BrisBricks Pine Rivers 2017 This Weekend

I think Brisbane LEGO fans are some of the luckiest, with multiple different shows to attend every year. One of those events just happens to be taking place this weekend - BrisBricks Pine Rivers 2017.

The show returns to the Strathpine Community Centre for two days of fantastic LEGO displays. There will also be Star Wars characters thanks to the 501st Redback Garrison. Those of you looking for some LEGO to take home will be able to get new and old sets as well as third party accessories.

Tickets are $8 for adults (16+) and $4 for children aged 3 to 15. Children under 3 are free. You’ll need to buy your tickets in advance from TryBooking as they aren’t available at the door.

The show runs from 9am to 5pm on Saturday, and from 9am to 4pm on Sunday. The first session on Sunday is a special session for the Autism Community.

You can learn more about the event via the event page below or Facebook.

Myer have just gone live with a new offer that is running both online and in-store.

From today (June 7th) until Monday June 12th you can get 20% off LEGO when you buy two or more items.

The qualifier of having to buy two sets is a little annoying but it shouldn’t be too hard to meet that.

Unfortunately there are a few exclusions: any clearance items, the Death Star, all Creator Expert sets and minifigures.

Australian Price For 21310 Old Fishing Store

The product page for 21310 Old Fishing Store is now up on LEGO’s Australian store, which means we now that the Australian RRP will be $249.99.

Old Fishing Store Australian RRP

How does the price compare to your expectations? It seems quite high for a LEGO Ideas set, but the part count is 2049. That works out to $0.12 per part, which is in line with other Ideas sets (the Saturn V is actually cheap at $0.09 per part).

Let me know in the comments what you think of the price and if you’ll be picking this up or not.

Will Amazon’s Arrival Change The LEGO Buying Landscape?

Amazon Logo 210

An interesting new job advertisement popped up on Seek the other day – LEGO Australia are looking for a Senior Key Account Manager. This normally wouldn’t be particularly interesting as LEGO Australia probably has a lot of account managers. What makes this position a little different is that is specifically relates to working to launch the LEGO and Amazon partnership in Australia.

We’ve known that Amazon is coming to Australia for a little while now, but this is confirmation that LEGO Australia are taking their arrival seriously and already starting work on supplying them with products.

Amazon’s arrival in Australia has got a lot of industry experts speculating about doom and gloom for local retail. As an online presence Amazon doesn’t have the same overheads, and can in theory offer better prices. They are also not above offering deep discounts to get customers to try their service.

Will Amazon become the go-to source of LEGO buying in Australia? It’s extremely difficult to predict this with any certainty but they are certainly facing a lot of challenges.

June Offer At LEGO Online: Free Krypto Saves The Day Set

The latest offer from LEGO online is now live, but I suspect it’s not going to appeal to everybody. Hopefully there will be another offer later in the month.

Teen Titans, Powerpuff Girls & Beetlejuice Coming To Dimensions

The next wave of LEGO Dimensions packs has just been announced and the lineup is an interesting mix. All 5 packs will be available September 13th 2017.

Powerpuff Girls

Originally airing from 1998 to 2005 the Powerpuff Girls are back on screens with a series reboot last year. Soon you’ll also be able to get them in your LEGO Dimensions game. Unfortunately in order to get all three girls you’ll need to buy two different packs…

Official Details of 21310 Old Fishing Store

The talk of LEGO Ideas might be the Saturn V at the moment, but there is another set that has been on it’s way for a while that looks very exciting too. After months of waiting here are the official details of 21310 Old Fishing Store

This set is absolutely full of character and charm. The designers have done a fantastic job of taking the original idea and making a just a few tweaks. This really looks like the sort of building you’d find in a coastal town.

Included are 4 minifigures, a cat, 3 seagulls and even two lobsters. The set features a total of 2,049 pieces, including plenty of sand green tiles.

You will be able to purchase this set yourself from September 1st. No Australian RRP at this stage, but I have heard rumours it could be $249.99.

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.
