Shout out! What state are you in?(Australia)

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

I just scored myself 3 x technic 42000 for $210 in total delivered to me. They seem to be retailing for around $150 so I am hoping it was a great score. Happened to find them on gum tree. She apparently has lots of Star Wars too but the postage to me was going to be silly. She's in Melbourne I think.

I also just saw Toot Toot Toys are moving so having a 20% sale off Lego. I haven't had much of a look but I have bought from them many times and their service is good

Talk soon

WOW Wardy 210 total not each?? Thats a fantastic score. Is the rest of lego listed as bulk or separate listings? I am a star wars nut and if things are going that cheap let me know the info please.

Total!!!!! Not each

And did I not just see a post saying that Toys Paradise have them cheaper? They might but they don't have any in stock

Okay, I can't seem to find a link but if you search for 'LEGO' and BABIES AND KIDS' and then 'INDOOR TOYS' in Australia, although you can probably put in Sydney or Punchbowl. As she is in Punchbowl.

She has a crappy taken photo of a Star Wars new box and in the ad there is actually three different sets in the photos and they are all $70 each. I don't know if that is good value or not for the Star Wars cause I didn't look and don't know Star Wars well.

But I suggest ringing her, because she doesn't seem to know how to list well as she had one technic listed with Star Wars and friends, and when I actually spoke with her it turned out she had 5 boxes of the same technic set. She said to me on the phone today she had about 40 boxes of lego to sell so not sure what she actually has.

Good luck

Hi All,

 

Adelaide born and bred, I'm a big fan of Star Wars, any of the Space Lines (I have a few of the originals from the 70's, definitely used however :whistle: ), and I actually don't mind the Friends sets, espescially as it got my daughter interested in LEGO :frantics:!

 

Looking forward to getting involved in the community here!

 

Cheers

From Brisbane here. Off from lego about 10 years. Come back again as a collector and investor. Invest in any set that has the potential to grow in 3-5 years time.

 

ps.  please share if there is any special deal  :twitch:

For the guys that has shopped on Amazon, how long does delivery usually take?  Cheers

I guess one question would be which Amazon?

 

I bought my first Amazon UK the other day, with the shipment going out in two lots, only to have one package, with two Olivia's Houses, came back as undeliverable. Certainly didn't make it here and get sent back, considering there were only 2 or 3 days from shipping notice to failed delivery. But I digress, sorry!

I've been told it will be processed in 5 to 10 days. So we'll see.

 

I know with a Toys R Us (Aus) order that could not be fulfilled, I am still waiting on my refund (from mid September; opened a PayPaul dispute against them last night).

Everything I have bought from TRU US online has arrived (Sydney) damaged. You do save some money but most the time not worth the damage.

That's terrifying. Just bought few from them lately and waiting for it to arrive. By the way, how long would it takes for the item to arrive?

 

 

I was curious about amazon us. Bad experience or good? Should we start a new thread?

That's a good idea. A new threat only about buying online experience from many sources.

Hi people,

 

I'm from Melbourne and just came out of my dark age:) Noticed the post above about Amazon US experience. My family has used amazon US since early 2000 and have got all sorts of goods with no dramas at all.

 

Just got a SSD the other month. Arrived in pretty good knick considering its come from the states - I have had much worse batterings to lego purchases from ebay, even from the acclaimed FedEx - they were actually the worst in my experience.

 

Forgot to metion the returns policies of both Ebay and Amazon are pretty good and seem very consumer biased. Recently on Ebay I got a complete refund on a UCS set and got to keep it to boot. I didn't even ask for this or push hard - just said I couldn't leave positive feedback given the damage to the item and voila problem solved in less than a week from arrival.

I'm from Northern Victoria.

Pulled out all of my old sets from my parents (late 80 ' s through the 90's) and remembered how enjoyable Lego was so have just started collecting again and looking at getting into investing.

Hi All,

Short time listener, first time poster in Brisbane. I came out of the dark ages August last year when I saw the 10179 MF and decided that would be great project to order and build with my 5 yo (well I did the ordering and was parts monkey for the 5 yo to build - lucky boy!).  About 2/3 the way through the build now.

I've only really got into 'investing' this year. I nearly bought a 10188 death star last year but chicken out which I deeply regret now.  However I did pick up one of the last 10240 Xwings just before the new year so happy with that. Focusing on short term flips on opportunistic sales (ie Myer had 20% plus an eBay 10% off allowing my to pick up Kylo Ren's Command Shuttle (75104) for $121 delivered) plus longer term on the bigger sets. Happy enough to make just enough cash to justify buying a big set down the track. Also looking at it on some sets like an 'Option' to build.

I'm quite amazed how quiet the Australian scene is here on the forums.

Hi all.  Thought I'd help keep this thread going.

Brisbane, QLD.  Just out of my 20 year dark ages as of Dec 2015.  The set that did it: UCS Slave 1.

Already purchased far more than I ever owned as a kid.   Collecting at the moment rather than investing, for now.  Happy to share in the general sales news etc.
