LEGO 10214 Tower Bridge has flown under the radar this year when compared to other sets that are approaching retirement. There have been many stock shortages for Tower Bridge this year at various retailers but 10214 still has not attracted the same attention as other sets like the Death Star or Pet Shop. Savvy collectors and investors, however, have realized the value in this set and the high likelihood of LEGO Tower Bridge retiring soon.
LEGO’s Tower Bridge is an intricately detailed rendition of the iconic landmark in London. As of this writing, it is the third largest set (by piece count) that LEGO has ever produced. At 4287 pieces, the Tower Bridge is absolutely massive and a very lengthy build. The aesthetic value of this set is very high and it’s a great conversation starter when on display.
When is LEGO Tower Bridge Retiring?
LEGO 10214 Tower Bridge has been available for nearly five years now. By LEGO standards, that is a very long lifespan and for most sets, that would strongly indicate that retirement is imminent. Large landmark models like this have historically been extremely desirable and the selling prices of sets like 10181 Eiffel Tower and 10189 Taj Mahal indicate that 10214 Tower Bridge could become very valuable after retirement. The bottom line is: This set is huge, it’s an iconic landmark and it’s been available for five years. Collectors and investors should not risk missing out on this one, so if you want LEGO Tower Bridge, you should buy it now because the risk of retirement for this set is very high.
