Lego may be 70 years old but its popularity continues to grow among kids and adults alike. There is a catch, though: those colourful plastic bricks and minifigures do not come cheap, so it’s important to buy from the right place, at the right time, at the right price. And with Black Friday rapidly approaching, some serious deals are starting to appear.

The best places to check for discounted Lego are Amazon, Very, Tesco, Argos and John Lewis in the UK, and Amazon and Best Buy in the US. But you don’t have to trawl through those sites yourself, because our bargain experts have done it for you. In this article we bring you the best Lego deals we’ve found across the web in the UK.

Keep a special eye out for limited-edition sets, which tend to hold their value, especially if you keep them in good condition. (Better yet, don’t open them at all and make a healthy profit in a few years’ time… although of course that’s nowhere near as fun.) And check our roundup of the best Lego sets for more advice.

Best Lego deals

1. Lego City Cargo Train Set

Now: £115.49  (£65 or 36% off)

Unexpectedly brilliant deal on a battery-powered train that can be operated via a 10-speed Bluetooth remote, and comes with a crook minifigure so you can stage your very own robberies – it was £143.99 as recently as 8 November. Argos has a virtually identical deal.

2. Lego Ninjago Land Bounty Vehicle

Now: £78.97  (£41 or 34% off)

Exceptional deal on a really cool Ninjago set. Features a spring-loaded cannon and nine minifigures.

3. Lego Queen Watevra’s Space Palace

Now: £63.97  (£31 or 33% off)

Nice deal on a tie-in set from The Lego Movie 2. Aside from the palace and the queen herself, this comes with a Batman minifigure in special white wedding outfit (er, spoiler alert, sorry).

4. Lego City Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control

Now: £59.99  (£30 or 33% off)

A brilliant saving on a detailed, inspiring set. It’s dropped since late October, when it cost £72. Amazon is currently matching the deal.

5. Lego Boost Creative Toolbox Robot Building Kit

Now: £104.97  (£45 or 30% off)

This Lego set lets you build, code and control five different robots. The price troughed in October at £94.99, but this is the lowest it’s been in a while – it cost £120 on 1 November.

6. Lego Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter

Now: £62.97  (£27 or 30% off)

The absolute classic, and arguably the coolest spaceship in Star Wars. (We’ve had huge arguments about this in the office.) In a nice touch, this set comes with Luke Skywalker and R2-D2, and Biggs Darklighter and his droid, plus stickers and tiles to decorate your ship to suit either pilot.

7. Lego City Mars Research Shuttle Spaceship

Now: £18  (£6.99 or 28% off)

A solid saving on a set that’s sure to appeal to the space fanatic in your life.

8. Lego City Great Vehicles Diving Yacht

Now: £13.08  (£4.91 or 27% off)

Underwater adventures ahoy! Also includes a sea floor scene, a crab and a swordfish. If stock runs out, or Amazon’s price slides upwards again, give John Lewis a try.

9. Lego Technic Rough Terrain Crane

Now: £169.97  (£60 or 26% off)

A nice saving, but it may drop further – it reached a low of just £118.80 at one stage in October. Virtually identical deals are currently available from Very, Argos and John Lewis.

10. Lego Rescue Mission Boat

Now: £62.97  (£22 or 26% off)

A decent deal on a lovely 908-piece animal-saving set: it features a removable deck, a toilet and a little narwhal. Amazon is currently matching this price, and Very is only a few pence more expensive.

11. Lego Harry Potter Hagrid’s Hut Hippogriff Rescue

Now: £36.97  (£13 or 26% off)

Ogre-themed set that comes with wizards, the Minister for Magic, Hagrid himself and a hippogriff named Buckbeak. John Lewis is theoretically offering the same deal, but is currently out of stock.

12. Lego Technic Bugatti Chiron

Now: £246.52  (£83 or 25% off)

We’re seeing lots of movement on this insanely detailed set, which was £216 on 8 November: it’s possible that Amazon is putting the price up in preparation for a substantial discount on Black Friday. In the past Very has matched Amazon on this item, so it may be worth keeping an eye on their pricing too.

13. LEGO Fantastic Beasts Newt’s Case of Magical Creatures

Now: £34.63  (£10 or 23% off)

A slight price rise on this set from the Wizarding World collection, which has four minifigures, three beasts and 694 pieces overall. It was £33.95 on 8 November.

14. Lego Harry Potter Advent Calendar 2019

Now: £19.50  (£5.49 or 22% off)

This is a charming way to track the days leading up to Christmas: each day reveals a surprise toy. John Lewis has the same deal.

15. Lego Harry Potter Hogwarts Express

Now: £58.97  (£16 or 21% off)

Choo-choo! It’s off to wizard school we go in this Harry Potter tie-in set. Comes with the three main ones plus some other characters we don’t recognise, and a chocolate frog. Good deal, though.

16. Lego Ninjago Monastery of Spinjitzu

Now: £64.99  (£15 or 19% off)

This is where Jay, Nya, Zane, Cole, Lloyd and Kai do their ninja training. Features 1,070 pieces!

Alternatively, pick this up as part of a bundle deal from John Lewis and get the Golden Dragon included.

17. Lego Marvel Avengers War Machine Buster

Now: £26.99  (£3 or 10% off)

Pretty small saving on an admittedly cool and violent toy (this posable mech features a six-stud rapid shooter, detachable stud-shooting cannons and two ‘flick missiles’). Bear in mind that Amazon had this for £21.60 on 8 November and so a bigger discount may be in store.
