20% Off all Lego. Go nuts people!

Sale starts Sept 25 to Oct 1. No TF discounts though.
See, I'm not so sure about this. Some Targets give 10%, and a few have given 20%. Epping for instance was 20% yet Doncaster Westfield was 10%

Love the missiles, they really pack a punch. Wish there was some storage clips for all the extra weapons and batarangs and such. Might have to try and find some single white clip pieces from other sets to put in the icecream van...

Someone lend me a car...

But I don't think it should be much of a problem. If they want to play technical/hard ball with you, you can point to the Trade Practices Act and the Fair Trading Act whereby if they misprice something on the shelves, then they have to give you the first for free and the second at the actual price.

I've done it before.

Man, that Batmobile doesn't look too bad at all.

But it sure as hell does not photograph well, being almost all black bricks on the outside.

Not a very difficult set to make, nor very long, only took about 45 minutes for the Tumbler (with many pauses to watch the football on tv) and the joker van about 15. Stickers are painful though.

The Speed Racer sets are excellent. Especially at the cheap prices I have seen them going for recently.

They look small but they are HUGE cars! Especailly the Grand Prix set. The cars measure generally 8 x 20 studs in size. Will take a pic when I get back home at the end of the week.

I am really tempted by the Speed Racer sets but they don't really fit any theme I collect (Space, Exo-Force, Agents) and dont look likely to have any new sets coming out so I'm waiting for them to hit clearance before I even think about touching them. The fact that I've got almost nothing left to get Lego-wise is the only reason I'm even thinking about purchasing them!
