    it shows$179to me?

  •  

    OP can you advice which sets are on clearance? As from my end I can’t see any set on clearance.

  •  

    Still see $179 online?
    And for pickup in Vic

  •  

    179 online for me too. Got a direct link?

  •  

    $99 for me. Store set to Brisbane. Thanks!

  •  

    $99 for me, I'm in NSW if that makes a difference.

  •  

    I just clicked on the set and added it to my cart everywhere says $99 to me

  •  

    weird. I tried all different way still showing $179 to me

    •  

      Go incognito, turn off location detection and set your location to Bankstown. It'll turn to $99 quick smart.

      Then change the click and collect to your local.

      Worked fine.

  •  

    It looks like you need to set a store location before the discounted price is displayed.

  •  

    Can confirm, you need to add to cart and then the price updates

  •

      So I figured a workaround, try open your browser in incognito mode and block "allow location sharing". Then set your location to NSW (I used Penrith).
      Load the Slave I page and add to cart, it should come up with $99.
      When in the checkout page you just edit your pickup or delivery location to where ever you would like (I set mine as Doncaster VIC) and continue to payment as normal for $99.

      PS: Also don't forget to use Shopback 5% off wish eGift cards as well!

      You don't have to wish. Just take screenshot and post via a free image upload service. Like so

    •  

      Edit: They cancelled my order today as they couldn't find any when their internal system said they had 5. Waiting on word from their customer support for a solution.

    Ordered, thanks.

  •  

    Does anyone here own The Upside Down - 75810???

    Looks like a brilliant set for owning and displaying, but I can't see it being re-stocked any time soon.

  •  

    Is it still available? I get $179…

  •  

    whats the difference between this and the ucs one

      The UCS is bigger, has more pieces (about 900 more) and detail.

      And it’s more of a display set rather than play set, which this one is.

      The UCS one looks about as good as a Lego rendition of a Star Wars spacecraft can and is widely-regarded as one of the best UCS sets of all time. It looks static-model good.

      This one looks like the cheap toy that it is.

    I set my location to Brisbane City to get the $99 price then click and collected from my local in northern Victoria

    Bit annoyed, ordered for pickup and got refunded and told there was no stock… After the stock in all the other stores was exhausted.

  •  

    I love lego but I feel the new sets are not as good as the old star wars. My brothers and I use to collect lego then we sold it all…we were stupid lol. But if i do become a lego collector ill buy all the old sets. The new ones just aren't nostalgic and don't look very appealing for some reason…

      I feel the new sets are not as good as the old star wars.

      Yeah you're on your own with that assertion.

      I understand the rose-tinted bias somewhat because I was also into Lego back in the day when the first licensed Star Wars sets were coming out and before I got back into Lego as an adult, I always thought none of these new sets could relive that magical excitement you remembered as a kid, but honestly, there's no comparison between this ugly hunk of crap from back in the day and the UCS Slave I. The evolution of the Slave I sets over the years really shows how far Lego has come.

      Lego Star Wars sets in particular have never looked as detailed, realistic and downright cool as they do currently and the new construction techniques and unique moulds they keep innovating just make the Lego sets of yesteryear look like Duplo.

      •  

        oh no not that ancient! That looks like crap. i meant sets like these ones http://legoiamyourfather.blogspot.com/2015/04/review-6209-sl.... I mainly dislike the new sets because of the mini figure designs. The space ship has a cool design but the mini figures are just not doing it for me

        •  

          That one looked good for its time sure, but it's hard to believe how much Lego has changed in 13 years, that set might as well be from 1986 because nowadays it looks hideous, bordering on being a bad knock-off of Lego. Heck, there are 1980s Lego sets from the Space Police theme (which was a huge favourite of mine as a kid) that objectively look a million times better as spacecraft, like this or this or this but that's because they're not licensed sets but original Lego themes.

          Licensed Lego designs never age well and can only look more primitive with hindsight because they're inevitably striving to be as close to an exact replica of something created by film special effects/CGI, and that only becomes more feasible with time as Lego innovates more and more unique pieces, moulds and construction techniques.

          Original designs don't have inherent accuracy standards to live up to, so I will agree with you that some of Lego's older, original themes and designs probably beat out some of their newer, original themes and designs(which explains why Lego relaunched the Space Police theme in 2009), but when it comes to licensed stuff, even older UCS sets just scratch the surface of what would be possible with modern pieces and construction techniques (though I guess you do need to be familiar with all of the unbelievably extravagant MOCs that AFOLs are putting out there to understand the possibilities of modern Lego).

          The minifigs though are universally better, with more complex and interesting helmets/capes/backpacks/weapons/hairpieces and far, far more detailed printing especially for the reverse of the torso and the legs (including metallic colouring).

          There are a few old-school minifigs that are still highly-prized but honestly, get some new Lego Star Wars sets and you won't take a second-look at your old favourites from back in the day ever again.

          Nostalgia is a cruel mistress.

            @Amar89: Ok to be fair some of the new mini figures are better in terms of design but i feel the majority of the time they add too much detail which ruins the model despite it looking more like the movie. The Retro look to the mini figures are just my kind of thing. That is why they added the 20th anniversary mini figure for fans like me. The majority of the time the new Lego designs are really good in terms of the structure but as i said before the figures don't quite fit in for some reason. Here is a good video that best summarises the slave one sets https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lpZKc9IYAQs

          •  

            @Amar89: oh and also a lot of the new sets are smaller than the old ones for whatever reason…But to be fair some are bigger and have a better design which is the only reason i would buy a new set. But to be honest i would probs buy the new and combine it with the old. But thats just me
