Amazon slashes prices of LotR *and* The Hobbit sets

Posted by ,
An Unexpected Gathering

Amazon.co.uk has reduced the price of all LotR sets by 25%, and also has four of The Hobbit sets available for pre-order at a 25% discount. That makes An Unexpected Gathering much more palatable at £45 instead of £60. There's no expected delivery date given but I suspect it will be around 1st December.

All the sets are now listed on the Bargain Watch page.

Thanks for that, without VAT but with shipping it was 52 pounds to Australia (so around $80 delivered). damn good buy!

It looks like Amazon have 25% off nearly all their Lego at the moment, not just The Hobbit.

Thank you Huw! I've resisted the Middle-earth sets so far (aside from the free ones in The Sun) but crumbled in the face of the An Unexpected Gathering at 25% off . . . .

I bought them last evening, the expected delivery date (for Belgium) is 20-24 december. It looks that you can only see the delivery date when you placed the order :P

Ordered Unexpected Gathering last night, I am very tempted to make a hole in Decembers Lego budget at these prices.

4 of the hobbit sets can be shipped to Canada too. I think it might be a decent deal, does anyone know what the Canadian MSRP is?

Oh dear... I only started on the LOTR for the new style horse.... think I might have to have some of these sets... irony is not lost on me... I've never even watched the films!!! a bit like pirates of the Caribbean which I have a few sets of...

@meccanotwitch - glad to know I'm not the only person that has a monthly Lego budget... shame Christmas shopping is hitting it this month !!

I just ordered the unexpected gathering and it stated delivery is expected 27th December. Hopefully that's worse case scenario.

If that does turn out to be the case you can cancel preorders easily enough anyway.

I received the 2012 Christmas Special Lego catalogue in the mail this morning and it contains the Hobbit sets. It confirms they are available to purchase on 1st December from Lego. Hopefully Amazon will ship these orders soon too.
