    So I bought the Saturn v finally today. $150 from Myer. I know it may have been cheaper elsewhere, but every time I’ve gone to buy it it’s been out of stock. MYER Albury had two of them in stock ready for sale, so got one straight away. Literally walked around Myer for an hour holding it while I searched for what I actually needed.

    I doubt I would have remembered why I was there at all..... unless I was there for the UCS Falcon. Speaking of which, that site linked above by Monsieur Bastardo had the UCS Falcon for 10% off..... why the fuck did I pay the mortgage early like a responsible adult? :p

    Haven't started it yet. Haven't even finished my damn London Bus. So not cool. I just don't have the motivation to do it now... :(

    looks like general availability online. I got the saturn V at the chaddy shop almost release day, and when it was pre/back orders online only so worth a try.

    Ooohh... Voltron!

    I went to Legoland Malaysia last week with my 7yo daughter. She loved it, and it was her first go at some reasonable "scary" rides. They had a few Chiron sets there, and I was tempted! But damn, that thing is pricey... I'll wait 'till I find it on sale for 20% off...

    Z...

    I very badly want the Chiron. Right now though, I've got a bad habit of hoarding lego and not finishing it... :(

    I'm still yet to fully finish my London Bus, and I've got the Saturn 5 sitting there waiting... :(

    I probably misread the e-mail I got saying it was special for VIP members. As long as you got it then all is good :).

    Voltron got delivered home today.
    Mobile crane has been dispatched.

    But I'm in hospital for maybe another week.

    Have some speed chanpions here to fill in some time, especially since I'm chewing through telstra data.

    Hope my Voltron comes today too, looks like miserable weather this weekend so will be a good excuse to stay inside.

    Has anyone ordered via Bricklink since the GST has kicked in on imported goods? I'm wondering how it plays out? Does the seller (or Bricklink?) charge the GST and it'll sail on through customs without issue?

    There are unlikely to be many if any BL sellers trading more than $75,000 per annum to australians. And that's if they even cared about registering with the ATO. I doubt even bricksy is that internationally commercialised outside the EU.
