Disclosure - I work at the Warehouse

All clearance Lego is 50% off at The Warehouse, not sure how long for.
Some of the clearance lines are from Star Wars, Chima and TMNT.

Some examples...
Star Wars AT-AP RRP $129.99, bought this for $47.49
Ninjago Nindroid Mechdragon RRP $149.99, bought this for $40
Star Wars B-Wing RRP $109.99, bought this for $39.99

Around Christchurch I saw other Lego Star Wars products and quite a few Ninja Turtles ones too (eg Turtle Lair Invasion).
Keep a lookout in your local store for older looking Lego as well - you might get lucky and find an old piece.

looking online, sounds like you paid the "savings" instead of the "price after savings"":)

This should be posted on 'Children Toy' section or 'under 12s'.

I know this feeling. The technic lego "gift" I got one xmas just about killed me. I did spend an hour or so just admiring the mechanical elegance of the diff though.

As an aside, this was the first technic I'd had in a while. I really didn't like the "sideways" construction. It makes it almost impossible to build your own stuff with it (at least it did for me).

Also to those in Christchurch, the Brick Show is on right now at the Horncastle Arena, only $5 entry. Some great displays, my two favorites being the Legoracle fortune teller, and the massive pirate ship display.

I can only stand about 3 hours at a time before I need to take a break.

Only got it because I had left over money from my holiday :)

I just picked up the Lego Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina from The Warehouse under this special for $54, normal retail is $150.

There are B-Wing, Droid Ship and Mos Eisley Cantina at Warehouse Northlands (Christchurch) if anyone is looking.

You mean the Lego displays or the guys in uniform? I saw a couple of stormtroopers and Boba Fett around the area, my kids always like to see those at various events.

Also voted for one of the Star Wars builds, a battle scene someone had set up. I'm trying to convince my kids to do something similar next year.
Our collection is very mixed up but I think we have enough of some sets to do a display of some sort.


I just found a Youtube video by the creators of the Legoracle:
