Will 10243 Parisian Restaurant retire this year? We had published a post about this topic in June 2018. We predicted that Parisian Restaurant would be retired last year, however, it didn’t happened 😥😥😥. LEGO had broken the cycle and unexpectedly retired the 10251 Brick Bank and 10246 Detective’s Office before 10243 Parisian Restaurant. Both sets were released after the Parisian Restaurant. Especially for Brick Bank, which only in the market for 2 years. Their early retirement made Parisian Restaurant the oldest Modular Building set that currently available in the market. LEGO released this Parisian Restaurant in January 2014. It will be in the market for about 5 years and 5 months. Generally, the typical lifespan of the sets in the Modular Building series is around 4 years. The longest lifespan set in this series is 10218 Pet Shop, which also has about 5 and a half year lifespan. Therefore, this is a very high possibility that LEGO will retire 10243 Parisian Restaurant next. Probably they will retire this set at the end of this year or early 2020. The price for Brick Bank and Detective’s Office increased significantly in the second-hand market after they retired. The older retired Modular building sets (10224 Town Hall and 10197 Fire Brigade) also hold their value very well. Since Parisian Restaurant is a beautifully detailed set and this will be an excellent addition to the modular building series. So, buy it now before it is too late.
