On Sale: 20% Off At Myer This Weekend

Myer Super Weekend March 2015

Myer are having another Super Weekend sale, which means discounted LEGO.

On offer is 20% off the regular price of all LEGO. There doesn’t seem to be any obvious exclusions on the website.

This is a super weekend sale so it will run until 11:59 PM on Sunday October 8th. The offer is also running in-store until Sunday.

You can view the full Myer range online here.

Don’t forget to add the anniversary codes that should still be valid. The codes are ANNIVERSARY10 for $10 off when you spend $60 or more, ANNIVERSARY15 for $15 off when you spend $80 or more and ANNIVERSARY20 for $20 off when you spend $100 or more.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us

Toys R Us are clearing out some old stock and from today (October 5th) through until Sunday October 8th they are reducing the clearance prices by a further 25%.

There are some good prices on a bit of a random mix of sets but there may just be something that you are interested in.

The website advertises this as being in-store and online but note that this is a clearance sale and items may not be available in-store at all.

This link should hopefully show the LEGO products on offer. You can see the full list of sets and the discount below.

On Sale: 20% Off At Hobby Warehouse eBay Store

eBay 200

eBay are having another sale with fairly narrow parameters, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find some LEGO on sale.

The specific offer is 20% off at selected sellers when you click and collect. To take advantage of the offer you will need to use the code PICK20UP. I have heard mixed reports about whether you actually need to select the click & collect option or not.

Having a look through the offer the only LEGO seller seems to be Hobby Warehouse. They have a fairly extensive range but be aware that some items are priced above RRP.

View their LEGO range here.

This offer runs until 23.59 (AEDT) on October 9th 2017.

Edit: I originally had the code wrong.

LEGO Looking For Giveaway Suggestions

sophia-cu-with-chat

Everybody knows that LEGO regularly have giveaways on their online store. These bonuses help tempt people to buy at RRP from the official online store. There have been some great giveaways in the past, and there have been some less great ones too.

Now LEGO is directly reaching out to the adult LEGO fan community for suggestions on future giveaways. They have asked partners like this site to find out what people want in a giveaway. I’ll collect your suggestions and then pass on the top 5. Enter your suggestion in the form below and then I will provide a poll to help finalise the top 5.

I’ll be taking suggestions until October 24th, and then from then until October 30th I will feature a poll of your suggestions.

Your suggestion can be anything that LEGO might produce – that mean no new IP and no suggestions that violate LEGO’s rules (drugs, nudity, war etc). More detail is available at the end of the article if you are still unsure.

You May Be Able To Buy A Millennium Falcon Tomorrow

Unfortunately this is one just for people in Melbourne and the Brisbane/Gold Coast area… both the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Chadstone and the Dreamworld LEGO Store have confirmed that they will have stock of the 75192 Millennium Falcon set tomorrow.

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne

The store’s Facebook page has confirmed that they will have 45 of the sets available with a limit of 1 per person. Stock is first in first served.

The store will be opening early at 8:30am but chances are you will need to line up early.

Dreamworld LEGO Store

The store manager has confirmed that they will have “more than 45″ units available when the doors open at 9am tomorrow.

They will also have a limit of 1 per person and first in first served.

Remember the store is separate from the park.

Both of these options are likely to be extremely popular. Good luck to those of you who are trying to get your hands on a set. I’d love for you to share some line pictures on the Bricking Around Facebook page if you happen to be heading to either location.

Introducing 70922 The Joker Manor

The LEGO Batman Movie lead to a heap of really interesting sets, but there was one thing that fans thought was missing – a large Wayne Manor set. Well now LEGO are finally delivering, kind off. This isn’t Wayne Manor, this is The Joker Manor.

At 3,444 pieces The Joker Manor is the largest LEGO Batman Movie set by a fair margin, and those pieces have all been put to good use to produce a set that looks amazing and perfectly captures the craziness of the Joker.

70922_Prod

The set features 10 minifigures – there is The Joker, Batman, Barbara Gordon, Harley Quinn, Nightwing and Alfred Pennyworth in Classic Batsuit. Also included are Disco Batman, Disco Joker, Disco Batgirl and Disco Robin. If you are a little confused about the Disco versions of the minifigures then this video will clear things up.

There are a lot of details included in this set including various references to scenes from the movie such as Batman microwaving his lobster dinner. Surrounding the exterior of the building is a great looking rollercoaster that appears to be built using various new elements.

The set will be released on November 24th 2017 (no VIP release for this one). I have been told the Australian RRP is $399.99.

With so much detail I suggest you check out the gallery and press release below.
