As a side note for our readers in Canada and the UK, you can now join our readers in the US by supporting TBB when you click through from Brothers-Brick.com to make purchases on Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk. Just follow any Amazon link on the site before you make your purchases, and a portion of the proceeds (without any additional cost to you) will go to help run TBB’s servers, provide more product reviews, sponsor events like BrickCon and BrickCan, and award prizes and giveaways to builders all over the world.
Presumably in advance of the impending release of summer 2017 LEGO Star Wars sets, Amazon.com is heavily discounting a number of sets from The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and Rebels.
75148 Encounter on Jakku from The Force Awakens is a whopping 40% off, listed at only $35.76 (down from $60). This is the only set so far that includes Unkar Plutt, and the Luggabeast with Teedo is definitely the highlight of the set.
75154 TIE Striker from Rogue One is 34% off $45.88. We thought this set wasn’t worth the full $70 price tag when we reviewed the LEGO TIE Striker, but this is definitely a much more palatable price for 543 pieces.
Amazon is currently having a buy one get one 40% off promotion that includes Lord of the Rings, Hobbit, Star Wars and Castle themes. The promotion includes items already on sale. To qualify for the sale, you have to check out with just 2 items in your cart from the qualifying themes. The sale price will show up on the last page of check out. Below are some items worth noting and their sale price with the promotion applied:
LEGO Castle Forest Ambush ($6.39)
LEGO Star Wars AT-RT 75002 ($13.85)

Russell Crowe was on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon promoting Man of Steel a couple nights ago, and Jimmy brought out some of the recent Jor-El toys depicting Russell Crowe in the movie role. Russell Crowe said that his son’s favorite toy in the whole world is the LEGO minifig, and he’s very happy to have a minifig version of his dad now.
Of course, the Jor-El minifig doesn’t actually come in any sets, but you can get it for free. The LEGO Shop’s June promotion is a free Jor-El minifig for orders over $75 or £50. LEGO is also introducing free shipping “every day” on all orders over $75/£50.
But first, all of the summer 2013 LEGO Lord of the Rings sets are out on both the LEGO Shop website and Amazon.com (links below go to Amazon, where buying anything goes to support TBB; scroll to the bottom of the post if you want to get them from the LEGO Shop, with the Jor-El minifig).
79006 The Council of Elrond includes Elrond, Arwen, Frodo, and Gimli, with 243 pieces for $30.
79007 Battle at the Black Gate includes Aragorn, Gandalf the White (previously only available as Gandalf the Grey), the Mouth of Sauron, two orcs, an eagle, and 656 pieces for $60.
The big set from this batch of new LEGO Lord of the Rings sets is LEGO LOTR 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush with Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, the King of the Dead, two Dead Men of Dunharrow, a Corsair pirate, and two orcs. For $100, you get 756 pieces.
Finally, LEGO LOTR 79005 The Wizard Battle includes Gandalf the Grey and Saruman for $13 — a nice little set for two such major characters.
UPDATE: Presumably to make room for all the new Lord of the Rings sets (in their enormous warehouses, ha!), Amazon.com has discounted a number of sets from The Hobbit as well:
- 20% off 79003 An Unexpected Gathering (My review: Best. LEGO set. OF ALL TIIIMMMEEE!!!)
- 24% off 79010 The Goblin King Battle (Josh’s review)
- 22% off 9473 The Mines of Moria
- 13% off 9474 The Battle of Helm’s Deep
(Watch to make sure you’re not getting ripped off when the prices change, or when the sales start going to third party sellers on the same page, for a much higher price.)
With apologies for the visual repetition and a reminder that clicking through from TBB goes to support the site, here are the Jor-El links:
