Retiring soon list at shop.LEGO.com
One of the most common questions asked in the forum is "when is set xxx being retired?" Of course none of us know the answer, although we can all speculate.
I think the new page will be worth keeping an eye on if you want to be sure to catch particular sets before they disappear for good. (via Toys N Bricks)
Update: We've received the following clarification from LEGO about the list:
- This is a trial for the USA and Canada to begin with to see what impact it has on Customer Service issues regarding retiring / retired products.
- Yes the items on this list really are going to retire soon as in once the quantities we have are gone, they’re gone. They won’t be going on back order and we will not be producing anymore. This is not a sales trick, we’re legitimately trying to inform people that this is their last chance!
