Check Out These Sets Coming In 2018

LEGO have updated their servers with images of some of the sets that will be released in 2017. There’s Creator, Technic and City sets to check out. With the images of these already online it’s likely that these are all January release sets but that hasn’t been confirmed. No pricing as yet.

Creator

31071 Drone Explorer – 109 pieces

Interesting subject for a set. It seems to be a piloted drone, but there is no minifigure included. Alternate builds are a plane and airboat.

Everything You Need To Know About Dreamworld’s LEGO Store

Dreamworld LEGO Store Thumb

I was lucky enough to be given a preview tour of Australia’s first LEGO Certified Store at Dreamworld today. The store officially opens at 9am Saturday January 28th (QLD time) but I was able to check it out and get the low down on everything you need to know.

Will the store be offering the same promotions as LEGO online?
Some of them. The manager I spoke to was unable to confirm that all of the LEGO Online promotions would appear in the store, but some should. These promotions will be advertised on the Dreamworld Facebook page. During the tour the store manager discussed the possibility of a dedicated page for the store, so keep an eye out for that.

What is planned in the way of events for kids?
The store will be holding monthly events for kids. These won’t all be Make & Take events but at least some will.

Is anything planned in the way of adult events?
At this stage there isn’t anything planned for AFOL specific events.

What benefits are there for Dreamworld ticket holders?
The shop is purely a retail space. There are no advantage for ticket holders (no discounts etc). We already knew that you’d be able to enter the store from outside the park but it’s nice to know that those with tickets won’t get special treatment.

Target Reveals 2015 Toy Sale Exclusives

It seems with all the sales starting this week Target were feeling a little left out. To get in on the action (and stop us spending all our money before their sale) they have launched a teaser site for their sale, which kicks off on July 22nd 2015.

Normally previews are pretty boring but Target have revealed that their sale is going to feature two UCS sets that haven’t previously been available at retail.

Target Toy Sale 2015 Preview UCS

That’s right -  76023 The Tumbler and 75095 TIE Fighter will both be part of Target’s 2015 Toy Sale.

There are no prices released yet, but we can make a few predictions. In their 2014 toy sale the Target percentage discount ranged from 20 – 30%. As a conservative bet lets look at a 10% discount and a 20% discount.

  • 76023 The Tumbler : $263.99 – $296.99
  • 75095 TIE Fighter : $239.99 – $269.99

Let us know what you think of those potential prices.
