Retired LEGO Star Wars Sets: The Complete List Including What’s Retiring in 2023
Lego sets are one of the most popular building activities that you can find. Whether you enjoy their botanical creations of flowers, or their architect pieces of the Eiffel Tower, or maybe different scene builds from several movies and franchises, there is a Lego set that fits everyone’s needs and desires.
And Star Wars is just one of the many Lego sets that are extremely popular, with most of the sets revolving around the science fiction franchise. But unfortunately, the Star Wars sets don’t stay around forever. There are several retired Lego Star Wars sets that you may have seen, might want to find, or might not know existed in the first place.
There are also Lego Star Wars sets that are about to become retired in the near future, and you’ll need to start saving up to purchase them before it’s too late. If you’re wanting to know everything about retired Lego Star Wars sets, look no further than to this list.
Why Do They Retired Lego Star Wars Sets?
There are several reasons why Lego sets have retired. The main reason is that they’re not making enough profit so making them is just not worth it.
This can happen from popularity dropping, or the price becoming a bit too much for the consumer, or just from having newer, more exciting products on the line that people would rather buy.
While it’s sad to see products go, retiring Lego sets are a way to help Lego not waste money, as there’s no point in making products that are slowing down in sales.

Is It Worth It to Buy Retired Lego Sets?
Due to only having a limited number of sets being made at a time, as Lego routinely retires sets when bringing out new ones, retired Lego sets are often valuable.
Whether the set was only out for a year or a couple years, anytime there is a limited supply of an item, they’re bound to be valuable. Most of the time, it’s when a trend, or franchise, becomes popular once again and the rise for merchandise grows.
But it’s also worth buying one because for hardcore fans, you might not be able to see that particular Lego set again. If you come across a retired Lego set with a decent price tag that you’re comfortable with, it might be worth purchasing not only for the value in the future if you want to invest, but just to appreciate the franchise that you enjoy.
Should You Buy Retired Lego Sets?
Yes, whether you’re looking to invest or support your favorite franchise, retired Lego sets become valuable and rare as the years go on, so it’s always a worthwhile purchase.
Which Lego Sets Are Worth Investing In?
Usually, the Lego sets with the highest fanbase tend to do better than the more obscure Lego sets. For instance, The Lord of the Rings Rivendell Lego set is a great set to invest in. Or perhaps the Star Wars Dark Trooper Helmet. There is also a Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle that is a great purchase for fans, as well as those that are looking to invest a bit.
Pretty much any popular media is a great way set to invest in if you’re looking for a decent turn around. Usually the bigger, more beloved names like LOTR or Star Wars will get a better investment that others.
What Happens to a Retired Lego Set?
Retired Lego sets are just sets that are no longer produced. Whenever the last one is sold on the Lego store, then that is the end of sales for that Lego set until it’s sold and purchased on secondary marketplaces like eBay or auction houses.
Some sets, if not selling at all, may be sold in bulk or even destroyed to make room for newer, more trendy sets.
Where to Buy Retired Lego Star Wars Sets?
