Every LEGO set retiring in 2022 – September update

As we move into the final quarter of 2022, the full list of LEGO sets retiring by the end of the year is beginning to crystalise – and the window in which to pick them up is rapidly narrowing.

Hundreds of LEGO models will leave shelves by December 31 – or in less than three months’ time – making room for the next batch of sets arriving on shelves in 2023. It’s an inevitable part of the LEGO life cycle, and we’ve prepared another monthly list of every set retiring in 2022 to help you pick out which sets to prioritise from your wish list.

While last month’s update was focused on the addition of this year’s five brand new advent calendars, including confirmation that they’ll only be available for a few months, things are relatively quiet in September. The only changes come in the form of newly-revealed models like 21335 Motorised Lighthouse and 76405 Hogwarts Express Collectors’ Edition making the list, but none are retiring this year.

At the very least, this suggests that the LEGO Group is starting to finalise which of its sets won’t be available by 2023. Pending any last-minute changes (they’ve happened before), here’s a complete list of LEGO sets expected to retire by the end of 2022. Remember to check back regularly for future updates, and deep dives into specific themes across 2022 and beyond.

LEGO Star Wars

    You have the new grocery store 60347 listed as retiring this year? 6 months seems like a very short time to sell this set.

    How do you know this? Doesn’t seem like some of these sets have been out very long, like the series 23 Minifigs?
