Celebrate Star Wars Day With The World’s Largest LEGO Unboxing

As we all know, this year marks the 20th Anniversary of LEGO Star Wars, and what better day to celebrate this special anniversary than Star Wars Day – May The 4th?

This year LEGO Australia will be hosting the world’s largest LEGO Star Wars unboxing event at Westfield Chatswood (Anderson Street, Chatswood NSW 2067). The event takes place on May 4th and May 5th.

Visitors will also get a once in a lifetime chance to meet LEGO Star Wars Creative Director Jens Kronvold Frederikson who’s flying down under from LEGO HQ in Billund, Denmark for the occasion.

There will be prizes for best-dressed attendees donning their favourite Star Wars costumes, along with workshops with Jens, Star Wars trivia and the opportunity to see the 501st Legion in the flesh.

WHERE: Westfield Chatswood
WHEN: Saturday May 4th (9am-6pm) & Sunday May 5th (10am-6pm)

The Myer eBay store is offering a new coupon code that actually seems a little better than a regular Myer sale.

Hopefully we get another 20% off sale at the actual Myer store and this becomes a double stack.

This offer ends May 8th 2019. Maximum discount of $500 per transaction, maximum of three transactions.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

Myer Super Weekend March 2015

I really need to get hold of the calendar that Myer is using, because it turns out that this weekend is a Super Weekend and I had no idea!

Myer are offering a pretty standard 20% off LEGO sale with a bunch of exclusions (Creator Expert, Ideas, Harry Potter and Wizarding World).

Still might be worth checking out.

This is a weekend sale so it will end Sunday night (11:59 PM AEST online).

You can find the Myer LEGO page here.

On Sale: 30% Off At Shopforme

It’s not often that you get a flat 30% off sale, but that seems to be what is on offer from specialist LEGO retailer Shopforme.

This sale is part of a birthday celebration so I assume that it’s not going to last long.

Unfortunately a lot of the popular sets are gone but it’s still worth a look.

You can check out their range here.

Thanks to everybody who emailed me about this today.

Avengers Tower Promo Now Live

The details aren’t up on the promo page just yet but if you buy a large Marvel set ($129 or more total) you’ll notice that the highly anticipated Avengers Stark Tower promotional set is now being added to carts.
