We noticed that a massive amount of sets are marked as “Retiring Soon” on the LEGO Europe site, a total of 206 sets to be exact. Usually, when LEGO retires sets in one region, other regions will follow. Some of the sets are already sold out in the U.S. shop, so that may indicate that LEGO will retire them soon in the U.S. market too. So if you are interested in any of the sets on the list, then you better act fast!
Although this list is massive, however, there are no big surprises. We have predicted the sets such us Silent Mary, Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters, Porsche 911 GT3 RS, Old Fishing Store will be retiring this year. Old set like Tower Bridge is finally retiring after more than eight years in the markets. All three LEGO Ideas sets on the list have about one-year lifespan, which is the typical lifespan of the sets in that series.
This is a little unexpected for the Brick Bank and Detective’s Office retiring before Parisian Restaurant. Both sets were released after the Parisian Restaurant. Especially for Brick Bank which only in the market for two years. Guess those two sets are not selling very well.
