That's a very impressive train to say the least. Hopefully I'll start getting lots of money from somewhere so I can buy it. On the flipside, there's still a lot of stuff I need to buy to complete my LEGO city, and then there's the MOCs I want to put in it.

I might buy a 2nd myself jigsaw although still haven't bought the emerald night yet >< What are the chances that any of the major retailers will stock this new 10233 anyway? I mean I never once saw the Maersk in Myer or DJ's (if someone else has please correct me)

I wonder what else awaits in the 2013 train line up ^_^

I got my Maersk set from Galaxy Toys.....imported into the country....so no it was never on order at Myer's or DJ's (David Jones gets very little in the way of Lego exclusives - about 1 per year).
As for 2013, in the first half of the year no other train stuff apart from the orange beauty....as far as I know. legowink

Hi All,

I tend to use this site more for local aussie content rather than breaking news, the bigger sites will nearly always beat us to it.

If we get these at retail, it will probably be in limited numbers as an exclusive like Myer got the EN. All the exclusive sets have to be specially negotiated for the Australian market since we don't have a LEGO store here.

I want at least 2 of these, and since the TGV runs with 8 car consists probably 3, if I can afford it. I still haven't bought myself the Maersk train though so it could be a while till I get them. Oh and there's a town hall and another GE on the wish list .... and I still want a couple of Diagon Alleys ... and the joust set ... it never ends legosmile2

yep... it never ends! LOL. just as you start grinding down the list of stuff thats available now, and then try to chase up the old sets, they keep bringing great new stuff out to throw our plans off the rails!

i dont own any train sets (yet).. but i was in europe in april and travelled by high speed rail all over the place. riding on a TGV was a childhood dream that i fulfilled. i cannot wait to actually own one on the bookshelf once and for all

i hope they make a decent ICE train in the future as well

I have been also told two sets should be used to make it a complete train.
Oh, dear my poor old wallet ! legolaugh

Hopefully if it's Myer only they will release it at a bargain price on the first day (like they did the Combi) In which case we will need to be there when the doors open on the first day of sale because it will be sold out by 2hours time (no kidding I'm afraid)
