According to information published by Promobricks, the 2016 set is no longer in production. That means that once the current batch of sets has sold out, it will be gone for good.
The 1,167-piece set launched more than four years ago, so it’s no surprise that the LEGO Group is apparently calling time on the model. In fact, its retirement has been on the cards for a while, as it appeared on the original list of sets due to retire in 2020.
You can check out our review of 10252 Volkswagen Beetle here. We concluded that it offers “a satisfying and challenging build experience, and a beautiful finished model that truly captures the car’s unique design.” That makes it a set worth picking up, particularly if you still need to complete your Creator Expert car collection.
The Beetle isn’t the only set you should prioritise right now. In fact, dozens of LEGO sets are due to leave shelves by the end of this year, including 10260 Downtown Diner, 10256 Taj Mahal and 75159 Death Star. Click here to see the full list as of October.
