my spare time isn't what it use to be and I don't have shelving or displays for more more modulars.
My point is, I do not want to wait on buying it to later learn is not available anymore and that I have to pay 3x its price through eBay or another reseller. Based on most reviews they like the set, so I don't know how 'sought after' it will be.
For the already retired sets, that's an average of 3 years availability. Outliers are MS and GG with 1.5 years, and PS with 5.5 years.

Personally I don't have PR/DO/BB yet of the current modulars, so I will prioritize these in 2017. YMMV etc :)
Standard disclaimer: As ever with TLG though, don't count on past retirements to predict future retirements with anything close to 100% certainty. The higher piece count and RRP for this set might also make it behave different from the other modulars. Then again, the Death Star lived/lives forever, and so seems Tower Bridge...
I'll definitely be getting Assembly Square in 2017, but not in February as I already totally blew my budget for that month... in 2016. :D
2 and a half year doesn't sound that bad.
Personally, I don't like that they've shrunken the size of these things in favor of more intricate detailing. I do love the much higher level of detailing but I think they've sacrificed size a little too much, the BB comes to mind as just being an incredibly small bank. May not be a January buy for me but we'll see, I might cave once work bonuses come in...
Great, it has just reappeared on [email protected] for my country, 259 EUR current exchange rate, same as in November when it was added for the first time.
BTW I have already issued an order, couldn't resist...
still need DO, BB, and now i can add AS to that list.
Stop tempting me TLG. I don't even collect modulars...
Damn this has never happened to me, thought you can only see this on pictures of a Lepin modular, not genuine Lego...
It's more noticable in baseplates because they're thinner, and bend much more easily.
with VIP points!
in the UK!
They hadn't even bothered putting Assembly Square on the shelf. Stacked behind the check out desk, with a member of staff going back and forth to get them from the stock room.
When we left at 12:20 the car park was over-flowing. The early bird, etc.
Really enjoying this one. Half way through step 2. And time for bed.
