Update On New LEGO Movie Sets From Amazon

If you needed further proof that Bricking Around readers are some of the best LEGO fans in Australia (we didn’t) then we bring you some great news from one of our readers.

Flumpf has posted a comment on our original article about the new LEGO Movie sets. As you may recall 70815 Super Secret Police Dropship would not ship to Australia. Well Flumpf got in touch with Amazon and they have corrected the issue.

That’s right, thanks to the work of Flumpf you can now get all three of these new sets from Amazon. We have run through the figures on these and included them below. You can get all three sets shipped to Australia for $328.72; around 8% off the Australian RRP.

If you can wait until for a 20% off sale after August, then you could pick them all up for $287.97 AU, which is $40 less than Amazon.

All prices based on standard Amazon shipping option to Brisbane address and Amazon currency conversion option.

The New LEGO Movie Sets Available For Pre-Order From Amazon

The US Amazon site has opened up pre-orders for the new LEGO Movie sets, and it looks like they work out slightly cheaper than the Australian RRP (even after shipping). Amazon has these listed as available June 1, 2014, and according to the Toys ‘R’ Us store that we spoke to these won’t be available in Australia until August. If you simply can’t wait for that Classic Space charm of Benny’s Spaceship then this might be a good option.

These prices do work out cheaper than the Australian RRP, but the best price would be picking these up during a 20% off sale in Australia.

It appears that the US Amazon site is starting to ship more items to Australian customers.

The process is still a bit of a hit and miss, with no easy way to check whether an item can be shipped to Australia but there are savings to be had. The LEGO 10221 Super Star Destroyer set featured here is selling for $699 at the Australian online LEGO store, but you can get it delivered from Amazon.com for around $530 Australian dollars.
