As far as expensive nerd hobbies go, LEGO is definitely somewhere in the top tier, only outdone by the exorbitant money vacuum that is Warhammer. If you’re a casual or hardcore LEGO collector, you know how pricey sets can get, especially if they’re a part of a major brand like Star Wars or Marvel.

It’s an expensive hobby, so being able to save some money here and there is always welcome. With that in mind, here are some of the best LEGO deals currently available.

LEGO Art: Star Wars The Sith (now $99, save $100.99)

I dig the concept of the LEGO Art series. As an adult, your LEGO purchases are usually based on picking up sets you can display in your room or around your house, so why not grab something that is designed to be a decoration?  My only issue is that I don’t know if I can validate dropping $179.99 on one of these.

However, you can currently pick up the the Sith edition of the LEGO Art Star Wars series for $99, which is much better value (especially when you need three sets to make the over-sized portrait).

LEGO Art: Marvel’s Iron Man (now $99, save $100.99)

This is the same as the above LEGO set – including the discount price of $99 – but Marvel flavoured. This Iron Man edition of LEGO’s Art series gives you the option of building a portrait for the Mark III, the Hulkbuster Mark I or the Mark LXXXV suits.

If you have three of this set, you can also build a landscape display of Iron Man firing off a hand repulsor.

If your pop culture tastes run a bit broader, you can also grab the Art series kit for The Beatles and Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe for the same price.

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina (now $449, save $80.99)

This Mos Eisley Cantina set might be the ultimate Star Wars set.

This set is a giant recreation of the infamous hive of scum and villainy from the first Star Wars, and is overflowing with minifigs, some of which are exclusively found here. There’s figures for Doctor Evazan, Long Snoot and that bat-faced alien you only see for all of one second.

This LEGO set has had its price slashed by $80.99 over at Amazon, so you’ll only be paying $449 instead of $529.99.

LEGO Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse (now $199, save $80.99)

Personally? I find this LEGO set to be weirdly off-putting. Something about Micky and Minnie’s faces just doesn’t seem right (I think it’s the weird LEGO noses). But if you worship at the House of Mouse, this set seems like a no-brainer.

This LEGO Micky and Minnie Mouse set is currently on sale for $199, down from $279.99. That’s a total discount of $80.99 – or about $40 per mouse.

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Pirate Ship (now $95, save $64.99)

It’s an undeniable fact that LEGO’s best non-branded series involve pirates. So a LEGO pirate set that gives you multiple build options is, by definition, the best, right? This LEGO Creator set give you the choice of three full builds: a classic Pirate Ship, a rustic Pirates’ Inn and a mysterious skull-shaped hideaway.

This pirate LEGO set is currently on sale for $95, saving you $64.99 from its $159.99 price tag.

If the Creator range is your LEGO line of choice, or you just love a challenging build, there are a few other deals available. You can also pick up a discount for the LEGO Creator Harley-Davidson Fat Boy kit (now $99, down from $159.99) and the massive LEGO Creator Assembly Square set (now $288.99, down from $399.99)

LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron (now $469, save $130.99)

LEGO has spared no expense for this 1:8 scale Technic model of the Bugatti Chiron. This LEGO Technic set was developed closely with Bugatti Automobiles, resulting in it having an absurd level of detail, both inside and out. It’s such a faithful replica that the W16 engine even has moving pistons.

The LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron is currently on sale for $469 on Amazon, down from the usual RRP of $599.99.

If a Ferrari is more your speed, the LEGO Technic 488 GTE “AF Corse #51” is also on sale for $249, down from $299.99.

LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon (now $197, save $52.99)

The one set no LEGO Star Wars collection should be without. This is The Rise of Skywalker edition of the Millennium Falcon, so the selection of included minifigs aren’t as good as previous version. But a LEGO Millennium Falcon is still a Millennium Falcon, and this one is currently on sale for $197, down from $249.99.

If looking for a few more LEGO Star Wars deals, Amazon has a couple more major ones on offer. The LEGO AT-AT set is on sale for $167, which will save you $82.99 from the usual RRP of $249.99. The LEGO set for The Mandalorian’s ship, The Razor Crest, is also currently available for $169, so you’ll save a nice $30.99 off the RRP.

LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (now $275, save $74.99)

 

I’m surprised there aren’t more Stranger Things LEGO sets available, but the only one that does exist is still pretty great. It includes the core cast for the show’s first season (sorry, Steve Harrington fans), and depicts the normal and Upside Down versions of the Byers house. There’s no “right-way up”, so you can flip it around whenever you feel like it.

You can save yourself $86.79 off this Stranger Things LEGO set and pick it up for $263.20 over at Amazon.

LEGO Super Mario sets (save up to $50.99)

LEGO Super Mario While your mileage may vary with the actual playability of the LEGO Super Mario sets, you can’t deny that they did a great job of translating the various Mario settings and characters into LEGO. Released last year, I’d say the biggest turn off for this series was the fairly expensive price tags – especially the starter set, which is the only way you can get a Mario figure.

The good news is, a few of these LEGO sets are currently on sale over at Amazon, for prices that are easier to justify:

LEGO Ideas Friends Central Perk ($69, save $20.99)
