At big w's (in adelaide at least) they have the galactic enforcer for $67, y-wing for $45 and the venator for $129, which are pretty good deals.

If people don't want to wait for the sale, I was in Target this morning, and they've got all the World Racer stuff already out. But agreed that the TRU sale is a bit lacking.

@Zordboy - Were the World Racer sets you saw at the prices listed in the catalogue?

I think so. It looked like they'd *just* put them on the shelves (and I didn't look that closely, 'cause the World Racer doesn't really grab me that much), and they weren't on special yet, but yeah, the sale doesn't start for a couple of weeks. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

I dont think Toys R us sale is worth bothering ... I was interested in the firestation and Home one. They were selling for $299 and $199 and did not offer laybuy. Online inc shipping I found them cheaper by $40 each, combined they are even cheaper from legoshop.

IMO, dont bother find a smaller Myer store and enjoy the laybuy till christmas and the epic savings. $1400spent there last week. Myer is low on stock of the Emerald Night, Flagship and cargo train however I can confirm saturday 3july there are some still in Brisbane. Kmart also has the Wampa set for $70 as well as new Tantive IV

As of Saturday Myer @ Bondi Junction in Sydney still had plenty of Emerald Night and maybe half a dozen cargo trains. I could only see 1 Flagship.

Kmart @ Bondi had only 1x 5512 LEGO® XXL Box – AUD 69.00 (Was: 99.99) which I duly took off their hands.
