Hi all,
Sorry if this is a silly question (I'm new to the forums) but does anyone know or have a fair idea when ARC-170 starfighter 8088 is discontinuing? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Welcome on board.
    Bottom line is noone knows when any set is going to be discontinued.
    There are lots of people here who love to guess, so you may get someones opinion, but is likely to just be that 'someones opinion'.
    There is a general 2 year shelf life belief but that is not always the case and often sets disappear sooner or stick around for more years.
    If you really love a set, try to get it as soon as you can. If you want it as an investment then you have to gamble along with many others here.

    Think the mods/admins need to create a 'sticky' post for this type of question as it is a VERY regular question.

    Good luck, and again welcome to the forum.

    Hi, and Welcome to the forum!
    There are several discussions on which sets will be next to retire, notably this one. I've gone ahead and closed this discussion, please feel free to repost there. If you have any questions, please address them by PM to myself or any other member of the staff.


    EDIT: Gah! @Princedraven got there first...
