    I'll answer my own question. I was skeptical about the store but the Lego was prepared after I ordered it last night and shipped this morning.

    Let us know how your order goes, they have a few sets decently priced that I'd be interested in if they deliver without stuffing you around.

    Ohh man OzBargain has been coughing up the sales hasnt it?

    I picked up the Mustang today from Myer sale luckily as I saw it late but could still do it through Click & Collect.

    Must.. stop buying Lego.. really want that Rollercoaster though (current price with that discount is crazy).

    Summer releases have started showing up on S@H, along with reviews elsewhere.
    42099 4X4 X-treme Off-Roader $380
    42098 Car Transporter $270
    42097 Compact Crawler Crane $160

    42099 has some super exciting new parts aside from the new motors/control system. New steerable portal hub with ~5.5:1 reduction and heavier duty CV joints.
    42098 looks good with an equally appealing B model combo.
    Also on the way is a a new 28 tooth double bevel gear, matching the input gear on the differential; with this it'll be possible to build 4WD systems with a permanently locked rear and an open front diff.
    Surprise new set due around October when 42100 Liebherr R 9800 drops is 42110 Land Rover Defender, 2575 pieces and ~$300, 4WD, independent suspension, sequential 4 speed, winch.

    Have they said what the transporter will hold in terms of car size? As in you can use some existing sets on the transporter? Because that would be a cool way to display

    WHY DID NO ONE TELL ME THIS!! We have a 2015 Defender and are super keen on the new one. This set interestingly looks like it's based on the new model.

    Rumor from January was same as 42093 Corvette, top deck of the trailer looks like 17 studs between side rails so that matches but creator expert cars will be too big.
    Apparently is.

    Shop at Home, the official online store, maybe they've stopped calling it that though?

    Got some new sets recently from someone who was clearing out lego

    10187 Lego Beetle from 2008 - $400 new - a holy grail set I thought I'd never get. I love the look of this more than the newer beetle, something about the old school studs makes it look great.
    10234 Opera House - $250 new
    10144 Sandcrawler from 2005 - $250 new. I love the look of the old Sandcrawler version. Even the box art is impressive.

    Some recent orders to Myer which I hope don't get cancelled

    10262 Aston Martin DB5 - $143
    10265 Mustang - $135

    Now I'm just missing the London Bus.

    Nah it's an exclusive, anyone else is reselling retail stock.
    edit:
    That's the first reasonable price for the DB5 I've seen.
    Harley Fatboy out next month too.

    Rick James Bricks in Pakenham VIC have it, but only instore (Lunar Lander that is). They get their stuff direct from Lego.

    Not really into bikes, and I'm disappointed there's no chrome so probably give it a miss unless it drops to some stupid value on sale

    Finished my Rough Terrain Crane last night and it is an incredible set. It's very detailed, works quite smooth and is enormous (it's actually 1m tall when fully extended). I can't recommend it enough.
