Where to buy Lego Mindstorms NXT
It’s not always easy to get hold of the Lego Mindstorms kit in Australia.
The only barrier to entry I put on the school robotics group I run is that each child should provide their own kit. And each year parents run about trying to get hold of one with varying degrees of success.
Big W has them in stock for the substantial price of $450, which is the same as the Lego store itself. Right now, though, there are a few kits available via Ebay – with the cost in the low- to mid-$300s – which appears to be a much better deal.
UPDATE APRIL 2013: IT’S ALL CHANGED, SEE – LEGO MINDSTORMS PLAYS HARD TO GET IN AUSTRALIA

Hi I’ve been trying to find Mindstorms EV3 in Sydney. So far only the big HC store in the QVB. Are there other options?
