It seems like 21019 is done:

The Entertainer normally don't tag sets as "Discontinued" unless that really is the case. A lot of retailers have also run out of these. I think that these will do very well and I already had my fill last year from Tesco ;-)

LEGO also haven't increased the RRP which could be another sign?

The Fat Lady is in the dressing room now as a mate just tried to order 6 (below the limit of 10) from LEGO Shop at Home and got this response:

 

QUOTE

We’re really sorry, but your recent LEGO® order has been cancelled because it went above our purchase limits for the following item(s): 
21019 The Eiffel Tower

We sometimes put limits on popular sets so that as many LEGO® fans as possible can get their hands on them. If you’ve placed previous orders for a particular item, it may be that you’ve simply gone above the number we’re currently supplying per household.
Although you won’t be able to buy those sets right now, we regularly change and remove purchase limits, so it’s a good idea to keep an eye on our website over the next few months. If there were other items in your order, these can be reordered at any time. 

Kind regards, 

LEGO® Customer Service

That can easily happen if (say) he has ordered 5 sets previously. I have previously found that Lego take the limit across your whole purchase history.

It's only his second ever order, the first was for 2 Yellow Submarines. Yes, I know LEGO looks at entire history per household. Try ordering 10 and see what happens ;-)

Comes up as £36.33 when added to basket... But shows as £28.79 when searched for. Any Amazon expert knows what's going on?

Third party seller?

Sorry, still not buying into ET retirement at this time. Check back in November.

Nobody bought into Town Hall retirement when that went. We're due some surprises, right?

TLG would probably like to sell SOME architecture sets or are they just going to do skylines? I say it stays until at least the summer, YMMV.

Saw 50S6, havent been following the seals discussion, but something more than 4x meant it has another year, right?

Tesco have just restocked so probably 01S7? I think this is one of the very few themes that have potential since the bubble popped. R2-D2 & SSD prices have nosedived so something's up. Just glad I'm done with buying now.

Every day that passes makes retirement in LATE 2017 or afterwards more likely.

If any architecture sets are going to retire outside of usual Oct/Nov period is expect it to be some of the skylines. 

They already retired a lot of buildings last year but there are now 6 skylines available. If any arch sets retire early my money would be on Berlin and Venice.

Venice would be nice as I bought a bunch last year at £16 each. My claim to fame it that I've been to EVERY "Skyline" city ;-)

Venice is still too new and we all know that LEGO can keep a lot of a theme still alive, modulars anyone?

My 2p worth is on the Eiffel Tower toppling first. Tesco have them for £26.55 which is the current cheapest - shame there's no 3-for-2 as this could, just could, tempt me.

Tesco have just dropped the price to £24.69 - limit is 20 per order. Needs to be 3-for-2 as well before I fall off the wagon ;-)

I think we're getting a White House style run on this one. I hope I am wrong.

Hope your wrong, but I think your right on this one.
Too iconic and popular to only last 3 years.

massively hoarded limping out of the gate.  greatness awaits.

well, at least this set has a catchy profanity laced little ditty to sing along with while you build..

enjoy!

Don't hold on to 21019 too long as a larger version may be on the cards. However the £12-Asda-Brigade will do very well, even now.

Well that is the risk with most Lego sets. Is there any information about 21019, or is it just a post to show us your buyin??

No, it's speculation. A set that's been hugely popular for so long is just asking for a bigger and better remake IMHO. A lot of people bought 21019 for £12 from Asda, and they've still been heavily discounted elsewhere. Are your eyes shining green by any chance? ?

I dont get the reference with shining green eyes? Maybe Hulk - mad reference?
