Kid-Mania at BIGW

Posted by ,

BIGW stores in Australia are having a Lego Week sale from September 24th -September 30th. They are also running a build my face competition, where you have a chance to Win a Lego mosaic Portrait. Space Police and Star Wars sets are discounted from the already everyday low price. Savings are up to 30% off R.R.P

Kmart stores are also having a 15% off sale for the same period. They have also placed the Star Wars Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker on clearance and it is currently reduced to AU$250.

Update 24th Sept: Kmart is applying the 15% off Lego to the Star Wars Republic Dropship with AT-OT Walker this brings the price during this week's sale to AU$212.50. They have also reduced the Technic Hauler 8264 to AU$75 ( AU$63.75 during the sale).

Uh, the AT-OT walker was always $250, so it can't be "reduced" to $250. (Unless the store was selling it for higher then Lego charges...)

Don't forget we're talking Australian dollars in this article, the US is not the only country with dollars :-)

YES!!! I will certainly buy quite a few sets! Thank you for this information; if I hadn't read it here, I wouldn't have found out about it, and I wouldn't be able to buy some Star Wars set to great prices!

@ Republic Commando Sev: you would be surprised at some of the mark-up's on Lego here in Australia, it is not uncommon to find lego set's with prices around 25% higher than Lego's R.R.P.

I was in the Big W at Marion yesterday; someone must have forgotten to tell them. Are you sure this isn't just in Western Australia?

As for "the already everyday low price", please don't act as a shill for the retailers. A few years ago Big W's prices were notably lower than LEGO's RRP, this year their prices are only a few percentage points lower than RRP, and only a few cents different from K-mart.

@ Wolfy 8880: The BIGW sale started today and is Australia wide.

Sorry mate, my PC calendar was showing the wrong date, my computer said today was the 25th, not the 24th. Fixed my clock/calendar. Thanks for indirectly bringing that to my attention.

I have to agree with "Wolfy 8880" becuase I went to K-Mart at TTP and they do have 15% of Lego
but not a discontinued price on the AT-OT. It's still $299, not the $250 you have seen in Perth.
I wish we were so lucky in SA.

K-Marts discount of the AT-OT walker must be a WA special only.

SA has the special too.

I just bought a dropship for $212.50 at Kmart at Noarlunga (Colonnades). There were about 5 left an hour ago.

Hope that helps someone!

I too have to make an amendment to my previous post, K-Mart has the Drop Ship on special so I suggest picking one up whilst you can. Don't believe the ticket price or what the staff tell you.
Go down to the check out and it shall be $212.50.
Now thats a bargain at any price!

Glad you sorted it out then...

I've just been looking at the Big W web site and it says the kid-mania sale is this weekend only, not for a full week. "Starts 24 Sep - Ends in 4 days." If you're interested, you better get in quickly.

i suppose this means that anyone who bought the AT-OT and Dropship from th lego shop online was being quite silly...like me *@!*!
