2017 Advent Calendars – Day 7 – City, Friends & Star Wars

I can’t believe it’s already day 7. This month is going way too quickly. Yesterday was mixed, with two great builds and one lame one. Hopefully today will be three winners.

I had quite a busy day today (not just playing with LEGO AR Studio) so I’m only just getting a chance to post today’s builds now.

Today may be all about the slightly underwhelming launch of Amazon but the inevitable approach of Christmas is not slowing down. It’s already day 5!

2017 Advent Calendars – Day 4 – City, Friends & Star Wars

It’s been a horrible rainy day here in Brisbane. Hopefully the day 4 builds are better than the weather.

Unfortunately I have been unwell all day and have only just managed to get today’s post up but it’s still December 1st in Perth. Hopefully the remaining days will feature slightly better photos and the post will be more timely.

Each day’s builds will be hidden after a break so you won’t get spoiled on the homepage. Read on to see what Day 1 has for us.

Win A Platinum LEGO R2-D2 Figurine

An interesting new competition, with a really cool prize, has just popped up on the LEGO site.

LEGO are giving away two Platinum LEGO R2-D2 figurines and all you need to do is provide your email address, date of birth and country. There is no purchase necessary to enter this draw.

There will be two grand prize winners who will each receive a LEGO® Star Wars™ R2-D2™ Figurine made of platinum, presented with certificate of authenticity in a custom display case. This isn’t just a regular LEGO R2-D2 with a coating. The approximate retail value of each prize is £2,500 (over $4000 AU).

Odds of winning are going to be incredibly slim, but the prize is something that there are literally only two of in the whole world.

You can find the entry form and all of the terms and conditions here: https://shop.lego.com/en-AU/R2D2Contest

You May Be Able To Buy A Millennium Falcon Tomorrow

Unfortunately this is one just for people in Melbourne and the Brisbane/Gold Coast area… both the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre in Chadstone and the Dreamworld LEGO Store have confirmed that they will have stock of the 75192 Millennium Falcon set tomorrow.

LEGOLAND Discovery Centre Melbourne

The store’s Facebook page has confirmed that they will have 45 of the sets available with a limit of 1 per person. Stock is first in first served.

The store will be opening early at 8:30am but chances are you will need to line up early.

Dreamworld LEGO Store

The store manager has confirmed that they will have “more than 45″ units available when the doors open at 9am tomorrow.

They will also have a limit of 1 per person and first in first served.

Remember the store is separate from the park.

Both of these options are likely to be extremely popular. Good luck to those of you who are trying to get your hands on a set. I’d love for you to share some line pictures on the Bricking Around Facebook page if you happen to be heading to either location.
