Top 5 Lego® EOL Investment Sets 2023

🗓 Mon, 30 Jan 2023

As usual, many Lego® sets will retire in 2023. Investing in Lego sets is mainly interesting when they go EOL in the near future. The closer the EOL (End of Life) date is, the less likely it is to achieve a good purchase price.

In this investment guide, we present our top 5 Lego investment sets for 2023. In addition, we'll go into specifics on why we believe there is potential for appreciation. It should be noted that there can always be short-term changes to the retiring date.

Our selection only includes sets that can be assumed with a high probability to disappear from the shelves in 2023. Further, they are still available at good prices. However, some sets are distributed exclusively by Lego itself and for this reason, can rarely be bought cheaply. If you want to buy exclusive Lego sets cheaply, you have the possibility to combine the purchase with Lego VIP points and GWPs.

1. Lego® Creator Expert 10255 Assembly Square

The modulars of the Creator Expert theme are particularly popular in the AFOL community (Adult Fans of Lego®). With Modulars, Lego fans create a miniature city and expand it with the sets of the theme. The 10255 Assembly Square does not represent an ordinary modular, so it is the anniversary set for the 10th anniversary of the theme.

The set was released in early 2017 and is expected to disappear from store shelves in 2023 after a relatively long run of over 6 years.

The RRP of the Lego Creator Expert 10255 Assembly Square set has been raised twice in the past. Originally, this amounted to $239.99, but after the last price increase in 2022, this amounts to $299.99. This results in an average brick price of 7.5 ct/part, which is favorable for Lego in relation to the license themes. With a part out value of circa $415, the set is not necessarily recommended for single parts retailers.

The pure facts should not be weighted too highly in the potential analysis of the 10255 Assembly Square set. Rather, the enormous collecting potential should be taken into account. Accordingly, modulars are very popular among collectors. As a 10th anniversary set, the 10255 Assembly Square picks up on numerous details of its predecessor models. One example is the facade construction, which is based on that of the 10182 Café Corner. Due to the detailed design of the set and the fact that it is an anniversary set, we expect a good performance after retiring. In our detailed analysis of 10255 Assembly Square, we go into further investment potential.

Occasionally, it is possible to buy the Modular Set for under $230 on offer. Alternatively, it is recommended to make the purchase at Lego itself and combine it with VIP points and GWPs.

2. Lego® Creator Expert 10270 Bookshop

The Lego® Creator Expert 10270 Bookshop is another Modular Set. The Bookshop was released in January 2020 and is expected to retire by the end of 2023.

The 10270 Bookshop is available at an RRP of $199.99, which results in an average part price of 7.99 ct/part for a number of 2,504 parts. The POV is relatively low with a value of about $290 and a POV rate of 1.6. However, this is nothing unusual for Creator Expert themed modulars, as they often do not have valuable minifigures and rare bricks.

One of the most important investment criteria for this modular is its collecting potential. Accordingly, this is a unique set that has not yet existed in this form. The target group includes different age groups. The largest is represented by AFOLs. Already today, this target group is one of the most important for the Danish brick manufacturer.

The current market runtime of about 3 years can be compared to that of the 10260 Downtown Diner. This reference set from the Creator Expert theme retired at the end of 2020 and has risen by approximately 81% (as of January 2023) in relation to the RRP to date.

The availability of the 10270 Bookshop is still very good at the moment. In the offer prices below $140 can be achieved. Alternatively, you can buy them in combination with VIP points and GWPs.

3. Lego® Ideas 21326 Winnie the Pooh

The Disney classic Winnie the Pooh was presented in April 2021 on the part of the Danish brick manufacturer in the form of a Lego® set. The target group of the nostalgic set covers not only young children but also adult fans of the classic film. According to current information, the Lego Ideas 21326 Winnie the Pooh will retire at the end of 2023.

The Lego Ideas 21326 Winnie the Pooh set has very good investment key data. The POV of $168.46 is good in relation to the RRP of $99.99. In the offer, the set was already available for under $80. If you also refer to the previous best price, this would result in a POV factor of > 2. The 5 minifigures included in the set make up more than ⅓ of the RRP at the current time. The minifigures are unique and represent the 5 main characters of the Disney classic. However, with exclusive minifigures, it should be noted that reissues of the figures in new sets are always possible. This could result in reductions in value as a consequence.

As already mentioned, the target group for the Ideas set is huge. The nostalgia factor ensures that the target group includes adults as well as children. For single-part retailers, who sell on BrickLink for example, the set is also interesting due to the exclusive minifigures and exclusive bricks.

The Lego Ideas 21326 Winnie the Pooh set can always be bought cheaply on sale. In the best case, a purchase price of under $80 can be achieved.

4. Lego® Architecture 21054 The White House

The Lego® Architecture theme is one of the classics when it comes to Lego investments. The miniature replicas of architectural monuments enjoy great popularity. This is also the case with the Lego Architecture 21054 The White House. The White House represents the residence of the US President and is one of the world's most famous buildings. The White House made of Lego bricks appeared in June 2020 and is expected to retire from store shelves in 2023.

As usual with Lego Architecture themed sets, the RRP is high in relation to the part out value. When investing in Architecture sets, it is essential to pay attention to a good purchase price. Discounts between 35 and 45% are not uncommon and a significant factor for the subsequent value development. The average part price of 6.74 ct/part is relatively low.

The potential target group of the set includes travelers, architecture, and USA fans. As the official residence of the U.S. President, the White House is one of the most famous buildings of all. Attention should definitely be paid to offers. Accordingly, discounts of up to 45% are not uncommon.

5. Lego® Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Lander

As part of the Creator Expert theme, Lego® has repeatedly brought space-related sets onto the market in the past. All of them had an official NASA license and were primarily aimed at adult terminal block fans. The last space set from the officially discontinued Creator Expert theme, the 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Module, was released in summer 2019 and is expected to retire in 2023.

The Lego® Creator Expert 10266 NASA Apollo 11 Lunar Module is available with an RRP of $99.99. The average parts price of 9.20 ct/part is relatively high and is due to the NASA license. The Creator Expert space-themed sets represent important milestones in space history. They have great collector value and can be assembled into a large collection.

The Lunar Module is sold exclusively through Lego itself and a few exclusive partners such as Galeria. Heavy discounts are therefore rare. It is recommended to combine the purchase of the Creator Expert set with Lego VIP points and GWPs to get a good purchase price this way.

Lego® Investment 2023: Our conclusion

The year has only just begun and yet there are already numerous Lego® sets that are very interesting for an investment in 2023. As soon as we get more information about EOL dates, we will continue the list and write more Lego investment articles.

At the current time, the mentioned Lego sets are still available at good prices. However, by the middle of the year, it is expected that the prices of the mentioned sets will already increase. Those who are interested in investing in the sets should accordingly not wait too long before buying. In combination with Lego VIP points and GWPs, all sets can still be bought below the RRP.
