Just a few days ago, we saw the Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) Sandcrawler on sale for 21% off. We hope you took advantage of that deal, because it’s now back to full price. If you missed it (or even if you didn’t) here’s another shot at a great UCS set. Amazon currently has the UCS Tie Fighter for 22% off the normal $199 price, bringing it to just $156.51. That’s a fantastic deal for this hard-to-find set. Amazon has the sale on a limited basis, and right now it’s nearly 25% claimed. So act quickly, because they’re sure to go fast.
The Humble Bundle is well known in the gaming community for offering packages of excellent older titles and letting buyers choose how much they want to pay. They’re now offering ebooks as well, and the current Humble Book Bundle features a selection of 4 great LEGO books from No Starch Press if you pay $1 or more. If you choose to pay over $15, you can get digital downloads of a full 16 LEGO books. We’ve reviewed several of them, including The LEGO Neighborhood Book, Beautiful LEGO, The LEGO Build-It Book: Amazing Vehicles, and The Cult of LEGO, so you check out what we thought before you commit. If you’re a longtime TBB reader, you’ll recognize a lot of terrific builders in these pages that we’ve featured over the years.
Don’t want to get a digital version? You can find all of these books on Amazon, and many are even on sale right now, like LEGO Space which is only $17.36 in hardcover.
Full disclosure: We builders here at The Brothers Brick are featured in Beautiful LEGO, The Cult of LEGO, and Steampunk LEGO.
The Ultimate Collector Series (UCS) 75059 Sandcrawler has just gone on sale on Amazon for $63 off its normal price, bringing it down to only $236.99. That’s 21% off, a rare sale for a UCS set. LEGO announced earlier this year that the Sandcrawler would be retiring soon, so it’s only a matter of time before the currently available stock runs out and the price skyrockets.
Find the Sandcrawler on Amazon for $236.99.
The Sandcrawler isn’t the only good LEGO bargain right now, though. We highlighted a number of great deals in a sales roundup last week, and many of them are still active. Below, you can check out some more awesome holiday sales.
The new LEGO Ideas set 21306 Yellow Submarine we reviewed on Saturday is out today, available from the LEGO Shop online for $59.99 in the US, with 553 pieces and 4 minifigures.
More importantly, though, LEGO is retiring several iconic sets that you’ll probably want to grab if you don’t have a copy already.
First up, Angus Maclane’s LEGO Ideas set 21303 Wall-E includes 676 pieces at $59.99. Read our review — we loved it.

Creator Expert sets are hard to find in stores, and even harder to find on a good sale. However, Amazon currently has 10244 Fairground Mixer for 33% off its normal $149.99 price, bringing this 1,746-piece set down to just $100.94.
This might be a great time to stock up on an epic present for that special builder in your life — or maybe even treat yourself: Halloween gifts are a thing, right? This is also a great chance to get this two-year-old set on sale before it retires and the price skyrockets. The previous set in the fairgrounds theme, 2009’s 10196 Grand Carousel, is now selling for a staggering ten times its original retail price of $250.
(Update: It looks like Amazon has sold out of the Fairground Mixer.)
Amazon has a lot of other great sets on sale currently too. Check them out below.

Amazon Prime Day is one of Amazon’s big annual sales, and this year it includes a number of fantastic deals on LEGO. The deals expire once a certain number of people have claimed them, but they’re still active currently. The sales are open only to Amazon Prime members, but don’t forget that you can get a 30-day free Amazon Prime trial.
First up is the Star Wars 75095 UCS Tie Fighter, for $125.99, or nearly $75 off retail. This is an amazing deal for a Star Wars UCS set. At publishing, this deal is 55% claimed, so don’t hold off.

The LEGO Shop online has just reduced its free shipping threshold from $75 to $35, and in July they’re giving away a Classic Castle knight to all LEGO VIPS with purchases over $50.
Hitting both the $35 and $50 minimum is easy this month with the release of some great new sets. 75828 Ecto-1 & 2 retails for $60 and includes 6 minifigs with 556 parts. Read our review, and it will also be this month’s TBB LEGO giveaway.

Lots of sets are on sale, though the highlight for many of our readers is probably the LEGO Ideas set The Big Bang Theory (in case you didn’t pick it up after our review last year).
If you haven’t joined the VIP program yet, you can earn an extra 100 points toward a future discount. Click the banner below to see all the details about this month’s promos.

- Free shipping on all orders (not just over $75)
- Double VIP points on all LEGO Star Wars purchases
- Free First Order Stormtrooper minifig polybag

LEGO sent me the stormtrooper and the poster last week, and both are lovely. The stormtrooper has a unique torso print (which you can see in the image below) with a bracket for the back, to which the printed 1×1 tile from the jetpack stormtrooper is attached (with an extra 1×1 tile in the polybag).
The new 75098 Assault on Hoth was released this week, and a bunch of LEGO Star Wars sets are also on sale, including the lovely 75094 Shuttle Tyderium and the 75140 Resistance Troop Transporter I reviewed before the movie came out.

LEGO is clearing out some of its older sets, presumably to make room for all the March 2016 LEGO sets released yesterday. While the selection isn’t huge, one highlight is 21302 Big Bang Theory.
21302 Big Bang Theory was one of our best-reviewed sets of 2015, and you can pick it up for $47.98 rather than the quite spendy $59.99.
