Got mine yesterday from Shop at Home Germany with 46S6


It sells in Europe...but I think it's a really bad seller here in North America. I'd like to see a currently manufactured set here in the states. So that leads me to this question. Is it possible to retire a set in one continent, and continue to manufacture in another?

We´ve seen sets retire with as much as 6-8 months difference and we have seen sets like Ocean HQ that were not released in Europe so everything is possible. We have also seen sets that had production stopped months before they retired, like Imperial Hotel or Exo.

I think they have now stopped making it everywhere and are just letting stock run out.

I believe 6860 retired in Europe a full year earlier than in the US/Canada.  There are probably other examples.  So yes, though it's very rare.

Out of stock at the moment at all US online retailers.  The 157 mark seems to have done the job. Only available at Lego Shop now. Surprise retirement in North America or crank up the machines down south?

I'll be sad if this retires.  Not that I think it will do that well (reminds me too much of Medieval Market Village), but I was just getting used to Lego tagging all the retiring sets, which makes buying decisions (the timing of purchases) so much easier.

I say bin the retiring tags completely.

I agree, we need to use our brains and do our own research in order to establish what's retiring and what isn't. We can no longer predict how long a set will be produced for.
