LEGO At The South Pole

It may sound odd but right now there is LEGO on every single continent in the world. While for 6 out of 7 continents that isn’t much of a surprise, you don’t always see LEGO in Antarctica.

The Antarctic LEGO in question is a creation from two talented Australian LEGO Builders.

LEGO South Pole 03

Tim and his brother Jeremy both exhibit with Rainbow Bricks LUG to raise money for charities and entertain LEGO fans of all ages. This year they had a unique opportunity for one of their creations to be taken to the South Pole to spend the winter there. The brothers only had 2 days notice to design, build, and pack this vehicle to be taken on its epic journey.

The vehicle is a called a Pistenbully and this one features a radar mounted on a tire that hangs out in front of the vehicle. The radar looks down into the snow and checks for giant hidden crevasses that the South Pole vehicles might fall into.

The team at the South Pole have been kind enough to send back some photos of the creation as well as its real world counterpart. The people at the South Pole are locked in for the winter so the MOC won’t return home for another 8 months, but when it does get back it will be displayed at LEGO exhibitions to teach kids about the South Pole.

There are some more details for each photo below.

Latest LEGO Ideas Review Results

LEGO have just revealed the results of the latest LEGO Ideas review and there is one new set definitely coming, and a second still possible.

Passing the review is Women of NASA, a result that isn’t completely unexpected considering the success of the female scientists Ideas set.

On Sale: Buy 1, Get 1 Half Price At Toys R Us

Is there anything better than a nice broad LEGO sale. Something that gives you a discount on whatever it is that you are after. One of those sales just happens to kick off at Toys R Us tomorrow.

From Wednesday March 1st until Tuesday March 14th 2017 Toys R Us are offering a “Buy 1, get 1 half price” deal on all LEGO. The offer doesn’t have any mentioned exclusions, so if it’s LEGO it should be on sale.

TRU Buy1 Get1 Half Price March 1 2017

This offer works out to 25% off if you are buying two identically priced items. As always if you are buying differently priced items the cheapest one will be half price. Finally – you may need to do multiple transactions to maximise your savings; for example buying two $100 sets in one transaction and then two $20 sets in a separate transaction would be $180 while doing it all in one transaction would be $220.

Thanks to Jamie for making sure I didn’t miss this.

Batman LEGO Dimensions Pre-Order Offer From EB Games

Unfortunately the LEGO Batman Movie Story Pack for LEGO Dimensions has suffered the same fate as the film itself, with release being delayed until March 30th.

To ease the pain slightly EB Games are offering a deal for anybody that pre-orders before release. If you pre-order the LEGO Batman Movie story pack you will receive the Excalibur Batman Fun Pack for free.

LEGO Dimensions Batman Preorder Bonus EB

The EB price for the story pack is $79.99 and their price on the Fun Pack is $24.99.  For the sake of comparison the previously released Story Packs are currently $69 at Big W, while fun packs are $22. Those prices make the EB offer look pretty good.

Thanks to Wade for sending this through.

Assembly Square In Stock At Dreamworld

I know that there were a few people specifically asking about this set, so I am pleased to let you all know that I received an email from the Dreamworld LEGO Store manager informing me that 10255 Assembly Square is now in stock.

If you want to get one of these sets immediately (and live close to the store) here is your chance.

I wasn’t given stock numbers but there is a good chance that stock will move quickly.
