Amazon Prime Day Is Tomorrow

Amazon Australia Thumb

At midnight tonight Amazon Prime Day officially kicks off. I don’t know if there will be any LEGO related offers included in the event but good deals usually go quickly.

Consider this a friendly reminder to set aside some time to check Amazon.

If you see an awesome deal during the day feel free to share it in the comments.

Your best bet is probably to head to the Amazon home page and then follow the Amazon Prime Day links.

Of course you’ll need to have an Amazon Prime account to access Amazon Prime Day offers.

Amazon Matches or Betters Big W Sale Prices

Amazon Logo 210

In a completely shocking move Amazon has matched or bettered a lot of the Big W sale prices.

Before you head to the Big W website it is certainly worth giving Amazon a quick check. You can find the Amazon LEGO landing page here.

I’ll try and do some price round-ups later tonight.

Thanks to Matt and R.E.F for the heads up.

June 2019 Price Guide

Detective

June is always a bit of a tricky time to be a LEGO fan. We know that there are a whole heap of new sets hitting shelves but we also know that there are going to be a range of sales around the corner.

Do you wait and see what the sales are like or do you get in now in case stock runs out.

If you want some data to help you make that call I’ve done a round-up of all prices I could find for the June 2019 retail releases. These are the sets that LEGO have told me will be available now.

Big W are being a bit slack in getting these listed but that’s probably a sale thing. Kmart prices seem to be the best but they probably aren’t going lower as Kmart doesn’t really do toy sales.

You can check out the list below.

LEGO Overwatch Sets Now Available At EB Games & Zing

zing-eb

It looks like the Amazon exclusive period on the Overwatch sets has come to an end.

Both EB Games and Zing Pop Culture stores are now selling the full range of Overwatch sets.

This is a good option for anybody looking to buy in-store, or anybody who just doesn’t want to give Jeff Bezos more money.

You can find the various products here; ZingEB Games

Amazon Has The New Fire Station For Nearly Half Price

Amazon Australia has the newest Fire Station set (60215) listed at a crazy cheap price.

Update: Looks like it’s already gone.

With an RRP of $99.99 the Amazon price is nearly 50% off.

Check out the listing here.

Thanks to Niklas for the info.

Overwatch Sets Now Listed At Amazon

overwatch-amazon-thumb

If you were hanging out for the retail release of the Overwatch sets then you may have had mixed feelings about the news that they were going to be Amazon exclusives.

If you are still hanging out for these sets then you will be pleased to know that the full range is now listed on the Amazon Australia site.

Prices are, as expected, RRP or near enough to that. There’s a minor discount on the Bastion and Watchpoint sets.

I’ve included handy direct links to each set below.

Overwatch Sets Confirmed As Amazon Exclusives

overwatch-amazon-thumb

The Overwatch theme was completely missing from the Australian catalogue, which meant one of two things – either they weren’t going to be released here at all, or they were going to be a retailer exclusive.

I have today received confirmation that these sets will be exclusive to Amazon Australia, with a February release.

This is probably a blow for anybody hoping to get these sets on sale. While Amazon does have some great sales, they very rarely include exclusives.

There are no listings for these sets on Amazon yet but I’ll be checking back at the start of February to see when they get listed.

Boxing Day Sale: Cheap Ninjago City Docks From Target or Amazon

boxing-day-sales

Target’s Boxing Day offer is quite narrow – they are offering Ninjago City Docks for $199 in an online only offer.

It’s a great price for a really fantastic set. If you’ve got some Christmas money already burning a hole in your pocket then this is a tempting buy.

You can find the Target product page here.

In a blatant attempt to steal the thunder from Target, Amazon have already matched the Target price on this set and are offering it for $199 too. If you are looking for something else from Amazon’s Boxing Day sale then it makes sense to do your shopping in one place. Also handy if the Target offer sells out.

You can find the Amazon listing here.

Boxing Day Sale: Selected Sets On Sale At Amazon

boxing-day-sales

Amazon are getting in on the Boxing Day action early with a range of sets for 20% off their normal price.

I say normal price rather than RRP because a lot of the Amazon prices were already matched to other retailers, which means the 20% off works out to be a pretty great price.

There’s a fairly broad range of sets included so it’s probably best if you go check out the full listing.

You can view the offer for yourself here.

Amazon’s Cyber Monday Deals

Can your credit cards take any further punishment? It’s Cyber Monday today and Amazon have new deals rolling out throughout the day. They aren’t the most amazing but there are a couple of LEGO sets included.
