As I'm sure you already know, Amazon is the place to go if you're looking for current sets at a discount. But did you know that, in most European countries, you can buy LEGO from any one of the five European Amazon sites, that your local site is not necessarily the cheapest, and that shipping costs are usually very reasonable?
To help you find out which is the cheapest, I've set up a new page European Amazon Shopper that lists all sets currently available from Amazon and their prices at each of the five European Amazon sites.
You might have seen similar lists at other sites, but this one features several unique features:
- For many countries, prices are shown in your local currency. If your country is not in our database, I can probably add it, so get in touch.
- Retail prices are shown for most countries that shop.LEGO.com ships to, enabling you to see whether sets are discounted or not. The cheapest price is highlighted in the table, as are prices less than RRP.
- Sets you own/want are highlighted.
- I've determined which countries each of the Amazon sites ship to and those that ship to to you are shown in the side panel. For clarity, the tables only show prices from the Amazon sites that do. (Update: the lists now show all prices due to the unreliable information provided by Amazon)
You do not have to be resident in Europe to order from EU Amazons. One or more of them will ship to the following countries (non-European ones shown in bold):
Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Chile, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg
Malta, Mexico, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, United Arab Emirates.
If you view the page from a country not listed above (including the USA and Canada) the tables will be blank, but if you want to view data for a country other than your own, click on the flag icon in the top right corner to change country.
