Some of next year’s LEGO Star Wars sets are out a couple weeks early on Amazon.com. They’ve also discounted a bunch more LEGO sets.
First up, 75005 Rancor Pit comes with Luke, Rancor keeper, and Gamorrean guard minifigs, plus the monstrous Rancor. The set has 380 pieces and goes for $59.99.
Amazon had also briefly listed 9516 Jabba’s Palace for $99, so we hope some of you picked up this wonderfully complementary set to go with the Rancor pit. But the good news in Tatooine-themed LEGO Star Wars sets is that you can still pick up 9496 Desert Skiff for $5 off.
Three smaller 2013 LEGO Star Wars are also out now on Amazon.com:
Next, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles set 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase is also out on Amazon, with five minifigs and 620 pieces (including lots of olive green) at $59.99.
Several other TMNT sets are also available for order a little early:
Finally, the LEGO Lord of the Rings set 9472 Attack on Weathertop is nearly 30% off, down to $42.75
All via FBTB, who’re on a roll this week with the sales news!
Christmas is just a couple weeks away, but there’s still time to pick up a bit more LEGO and put some boxes that have that special rattle beneath the tree. Both the LEGO Shop and Amazon.com have a few deals that will still arrive by December 25th.
Amazon.com has listed 10197 Fire Brigade at 20% off, down from $150 to $119.97.
Two large LEGO Star Wars sets are also on sale:
EDIT: Oops! Sorry for the double-post on the SSD. We’ll keep both posts up, though, since they have different info…
LEGO.com is still doing free shipping on all orders over $99, and you can pick up a free Gandalf minifig with any purchase of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey game.
Free shipping and guaranteed delivery by Christmas end at midnight EST, December 18th.
Naturally, the new LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sets won’t be available until a day later, starting on December 19th.
We’ll post a reminder in a week.
Amazon currently has the LEGO Star Wars Super Star Destroyer 10221 on sale at $309.99. If you have an Amazon Visa, you can use the code TOY20OFF for en extra $20 off. This is the lowest price that I’ve seen the set go for on Amazon, and there’s no guarantees how long it will stay at this price.
At $85.50, this is a good deal on a just released set and would make for an excellent Christmas present.
UPDATE: 79010 The Goblin King Battle is now 20% off.
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.
