On Sale: Various Offers From Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

The good people at Myer like to make things difficult for me by having multiple different offers all running at once…

Offers

20% off one item, 25% off two or more
This is an online only offer on Duplo, City and Friends themes only. This particular sale ends at 11:59pm AEST June 4th 2017. View the range.

20% off LEGO
Everything else appears to be 20% off. This offer appears to be online and in-store too. This runs until Friday June 2nd (I believe) View all LEGO.

Additional Discounts

The following codes all appear to be working as well

  • ANNIVERSARY10 – $10 off when you spend $60 or more
  • ANNIVERSARY15 – $15 off when you spend $80 or more
  • ANNIVERSARY20 – $20 off when you spend $100 or more

Possible Glitch

Earlier this morning (May 31st) the Myer website appeared to have a pricing glitch – with sets that are 20% off being given an additional 25% off if you buy two or more. This glitch when combined with the various anniversary codes was leading to some people getting nearly 50% off their purchases. I just did a quick test before posting this and was able to replicate the glitch.

eBay Sale

The 20% off sale (everything except Duplo, City and Friends) is also running on the Myer eBay store. With the code WINTER10 you can also get an additional 10% off. It’s not as good as the glitch above, but the Myer eBay store does have a slightly different range.

On Sale: Selected Sets On Sale At Toys R Us

Toys R US Logo 200px

After the last Toys R Us catalogue didn’t feature any LEGO I was starting to worry that we wouldn’t get any offers until their mid-year toy sale. Luckily the catalogue starting today does feature a few sets on sale.

This sale isn’t the most extensive or the biggest discounts we’ve ever seen, but there may be a few things of interest.

The sale starts today (May 31st) and runs until Saturday June 17.

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

Brisbane Airport Looking For LEGO Artist

Brisbane Airport LOGO

Do you fancy yourself a LEGO artist? Well Brisbane Airport is looking for a new resident artist and this time they are after somebody with some LEGO Building Skills.

The position is a 12-month residency where you will create LEGO artworks to be displayed at the airport. It’s not a full time job, and the amount of time that you have to spend on-site at the airport is fairly flexible.

People with experience building large scale pieces will have an advantage, particularly as the role requires somebody with their own LEGO bricks or resources that you can use.

Applications for the position close on June 15th. You can find details on how to apply at http://www.bne.com.au/corporate/about-us/community/artist-residence

I’ve included some more information from the website below…

On Sale: 20% Off At David Jones

David Jones Logo

It seems like a while since we last got a sale from David Jones, but this offer should help tide us over until the mid-year toy sales.

From today (May 27th) until June 12th 2017 David Jones are offering 20% off LEGO.

They also happen to have Big Ben and The Silent Mary listed in their website.

With some of the new sets starting to show up in stores you might also be able grab some of them.

You can view their online range here.

R2-D2 Polybag Available At Dreamworld

Dreamworld are holding their annual Stormtrooper event this weekend, and to get in on the celebrations the LEGO store will be offering the Brick-built R2-D2 polybag.

Dreamworld R2-D2 Polybag

You’ll be able to get yours from today (Saturday May 27th) when you spend $120 or more.

This offer will run as long as stock lasts so it could go quickly or run for a little while, it’s hard to know how much stock there is.

All The New Sets Coming Soon

We are only a few days away from the start of June, which means that the first wave of 2HY 2017 sets should be appearing in stores very soon.

The latest catalogue isn’t available yet, but the LEGO online store gives us a great overview of sets that we are likely to see released locally in June. You can view a full list with RRP and links at the end of this article but I’ve included a bit of a summary. Click on any of the images in the article to view a larger version.

Friends

There are two sub-themes being released and they couldn’t be more different. The first sub-theme is summery and beach inspired, with sets such as the 41317 Sunshine Catamaran.

41317

The second sub-theme is a wintery getaway for the girls of Heartlake City. The 41324 Snow Resort Ski Lift looks particularly interesting.

41324

Not related to either of those sub-themes is 41318 Heartlake Hospital, which is likely to be popular.

41318

City

An interesting mix of sets on offer. There are some stand-alone sets like the 60154 Bus Station set but the majority of the sets fall into the two sub-themes…

60154

Coastguard

60167

Jungle

60161

I think the Jungle sets look great and a lot of people are going to want the various big cats on offer.

There is also a follow-up to the fun in the park set – 60153 Fun at The Beach.

60153
