    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. 
  • BrickByBrickBrickByBrick Massachusetts, USAMember Posts: 733
    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.

    Man the #40567 Forestmen Hideout is already selling $50+ day one. I knew it was going to be popular but this could really take off especially if production is low.

    It is amazing really, 74 have already sold on BL (in just 22 transactions), 63 of them within Europe (or at least, in Euros). I guess Americans are slightly later in the day  as only one US seller has them on BL so far.

    Any predictions on how long #10273 Haunted House will hang around? I'm looking at all the sets tagged Fairground Collection on the database and I can't really interpret by comparison how much longer it's likely to last. Since it's still here now it seems like it'd be silly not to let it run through another Halloween season, but I haven't bought much in the past few years so I've lost what instinct I had for predicting these things.

    I'm anticipating some major household expenses closer to now than October, and trying to work out whether I can get away with waiting to pick it up, or should just sell some other sets and get it now to avoid disappointment.

    My gut feeling is the run is the typical 2 years and the Haunted house is gone this year, plus I would not be surprised if LEGO 'hardship' price increases in August affect the price as well.

    Thanks - I'd forgotten about the price changes coming, so all in all it sounds like I need to get this thing sooner rather than later...

    #10273 is not on the list of sets getting price increases in September: StoneWars list.
    Neither is it on the 2022 EOL list

    This is not a 100% guarantee that the set will still be available next year, but I wouldn't go out and panic buy it either.

    Buy when the next decent promo is on (the forestman set is meant to be coming back in August).
  • jcb193jcb193 Member Posts: 159
    What are price increases expected to be?  Any list of what is affected?
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 10,567
    It sounds like there are more (as I heard some, if not all, Speed Champion sets will also have a price increase).

    So far the single car sets aren't getting increases, the $30 mercedes 2 pack is going up to $35 and the $40 aston martin two pack is going to be $45

    Which is the next modular to get retired? AS or the bookshop?
  • FollowsCloselyFollowsClosely Member Posts: 1,214
    Given that the price went up on AS and not on BS, I would say Bookshop goes next. But its all a crap-shoot.

    Both are currently expected to retire at the end of 2023. Both saw price increases today in North America and Australia, and most of the bigger sets that are expected to retire this year did not -- not that I said most, not all.

    I thought I saw the end date of the AS for this year, not next.. unless they moved it?

    Santa's Sleigh was such a great set.  I wasn't able to get it last year, but I was planning to buy it along with Santa's Visit in, say, October of this year to have it in time for Christmas.  Little did I suspect that it was going to vanish from Shop at Home at the end of July to make way for the new Christmas sets.  It seemed like the kind of set that would be sold for years and years to come.  Now it's going for $60 to hundreds of dollars on Bricklink.  I realize it's just a simple matter of supply and demand, but is there any chance that someone would be willing to part with a used copy of 40499 for close to its original RRP of $35? I live in the western US.  Thanks!

    Is the Porsche 911 10295 retiring this year or has anyone seen anything indicating it’s on the chopping block?

    My gut feeling is the #10265 Mustang would be retired before the Porsche.

    #75252 showing a ship date of November 4th, backordered in EU too.  Do you think it gets restocked?
