Dozens of LEGO Star Wars sets are due to retire by the end of 2021, so here’s what you should be prioritising if you’re hoping to catch them all.
Most LEGO sets have a standard shelf life of around 18 months, but there are plenty of outliers in the LEGO Group’s current portfolio – and even among this list of Star Wars products that are due to be on the way out by the end of the year.
Some are directly-to-consumer sets with a longer lifespan than others, while some are regular releases that are slightly less common than they would be expected to retire. Either way, the end result is the same: come the end of 2021, you’ll no longer be able to grab these sets from LEGO.com.
According to Toys Daily Wiki’s sources, the following five sets are scheduled to retire by the end of July 2021:
75266 Sith Troopers Combat Pack
75269 Duel on Mustafar
75272 Sith TIE Fighter
LEGO.com UK has sold out the last entry in that list, less than one year after its initial launch. The rest of sets arrived in January 2020. Therefore, a July retirement is in line to the average lifespan of most models.
There will be a wider range of sets that disappear by the end, along with some surprises.
75249 Resistance Starfighter Y-wing Starfighter
75251 Darth Vader’s Castle
75254 AT/ST Raider
75256 Kylo Ren’s Shuttle
75267 Mandalorian Battle Pack
75270 Obi-Wan’s Hut
75271 Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder
75273 Poe Dameron’s X-wing Fighter
75274 TIE Fighter Pilot Helmet
75275 A-wing Starfighter
75276 Stormtrooper Helmet
Ship Transport of 75284 Knights of Ren Transport
75286 General Grievous’s Starfighter
75291 Death Star Final Duels
75292 Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport
75293 Resistance IRT Transport
40391 First Order Stormtrooper
31200 Star Wars The Sith
75317 The Mandalorian, & The Child
Some of those are quite logical. The Rise of Skywalker sets such as 75249 Resistance Y–wing Starfighter will already have been available for almost two decades by then, while the majority of the summer 2020 set are also suitable for retirement.
Perhaps most surprising from that list is 75292 The Mandalorian Bounty Hunter Transport, which only launched in 2020 and has proved popular enough that it’s been incredibly hard to come by since.

Bear in mind, though, that the LEGO Group has been known to extend the shelf lives of sets at the very last moment – so while this list reflects current retirement dates for these products, they’re not set in stone.
