The brand new LEGO Technic Bulldozer has already retired in Australia

LEGO Technic 42131 App-Controlled CAT D11 Bulldozer only launched last month, but it’s already listed as retired in Australia.

The most expensive LEGO Technic set of all time – at least in the UK – arrived on shelves on October 1, packing 3,854 pieces, all-new yellow treads, four motors and a CONTROL+ hub. But after less than two months on shelves, it’s already unavailable at in Australia, where it’s now marked as a ‘retired product’.

That would be an unbelievably short shelf life for any LEGO product, let alone a flagship model like 42131 App-Controlled CAT D11 Bulldozer, so it seems likely that this is just an admin error on the LEGO Group’s part. But if it isn’t, we could be looking at one of the shortest-lived Technic sets of all time – and likely, therefore, one of the most valuable.

Given very few LEGO fans down under will have had chance to even consider picking up the A$749.99 behemoth yet, here’s hoping 42131 App-Controlled CAT D11 Bulldozer isn’t actually gone for good. We’ll keep you posted…

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. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.

    Maybe a way of trying to boost sales in other markets?
    Given it got pretty much panned in a lot of reviews and is poor value compared to last year’s Liebherr I would be surprised if they’re struggling to shift them.
