Amazon has unveiled a collection of great LEGO Black Friday deals, and some of the savings are huge. There’s 41% off the Hidden Side Newbury Haunted High School, saving you £45; 38% off the Technic Car Transporter, a saving of £52.90; 40% off the Technic CONTROL+ app-controlled Top Gear Rally Car, a saving of £50; and similarly deep discounts on everything from architectural models to pictures of the Beatles (made of Lego).
We’re really pleased to see these deals because while we love LEGO very much, some of the sets are usually quite expensive – so for example a Black Friday LEGO Technic deal that drops a set from nearly £125 to under £75 is very welcome indeed.
This year’s deals are slightly different from previous Black Friday LEGO deals: we’re seeing discounts on the LEGO Architecture series, which wasn’t really discounted last year. But all the favourites are getting discounted too, such as LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Technic. Whether you’re buying for your family or for yourself, everything is awesome this Black Friday. Yes, we went there.

If you’re not up to speed with LEGO’s dizzying array of products, they’re grouped into a range of themes. As the name suggests, Architecture is about models of buildings such as the Empire State Building; Star Wars needs no explanation; Ideas are made to be shared with the LEGO community and Technic is for more advanced building: it was originally called Expert Builder when it first launched in the 1970s. The most advanced LEGO brand is Mindstorms, which combines LEGO modularity with sensors and motors to create interesting, controllable vehicles and robots.
