We have a Lego tastic random selection for you this week. It seems like all the good franchises are getting Lego deals these days. Our first find is the second series of the planet sets. The sets consist of a minifigures, a ship/vehicle model and a plastic planet which we reckon would make a great geeky Christmas bauble. This release consist of an X-Wing, pilot and Yavin (opens in new tab) set, a Cloud Car, Lobot and Bespin (opens in new tab) set and a Scout Walker, Scout Driver and Endor (opens in new tab) set. All for £9.99 . Asda has all three sets at the slightly cheaper £9.79 .

The first range of Lego Lord Of The Rings sets are available at the Lego website (opens in new tab) at prices from £11.99 to £99.99 . We recommend the ”Shelob Attacks” (opens in new tab) set, which is available for £19.99 , you get a teeny tiny Gollum and the Lego spider is just fantastic. You can find these sets a little cheaper if you search around, for example we found the Shelob set for 87p less here (opens in new tab) , however the Lego site (opens in new tab) has a really good points/special offer set up for people who sign up to the site and purchase their Lego there.
