New Amazon Sale on One LEGO Set, and More Discounts for the UK on Smyths’ Black Friday

It goes from one LEGO discount sale to another over at Amazon lately. Not long after the most popular new alien creature from Star Wars got reduced prices on both there as well as Walmart, Amazon is now slashing the tag on one particularly old LEGO Creator set, a car.

No, it’s not the recent Aston Martin DB5 – like we said, it’s an old set. Rather, the Creator Mini Cooper (10242) is being discounted by 19% on the world’s largest online retailing platform. It’s amazing, considering its age, that the Mini Cooper (10242) hasn’t been retired yet. Still, this is the cheapest offering for the LEGO Creator set on Amazon so far, perfect for collectors who might want the classic car favored by Mr. Bean and Britain of the Sixties.


Speaking of Britain, the Smyths retail chain has initiated a massive discounting of some of their prominent LEGO sets on stock. This seems to be their advanced listing of sales as the world approaches Black Friday week. Here’s a list of stuff; it’s quite long:


  1. Passenger Train, £120 £90

LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) Set On Discount in Both Amazon and Walmart

Perhaps it bears some repeating that Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which premiered in the 2017 Holidays, ended up being one of the most significantly divisive installments of the space opera saga. That extends to the movie’s specific elements, say for instance the Porg. Some critics would say it’s the stupidest alien life-form ever designed for Star Wars, with others believe it’s just hilariously cute.

LEGO certainly thought so, if the great detailing on their Star Wars Porg set (75230) is any indication. Who could say no to those big beady eyes and widely opening mouth? If you think the price is a bit too much however, check Amazon now.


Normally priced at $84.95, Amazon has listed a 20% discount for LEGO Star Wars Porg (75230) to put it at $55.99 per set. We’d say that open-mouthed Porg in our featured image is a perfect reaction for this great news.

But wait, there’s more. Walmart isn’t going to lose out on Amazon where the LEGO Porg (75230) is concerned. They too have knocked down their price to the same $55.99 that the online retail giant’s offering. That’s even better news as it offers two options to get this set at lower than the usual rate. Sometimes some sweet deals come before the actual holiday period.

Early LEGO Black Friday Offers Coming This Weekend

News and details of LEGO Black Friday offers are slowly coming in ahead of the year’s super sale event next week. LEGO has sent out word via email that LEGO VIPs are in for a treat this Friday with its early Black Friday shopping event at all LEGO Stores and at LEGO Shop @Home. During the weekend from November 17 to 18, LEGO VIP members will earn double points on any LEGO purchase made during the upcoming weekends.

LEGO is also throwing in the seasonal gift-with purchase set, LEGO Christmas Box (40292) for free, for every single receipt purchase of any LEGO products worth $99 and more. This is a great head start if you wish to add to those sweet double VIP points while being one of the first of those to bring home the Christmas Box (40292) freebie.

Of course, it’s a matter of weighing in your choices between the nice incentives that LEGO will be offering this weekend, and between the insanely great discounts that LEGO has in store come Black Friday. Either way around, you’ll still have the better end of the best deals that LEGO has to offer. Be sure to visit for more details.


LEGO Store Black Friday Free Exclusives Revealed

A couple of months ago, we reported that the LEGO Bricktober 2018 minifigures will now be made available at LEGO Stores following the demise of toy retail giant, Toys R Us. The availability of these highly-sought after collectible minifigures was confirmed by LEGO over through an email send to querying fans . Afterwards, LEGO was quite mum about the details, and it eventually turned out that book store retail king Barnes and Noble, will exclusively offer one of the LEGO Bricktober minfigures as a promotional gift the day after the release of the Fantastic Beasts sequel, Crimes of Grindelwald.  This time around, it looks like LEGO is now staying true to its promise of offering one of the LEGO Bricktober 2018 minifigure sets as a LEGO Store Black Friday free exclusive.

If you recall, we also shared some prior rumor that the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigure set (5005257) will be across LEGO Stores as part of LEGO’s Black Friday deals. Thanks to a report shared by The Brick Fan, we now have confirmation that is indeed the case. One of the readers of The Brick Fan’s blogsite shared the an image of the LEGO Store flyer, revealing what’s in store on LEGO Store Black Friday.

First off, we now have confirmation that the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigure will now be available as a free, in-store LEGO Store Black Friday exclusive, with any single receipt purchase of any LEGO product worth $50 and above. This promotional is available only in-store so you might want to take the extra effort of locating the nearest LEGO Store nearest you.

One of my personal favorites and much-awaited LEGO GWP set for the holidays is the new LEGO Christmas Gift Box (40292). The set has already found its way in Europe and China, and its glad to hear that it will now be available in the US, from November 23 to 26, or until supplies last. Unlike the LEGO Ninjago Bricktober 2018 minifigures, the Christmas Gift Box will be available both in-store and online over at This cute, little holiday build will be available to all LEGO fans with a purchase of $99 or more.

Other than these LEGO Store Black Friday freebies, select LEGO sets will be on great discounts on Black Friday, with more LEGO sets placed on 30% discount from November 23 until 26. The deals continue until Cyber Monday where selected LEGO sets will still be offered at 20% discount.

The above mentioned LEGO Store flyer also tells us that the LEGO Creator Expert Detective’s Office (10246) will also be on a 20% discount from November 23 to 26. This modular set is now listed as out of stock over LEGO Shop@Home, so if you ever bump on this one at your local LEGO Store from Black Friday to Cyber Monday, then this might be the only time to get this set at a great discount. Alternatively, you may get the Detective’s Office (10246) roughly on its same regular price over at Amazon.

Be sure to stay tuned here on our blogsite for more LEGO Store Black Friday offers. We’ll update the site as more info comes in.


LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) Discounted on Amazon and Rumored to Retire Soon

A listing on global retail giant Amazon has the LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) set being discounted 25%, going from $199.99 to $149.99 as a result. This is not third-party but a sale by Amazon itself, so one can count on earlier delivery than the 1-3-month shipping.

The LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean Silent Mary (71042) depicts the living monstrous shipwreck haunt of the undead pirate and Jack Sparrow foe Captain Salazar, as he, his crew and pet zombie sharks (and the Mary’s masthead) pursue Jack and his companions Henry (Turner) and Carina across the mysterious seas.

Expand Your LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China (21041) With This Great Price Cut From Amazon

Thinking of how to make your LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China (21041) look even better? Then why not adding another section to this iconic World Heritage Site rendered in LEGO bricks, especially that Amazon is currently offering this set at 20% off from its original price.

Since its reveal last April, we saw that the LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China (21041) followed a certain organic design which is somewhat different from other Architecture sets that are based on modern man-made structures. This gives the Great Wall a more natural aesthetic and the opportunity to allow multiple copies of the same set to be snapped together, creating a more realistic, brick-built rendition.

Coming in at 551 pieces and retailing for $49.99, the cost of getting another set is quite steep, to be honest. However, it may not be much of a problem now that Amazon is running a promo that offers the LEGO Architecture Great Wall of China (21041) at 20% off, reducing its price to $39.99 per set. So if you’re looking forward to build that Great Wall project using LEGO bricks, then you may want to click on the link below and check out the rest of this Amazon promo. Happy building!

This accurately detailed LEGO interpretation depicts 2 turrets joined by a winding section of wall atop a dark-green mountainous landscape with lush valleys, trees and lakes, and is finished with decorative English and Chinese nameplates. The set has been designed to deliver a rewarding and relaxing building experience to all with an interest in architecture, travel, history and design, and makes a truly dynastic centerpiece for the home or office. Connect multiple models to extend your great wall display.

Target’s Exclusive LEGO Bean There, Donut That (40358) Now on 20% Discount

Picking up retailer-exclusive LEGO sets are among the many joys of a dedicated LEGO collector. Sometimes these exclusives do not bear any theme name other than the LEGO brand itself, making them even more sought-after. This has been the case of the recently released LEGO Bean There, Donut That (40358) set, an exclusive for retail giant Target.

LEGO Bean There, Donut That (40358)

If anyone interested in Bean There, Donut That (40358) has been holding off on account of the price, wait no more. Target’s just put it on sale.

Speaking of minifigs, these set of four occupational minifigures are unique to this set and are not found anywhere else. Here’s a quick rundown of Bean There, Donut That (40358) as seen from Target’s website.

New Amazon Discount Sales for LEGO Ninjago and Wizarding World: Fantastic Beasts

There’s that favorite stock character versus topic online, called “pirates versus ninjas”. The argument for that match-up can be summed up in the trope named “cool versus awesome”; anime fans might recall One Piece and Naruto. But there’s an alternate opponent for ninjas: wizards. That’s how Amazon’s LEGO sales seem to be shaping up lately.

What I mean is that Amazon presently has discount sales for 2018 sets, two each from LEGO Ninjago and the Wizarding World. It’s your choice between the most awesome brick ninjas against the coolest (and most powerful) wizards in pop fiction (in brick form, naturally).

  • LEGO Ninjago Firstbourne (70653) – gets 20% off its regular $69.99 price for a sweeter bargain of $56. Worth it for 6 minifigures and two main builds (dragon and helicopter)


  • LEGO Ninjago Oni Titan (70658) – $49.99 on Shop@Home? Amazon’s taking 19% from that and offering just $40.47 for a giant robot build plus 4 minifigures
  • LEGO Wizarding World Grindelwald’s Escape (75951) – two minifigs, a vehicle and creature build for $16.82, a 16% discount from Amazon


  • LEGO Wizarding World Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures (75952) – four minifigures and a score of magical creatures big (buildable) and small (one-piece Niffler) gets 20% discount and priced now at $39.99

So what’ll it be? Wizarding World versus Ninjago? Amazon’s making the choice easier (and more affordable too) for you all. But seeing as Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is premiering early next month, it’s like Wizards have the advantage for just a brief moment.
