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.

Remember, December 31 isn’t a hard cut-off date, and the 2021 batch could well disappear any time between now and the beginning of 2022. These dates are also liable to change, but they’re accurate for the moment.
