LEGO has been popular for decades – but don’t take the constant demand for granted, as some of the best-selling sets can be taken off shelves at any time.
The company have already announced that dozens of sets will be retired in 2024, but there’s no need to brick it: they’ve already released a comprehensive list, giving you plenty of time to pick up any must-haves before they disappear.
This list will be focusing on the sets currently in-stock at Zavvi at the time of writing, including dozens of exclusives you won’t be able to purchase anywhere else. For the comprehensive list of every single set that we’ll be waving goodbye to this year, head over to Brick Fanatics, who will be offering updates as the year progresses.
We will also regularly update this blog when we get wind of any sets that are about to go off the market, but as of January 2024, these are the LEGO kits confirmed to be making their grand exit.
Here at Zavvi, we love LEGO, and we love to bring you exclusive sets you won’t find anywhere else – which is why we’re sad to be bidding farewell to the following this year.
First up, the replica of the Atari 2600 console is a must-have for video game obsessives who want to put down their controllers and pick up some bricks. From LEGO Technic, the NASCAR® Next Gen Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 is a fantastic construction toy for petrol-heads – and those too young to drive! – who want to bring the thrill of the race into their home.
And before we dive into all things Star Wars, we’re taking a minute to shout out the exclusive R2-D2 collectible model, one of the most sought-after items on site. We should also stress that, just because something is retiring in 2024, doesn’t mean it will necessarily disappear on 31st December – we still have the Republic Gunship, which LEGO retired in December 2023, although stocks are very limited, so check here to make sure it’s not too late!

The force may be with you now, but it won’t be if you let the year end without picking up these in-demand items before they disappear!

Since launching in 2011, Ninjago has become one of LEGO’s flagship brands for younger builders, and it’s easy to see why. I mean, who doesn’t love ninjas?

LEGO take pride in unleashing the imaginations of all ages, and for younger creators, there’s no better starting point than the Friends and City brands.
In the LEGO Friends collection, young builders are introduced to the wild world of Heartlake City, where they can be whisked everywhere from an igloo holiday to a Mars space base and everywhere in-between – what other collection can feature intergalactic adventures and a hot dog food truck?
