42133 Telehandler, 42136 John Deere 9620R 4WD Tractor, 42139 All-Terrain Vehicle and 42140 App-controlled Transformation Vehicle have all yet to launch, but we’ve already got the first word on how long they’re expected to stick around for once they do.
According to Brick Fanatics’ sources, all but 42140 App-controlled Transformation Vehicle will retire by the end of 2023, giving them a shelf life of roughly 21 months. That’s about on par with the typical lifespan of any regular retail set. The latest CONTROL+ set, meanwhile, should be available for another year after that, alongside the newly-released 42130 BMW M 1000 RR.
Also new this month is 42141 McLaren Formula 1 Race Car, which will be the second-biggest Technic set of 2022 come March 1 (behind only the aforementioned BMW). Like most of its contemporaries, expect to see it last until at least the end of next year. Remember, though, that these dates are always in flux, and therefore liable to change.

- 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.
