Markdowns on Hobbit LEGOs

Typically you’re not going to see much in the way of markdowns on “current” LEGO sets, like, say, when there’s a new major motion picture version of The Hobbit out. And yet, there’s a few markdowns happening at Amazon on the following sets, even though they’re still full-price on the Lego Shop site.

So yay, Amazon price-adjusting monkeys, for early discounts! Note that these are hardly bargain-basement discounts, but they are discounts on new sets, which are rare.

LEGO The Hobbit Riddles for The Ring for $8.97 (25% off)
LEGO The Hobbit Escape from Mirkwood Spiders for $21.97 (27% off)
LEGO The Hobbit Attack of the Wargs for $37 (24% off)

I snagged the Shelob Attacks set on a Lightning Deal a few weeks back and am kind of itching to pick up a few more sets. Uh, totally because my kid is a LEGO fiend, of course. Not because I figure that if we have some extra Gollums around I can steal one for my desk.

Stop looking at me like that.

    These will make a February birthday boy very happy. If only there were a markdown on the Unexpected Gathering set…. :)

    My son was looking at the Lord of the Rings sets in the LEGO catalog last night and commenting that he didn’t see the Hobbit sets. I told him I didn’t think they were out yet. Guess I’ll be the cool mom now. Thanks.
