Best Sets of These 2017 Retirements

There are many Nexo Knight, Ninjago and Angry Birds sets to be retired this year. Since they are mostly non-exclusive sets, they generally aren’t a good investment unless they are at a significant discount.

75158 Rebel Combat Frigate, 75141 Kanan’s Speeder Bike and 75142 Homing Spider Droid have been available for a more than a year. The retirements of those sets have been expected and come as little surprise.

Note that these announced retirements are just a handful of the sets that will be retired this year, and LEGO may still have some surprises in store for us!

  1. The Rebel Combat Frigade, the Angry Birds sets and the Chima set all look like they will appreciate. The Angry Birds because of the exclusive molds, for now and overall the prints. The Rebel Frigade because of the current size and price and the somewhat *rare* prints on the minifigs. The Chima because of the once again *rare* minifigs plus the fact that Chima as a set series ended in 2014-2015. Hope this helps!

  2. Hello Derek,

    I don’t agree with you. The Angry Birds sets are shelf keepers. It’s an unpopular theme and the target group are kids. Chima is one of the least popular themes and not worth to collect it. In my opinion it won’t be worth collecting it. The Rebel Combat Frigate on the other side is a Star Wars set. Star Wars sets in whole are good investments but the 75158 is not from the canonical plot. It’s from the REBELS sub theme so time will tell…
    Just my 2 cents… 😉

  3. I agree that Star Wars is a better investment but Rebels = canon. So the Rebel combat frigate is now part of the Star Wars canon.
