Despite it selling out globally on the official LEGO shop@home website, and going into backorder status, fans in Australia and New Zealand can still add this latest Ultimate Collector Series set to their collection through the LEGO certified brand store chain.
If you don’t want to wait for new stocks to arrive at the official LEGO website on December
8th 9th, then read on.
The Holo-Brick Archives has confirmed that the set is still in stock at the LEGO stores at Dreamworld on the Gold Coast, Broadway and Westfield Bondi Junction shopping centers in Sydney, and the Stockland shopping center in Townsville. Shoppers who can’t make it to their local LEGO store can order online for click and collect (for up to five days).
If these are too far away from you then head to lego.megabrickstore.com and order your’s online. It’s the same price ($1299.99) as LEGO.com, they can ship anywhere in Australia and New Zealand and the 40483 Luke Skywalker’s Lightsaber gift with purchase is still available. The only downside is that the VIP points don’t line up with the global VIP Rewards program.
Readers may not be aware that the growing number of LEGO stores in Australia are not run by The LEGO Group itself but are co-operative “certified” stores instead. While aren’t connected to the global VIP program it does have the advantage that they have a separate supply chain to those LEGO stores in Europe, China and North America.
