While collecting and building LEGO is a great way to kill time, the individual price tags for certain sets can be enough to make your heart race. Especially if it’s a major brand like Star Wars or Marvel.

While it looks like we’re going to be spending a bit more time inside during this current wave of lockdowns, building a brand new LEGO set is a nice way to keep your brain and hands busy.

If you’re a casual or hardcore LEGO collector, you know how pricey sets can get, 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.

This article has been updated since its original publication.

LEGO Art: Harry Potter Hogwarts Crests – now $99 (down from $199.99)

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 $199.99 on one of these.

However, you can currently pick up the Hogwarts Crest edition of LEGO’s Art series on sale for $99, which is much better value (especially when you need four sets to make the giant display piece). This set gives you the option of building a portrait for each of the four Hogwarts houses from Harry Potter or, if you have four of this set, you can also build a unique Hogwarts crest that includes every house.

If your pop culture tastes run a bit broader, you can also grab the Mickey Mouse Art series kit for the same price, or Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe for $79.

LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Chamber of Secrets – now $175 (down from $299.99)

Speaking of Harry Potter, do you dare enter the Chamber of Secrets? This LEGO set does exactly what it says on the box. You get a couple of Hogwarts rooms and the Chamber of Secrets, along with a stack of minifigs of students, teachers, the basilisk and a golden Voldemort.

If you want to further build out your LEGO Hogwarts, you can grab the Fluffy Encounter set on sale for $55 and save yourself $14.99.

LEGO Star Wars Luke Skywalker’s X-Wing – now $60 (down from $79.99)

It wouldn’t be a LEGO sale if there wasn’t a Star Wars deal to be had. This is one of those sets that no LEGO Star Wars collection should be without. This LEGO set recreates one of the most iconic starfighters in pop culture history and includes minifigs for Luke, Leia, R2-D2 and the first person to say “may the Force be with you” in Star Wars.

If you want to make sure your LEGO Death Star trench display is as accurate as possible, you can also snag a TIE Fighter set for $52, down from $69.99. You can also grab an Imperial Shuttle for $92 and save yourself $37.99

Lego Super Heroes 1989 Batmobile – now $295 (down from $399.99)

Has there been a better-looking Batmobile than the one from Tim Burton’s Batman movies? The answer is no.

This LEGO recreation is an incredibly detailed replica of the 1989 Batmobile. Everything you’d want this set to have is there, from the detailed wheels trims, right down to the decals in the cockpit. Being able to save a little over $100 off its usual $400 price tag is pretty good, too.

A must-have for any Batman fan, but just make some room in your Batcave first because this set is a whopping 60cm long.

LEGO Harry Potter Wizard’s Chess Set – now $85 (down from $109.99)

It’s a Harry Potter LEGO set and game of chess rolled into one. Not only can you recreate the classic scene from The Philosopher’s Stone, but you can use it to play a few rounds with your friends or family. Unlike Wizard’s Chess, you’ll have to move the pieces yourself though.

You can grab the LEGO Wizard’s Chess set for $85 here.

LEGO Minecraft sets (save up to $40)

This crossover makes sense. After all, Minecraft is more or less a digital version of playing with LEGO. You can currently snag a few decent deals on the LEGO sets that are based on the hugely popular game.

The LEGO Minecraft deals include:

LEGO Creator 3-in-1 Pirate Ship – now $105.79 (down from $159.99)

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 $105.79, saving you $54.20 from its $159.99 price tag.

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina – now $423.20 (down from $529.99)

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 $106.79 over at Amazon, so you’ll only be paying $423.20 instead of $529.99.

LEGO Super Mario sets (save up to $50.99)

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, for prices that are easier to justify. With the new Luigi sets, now’s a good time to build up some expansions sets for cheap.

LEGO Creator Expert Assembly Square – now $295 (down from $399.99)

Branded LEGO is great, but if you’re someone who just enjoys the process of building something or you enjoy collecting sets that look great on display, this Creator Expert set is probably right up your alley.

It depicts a bustling street corner, with multi-storey buildings that contain unique rooms. This LEGO Creator set’s price is currently a quarter off, so you’ll pay $295 instead of $399.99.

LEGO Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse – now $176 (down from $279.99)

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 $176, down from $279.99. That’s a total discount of $103.99 – or about $50 per mouse.
