only problem is now - everyone will buy this!
good deal tho

That's the idea- to buy them. Thanks ordered one. Hopefully they grab it off the shelf before someone in the store does.
Big thanks. Wanted this set for the joker. Hopefully he won't appear again otherwise it was an expense Joker!

Thank you! This is an incredible set!

Got a couple, see if they are worth much in a few months, really want to play with it though xD.

I won't be surprised to see this fetching £400 next Christmas if you want it as an investment.

Great set. Great set. Ordered one. Thanks for posting.

I'm tempted as I've wanted this for awhile but turned down the chance of buying it when cheaper (albeit slightly £127). The fact they are retiring this makes me want to jump, but I bought a Sonos Play:3 yesterday lol.... I hate this site at times.

This is easily the best Lego build I have ever done.

i wouldn't hold your breath, i bought it for £160 a year ago when it was 'hard to find' and clearly it's cheaper now!

So glad we got a Taj Mahal a few years ago!

That didn't stay in stock long, C+C'd at my local. Lego have now listed a few sets as "retiring soon" on their site, including Red5 X-Wing and Death Star.

They only surge in price once they are discontinued.
If you look at the last modular building to be dropped, within twelve months it had tripled in price.

Too bad.. No delivery?

About half their stores still have stock.

This is not me having a moan. Repeat: This is not me having a moan.

Now can someone explain to me how a Lego car is considered a bargain at £130?

Because the normal price for this Lego car is £160, so if you wanted to buy it to keep, it's as cheap as it's been and as it's being retired you won't be able to get it at all new before long.
Lego sets usually rise in value once they are retired, and this is expected to do the same, so there's a chance of a large profit within 12 months if you want to sell it.

It was about 6 months ago I saw on this site, £15 (can quadruple into days out) of tesco vouchers if you spend £75 on lego. I thought "hey why not, £75 worth of lego for £15?! A steal.
I'd never bought lego models before, "it's overpriced!!" I thought. The 3 star wars models I bought were meant for Xmas presents, and I built them one by one that night.

Ultimately, this site has cost me £1000s in deals. But lego? This is gonna cost me much more over the years.

I want, I want, I want.

Was that the fire station? I got one from John Lewis last year and they sent it in a plastic bag = big gouge in the box. Had to send it back. Went up 50% in six months

Look up 10179, for the best example. All the bigger sets do well once retired.

The Lego Town hall was about £120 when it was retired in December 2014. These are the completed listings on ebay

The most extreme examples are some of the bigger Star Wars sets which have gone from around £250-300 to more than ten times that.

It does make me chuckle that this deal is hotter than the Smyths 20% off weekend in September when you could have picked this up for £128

Thanks for the reply and I'm not having a pop, I promise I'm not. But what I still don't understand is why it's anything like either £160 or £130 in the first place.

You bought it for RRP and its only cheaper at this 1 retailer who is trying to shift Massive boxed stock from their shelves/warehouse. All large Lego sets like this that once go out of production increase in value. Just bide your time.

OP how did you find out this one is being retired and where can I find a list of retired lego sets

Retiring sets have the "Retiring soon" banner on them on the Lego site...I'd love to see a full list too

If you put retiring soon into the search box on the Lego shop site it brings them all up too

I've had a quick search for a few of my sets and I've come to the assumption that it is only the mega sets like the one posted that shoot up in value once they are retired.

Yep, not everything is a good investment. As a rule of thumb, it helps if it's a £100 or more set from one of the better known themes like Star Wars. It needs to be a good looking model that appeals to adult fans with nerdy tendencies, and if it's had a short lifespan like this has, so much the better.
