Best Buy Canada: 15% Off Select Lego Series Including Star Wars, The Hobbit, LoTR & More!

Best Buy Canada: 15% Off Select Lego Series Including Star Wars, The Hobbit, LoTR & More!

According to Lehigh University the Death Star would cost about $850,000,000,000,000,000 to build. You can build your own Star Wars gear out of LEGO for much cheaper, and get 15% off at Best Buy Canada!

It’s not only Star Wars LEGO (sets starting at $12.99) that is on sale. You can also get Chima (starting at $14.99), Friends (starting at $5.99), City (starting at $8.99), The Hobbit (starting at $34.99) and Lord of the Rings LEGO sets (larger sets starting at $74.99). What better way to get your kids ready for the new Star Wars or the upcoming Hobbit movies, or even to get them into past properties like, of course, the original Star Wars or the LotR movies? Even the LotR books would be cooler with LEGO.

I suspect a lot of parents are going to dig these too. I know I can’t wait for my boy to be at LEGO-building age. I used to play with these sets all the time as a kid, so having an excuse to drop tons of money on sweet toys is gonna be great. Even if you don’t have kids, it can be a great hobby. We spend so much time playing video games and watching shows, that using LEGO as a tactile, physical hobby would be a great idea. It’s like the super-awesome version of your grandmother doing puzzles on the kitchen table.

Shipping on orders over $20 is free. Under $20, it depends on what you get and where you are, but a $13 Star Wars LEGO set costs less than $3 to ship to me.

Amazon.ca: 50% Off Box Set of The Hobbit & The Lord of The Rings Books + MORE Tolkien Deals!

Amazon.ca: 50% Off Box Set of The Hobbit & The Lord of The Rings Books + MORE Tolkien Deals!

If you want to be the coolest nerd watching The Hobbit for the 32nd time, you need to bring this box set of the books along with you. Amazon Canada will sell you the box set for cheap but be warned, if you are wearing your wizard robe when they deliver it, Amazon can’t sell you your self respect.

The books are normally $49.99, but the 50% off gets you the books for $25. As it turns out, that is just the right level to get free shipping. How thoughtful of them, huh?

I mentioned in another post that I dislike The Lord of The Rings series or any of Tolkien’s stuff. I’m sure I could actually dig his work but I, as I mentioned in that other article, couldn’t sit still enough to read it when I was a kid and absolutely despised the few bits of the movies that I could actually stomach. That being said, I’ve actually been tempted by the Hobbit so maybe I’ll strap myself to the couch and force my self to watch one of the movies. Maybe.

I said in the title that I have more J.R.R. Tolkien deals for you and I do. The first is two different editions of The Hobbit that you can find here:

The Hobbit Two Volume is a good deal, but there are other retailers who have the movie tie in version of The Hobbit for the same or nearly the same price, so it isn’t as good a deal unless shipping from Amazon happens to work better for you.

The other thing you should look it is Amazon Canada’s Tolkien store. Not everything here is an especially good deal but it is a convenient place to get your Tolkien fix all in one spot.
