Every LEGO set retiring by the end of 2021 – August update

Here’s a full list of every LEGO set currently scheduled to retire by the end of 2021 – including a few that are likely to disappear at any moment.

Dozens LEGOSets that span themes Star Wars? Creator Expert? Harry Potter? IdeasMore are expected to leave shelves by the end the year, opening the door for new ranges and direct–to-consumer specials in 2022. Some of these items are still available for many years, while others disappear after a short production run.

If you’ve been paying attention to Brick Fanatics’ updates this year, you’ll also notice that a few sets’ retirement dates have either moved forward or back in the past couple of months, so it’s worth browsing this list very carefully if you’re after a specific model. Here’s an example: 21322 Pirates of Barracuda BayHe is likely to retire in 2021, rather than staying in 2022, as originally planned.

That’s demonstrative of how in flux these dates are, so they’re really all liable to change at a moment’s notice. These dates are valid for now. LEGOAccording to Brick Fanatics’ sources.

We’re hoping to see at least some of these discounted for this year’s Black Friday and VIP Weekend shopping events, but there’s no guarantee that they’ll stick around that long – if they’ve already left production lines, as some of these surely will have, then once the current stock is depleted, it’s gone for good.

These sets were available on shelves in 2020 and earlier, and are now ending the 18-month production run that most sets enjoy. That said, direct-to-consumer sets are usually the exception to that rule – but not so for 75275 A-wing Starfighter, suggesting the original trilogy ship maybe hasn’t sold as well as anticipated.
