The full list of LEGO Ideas sets retiring in 2021 and 2022

LEGO Ideas is notorious for its short-lived sets, so knowing what to prioritise can be tricky – but Brick Fanatics is here to help with a full list of what’s retiring in 2021 and 2022.

Four of the crowdsourced sets are due to retire this year, including two that were resurrected at the end of 2020 with brand new product numbers. That means 92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V and 92177 Ship in a Bottle – formerly 21309 NASA Apollo Saturn V and 21313 Ship in a Bottle – will have been on shelves for roughly a year.

If you’re au fait with the LEGO calendar, you’ll know that’s a pretty limited window of availability for any set, suggesting these two revived models might not have sold as well as the LEGO Group hoped. On the other hand, it could just mean the company always planned for a second short run – but either way, you don’t have long left to grab them.

The other two sets retiring in 2021 launched either late 2019 or early 2020, so their presence on this list is a little less surprising. Here’s the full rundown of LEGO Ideas sets departing this year, according to Brick Fanatics’ sources:

21320 Dinosaur Fossils
21321 International Space Station
92176 NASA Apollo Saturn V
92177 Ship in a Bottle

You’ve got a little more time to pick up basically every other LEGO Ideas set on the market right now, however, because they’ll all be around until at least the end of 2022. That includes two sets that first launched in 2019, 21318 Tree House and 21319 Central Perk, which look guaranteed to be among the theme’s most enduring models.

Given 21318 Tree House was originally thought to be retiring at the end of 2020, a two-year postponement suggests it’s selling exceptionally well. The popularity of 21319 Central Perk speaks for itself – it’s constantly selling out online, while a follow-up set is rumoured to be on the way this year.

Here’s the full list of LEGO Ideas sets retiring at the end of 2022:

21318 Tree House
21319 Central Perk
21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay
21323 Grand Piano
21324 123 Sesame Street
21325 Medieval Blacksmith

That’s everything except the newly-released 21326 Winnie the Pooh, which doesn’t currently have a scheduled retirement date (understandably, given it’s still only available to VIPs until April 1).

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.
