    Everything I've heard was that POBB was being retired completely this year.

    I would say it's gone for good.

    Its “EXIT” date in the BS database is Dec 31 2021. Although there isn’t a lot of data yet on how accurate those exit dates really are.

    I've been out of the LEGO loop for 5+ years, so apologies if the answer to this question is obvious. Is it likely 21322 Pirates of Barracuda Bay is permanently discontinued, or is it simply out of stock for the holiday season?
    Multiple sources have it being discontinued by the end of 2021, so if you can find it in a local B&M shop or online for retail I would grab one…

    Found this just now.  Won’t receive until after holidays.  Still regular price though.

    I wonder how long 10261 Roller Coaster was in stock at 20% off. I would have purchased it at that price.

    not at all as far as I know. Maybe in certain stores.

    It wasn't in stock online when that discount appeared. It was sold out some time ago online. I guess anything is possible and it briefly appeared back in stock at some point, but I doubt it. LEGO [email protected] has a habit of showing discounts for sets long sold out online.

    I feel like the discounted price for sold out sets are for return purposes when people try to return gift items without receipts.

    Is there any indication that #40426 Christmas Wreath will come back next year?  It could easily be a perennial set, released each Christmas for many years.
    If it's not coming back, maybe it will be cheaper to buy in the summer.  It's currently $50 on eBay now, up $15 from its $35 MSRP.  Wow, I hate missing good sets.

    I think those are the prices for any remaining in stock in retail stores...and they make the online price match.
