On Sale: 20% Off Selected eBay Listings

eBay 200

eBay has rolled out a new code for 20% off toys. The catch is that it only applies to a handful of selected sellers.

There is of course still LEGO on sale, so it’s worth a look.

As always with these sort of sales be aware of price jacking and make sure that the 20% off price you get is a good deal.

To get your discount enter PLUTO at checkout. The offer ends July 8th and can only be used for 5 transactions (maximum of 10 items per transaction). Maximum discount is $300 per transaction.

View the included items here.

Thanks to everybody who emailed me about this.

The online LEGO store isn’t known for it’s amazing and frequent sales, but they do actually have a few sets on sale at the moment. You can check out the full range here but the standout is probably Welcome to Apocalypseburg! for 20% off. With the added bonus of double VIP points it’s a good deal.

LEGO Buys Back LEGOLAND, Kind Of

An interesting development occoured over the weekend with news that LEGO was buying back LEGOLAND.

What’s going on? Well a consortium on investment companies is buying Merlin Entertainments PLC – the company that currently owns and operates LEGOLAND and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre attractions around the world.

That may not sound like it involves LEGO but one part of the “consortium” is KIRKBI Invest A/S, which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of KIRKBI A/S, the ultimate owner of the LEGO brand.


It’s all very confusing if you aren’t a corporate lawyer and what impact this will have on the parks is still a lot of guesswork. I think it’s a fair assumption to make that LEGO wouldn’t be getting involved in a deal for LEGOLAND if they weren’t interested in having a say over the direction of the parks.

The other parties in the consortium don’t seem like they’d have a lot of interest in the day to day stuff of LEGOLAND. They comprise of Blackstone and Canada Pension Plan Investment Board.

Obviously the Merlin Entertainment PLC company owns more than just the LEGOLAND attractions. Merlin operates over 130 attractions, 19 hotels and seven holiday villages in 25 countries and across four continents. LEGO now kind of owns the Sydney Aquarium for example.

I think this is one that we will all need to watch closely.

On Sale: 25% Off At David Jones

David Jones Logo

It looks like David Jones are making a pretty strong pitch to get your end of financial year dollars.

On offer is 25% off all LEGO, with no exclusions.

The sale ends at midnight AEST tonight.

UPDATE: Sorry everybody – it seems that David Jones didn’t intend for LEGO to be on sale and they took down the offer during the day.

You can find their LEGO range here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer

The Myer toy sale is currently on and unfortunately there was a lot of stuff that wasn’t included. Well don’t worry because somebody at Myer has decided to have another sale.


That’s right as part of their end of financial year sale you can get 20% off most LEGO. There are of course some exceptions still: Creator Expert, Ideas and 71043 Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle. It’s not quite as extensive as Myer’s usual exclusion list.

The sale runs from today (June 27th) until Sunday June 30th.

You can check out the LEGO range here.

On Sale: 20% Off At Target

Target 200x200

Target has been quiet in the Toy Sale battle so far – because they don’t really do a big toy sale any more. But with the school holidays happening they just couldn’t stay out of the fight completely.

From tomorrow (June 27th) until July 17th you can get 20% off all LEGO. With some regular prices at Target below RRP it’s worth checking out.

The catalogue also features a range of sets highlighted. Some appear to be more than the advertised 20% off. You can check out that list below.

Exclusive Offer: Get 10% Off At Game of Bricks

If you are looking to add some illumination to your LEGO builds then this may be an offer that you want to check out.


The team at Game of Bricks contacted me about their range of LEGO lighting kits. While their website is based in Europe with Euro pricing they do offer free shipping to Australia. Even after conversion their prices seem to be a little better than other lighting kit offerings.

To further tempt you I have got them to set up a special promotional code for Bricking Around readers. Enter the code BRICKINGAROUND10 at checkout to get 10% off your order.

Adding lighting to a LEGO model can really add to the overall look of it. Their range seems to cover a lot of the larger models, but also has some kits for smaller sets.

You can check out their range for yourself here.

This is not a paid promotion. I get nothing out of this, I just thought it was worth checking out – which is why I organised the discount code.

On Sale: 20% Off At David Jones

David Jones Logo

With all the craziness of mid-year catalogue sales it can be good to get something that is nice and simple.

David Jones are offering 20% off all LEGO until June 23rd. That’s it – no minimum spend, no exclusions. Just a flat 20% off.

As always with a David Jones sale you won’t see the discount until an item is in your cart.

You can check out their LEGO range here.

T. Rex Rampage Now Available For VIPs

I know that this set was very polarising but if you happen to be one of the people who love the look of it then you may be interested to know that it’s available now for VIPs.


To order this set head here and make sure you are logged in to your VIP account. It’ll set you back $399.99 here in Australia.

Hopefully stock doesn’t go too quickly.

Let me know in the comments if you are grabbing one of these.

On Sale: 10% – 15% Off At eBay

eBay 200

eBay is back with a new code at the perfect time.

On offer is 10% off or an impressive 15% off for eBay Plus members.

This code isn’t valid on all items and only runs for a limited time (June 20th at the latest) so I suggest checking it out sooner rather than later.

To get your discount you’ll need to enter the code PLINK at checkout and spend over $120. The code can be used a total of 4 times.

This offer should stack nicely with some of the Big W and Myer sales;
