    I don't think you are allowed to say "Lego style". Lego's trademark ninjas are about to burst through your windows.

    • +11 votes

      No it's okay, the patent or whatever on these bricks expired decades ago. The Chinese companies got in trouble for copying newer sets or trying to pass off as being actual lego, lego logo trademarks, etc. Everything you see on that truck is a copy of classic bricks that are basically public domain nowadays.

        LEGO is a brand name though.

        And to the OP, a lot of people have alerts for LEGO so if you post non-lego stuff and use the name 'lego' you are certainly going to attract a lot of attention… from people looking for actual LEGO.

        • +17 votes

          And I have alerts for Photo Paper, yet most of the emails I get have nothing to do with photos or even paper. I think the lego collectors will learn to deal with it. Lego style is the only way to accurately describe this, the bricks are near perfect clones of standard lego bricks, except they don't have the word "lego" printed on the nipples.

          I think your comment just triggered their alerts 5 times!

        If you really want to trigger them go into a post for a Lego set and post a link for the knock off copy on Aliexpress.

    Wow, they even got the Lego pricing right too…

      now we'll just have to see they have the lego quality right

    Shocking price per part ratio for KO blocks…

      And no minifig in a Bunnings uniform, missed opportunity.

        They couldn't make the minifig look retired enough.

    Why is full priced goods designed as advertising being posted? This in no way constitutes a bargin. Xboxes I can understand given their supply deficit, but come on …

    • +23 votes

      According to mods there are no rules against posting items at full RRP or even Above RRP.

      Apparently the community decides what a bargain is with the voting system.

      • +11 votes

        Bargain is in the eye of beholder

        • -4 votes

          incorrect. bargain is in the price below rrp.

      •  

        Generally negative votes aren't allowed based on the communities opinion, so this isn't typically the case at all.

        Edit: I support all negative votes.

    • +14 votes

      "Seeing as RRP items are more and more making it to the front page" is no excuse to add to the pollution.

      And as has been said the pricing on this thinly veiled piece of advertising is poor

      (added on edit) And a "hello" to the predictably anonymous neg brigade

        agreed, the "well everyone else is posting non-bargains" comment pushed me over the line to downvote this deal

          It's diluting the purpose of the website.

      Perhaps you should create a list of all the items that can and cannot be listed as per their RRP?

    So Bunnings sells toys now?

      They always did, lawnmower, chainsaw, weedwhacker…

    yeah RRP deals are not a bargain

        I shall sook off elsewhere tail between my legs

      • +11 votes

        I agree bargains are relative and the relativity comes down to demand and stock. eg. PS5 & Xbox Series X.

        I wouldn't consider this a bargain due to it's assumed availability in which case this is a Forum-based PSA.

    • +2 votes

      Maybe it could be considered a bargain if these were collector items or limited stock items, which could be hard to find later on.

      •  

        yeah my guess is they have millions produced, doubt its limited in any way
        i can still order the bunnings warehouse and this
        post new articles and ozbargain
        means they have HEAPS lolz

    How are they allowed to even make this shit?

    This ain't no bargain, and I doubt they will be in low enough supply like the latest consoles.

    Awesome! My kids will love these and love collecting them! Another reason to involve my kids into my projects! Thanks OP. Had no idea.

    Not a bargain. Rubbish product.

      So why the upvote?

      It's a regular truck. Not a rubbish truck.

        Ba-dum-tsss!

    I like how in the product description it says "Scaled down model of a Bunnings Truck" - is that in case someone is expecting it to be full sized?

    • +1 vote

      well, there is always someone who might say they were mislead into believing that, and then starting a lawsuit. It reminds me of cookie packages in the us. You have the cooke package in your hand, you can feel and see how big it is, but since the picture of the cookie in the package is BIG, they add a little message at the bottom that reads enlarged to show detail (here: https://c.shld.net/rpx/i/s/i/spin/10127449/prod_ec_206301120...)

      Its like labelling "Serving Suggestion" on a box of water crackers in case idiots think it also contains brie, cheese knife and wooden serving platter like in the picture.

    Considering the blatant advertising they should be paying me $10 to take one.

    I remember watching Lego Masters, where the expert said one of the things that need to be considered when making models is the scale. Sure, they're not Lego, but he's right - it shits me that the building is tiny compared to these add-ons (e.g. this truck looks about the same height as the building model). Also annoys me how all the graphics are stickers which are of poor quality - and which span multiple pieces which looks crap.

    My sister gave me one of the buildings as a joke Christmas present - and I'm surprised how crappy the quality is… I've bought knock-off Lepin sets from China which are much better than these!

    • +3 votes

      yeah im with you, the best part about lego is the scale. making a truck taller/same height to the building is just not a well executed product range.

    •  

      Well the LEGO City have the correct scale, but some others may not. For example, BB-8 vs D-O.

  • +5 votes

    I am curious has anyone seen this Bunnings truck on road?

    •  

      Since when has Lego applied that principle ?
      Bunnings don't want to pay royalties to some truck manufacture so they can pocket more for themselves :)

    • +20 votes

      I doubt you would even notice it on road, it's only 140mm high.

        HAHAHAHAHAHA

        coffee went up my nose lol

      That's what I thought. They don't even exist!

      The stuff must arrive like magic, in the night. It's almost like the Wonka factory, nobody ever goes in, and NOBODY EVER COMES OUT!

      Yes, in NZ - search Google Images (most are these models!).

    "117 pieces which can be combined with most other brands"

    I assume they mean Lepin and the other knock-off brands Kmart keeps stocking to fill the empty shelves.

    • +1 vote

      Or is it compatible with other brands like those that rhyme with Schmego?

    Will wait for the lego Bunnings snag house.

    18cm width? That's huge, no?

      I think she'd agree.

      Must be the overall box dimensions, no way it's that big looking at the pieces in the graphic render. Unless they were duplo size lol.

    Oh the horrors… and it even uses STAMPS

    •  

      What's the reason for your negative vote?

  • +3 votes

    Since an Xbox at RRP is considered a deal I will upvote this one too. As just like an Xbox these are also often in short supply and I intend on buying one.

    Also trigger alert. Some sensitive people may find this comment overly offensive.

        Is that the variety that tries to force you to wear a mask in the carpark or the variety that refuses to wear a mask in the store?
