LEGO Mindstorms plays hard to get in Australia
It’s now pretty much impossible to buy LEGO Mindstorms kits in Australia.
LEGO Australia have made a deliberate decision to stop importing the kits. A new version is due out in the Northern Hemisphere’s Autumn and so they are running down stocks. Given the new version wont launch in Australia until September at the earliest that makes for an inconvenient gap.
The official LEGO store is no longer selling the kits to Australia; although they remain available in the USA if you have any way of buying there. There are also stores in the USA, Toys’R’Us for example, that seem to still be selling Mindstorms NXT 2.0 and some will ship internationally.
Finally, of course, there’s Ebay.

I bought the LEGO Mindstorm EV3 for a uninterested younger brother, who hasn’t so much as looked at it since it was delivered. If anyone is interested in buying a totally 100% new, untouched Mindstorm, please let me know. Bought off EBAY, located in Sydney.
Howdy, if you still have the Ev3 untouched I’d be interested
Sorry, I sold it a few days after posting this!
