Well it looks like the time is finally here. The iconic LEGO Star Wars Death Star (10188) has finally been listed as “Sold Out” on [email protected]. The status was changed from “Call to check product availability” just yesterday so it may seem that the set will be finally retiring after 7 long years on the market. You can still pick up the Death Star Amazon at retail price and some LEGO Brand Stores may still have some left. I did hear from a source that the Death Star will be gone by the end of the year and it looks like it may be happening sooner than we think. If you have been holding off on picking it up, I suggest you drop what you’re doing and go get it.
There was a rumor earlier this year that a new Death Star set would be coming out in 2016 to replace the current one. With the news of set 10188 listed as sold out on [email protected] combined with the rumor, it’s possible that we will actually be seeing a new one next year.
