Just thought to mention that many of the LEGO sets that were released at the beginning of August are now also available on Amazon. For those of you who are Amazon Prime members, or if you already shop on Amazon for other items (books, electronics, entertainment, cosmetics, etc.), it is worth checking out the LEGO section. If you would prefer to shop directly from LEGO go here: All New LEGO Sets & Promotions for the Month! and below we will cover what you can find on Amazon from the new selection. 🙂
Amazon usually have great prices on LEGO as long as it is directly sold by Amazon. Prices are either the same or better as buying directly from LEGO. Amazon also has a third-party selling program, but prices from those sellers are usually higher and also they charge for shipping separately. Basically if you see the Shipped and Sold by Amazon and the Eligible for Free Shipping notice next to the item, you know you are buying directly from Amazon. Also, Amazon has a lower threshold for free shipping than the Online LEGO Shop ($35 instead of $75), and you can combine your LEGO and non-LEGO items in one order. Plus, there is no sales tax in most states. However you don’t get LEGO VIP points. So there are some plusses and minuses either way…
The new LEGO Friends Jungle Series, as well as the #41058 LEGO Friends Shopping Mall (which is the largest LEGO Friends set to date) are now all available on Amazon. The LEGO Friends Jungle sets are particularly nice with many interesting new elements and animals. Prices on Amazon can fluctuate some, but at the time of this writing they are the same or slightly lower than buying directly from LEGO. The listed price (if sold directly by Amazon) is always going to be the same as LEGO’s own price, or if the price is lower, it will be noted next to the item.
All the new icy and fiery set from LEGO Legends of Chima are now available, as well as a whole range of new LEGO Chima Speedorz. Many new tribes have been added this season with some really interesting characters, including some with translucent body parts! It is a little hard to find them on Amazon as they are still new and won’t come up under suggestions, but here are some of the more popular ones.
- New #70143 LEGO Chima Sir Fangar’s Saber-Tooth Walker
- New #70144 LEGO Chima Laval’s Fire Lion

This month has been very exciting for LEGO fans with many new sets to satisfy everyone’s interests and tastes, and Amazon just gives another option to make shopping a bit easier and also save some dollars in the process. At least that’s the hope. 🙄
