Every LEGO set retiring in 2021 – December update

Here’s your final warning on dozens of LEGO sets that are due to retire by the end of this year – many of which have already sold out online.

With just weeks to go until our calendars start reading ‘2022’ (where exactly did the past 12 months go?), we’re very much in the endgame for any LEGO sets leaving shelves this year. And according to our sources, that’s everything in the huge list below, across themes including Star Wars, Harry Potter, Marvel, Minecraft, NINJAGO, Creator Expert, Technic, Ideas and… well, everything.

If you’ve left it this late to work through your wish list, though, you might find that you’re out of luck: some of the biggest and best sets on this list – such as 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, 76139 1989 Batmobile and 75275 A-wing Starfighter – have already sold out at LEGO.com, and won’t be coming back.

Your best bet for those is grabbing any remaining stock at your local LEGO Store (or through third-party retailers like Amazon and Zavvi), or turning to the aftermarket pronto before they begin to rise in value. Browse through the list below for a full rundown of everything leaving shelves this year – and fingers crossed the sets you’re after are still in stock…
