Update 2: It’s now the 1st of October in the UK and Europe and Bandmates Series 2 is also available for purchase in the United Kingdom. It’s safe to assume that they’ll also be available in the US when they tick over to October.
Thanks to Phillip C and AprilB for the heads up on this.
Yes, this is after I had shared info that Bandmates Series 2 would not be available in Australia, just 2 days ago.
I’d like to apologise for misleading anyone – this is incredibly frustrating, as I pride myself with doing as much due diligence as possible, to avoid sharing any incorrect information, and even actively avoid sharing information on rumoured sets etc that i cannot verify myself.
See below for my correspondence with my contact at LEGO Australia, which was the source of the article saying that Bandmates would not make its way to Australia and New Zealand.
This has honestly been a nightmare, trying to get direct information from LEGO themselves, and I’m not trying to say that I had been fed false information.
There is so much confusion currently around the fate of Bandmates Series 2 (hence why I reached out to LEGO Australia directly as I have a great relationship with them), and even on the LEGO Ambassador Network Forum, many Ambassadors have been trying to get some sort of clarification surrounding this for days now – but LEGO for some reason, are being a little cagey here.
Watch this space to see what else develops. I’ve made an order so we’ll see if they actually show up…
So I guess this is reasonably good news that it is available to purchase in Australia and New Zealand… and time will tell if it’ll also be available from LEGO in Western Europe, the UK, the US and other regions.
Again, apologies for causing any alarm!
Update: I’ve typed up a rant on Facebook because this has seriously annoyed me.
