I'm expecting the TLJ sets are going to be massive-expensive.
$229 and they have 4 in stock. Actually not that bad compared to the TFA MF and the last ISD.

NVM, it's only the Star Destroyer that's $20 cheaper, everything else is pretty much exactly what I thought it'd be based on US dollar comparisons for other sets.

Yep, and if Myer doesn't have anything in stock (20% off) I'll just be doing a bulk order through them like last for the last 2 movies. Those guys are great!

Don't understand how she makes any money, they are cheaper than the Myer 20% prices, and similar enough to shopforme(and even better at times!)

She must be moving most sets fairly fast enough to not be wearing the aged inventory cost.

Quite a few Lego items from a range of themes on clearance at Big W. For example, some Star Wars Constraction sets have been reduced to $10. Lego Batman movie figures are now $3.

There are a few bigger ones half price at Big W. The Lego City Airshow with the two fighters, old plane and hanger was half price at $48. Also saw a big Batman one and I think a Superhero Girls one too.
