Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Blu-ray set comes with free Hobbit Lego

Sainsbury's UK supermarket chain has announced it will soon offer a Blu-ray version of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug alongside an exclusive Hobbit-themed Lego set.

Warner Bros. Pictures' The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the second installment of a three-part film adaptation based on The Hobbit by novelist J. R. R. Tolkien. The Peter Jackson-directed film, which premiered in December, was nominated for three Academy Awards, and starting next month, you'll be able to watch it at home on Blu-ray. More than 600 Sainsbury's locations plan to offer the Blu-ray film beginning on 7 April.

But that's not all: Lego has created an official Hobbit set, and it'll launch exclusively with the Blu-ray film free of charge. Sainsbury's said the offer is "subject to availability" and that the Lego and Blu-ray set would cost £12.99 in total. You can grab it both in store and online a Sainsbury's website. Additionally, the standalone and non-exclusive DVD version of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug will be available for £9.99.
