The LEGO Group recently marked 105 products with its ‘retiring soon’ label on LEGO.com in the UK. Just 61 of those sets and accessories remain in the list, with several having vanished from LEGO.com altogether – and several new additions.
For instance, 10252 Volkswagen Beetle, 75977 Junkrat & Roadhog and 75958 Beauxbatons’ Carriage: Arrival at Hogwarts have all disappeared entirely, suggesting they are indeed gone for good. Given there’s been less than a week since they were added to the ‘retiring soon’ section, it’s safe to say you’ll need to act fast if you want any of the newly-added sets.
Among those is 75244 Tantive IV, which launched in May 2019. Direct-to-consumer Star Wars sets often hang around a little longer than regular retail sets, but that’s certainly not the case here. If you still need to pick up the 1,768-piece model, this could be your last chance to do so.
A couple of Creator Expert sets are also destined for the LEGO history books, with 10263 Winter Village Fire Station and 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van both on the list. The latter set launched in 2011, and remains one of the oldest products in the current LEGO portfolio. Now it could well be gone within a week.
Head through to LEGO.com and navigate to the ‘retiring soon’ page to check out the full list, which even includes a couple of 2020 sets, like 76149 The Menace of Mysterio and 41256 Rainbow Caterbus.
