Possible Leaked Details Of 71016 Kwik-E-Mart

We just spotted this image on Facebook, and asked if we could share this with our readers.

Update: We have changed the title of this article to more accurately reflect the details of the leak. See this post for further clarification.

Kwik E Mart

This is a preliminary image, which can be different from the final production model. UPDATE: The image appears to come from a LEGO Ideas submission, and is likely just a placeholder.

As for the price – this does seem quite high based on the picture we can see here, however this could be the New Zealand price. As an example 75060 Slave I is $349.99 in New Zealand and only $299.99 in Australia.
UPDATE: According to a Toys R Us employee, this set is listed in their system at $329.99.

As more information becomes available about this set we will be sure to post it.

Thanks to Mark H for allowing us to share this image.

Empire Magazine in the US have done a large spread on The LEGO Movie, including an interview with the directors of the first film Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

The full article isn’t accessible online but there is a snippet of the interview; and it may give us a huge hint about the plot of the sequel.

Warning: There are spoilers for the first movie past this point

On Sale: $10 Off For Every $50 Spent At Myer

Myer Logo Small

We can’t find the details of this particular offer online ourselves, but the information comes from long time Bricking Around supporter Brad.

From now (2nd January 2015) through until Sunday 4th January Myer are offering $10 off for every $50 spent.

At first glance this may seem like a 20% off sale, but it does have one major difference; this is $10 off for every $50, so if you spend $80 you will still only save $10. To make the most of this deal you really need to spend as close as possible to multiples of $50.

The offer is available online and should automatically apply at checkout.

The Most Anticipated New Sets Finally Available

This set is actually related to the Detective’s Office modular that should be available soon. The story with the Detective is the clandestine distribution of baked goods, and this flower cart is hiding a secret shipment of sweet treats.

That figure is just amazing. We are humbled that so many people come here for LEGO news. Hopefully it was worth the visit.
