If you held off on getting any LEGO Galaxy Squad sets, it looks like your time is up. The theme has officially been retired and has been removed from LEGO Shop@Home. Although you can still find the sets individually if you search hard enough on the site, you can’t purchase anything. The theme was first introduced in 2013 and had two waves since then and had a mixed reaction with fans. Some really liked it because of the elements that came with it, some just didn’t get into it at all. Personally, it seemed kind of cool but wasn’t my kind of thing.
If you still need to pick up a couple of the LEGO Galaxy Squad sets, Amazon as well as Toys R Us currently has them on sale. I highly suggest picking them up before prices start to rise in the next few months.
What were your thoughts of the LEGO Galaxy Squad theme? Did you like it? Did you not like it?
It looks like it’s almost time to say goodbye to the LEGO Galaxy Squad theme. LEGO Shop@Home has discounted every set in anticipation of the theme coming to the end of its cycle. So if you’ve been holding off on picking up any of these sets, now is the perfect time to do so before everything is out of stock. Also remember you have about a week left if you want to get the free LEGO Creator Balloon Cart (40108) with purchases of $75 or more.
