Every LEGO Monkie Kid set retiring in 2021 and beyond – August update

The vast majority of last year’s LEGO Monkie Kid sets are due to leave shelves by the end of 2021, but possibly the best of them all will still be available into 2022.

While the LEGO Group is apparently scaling back sales of the Journey to the West-inspired theme’s sets in its official brand stores in the UK and Europe, Monkie Kid will continue to thrive at LEGO.com, with at least 12 sets still available in 2022 (as well as any new additions that may or may not launch next year).

Among those is 80012 Monkey King Warrior Mech, one of the theme’s greatest sets to date – and a record-breaker at the time of launch in 2020, although its number of drum-lacquered gold elements has since been surpassed by 76191 Infinity Gauntlet.

Last year’s 80008 Monkie Kid’s Cloud Jet and 80013 Monkie Kid’s Team Secret HQ are also surviving into 2022, but the rest of the 2020 line-up will be gone by the end of 2021 – at least according to Brick Fanatics’ sources – so best to act fast if you want them.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
