Five retiring LEGO sets to buy in the upcoming double VIP points event

Another double VIP points event is starting soon, and there are a few retiring LEGO sets big and small that you might want to buy while you still can.

Once a LEGO set retires, it is no longer in production and any remaining stock of the model, provided there is any, are the last remnants of that build’s availability. With that in mind, getting them with double VIP points while they are still reliably available isn’t the worst idea when it comes to planning purchases.

We’ve got a few retiring sets that you might want to prioritise during the upcoming double VIP points event, and you can click here for a full list of retiring models.

75252 Imperial Star Destroyer

The massive LEGO Star Wars UCS set recreating the Empire’s most recognisable spacecraft is retiring by the end of 2022, meaning collectors for the range might be keen to pick up the build while they still can. Anyone hoping to get 75252 Imperial Star Destroyer should aim to do so while it is still in stock, and a double VIP points event will help you stock up on the credit for any future purchases too.

Keeping with the theme of huge retiring sets, 71043 Hogwarts Castle is one of the biggest builds in LEGO Harry Potter and presents a portion of the school of witchcraft and wizardry at a smaller scale, allowing you to recreate moments from the movies and display a section of the Wizarding World in your home.

LEGO Technic is also waving goodbye to lots of sets at the end of 2022, including 2021’s 42126 Ford F-150 Raptor. Including 1,379 pieces, the complex creation recreates the vehicle with details that owners of the real thing will recognise. Those without a real Ford F-150 Raptor may still appreciate the functions such as working suspension.

This LEGO Ideas set has already been retired once before and 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V is a re-release of the original model of the same name. The model pays homage to the classic space mission with a tall build for the rocket as well as smaller scenes for the moon landing and the return to earth.

For those who want to pair 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V with another historical space mission recreation in the upcoming double VIP points event, 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander represents the moon landing with a dedicated model all displayed on a single baseplate and featuring details such as footprints and drum-lacquered gold elements. Buying one or the other with double VIP points will help bolster your supply of credit ready for the rest of 2022 as well.
