Inventory issues have blighted the company’s official online store for much of 2020, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. A good chunk of its flagship products have carried the ‘temporarily out of stock’ tag at one point or another – but now, as we head into the new year, five of its most impressive models are once again available to order.
75192 Millennium Falcon, 71043 Hogwarts Castle, 75978 Diagon Alley, 71374 Nintendo Entertainment System and 21319 Central Perk are all waiting to squeeze you of any post-Xmas cash you’ve got sitting around – as long as you’re prepared to wait a little while, or pony up for express delivery.
That’s because LEGO.com orders to the UK are still delayed following France’s recent border closure. While shipping channels have reopened, the LEGO Group’s courier, DPD, hasn’t yet resumed service. Until it does, all orders placed using standard delivery will be added to the backlog.
Given those aforementioned five sets are all currently on back order, though, that might not matter too much. By the time they’re available to ship, DPD could well have resumed service. The important thing is that you can in fact order them – no matter how long they take to arrive – where before you couldn’t at all.
All five sets have shot straight back into the Brick Fanatics Top 20 LEGO Sets List, meaning any one of them would make a great way to ring in 2021 – particularly if none of the new sets launching tomorrow have caught your eye.
