Everything else should be 25% off. This is a one day only sale so discount prices will be valid until 11:59 PM AEST.

2018 Toy Sales – All The Deals From Big W

Toy Sale Retailer Big W

Period: June 21 – July 11 2018

Big Ticket Items: Hulkbuster

Christmas Lay-by: Yes

View catalogue

After pictures of their 2018 Toy Sale catalogue started showing up on various sites Big W have surprisingly pulled the trigger today and released the actual catalogue online for everybody.

There are 80 sets featured and it’s a very broad mix of themes.

The big new exclusive for this year is 76105 The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition, which may not have the same level of impact as previous years exclusives but it is still something that you won’t find at every retailer.

Once again in 2018 Big W is doing a 10% price beat offer. If you find a lower advertised price on a product Big W will beat it by 10%. The catch is that you can only match in-store prices, so no Amazon matching.

You can view the full list of sale sets below. The table is searchable and sortable.

Note that these lists are always based on RRP rather than Big W’s regular pricing. The discounts may be different from what the catalogue says.

Warning: Possible Disruptions

Just wanted to give a quick warning that Bricking Around will be moving to a new web host over the next few days. Hopefully everything will transfer across but there may be issues. Be sure to keep an eye on the Bricking Around Facebook page for updates on any issues.

New Customers Can Get $20 Off At Amazon Australia

Amazon Australia Thumb

I just managed to get myself a great deal and wanted to share the details with you.

Thanks to a tip from a friend I managed to get a 31084 Pirate Roller Coaster for $69 delivered.

How? Amazon has lowered the price of the set to match Kmart at $89, and new customers can get a $20 credit by using the code AMAZON20.

The code will only work if you spend more than $79 and haven’t purchased from Amazon before. If you have been thinking about trying them out then $20 is a good incentive.

It certainly seems that Amazon is starting to be a bit more aggressive with pricing, for example lowering prices to match other retailers. I know I’ll be checking them out more often from now. They have good prices on 42078 Mack Anthem and 17101 Boost Creative Toolbox at the moment.

You can see the full range sold by Amazon Australia here.

Your First Look At The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

The LEGO Movie Facebook page has just shared this first look at the highly anticipated LEGO Movie sequel.

The poster for the film has also been revealed.

What do you think so far? I’m liking the post-apocalyptic setting. That could lead to some interesting sets.

2HY 2018 Catalogue Cover

The latest LEGO Catalogue is out, which means we now have an official source on the release schedule for the the second half of 2018′s sets.

July is also the month for new Friends sets. The 2HY 2018 Friends range focuses primarily on the racing sub-theme but there are also some interesting sets like 41346 Friendship Box or 41347 Heartlake City Resort.

Lastly for July is new Ninjago sets. Some great looking sets including 70652 Stormbringer that can be integrated with Boost.
