LEGO’s Retiring Soon List Features Almost 200 Sets

2018 is almost coming to a close, which mean next year we’ll be getting a heap of new sets. Of course all those new sets means that production of some older sets will have to stop.

The Australian online store has marked 198 sets as retiring soon. It’s an extensive list that covers most of the existing themes. Unfortunately “retiring soon” is a bit of an abstract marker, as LEGO doesn’t specifically state when a set will actually retire. Despite the uncertainty it’s clear that if any of these sets are on your wanted list that you should get them sooner rather than later.

You can see the full list here, or check out the handy table at the end of the article.

I’ve done a bit of digging around to find some options for buying a few of the more expensive sets. You can read that breakdown below.

42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS
The best price I can find seems to be Amazon, with a list price of $419.

42055 Bucket Wheel Excavator
With the code P5OFF you can get this for just $322.05 from the Hobby Warehouse eBay Store.
Shopforme has this available for $279.99.

10251 Brick Bank
Currently on sale at Myer for $199. They also have a bonus Christmas ornament. If you don’t care about the bonus you can use code P5OFF to get it for $189.05 via the Myer eBay store.

21310 Old Fishing Store
This is being sold on Amazon by Tate’s Toys with a list price of $229.99. Alternatively you can pay RRP at Myer and get the Christmas bonus.
Also available from shopforme for $187.49.

10246 Detective’s Office
Best option seems to be Myer at $179. You’ll also get the bonus set.
Another one with a great price from Shopforme – they have it listed for $160.99.

10247 Ferris Wheel
Shopforme is charging just $202.99 for this one.

If there is something else on the list you desperately want to find let me know in the comments.

    Was the Ghostbusters HQ *ever* on sale? I dont think Big W ever actually received any stock while it was their exclusive, and Amazon is currently charging almost twice RRP for it. Really sucks that such a cool set went its entire life without being discounted.

    • Mike Reply

      It was, but you had to get lucky! I got 20% off at Big W, and heard of others too. But yeah I agree, it was one of those ones that was super rare.

      • Wt Reply

        Most I found at a single bigw was about 30 during a 20% sale. Got mine during one of the sales with an extra employee discount. GBHQ never last more than half a day before they effectively sold out everywhere afaik.

    I would like to see fewer sets released in 2019. Last few years has been expensive trying to keep up with buying the big sets. There’s a bunch I’ve given up on adding to my collection, I just don’t have that much disposable cash, and I’m an AFOL with a decent career, but also 2 little kids and a mortgage.

    Old Fishing Store is $187.49.

    Anyone seen the Snowspeeder cheap? Weirdly never seemed to go on sale anywhere 🙁

      • Wt Reply

        Only remember seeing this on sale once. Bigw didn’t seem to want to discount this set for some reason? Shame as I’m sure they could sell soooo… much more…

        • Monty Reply

          I did see it twice at Big W on sale, as I missed the first and was lucky enough to pick it up on the second. Sold out really fast.
