With Toyworld letting Australians have access to the Lego Death Star 10188 set this October for an unsensational $699 (yes that is sarcasm you detect), it is a great relief to hear that Fishpond.com.au now have the set available for $499 delivered.
With a retail of $699 + delivery on Lego Shop Online and overseas deals having to incorporate aver $100 worth of shipping into their final price this is about a good a deal as Australians can expect to have for this very cool set – undoubtedly the most coveted of the Lego Star Wars sets.
I don’t know how long this offer will last so if you are sitting on the fence (still) then look further into it on the Fishpond website.
Thanks to TheDarkness over at Eurobricks for the heads up.

It is a good deal, but I have found Fishpond to be excruciatingly slow in delivering. They may say they have something in stock, but then you pay for it and won’t receive it for months. Be warned! Check the Facebook page for comments by other people.
I’m inclined to agree with you.
The listing said the set would ship within 24 hours and that was 4 days ago – no email yet from them to confirm.
It’s frustrating that an online retailer so dominant in Australia and New Zealand is doing such a consistently bad job.
They could learn alot from Amazon.
