Promobricks claims that six different sets across five different themes are no longer in production, which means when the current crop sells out, they’re gone for good. That tallies with Brick Fanatics’ own sources, which state that all six of these sets are due to be retired by the end of July.
No LEGO set can stay on shelves forever (unless, perhaps, its name is 71040 The Disney Castle), with the majority of models making way for new waves after roughly 18 months. Some of the sets on this list match that timeframe, while others represent either surprisingly early or relatively late departures from LEGO.com.
75269 Duel on Mustafar, for instance, has been around since January 2020, so feels like it’s coming to the natural end of its lifespan. 71717 Journey to the Skull Dungeons, on the other hand, launched just nine months ago, so its comparatively early retirement could mean it becomes highly desirable on the secondary market.
Either way, you don’t have long to grab these models – so if they’re high on your wish list, you’ll want to act pronto. The good news is that doing so via LEGO.com right now will bag you two gifts-with-purchase (as long as your order comes in above £100 / $100 / €100), including 40449 Easter Bunny’s Carrot House and 40450 Amelia Earhart Tribute.
These are the six sets reportedly no longer in production, and therefore the ones to make a beeline for:
- 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.
