    Chinese New Year’s sets -2019

    Word on the street (via the Lego FB page) is that they will only be available in Australia via physical stores including Lego branded stores, Myer, DJ’s and speciality toy stores. Apparently they were in stock @ Lego Dreamworld today.
  2. It wouldn’t surprise me. The price of the original is crazy and there are so many fakes out there; both reasons TLG has been re-releasing sets of late. It would be great fan service for the anniversary too (unless of course you own the original for ‘investment’).
  3. I wouldn’t be complaining, have you seen how much they are already ‘worth’? Regardless of the packaging it’s low volume and thus highly collectable. In fact, I think the lack of graphics, simple instructions and individual numbered QC sticker on the back only adds to its charm.

    I thought you were being a bit precious but having seen the image that is literally the cheapest looking polybag I’ve seen. It’s at odds with the super premium look/feel of the actual set.
  5. I’d definitely go back for Slave-1. It’s either retired or retiring very soon. It’s great value for a UCS, scales perfectly with the Falcon and they look incredible together.
  6. I did exactly the same. $7.99 keyring, $12.50 postage. The things we do for ‘exclusive’ perks...

    Yes. And ordered. I received an email yesterday. It could be easily missed as the main title and body was in relation to the current 2x VIP point promotion. You have to scroll down to see the black VIP part with your unique code. Any SW purchase qualifies (I ordered a keyring) but I’ve heard others ordering non-SW sets and still qualifying. Just enter the code at checkout and it will appear.
  8. Lol Brikky, I don’t think I’ve ever heard it abbreviated to ‘MILF’. It gives new meaning to the line “She may not look like much but she’s got it where it counts, kid”
  9. ...From Dec 7. You’d think they would at least make it available on Dec 1 when Vader’s castle is available on S@H. That minifig is going to be pretty sought after though!
  10. I can’t see this happening. It’s Dec 1 tomorrow and no news. It would make sense for it to coincide with the release of Darth Vader’s castle if it were true.
  11. I don’t whether I’d call a few images “dramatic leaking”. Lego did crack down on leaks; it was so much more free-flowing before they effectively shut down the Discord and reddit leak discussions.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Clever marketing really. I bought a set I had no intention of getting - Winter village Fire Station - just to get the promotional set. I’m sure the 2018 HP sets will be one of the biggest sellers for TLG but I’d love to know the effect that HP promotional sets has on sales of other themes.

    Bugger. I saw on Facebook that it was live. Hopefully they restock as scalpers are asking stupid prices on EBay already.

    Harry Potter 2018 - Rumors & Discussion

    Not surprisingly, the Diagon Alley promotional set went to “out of stock free item” on the Australian Lego S@H within ~6 hours. No word on whether they will restocking but given the promo hasn’t begun in other parts of the world yet I suspect the local allocation is exhausted.

    Apparently there are no plans for it to come to Australia. I just picked one up from a Singaporean based BL store. $45 AUD (30 USD) + $13 shipping. It arrived well packaged and mint, so I’m very happy. I figured the minimum spend to get it ‘free’ in store was like $40 anyway, and would have been higher here, if available.
