Originally launched in 2017, the celebratory 10th-anniversary modular building will now remain on sale well beyond the subtheme’s 15th anniversary in 2022. Once scheduled to retire by the end of next year, its departure has now been delayed until December 31, 2023 at the latest.
Moving in the other direction is 10270 Bookshop, currently the oldest LEGO modular building available in the UK and US (10264 Corner Garage is only temporarily out of stock at LEGO.com in Australia). First released in 2020, the set’s pair of 16×32 buildings were slated to stick around until the end of 2023, but will now retire by the end of next year.
Those are the headlines from this month’s update to the complete list of Creator Expert (now LEGO for Adults) sets retiring in 2021 and beyond. The only other changes involve 10272 Old Trafford – Manchester United and 10275 Elf Club House moving forward from 2023 to 2022, which doesn’t feel too surprising for either set.
Another football stadium has just landed on shelves in 10284 Camp Nou – FC Barcelona, while a third is reportedly on the way in early 2022, and there’s only so much shelf space available for big, empty ovals. A new addition to the Winter Village Collection will surely also arrive next year, and with 10267 Gingerbread House on the way out in 2021, 10275 Elf Club House is next in line to go.
Here’s the full breakdown of retirement dates for every single LEGO Creator Expert / LEGO for Adults set currently available at LEGO.com. Several of those disappearing in 2021 may be available at reduced prices across LEGO VIP Weekend, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
