Thanks guys. I don't have time to do the rounds so I might get on the phone tomorrow and ring a few places. Failing that it'll have to be the next batch in October.

So I rang around heaps of David Jones' stores today chasing the Saturn V. CBD sold out yesterday as did Bondi. Chatswood had 8 in stock that were all bought by one person as soon as the store opened this morning (They opened at 9:30 and I rang just after 10am).

Both Bondi and Chatwood were showing as having 4 and 6 more in stock respectively but neither store could find them. They suspect it is either a system error or the stock hasn't arrived yet. They said to keep checking every day or so.

I tried my local Toyworld, down in Kiama and they had one that they sold over the phone to a guy in Canberra yesterday.

So I gave up in frustration. Wifey rang around for me and found one in stock at a toy shop somewhere in NSW and they are going to post it

And she managed all that while juggling the housework, groceries and a toddler that threw a tantrum every chance he got all day! I knew there was a reason I married her!

Yep. Didn't work. Fell over at the last step.

The only options available were click and collect, sadly none of the stores I can get to (which was most of the metro area ones) did not have any stock available.

I do hate that someone went and got all 8, we all know exactly where they are going at overinflated prices.

Just got to hope for a second round of them from the lego shop... October maybe?

HobbyCo in the city apparently had 37 in stock with 1 being unallocated. They said this was half the number originally promised to them. They're not taking any more orders until they receive an invoice from Lego. These are due in November. I put my name down for the unallocated one, probably among 1,000 other collectors.
