Exclusivity Information For August 2018


August features some popular releases but as usual there are few sets that you’ll have to go to a little extra effort to track down. Here’s your guide to what sets are exclusive to what retailer for August 2018.

Big W manages to snare two interesting exclusives. First is the latest UCS Star Wars set 75181 Y-Wing Starfighter. The second is 76112 App-Controlled Batmobile. I suspect that these sets won’t show up until after the 20% off sale ends.

The Bugatti Chiron should be available from Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores this month. Hopefully Myer don’t exclude this one from their sales.

As usual the new BrickHeadz are exclusive to Myer, David Jones and specialty toy stores.

Interestingly the data that I was provided said that Hogwarts Express is an August release to the mass market – meaning everyone. I am not sure when this will actually arrive in stores and if this information overwrites the November date I had heard previously.

Of course the question that everybody keeps asking (I think LEGO are sick of me asking them) is what is happening with Toys R Us exclusives. The answer unfortunately is that there is no answer. The only update on Toys R Us exclusives at this stage is that 75955 Hogwarts Express is now available at mass (meaning all LEGO retailers). All other products are still in planning and negotiation.

You can see the full list of exclusives below.

    Great info, thanks.

  2. Max says:

    Any news on the Oni Titan for Ninjago?

  3. Mark says:

    That’s awesome news on the Hogwarts Express. I managed to snag one from LEGO S@H but the demand for this is too big for it to be an exclusive. Scalpers would have had a field day.

  4. Mark says:

    And it’s a pity the Hoth Medical Chamber is a Target exclusive. I saw it in store last night but at $59 it is rubbish value.

  5. tacenda says:

    Any news on if the Hogwarts Castle will make it to any retailer? I know it’s technically a Sep release but with VIP access on the 15th I having to fight temptation.

  6. Jonathan Wilson says:

    I read a report that as of now there are no plans to release the Hogwarts Castle at local retail (which seems stupid)

  7. Gabe says:

    Anyone knows what the product id in big w for the UCS Y-Wing is?

    • Michael says:

      I’m not sure they have listed it yet

      • Gabe says:

        Thanks Michael. Yeah they haven’t listed it yet. The lady at my local Big W thinks she sold one the day before yesterday to a gentleman but she said that unless I give her that product id she cannot really see if they have one “at the back”. Would be awesome to grab one while the sale is still on ;-)

    • Michael says:

      I don’t have the Big W product ID but the barcode number is 5702016109665, they may be able to look it up based on that.

  8. Cindy says:

    Has anyone seen the Hogwarts express in any Melbourne store other than LDC?

  9. Aidan says:

    Does anyone have a photo of the barcode for the App-controlled Batmobile?
