All good things must come to an end, and in this case five Lego sets are due to retire in the near future. In total, two Lego space sets and three Lego Star Wars sets will leave shelves in the immediate future, so you'll have to act fast if you want to build any of them.

The two Lego space sets are the International Space Station and Apollo Saturn V Rocket models, the Lego Star Wars sets include the Imperial Star Destroyer, Scout Trooper Helmet and Imperial Probe Droid. Interestingly, these Lego sets feature in our best Lego space sets and best Lego Star Wars sets guides. 

The two Lego space sets will be taken off shelves and offline come the end of the year with the Lego Star Wars sets also retiring in the near future.

The former is part of the Ultimate Collector Series and is a 4784-piece spectacular that features swivelling guns, minifigures, a display stand and information plaque, two blaster pistols and a tilting radar dish.

The Scout Trooper Helmet is a 471-piece buildable model that comes with a display stand and plaque and last but by no means least, the Imperial Probe Driod comes with 683 pieces, a display stand and information plaque. While the end is near for these five models, they certainly made their mark during their time in stock.
