately there are some exclusions: clearance, hot price items, Creator Expert, Ideas, 75192 Millennium Falcon and 75159 Death Star.

You can view their online range here or head in store.

You can also get 5% extra off the discounted prices via the Myer eBay store. Use the code PULL5 at checkout.View their eBay range here.

21311 Voltron Officially Announced

It feels like a lifetime ago that the LEGO Ideas Voltron project passed review. Now, finally, the final set is due to be released.

Introducing 21311 Voltron

21311_prod

Coming in at 2,321 pieces this is the biggest buildable LEGO mech ever.

Of course Voltron isn’t just a big mech, Voltron is comprised of 5 lions, each of which is fully recreated here. That’s right – you build all 5 lions and then combine them just like you’d hope for with a Voltron set.

As well the lions you also get Voltron’s sword and shield.

I admit that I am not overly familiar with the IP but I think this looks great. I’m tempted to catch up on the Netflix series now.

The set will be released to VIPs on Monday 23rd July. For everybody else it will go on sale August 1st. The Australian RRP is $289.99.

2018 Toy Sales – All The Deals From Target

Toy Sale Retailer Target

Period: June 28 – July 18 2018

Big Ticket Items: Some small exclusives

Christmas Lay-by: No

View catalogue

The latest Target catalogue features their toy sale offering and it’s a fairly standard offering – 20% off all LEGO.

It may be lacking in big exclusives like Big W’s Hulkbuster but Target does have two smaller exclusives that are on sale. There is 41343 Heartlake City Airplane Tour for $35 and 31078 Treehouse Treasures for $30.

The catalogue is full of sets that appear to be discounted further than the advertised 20% off. You can view a list of those below.

Sale prices are also active on the Target eBay store and you can get an extra 5% off with the code PULL5View the eBay range here.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

Did you miss the weekend’s eBay Plus 15% off? Well eBay is offering a little something for everybody.

Using the code PIZZAZZ at checkout will get you 10% off your purchase over $50.

This is one of those annoying codes that will work for as long as it’s advertised. Essentially eBay will pull it when they get tired of giving the discount.

Head over to eBay now to look around.

This code should also stack with any other discounts that don’t require a code. For example the sets that Myer has on sale. You can view the Myer LEGO range here.

On Sale: 15% Off eBay Plus Items

eBay 200

In an effort to catch people before they sign up for Amazon Prime, eBay are offering some weekend specials for their “eBay Plus” service.

There are a few hourly offers but the more interesting deal is 15% off Plus items.

You’ll need to be a Plus member to take advantage of the offer but there is a 30 day free trial. eBay Plus is $49 per year ($25 for the first year) and gives you free shipping as well as access to exclusive offers like this sale.

To get your 15% off you’ll need the code PLUS15 at checkout and spend over $50. This offer ends 11:59 PM AEST on Sunday June 24th.

Unfortunately the Big W listings don’t seem to be covered under the Plus banner but it looks like the Myer listings are. You can get a further 15% off their 20% off prices. View the Myer listings here.

Here is a general listing of LEGO listings in the Plus category. That result is fairly broad so be sure to check that prices before the discount aren’t a ripoff.

There are certainly listings from well known sellers that are worth checking out. This UCS Falcon listed at RRP would be nice with a 15% discount.

App users may want to use a different device to check this out. I am not sure how well any of those links will work with the app.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer Super Saturday May 2015

Myer are having another Super Saturday sale. I’m still not sure how they determine whether a Saturday is super or regular but I’m not complaining.

On offer is 20% off toys, including almost all LEGO. This offer is online now or in-store tomorrow (Saturday June 23rd) only.

They already had 20% off a lot of themes but this will be good for those sets that weren’t covered.

Unfortunately there are still some exclusions: Clearance,  Creator Expert, Ideas, Millennium Falcon & Death Star. Edit: Looks like Creator Expert and Ideas are included.

You can view their online range here.

Extra 5% off via eBay

If the Myer eBay store has something that you are after you will be able to get an extra 5% off with the code PULL5.

Toys R Us Australia To Close

Toys R US Logo 200px

The Toys R Us brand has had a dark cloud over it since the US arm first announced they were filing Chapter 11 Bankruptcy back in September 2017. As we know the US didn’t recover and has now closed all stores. The same fate befell other countries shortly after.

Now, after administrators failed to find a buyer for the company,  all Australian stores will now be closing.

Regardless of how you feel about the company this is sad news – over 700 staff will be made redundant. Less competition is also bad for consumers.

The online store will be taken offline tomorrow and open online orders will be delivered to customers in cases where they have paid in full and stock is available. Gift cards must be used by July 5th, but in order to do so you will have to spend the equivalent amount yourself. For example to use a $50 gift card your purchase will need to be at least $100. Lay-bys will also be honoured until July 5th.

Toys R Us was home to several exclusive LEGO sets, with more that were scheduled for June. I have spoken to LEGO Australia about these but as of now there is no official statement on what will be happening in regards to these sets. As soon as I know more I will share that information with you.

There is likely to be liquidation sales happening soon and I will do my best to share those with you as they happen.
