I’d like to wish all Bricking Around readers a Merry Christmas.
As Santa does his work tonight I hope he brings you plenty of LEGO presents. I know I’ve got something under the tree with my name on it and a very familiar rattle.
I’ll be doing my best to track down the best Boxing Day sales, but be warned that Boxing Day has a habit of being more about clothes and homewares than toy sales.
While the big retailers get a lot of the attention, they aren’t the only ones that can reduce prices on LEGO.
Brisbane based online retailer Outer Rim Trading Co has been kind enough to share the news that they have a heap of sets on sale, some up 25% off.
The sales are spread across pretty much every category in the store, so I recommend doing some browsing.
Brisbane readers concerned about getting products in time for Christmas will be pleased to know that you can pick up your orders in-person right up until Christmas Eve.
Outer Rim Trading Co are also offering you the chance to win back the value of your order. You can read more about that here.

Merry Christmas Bricking Around readers!
To celebrate the festive season I have decided to give away a few items to lucky fans. There are two polybags I have lying around as well as a small set that I picked up on sale.
There are three prizes on offer: 31042 Super Soarer, 30278 Poe’s X-Wing Fighter and 30372 Robin’s Mini Fortrex. Three lucky winners will each receive one item.
To make sure you get plenty of chance to enter (but also get your prize before Christmas) this competition will be running until November 30th.
The pre-Christmas rush continues to heat up with another catalogue full of discounted LEGO.
The latest offering from Big W is a range of selected sets on sale. Big W prices are usually a bit lower than RRP so the final price on some of the featured sets is quite good.
The sale kicks off today (October 27th) and runs until November 9th 2016. You can check out the catalogue for yourself here or see the list of included sets below.
Toys R Us are helping out those who haven’t done their LEGO Christmas shopping yet with a catalogue full of discounted sets.
This is a selected set sale but there are over 40 sets included across a range of themes. Hopefully there will be something in there for everybody.
The sale kicked off today (October 26th) and runs until November 15th 2016.
You can check out the catalogue for yourself here, or as always view a list of included sets below.
If you needed further evidence of the rapid approach of Christmas then this offer from LEGO should do the trick. It’s not even November yet and LEGO are already offering Christmas bonuses.
From 23rd October 2016 until 20th November 2016 you will receive a free 40222 24-in-1 Christmas Builds set with orders over $120. The threshold is a little higher than some previous offers but with free shipping still set at $200 I imagine most people would be aiming for that anyway.
The 40222 24-in-1 set features parts to make 24 different Christmas inspired mini builds. It’s a great looking set and the fact that it is free is even better.
Don’t forget that the Double VIP points offer is still running until October 31st.
I’ve added some more pictures of the free set below.
