Noticed that US & Canada seem to have retired it........Europe to follow? I'm assuming they no longer produce it and it's a case of "when it's gone, it's gone"??

    It isn't retired, just on backorder.

    The link is greyed out when the set no longer appears in LEGO's product feed, which happens when it goes on back order for some reason.

    The rumor is December 2020 for the MF and Death Star.

    And January 2021 for the release of the even bigger MilF with 5 more pieces costing £2000

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Death Star and MF both return with price inflation adjustments a year or two after retirement. Like the DS already did once. There is always another Death Star. When my grandkids are watching Star Wars XXXVI in 20 years and I am telling them about how nothing compares to the original 9 and that those are the only real Star Wars there will be a Death Star of some sort getting blown up for the finale. And Lego will still be flogging a DS with updated minifigures.

    When I read this all I could think of Palpatine on that phone call with Vader...

    "What?  Just rebuild it? Real original.  And who's gonna give me a loan?  You?  You got an ATM on that torso Lite-Brite?"

    LEGO assigns retirement dates to each set upon its release but they are periodically reconsidered and sometimes changed, depending on the success of each product.

    #75192 Millennium Falcon might therefore have a current retirement date of December, 2020. However, that will probably be extended for as long as it remains worthwhile for LEGO to produce the set, or they consider it necessary to release an updated version because the model or minifigures appear outdated.

    On that basis, I would recommend treating rumoured retirement dates with a pinch of salt. They might be accurate now but are also subject to change.

    But, have you experienced that yourself? Because Jerry sure didn't, that time.

    Tower Bridge was rumoured for retirement in 2012/13... I think the MilF is safe.

    You should consult the WikiSein, the Wiki about Nothing, because I am not sure those are in season right now!?! Mackinaw peaches perhaps?

    Or... Or... drive up to Long Beach, it is round the corner for you. Go get some lobsters. I mean, they are just sitting out there in the sea, in baskets!

    In my experience the MilF is never safe...

    I like to mash-up my references.  But this discussion is not Sponge-worthy.  Where's the Beef-a-Reeno?

    Cool I never knew this. Thanks!  It always seemed kinda random to me so I just assumed they watched sales figures & had some idea of the trajectory each theme should follow through a sets lifespan.

    For "normal" retails sets, I doubt they move retirement dates. Most themes are planned to start at X and end at Y. There is probably little point in keeping a set alive from a theme that is otherwise retired. I imagine the same is also true for evergreen themes such as City and even most normal retail SW. They will already have new replacement sets at the same price point planned / in production.

    Lego sets are launched with an approx retirement date, fact (however they of course dont release that info on release, else it'd never sell and ppl wait till last minute). It is normally around two years for a life cycle of a product. However, as stated above, it can change for multiple reasons, either being pushed back, or brought forward, ie:
    Sells well (can be extended for more revenue)
    Sells well (can be brought forward, giving it more exclusivity)
    Sells badly
    New possible competing item coming
    Consistent non seasonal seller (see VW Camper)


    Even a best seller can be brought to an end early, to keep it 'exclusive', so, IMO, if you really want a set, get it when you can afford it. I have missed out on a few as I was sure it had a little longer. Also, when it close to retirement, stock always seems to go as ppl dont wanna miss it. Take Ferrari F40 and Lotus last year

    So you're expecting Episodes 10 to 36 to be worse than episode 8? 

    "That's not true, that's impossible!" :D

    Eh, I just find the recent shift from 'Original Trilogy Only!' to 'Original Six Only!' to be humorous and figure it will repeat itself given enough time.
