Hey, thanks to Alvin n Rekseah for the heads up. 🙂
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:
- 3365 Space Moon Buggy
- 3366 Satellite Launch Pad
- 3367 Space Shuttle
- 3368 Space Center
- 3852 Sunblock
- 3853 Banana Balance
- 3854 Frog Rush
- 3855 Ramses Return
- 3856 LEGO Ninjago
- 5945 Winnie The Pooh’s Picnic
- 5946 Tigger’s Expedition
- 5947 Winnie The Pooh’s 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
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’s 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….
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.
