To give back this holiday season $0.50 from each ticket will be donated to Starlight Children’s Foundation. Starlight tries to bring fun and happiness to the lives of children in hospital. LEGO to me is all about fun and happiness so I think it’s a great match.

Tickets are $2 each and can be purchased via PayPal. Just make a payment for the total amount of tickets you’d like to purchase – for example $20 if you’d like 10 tickets.

The draw will take place on Thursday December 13th and all ticket purchases must be finalised by 10 AM AEST. A winner will be chosen by computerised random selection.

These Chinese New Year Sets Look Amazing – And They’ll Be Available Here

Two Chinese New Year sets recently surfaced online and they got a lot of people talking. The biggest question was whether or not they are going to be widely available or if they are going to be exclusives. Well the official is answer is that they are going to be exclusive to the Asia Pacific region which does include Australia.

Availability will be limited but LEGO Australia have confirmed that they will be coming to Myer, David Jones, LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne, Dreamworld LEGO Store and other specialty toy stores such as Outer Rim Trading Co (who have confirmed they’ve ordered stock). They will also be available at the Australian online store.

These are officially released January 1st 2019.

Here are the two sets…

80101 Chinese New Year’s Eve Dinner – $89.99

80101a

The set features 6 minifigures and some amazing decorative elements.

80102 Dragon Dance $79.99

80102a

This set features 5 minifigures and an internal mechanism to make the dragon dance up and down. Lots of fantastic elements in this such as a new heart shaped tile, new printed eye tile and the 3-leaf plant element in gold. It’s a gorgeous set.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W 2017 Logo

It looks like we can expect a steady stream of sales in the lead up to Christmas. This new offer from Big W has reductions on a range of sets across multiple themes.

It’s good to see some discounts on the Harry Potter sets and the Big W exclusive Y-Wing.

This sale starts today (November 29th) and runs until Wednesday December 12th.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here, or as always see a list of the included sets below.

On Sale: 20% Off At Target

Target 200x200

A new Target sale starts tomorrow with a nice general offering that should help with your Christmas shopping, regardless of the theme.

From November 29th through until December 5th Target are offering 20% off all LEGO.

The catalogue also features a modest selection of sets with specific discounts that may be more than the 20% off. You can find that list at the end of this article.

Unfortunately Target has been excluding themselves from recent eBay offers so you probably won’t find any stacked deals here.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

A new eBay site-wide code has gone live this morning, offering 10% off pretty much everything.

To get your discount you’ll need to enter the code PUDDING at checkout, when you spend $120 or more. There is a maximum discount of $300 per transaction and it’s only valid for 2 transactions.

I mentioned that it was almost everything and unfortunately one of the exclusions is the entire Target store.

This is one of those eBay offers with no set end date, so get in quick!

Thanks to Chris for the heads up.

On Sale: Various Offers From Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

Myer has a new catalogue out today and mixed among all the other toys are a range of LEGO offers. Some are better than others but there are some discounts on the sets that are normally excluded from Myer’s sales. There are a few other offers too.

Catalogue sale

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here, or see the list of sets at the end of this article. The catalogue sale runs from today (November 27th) right through until Christmas Eve. Some stuff in the catalogue (like Harry Potter) is still RRP so I didn’t bother including them in the list.

20% off LEGO City, Friends, Ninjago and Duplo

If something that you wanted isn’t featured in the catalogue then it may still be on sale. Myer currently has a 20% off sale that seems to be applying to all Duplo, City, Friends and Ninjago sets. You can see all of the sale sets here.

Bonus Gift

If you spend over $75 you’ll also get the bonus Christmas Ornament set.

Extra 10% Off via eBay

If you are quick you can get an extra 10% off via the Myer eBay store using the code PUDDING at checkout. There is a minimum spend of $120 to qualify for the offer and it ends whenever eBay feel like ending it. Note that you won’t get the bonus gift if you order from eBay.
