Free Party Banana From LEGO Online

A new promotion launched on the Australian online LEGO store a few days ago and it’s a bit of a strange one.

Spend over $45 and you’ll receive a free Party Banana minifigure.

The Party Banana comes with a banana suit minifigure, a wonderfully decorated boombox and a display box.

The offer is running until July 29th, so will hopefully be a nice bonus for anybody grabbing Voltron on July 23rd.

This is an online promotion and not available at LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne or the Dreamworld Certified Store.

You can find the online listings here: City, Duplo, Friends.

Toys R Us Closing Down Sale Increases To 20% Off

Toys R US Logo 200px

Toys R Us (or to be more specific, the administrators of Toys R Us) have sent out an email this morning to announce that in-store discounts are now 20-40% off everything.

Based on the LEGO discounts they were offering so far, I am going to assume that the LEGO will be part of the 20% off.

Today is also an important day for anybody with an outstanding lay-by or gift card. Both need to be finalised by the end of today.

To use your gift card you will need to spend an additional equivalent amount (i.e. to utilise a $100 gift card, the value of the transaction must be at least $200). 

For lay-bys; the Administrators will complete sales under a lay-by if the outstanding balance is paid, subject to stock availability. If for some reason the stock is not available then the money you have paid can be used following the same rules as a gift card (i.e. to utilise a $100 worth of lay-by credit, the value of the transaction must be at least $200).

Remember that this is a closing down sale and the staff in stores are not the ones responsible for setting prices or policies.

LEGO Teases James Bond Aston Martin Set

LEGO has been sending out a lot of not particularly subtle teasers for a new set.

Here’s what we know – It’s a James Bond themed Aston Martin DB5 Creator Expert set (a Facebook post from the Budapest LEGO Certified Store revealed it was a DB5).

lego-aston-martin-db5-teaser-007

We don’t yet know what it is going go look like, how many parts it will have, how much it will cost or when it comes out. The teasers seem to be ramping up so hopefully information will be released soon.

Are you keen for this set? Personally, I am not really a car person or a huge Bond fan. The set still has the potential to be a great model though.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

eBay is back with another site-wide offer.

From today (July 2nd) until 11:59 PM July 8th you can get 10% off purchases over $50.

To get the discount enter code PLATYPUS at checkout.

There are a few catches though – you can only use the code twice and the maximum discount per transaction is $100.

As this is a site-wide offer you can head over to eBay now, but you may want to start with Target. The 10% discount should stack nicely with their current 20% off. You can view the Target eBay range here.

Taj Mahal Half Price At Myer

fc15f2c5-c34b-4f8f-8d6c-f4d93684ca38

Have you had your eye on the Creator Expert Taj Mahal? Well this offer could be too good to refuse.

Myer currently has 10256 Creator Expert Taj Mahal for $249, which is half it’s original price.

I have heard this is a one day offer so you may want to get in quick.

You can view the product page here.

Double VIP Point Offer Now Active

Double VIP Thumb New

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the new financial year than with a Double VIP point offer from the Australian online LEGO store.

From today (June 30th) until July 7th you will receive double VIP points on all orders.

Double VIP point periods are always a great time to pick up something that you can’t find in stores.

Maybe this will get you over the line for a 42083 Bugatti Chiron, or perhaps it means a 10261 Roller Coaster or even a 75181 Y-Wing Starfighter.

Of course, you could also opt for something that we may never see in stores here, like a Hot Dog Guy plush.

On Sale: 25% Off At Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

Myer are back with an offer even better than their last Super Weekend.

They are now offering 25% off LEGO until Sunday July 1st.

A few people have already spotted some of the July releases (City, Friends, Ninjago) in Myer stores around the country so this could work out well for anybody after some of those.

Unfortunately there are some exclusions: clearance, hot price items, Creator Expert, Ideas, 75192 Millennium Falcon and 75159 Death Star.

You can view their online range here or head in store.

You can also get 5% extra off the discounted prices via the Myer eBay store. Use the code PULL5 at checkout.View their eBay range here.

21311 Voltron Officially Announced

It feels like a lifetime ago that the LEGO Ideas Voltron project passed review. Now, finally, the final set is due to be released.

Introducing 21311 Voltron

21311_prod

Coming in at 2,321 pieces this is the biggest buildable LEGO mech ever.

Of course Voltron isn’t just a big mech, Voltron is comprised of 5 lions, each of which is fully recreated here. That’s right – you build all 5 lions and then combine them just like you’d hope for with a Voltron set.

21311_box5_v39

As well the lions you also get Voltron’s sword and shield.

I admit that I am not overly familiar with the IP but I think this looks great. I’m tempted to catch up on the Netflix series now.

The set will be released to VIPs on Monday 23rd July. For everybody else it will go on sale August 1st. The Australian RRP is $289.99.

Check out the full gallery and press release below.
