    20% off at Hobby Warehouse with PMUM20 code. Bought Brick Bank 10251 for $159.84 including postage. Pretty good deal and a set I've been wanting for under 200 clams for a while now.

    Have bought 3 sets from them before (Minecraft Bigfigs) and been very happy with the postage (fast) and pricing.

    Other sets I noticed which seemed well priced:

    Mack Anthem 42078 $157.92
    Voltron 21311 $214.16
    Mini Cooper 10242 $100.72
    Cargo Train 60198 $175.88
    Bugatti Charon 42083 $424.00

    all inclusive of post.

    I've got a few of them, including 924, 6927, 6881, and a couple of others I can't remember the numbers of...

    I'll never let them go.

    I'd love some light kits but don't have any. I find them way overpriced for Lego. It is essentially some LED's from China - the mark up is crazy.

    Ordered a Porsche 42096 911 from iwantoneofthose.com for $176 shipped

    Anyone here from Brisbane ? have previously been to a shop Bricks n Fun in Capalaba earlier this year, and found that the range of lego wasn't too bad but priced at full retail or in a lot of cases even a lot more ! needless we did not buy anything.
    Took the kids along to the Brisbane Model Trian expo last weekend, and this shop was selling lego at the expo, they had the new Disney series of minifigs available but were asking $15.00 for the Mickey & Minnie ! with such blatant profiteering how can a business like that survive ?

    Exactly. It's a fibre optic loop with some coloured plastic and a price of $80.

    Does anyone here have the rollercoaster? I saw one in Scotland and it looked awesome.

    Thought about it, but far too big to display. I've avoided big sets which aren't based off an existing IP or license so giving the rollercoaster a miss. I do really Hogwarts Castle and Disney Castle though. I'm sure Hogwarts will have more sales, Disney is no where to be seen and RRP is high.

    Mines already on the way :)
    Started The Upside Down the other night, bought it blind and a bit disappointed once again a set like that and with that price point has stickers not printed parts.
    Also have my bargain Chiron waiting to be built once I figure which mods it'll need, finished the parts built 8043 motorized excavator last week and the ongoing list of mods, remods and a moc. Plus the new releases in August...

    If it is anything like the GT3 - a lot of the cool stuff was hidden away when assembled, and getting the bodywork off the chassis was a difficult task. There is a mod that changes a few parts and makes removing the body from the chassis a 4 step (I think) process, as opposed to a 40 step process...

    Main ones I'm planning to implement are scattered around the mod thread on eurobricks. Gearbox end locks to stop 8th to 1st and 1st to 8th changes, modified gearbox with less meshing elements to reduce backlash and stiffer front suspension to reduce sag.
    Other common changes are HOG steering, visual gear selection indicators that some double as HOG gear selectors, door hinge stiffening, door locks, front bonnet remodeling, wing adjustment changes.
    I did a removable body on the 911, from memory the main bits were I mounted the seats to the door sills and changed some dash mounting pins to axle/pin combos. Didn't reinsert the body attachment pins (3L red with bush?) and can just lift the body off the chassis whenever I want.

    Edit:
    No removable body possible on the chiron.
