Australian Prices For New Sets

Australian prices have been posted on the LEGO® online store for the two awesome sets that are coming out January 1st 2014.

10243 Parisian Restaurant
Australian Price $249.99
US Price $159.99

10241 Maersk Line Triple-E
Australian Price $199.99
US Price $149.99
LEGO 10241 Maersk Triple E

Bricking Around did a quick currency conversion to see how those prices stack up. These figures are based on adding 10% to the US prices and converting to Australian dollars using the rate at the time of writing.

Parisian Restaurant converted price – $185.89
That works out to be a $64 premium over a straight converted price. That doesn’t seem too bad, but it isn’t as great as other prices have been recently.

Maersk Triple-E converted price – $174.27
Compared to the straight converted price that is only a markup of $25. Much better!

The Parisian Restaurant does have substantially more pieces than the Triple-E (2469 vs 1518), and that alone could be the justification for the higher markup on the latest modular. Higher part counts do result in heavy sets and increased shipping costs.
