As in feeling to make sure they dont get the bowl cut loser?

I lucked out with my local Coles but the box was picked clean last night.

Toymate mr druitt and Blacktown has hem but I think they are $6 each which is another 50 cents more than Coles who were the most expensive I had previously seen.

Yep exactly lol Apparently he's shortpacked as well - 2/60.

Went to Coles Top Ryde the other night and they had 3 near-fresh boxes of this series. Percival Graves is gone from all 3 boxes. Just like the last CMF series, Lego has placed him in the exact same position in each box - from YouTube reviewers its placed 1st column on the left 3rd from the back. Oh well, my girlfriend was she was over the moon from getting a tiny jar Nutella.

The Gold Coast store had sold over 40 of the 6000 piece Hogwarts castle by about 5pm today.

After seeing the LEGO store I really donít understand why Lego donít have at least one physical store per capital city. They made a killing as Dreamworld closed, not to mention the number of people who came, bought and left.

Might be cheaper almost everywhere else but between the exclusives and range in stock itís be a surefure hit to have one in Sydney, Perth and Adelaide.

Howarts Castle made the local news in Melbourne on the weekend. I'm no Lego collector but it looked amazing. I think it was priced in the $600s at the Lego Discovery Centre Melbourne.

It's mind numbing trying to rationalise why there isn't a Sydney store when they built a store in Dreamworld that isn't in a major city or is easily accessible by public transport. In one of the Singaporean stores I visited last Christmas, a dad came in intending to buy Star Wars sets for his son and walked off with the Death Star for himself. We managed to visit 3/5 stores - not saying that Sydney needs that many stores, but come on even Bali has a Lego store

Ebay is unreal. I'm sure they can find something cheaper or just go a for a swap meet.
The rare ones (cart/basket) is in gumtree for $100-$200 though

Big W Penrith had three of the Hogwarts express sets for $139, which is the same as the Lego shop had them for in September.

They were meant to be a TrU exclusive but then they folded so itís nice to see that it still managed to get a retail release. Itís a nice set but not $139 worth since it doesnít even have magnetic couplings.

I am pumped for the Lego Overwatch sets! D.Va, Reinhardt and Bastion all look wicked and Bastion transforms into a turret too. I think I'll double dip on the D.Va so I can have one at work.

I hope they do well so more can be made. Would love to see a Junkrat/Roadhog combo.
