You probably know that Lego isn’t just for kids anymore — it’s a pricey hobby for adults, too! And it didn’t help when The Lego Group raised its prices this year by up to 25 percent. But today is Cyber Monday, and some of today’s deals more than make up for those price hikes.
Below, you’ll only find the very best deals on the very best Lego sets that are actually on sale. For example, I’m not seriously including this sweet $70 Sonic The Hedgehog set because it never actually hit $80, or Boba Fett’s Starship since it can almost always be had for $40, or this miniature James Bond 007 Aston Martin DB5 since you’re only saving $2.
But do you see the incredibly detailed Lego Ideas Tree House above, the one whose price Lego hiked from $200 to $250? It’s on sale for $175 today at Amazon and Walmart — and that’s the kind of deal I aspire to bring you here.
Lego Ideas Tree House
One of the first Lego sets with elements made of plant-based plastic (from sugarcane), the Tree House comes with both green and golden fall leaves and stands 14 inches high.
- The Lego Star Wars Imperial Light Cruiser is $95.99 at Amazon, or $127.99 at Target, down from $160. It’s not quite the right scale to play with your typical Lego X-Wings, but it’s a playset by itself, opening up to reveal its interior and launching tiny Tie Fighters of its own.
- The Lego Star Wars Razor Crest, from The Mandalorian, is $97.99 on Amazon (save $42). It may not be the Ultimate Collectors version, but I have this one and it’s absolutely packed with great play features; carbonite-frozen bounties, loading ramps, hidden weapon and sleeping compartments, and an escape pod.
- The Lego Volkswagen T2 Camper is $140.99 at Target (save $39) on one of the most iconic and fully featured cars Lego has built outside of its Technic lineup. Just look at that camper interior with its transforming bed and fridge and table and pop-up shell and chairs! I’m really tempted, particularly given it’s becoming harder to find.

Sorry, you may need to pause your deal hunting to go check out the interior of this amazing set.
- Lego is discontinuing its Mindstorms robot kits for good, but the final entry is on sale: the Lego Robot Inventor kit is $287.99 at Lego.com, down from $360 and quite a bit less than the eBay scalpers are charging.
- If the shoe fits... then you must be a fan of Adidas. The Lego Adidas Originals Superstar shoe, made entirely out of Lego with a matching shoebox, is $63.99 at Walmart.
- The Lego Galaxy Explorer is $75 at Walmart, down from $100, for one of the coolest attempts to modernize a classic set. I’ve got one, and I love it the opening bay doors, pull out rover ramp, and awesome sliding airlock. I also interviewed the designers.
- The Lego Marvel Nano Gauntlet is not only a huge spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War, it’s also a really sleek set that’s $48.99 at Amazon (save $21). Its corresponding Infinity Gauntlet can also be had for $64 today, but that’s not much of a sale.
- Lego’s transforming Lego Optimus Prime is $144.99 at Amazon or Walmart, or $152.99 at Lego.com, which is notably below even its original $170 MSRP. It’s an amazing build, even if it’s a little bit fragile during the transformation. You can watch me build it here:
- Lego’s Bonsai Tree is $39.99 at Amazon or Walmart ($10 off) a lovely little display set you can switch between green leaves or cherry blossoms depending on your mood. No need to water or prune.
- Lego’s Orchid is also $39.99 at Amazon, Target, or Walmart ($10 off), with six blooms, four big leaves and a number of roots and stems you can arrange in a variety of ways.
- Lego’s Succulents, too, are $39.99 at Amazon and Target ($10 off). Each of the main plants sits in an series of interlocking boxes. My wife enjoyed spacing them out, building one or two per sitting.
Lego Marvel Super Heroes Daily Bugle
25 minifigures let Spider-Man battle all manner of villain with some help from the Spiderverse — while the newspaper’s staff just tries to go about its Daily business.
- The Lego Architecture Statue of Liberty is $95.99 at Amazon or Walmart, down from its typical $120. I skip most of the Architecture sets, but something about this one’s ornate build really grabs me.
- The Lego Star Wars Dagobah Jedi Training Diorama is $71.99 at Amazon, Target or Walmart, down from a $90 MSRP.
- This Lego Star Wars Imperial Probe Droid is $41.99 at Amazon or Target, down from $60. I like display pieces that double as playable toys, and this definitely looks the part.
- Lego’s Disney Pixar Lightyear XL-15 spaceship may be an unfortunate tie-in, but it’s an excellent Lego spacecraft design with the rare translucent yellow cockpit. Yours for $39.99 at Walmart (down from $50).
- I bought my wife Lego’s The Child, who I will continue to call Baby Yoda, last year and she was very pleased. Now, it’s $71.99 at Amazon, Target, or Walmart, down from its typical $80.
- Remember when The Mandalorian souped up an original Naboo Starfighter from the Princess Amidala era? Lego’s The Mandalorian N-1 Starfighter is $47.99 at Amazon, Target, and Walmart, down from $60.
- Lego’s Queer Eye — The Fab 5 Loft is $59.99 (down from $99.99) at Amazon or Lego.com. I think the Friends and The Office sets are superior when it comes to details, but it’s hard to ignore 40 percent savings.
- Lego’s Disney Mickey Mouse sequin-style wall art is $79.99 at Walmart, or $89.99 at Target (normally $120).
- Lego’s Everyone Is Awesome, a rainbow celebration of diversity, is $24.49 at Lego.com.
Last but definitely not least, you can find huge deals on some of the priciest Lego sets ever made at Zavvi today, including a $670 UCS Millennium Falcon, $360 app-controlled Cat D11 bulldozer, $340 Ferrari Daytona SP3, $360 Lego Hogwarts Castle, and solid savings on the BTTF Time Machine and Porsche 911. Just know that some in the Lego community have had bad experiences with Zavvi’s couriers, since they ship from outside the US.
