The set costs £129.99 in the UK, and comes with 8 minifigs and 1,619 parts.
Buyers in North America will have to wait until December 31.

If your LEGO set budget isn’t tapped out yet, Amazon.com has many of the new 2013 LEGO sets right now, as well as lots of current sets on sale, starting with the new Spider-Man set 76005 Daily Bugle Showdown.
Other notable new and/or discounted sets include:

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.
We expected LEGO to hold on to their 2013 sets until, well, 2013, but they’ve just released the new LEGO Space theme, Galaxy Squad, on the LEGO Shop online.
Here’s the full list of new LEGO Galaxy Squad sets:
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.
We expected LEGO to officially release the LEGO Hobbit sets on December 1st, but they’re now available (perhaps spurred on by their early availability from places like Amazon.com). All of the new Hobbit sets are out on LEGO.com, and free shipping applies on orders over $99 through December 18.
Here’s the full list of sets:
I know we’ve had a lot of sales news lately, but a percentage of everything you buy on the LEGO Shop and Amazon.com goes toward supporting what we do here on The Brothers Brick, from servers to contest sponsorships. Thanks very much for all your support over the years!
