On Sale: 10% – 15% Off At eBay

eBay 200

eBay is back with a new code at the perfect time.

On offer is 10% off or an impressive 15% off for eBay Plus members.

This code isn’t valid on all items and only runs for a limited time (June 20th at the latest) so I suggest checking it out sooner rather than later.

To get your discount you’ll need to enter the code PLINK at checkout and spend over $120. The code can be used a total of 4 times.

This offer should stack nicely with some of the Big W and Myer sales;

2019 Toy Sales: All The Deals From Myer

Toy Sale Retailer Myer

Myer’s 2019 Toy Sale catalogue is out and to be honest it is incredibly underwhelming.

On offer is 20% off City, Friends and Duplo. Which is somehow narrower than the sales they regularly have. One area where I will give credit to Myer is they have some fantastic prices on The LEGO Movie 2 sets.

There are also numerous sets featured in the catalogue. When you filter out the ones that are RRP that list is not very long at all. You can see it below.

The sale runs from tomorrow (June 18th) until Sunday July 21st.

You can find the catalogue here if you’d like to check it out.

Myer is advertising a price match policy but even that is not as good as Big W’s price beat policy.

Amazon Matches or Betters Big W Sale Prices

Amazon Logo 210

In a completely shocking move Amazon has matched or bettered a lot of the Big W sale prices.

Before you head to the Big W website it is certainly worth giving Amazon a quick check. You can find the Amazon LEGO landing page here.

I’ll try and do some price round-ups later tonight.

Thanks to Matt and R.E.F for the heads up.

Bricking Around Turns 6

Here I am 6 years later still trying to bring you the best LEGO news and sales information.

Thank you to everybody who’s come along for the journey so far.

Release Schedule For The Second Half of 2019


The new LEGO catalogue is out now online, which means we now have the full retail release schedule for the second half of the year.

Edit: For some reason the catalogue is no longer online, but you can find a PDF copy here. Warning – It’s a 72MB PDF file.

The catalogue features the sets that will be widely available. Retailer exclusives and recently announced sets are not included.

I’ve done my best to get pricing and a thumbnail of what I can but there are a few of these sets not yet up on LEGO’s servers.

I suggest checking out the catalogue for yourself as well as the full list at the end of this post.

There’s no look at Star Wars sets just a teaser that new products will launch in October.


We also get our first look at a Technic set using the new Bluetooth components.


The catalogue also has more details about the Hidden Side theme.

Toys R Us Is Back – And Worth A Look

Toys R US Logo 200px

The tagline for the film Pet Sematary is “Sometimes dead is better”. I’m pleased to say that on first impressions that doesn’t seem to be true for the revived Toys R Us.

The new online store has gone live today with a fairly broad LEGO offering. Most of which seems to be advertised at slightly below RRP.

The store is also advertising a LEGO City Fire ATV bonus when your total is over $50 and includes LEGO. I am not sure if there are any of these still available as it does say it’s limited to 1000.

You can check out the LEGO range for yourself here.

Here’s a few of their prices…

LEGO Announces 75936 Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage

Jurassic Park is a movie packed full of iconic scenes, characters and creatures.

Today LEGO have announced a set that celebrates all of those.

Introducing 75936 Jurassic Park: T. Rex Rampage


Firstly this set celebrates the true hero of Jurassic Park – the T-Rex who escapes from imprisonment and in the end (spoiler alert) saves the surviving humans from the raptors. The brick-built T-Rex is amazing and certainly more impressive than the moulded ones we’ve had before.

Next we’ve got the Jurassic Park gate, which has become an iconic visual from the film. The reverse side of the gate also features a collection of vignettes from the movie.


Last but not least we’ve got the amazing human characters.


This set will set you back $399.99 here in Australia and will be available June 19th.

Check out the official set description and images below.
