“lego sets retiring 2016 cheap _where are legos on sale review”

@slovakiasteph – if you’re not near a LEGO store with a winter toy shop, you could always try calling them and have them ship one to you. Most stores I’ve called are willing to do this. Or you can watch Amazon. It pops in stock every now and then. I’m a bit of a toy shop hoarder, so I check Amazon a lot for this one. Others do as well, and there is a thread on ToysNBricks (http://www.toysnbricks.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=36&t=3235) for it. I can try and remember to update this thread as well.
Another easy way to reduce the price: Just order your pieces by Status, and scroll down until you find the pieces marked with a blueish cross. Those are the extra pieces that come in every set. Delete them immediately. In my case, those were US$ 20 less.
This set marks the 10th Anniversary of the Modular building sets containing numerous “easter egg” references in use of brick elements, colors and architectural details to every Modular set released over the previous years.
Some of those sets that are getting retired are in the LEGO Creator Modular Buildings series. We have discussed the sets many times (see the LEGO Modular Houses section) as they are very popular with teen and adult LEGO fans. The #10197 LEGO Creator Fire Brigade set was retired last year, and the #10211 LEGO Creator Grand Emporium is also now considered retired. You may still be able to find this set at official LEGO stores, however online it is shown as sold out.
Lego Duplo Creative Ice Cream set #10574 comes with all 24 pieces to create different ice creams. This popular set has been discontinued and is hard to find, sells at on line auction for approx $50. There is no box or instruction manual, but easy to use your imagination with these. Overall in very good played with condition with mild play wear and a few small minor marks. Please see photos. We are clearing a lot of stuff including other Lego. Contact through Gumtree messaging please. No
Lego collectors who are interested in the best Lego sets that resemble such fantastic and historical monuments say that this set is a must have. One customer stated, “I’ve been a Lego fan since I was a child and bought this product the moment I saw it. It took about 10 hours to complete. The final product is very tall (box says 42″ tall, but mine measured about 45″) and absolutely beautiful.”

It is difficult to single out one LEGO set from the rest because the manufactured quality, effort, imagination and creativity are recognized in every single set, with no difference. In my opinion you cannot make a mistake, whichever you choose. I started bying LEGO sets long time ago and still, after all these years, I see that they preserved all the trademarks of their products and plus added some improvements over time. A job well done!
Hubby turning a major bday this year and grumbling about getting old. Very involved with the CG and the CG Aux so I decided to let his inner “Coastie” come out and play. He laughed, he swore and then laughed some more, and now can’t wait to take his new “boat” to the next CG Aux meeting!
I disappeared into the Harry Potter Lego Internet rabbit hole and here are a few of the places I’ve found to buy discontinued Harry Potter Lego sets, or even used Lego pieces — all without breaking the bank.

A set is made for about 2 years, then that stops, then it all depends on how quickly the existing stocks sell out.. usually it is 3 years total from ‘release’ to ‘cannot find them from Lego’. There ARE exceptions of course, such as sets made for specific stores, such as the Limo and City townhouse. At least in the States the Limo with chopper was out for an astounding handful of months even though Europe had them for about 6 months before, and then it was only Lego and Walmart selling them..
My grandkids and I assembled a great sturdy play mat by gluing lego plates and a road kit I found to a large piece of particleboard. We used a blue baseplate as a lake and the kids love “driving” the truck to the lake to put the boat in. It was easy for my seven-year-old to assemble and all the kids love playing with it. It was a great addition to the Legos I keep in their playroom at my house. Legos are the best toy out there, even though they are expensive but well-worth the cost!! One caution: there are a lot of tiny pieces so make sure it is assembled with adult supervision.
What do you think? How do you like the LEGO Creator Palace Cinema? Do you have it already? Or are you planning to get it before it is retired and sold out? Which one is your favorite LEGO Modular Building so far? Feel free to share your thoughts and own review in the comment section below! 😉
In late 2007, a new motor system was released called Power Functions; it included within Lego set 8275 Motorized Bulldozer. It comprised a set of motors, two IR receivers, remote control and a battery box, thus resulting in a remote-control model.
10185 Green Grocer was the third modular building and is a highly sought after set by collectors. Released before the modular building series became as popular as it is today, the Green Grocer commands a very high price today for both sealed and used examples that will likely only continue to rise.
