Every LEGO set retiring in 2021 – October update

All five of this year’s LEGO advent calendars slot into our updated list of sets retiring by the end of 2021, which also sees two models pushed back to 2022.

A LEGO Super Mario Expansion Set and a LEGO Harry Potter BrickHeadz three-pack were both originally scheduled to leave shelves in 2021, but will now remain available into next year. Scroll down to their respective theme lists for more details, then reshuffle your LEGO buying priorities accordingly.

Those changes point to the ongoing flexibility of this list, so keep an eye on Brick Fanatics every month for the latest word on the next batch of LEGO sets due to retire. For the moment, here’s a theme-by-theme breakdown of every single LEGO set we’ll be saying sayonara to before the year’s out.

Some of these products could easily see generous discounts across LEGO VIP Weekend, Black Friday and Cyber Monday next month, but if you’re really keen on any of them, it might be wiser to grab them just in case they sell out before then.

LEGO Star Wars

LEGO Star Wars 75251 Darth Vaders Castle edited

There’s little to no change in the retiring list of sets for LEGO Star Wars in December 2021, with the only addition being 75307 Star Wars Advent Calendar. Make sure you get the seasonal set before the year is through for the exclusive Mandalorian minifigures.

Otherwise, one of the first sets in the LEGO Helmet Collection, 75276 Stormtrooper Helmet, will retire by December 2021 alongside the two Star Wars Brick Sketches.

Still retiring by the end of December is 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, as the Captain and crew of the Black Seas Barracuda sail into the horizon one more time. Two other LEGO Ideas models will be leaving the official online store with the re-released 92177 Ship in a Bottle and 21320 Dinosaur Fossils each offering unique building experiences.

The renamed LEGO Creator Expert or LEGO for Adults theme hasn’t seen any newly-retiring sets added to the line-up in September. Anyone who has yet to grab any of the larger sets listed below, including the function-filled 10261 Roller Coaster, will want to do so before December 2021.

Jump up, kick back, whip around and spin to LEGO.com before December if you’ve been looking to buy any of the following NINJAGO sets. The full collection of the Epic Battle Sets won’t be available past the end of the year, making their four exclusive ninja minifigures a lot harder to find.

LEGO Batman/DC Super Heroes

LEGO DC Batman 76139 1989 Batmobile lifestyle 1 resized featured

LEGO DC Super Heroes is light on changes in October, with no new sets scheduled for retirement compared to last month. That means that the same range of nine DC and Batman builds is leaving the official online store before the end of 2021, including the massive 76139 1989 Batmobile and its three minifigures.

LEGO Super Mario

LEGO Super Mario 71369 Bowsers Castle Boss Battle

There’s just one change for LEGO Super Mario this month: 71367 Mario’s House & Yoshi Expansion Set will now retire by July 2022 rather than December 2021, so you’ve got an extra six months to grab one of the smaller video game expansions.

The only way to get the larger of the brick-built Bowser figures in 71369 Bowser’s Castle Boss Battle Expansion Set will still be retiring this year, though, as well as two of the Power-Up Packs, for those collecting the alternate costumes for Mario.

LEGO Creator 31107 Space Rover Explorer

LEGO Creator collectors will need to act quickly for these eight sets, as a variety of unique models won’t be available for much longer. Outer-space explorers can look to 31107 Space Rover Explorer for a build beyond the stars, with models representing everything you need to discover an alien world and life-form, as well as two other build options – just like every set in the 3-in-1 theme.

Racing away from LEGO.com before the end of 2021 are the same five sets as last month, seeing off another full wave of the theme.

LEGO Disney

LEGO Disney 71044 Disney Train and Station 45

Few themes can cover such a wealth of content as LEGO Disney, with everything from theme parks to mythical dragons represented in the range.

Unfortunately, some of that Disney magic can’t stay on the official online store forever, as the following models are scheduled to retire by the end of the year. This includes 71044 Disney Train and Station, which could pair well if you already have 71040 The Disney Castle or are planning to buy the new 40478 Mini Disney Castle.

LEGO Jurassic World

75936 JURASSIC PARK 2HY19 envr

You don’t have much longer to welcome yourself to Jurassic Park, as the huge 75936 Jurassic Park: T. rex Rampage is one of five creations in the theme scheduled for extinction.

If the larger model isn’t to your liking, a previous range of dinosaur-centric builds will be retiring soon too, with 75941 Indominus Rex vs. Ankylosaurus offering enough inspiration to start a Jurassic World display.

LEGO Stranger Things 75810 The Upside Down 14

The fourth season of Stranger Things has just received a brand new trailer, while the LEGO Group’s theme continues to feature just one set.

No other models based on the series have been announced, meaning 75810 The Upside Down might be your only chance to get minifigures for the cast before they return in the upcoming instalment.

LEGO BrickHeadz

LEGO BrickHeadz Pets 40481 Cockatiel featured

Pets, holidays and a galaxy far, far away: there’s only one theme where those three topics can come into play, with LEGO BrickHeadz providing the perfect playground for statuettes that encompass all kinds of subjects.

A total of 16 BrickHeadz builds are leaving the official online store soon, including one half of the Minions range in 40421 Belle Bottom, Kevin and Bob, and the limited-edition 40490 NINJAGO 10. Collectors of the theme might want to act fast if there’s any missing BrickHeadz on your shelf.

At the same time, 40496 Voldemort, Nagini & Bellatrix will now hang around until 2022, so you’ve got a little more breathing room to grab that one.

LEGO Minions

LEGO Minions 75549 Unstoppable Bike Chase

Still scheduled to retire before the end of the year is 75549 Unstoppable Bike Chase, as the only LEGO Minions set to do so before the corresponding film has been released.

Not to worry, though, as five other creations will still be available when the movie releases – but anyone hoping to get the Gru minifigure might want to make a beeline for the bike chase, unless you plan on purchasing 40511 Minions Kung Fu Training.
