UPDATE: For Boxing Day sales and offers, check out this post which has all the deals from Myer, David Jones and Target.
UPDATE: Added in a Myer 20% off sale (yay) and 1-day David Jones Sale.
Guys, get this – it’s DECEMBER. Final month of the year. I’m mildly horrified at how quickly this year has gone but also incredibly excited about the holiday season which brings us… LEGO sales and offers! In the lead up to Christmas, I’m expecting some awesome sales as retailers launch one final salvo to tempt us to part with our hard earned cash just in time for Christmas!
Here’s the final Australian LEGO sale roundup post for the holiday season. I’ve bought a bit too much LEGO this year so I’ll be trying REALLY hard to resist the discounts and offers but I hope this helps you find some great deals!
Myer (Sale Info Link 16 – 24 December)
Myer has FINALLY come to their senses and will be offering a blanket 20% off LEGO sale all the way till Christmas even. This is a huge improvement over their current “selected sets on sale” catalogue – in fact, it pretty much overrides the stupid catalogue.
Myer’s back onto my “Nice List” this year and it’ll be a great place to pick up any last-minute Christmas gifts. Myer also has a complete range of current Modulars which should sell pretty fast with 20% off. The new Ideas Doctor Who set has also been spotted at some Myer stores, so it’s a great time to pick one up if you’re a Whovian.

David Jones (16 December)
David Jones has a one day sale (both online and in-store) where you can get 20% off all full-priced toys. Pretty decent since David Jones also has a large range of Modulars and exclusives. If you’re lucky you might even find a Ferris Wheel but chances are it’s probably sold out.
Doctor Who sets have also been reportedly spotted at David Jones, so it might be worth checking in with them today if you’re nearby one.

Big W (Catalogue Link 3 – 9 December)
This… has to be some kind of Christmas miracle. Out of nowhere, and I mean NOWHERE, Big W surprises us with two amazing offers.
Firstly, the new Force Awakens C-3PO polybag (5002948) is going to be an exclusive bonus when you spend $30 on LEGO during this promotional period. Someone at LEGO must’ve been listening to the collective cries of Australian fans and I’m so delighted that for once, just this once, we’re not shafted when it comes to promotional polybags. Well done, LEGO Australia!
Secondly, the legendary LEGO 10188 Death Star is back on sale at Big W which I did not see coming as well. This will probably be your LAST chance to get this set as it’s already on the brink on retirement (it’s Out of Stock online) and I’m reasonably informed that we’re going to get another updated Death Star (or Episode 7 equivalent) sometime next year.
It’s also about $100 cheaper than online and with Big W notorious for understocking these big ticket sets, I’d urge you to get down to your closest Big W ASAP to pick it up.
Let me say that I am really impressed with Big W’s LEGO offering! On to the catalogue, there are selected sets on sale with some notable discounts on LEGO Friends and City sets.
Set’s that are in bold have discounts greater than 20% off RRP which is calculated based on the set’s usual price and not Big W’s Every Day Low Prices.
Sets marked with an * are exclusive to Big W.

Myer (Catalogue Link 26 November – 24 December)
Myer have a month-long catalogue which runs till Christmas Eve. Unlike previous years where we could expect a blanket 20% off LEGO sale during the festive period, Myer have opted to only discount selected sets.
A holiday staple in the Myer Catalogue are the extremely popular Creator Expert Modular buildings and exclusives such as the UCS Slave 1 – all of which return to Myer shelves and their online store this year.
Other than the exclusives, I wasn’t too impressed by the selection at Myer. I haven’t been down to the Emporium to check stock levels, but all the big ticket items seem to be available for purchase online, which is a good thing since you don’t have to battle the crowds. Click on the links to purchase them online.
Too bad this seems to be the end of LEGO Modulars and exclusives falling under a blanket 20% sale. They’re still slightly cheaper than RRP, but the savings are definitely not as tantalising as before. You’re really only getting, at best 10% off the Modulars and Slave 1 with this sale.
Here are the highlights of the Myer catalogue:
Sets marked with an * are exclusive to Myer.
- LEGO 75060 UCS Slave 1 – $279 (RRP $299)*
- LEGO 10246 Detective’s Office – $209 (RRP $229)*
- LEGO 10232 Palace Cinema – $179 (RRP $199)
- LEGO 10218 Pet Shop – $249 (RRP $279)
- LEGO 10243 Parisian Restaurant – $229 (RRP $249)
- LEGO 10242 Creator Mini Cooper – $129 (RRP $149)
That’s it for now, check back to this page and I’ll be updating with any other LEGO sales that show up in December. Happy shopping!
Would you recommend getting the Death Star? I haven’t got any Star Wars sets at home, but really love the movies and am excited for The Force Awakens. Am tossing up between the Death Star and some newer sets like the X-Wing, Millenium Falcon and First Order Troop Transporter…
Wait for the new Death Star 🙂
I NEED THAT FREAKING C-3PO. I DO INDEEDY.
I’ve got mine from awhile back. Still sitting in its little polybag
