It's-a-me, a bargain: Lego Piranha Plant hits record low price

One of my favorite Lego sets of the year, the Lego Piranha Plant, has tumbled to a record-low price ahead of the weekend.

US readers can currently pick up the villainous pot plant for $53.99 at Amazon instead of $60. Meanwhile, UK fans can grab the Lego set for £43.49 via Amazon rather than £57.99. Either way, that's the Lego Piranha Plant's lowest price. I've never seen the kit get such a big discount Stateside, and it's only received that discount once across the pond.

It's unclear how long this offer will last, but it suddenly feels like we don't have to wait until this month's Prime Day Lego deals to snag a bargain.

Should you buy the Lego Piranha Plant?

This kit looks great in pictures, but it's even better in person. The Lego Piranha Plant is full of character despite only being 540 pieces strong. 

While some may have preferred a larger, more articulated version, its modest size makes it a fairly stress-free build. Even if you're not a diehard Lego builder and don't have the best Lego sets on your shelf at home, you'll get on well with this one. Indeed, members of the GamesRadar+ team have bought the kit for themselves… and a Lego Piranha Plant actually sits on the desk next to me in the office. Seeing it and its goofy grin always cheers me up.

Actually, I think that the only Super Mario set able to match it is the (much larger) Mighty Bowser.

Will it drop further in price? Possibly, but I can't see that happening until a major sale. And even then, my answer depends on where you are in the world. It could dip even more in the UK because the Lego Piranha Plant has enjoyed a few discounts there before, but in the US it's only just reached that level. As such, I'd be surprised if it dropped much more when Amazon's Lego deals get started later this month.
