Dreamworld LEGO Store To Offer BB-8 Polybag on Star Wars Day

In an interesting development I have learned that the Dreamworld LEGO store will be offering the same May The 4th promotion as the online LEGO store.

What exactly is that promotion? Well if you spend over the set amount (I’ve heard it’s $120 at Dreamworld but haven’t been able to confirm) you’ll receive this adorable little BB-8 Polybag.

The store has also indicated that they will have the UCS Y-Wing available for purchase too.

Having the same promotion at the same time as online is a first for the store. It’s definitely a good option if you are in the area and wanting a Y-Wing. Stock will be limited so may not last all day.

Thanks to Jeremy from RebelScum for sharing this with me.

Review: Incredibles 2 Juniors Mega Review

This year is a big one for a certain Disney owned superhero franchise. No I’m not talking about the MCU and Infinity War, I’m talking about The Incredibles 2 – one of the most highly anticipated Pixar sequels.

The film itself won’t be out until June 14th but the film’s tie-in LEGO sets are out now. Thanks to LEGO I will be taking a look at all 3 sets.

LEGO Juniors Incredibles 2 Family

Seeing as these are Juniors sets I am going to review all three sets in this mega review. Each set will have a separate heading so you can scroll down to one of you aren’t interested in all of them.

As these are Juniors sets I won’t be going in to as much depth as my larger set reviews but I’ll still cover the important stuff for each set.

It’s going to be a little hard to compare the sets to the film with it not out for over a month, so some guess work might be needed.

On Sale: 10% Off At eBay

eBay 200

The good people over at eBay sent out a code today for 10% off everything.

You’ll need to spend a minimum of $50 to qualify for the offer and there is a maximum discount of $100 per transaction.

To get your discount enter the code PAYBACK at checkout.

The offer ends at 11:59 PM AEST on April 30th.

Head over to eBay and have a look around.

This offer pairs nicely with the 20% off prices already listed on the Target eBay store. Combined you’ll get 28% off. It’s not quite as good as Myer’s double up offer but still quite a high percentage off. View the Target eBay LEGO range here.

Thanks to Jason for reminding me about this.

Official Details of 10261 Roller Coaster

First LEGO introduced an Amusement Park sub-theme for their Creator Expert line then they introduced a whole new track system in late 2017. Everybody put two and two together and realised it was only a matter of time before we got a roller coaster. Well here it is, and it’s incredible.

10261_Prod

I am absolutely blown away by this set. The product picture alone doesn’t do justice to how massive it is (seriously, check out the video below). The set comes in at 4124 pieces and comes with 11 minifigures.

No Australian RRP at this stage but I am guessing it will be around $499.99, based on the international prices. The set will be released for VIPs on May 16th, with a general release on June 1st.

Update: Australian price confirmed as $499.99.
Coaster AU price

The roller coaster features a working mechanism that can optionally be powered by a power functions motor. The press release also mentions that you can integrate LEGO Boost in to the model, but not much detail is provided about that.

You get two sets of 3 carts, with a switchable section of rail so you can keep one set out of the way. All of the carts feature lap bars for an even more realistic look.

Beyond the track itself there are also lots of other elements such as a brick built Coaster sign, fairy floss cart and ticket booth.

LEGO sent out the press release with just two images but there were also two videos. I have combined them in to a single video that you can check out below. Seeing this in actually really helps sell how impressive it is.

Check out the box shot and press release below.

On Sale: 20% Off At Myer’s eBay Store

Myer eBay 200

We have a new eBay code, this time just for Myer.

If you enter the code PICKMYER at checkout you will get 20% off your order, and this seems to stack with the few items that are already discounted in their eBay store.

As this is a code offer and not a regular discount you won’t be able to add any extra eBay codes for further discounts. This code is set to expire April 30th.

Unikitty Gets Her Own Theme, Including Unfeelable Bags

One of the most fun characters from the original LEGO Movie was Princess Unikitty. A character who now has her own Cartoon Network show, and now a LEGO theme to go with it.

The sets are very strange looking but they seem to match the aesthetic of the show quite well. Generally they aren’t something that I can see myself buying, but I don’t have any issue with them existing.

The Collectible Unikitty Series though is absolutely terrible and I am not a fan at all. Why? Because from the initial pictures none of the blind bags contain unique elements. Feeling out the one you want is going to be impossible. You can distinguish between the Unikitty and Puppycorn ones but that’s it.

41775 Collectable Unikitty Series 1

I don’t like the idea of a child ending up with 10 of the same Unikitty. The Collectable Minifigures already walked a fine line but I think this takes the concept too far.

You can see the rest of the sets below.

On Sale: 25% Off At David Jones

On Sale: 20% Off Two or More Items At Myer

Myer Logo Generic 200px

I think this offer actually started a little while ago but it seems that I missed it.

Myer is currently offering 20% off most LEGO if you buy two or more items. I am not sure if this offer is online only but I have heard rumours that there is a different offer running in-store.

The sale runs until 11:59pm AEDT on April 24th.

There are a few exclusions to mention: Jurassic World toys, Han Solo Star Wars Toys and Lego Creator Expert. Basically the three most popular categories at the moment.

This weekend (April 21st & 22nd) the Penrith Panthers Pavilion will be taken over by a huge collection of LEGO creations.

Sydney Brick Show 2018 Banner

Each year the organisers endeavour to bring fresh ideas for the enjoyment of patrons and this year there are quite a few! Highlights include interactive displays, a free build area, the famous graffiti wall and a giant Ninjago spinner. Don’t miss a world record attempt at the most minifig habitats (over 1200 on display) as well as the gigantic space colony ”GALACTIC FRONTIER” where the rare ”LEGOTONIUM” is mined.

Monies raised at the Sydney Brick Show 2018 will be used to provide support to Nepean Area Disabilities Organisation (NADO). NADO is a community-based charity that supports people with disabilities, their families and carers in Western Sydney, including the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains, Penrith suburbs and surrounding areas.

Tickets are $19.10 for adults and $14.00 for juniors (4-16 years). Unfortunately there is also a $5.25 handling fee per transaction. You can get your tickets here.
