True meaning of "Hard to find" in [email protected]

so, I'm planning some purchases so I have a plan for the next few months, and wondering if I should prioritise the "Hard to find" items over others...anybody know what Hard to find actually means? Is this end of the stock? Or simply low stock before they re-stock!?

    It just means that they're not stocked in most retail stores except at Official Lego Stores, online sites, and maybe one mass retailer. Often they actually last longer than regular sets if you're going by that measure.

    Actually Hard to Find means to me that you cannot find the sets in most physical stores outside of the LEGO (and LEGO discovery Zones) brick and mortar stores, some retailer 'flagship' stores like TRU and maybe Targets have in major cities. Otherwise most of the 'hard to find' can be found at most online retailer sites (like Amazon, TRU, Target, etc).

    To be honest there are so many exceptions to where they sell them that to me 'Hard to find' does not really mean a lot and never has. I think what you need to focus on is what sets have been out longer as the older sets (like #10218, #10220, #10214 ) will likely be the first to retire from production of the 'hard to finds'.

    Didn't the Tower Bridge recently get a new box design with an updated part count? I would think that might be an indication that it's likely to stay around a little longer...
