LEGO sets retiring in 2023

All LEGO sets have a life span before, sadly, they inevitably retire. Usually, this life span is 1 to 3 years. Some of the bigger sets may have a life span as much as 5 years. Knowing the sets that are going to retire gives us an ideal opportunity to plan which sets you really want before they disappear from the shelves.

Some LEGO enthusiasts are also investors. For investors, this is their last chance to invest in sets they believe will do well “post-retirement”. Some investors hold onto sets longer than others. Some specialise in particular themes.

Whatever your reason is, do not miss the opportunity to get the beloved sets you really want for your collection. Keep a look out for opportunities where there are specials or discounts offered. But do not leave it too late.

My list below are those sets I love, I have parted out into my BrickLink store or believe are likely to be great investments.

LEGO Ideas

21325 – LEGO Ideas – Medieval Blacksmith

21326 – LEGO Ideas – Winnie the Pooh

The Medieval Blacksmith has been a super set for collectors. It fits in beautifully into the Castle theme. It is loaded with amazing pieces and minifigures, which has been a really good part out set too.

Winnie the Pooh was another magical set that is retiring soon. This relives an amazing Disney story of the adored Winnie the Pooh. For me, it was an amazing set for parts. The minifigures were snapped up almost immediately. The set gorgeously crafted with lovely parts.

Like the Medieval Blacksmith, this makes a lovely display set and I am sure it will also be a great investment. Do not miss the opportunity to add this set to your collection.

LEGO Star Wars

40539 – LEGO Star Wars – Ahsoka Tano

75309 – LEGO Star Wars – Republic Gunship

Ahsoka Tano holds a special place for me, as it is one of the first sets I reviewed for my website. A very rustic review, but nonetheless, it was a lovely set to build. It is a no-stress build, but it is beautifully crafted. If you can still get this set, waste no time it adding it to your collection.

LEGO sets retiring in 2023 Rebublic Gunship

Some sets feel like they have been around a long time. But the Republic Gunship was only released on 1 August 2021. I watched Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones yesterday and was delighted to see the Republic Gunship. I was instantly excited to see it.

eThis is a stunning Star Wars set and surely it will be in great demand after its retirement. It is pricey, but might be a good bet for collectors and investors.

LEGO Harry Potter

76386 – Hogwarts : Polyjuice Potion Mistake


LEGO sets retiring in 2023 Harry Potter

There is so much to love in the Harry Potter LEGO series. The celebration of the 20 year anniversary brought us many amazing sets. If the golden minifigures were top of your list to collect, these sets will be retiring soon, and there is limited opportunity to add these to your collection.

This set combines well with 76389 – Hogwarts : Chamber of Secrets. There is a secret tunnel beneath the sink that connects the two rooms that expands the play possibilities further.

Apart from the golden Harry Potter minifigure, there are three other minifigures in this set; Ron Weasley, Hermione Granger, and Harry Potter.

LEGO Technic

There is a long list of LEGO Technic sets retiring at the end of this year. So many really good sets among these that are retiring. Of these, my favourites are:

42122 – Jeep Wrangler

42123 – McLaren Senna GTR

42127 – The Batman – Batmobile


42122 – Jeep Wrangler


LEGO sets retiring in 2023 Technic Jeep

Somehow the combination of yellow and black seem to be a favourite. There are many sets which prominently feature these colours. This set is well designed and keeps the rugged look that we expect to see in a Jeep.

I like this set because it looks great and plays well. In keeping with the ruggedness of the Jeep, the suspension system operates independently. There are yellow shock absorbers in the back that nicely cushion any tension on rear axle. The front axle swivels and bounces nicely to give the feeling of a good shock absorption system.

42123 – McLaren Senna GTR

LEGO sets retiring in 2023 Mclaren Senna

Perhaps not everyone’s favourite, but for me, I love the blue and black colour combination. While there is limited playability in this set, it does have a basic working piston array just behind the driver’s seat. The steering is operable by a technic gear on top of the car. The doors open and hit the mark as a “gull-wing” system.

42127 – The Batman – Batmobile

LEGO sets retiring in 2023 Batmobile

I only recently built this set, but it was an amazing experience. I loved the challenge of the build. It was engaging throughout. Although slow going (for me), it gave me so much confidence and pleasure to take on more intricate builds. And it does immense justice to the “The Batman” DC genre.

The finish of set is stunning and looks the part it should for a Batmobile. The additional features make it truly special. There is a white light in front (which glows a menacing yellow) and a red light in the rear that give this fearsome appearance. The pistons at the rear work smoothly. All in all, this is a monster that you need to have in your collection.

In conclusion

There are so many great sets that are retiring this year. This is just a small feature of those sets that are in their twilight. Make sure that you have these in your collection.

Happy building!
