On Sale: Selected Sets On Sale At Target

Target 200x200

Target’s 20% off sale may have just ended, but to ease the pain their latest catalogue just happens to feature a range of sets on sale.

It’s not the most impressive list but still worth having a look.

The sale starts today (December 8th) and runs until December 14th. You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or see the list of sets below.

For those considering the Classic TV Series Batcave, it comes down to just $296.10 at the Target eBay store with code CAUZ10. You can view that listing here

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer, 28% Off At Myer’s eBay Store

It looks like we are going to get sales right up until Christmas Day. No sooner does an offer end than we get a new one.

Myer are offering 20% off toys from today (December 7th) until 11:59pm AEDT Sunday 11 December 2016.

Unfortunately like Myer’s last few sales this offer excludes LEGO Minifigures, 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS and 10253 Big Ben.

It’s unclear if this is online only or in-store too. You can view their online range here.

The 20% offer is also active on the Myer eBay page, and my quick testing seems to indicate that you can get a further 10% off with the code CAUZ10. I have heard mixed reports about that particular code, but the potential for 28% off makes it worth trying.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us

Toys R Us are back with another catalogue with LEGO on sale. It’s not their best offer but for fans excited about the release of Rogue One, there are some savings to be had on sets from the film.

The catalogue kicks off today (December 7th) and runs until December 20th.

You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or see the list of sets included below.

Australians Will Have To Wait A Lot Longer Than Most To See The LEGO Batman Movie

LEGO Batman Movie Thumb

Graham Burke, the co-CEO of Village Roadshow, is a liar. On September 9th 2014 Mr Burke told the Online Copyright Infringement Forum that holding the LEGO Movie back 54 days was a mistake. He sat on stage and told the gathered representatives (including now PM Malcolm Turnbull) that it wouldn’t happen again. He lied. It’s happening again.

“We made one hell of a mistake with LEGO. It was an Australian film, we financed it together with Warner Brothers. It was made here in Kings Cross, in Australia. Because it was so important, we held it for a holiday period. It was a disaster. It caused it to be pirated very widely. And as a consequence, no more.

Our policy go forward, is that all of our movies will release day and date with the United States”

Just a few years later and here we are. The Australian opening of The LEGO Batman Movie has officially been confirmed for March 30th 2017. That is 48 days after the US opening. That is certainly not day and date with the US.

LEGO Batman AU Release

 

Update: After a few people suggested doing so, I’ve created a change.org petition to see if we can make a difference. You can sign the petition here.

2017 Set Details

2017 Set Details Thumb

LEGO have been busy updating their online store with pages for sets that are being released in January.

After a bit of work I’ve compiled all of that information into an easy to read table with pictures, Australian RRP and a link to each product. There’s over 150 new sets being released.

This information all comes from the online store, and sets are released there before anywhere else. This list doesn’t factor in the staggered retail release that we usually get and it doesn’t account for retailer exclusives. We’ll know more about that when the 2017 retailer catalogue is released.

In the meantime have a look through the list and weep for the future of your bank balances.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Kmart

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

BigW 200x200

It’s not a 20% off sale, but this offering from Big W does have some great prices on a range of sets. There are also exclusives that you won’t find anywhere else.

This sale kicks off today (December 1st) and runs until December 14th.

While the sets on sale are interesting the highlight is almost certainly going to be Series 15 minifigures for just $2 each. Those are very cheap minifigures.

Target have also lowered the prices on their eBay store too. View the Target eBay LEGO range here.
