Pick-A-Brick Australia

edited October 2011 in Collecting
Gday all - I was wondering whilst living in Brisbane, Australia - if there is any PAB stores in Australia, (hopefully within walking distance haha). As it is to buy bulk I really only have BrickLink (which is limited at best) or get f#sted ordering from [email protected] with the $30+ postage....
I have recently found Mooreed.com.au @ South Bank but that is very limited.
Any help would be great although I hold my head low in anticipation haha

    Haha, I'm with you there. Check this out, a bit out of the way and I haven't been, but I'm keen to go check it out one day.

    Hate to disappoint but that's not a PAB. You can only do that thru their Bricklink store....

    There is a store in South Bank that I've just found but yet to check out -
    www.mooreed.com.au
    It's near the Convention Centre, I'll let you know how it turns out

    I go to the TAFE right across the road, so I frequent it fairly regularly. Nothing really exciting. Mainly the education packs which are useless to me, they have sets, but they are either bang on or just above RRP. So, I don't think they sell a lot. They do stock some cool mechandise, (keyrings, calendars, even wrapping paper). But it's all pretty expensive.

    Have you considered asking the manager there for a discount in exchange for a larger purchase?

    Sometimes they can, sometimes they can't, but it can't hurt. If you were to offer to buy 10 sets, he might well give you 20% or more off each one if you ask nicely, or catch him on a day he needs sales.

    Or perhaps he doesn't care or can't, it is just an idea. :)

    @LegoFanTexas this is a bit OT but www.bricksdownunder.com.au keeps track of the Aussie sales, it's like the Bible of sales here :D

    Either that or Outer Rim Trading Co. :)

    ^ Yes, but they have been a bit slack recently.

    Yeah it's run by Em, who's doing exams lately, just follow the forum (comments on the right), they're more up to date :)

    Ordering LEGO Parts

    To see the Full List of LEGO parts available you need to click on the BrickLink site below. There you will see a comprehensive range of parts and kits available. To order parts you need to be a member of the BrickLink community, or you can send me an email and I will order the parts for you.
    Payment is usually needed before the parts are ordered. All parts are available in the shop also so if you have the time you can come and look for the parts you wants.

    Yeah Gary Quinlan is the store owner :)
