Got myself a couple Cloud Cuckoo Palaces from Target Online.

I visited 3 different stores today in Adelaide CBD (Target, Toyworld & Myer) and they barely had any Lego Movie sets at all.... are these going EOL soon?

I dont think TLM sets are going EOL, they are just selling like hotcakes because of the success of the movie.

20% off at MYER for Saturday only.

Has anyone here picked up the second set of 5 LEGO Movie cards or know which characters you get (and which numbers)?

Not really a "sale" per se, however at Lego Shop at Home if you're a VIP and you order the new Fairground Mixer, you get TWO bonus sets:

- 5002127 - Flashback Shredder

- 40108 - Balloon Cart

and there's free shipping as well. If you definitely want the Fairground Mixer now seems like the best time to buy.

Went to 4 different MYER stores today and called another 6 or so on the phone. Not a single Hulk Lab Smash or Metalbeard at ANY MYER store in SE QLD (despite the MYER website at the time indicating that Brookside, Chermside AND Indroopilly had stock). No sign of much in the way of other stuff either. (unless you count the dozen or so Opera Houses and big technic cranes at the Brisbane CBD store)

Looks like my best option to get the LEGO Movie cards for May is to buy maybe some City or something (unless MYER happens to re-stock on Super Heroes or Movie product between now and the end of the month)

As for the Hulk set, I might have to pay full RRP for it and suck it up (or forget about owning an Incredible Hulk figure...)

Hulk is out of stock on the MYER online store too otherwise I could order from there and get my cards :)

There WAS plenty of Superman and Batman and Spider-Man crap at pretty much every store I went to, just no Avengers.

The TMNT Flashback Shredder polybag is for any S@H order over $45 until the end of the month.

Has anyone here picked up the second set of 5 LEGO Movie cards or know which characters you get (and which numbers)?

The email from Myer showed Benny, Good Cop, Metalbeard, President Business & Frank the foreman.

Yeah I saw the info in-store on Saturday.

So now all I need to find is A.A way to get a Hulk Lab Smash set for a decent price (I suspect the current 20% off at Target is my best hope at this point) and B.A way to spend $75 at MYER in May and get some product I actually want (that or find another way to get the cards somehow :)

Any word on when the next wave of TLM sets are landing here? Frothing at the mouth looking at Benny's Spaceship, and the other two sets are pretty good too.

Not soon enough. I heard that the spaceship is August.

Anyone know when the current 20% off at Target finishes?

Target catalogues go for 1 week starting Thursdays. Sometimes a sale will be extended for another week when not previously advertised, but not usually. Haven't seen the next catalogue yet to know whether or not on this occasion.

If the reports about the Spaceship not comming to Australia until August, I WILL be ordering from Amazon, Toys R Us USA or any other retailer who will ship one to me. And I am sure I am not the only one here who will be doing so...

The Simpsons house spotted at Big W TTP (Adelaide) tonight at $298.

Thanks for the info. If they have a 20% off sale that's an excellent price.

Same, August is atrocious. Australia really got screwed with TLM.

Seems like the August date for TLM wave 2 is looking more likely as the release is timed to tie in with the DVD release of the film (which is not happening until months after the rest of the world because the film didn't hit theaters until months after the rest of the world)

Looks like Amazon or TRU USA or somewhere will get my money and not the local retailers (to be fair, I doubt the local retailers or even LEGO Australia had any say on this, I bet Warner Bros made the decision here)

I finally picked up my Hulk Lab Smash from Target Springwood (last one they had in stock too as far as I could see), probably the last one at any Target in QLD (certainly the last at any Target I might have been able to get to easily)

Great set too, Hulk is one of my favorite super heroes, as is Thor. Iron Man is the only other Marvel Cinematic Universe hero I really like (although if they come out with a Fantastic 4 set or a decent X-Men set, I might be interested in that)

Anyone seen any Iron Man stuff anywhere in QLD that's at a reasonable price? (and not at the rip-off RRP us Aussies were saddled with for that product line). Or have I missed the boat on the cheap Iron Man stuff?

FYI Amazon is shipping Benny's Spaceship to Australia and the expedited shipping is a very reasonable $25. It ends up being about $135 which will be cheaper than what it sells for here anyway. Really no reason to wait for the local release.

At 20% off it will come down to $119.992 in Australia and unless MYER, Target and TRU (and David Jones too) ALL change their policies between now and then, it shouldn't be too hard to find it at the 20% off price (or possibly even cheaper if you go for e.g. MYER buy-one-get-one-50% or buy-2-get-one-free deals and buy multiples

So if you are willing to wait, you can definatly get it cheaper in Oz than what Amazon want for it at this point in time. (but hey, lets face it, how many here are going to wait that long for what is the closest thing to a proper Space set LEGO have released in the last 2 decades... :)

Not forgetting the Ecto-1, need to keep an eye out for that too (in case TRU USA, Amazon or someone like that will ship me one, the deal I got on the BTTF set last year from TRU USA was great :)

Do we know what the Aus RRP of the Constructo-Mech is going to be?

$99 I believe has been reported.

I read on Bricking Around that it's going to be $89.99 (http://brickingaround.com/2014/05/12/australian-prices-for-new-lego-movie-sets/). All 3 of the soon to be released TLM sets appear to be 1.5 x US RRP.

70184 Emmet’s Construct-o-Mech in US is $59.99 x 1.5 = $89.99 in Aus

70815 Super Secret Police Drop Ship in US is $79.99 x 1.5 = $119.99 in Aus

70816 Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! in US is $99.99 x 1.5 = $149.99 in Aus
