On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

BigW 200x200

For younger LEGO fans it’s almost back to school time, which for some reason usually means we get a few small LEGO sales. We’re not sure why, but we certainly aren’t complaining.

This offer from Big W is for a range of selected sets, including some of the Force Awakens Star Wars sets.

The catalogue offers run from tomorrow (January 7th 2016) through until Wednesday January 13th. You can check out the catalogue here, or view the list of included sets below.

Big W are also using the catalogue to promote an online sale on ALL LEGO. We’re not sure what the specifics of the offer are but be sure to check out the Big W website tomorrow. UPDATE: The online offer is 20% off the online LEGO range. You can view the LEGO available for online purchase here.

Release Schedule For First Half Of 2016

1H 2016 Catalogue Thumb

There are lots on exciting LEGO sets being released this year and while some of them are now available online there are usually savings to be had if you can find products in a retail store. Thanks to the latest Australian retail catalogue we now know when the various themes and sets will be released, at least for the first half of 2016. This is a retail catalogue so no exclusives unfortunately.

We’ve included a full breakdown below with every set. It’s a comprehensive list with links to every set’s product page. It certainly looks like it’s going to be a busy start of the year.

You can check out the catalogue for yourself here.

Note: In the table below the links are automatically generated, and not every set will be on the LEGO site yet. There are also some sets with no thumbnail image yet. For a better look at those sets check out the catalogue.

Myer’s stocktake sale is continuing and they have a new offer that may be of interest to LEGO fans.

For every $50 you spend on toys, you will get $10 off. This works out at 20% if you are spending an amount divisible by $50. Unfortunately this is one of those sales where if you spend $80 you still only get $10 off.

This offer ends Sunday January 3rd 2016.

Via Myer. You can check out their range here.

Thanks to Stephen for letting us know about this.

2015 Year In Review

It’s officially 2016! The start of a new year is always a good time to look back and reflect on the year passed. Here’s our brief look back at 2015.

2015 Year In Review

It was a busy year
Bricking Around had huge growth through 2015. In terms of views and visitors it was the biggest year ever. The busiest day of the year was September 16th. The most popular post that day was September 2015 Sale Price Comparison.

Pricing Glitch On Australian Online Store

There seems to be a major glitch with the Australian online LEGO store – well we hope that it’s a glitch.

After adding items to your cart the price will be increased. This isn’t just adding extra tax as the amount seems higher.

LEGO Online Glitch (That set should only be $79.99)

With a lot of highly anticipated sets released today, hopefully this is fixed soon.

Thanks to Brett for letting us know about this
