US Toy Retailer Toys R Us recently expanded their market share to international countries, allowing most of their stock (including most Lego sets) to be shipped overseas.
While ToysRUS has a dubious reputation for marking up the price of most of their Lego sets, especially the exclusive ones, this change in their shipping restrictions gives overseas customers access to a number of sets that are either over priced in our own country or simply unavailable.
Shipping is relatively cheap, around $20 per set, but considering you can purchase a set like the UCS Imperial Shuttle for under $260 and only pay $20 shipping that is a great deal for this large set (try shipping it anywhere within Australia for under $20!).
Other sets to consider:
- Maersk Train
- Millennium Falcon
- Harry Potter Diagon Alley
- Exclusive sets like Star Wars Hoth Base & Super Heroes Dynamic Duo Fun House
