Thanks to CR1233 and PW2002au for pointing out the deal and applying it to the Lego respectively
And don't forget Cashrewards! Thanks Urbancartel3!
Definitely getting one this time!
This better be able to make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs for that price.
WTF almost $1000 for lego…I wonder what the profit margins are
Massive margins, however it is almost 8000 pieces and their largest set.
Lego costs roughly 10 cents (US) per piece.
They're surprisingly consistent price-wise. https://www.wired.com/2014/08/lego-cost/
The knockoff is still AU$370 (when taxed)
That's paying no Lucas/Disney royalties (which would be significant),and it's not packaged as nice into sorted bags and is slightly lower quality brick finish,and China direct low retail margins.
So the margins are probably still normal levels.
Thanks Op, I was saving for a car but bought a couple of these instead.
At least you can build a canoe out of the bricks if you live in the eastern states. Might come in handy.
have you seen Han Solo drives a car?
Damnit, you lost the chance to buy a high yield investment vehicle!
With cashback that’s under $900!
Can we get cashback if we pay with discounted David Jones gift cards? RACQ Rewards have DJ gift cards at 6% off, I imagine that Entertainment Book and other sites will have a similar discount.
Potentially a triple discount!
So if there's a 10% cashback, doesn't that make it $887.25?
Not really. Cashback is calculated on the price ex GST. Therefore:
Shouldn't it be…
974.25 - 88.57 = $885.68?
Sorry, you're right. I should have deducted the Cashback from the GST inc. price. Thanks.

I believe under your logic the final price is $974.25 - $88.57 = $885.68 unless of course there was someway to justify this as a business expense and claim the GST back too!
Still a very tempting price if only I had some space left to display it and didn't have these nagging feelings that I should spend $900 more on necessities than more plastic bricks…
TRS can be your friend ;)
Ok my wife made me use $200 worth of credit card points against it so convinced me I needed it for $685.68. Well that is me kept busy over Christmas but no clue what the hell I will do with it once built!
Do I just click David Jone’s link via cash rewards to receive cash back? I remember using cash rewards for ebay before and never got the cash back.
Myer has $10 back on $100 gift cards at the moment, so price match Myer and take another 10% off?
Same goes for Voltron.
