The Child Buying Guide

Firstly – if you are in law enforcement and have come across this article please note that I am specifically talking about 75318 The Child, a $119.99 LEGO set. Don’t buy real children.

75318_front_01

Now, with that out of the way lets discuss 75318 The Child. This cute little thing was officially released today to coincide with the return of The Mandalorian. And you want to buy one right? Well it looks like you won’t be able to get one from LEGO directly just yet. The set seemingly went straight from Coming Soon to Temporarily out of stock. I don’t know if there was a point in the middle there where it was actually available. If you want to keep an eye on the product page you can find it here. This is a tempting option with the Han Solo keyring promo.

If you don’t care about bonuses and just want the best raw price then Kmart has this set listed for $99, which is $20 below RRP.

Slightly more expensive is Big W at $119.

If you happen to live close to a store then the various certified stores and LLDC should have stock of this set at RRP but it’s probably best to call ahead if possible.

Target, Amazon, David Jones and Myer do not as yet have listings for this but I’ll keep checking.

 

This is the way… LEGO gets another $120 from you – Official details of The Child

Today LEGO has released official details of The Child. We’ve already seen some pics of this one but no we know everything we need to know.

Introducing 75318 The Child

The Child is made up of 1073 pieces and includes a minifigure scale version of the super cute 50 year old as well as an information display stand.

With the Mandalorian Season 2 starting soon I think this one is going to disappear quicker than the Razor Crest jumping to lightspeed.

The set will cost $119.99 here in Australia and will be available from here as a pre-order from tonight, with the official release date set as October 30.

Check out additional images and the press release below.

Reminder: Cantina available tonight for VIPs

Update 2 – 10am 16/09: I have spoken to LEGO Australia and they aren’t sure why this was changed. It’s been escalated to the global team but due to timezones it might be a while before I get any response.

UPDATE: So it seems LEGO changed the date? The website is now saying available September 17th while the press release originally said the 16th. Maybe stay up until midnight but if it doesn’t become available head to bed.

By this point in time we all know that the Australian LEGO warehouse holds about 10 of each popular new release set, so I can say with some confidence that the 75290 Mos Eisley Cantina set is going to sell out during the VIP pre-release. That VIP pre-release should start in just a few hours at midnight AEST.

Did somebody say LEGO Baby Yoda?

It looks like somebody somewhere has stuffed up and put 75318 The Child out ahead of its official announcement. Obviously official details are yet to be provided but look at that cute little 50 year old!

LEGO Announces New Art Range

lego-art-announcement

The LEGO art range is a collection of 48×48 stud mosaic builds that will each set you back $200 here in Australia. Each set has parts to build a few different variations – for example the Iron Man set will allow you to build on of three suits. The Iron Man and Sith sets allow you to create larger mosaics if you choose to buy 3 of those particular sets.

To enhance the building experience each set comes with a podcast to listen to while you create your set.

If that wasn’t enough to get you over the line each set includes a new double width brick separator!
