    October 30 Update: Price has went up by £2 to £17.99. thanks hatcher

    Amazon United Kingdom currently has LEGO Friends 2012 Advent Calendar on sale for £15.99. After factoring 16.7% Europe tax discount and shipping, this works out to be £18.28 for North America. Based on 1.6 exchange rate, this works out to be $29.24 USD. As the set retails for $34.99 US / $39.99 CA, this works out to be 17% off for US or 27% off for Canada.

    The LEGO Friends Advent Calendar has very limited availability in North America. If you missed out picking it up at your local LEGO Brand Store, this may be your last chance!

    We would also note that the Fire Temple deal we reported last week is no longer available for international shipping. As there’s no telling when Amazon UK will put on shipping limitations, you should not wait too long to pick up the Friends Advent Calendar if you want this highly sought after set for Christmas.

    Price for a Friends Advent Calendar Set

    • USA/Canada: £13.33 + £4.95 shipping = £18.28
    • Outside of Europe: £29.17 + £22.58 shipping = £35.91
    • Europe: Base price 1-2% VAT difference + Free delivery
    • UK: £15.99 + Free delivery

    Don’t forget that each additional item only cost an extra £1-2 for shipping. If you are outside of Europe, we would definately recommend buying more than just 1 item as shipping for the first item is very expensive (especially if its not North America)! More of their hottest LEGO deals can be found here.

    Barnes & Nobles online still has LEGO Kingdoms King’s Castle 7946 instock for the regular retail price of $99.99 USD. This is not really a sale, but considering that the Kingdoms line has been discontinued for quite some time, its a surprise to still see this set available.

    Update: All sold out now. For those living outside of Europe, we would recommend contacting John Lewis regarding their VAT/tax since its not being removed during the checkout process. Literally, you shouldn’t have to pay 16-17% tax on it (the tax is hidden in the price of the item).

    If you are outside of the United Kingdom, no fear as these LEGO London Olympic minifigures are now available for direct international sale! They are sold by a Britain retailer known as John Lewis (similar to Sears/Macy’s) and the minifigures are also priced without markups at £1.99 (~$3.12 USD). Thanks to Adamson for the heads up.

    Shipping is very heavy for international shipments. However, the good news is that its only a flat £25 charge (~$40 USD). This means that you can order as many minifigures as you like for the same shipping price. 20 minifigures would work out to be about $5/minifigure, 60 minifigures would work out to be $3.67/minifigure, 120 minifigures would work out to be $3.33/minifigure and so on.
