Every LEGO Technic set retiring in 2022 and beyond – January update

Nineteen different LEGO Technic sets are due to retire this year, while almost the entire current portfolio will be gone by the end of 2023.

That’s the key takeaway from this month’s update to the list of retiring LEGO Technic sets, which now includes all of January’s new releases. And all bar one of those is currently scheduled to leave shelves by the end of next year, with only 42130 BMW M 1000 RR surviving into 2024.

A huge swathe of sets are destined to depart in the next 12 months, meanwhile, including a couple of heavyweights in 42110 Land Rover Defender and 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor. While the standalone Powered Up elements are currently pencilled in for the end of this year, don’t put too much stock in those: chances are those dates will shift eventually.

The rest of the sets in this list aren’t completely static, either – but as of the time of writing, these are the current planned retirement dates for the Technic portfolio as it stands in January 2022. You’ve still got a good while to grab those sets retiring this year, but this should hopefully give you some idea of where to direct your Technic budget across the next 11 months.

Here’s the full rundown as it stands:

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.

    Greetings and Salutations from Pocatello, Idaho.
    Hello Mr. Wharfe.
    I own an 8480 Lego Technic Space Shuttle set, I bought this set at a Toys – R – Us store in Hiroshima, Japan when I was stationed there during my navy career in 1997.
    I have often wondered how many of these sets were made by the Lego Company?
    Any information that you give would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.

      Hi Darrell – the LEGO Group doesn’t publicly disclose production numbers for the majority of its sets, but it’s safe to assume most run into the tens of thousands (if not more). Whether that was the case in 1997 is trickier to say, but I’d wager there are still thousands of copies out there.
