When is LEGO Santa’s Workshop Retiring?

LEGO 10254 Winter Holiday Train was first released on October 2016. This set will be in the market for three years this October.

The earlier two winter village (10235 Winter Village Market and 10222 Winter Village Post Office) sets were available for three holiday seasons. They were released in 2011 and 2012 respectively. The more recent three winter village entries (10245 Santa’s Workshop, 10249 Winter Toy Shop and 10235 Winter Village Market) have been available for two holiday seasons. The most recently retired holiday set 10259 Winter Village Station had even a shorter lifespan. LEGO released this set on October 2017 and retired in November 2018. This set only has a one-year lifespan. 

If 10254 Winter Holiday Train continues this trend, then 2019 could be the last season of availability for 10254 Winter Holiday Train. These seasonal set naturally does not sell well outside of the winter season and LEGO generally will retire those holiday sets before Christmas. So if you want to purchase this set, then you will have to act fast!

  1. Rumor has it the UCS Millennium Falcon might retire this year. Currently OOS in AU and on Backorder in US. Also 10257 OOS in AU, I still think it might retire this season.

  2. It was actually released in late 2017, even though sets were very sparsely sold in the beginning.

    In Germany, a few employees at different Lego stores hinted not to wait too long if one has an intention to buy the Falcon. But there’s also a list with SW sets EOL dates currently circulating the community that predicts the Falcons EOL date to be in December 2020, so let’s see whether that list beats Thors other rumors 😉
