UPDATE: For all LEGO Boxing Day sales, please check out the dedicated Boxing Day sales post!
Can you believe that it’s December? As we approach the year end and Christmas, retailers are stepping up their LEGO discount game, which is pretty much the best since this is one of the best times to shop for LEGO.
To keep track of the madness, check back here for all the LEGO deals and sales throughout Australia in December. Let’s get to it, all the LEGO sales that are happening in the lead up to Christmas.
Remember, you do not have to shop at these respective retailers – try to price match as much as possible (unless of course it’s an exclusive set) to avoid driving all over Melbourne looking for what you want.
Myer (17 – 24 December)
As we hurtle towards Christmas, Myer has a sweet 20% off all LEGO till Christmas Eve – that’s the 24th of December in case you were wondering!
20% is great and the sale works both online and in-store. If you were holding out on buying Metalbeard’s Sea Cow ($311), Parisian Restaurant ($199) or Palace Cinema ($160), now would be the best time to get it from Myer. With Christmas only 8 days away, you should get them quickly before they sell out in the inevitable last-minute Christmas gift rush.
Target (13 – 24 December)
Not wanting to miss out on last minute Christmas shoppers, Target is also offering 20% off all LEGO till Christmas Eve. From the targets I’ve been to, stock levels have been quite dire so your best bet would be to search online.
The only notable big ticket item that’s available online right now is LEGO 10937 DC Super Heroes Arkham Asylum Breakout ($199) but if you manage to find any Ewok Villages or UCS R2-D2s in store, those would be good buys too.
Target (Catalogue link 4 – 10 December)
Target is letting loose with one of my favourite kinds of sales, a flat 20% of all LEGO. The only negative is that the catalogue only runs for about a week. 20% off sales are great if you’re just looking for a bargain on any LEGO set.
Highlights in the catalogue includes their sweet range of exclusives such as:
- LEGO 10236 Star Wars Ewok Village – $311.20 (RRP $389)
- LEGO 10937 DC Super Heroes Arkham Asylum Breakout – $199.20 (RRP $249)
- LEGO 10225 Star Wars R2-D2 – $199 (RRP $249)
David Jones (Catalogue link 4 – 7 December)
David Jones is kicking off a 4-day sale with 20% off LEGO which is extremely fortuitous since they have some juicy exclusives and big ticket items in their inventory. They are the only retailer in Australia selling the Creator Fairground Mixer.
They are also one of the only major retailers that’s carrying the new Hobbit Lonely Mountain set, which I will most likely pick up. Here are my top picks to look out for at David Jones:
- LEGO 10224 Creator Fairground Mixer – $160 (RRP $200)
- LEGO 10218 Creator Pet Shop – $216 (RRP $269.99)
- LEGO 10232 Creator Palace Cinema – $160 (RRP $199.99)
- LEGO 79018 The Hobbit The Lonely Mountain – $152 (RRP $190)
Myer (Catalogue link 27 November – 24 December)
Myer have a looong catalogue, which goes all the way till Christmas eve. The obvious highlight of the catalogue is the fact that Modulars are now back at Myer, as well as exclusives like the Millennium Falcon and City Town Square. Unfortunately, the Grand Emporium and Town Hall are sold out online, but you can try your luck and check with your friendly Myer salespeople to check if they can order it from other stores.
The discounts are kind of erratic – Modulars and Town Square are discounted by about 10% and the Millennium Falcon comes in at about 20%.
To make up for the somewhat average discounts, Myer has a 50% off your 2nd toy offer from 3 – 7 December which is a great deal – if you manage to buy two LEGO sets which are at the same price, this would translate to an extra 25% savings. Protip: get a friend and buy 2 Modular sets for maximum savings.
Here are some of the best deals from the Myer Catalogue:
- LEGO 10243 Creator Parisian Restaurant – $229 (RRP $250) <exclusive to Myer>
- LEGO 10232 Creator Palace Cinema – $179 (RRP $199)
- LEGO 7965 Star Wars Millennium Falcon – $199 (RRP $249)
- LEGO 10220 Creator Volkswagen T1 Camper Van – $149 (RRP $169)
- LEGO 60026 City Town Square – $119 (RRP $129)
Kmart (Catalogue Link 4 – 10 December)
Kmart have a short catalogue that kicks off today which has some LEGO spread out all across their pages. To make it easier to see everything in one image, I’ve cut and paste all the LEGO sets on sale into one handy image.
While the selection of LEGO sets on sale is quite small, there are some really great deals in this such as Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, Spaceship!!! and City Police Station which come in at around 30% off respectively. I’ve picked out some of the highlights and best savings. I’ve used the sets’ RRP instead of Kmart’s slightly discounted prices for comparison.
- LEGO 70816 LEGO Movie Benny’s Spaceship, Spaceship, SPACESHIP! – $109 (RRP $150)
- LEGO 70811 LEGO Movie The Flying Flusher – $29 (RRP $40)
- LEGO 70806 LEGO Movie Castle Cavalry – $29 (RRP $40)
- LEGO 60047 City Police Station – $99 (RRP $150)
- LEGO 41034 Friends Summer Caravan – $29 (RRP $40)
Big W (Catalogue link 4 – 10 December)
Big W has a small selection of LEGO sets on sale as well which include City Vehicles for $20 and one of their biggest exclusives this year, the Arctic Ice Breaker. Here are my top picks:
- LEGO 60062 City Arctic Icebreaker – $128 (RRP $150) <exclusive to Big W>
- LEGO 60056 City Tow Truck – $20 (RRP $28)
- LEGO 60057 City Campervan – $20 (RRP $28)
- LEGO 60058 City SUV with Watercraft – $20 (RRP $28)
- LEGO 60059 City Logging Truck – $20 (RRP $28)
- LEGO 60043 City Prisoner Transporter – $20 (RRP $28)
That’s all for now! The sales are coming in fast and hard so all the best to your wallet! I hope you have way more self control than me!
