Shopping in Malaysia

PaperballparkPaperballpark UK / KLMember Posts: 3,486
I'm currently out in Malaysia, and today we went to a shopping centre in KL with a Lego store. The Lego Group themselves don't run any stores out here, so I'm guessing the ones that are here (there's about 4 or 5) are effectively franchised.

Prices aren't too much different to UK RRP, although it depends on the sets. Bearing in mind there's about 5.4 rm to the pound, small PAB tubs are 50.40rm, which is about £9.35! I still got one though, despite the relative lack of variety.

They wouldn't accept my VIP card - they have a 'VIB' card instead. I didn't ask what the benefits are!

Overall quite decent, and not the massive mark-up I was expecting, but the PAB wall was disappointing - especially for the price!

    Another day, another shopping centre! And another Lego store. Just a small PAB wall in this one, and although there was a couple of bits I haven't seen before (2x3 red wedge plates) I wasn't going to pay £9 for a tub just for them!

    Interesting. Did you take pics of the PAB wall?

    No. I figured they wouldn't be of any use to anyone here! ;)

    I visit Malaysia a couple of times a year. I think I recognise one of those shops as the one in Gardens called Box of Bricks. What's the other one?

    The first is in Pavillion, the second is in KLCC.

    They do have ToysRUs in Malaysia. May be worth looking at.

    Yeah I noticed that. I'm only really interested in the PAB walls though.

    Hi, just noticed this post!

    The VIB system works similarly to the VIP system (I have both), but with one big difference. With VIB, you pretty much accumulate points only on what you spend on full-price items.

    RM1 spent -> 1 point; 100 points -> RM5 discount

    Legoland Malaysia has 50% off all Star Wars sets until 3 Nov. Even UCS sets like the new ISD...
