As Ace rightly guessed over at FBTB, Amazon.com has followed the lead of another store and discounted 10188 Death Star 15%, which works out to $60 off ($340 instead of $400).
With free shipping and no tax in most states, it’s a pretty sweet deal (if you don’t balk at $340 on a four-year-old LEGO set, but your mileage may vary).
As you may recall, the Internet has been swooning over this set for more than four years now, making 10188 Death Star one of the longest-lived LEGO Star Wars sets in history. With most LEGO sets now on the shelves for no more than two years (many for only a fleeting few months), this might be your last chance to pick up this iconic set.
EDIT: Bob notes in the comments that 10212 Imperial Shuttle is also on sale, 19% or $50 off.
Adding to the LEGO Star Wars sets that are 30% off, Amazon.com has just discounted most of the LEGO Lord of the Rings line as well.
Here’s the list:
Some of the discounts have dropped or ended since I got Amazon’s email this morning, so this one might not last as long as the Star Wars sets.
And unfortunately, these may only be available to our US readers. (We’ll have something cool for people in more places in a couple of days.)
LEGO Star Wars sets are usually excluded from sales at brick-and-mortar stores, so sales at Amazon.com and other online retailers are always a pleasant surprise.
All of the following sets are 30% off:
7962 Anakin’s & Sebulba’s Podracers is also discounted by 22%, saving you $20 on a $90 set
These deals tend to be pretty dynamic, so if you’ve been waiting for these sets to go on sale, now’s the time to act.
As always, The Brothers Brick receives a percentage of the sales when you click through from here, and we use that money to pay for server costs (not insubstantial with a global audience), buy prizes to give away during BrickCon and other events, and generally give back to the community.
The LEGO Shop online continues its Black Friday deals through Cyber-Monday, enabling all you procrastinators out there (or those of you who were traveling, like me) to get in on the shopping action.
Although the special holiday set has run out, here’s what you get through midnight EST today:
- Free shipping on all orders of $49 or more
Free Limited Edition Holiday set featuring Santa Minifigure with orders of $99 or more
- 10% off all orders of $149 or more
- 25% off a bunch of sets (list below)
The LEGO Shop isn’t the only place you’ll find deals. Amazon.com also has a bunch of Cyber-Monday deals, including 7066 Earth Defence HQ for $12 off (along with more I don’t have time to link to before I rush out the door for work).
Amazon.com keeps dropping the price of the recently released LEGO Architecture set 21010 Robie House. At the moment, it’s 32% off, for a savings of $64.
Price was one of the big complaints when this was released, so quit complainin’ and get shoppin’! Looks like it’ll make a great dark red parts pack.
Between BrickCon and my birthday, October has been a great LEGO month for me for the last few years, but it looks like the rest of you out there can share in the joy with a plethora of LEGO sales throughout the month.
First off, LEGO.com is offering double VIP points for the full month of October, and it looks like all magnets are 50% off.
The new holiday set 10222 Winter Village Post Office has just been released.
And in case you missed it, 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van is also out.
Not to be outdone by TRU’s Bricktober (which we won’t be supporting since they dropped FBTB, TBB, and Brickset all at once with no explanation a while back), Amazon.com has heavily discounted several large sets, starting with 7965 Millennium Falcon at 25% off, or $105.
25% off is nice, but Amazon has several more at 30% off, including 7066 Earth Defence HQ and 2507 Fire Temple.
Finally, if you’re in the UK, October 8th brings free LEGO sets from The Sun.
The latest addition to LEGO’s line of Advent Calendars, LEGO Star Wars 7958 Advent Calendar, is now available! It features 8 minifigures (Santa Yoda anyone?), a mini X-Wing, mini Millennium Falcon, and 14 other Star Wars or Christmas-related mini-models. It is priced at US$39.99, which is comparable to the other advent calendars. Better pick up a couple of these for yourself and the Star Wars fans in your life.
Seasonal LEGO sets can be hard to find if you miss the narrow window in time when they’re available, so it’s nice to get a chance to pick them up again if time got away from you the first time around. Thankfully, Amazon.com seems to have found a batch of 10199 Creator Winter Toy Shop sets buried in their warehouse.
Sure, we’re four months away from Christmas, but I doubt you’ll get a chance to complete your LEGO holiday town again, so pick them up while they’re still available online.
