As a tradition, LEGO will usually announce retiring sets in October. The LEGO Group have done collectors a big favor by revealing some of their upcoming retirements in their Europe website. The list contains a number of interesting sets, such as the first wave of their BrickHeadz series! Included in the list are:
There are many BrickHeadz, DUPLO and City sets to be retired this year. Since they are mostly non-exclusive sets, they generally aren’t a good investment unless they are at a significant discount.
The more interesting set is the
