There are few things more relaxing than getting lost in a good LEGO set. Just clear off your dining room table, throw on some music and spend an arvo putting together a new set or two.

While that sounds like a good time in theory, the one major drawback is that LEGO can be ridiculously expensive sometimes, so grabbing a new Architecture or Creator set can be a bit hard to validate sometimes. Even as an adult with an adult salary, a premium LEGO set can set you back a week’s worth of rent.

The good news is if you look around, you can find some exceptional LEGO deals. Amazon in particular has a few decent LEGO discounts going at the moment.

LEGO Art Series ($99, save $100.99)

A LEGO series that probably belongs in a museum. The LEGO Art series lets you create a series of portraits using a whole heap of coloured single studs. This LEGO series is themed around a broad slice of pop culture, with sets ranging from Star Wars to Marvel, The Beatles and even Andy Warhol’s iconic pop art.

This range usually costs $199.99, which is a bit rich for what you actually get. Especially when LEGO encourages you to buy more than one so you can make a larger image. However, most of the LEGO Art range has been discounted over at Amazon for the more justifiable price of $99.

LEGO Ideas Friends Central Perk 21319 ($69, save $20.99)

The One Where They’re All Made of LEGO.

LEGO Disney Mickey Mouse & Minnie Mouse 43179 ($199, save $80.99)

The ambassadors for “The Happiest Place On Earth” have received the LEGO treatment. If you’re a Disney obsessive, this could make for a fun addition to your collection. These LEGO Mickey and Minnie’s are also surprisingly huge, with both figures stand at around 36cm tall.

This Mickey and Minnie Mouse LEGO set will set you back $199, but at least you’ll be able to save a bit over $80 from its usual $279 price tag.

LEGO Creator Harley-Davidson Fat Boy 10269 ($99, save $60.99)

At this point in time the list of things that haven’t been turned into a LEGO set has to be pretty short, right? This is an expert level Creator set, so if you love a good challenge when building your LEGO, start revving your engines. Just make some room on your shelf, because this LEGO Harley is around 30cm long and 20cm high.

You can currently grab this iconic Harley-Davidson for $99, down from its usual $159.99 RRP.

LEGO Architecture Skyline Collection: San Francisco 21043 and Paris 21044 ($59, save $20.99)

I really like LEGO’s Architecture series. For the most part, they’re fun to build and great looking display sets. You can currently snag the San Francisco and Paris skyline sets for $59 each, down from the RRP of $79.99.

They might not have as much detail as a dedicated LEGO Architecture monument set, but they still look great on a desk or shelf.

LEGO Star Wars Mos Eisley Cantina 75290 ($449, save $80.99)

Another absurdly large and expensive LEGO set, the Mos Eisley Cantina’s price has been reduced by $80.99 over at Amazon. So you’ll only be paying $449 instead of the usual $529.

This set expertly recreates the wretched hive of scum and villainy, folding out to reveal Chalmun’s Cantina and includes 21 mini-figs so you can recreate the classic scene from A New Hope.

LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down 75810 ($275, save $74.99)

This is one of the cooler sets released by LEGO in recent years. The one half depicts the Byers household, while the other is the twisted reflection of the Upside Down.

The best part is that there’s no “right way up”, so you can alternate which side is the top or bottom.

This Stranger Things set is usually $349.99, but you can save yourself $74.99 and pick it up for $275.

LEGO Creator Expert Assembly Square 10255 ($299, save $100.99)

Branded LEGO is great, but if you’re someone who just enjoys the process of building something or you enjoy collecting sets that look great on display, this Creator Expert set is probably right up your alley.

It depicts a bustling street corner, with multi-storey buildings that contain unique rooms. This LEGO Creator set’s price is currently a quarter off, so you’ll pay $299 instead of $399.99.

LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian The Razor Crest 75292 ($169, save $30.99)

What, you thought there’d only be one Star Wars LEGO set on here? This LEGO set for The Mandalorian’s ship, The Razor Crest, is currently on sale for $169 over at Amazon, so you’ll save a nice $30.99 off the RRP.

This is a decently detailed set, with plenty of secret nooks and crannies that you can open up. This set also includes mini-figs for Mando, Greef Karga, Grogu, IG-11 and and a Scout Trooper, so it’s got everything you need to recreate scenes from the show.

LEGO Star Wars AT-AT 75288 ($167, save $82.99)

People tend to agree that The Empire Strikes Back is the best Star Wars, so why not grab a set based on one of its many iconic moments?

You can grab the LEGO AT-AT set for $167, saving yourself $82.99 from the usual RRP of $249.99. The AT-AT Walker stands at 13-inches tall, and just over 14-inches long. It even includes a Luke Skywalker mini-fig that you can dangle underneath the AT-AT.
