On Sale: Target Ultra Agents And LEGO Movie Clearance

While we frantically refresh the Target website hoping for a good School Holiday offer, we do have an offer to share.

Target have slashed the online prices of the Ultra Agents and LEGO Movie sets by 30%

Target Ultra Agents LEGO Movie Clearance

We already knew about the Ultra Agents sets being reduced but the addition of LEGO Movie sets is reasonably new.^

Unfortunately the sale is online only according to the email we received. It’s also a clearance offer, so stock may be limited.

You can check out the range via this link.

^ Due to some email issues last week we missed an email from Andrew about this and there was a comment from Steven on our previous post. Thanks to those readers.

2015 Set Images Surface Online – Part 1: LEGO Movie, Bionicle, DC & Speed Champions

Every year in October, LEGO fans start to wonder what the following year will have in store. We have already seen leaks with set names, but now we have pictures to go with them. Over on YouTube a user by the name of Just2Good has uploaded several videos with what appear to be official images of various 2015 sets.

Here is what we have seen so far… (Click on any image to see a larger version).

The LEGO Movie

The film may have been a 2014 release, but the tie-in sets will continue in 2015. The Double Decker Couch seems to be the standout, with a great selection of characters in what should be an affordable set.

Expressions Of Interest – Exclusive AFOL Screening Of The LEGO Movie


At Bricking Around we are extremely excited for the release of The LEGO Movie, and we think this is a great chance for LEGO fans to get together. We are currently considering organising some special adult only screenings of the film in the luxury of Gold Class. We want to know if that is something our readers would be interested in?

Gold Class screenings would cater for 30 – 40 guests, and cost between $40 – $60 per ticket depending on day, time and any food and drink packages. We have created a survey below to get some feedback on the idea.

Almost Everybody Loves The LEGO Movie


The LEGO Movie is officially released in the US tomorrow, and the reviews are starting to come in. According to review aggregate site Rotten Tomatoes the film is looking like a hit.

Currently, with 32 Critic reviews recorded there are 31 positive reviews and just a single negative one.

Warning: As Joel points out in the comments the negative review mentioned contains spoilers for the end of the movie. It’s going to be a tough two months folks.

With the official release of the movie there are going to be a lot of reviews coming out. We wish you the best of luck staying spoiler free until the Australian release in April.
