David Jones have an active sale that’s quite standard. There’s 20% Batman Movie sets. Make sure you compare prices with Big W who have some of these sets at discounts greater than 20% and slightly cheaper. Unfortunately, the second wave of Batman sets is not being promoted but you may find them in store by now.
You may want to buy a few of these if you’re saving for the Ninjago City 70620 which is $500. This LEGO exclusive features three animals. A pig, polar bear and panda. You will likely find this at the Dreamworld LEGO Store and Melbourne Discovery Center soon but it is unlikely to feature as a GWP. The online LEGO store will also likely supply it but no price has been confirmed.
It contains 248 pieces which could suggest a price around $30 since it is an exclusive. I’m not really into collecting these type of sets but it may be valuable when it retires. You can also download the instructions now.
Today kicks off the first day of sales in store for Big W. They have a very nice range of sets, most of them better than 20%. The sale will go until Wednesday July 12, giving plenty of time to go shopping through the school holidays.
Target, K-Mart and David Jones have not yet released any sale or catalogue so if you’re looking for the best possible deal, you may want to wait. Their catalogues should be available before the end of the month.
Discount Range: 5%–41%
Exclusive to Big W: Jungle Air Drop Helicopter (60162) | $198.99 from $229.99
Other Noticeable Sets: SHIELD Helicarrier (76042) | Silent Mary (71042)
I’m not sure when LEGO updated their Sales & Deals page but the danish toy company has improved the previous 10% on selected retiring sets to a 30% discount, which is a significant promotion from them.
Many of the sets (currently 26) are still available (only 11 out of stock) so this extra discount will certainly improve the flow of sales.
Remember FREE shipping will be applied with purchases over $200.00 which may not be that hard to do with the bigger sets. If you’re into seasonal sets, both Romantic Valentine Picnic 40236 and Easter Egg Hunt 40237 are priced for $10.49 instead of $14.99 which are D2C (direct to consumer). The Batman Movie 71017Minifigures are also priced at $4.19 instead of $5.99, just bare in mind that LEGO distribute minifigures randomly. You cannot choose.
As an afterthought, there are a lot of NEXO Knight sets listed…the rumour was proved false previously, but is the NEXO Knight theme losing its own battle?
The lucky VIPs now have access to the largest LEGO Minecraft created so far, containing 2863 pieces and light. The cost is $399.99. A price that will put many people off, but if you’re into lots of grey bricks, 2×2 and 2×4 bricks, this set may be for you.
The general public can buy this set from July 1st, but keep in mind all the winter sales starting [australia] now or very soon.
