If you missed it, the Australian release schedule for the second half of 2015 has been unveiled via the retailer catalogue. While the catalogue featured a heap of sets that LEGO fans had been anticipating there was a few sets that seemed to be missing.
There are three Ultra Agents sets that so far have not been released in Australia, and we now know that they never will be.
After spotting a comment from Dan on the release schedule post about this issue, we decided to get in touch with LEGO Australia to confirm the news. This is the response we received;
due to a strategic decision currently no new LEGO Ultra Agents sets are planned to be released in the European market (which includes AU). This concerns the sets you have queried below.
The sets in question were
- 70171 Ultrasonic Showdown
- 70172 AntiMatter’s Portal Hideout
- 70173 Ultra Agents Ocean HQ
While the Ultra Agents theme hasn’t exactly taken the world by storm, it’s still disappointing to learn that these sets will not be available for Australian LEGO fans. We’ll be looking around for an online retailer that will ship these sets to Australia.
