Six retiring LEGO sets that will earn you double VIP points and a GWP right now
If you’ve had any of these six LEGO sets on your wishlist, now is the time to get them before they retire, getting you double VIP points and a free GWP to boot.
As the LEGO Group continues to expand on its ever-growing range of sets of themes, that inevitably means that some sets will need to retire. This includes older sets that have come to the end of their run, as well as more recent sets that you might not have had a chance to buy yet.
With a double VIP points event on now, as well as a free 40582 4×4 Off-Road Ambulance Rescue with orders of £95 / $100 / €100, both until February 20, now is as good a time as any to grab any of the retiring LEGO sets on your wishlist before they disappear forever. Here’s a look at some of our top picks of retiring sets that will get you over the threshold for the GWP and earn you double VIP points.
6 – LEGO Star Wars 75288 AT-AT
Price: £149.99 / $169.99 / €169.99 Pieces: 1,267 Minifigures: 6
This iconic build from the LEGO Star Wars theme is perfect for both play and display, with the ability to suspend a Luke Skywalker minifigure from the AT-AT, just like during the Battle on Hoth. The larger 75313 AT-AT is a whopping £724.99, so this could your last chance to get a more affordable brick-built version of the imposing vehicle. 75288 AT-AT would usually earn you around 1,192 VIP points, but this will rise to 2,384 points during this special event.
5 – LEGO Ideas 21325 Medieval Blacksmith
Price: £129.99 / $149.99 / €179.99 Pieces: 2,164 Minifigures: 4
Journey back to the Middle Ages with this quaint Medieval Blacksmith, complete with a colourful blue roof and a horse and cart to transport its four minifigures back and forth. The charming details carry through inside, with interactive bellows that can activate the LEGO light brick for extra authenticity.
4 – LEGO Marvel 76209 Thor’s Hammer
Price: £104.99 / $99.99 / €119.99 Pieces: 979 Minifigures: 1
An impressive display piece, 76209 Thor’s Hammer is designed to scale with Thor’s lightning-powered weapon from the MCU. Its display stand is complete with blue bricks that mimic the light and colour of electricity, as if Mjolnir had just come crashing to the ground.
3 – LEGO Icons 10270 Bookshop
Price: £169.99 / $199.99 / €199.99 Pieces: 2,504 Minifigures: 5

Price: £114.99 / $129.99 / €129.99 Pieces: 1,677 Minifigures: 0
10290 Pickup Truck is 33 cm long, giving it enough space to capture authentic details from real-life vehicles, as well as being packed with seasonal accessories.

1 – LEGO Art 31203 World Map
Price: £214.99 / $249.99 / €249.99 Pieces: 11,695 Minifigures: 0
As the largest LEGO set ever, 31203 World Map is well worth adding to your collection. What’s more, it won’t take up any extra shelf space as you can hang it on the wall. You can customise it to your preference, centring any continent from around the world or even zooming into smaller areas, depending on how you arrange the studs.
