Will LEGO Retires 21311 Voltron This Year?

Using the history of similar products in the LEGO Ideas series, they usually have about one-year lifespan. 21310 Old Fishing Store was released in September 2017 and retired in October 2018. 20306 Beatles Yellow Submarine was introduced in November 2016, and retired on December 2017. Also, in 2016, there were mass retirements of five sets (21108 Ghostbusters Ecto, 21302 Big Band Theory, 21303 Wall E, 21304 Doctor Who, 21305 Maze Building). They all had just a one-year lifespan. For example, the 21301 Bird set, it retired at the year-end of 2015.

Since LEGO had released 21311 Voltron on August 2018, therefore this is a possibility that it retires by the end of 2019 or the beginning of 2020. Furthermore, some large retailers (ex: Walmart and Amazon) had discounted this set multiple times throughout this year. So you may be able to get this for a discount before it takes off and defend the universe

  1. Didn’t see any signs yet of the above being retired (despite the usual duration of IDEAS set cycles).

    Interestingly enough though the VW T1 Camper 10220 is not only out of stock in Lego Korea store now but also flagged as “Retiring soon”!!

    • This set is constantly on sale on major retailers (especially Amazon and Walmart). Historically, discounts from them have been a sign of retirement in the past. This set was $144 in Amazon US on July 16.

      With that being said, you may be right too~~ 😀😀

  2. I guess you’re right about the set being discounted a lot recently, even here in Europe where its popularity isn’t too great.

    I just found that the Carousel 10257 is on Backorder in the US LEGO Store. I guess that’s another hot candidate for EOL this year 8)
