Both Amazon and Walmart have discounted The Hobbit sets they have in stock by about 25%. No Bag-end though. Having new sets go on sale with such a generous discount this early in their release cycle doesn’t bode well, but I chalk it up to the holiday rush along with hype for the movie and movie-related merch. Links below are for Amazon, Walmart’s list here:

Just a quick note since I’m tired. First up is Amazon selling The Hobbit sets at a 20% discount. Example: 79010 The Goblin King Battle is regularly $99.99 but it is now $79.99. 79000 Riddles for The Ring is the worst deal since they’ve already marked it up a few bucks over MSRP. After discount, the set only falls to $9.49, a whopping 50 cent discount. They’re out of 79003 An Unexpected Gathering, but you can pick up 79001 Escape from Mirkwood Spiders and 79002 Attack of the Wargs at 20% less than MSRP.
And lastly, Amazon has stocked up on some more TMNT sets. In addition to 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase that we’ve reported previously, they also have 79101 Shredder Dragon Bike, 79102 Stealth Shell in Pursuit, and 79100 Kraang Lab Escape in stock as well. No discount on the turtle stuff unfortunately but they are brand new in every sense of the word and can make some kids very happy this Christmas.
This may only apply to some of you, but if you’ve never shopped at Yoyo.com before, you should know that they have a 30% off coupon for first time customers. Included in the deal is the new Hobbit line. The only set they don’t have listed is 79004 Barrel Escape. The coupon has a maximum value of $20 making 79010 Goblin King Battle only $79.99 instead of $69.99 like you would expect. It’s still the best price we’ve seen on that set though. A good bet would be to pick up 79003 An Unexpected Gathering. It drops down to $49.99 after discount and you also get free shipping.
Thanks to ufjason for the heads up.
Amazon has almost all of The Hobbit sets now. The only one missing is 79004 Barrel Escape. They are even offering a small discount on 79010 The Goblin King Battle. The going price as I write this is $87.74, a 12% discount off of MSRP of $99.99. Full list of the sets available from Amazon is below except, of course, Barrel Escape.
This’ll be a merry Christmas for sure. LEGO Shop@Home has just put up the entire Hobbit collection for sale on their site. You get free shipping with orders $99 or more. Order by December 18th for delivery in time for Christmas. Full list with prices below:
Huw over at Brickset got his hands on an early copy of the upcoming Hobbit set 79010 The Goblin King Battle and wrote up a review. Tons of pictures and scans to browse through. I just briefly skimmed through and plan on reading it fully later, but so far it looks like a winner. And that’s saying something for a set based on a movie that isn’t even out yet.
