Over in the UK they have the luxury of physical LEGO stores as well as LEGO store calendars that outline the upcoming promotions. While we don’t have physical stores here, we do generally follow the UK’s lead when it comes to promotions – we just only get them online.
The latest calendar for March and April is now available and it shows what potential promotions we can look forward to.
March 1 – 31: Free Nexo Knights Knight’s Cycle with any Nexo Knights Purchase.
We’re not sure what the $AU spend will be but any of the Nexo Knights sets should qualify. The Knight’s Cycle set is set number 30371.
April 1 – 30: Free 100 Bonus VIP Points with any purchase
If you are planning on spending hundreds then you might be disappointed this isn’t double VIP points, but 100 bonus points isn’t too bad
The product page for 75098 Assault On Hoth has just gone live on the Australian online LEGO store – which means that we have an official Australian price.

What do you think of the price? It’s what we expected for the theme and part count.

It seems like ages since we last had a Toys R Us offer but the new catalogue features a range of sets reduced.
Included sets are from the City, Nexo Knights, Star Wars and Friends themes. Of course we’d prefer a broader sale but there should be enough of mix to make it worth a look.
This sale starts tomorrow (February 17th) and runs until Tuesday March 1st 2016.
You can view the catalogue here or see the included sets below.
If you missed out on picking up something from Target’s eBay store during the recent 10% off sale then we have so good news – they are now offering 20% off.
From today (Monday February 16) until February 21st 2016 Target are offering 20% off all items on their eBay store – including their LEGO range. Just enter code CTARGET at checkout.
The New York Toy Fair press release gave us the first information on the newest UCS Star Wars set and now that the show is underway we have a huge gallery of pictures as well as the official press release.
Introducing 75098 Assault On Hoth – 2,144 pieces, 14 minifigures
Hoth is one of the most iconic planets in the original trilogy and 75098 attempts to capture the entire rebel base with a selection of smaller builds that can be connected together. The modular builds include an Ion Cannon, Wampa cave and Snowspeeder among others. There seems to be a lot of people disappointed with the modular approach the designers went with.
As soon as we know the Australian RRP we will be sure to share it. The set will be available from the online LEGO Store on April 30th – so we shouldn’t have to wait too long for local pricing.
Check out the full image gallery and press release below.
While having a look for information about the New York Toy Fair we spotted confirmation that LEGO’s rumoured large scale Hoth set is on it’s way.
There have been plenty of hints and teases but now we have something official. Fingers crossed we will get pictures once the Toy Fair kicks off.
The set is officially called Assault on Hoth Base and it will feature 2,144 pieces and at least 6 minifigures including Luke and Han. From the description it sounds like the set will be made up of several sub-builds that can connect together in various ways to create your own Hoth Base layout. The press release specifically mentions a Wampa cave as part of the set.
With a US price of $249.99 this set is likely to be around $400 in Australia.
LEGO Assault on Hoth™ Base will Challenge Even the Most Skilled Fan Builders
Experienced builders can recreate the Rebel Force’s Echo Base from Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back in an unbelievably detailed recreation of one of the most iconic scenes in the original Star Wars trilogy. The 2,144-piece building set inspires fans to build their own scouting missions with the Snowspeeder, armed with twin spring-loaded shooters, and get back to base on the speeder bike to help Luke, Han and the other Rebel heroes. The modular design enables fans to customize their Rebel base configuration, including a Wampa cave and Wampa figure. The set features LEGO minifigure versions of Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Toryn Farr, Wes Janson, Wedge Antilles, K-3PO, and more. Available May 1 for $249.99.
It felt like 2016 was off to a slow start for sales but it seems that things are picking up - We have just learned that online retailer Twoscoops are offering 20% off their entire range of LEGO.
The sale kicked off yesterday (Tuesday February 9th) and runs for one week only (Tuesday February 16th 2016).
You can check out their range here and as always with an online retailer don’t forget to factor postage into your overall saving.
Thanks to Steve B for sharing this.
After starting early on their eBay store, the Myer 20% off offer we previously mentioned is now live on the actual Myer site and should be active in-store now.
From today (Wednesday February 10th) until Sunday February 14th you will be able to get 20% off the full price of all LEGO.
The Myer online range seems to be a bit more extensive than their limited eBay listing. The online store also offers a Click & Collect option.
