Amazon Discounts LEGO Lord of the Rings Sets

79005 The Wizard Battle

Amazon is applying some nice discounts, around 22-26% off, on select LEGO Lord of the Rings sets.

  • 79007 Battle at The Black Gate is discounted 25% from $59.99 down to $44.99.
  • 79006 The Council of Elrond is discounted 26% from $29.99 down to $22.09.
  • Of course no Lord of the Rings sales post would be complete without the obligatory mention of 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush. The current discount for this set is 22% from $99.99 down to $77.94. Not the best discount we’ve seen so if you’re patient you might be able to get a better deal at a later time.
  • 79005 The Wizard Battle is discounted 26% dropping the $12.99 set down to below the $10 mark for just $9.57.

Though technically not Lord of the Rings, the Hobbit set 79014 Dol Guldur Battle is similarly discounted with a 26% discount. It was $69.99 but now can be for just $51.99.

Review: 79005 The Wizard Battle

Full Set

The Wizard Battle addresses one of the biggest gaps in the Lord of the Rings sets (Eowyn and Faramir are both still MIA) by giving us Saruman, as well as some hair for Gandalf. This is the iconic scene from the first film where we learn that the greatest of all wizards has basically turned to the dark side (this was before we knew that he was also responsible for setting up the Clone Wars). It also features the Palantír, and gives us an excuse to have wizard battles while making little sound effects.

And to top it off, it’s only $13, the least-expensive set from the summer Lord of the Rings wave, and we have to ask, can it live up to the first impression we get after seeing all that Christopher Lee goodness?
