We’ve included a breakdown of the prices for each item in the new wave. Pricing is based on the existing range from each retailer (except Big W and EB who have these new items listed).

Places are limited and the event is only running at the following Myer stores: Melbourne, Sydney, Macquarie, Southland, Perth, Morley, Adelaide, Tea Tree Plaza, Brisbane, Carindale and Hobart.

On Sale: Selected Sets, Ninjago And Duplo On Sale At Target

Target 200x200

It looks like we were wrong earlier about Target not having a sale for the School Holidays. Thanks to Susan on Facebook we have learned that the Target catalogue is now up on the website.

We’ve quickly gone through the deals and compiled a list of the sets below.

This sale runs from Thursday September 17th through until Sunday October 4th.

The catalogue features the Ultra Agents and LEGO Movie sets which were already on sale online, plus some Friends and Elves sets. There is also 20% off Ninjago and Duplo.

Book Review: Ninjago – Build Your Own Adventure

Ninjago Cover Small

RRP $39.99
Available from most retailers

The Book

The Ninjago Build Your Own Adventure book is a new entry from DK books. Unlike older books that featured a selection of bricks, this title features a single set (and minifigure) with the book serving as inspiration for future building.

I suspect that there is going to be a mixed response to the format – some young LEGO fans might find it frustrating that they can’t build everything that they see in the book. It’s important to go into the book knowing what it is.

The book opens with the instructions for the included set. I liked that this is the opening of the book rather than stuck at the back as an add-on.

Once your model is built, you are greeted with a few pages of introduction. There are profiles of the Ninjago characters, and nice explanation of how the book works.

I really liked the included pages that explain the different types of parts that LEGO produce. It’s a great visual introduction to things like the difference between plates and tiles.

Australian Price For 70751 Temple of Airjitzu

Bricking Around has compiled a database of all the 2015 LEGO sets, and we use that to regularly check for prices for new sets. While doing one of our regular checks we spotted something new – the official Australian price for 70751 Temple of Airjitzu.

This impressive Ninjago set will cost Australian LEGO fans $299.99 when it becomes available in September (August for VIPs).

This price is exactly what we predicted when the set was first unveiled.

What do you think of the price? Hopefully this set will make it to an Australian retailer and we can score it for 20% off.

70751 Temple of Airjitzu Officially Announced

Since it’s launch Ninjago has proven to be a popular theme with the target audience. When the theme (and related cartoon) was set to end in 2013, there was a huge outcry from fans that saw a reboot in 2014.

The sets have always had limited appeal to the adult LEGO community but that may just change with this new set – introducing 70751 Temple of Airjitzu.

70751 Temple of Airjitzu 01

The Temple of Airjitzu features an impressive 12 minifigures to go along with the beautifully designed buildings. This is definitely the largest and most detailed Ninjago set to date.

With a US RRP of $199.99 this set will probably cost at least $299.99 in Australia. The US$199.99 set 60052 Cargo Train costs Australians $299.99, so that seems to be a reasonable estimate. As soon as we have an official Australian RRP we will be sure to share it.

The set should be available online to VIPs mid-August and everyone else 1st September.
