LEGO Palace Cinema retiring in 2017?

The 10232 Palace Cinema, a LEGO Modular Buildings series set, is a highly detailed, 2-story Palace Cinema corner building. This set features brick-built entrance doors, posters, sign frontage, tower with spires and rooftop decoration, lobby, concession stand, ticket area, staircase, big screen, projector and reclining seats for the minifigures. Includes six minifigures: child actress, chauffeur, female guest, male guest, photographer, and cinema worker. Vehicles include classic-style limousine.

Is Palace Cinema the Next LEGO Modular Building to Retire in 2017?

Returning to our original question: Will 10232 Palace Cinema the next LEGO modular building retire this year? The answer is more than likely yes. This set was first released in March 2013. This is the oldest Modular Building set that still available in the market. The typical lifespan on these sets is around 4 years, with some exceptions, and any set that over four years old is always at risk of retirement. So this won’t be a surprise that 10232 Palace Cinema is the next set to be retired at the end of this year or early 2018.

Using the history of similar products, the previous retired Modular building sets hold their value very well. Examples of this include the retired 10224 Town Hall and 10197 Fire Brigade. With that said, Palace Cinema is definitely worth purchasing 10232 the Palace Cinema and this will be costly for missing out on this modular building set.

  1. It is no secret that other LEGO orientated fan websites comment on PC set in the similar fashion: as for the investment portfolio one has to take into account: a) its been on the market for such a looooooooong time.. b) RRP purchase price is quite low given the number of the bricks in the set.. c) it just “went off” (released) at the time when Town Hall retired and suddenly everybody realised the potential of modulars.. so sure.. buy it at all costs and hope that in 5-years future you would be still able to sell it at least at the purchase costs.. .. you cant be so naive as to think that this “piece of article” is some sensational investment tip, are you?? 😀
