Which LEGO Creator Expert vehicles will retire next?

The newly-revealed 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van will become the eighth LEGO for Adults (or Creator Expert) vehicle on shelves when it launches next month – but which ones will retire next?

No LEGO set stays on sale forever (though 10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van gave it a good go), and with so many different models targeting a very similar audience across the LEGO for Adults line-up – plus two more on the way, in both the T2 and 10290 Pickup Truck – something is going to have to give pretty soon.

According to Brick Fanatics‘ sources, three different LEGO Creator Expert vehicles are all on the chopping block for 2021. Here’s the full list of retirement dates as they currently stand:

10258 London Bus – December 31, 2021
10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 – December 31, 2021
10265 Ford Mustang ­– December 31, 2022
10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy – December 31, 2021
10271 Fiat 500 – December 31, 2023
10274 Ghostbusters ECTO-1 – December 31, 2023
10295 Porsche 911 – December 31, 2024

Remember, these dates are always in flux, and the LEGO Group could choose to push these back (or bring them forward) at any time. At the moment, though, 10258 London Bus, 10262 James Bond Aston Martin DB5 and 10269 Harley-Davidson Fat Boy are all scheduled to exit production by the end of this year.

That doesn’t mean you should wait until New Year’s Eve to grab them, though. Chances are they’ll actually leave the production lines a few months ahead of that date, giving the LEGO Group chance to sell off remaining stock before making way for whatever 2022 brings us.

If you’re yet to grab any of those three sets – which run the gamut of vehicles, encompassing a gadget-laden car, bus and motorbike – you’ll probably want to make a beeline for them pretty soon. And if you’re already all caught up? Good news: 10279 Volkswagen T2 Camper Van arrives on August 1, less than two weeks from now.

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.
