75251 Darth Vader’s Castle Now Available

One of the most powerful Sith lords of all time finally has a place to chill out and relax, maybe invite some friends over for a barbeque. That’s right 75251 Darth Vader’s Castle is now available for purchase.

75251_image01

The set has an RRP of $199.99 and can be purchased online directly from LEGO with VIP points, free shipping and both current bonus sets (the carousel and Kessel mine worker).

If for some reason that combination doesn’t appeal to you, the set also happens to be listed at Amazon Australia for $184.82. A slight discount but the bonuses from LEGO are probably the better deal.

On Sale: 20% Off Two or More At Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

Myer already have some other offers running so this one slipped by me.

When you buy two or more toys you’ll get 20% off your total. The range doesn’t just include LEGO if you want to get something small to trigger the discount.

Unfortunately there are the usual exclusions: Harry Potter, Creator Expert, Ideas, Technic, UCS Millennium Falcon, and Death Star.

Friends, City and Duplo sets should already be on sale for 20% off regardless of how many you buy.

This buy two or more offer ends 11:59pm AEDT tomorrow night (December 2nd).

You can view the sets that qualify for this offer here.

Thanks to Matt for the heads up.

On Sale: 25% Off At David Jones

David Jones Logo

A 25% off sale at David Jones only ended on Monday, but it seems they just can’t stay away from discounting LEGO.

From today until December 9th you can 25% off all LEGO both online and in-store. Edit: It seems the sale has ended early.

I’ve heard that a few people have managed to find Voltron sets in-store (it doesn’t seem to be online).

As always with a David Jones sale the discount doesn’t show until you add an item to your cart.

You can view David Jones’ online range here.

Thanks to everybody who messaged me about this.

These Chinese New Year Sets Look Amazing – And They’ll Be Available Here

Two Chinese New Year sets recently surfaced online and they got a lot of people talking. The biggest question was whether or not they are going to be widely available or if they are going to be exclusives. Well the official is answer is that they are going to be exclusive to the Asia Pacific region which does include Australia.

Availability will be limited but LEGO Australia have confirmed that they will be coming to Myer, David Jones, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne, Dreamworld LEGO Store and other specialty toy stores such as Outer Rim Trading Co (who have confirmed they’ve ordered stock). They will also be available at the Australian online store.

These are officially released January 1st 2019.

Here are the two sets…

80101 Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner – $89.99

80101a

The set features 6 minifigures and some amazing decorative elements.

80102 Dragon Dance $79.99

80102a

This set features 5 minifigures and an internal mechanism to make the dragon dance up and down. Lots of fantastic elements in this such as a new heart shaped tile, new printed eye tile and the 3-leaf plant element in gold. It’s a gorgeous set.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

It looks like we can expect a steady stream of sales in the lead up to Christmas. This new offer from Big W has reductions on a range of sets across multiple themes.

It’s good to see some discounts on the Harry Potter sets and the Big W exclusive Y-Wing.

This sale starts today (November 29th) and runs until Wednesday December 12th.

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

On Sale: 20% Off At Target

Target 200x200

A new Target sale starts tomorrow with a nice general offering that should help with your Christmas shopping, regardless of the theme.

From November 29th through until December 5th Target are offering 20% off all LEGO.

The catalogue also features a modest selection of sets with specific discounts that may be more than the 20% off. You can find that list at the end of this article.

Unfortunately Target has been excluding themselves from recent eBay offers so you probably won’t find any stacked deals here.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

A new eBay site-wide code has gone live this morning, offering 10% off pretty much everything.

To get your discount you’ll need to enter the code PUDDING at checkout, when you spend $120 or more. There is a maximum discount of $300 per transaction and it’s only valid for 2 transactions.

I mentioned that it was almost everything and unfortunately one of the exclusions is the entire Target store.

This is one of those eBay offers with no set end date, so get in quick!

View the eBay LEGO portal here.

Thanks to Chris for the heads up.

On Sale: Various Offers From Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

Myer has a new catalogue out today and mixed among all the other toys are a range of LEGO offers. Some are better than others but there are some discounts on the sets that are normally excluded from Myer’s sales. There are a few other offers too.

Catalogue sale

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here, or see the list of sets at the end of this article. The catalogue sale runs from today (November 27th) right through until Christmas Eve. Some stuff in the catalogue (like Harry Potter) is still RRP so I didn’t bother including them in the list.

20% off LEGO City, Friends, Ninjago and Duplo

If something that you wanted isn’t featured in the catalogue then it may still be on sale. Myer currently has a 20% off sale that seems to be applying to all Duplo, City, Friends and Ninjago sets. You can see all of the sale sets here.

Bonus Gift

If you spend over $75 you’ll also get the bonus Christmas Ornament set.

Extra 10% Off via eBay

If you are quick you can get an extra 10% off via the Myer eBay store using the code PUDDING at checkout. There is a minimum spend of $120 to qualify for the offer and it ends whenever eBay feel like ending it. Note that you won’t get the bonus gift if you order from eBay.
