Did Lego run out of 4 digit set numbers finally? I was confused by xycury's post thinking they were poly bags.

The revolvers in that picture look strikingly like the old M*GA BL*CKS ones......what the heck was wrong with the classic LEGO revolver? It was perfect!

Wait, so they're doing Lone Ranger now too? Are we basically seeing the death of all non-licensed Lego lines aside from Town?

they didn't run out, but Lego knew they would eventually so they revamped the number system. I think all 2013 will be 5 digits and of course all future sets.

How do you figure...
Ninjago
Monster Fighters
Galaxy Squad
Legend of Chima
Creator
Friends
With City, that makes 7.

Licensed
SW
LOTR/Hobbit
Marvel/DC
TMNT
Lone Ranger

Non-licensed has more sets than the amount of Licensed.

Monster Fighters won't have new sets next year, but there are romors that we will get classic Castle back.

We have to remember that while Lego is making a lot more lisence sets than they did a few years ago, they still make twice as many classic sets as they did 20 years ago. Lego in general just makes a ton of sets a year.

I'm digging the Lone Ranger teaser. That could be fun. After watching some youtube reviews, the galaxy squad sets have my interest, too. They look like a lot of fun!

That's actually a very good point which I didn't think of originally. While there is certainly more licensed sets coming out these days, there's more sets in general coming out.

Yeah I noticed that when I started to think about the three year rule. Lego sets used to be around for three years before being retired. Look at the numbers in the early 90s, it's about 125 sets a year, in 1992 it's 96 sets according to Brickset. This year it's close to 600. Sure a lot of that is crap like books and storages boxes, even if it's half garbage it's still 300 sets a year!

Lego no longer makes sets for years, they make sets for a year and if you want the set you better buy it quick, but they still make more "classic" sets than they used to. I wished they would be pickier with their themes, but if they were we wouldn't have the pretty nice Prince of Persia sets. However I don't think anyone here would want to get rid of Star Wars or Super Heroes.

Anybody have info as to whether all the $20 City sets (ambulance, fire truck, caravan, garbage truck, etc.) that are currently sold out at Lego Shop at Home are permanently gone? Seems like they haven't been around too long to be out of production already.

There is a way to check on S&H for sets retiring soon. I saw that list at T&B, this was the second time I saw it, I can't remember what the previous sets were.

Yeah I've seen that page. Its just that usually if a set is still in production but sells out on the Lego website, it goes to "call to check availability" or "temporarily out of stock" status. Usually sets never return from "sold out" status. The Maersk train for example...

I'm still not sure if you saw the link by reading your post but Lego implemented a new tag "retiring soon" on sets that are going to go OOP.

In my experience the "Sold Out" means nothing on S@H, I have seen sale ideas come and go 10 times from "sold out". Sold out there just seems to mean "we ran out and not sure when we will get more", otherwise the set itself disappears.

I'd wait a few days and see what happens, but I wouldn't "worry" until Amazon stops carrying them, which they haven't because they keep jumping from $17-$18 to $20.

The deal is dead. There I talked you out of it. :lol:

It's back to $400 minus 20% so it's $320 now WITH the sale. Target.com is getting to be as bad as TRU.

Has anyone gotten any emails from Lego about an after Christmas sale? Years past they have had decent sales, but after this Black Friday "sale" I'm not expecting anything.

I quickly went to Target to check out when I saw scp89's post only to be bewildered and see your post.

Up until last year the sales on the day after Christmas were amazing. Last year was severely disappointing though.

Skiizim, I'm not trying to be a dick here, but yes I know all about the Retiring Soon page at Lego Shop At Home. I'm not a Lego newbie. ;) But before that page was created, several sets were already marked as sold out. Therefore if they were going out of print anyway, Lego would not have bothered putting them in the Retiring section. They still haven't shown back up in stock yet. Example - the Walmart exclusive Recycle Truck. Around this time of year I monitor sold out sets closely so that I can make a decision to buy them elsewhere and then I won't get stuck having to pay crazy eBay prices down the road. I've been checking on them and keeping a list since long before the Retiring Soon page went up. I was just wondering if any Lego insiders knew for sure about the $20 City sets since they've been sold out for awhile. If OOP, I'll be heading out to get a few...

Someone asked if the $20 City sets would come back into stock at S@H. I don't think they are, they are gone from Amazon now. Just because Lego has a "retiring soon" page doesn't mean every set will be placed in there.

The best bet is to buy them from Target's BOGO50%. Of course the set I want most (car and caravan) they jacked the price up 33%!

They really have turned into TRU.

Yeah, that was 2 years ago... I still remember seeing a stack of $7.49 curve/straight packs of tracks at Lego store and passing on them. God I regret not picking them up... Those things go for ridiculous money now that they "retired" the proper curve piece. Of course I didn't realize it at the time because I hadn't gotten into Lego Trains yet. Now that I have a few trains though, it would be nice to have the "good" curve track pieces.

Oh really? Curve track is expensive? A few years ago Lego was clearing out the 9V things and I bought an insane amount. I still have several boxes of straight and curved in their boxes and only paid about $5.25 a box.

I drove 2 hours away to get some straight/curve track when they went on clearance. This particular Lego store had like 50 boxes. I bought 20...kept 10 for us and ebayed the rest for double and triple what I paid. Now I regret not getting every box they had as we have 6 different motorized trains and that ghost train I still have to work on someday. Nothing cooler than having a bunch of trains running around each other on multiple tracks.

Not amazing, but WalMart has a bundle of the Spiderman Doc Oc Ambush + Captain America's Avenging Cycle for $34. (So basically Cap is $4) Some other bundles too. That Doc Oc set is WM exclusive. Has some odd pieces in light blue. Get it, then put that boxed copy of Captain America in your attic, wait five years, sell for $700.

I got in on that Super Star Destroyer deal at Target before it went back up to $399.99. Plus 4% cash back at ebates along with my 5% off using RedCard. Now to decide if I want to keep it sealed or put it together. We don't have any other Star Wars sets.

The Doc Oc Ambush isn't a Walmart exclusive, btw.
