R2-D2 Polybag Available At Dreamworld

Dreamworld are holding their annual Stormtrooper event this weekend, and to get in on the celebrations the LEGO store will be offering the Brick-built R2-D2 polybag.

Dreamworld R2-D2 Polybag

You’ll be able to get yours from today (Saturday May 27th) when you spend $120 or more.

This offer will run as long as stock lasts so it could go quickly or run for a little while, it’s hard to know how much stock there is.

Competition: Polybag Giveaway

Woolworths stores are currently stocking a range of polybags but they seem to be a bit hard to track down.

To help out a little I didn’t just get myself two polybags from my local store – I got 4 so that I could share the polybag fun with you all. There are two polybags on offer – one 30400 Gymnastics Bar and one 30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat set.

The first name drawn will get first pick, and the second name drawn will receive the other set.

How do you enter? Rather than just entering your name, I’ve decided for this competition you’ll have to do a little work. I have reviewed both of the polybags on offer. Read each review and then answer two questions to go in the draw.

Review: 30400 Gymnastics Bar

I make no secret of the fact that I am a big LEGO Friends fan. The sets are almost always well designed and I actually don’t have a problem with the Minidolls.

When my local Woolworths finally got in the polybag range they are now offering this was the first set I grabbed.

This set contains a relatively small part count of just 26 elements, as well as a single minidoll.

The included minidoll is Naomi – who is not one of the main LEGO Friends characters. It’s nice to expand my Heartlake City citizen collection, but some buyers may be disappointed that it doesn’t include a more well-known character. Despite this the minidoll is great. Naomi features blue eyes, a freckled face and dark brown hair. She is presented here wearing a great green spotted top and purple shorts. Overall it’s a really nice minidoll.

Review: 30426 Stealthy Swamp Airboat

I am not the biggest Ninjago fan but while looking at the available polybags at my local Woolworths, this set caught my eye.

This 2017 polybag set contains 40 parts and a single minifigure.

The set includes a Cole minifigure, as he appears in the 2017 lineup. His torso is dark bluish grey with extensive black and brown printing on the front and rear. The print is quite detailed and features a robe and rope pattern. This pattern continues on to the legs which have front printing. The arms provide a nice contrast in black.

May Issue of K-Zone Magazine Features Free LEGO U-Wing

The May issue of kids magazine K-Zone is out now and like some previous issue this one comes with a bonus polybag. The 30496 U-Wing set is a scaled down version of the 75155 set from Rogue One.

Kzone May 2017 Free U-wing

At 55 pieces this is a great little build. The magazine itself may not be of much interest to the AFOL community but for around $6 it’s worth getting just for the LEGO.

The magazine is available from Coles, Woolworths and Newsagents.

Thanks to Aidan for reminding me this was out.

On Sale: Selected Sets Reduced At Toys R Us [Plus Batman Bonus]

As Easter approaches we have even more sales coming out.

This offer from Toys R Us features a fairly wide variety of sets on sale. The range of $29.99 sets down to just $19.99 are fairly tempting.

The sale kicks off today (April 5th) and runs for two weeks (through to April 18th 2017). You can view the catalogue for yourself here, or as always with selected sets sales you can see a list below.

They are also offering a bonus polybag 30523 The Joker Battle Training with purchases over $50. Unfortunately their LEGO Batman Movie sets are barely on sale (about a 10% discount on some). Unless you really, really want that particular polybag I would suggest going to Myer and getting 20% off and their bonus polybag.

Free 30278 Poe’s X-Wing With K-Zone Magazine

The latest K-Zone magazine has hit stores and just like last month there is some bonus LEGO included.

The included bonus for the May edition is 30278 Poe’s X-Wing, which looks like a great little build.

KZone May 2016 Free XWing

The magazine should set you back around $5.99 which just like last month seems like a fair price even for the LEGO alone. You should be able to find a copy at most grocery stores and newsagents.

Thanks to Cary for reminding us about this
