    You are better off contacting LEGO directly if it is a very high number. They are happy to fill large personal orders if you ask.

    The limits might be a problem. I might have to order through a few different accounts. :Pirate:

    The times don't stress me. This is purely for personal reasons, so no stress there.

    This week marks the 50th year since Lego first arrived in Australia, when a British travelling sales rep by the name of John Peddie arrived in 1962 with a suitcase full of lego.

    After a lot of rejections by stores, who said that Australian children preferred to play outside, he finally got a Sydney department store to sell them, and so it began...

    God bless those fat lazy Australian children of the 60's for abandoning the outdoors, paving the way for other indoor pursuits, like monopoloy, and then computer games:lol:

    Amen brother!

    And some more useless trivia; Norfolk Island was the cheapest place to buy Lego.

    I think they have sales taxes on now though don't they? I remember asking my boss about it as he travels to Norfolk once or twice a year for work and he said the laws had changed in the last couple of years.

    Yeah, it had since changed hence 'was'. Haven't been there myself, wouldn't mind going at some point.

    Is there any chance that anyone ever took photos at Lego shows in Brisbane around 20 years ago? Actually, it doesn't specifically need to be Brisbane as I'd imagine that the display went around the country. I'm after any photos of what the castle stuff looked like. It was shown as part of the minifig displays after the main theme of the show.

    hmmm - was looking at options and couldn't find some stuff in the earlier 100 or so pages.

    Have people looked at buildandplay.com.au for pricing?

    If so, and remembering I am close enough to Burwood for pickup, what do you think given the exorbitant prices you find on ebay for some sets?

    thanks

    edit: sorry about that long list before - it was rather crude, so I worked on brickset -

    Looks like buildandplay have a default 25% off, so good value IMHO! When/if they get the Technic sets in I'm looking for, I'll order :)

    Both sets are immaculate and come with everything. By that i mean , the box, mint instructions, all stickers (unused), and sails (never used) as well as all the plastic bags the blocks came in (which have been neatly cut open).

    PM me if anyone is interested.

    Nice trailer! Good that the digger fits on it - or did you design it that way?
