The Dark Knight-inspired build has been on our list of LEGO sets retiring in 2022 for some time, and while the majority of products on that list can be expected to hang around until at least the final quarter of the year, 76239 Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown has apparently already retired at LEGO.com in the UK and Europe, where it’s listed as ‘sold out’.
It’s proof positive, if ever you needed it, that December 31 isn’t a hard and fast retirement date: instead, it’s just the point at which any given set will definitely no longer be available to buy through official channels. It’s always been possible for products to sell out months before the end of the year, as the LEGO Group typically ceases production of retiring sets much earlier, then simply sells through its remaining stock.
For 76239 Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown, it looks like the last supplies have already dried up on this side of the Atlantic. The 422-piece set is still available in the US, where it retails for $39.99, but there’s no telling exactly how long it will last there – so if you’ve got it on your wish list, it’s probably a good idea to grab it as soon as possible.
If you’re in the UK and ruing missing out, the good news is that 76239 Batmobile Tumbler: Scarecrow Showdown is still available at Argos – for now, anyway. If the LEGO Group is no longer carrying the set through its own online store, it seems unlikely that many more copies will find their way to third-party retailers, so again you’ll probably need to act fast to secure a copy.
With exclusive Batman and Scarecrow minifigures in the box, along with an iconic Bat-vehicle, this is one DC set that could quickly rise in price on the aftermarket once fully retired.

- 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.
