Every LEGO Icons set retiring in 2023 and beyond – January update

A total of 16 different LEGO Icons sets are currently slated to retire within the next 12 months, and there are some surprises among them – including two modular buildings and 10497 Galaxy Explorer.

The smaller of the LEGO Group’s two flagship 90th-anniversary sets (next to 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle) is scheduled to leave production by the end of 2023, which would give it a shelf life of roughly 15 months. That’s a relatively short run for a set championed by the adult fan community for resurrecting LEGO Classic Space, and which has turned up on plenty of ‘best of 2022’ lists.

Also due to retire in 2023 are 10255 Assembly Square and 10270 Bookshop, perhaps accounting for no modular buildings leaving shelves in 2022. Elsewhere, the LEGO Group’s fourth-largest set of all time (by piece count) is heading for the exit in 10276 Colosseum, along with three other 2022 releases – including 76989 Horizon Forbidden West: Tallneck.

You’ve got plenty of time yet to grab the likes of 10294 Titanic, 10295 Porsche 911 and 10302 Optimus Prime, however, while the newly-released 10312 Jazz Club is due to stick around until the end of 2026 at the time of writing. These dates (as always) are subject to change, and many likely will shift over the course of 2023, so check back with Brick Fanatics for regular updates.

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.

    From a little info I found the Lion Knights Castle (10305) is retiring at the end of 2023. But I obviously see that you say it will retiring in 2025. Let me know.

    Thank you!

      According to our sources, it’s still retiring in 2025. However, these dates are subject to change. Still, it’s not been tagged with the ‘last chance’ label on LEGO.com that I can see.
