The LEGO Group has had a much better handle on its inventory across 2021 than in 2020, when it struggled to churn out enough supply to meet demand during the height of the pandemic. But several of its sets are still temporarily unavailable to order, including some that are reportedly due to retire by the end of the year.
Take 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay, for instance: the enormous LEGO Ideas set is apparently on the way out within the next few months, but it’s only been available to purchase in the UK for all of about 20 minutes over the past few weeks. Time is running out to grab it before it’s gone for good, and the opportunities to do so are also few and far between.
If you are keen to pick up that or any other currently-unavailable set, though – such as 10264 Corner Garage or 75192 Millennium Falcon, both of which are out of stock in the US at the time of writing – you don’t need to establish a new religion devoted to the F5 key. All you need to do is sign up for Brick Fanatics’ stock alerts, and we’ll do the hard work for you.
LEGO.com has its own stock notifications, but they’re a one-and-done service: if you miss it the first time (and given how quickly some sets drop in and out of stock, that’s a real possibility), you’ll have to sign up again. By contrast, we’ll let you know every time a set comes back in stock until you manage to buy it – at which point you can disable the alerts with a quick email reply.
Our system is set up for either the UK or US by definition, but if a set is in stock in the UK, there’s a good chance it will be in stock in Europe, too – so if you’re reading this from mainland Europe, it’s still worth signing up for any sets you’re after using the UK option.
