I'm already at that point... Perth guy hasnt received his large set since I mailed it on the 14th. Tracking is still only at the original scan at my LPO

Brisbane to Perth 4 weeks.

With each sale  - I let the buyer know that the eBay delivery estimate is a complete fantasy and to use the Auspost parcel tracking website. To date only one drama - with an INR case for $10 polybag - which I have just written off and blocked the buyer wi-7834.

Can anyone down under let us know what the May the 4th sales are looking like once it gets to midnight? They might not be the same for us stateside but might give us a glimpse into what we could see as well. 

thank you!

Speaking from NZ, they're absolutely rubbish...

But  theUS often has a completely different range of sets on sale to NZ/AU anyway.

thought i read somewhere today that there is going to be new deals everyday, but not sure if there is much validity to that. guess we'll see.

21309 SV just about to go through the $400 barrier on eBay. Could have had these for $115 delivered not long ago.

So much for overhoarded . Glad I didn’t listen. 🤑

Good idea. Don’t think $600 is out of the question, maybe more. I have a built one on display and it really does look fantastic.

Getting one of these. Will be interesting to see the effect on 75919.

With half the pieces of 75919 this new set should be twice the price?

Wednesday the 10th Aldi special buys include 3 Lego sets for $49.99.

Only one I'm pondering is 60194 Arctic Scout Truck (RRP was $69.99, Retired at start of year, has sold on eBay for $140, before this crashes that price). Could be a 3 - 4 years before we see the Arctic sub theme come around again.

LEGO stocks are pretty much disappearing from the retail shops, LOL. I am only seeing LEGO city and super heroes stuff (all the ugly ones and not the awesome batmobile).

I didn’t even bother. Amazon was heaps easier with no cancellations and far quicker shipping.
