Retiring Soon - open speculation

Recommended Posts

To continue an earlier thread, here are the sets listed on S@H as "Retiring Soon":

 

Friends - Stephanie's Cool Convertible, Olivia's Speedboat, Mia's Bedroom, Series 1 foil packs

Duplo - Train Starter Set, Doctor's Clinic, Emergency Helicopter

Creator - Apple Tree House

Lego Games - Ninjago, Pirate Plank

Chima Speedorz - CHI Battles, Ring of Fire, Target Practice, CHI Waterfall

Technic - Mini Container Truck

LOTR - Gandalf Arrives, Orc Forge

CMF - Series 9

Architecture - Sugnyemun

Marvel Super Heroes - Captain America's Avenging Cycle

Star Wars - Endor Rebel Trooper and Imperial Trooper Battle Pack, Planet Bespin & Twin Cloud Car, Planet Endor & AT-ST

 

Nothing earth-shattering.  Orc Forge surprises me the most.

The ones that you can't "add to bag" are the ones that are really close to retiring or pretty much retired. Sugnyemun has been sold out for several months now so if you see one, buy it!

I had better grab a couple more of those Star Wars battle packs for myself before they go under.

Thanks for the update, Quacs! I was kind of hoping that CHIMA would retire, but unfortunately, not. Rather unfortunate that they don't definte "Retiring Soon". Will be picking up quite a few battlepacks in the near future...

3937 Olivia's Speedboat has been tagged "Retiring Soon" for a while now, and it looks like Stephanie's Cool Convertible and Mia's Bedroom have now been added to the list.

 

They seem to be easy to find in stores for the most part, but might be worth picking up a few for the Christmas season if you can find a deal.

Edit: Crap you said PST... I am on EST

Does anyone know what has happened with 79104 The Shellraiser Street Chase? Has it been retired? And most importantly, if retired, would it be a good investing choice?

That thing is uuuuugly. I mean, I know it's supposed to be, but still... And what's up with the front wheels not touching the ground? It has little train track wheels underneath that roll instead.

As for investment potential: If the 30+ yr old guys here arent singing its praises, and they're not, I don't think it has much potential. If you can't sell turtles toys to an 80's kid, you can't sell it.

Hope you got them cheap. Emazers predicted this set and all the even numbered LOTR sets will be going.

I have two for myself and a Uruk-hai Army set so I'm good for the time being. :wink:

Besides, I was just being facetious as usual. :cheese:
