Updated Exclusivity Information For April

Detective

I have been in touch with LEGO this morning and they were kind enough to send through a bit of an update on retailer exclusivity for some new sets. This list should help you plan out some of your purchases.

There are a heap of new BrickHeadz out – Go Brick Me, Infinity War, Solo, Jurassic World and The Incredibles II. All of these are exclusive to Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores. They are all April releases so should be out by the end of the month.

The latest modular 10260 Downtown Diner is hitting Myer this April. Hopefully it arrives when there is a 20% off or better sale.

21313 Ship in A Bottle should be easier to find as it is coming to Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores in May.

Jurassic World will have a $99.99 exclusive T-Rex Transport set coming to Toys R Us later this month too.

New Star Wars buildable versions of Han Solo, Range Trooper and Darth Maul will be available from Myer, David Jones and Specialty toy stores in April.

You can see the full list here. If you don’t see something on the list it is either on the earlier version, yet to be determined or general release.

Your Exclusivity Guide For 1HY 2018

Detective

Every year there are certain sets that are exclusive to certain retailers. Usually tracking down who is stocking what is a bit of a pain but with help from LEGO I have been able to get all of that information and collated it into an easy to read table that you’ll find at the end of the article. Here is a bit of an overview first….

The list consists of some new 2018 sets as well as sets launched previously that either have new or continued exclusivity. However note that this list doesn’t cover LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne or Dreamworld as those stores have access to the full product range.

The Architecture sets will be exclusive to Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores for at least the first half of 2018. This includes the new Shanghai set.

The LEGO Batman Movie set The Bat-Dune Buggy is not listed as specific to a particular retailer but is listed as being exclusive to the first half of the year, which seems to indicate that it won’t be available in the second half of the year.

Disney Castle continues to be exclusive to LEGO Brand retail (Dreamworld and LEGOLAND Discovery Centre).

The new 2018 City set Mountain River Heist is a Toys R Us Exclusive.

Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores will be stocking the Taj Mahal set in the first half of 2018 but there is no set date specified.

Moana’s Ocean Voyage becomes a Kmart exclusive.

One of the biggest surprises to me on the list was two Amazon exclusives – the Ghostbusters HQ will be moving from Big W to Amazon and it will be joined by the Slave 1.

The 2018 Star Wars range features some exclusives too – the buildable Darth Vader and Boba Fett sets are both exclusive to Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores. Mos Eisley Cantina will be a Toys R Us exclusive while the Sandspeeder will only be coming to Toyworld stores.

Ninjago City is listed as a Toys R Us exclusive but no concrete date is given but as this is a 1HY list it hopefully will show up sooner rather than later.

The BrickHeadz, which aren’t in the retail catalogue, were not in the list so exclusivity on those is still unconfirmed.

Update: Just to clarify: This list is not every set that will be coming out in the first half of the year. There are still unannounced sets, sets that were recently announced (e.g. Ship in a Bottle) and sets where exclusivity hasn’t been decided. I will be doing my best to keep on top of this information as it becomes available.

You can see the full list below.
