Star Wars Day is here again!

Sure May The 4th may not have the same mainstream appeal as something like Christmas, but for LEGO Star Wars fans it’s still a great day.

Toys R Us have just released details of a new LEGO Lovers sale – with over 50 sets now reduced.

Overall the discounts aren’t going to blow anybody away but the range itself is fairly extensive with a good variety of themes covered.

This sale starts today (May 2nd) online or tomorrow (May 3rd) in-store. Discount prices are valid until May 8th.

You can view the whole selection here, or see a list with additional details below.

On Sale: 20% Off Star Wars LEGO At Amazon Australia

Amazon Australia Thumb

There was a lot of excitement when Amazon launched in Australia but since then things haven’t actually been that exciting. This new offer is probably the first time we’ve seen a sale that competes with the local bricks and mortar stores.

To celebrate Star Wars day Amazon AU are offering 20% off all LEGO Star Wars sets from today until 11:59 PM (AEDT) on May 9th.

This offer is only valid on items that are being sold by Amazon themselves. It won’t apply to third party sellers using the Amazon platform. This link should have all of the relevant listings.

There are also two sets that have deeper discounts;

Both of those are great prices.

Thanks to Wade for the information.

Dreamworld LEGO Store To Offer BB-8 Polybag on Star Wars Day

In an interesting development I have learned that the Dreamworld LEGO store will be offering the same May The 4th promotion as the online LEGO store.

What exactly is that promotion? Well if you spend over the set amount (I’ve heard it’s $120 at Dreamworld but haven’t been able to confirm) you’ll receive this adorable little BB-8 Polybag.

The store has also indicated that they will have the UCS Y-Wing available for purchase too.

Having the same promotion at the same time as online is a first for the store. It’s definitely a good option if you are in the area and wanting a Y-Wing. Stock will be limited so may not last all day.

Thanks to Jeremy from RebelScum for sharing this with me.

Review: Incredibles 2 Juniors Mega Review

This year is a big one for a certain Disney owned superhero franchise. No I’m not talking about the MCU and Infinity War, I’m talking about The Incredibles 2 – one of the most highly anticipated Pixar sequels.

The film itself won’t be out until June 14th but the film’s tie-in LEGO sets are out now. Thanks to LEGO I will be taking a look at all 3 sets.

LEGO Juniors Incredibles 2 Family

Seeing as these are Juniors sets I am going to review all three sets in this mega review. Each set will have a separate heading so you can scroll down to one of you aren’t interested in all of them.

As these are Juniors sets I won’t be going in to as much depth as my larger set reviews but I’ll still cover the important stuff for each set.

It’s going to be a little hard to compare the sets to the film with it not out for over a month, so some guess work might be needed.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

The good people over at eBay sent out a code today for 10% off everything.

You’ll need to spend a minimum of $50 to qualify for the offer and there is a maximum discount of $100 per transaction.

To get your discount enter the code PAYBACK at checkout.

The offer ends at 11:59 PM AEST on April 30th.

Head over to eBay and have a look around.

This offer pairs nicely with the 20% off prices already listed on the Target eBay store. Combined you’ll get 28% off. It’s not quite as good as Myer’s double up offer but still quite a high percentage off. View the Target eBay LEGO range here.

Thanks to Jason for reminding me about this.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer, 36% Off At Myer’s eBay Store

Myer Super Saturday May 2015

Myer are having another Super Saturday sale, with 20% off toys now live on both the online store and their eBay store.

The sale is online only today but will be active in-store tomorrow too. This offer ends 11:59 PM AEST Saturday April 28th.

Unfortunately there are some exclusions: Jurassic World Toys, Hans Solo Star Wars Lego, and Creator Expert Lego. AKA The new interesting stuff.

There is still plenty to check out. You can see their online range here. 

If you are willing to go the eBay route you’ll also be able to use the code PICKMYER to double up on the 20% off for a total 36% off.

Official Details of 10261 Roller Coaster

First LEGO introduced an Amusement Park sub-theme for their Creator Expert line then they introduced a whole new track system in late 2017. Everybody put two and two together and realised it was only a matter of time before we got a roller coaster. Well here it is, and it’s incredible.

10261_Prod

I am absolutely blown away by this set. The product picture alone doesn’t do justice to how massive it is (seriously, check out the video below). The set comes in at 4124 pieces and comes with 11 minifigures.

No Australian RRP at this stage but I am guessing it will be around $499.99, based on the international prices. The set will be released for VIPs on May 16th, with a general release on June 1st.

Update: Australian price confirmed as $499.99.
Coaster AU price

The roller coaster features a working mechanism that can optionally be powered by a power functions motor. The press release also mentions that you can integrate LEGO Boost in to the model, but not much detail is provided about that.

You get two sets of 3 carts, with a switchable section of rail so you can keep one set out of the way. All of the carts feature lap bars for an even more realistic look.

Beyond the track itself there are also lots of other elements such as a brick built Coaster sign, fairy floss cart and ticket booth.

LEGO sent out the press release with just two images but there were also two videos. I have combined them in to a single video that you can check out below. Seeing this in actually really helps sell how impressive it is.

Check out the box shot and press release below.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer’s eBay Store

Myer eBay 200

We have a new eBay code, this time just for Myer.

If you enter the code PICKMYER at checkout you will get 20% off your order, and this seems to stack with the few items that are already discounted in their eBay store.

As this is a code offer and not a regular discount you won’t be able to add any extra eBay codes for further discounts. This code is set to expire April 30th.

Unikitty Gets Her Own Theme, Including Unfeelable Bags

One of the most fun characters from the original LEGO Movie was Princess Unikitty. A character who now has her own Cartoon Network show, and now a LEGO theme to go with it.

The sets are very strange looking but they seem to match the aesthetic of the show quite well. Generally they aren’t something that I can see myself buying, but I don’t have any issue with them existing.

The Collectible Unikitty Series though is absolutely terrible and I am not a fan at all. Why? Because from the initial pictures none of the blind bags contain unique elements. Feeling out the one you want is going to be impossible. You can distinguish between the Unikitty and Puppycorn ones but that’s it.

41775 Collectable Unikitty Series 1

I don’t like the idea of a child ending up with 10 of the same Unikitty. The Collectable Minifigures already walked a fine line but I think this takes the concept too far.

You can see the rest of the sets below.
