Some Cyber Monday Deals

6869 Quinjet Aerial Battle

Cyber Monday is here! Only two etailers have Cyber Monday deals to report: Toys’R’Us with one item, a Chima set, and LEGO Shop@Home. Some of the Shop@Home sale items aren’t too bad though. And of course, what is lacking in Cyber Monday deals will be made up tenfold in the next few days as etailers compete for your LEGO dollar. We’ll do our best to keep you informed of the best deals.

LEGO Shop@Home


  • 70014 The Croc Swamp Hideout – $44.99 (normal MSRP: $69.99)

Amazon Has LEGO on Today’s Gold Box Deals

9474 The Battle of Helm's Deep

If you’re like me and stuck at home today cause you’re watching the kids and don’t want to go out in the rain, you can take advantage of several LEGO deals in Amazon’s Gold Box. The sets vary across themes and price points but I’m sure there will be things you’ll want to pick up. Gold Box deals tend to be claimed in a seconds so act fast on that mouse. A couple of upcoming deals include 76008 Iron Man vs. The Mandarin Ultimate Showdown, 21103 The DeLorean Time Machine, 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase, and 9474 The Battle of Helm’s Deep just to name a few. The Gold Box price will be an additional discount on Amazon’s current selling price for the set.

Thanks again to Gooker1 for the tip.

Update: Black Friday LEGO Deals

There isn’t much in the way of new updates for Black Friday. I’ve updated this post with new entries: LEGO Shop@Home and Brand Retail discounts, as well as Walmart’s blanket discount of 30% off all LEGO from 8am to 2pm. Still don’t know what BN is offering if anything.

By the time you read this, some retailers are already offering their Black Friday deals online, like Target, Walmart, and Best Buy. And no, the 30% discount is being reflected on

To see our complete list of Black Friday LEGO deals, check out the original post. If anything changes between now and Friday, I’ll make another update and another post.

Thanks for stopping by.

Walmart Offers 30% Discount On All LEGO For Black Friday

walmartblackfriday is reporting that Walmart is adding a “Manager’s Special” section to their Black Friday flyer. One part in particular seems enough to get the AFOL masses into their store: 30% off all LEGO Construction toys. This deal is good from 8am to 2pm on Friday. There is no indication that the deal will be honored online but it won’t hurt to check.

Thanks to thegremlin for posting it in our forum.

LEGO Shop@Home Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

LEGO Shop@Home sent out their Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Black Friday deals begin Thursday 9pm Pacific/Friday 12am Eastern. Not a whole lot to get excited over. It seems that the next biggest thing that was supposed to be bigger than Ninjago (Chima) isn’t doing so well. I can’t imagine why else what looks like the entire line would be marked down 50%. On the licensed, not many good deals to be had. Still, take a look at the list if you’re interested.

There are also several promotions you can take advantage of:

FREE Limited Edition Holiday Set with purchase of $99 or more.
Valid Nov 29th – Dec 2nd or while supplies last

FREE $10 Gift Card with purchase of $149 or more (Online Only).
Valid Nov 29th – Dec 2nd or while supplies last.

FREE Shipping on all orders (no minimum).
Valid Nov 29th – Dec 2nd

Valid: through Dec 31st or while supplies last.

FREE Exclusive Clone Trooper™ Lieutenant with LEGO® Star Wars™ purchases of $50 or more!
Valid: through Dec 31st or while supplies last

And with that, onto the deals:

Amazon Sells 70725 Nindroid MechDragon


If you’re still into Ninjago or know someone that still is, you should know that Amazon is selling 70725 Nindroid Mech right now with immediate shipping. Price is $88.88 a 1% discount off of $89.99. I know what you’re saying, “big whoop on the discount” but that’s not the point. The point being, you can buy this 2014 set right now and go swoosh the MechDragon up and down your street and be the envy of all the other kids who will look down through their tears from their bedroom windows in jealousy wondering what magical powers you possess to be able to get a toy from the future.

Or something like that.

Black Friday LEGO Deals

Updated: Thursday 2:23am

Like last year, I’ve taken the time to compile a list of all of the Black Friday LEGO deals from most of the major retailers.

There aren’t a lot of great deals to be had. Most of them revolve around the LEGO video games and the deals that are available as of this writing are almost not worth leaving the house for in my opinion. There is one notable exception to this list and that is LEGO Shop@Home’s deals which haven’t been communicated yet. I’ll be updating this post throughout the week though as more retailers publish their deals, so bookmark it or keep checking back.
