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%
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.
^ 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.
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.
70817 Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack
70818 Double-Decker Couch
As part of a promotion to celebrate the release of The LEGO Movie on DVD and Blu-ray in Australia the Channel 7 news program Sunday Night is running a competition that we think will be popular with our readers.
One lucky winner (plus three guests) will be flown to Sydney and receive a two hour exclusive behind the scenes tour of Animal Logic at Fox Studios (the animation team behind The LEGO Movie).
There are also 50 LEGO Movie prize packs to give away. The packs include The LEGO movie on DVD , The LEGO Movie Welcome pack, The LEGO Movie Emmet key ring, Pyjama Emmet Minifigure and The LEGO Movie Awesome Adventures book.
To enter you have to upload a photo of your best LEGO creation. We think our readers have a good chance of coming out on top.

The LEGO Movie sets have now started showing up in stores, and that includes online retailers.
Shop For Me are currently selling all of their LEGO Movie sets for 20% off.
They are also offering an Everything Is Awesome Pack, which features all 12 of the currently available sets as well as a free Emmett keyring. If you are looking at getting all of the LEGO Movie sets this looks like a good deal (and is also currently 20% off).
LEGO has used the New York Toy Fair as an opportunity to officially announce the next LEGO Movie set – 70810 MetalBeard’s Sea Cow. We had previously seen some leaked images of this set, but we now have official images and a design video. This is one seriously impressive ship.
The set is scheduled for release in March.
No Australian price yet, but we have made some enquiries. Our prediction for an Australian price is $359.99

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.
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.
