For what might be the first time in the history of the set, 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft is on backorder on LEGO.com in the official online store in the UK and Europe. This only comes after the LEGO Group introduced a 40% discount on the build, dropping it from £89.99 / €99.99 to £53.99 / €59.99.
In the US, the discount on 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft was only equal to 20%, offering an explanation as to why the model is still in stock.
Currently, any purchases of 10291 Queer Eye – The Fab 5 Loft in the UK or Europe will be shipped out by August 23, 2022. Note that the set has been discounted on the official online store before at around 30% off, though that wasn’t enough to warrant back order status.
Whether this status update is due to the 40% reduction has not been confirmed as stock may have been lower before the promotion started. However, considering the rarity of such a high discount on LEGO.com, it would make some sense.
