Welcome to your weekly round-up of the best deals available online. Our team filters out the dross to leave just the solid gold deals.

This week we have perhaps the most iconic Lego set of them all, the perfect companion to the latest Netflix show everyone is discussing and a handful of great boozy bargains to help you unwind after work.

There’s also a blast from the past, and a portable audio player that will almost certainly sound a lot better than your phone.
