On Sale: 20% Off LEGO At David Jones Until October 6

David Jones 20pc Off Sept 2014

It looks like David Jones has decided not to miss out on the school holiday sales action.

From now (25th September 2014) until October 6th David Jones are offering a flat 20% off LEGO.

Please note that there is some conflicting information on the David Jones website. The front page says that this sale excludes LEGO Star Wars, but there is no mention of that on the offer page;

Also save 20% on full-priced toys from LEGO, MONSTER HIGH, THOMAS & FRIENDS, DISCOVERY KIDS, V-TECH and STAR WARS. Offer ends 06/10/14.

The online store is showing the discounted price for Star Wars sets.

Thanks to our reader YT for letting us know about this sale.

Bionicle To Return In 2015

LEGO Bionicle 2015

It was not exactly a well kept secret, but LEGO has officially revealed that Bionicle will return in 2015.

We suspect that reaction to this news is going to be quite mixed. There are some very dedicated Bionicle fans out but there, but there are also a lot of people that don’t like the style. It will certainly be interesting to see how these sets are received once they hit the shelves.

There should be more information released at New York Comic Con in October. Until then all we do know is that these new sets will revolve around a new mask called the Mask of Creation, which is made from from raw magic and solid gold.

We’d love to know what you think of the return of Bionicle. Let us know in the comments.

Reminder: Gold Coast Brick Event This Weekend

If you are from the Brisbane or Gold Coast area and looking for something LEGO related to this weekend then you are in luck. The Gold Coast Brick Event kicks off on Saturday morning.

gc-2014

The Gold Coast Brick Event, will be the biggest event of its kind held so far on the Gold Coast and will feature over 40 different exhibits created by the talented brick builders from QLUG – Queensland LEGO® User Group.

Themes on display encompass Space and Star Wars, City (with working trains), Friends, Harry Potter, Medieval, Castle, Duplo City, operating Technic vehicles, Pirates, and much much more. Build and play tables will also be popular with children and the adults of all ages and LEGO retail outlets will offer fans all the latest in LEGO® products, games, merchandise and jewellery creations.

The most popular display with fans is the Space/Star Wars space station, painstakingly created over many years by a local Gold Coast member. The sheer number of minifigures in this display is impressive and one not to be missed.

All The September Deals Compared

LEGO In Store

With so many different sales starting this week we thought it would be helpful to compare the various deals on offer.

We have combined everything that was featured in the catalogues into a single list, sorted by set number. From this list you should be able to determine who has the best price for a particular set.

There are also a few things to take into consideration before looking through the data

  • Myer has 20% off all LEGO, so if a set you want is listed with a discount lower than 20% you may want to check the Myer price.
  • Target has 20% off City and Star Wars, so if a set in either theme is listed with a discount lower than 20% you may want to check the Target price.
  • Kmart and Big W discounts less than 20% may still be cheaper than Target or Myer, as they have slightly lower regular prices.
  • The Kmart and Big W sales are for selected sets only, not a broad percentage off sale.

Check out the table below

On Sale: 20% Off Star Wars & City Sets At Target

Target Logo 2014

It looks like this is the last of our school holiday sales, and unfortunately it’s not quite as good as some of the others.

From Thursday 18th September 2014 until Wednesday October 1st Target are offering 20% off Star Wars and City sets.

There are also two Friends sets listed at a discount in the catalogue, but the 20% does not appear to apply to that theme more broadly.
