Singapore Only: Update on March & April Arrivals

Hey, thanks to Alvin n Rekseah¬†for the heads up. ūüôā

March Arrivals

So the sets have already arrived or are arriving in Singapore stores this week depending on the usual delivery schedule, so you can head over to your favourite stores this week for some retail therapy.¬† Here’s the full list of March arrivals taken off ToyStation’s email:

LEGO City

  • 3365 Space Moon Buggy
  • 3366 Satellite Launch Pad
  • 3367 Space Shuttle
  • 3368 Space Center

LEGO Games

  • 3852 Sunblock
  • 3853 Banana Balance
  • 3854 Frog Rush
  • 3855 Ramses Return
  • 3856 LEGO Ninjago

LEGO DUPLO

  • 5945 Winnie The Pooh‚Äôs Picnic
  • 5946 Tigger‚Äôs Expedition
  • 5947 Winnie The Pooh‚Äôs House

LEGO Pharaoh’s Quest

  • 7305 Scarab Attack
  • 7306 Golden Staff Guardians
  • 7307 Flying Mummy Attack
  • 7325 Cursed Cobra Statue
  • 7326 Rise Of The Sphinx
  • 7327 Scorpion Pyramid

LEGO Technic

  • 8070 Supercar

Quick computation n the LEGO Games pricing is fairly reasonable after 20% discount off local price.¬† SunBlock n Banana Balance is a little pricier, but not worth the trouble of shipping in¬†& risking damaged boxes.¬† Supercar is still a shocking S$36 more even after 20% discount locally tho…

So far I’ve heard that¬†the sets are already¬†at BricksWorld, ToyStation & Metro (dunno which branch tho).¬†

And BricksWorld’s member specials for March/April are:

  • 3368 Space Center @ $103.90 (20%)
  • 5947 Winnie The Pooh‚Äôs House @ $55.90 (20%)
  • 8099 Midi Scaled Imperial Star Destroyer @ $77.31 (10%)
  • 8864 Desert of Destruction @ $187.11 (10%)

Don’t understand the last 2 since members get 10% off anyway, so what’s so special about the pricing??

Ok, and on to….

April Arrivals

Some good news and some bad news here.

The good? 10217 Diagon Alley and 8804 Collectible¬†Minifig Series 4 are arriving in April! Yay!¬† And no price increase in Series 4 figs, so it’s S$3.90 each or $234 for a box of 60.

The bad? The price for DA is shockingly disgustingly bad. So bad that I feel like boycotting getting any sets locally. It’s S$319.90 vs US$149.90.¬† Before discount, the diff is like S$125!! S$125???! It’s like… WTF… (hey, I assume you are all adult readers and I’ve had a pretty crappy day at work… if you are offended, pls stop reading)

Even after a 20% discount, the price is still a weltering S$255.92, or S$61 more… considering that I need like 2 more… may even work out cheaper shipping in from the USA.

Singapore Only: March Arrivals

Thanks to UltramanBC from the S0937 forum, we have the prices for the March arrivals (dunno when is the exact arrival tho).

Hmm… you can see the comparison and judge yourself… makes me glad I’d already ordered from BN at 10%/30% off US prices for some of the larger sets.¬†¬†I’ve a feeling this makes for a very expensive month for the army builders.¬†ūüėȬ†

Some Videos to Enjoy & a bit of News

A collection of¬†designer video for the Maersk Train, LEGO City Space in-store ad, DK video of the world record breaking¬†Star Wars mosiac event last Oct, and a LEGO Comic Builder Demo video.¬† Hope that’s something for everyone.¬† Scroll below to see the videos…

Akunthita (aka TheBrickBlogger)¬†shares news of a new FaceBook-like¬†site for LEGO fans. I had a look but since I’m not into FB, I’m not really into the whole concept.¬† But I can imagine it being popular with FB-ers.¬†Check out Brick Li.me to decide yourself.¬†

Hmm… and Star Wars fans, you may be interested to get a sneak peek at the 2012 Star Wars packaging as reported on StarWars.com. Darth Maul looks fierce!
