January Set Price Battle: Who’s Got The Cheapest Everyday Prices

January 2018 Price Battle

While certain retailers price their LEGO sets at RRP, there are others that try and compete with lower everyday prices. Those cheaper prices can often be better than 20% off the regular price.

I have looked around at the three majors who promote themselves as having low everyday prices; Target, Big W and Kmart. I went through the “new” category on their websites and compiled a detailed list of all the January release sets and how much they are charging. For Big W, who have a small sale on, I looked at the regular price not the sale price.

You can find all of the listings for yourself here: Kmart, Big W and Target.

Looking at the numbers it seems that Kmart is the winner with almost all of their prices lower or on par with Big W. Big W generally isn’t too far off with their pricing. Target is a clear last with a smaller online listing and the sets that are listed almost all higher than Kmart and/or Big W.

Obviously sales are going to affect these numbers, but it’s worth saving this list to check when you see a 20% off sale at Myer/David Jones/Toys R Us, as the set you want could still be cheaper elsewhere.

Here is the important information, the list with the best price for each set. If you scroll right down to the end of the article there is also a full list of prices rather than just the best ones.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Occasionally if you look closely retailers like to sneak in some LEGO discounts in their Back To School catalogues and that is exactly what Big W have done this week.

These offers barely fall under the category of sale as most are just promoting their regular price for a selection of the new 2018 sets. There are a few sets that are reduced during the catalogue period but nothing that’s going to blow you away.

The catalogue runs from today (January 18th) until January 31st.

If you want to check out the catalogue for yourself you can do so here, or see the set list below.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Big W

Big W today launch what may be their last catalogue before Christmas.

Unsurprisingly with The Last Jedi out today there are discounts on most of the new Star Wars sets. I’ve heard from multiple people that Big W are also selling the 2018 Star Wars sets, but they are not featured in the catalogue.

Beyond Star Wars there are also some discounts on some other sets – it’s a pretty mixed selection. You can view the catalogue for yourself here or see the list below.

The catalogue sale starts today (December 14th) and runs until Christmas Eve.

On Sale: 20% Off At Big W

As we slowly run out of weekends before Christmas the retailers are scrambling to get your last minute purchases to go their way. If you needed more proof of this Big W have today launched a 20% off sale on LEGO.

The sale kicked off today (December 8th) and runs until December 13th.

You can view their online LEGO range here, or I suggest heading in store. There is no special voucher needed or anything.

Extra 5% off at the Big W eBay Store

If you are happy to shop at the Big W eBay store then you may be interested to know that you can get an extra 5% off their range. Just enter the code P5OZZIE at checkout. There is a $30 minimum spend on that code though.

View their eBay range here.

Thanks to Lisa and Trevor for telling me about this earlier today.

On Sale: 20% Off At Big W (Plus Possible Extra 10%)

It is looking like this weekend could be the perfect storm of LEGO offers at Big W.

They are advertising 20% off LEGO on Saturday November 18th and Sunday November 19th. Both online and in-store.

Big W 20 percent off November 2017

With Big W’s already lower than RRP prices on most sets, a 20% off sale works out to be great value.

What might push you over the edge is that there is a supposed Family & Friends sale on too. This doesn’t appear to be advertised on the Big W website at all but the flyer (linked below) has been doing the rounds online. It could be a fake but doesn’t seem like it.

Assuming that the offers stack you should get 28% off Big W prices. This could be an expensive weekend.

For the Family and Friends sale you will need to scan the barcode or use FF10 online. The 20% off sale doesn’t require any work from you.

The latest Big W catalogue officially started yesterday and inside is a range of LEGO sets on sale.

The catalogue features an interesting mix of themes with Friends, City and Star Wars all featured.

Of particular interest at this time of the year may be the Advent calendars. $35 for either the City, Friends or Star Wars versions is a decent price.

This sale runs from yesterday (October 26th) until Wednesday November 8th. You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or see the list of sets below.

September is always a good time to buy LEGO – the combination of school holidays and a rapidly approaching Christmas always leads to some good sales.

First up is a new catalogue from Big W with a range of selected sets on sale. There are sets from various themes and the discounts are decent. You can see the full list of sets below.

The sale starts tomorrow (September 21st) and runs until October 4th.

The catalogue isn’t up on the Big W website yet but you can view it via Lasoo.

On Sale: 20% Off At Big W

It’s been a little while since we have had a general 20% off sale at Big W, but it’s becoming a bit of an August tradition.

From tomorrow (August 3rd) Big W are offering 20% off all toys including LEGO. With their regular prices already lower than RRP the actual discount can work out to almost 30% off.

The sale runs until August 16th so you have plenty of time to get the stuff you are after.

If you are looking to grab some Ninjago Movie sets it’s certainly worth waiting until tomorrow. The fantastic looking 70618 Destiny’s Bounty set comes down to just $180, or 31% off RRP. For a new release set that’s a great price.

Where To Buy The LEGO Batman Movie

The LEGO Batman Movie is officially out on home media from tomorrow. There are various different formats on offer and some retailers also offering bonuses. In the end there are a few factors what will determine your best choice.

Bonuses

Unfortunately it seems that Australia is not getting the version that comes with a Batgirl minifigure. Luckily it’s not all bad news with other offers available.

JB Hi-Fi

JB Batwing Bonus

With an version of the film you will receive a free Batwing polybag. The website is calling this a bonus minifigure but the picture clearly shows 30524 The Mini Batwing which does not include a minifigure. I have heard multiple reports that JB were selling the movie yesterday, so you may be able to get it today.

Sanity
Sanity LEGO Batman Bonus

On offer is a pre-order bonus of 30523 The Joker Battle Training, which includes a Joker minifgure and brick-built Batman training dummy (it includes a cowl but not a complete Batman). This bonus is listed as a pre-order bonus so you may want to get in contact with your local store and see if you can get hold of it.

Big W LEGO Batman Bonus

The offer from Big W is a little vague. The toy sale catalogue mentions a bonus activity set with various versions of the film, but it doesn’t specifically say what is included in the activity set. It looks like from the image that there is no LEGO included.
