Good luck Brett.
The trouble with sending them is in Australia I can order them but they are double the US pricing.
What I meant with the shipping is that if I go into a LEGO store in America and they have run out of a set they will sell it to me and ship it to my house for free. If you end up in that situation I would at least ask if they can do that, though I doubt that they will it's worth a try.
Looking forward to visiting an actual Lego store
@brickbrett You will love the store and then you will miss it dreadfully when you go home, I'm six hours away now vs 15 minutes last year, it's very hard :(. I do think they will expand into Australia in the not too distant future though.
I have not seen mindstorms sold as individual items though.
Time to find a online trustworthy friend in Las Vegas or San Diego as they are my last places to visit before heading back downunder.
Does the legoland store sell these? I am going there!!
for the help people, but it's not looking great:(
The larger stores do carry Mindstorms, but don't count on it being in stock, it sells out often.
Based on what you're trying to do, you're really shooting yourself in the foot if you don't have an order with [email protected] ready before you arrive, anything else is unlikely to have a happy outcome.
Re: The Ev3, it seems to be in plentiful stock out my way, anyway. Not in danger of selling out yet.
Just make sure you know your room number and the front desk will take it.
I've shipped many sets to hotels for just this reason, usually there is a note attached to the order saying, "need it between x and y date as that is when I'll be there".
Knock on wood, I've never had a problem with it.
It's not just shipping he's trying to avoid. The parts themselves are like 50% more expensive in Australia and I think just getting them at a store here is easier than arranging for someone to order and get them to him so he was attempting to do that.
Thank you all for your advise.
