The official online LEGO store has increased prices on a large number of sets. Sets that were previously priced at £49.99 have increased to £54.99 and sets that were priced at £99.99 have increased to £109.99, a 10% price hike.
Additionally, The LEGO Batman Movie series marks an increase in the price of Collectible Minifigures, from £2.49 to £2.99.
It seems that only sets of £49.99 and above have been subject to the price increase of 10%. This refutes news reports based on a photo of a letter allegedly signed off by UK VP and GM Fiona Wright, claiming that all prices would increase by 5%.
