Retired LEGO Shop

LEGO is a Danish toy company that was formed in 1934 that has been a staple in the toy industry. LEGO has created countless themes over the years including LEGO City, LEGO Space, LEGO Technic and various other themes including pirates, trains, castles and many more. LEGO has many licensed lines including LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Marvel, LEGO DC Superheroes, LEGO Harry Potter, LEGO Lord of the Rings, LEGO Batman, LEGO Indiana Jones, LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean, LEGO Jurassic Park and countless others.

LEGO Star Wars is the biggest of the licensed themes, starting in October 1999 when LEGO released their first set based on the X-Wing Fighter. Five more sets followed that month with eight sets based on Star Wars Episode I The Phantom Menace following in November. Since then, LEGO has created hundreds of sets, including massive sets in the Ultimate Collector Series like the Millennium Falcon, the AT-AT and Death Star. Additionally, LEGO has also created many sets based on scenes from the movies such as the Battle of Hoth and the Mos Eisley Cantina.

LEGO City is a theme that allows children (and adults) to create their own city with various sets ranging from police stations to fire stations to hospitals. The sets are designed to encourage imaginative play, allowing children to create their own scenarios and pretend to be firefighters, police officers, doctors, and other important community figures. LEGO City also includes vehicles such as cars, trucks, and helicopters to add to the realism of the city. For older builders there are modular buildings which can be joined togther to form streets.

LEGO Harry Potter is another popular theme that is based on the magical world created by J.K. Rowling. The sets feature iconic scenes and locations from the books and movies such as Hogwarts Castle, Diagon Alley, and the Forbidden Forest. In addition to the buildings, the sets also include characters from the series such as Harry Potter, Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and the various professors.

One thing that makes LEGO so unique is that they retire sets after a certain amount of time, which creates a demand among collectors. Retired LEGO sets are no longer available in stores, making them difficult to find and very valuable. Some retired LEGO sets have sold for large sums of money, with collectors regretting missing sets at retail prices.

In addition to the traditional LEGO sets, the company has also created LEGO video games. These games allow players to experience the LEGO universe in a digital format, completing puzzles and levels to progress through the game. LEGO video games often feature popular franchises like Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, and Harry Potter.

Overall, LEGO has become a cultural icon with its ability to encourage creativity and imagination in children and adults alike. Whether it’s building a Star Wars ship, creating a bustling LEGO city, recreating a massive replica of the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben, LEGO offers endless possibilities for play and learning. With new sets constantly being released and old ones being retired, LEGO continues to captivate people of all ages and constantly break my wallet 🙁
