Very few sets remain Lego shop at home exclusives for their entire run, but you may have to wait a while depending on demand. Also with the demise of TRU there may be disruption to the normal retail channel.

If you're looking at acquiring this one in the near term it's probably best to buy online. You do get the VIP points and any freebie they may have going at the time to soften the deal.

Yeah you may need to get in quick for the Hogwarts Express particularly. According to brickingaround, it was to be a TRU exclusive, and may not hit retail here for some months.

Yeah I don't think they'll be in retail for a little while, and the Hogwarts Express was a TRU exclusive, so may take longer to appear elsewhere (and may not be on the shelves in the majors at all).

On the plus side, Big W has a 20% off toy sale starting tomorrow, there may be some good bargains there as Big W's regular prices on many items are lower than RRP to start with.

Yeah if it goes the same way as the Porsche, when it hits retail here it could be discounted - Porsche RRP was $500, now readily available for $400, sometimes less. If you're happy to wait, that may be the best option.

It didn't look like the new Technic were on sale, but that may change. There are some detailed reviews of all of then on YouTube if you're interested. The front end loader is a Volvo concept model, looks cool.

I think Big W have adjusted their prices online now and the new Technic stuff is showing as 20% off. Would like to get the lot, but I suspect will just settle for the forklift for now ;)

Oh this is no good, I didn't know about the new red crane
List is way to long now
Aston
Mack truck
Forklift
Red crane
Volvo bucket
Mega Hogwarts
And that's not even all the smaller cool stuff yet

Might chuck some on layby with the 20% off....you get ten weeks to pay at least

We should do reviews on utube, might get sent some freebies from Lego promotions
