After Christmas LEGO clearance sales

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, and that you may have even gotten some new LEGO sets to build! If Santa didn’t bring you any LEGO this year, or you would just like to bulk up on discounted and retiring sets before the end of the year, remember that most retailers will be clearing out their leftover inventory before filling the shelves with 2018 products. 🙂

If you have some Christmas money burning your pocket, remember that many of the first wave of 2018 sets are already available, including sets from LEGO City, LEGO Creator, LEGO Juniors, The LEGO Ninjago Movie, LEGO Nexo Knights, LEGO Technic, and LEGO Star Wars. To see all the new sets, follow the links to the Online LEGO Shop.

Also, you may want to look through the 2017 sets to see if you missed out on any that you would really like. 2017 was an exceptionally good year with some really amazing sets, including the #70922 LEGO Batman Movie The Joker’s Manor, the #10256 LEGO Creator Taj Mahal, the #70620 LEGO Ninjago Movie Ninjago City, the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square, the #21309 LEGO Ideas NASA Saturn V, the #21310 LEGO Ideas Old Fishing Store, the super cute #75187 LEGO Star Wars BB-8, and the ever-elusive #75192 LEGO Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon (hopefully, availability will be better next year). To see all these beauties, along with all the other 2017 LEGO sets, visit the Online LEGO Shop.

As the new sets are coming in, older sets are getting retired, so this is a good time to keep an eye on the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop. Expect 20-50% off on sets that LEGO really wants to move. If you have an official LEGO store near you, you might want to see what they have on clearance, or just visit the Sales and Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Other places you can check for discounted LEGO after the holidays is at big-box stores like Wal-Mart, Target, and Toys’R’Us. Keep in mind that many times labels on the boxes and prices on the shelves will not be adjusted right away due to the after Christmas chaos, but you can take up the boxes to a price-checking station to get the most current price. It is a bit inconvenient, but the good thing about it is that nobody else will know that LEGO is on sale, so you don’t have to fight other bargain hunters.


If you plan to look for deals online, you can check the websites of all the above mentioned big-box stores, and also the Amazon LEGO Store. Usually Amazon’s prices are the best, as they like to undercut everyone else, so if you just want to visit one place, that would be your best option. Here is the link: AMAZON LEGO STORE

These are the places I’m planning to check myself for after Christmas LEGO sales. If I find any good deals I will post them in the comment section below, and you are welcome to list your finds as well. Members of the online LEGO fan community have been great at alerting each other about discounts at this time of the year. Happy LEGO huntin’! 😉

    I noticed that since the release of the lego movie they don’t do big clearance sales like in the past. I remember being able to buy some really great sets 50% off after Christmas. That’s rare nowadays.

      Yeah, I remember those good old days! And yes, those sales are fairly rare with the popularity of LEGO. But sometimes you do find them. One of my local Wal-Marts is doing clearance sale right now, but not the other. So it really depends.

    I noticed that (in the UK) the Winter Village Station is marked as a ‘retired product’. I’m surprised its been retired after such a short period, especially when considering some of the other ‘Winter Village’ theme sets have lasted a few years.

    I wonder it’s down to poor sales and reviews ? I myself did not buy this, and that’s the first Winter Village item in a few years that I haven’t purchased.

    • admin December 26, 2017, 2:47 PM

      That’s interesting. In the US, it’s on backorder, but you can still buy it, and it doesn’t say anything about retiring soon. It may just be a glitch. Previous Winter Village sets were available for at least two years. It won’t make sense for them to retire it until the train is still available. But that’s just me talking. 😉

    There are few sets on sale at Lego right now, but I think sometimes they add them in batches over a period. The Batcave is $70 off, so that’s pretty good.

    • admin December 26, 2017, 2:48 PM

      Yes, I would suggest checking back every day until the end of the year, and the first few days into the new year. They did upload sales in batches after last Christmas as well.

    I’ll do the” wait see game”. I know the new sets that are coming out and I’m at an impasse on what’s my next move for more Lego sets. It also depends on what sales are going to happen in the next few days . Right now the stores seem to be pick over and the left overs are the sets we already have or the sets that nobody wants . I made the mistake of pulling all of my NINJAGO sets to see what I have , I think I’m good . I don’t need anymore sets in that theme (for now).

      I haven’t really seen any major clearance sales locally either. I did notice though that they are different from store to store. So for example, one Wal-Mart would have some sets on sale, while the next one wouldn’t.

    Nothing in our area. Just clearing out Christmas decorations.
