Earlier today, Warner Bros released a new LEGO Dimensions trailer featuring Christopher Lloyd and the Back to the Future Doc Brown Fun Pack (71230). Clearly the focus was on the Doc Brown character but if you watched closely at the trailer at the 2:00 mark, they show a glimpse of Sauron from Lord of the Rings.
As we know by now, there wasn’t an official Sauron LEGO minifigure released when the theme was still going and many fans have been waiting for that particular minifigure. LEGO Dimensions could be a platform to release Sauron whether it be in a Fun Pack, a Team Pack, or even a Level Pack since there are already some LOTR characters already announced in the game such as Gandalf, Gollum, Gimli, and Legolas. We’ve already seen many exclusive minifigures for LEGO Dimensions that will be included in the game so I wouldn’t be that surprised if we see Sauron be added in the future.
What do you guys think? Do you think that a Sauron LEGO minifigure could be coming to LEGO Dimensions? Let me know in the comments.
Starting today, Toys R Us is having a 2 day sale on select LEGO products. The first deal is a 2 for $5 on the Series 12 LEGO Collectible Minifigures (71007). Basically you are saving $3 for every two that you buy which is a pretty good deal considering that they go for $3.99 each. This is an in-store only offer. As you can see from the image above, TRU stores are stocking a whole lot of them. I can personally say that I put out six brand new boxes so if you’re in San Diego and are still looking for them, the La Mesa TRU has them.
The other notable LEGO sale is $15 off for select LEGO Lord of the Rings and LEGO The Hobbit sets including the Lake-town Chase (79013), An Unexpected Gathering (79003), Pirate Ship Ambush (79008), and Battle at the Black Gate (79007). These are pretty good deals for sets that are soon to be retired. This offer is valid for online and in stores.
Thanks to Stephen for the heads up.
I don’t usually do deals but Amazon has a pretty good one going on right now with a BOGO 40% off sale on select toys including LEGO sets from various themes like Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, and Castle. Add a set to your cart and another of equal or lesser value and that one will be 40% off. Some of the sets already are already discounted so you’ll be getting a better deal.
One good deal is the LOTR Pirate Ship Ambush (79008) which has a discounted price of $82.50 and if you buy another one, you’ll be saving $33 on the second one making your total $132 or just $66 each. This is a pretty good way to build up your collection of ships. Another deal is the LOTR Battle at the Black Gate (79007) where you can have a full gate just like the film. Check out the full list of eligible sets here.
