Will LEGO Solo: A Star Wars Story sets retire faster than the Kessel Run?

In recent years, LEGO Star Wars sets that based on the new movie have a shorter life span than those based on the original trilogy (Episodes 4 through 6). Those original trilogy sets have a typical lifespan around 2.5 to 3 years. However, sets that based on the new movies generally have about one-year lifespans, like Rogue One sets in 2017. With the new Star Wars Episode IX coming in December this year, LEGO has to make room for the new sets. So Solo: A Star Wars Story sets are in danger to be retired this year. Like the Solo: A Star Wars Story movie or not, there’s no denying that the sets that based the new movie are both beautiful and well designed! We think the Kessel Run Millennium Falcon looks fantastic 🤗 😍 😘! Star Wars fans and collectors who are planning to buy those sets should act quickly! Purchase the Solo sets before LEGO retires them. Currently, Walmart has LEGO Solo: A Star Wars Story sets on sale right now and they are up to 60% off. Free shipping for orders over $35. Some of the noteworthy sets including multiple Solo: A Star Wars Story sets, Ninjago Destiny’s Bounty 70618 and Harry Potter Hogwarts Express 75955.

Retiring Sets


  1. Hi, I had a question about your most recent post. You say that the Star Wars Solo sets are at risk to retire, but then at the end you list off Destiny’s Bounty and Hogwarts Express. Are you saying that these other movie sets are at risk of retiring as well, or are you just listing these because they are also on sale at Walmart? Thank you

    • Good question and sorry about the confusion. We just listed Destiny’s Bounty and Hogwarts Express in the article because they are on sale in Walmart. We haven’t heard any news or did any researches regarding their retirements 🙂

  2. Kessel Run Falcon is out of stock in Lego store Denmark and Germany
