One of the things that keeps the mania of LEGO alive is they retire their sets from active sale after a certain time period. Once you get into LEGO, you will notice they have a pattern of retiring and releasing sets. The end of the year is one of those times were they retire sets in anticipation of releasing new ones on January 1st. If this is all news to you, let me catch you up and give you the latest list of LEGO sets retiring year end 2016.
