PotC and Duplo Cars sets at Target stores (Australia)

Posted by ,
Queen Anne's Revenge

Several people have reported seeing new sets from the Pirates of the Carribean range and the Duplo Cars range on shelves at Target stores.

Prices at Target are currently at LEGO Australia's RRP, so it is still much cheaper to source these sets from the US - if you can find them online! Apparently, Australian customers who placed orders with Barnes & Noble for LEGO PotC sets recently have all had their orders cancelled, due to "no stock available".

Thank you to Brickset members shokwave2 and Dr. Rod and also toDinkums-Dazza (via Facebook) for your information.

Edit: Just in the mail today, and also as noted by Brickset member, TinyTurbosCityAndToyStory, was a catalogue from Big W advertising that they are now carrying the new Cars (non-Duplo) sets also. More details in the comments.

Methinks it's time to grab my Target discount card, accept the inevitable and sally into Target for some overpriced POTC LEGO...

YEah, my order was cancelled. :( I'm going to order them at Lego.com now.

Some of the "regular Lego" Cars sets have also been released in Target stores - in particulat, Classic Mater, Classic Ligtening McQueen, Mater's Spy Zone and Escape at Sea, 3 of which I noticed have been labelled as "Not Yet Release" on this site.

They'll be on sale at Target from Thursday. The QAR is a much more bearable $150 for the sale.

Heading out tomorrow, I'll check Target then. But I suspect the sheer price of the PotC sets will be too prohibitive.

Thanks for the heads up, and Hewman, thanks for the sale info. I would never pay full retail for these, especially with the big Aussie toy sales set to start at the end June. All of the majors have 20% off or more with selected sets even cheaper. Just check out the Aussie Shopping section here on Brickset and go back to the sales last year. Back then Myer even had the Imperial Flagship for $200.

I won't be waiting for any sales, i'll be snapping up Ultimate Build McQueen (or Mater if available) from Big W on Wednesday. Anyone think that this theme will last longer than a year? I hope they release some more Ultimate Builds. I'd like to see Doc and maybe the Tractors.

Just thought I'd add that Target have more than just those 4 sets in store. I'm guessing that those are the only ones on sale though. I'll be in there at 9.00am tomorrow.
