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.

Amazon’s BOGO 40% Off Sale Select Brands, Includes LEGO

79008 Pirate Ship Ambush

Toys’R’Us isn’t the only place in town having a BOGO 40% off sale select LEGO themes. Seems like Amazon wants a piece of the action is offering up their own BOGO 40% off sale. Selection seems to be limited to some Super Heroes, Star Wars, and some Lord of the Rings/Hobbit sets.

Just like the last time this sale came up, the prices are good on the already discounted price. The best deal is once again 79008 Pirate Ship Ambush. It is currently marked down 19% to $81.22. If you purchase two of them, your total discount is -$32.49 dropping the price down to $129.95, making each set cost just under $65 before any tax.

One other item of note is 6860 The Batcave. Though only showing a modest 4% discount, it has been discontinued and is gone from LEGO Shop@Home’s site so if you’ve procrastinated on this one, now would be a good time to pick up a copy or two. 6860 Batcave comes with Bane, Poison Ivy, Robin, Batman, and Bruce Wayne.

Update: Seems I was somehow dialed into the UK version of the Shop@Home site. 6860 The Batcave is still available from the US Shop@Home site. My apologies for the confusion.

Discount will be reflected on the final page of the ordering process.
