I considered Kohl's empty, too, because it shows that it is unavailable for shipping. Maybe that's just in my region though. Were you able to add to cart?

yes - i can order them but i wouldn't from kohl's.  agree that this set should do very very well given its short production run.  don't have a ton because its hidden side.

I'm excited to see the size of non-padded envelope they have to use for this.

It's kind of shame that some of these sets get overlooked as they are good sets and offer more bang for the buck than the regurgitated Star Wars sets that get pumped out every year.

My son and I have a few and he loves the games on the app. It was pretty ambitious for Lego as they try to combat children's change in play habits. The bus is my sons favorite and it looks good sitting on a shelf. I think the castle and train are going to do well. I missed the boat on Monster Fighters and I dont want to do that again. I dont know if the school will do as well. It may be too monstery.

If the newer sets are on their way out, they will do ok.  I would consider them similar to the last round of Ultra Agents sets, they had a short life and did ok.  They will probably be slow movers though.

That is my only concern - if they move too slow, they may be forgotten.  Then, years from now, they will start showing up on "short-lived" LEGO theme lists and people will become interested.

Personally, I think the bus, train, school, and castle are some of the best looking sets and can be used with or without the hidden side.

I hope they get yearly attention at least with the Halloween theme involved. I'm pretty supplied on the castle, train and ghost labs. Some of the others like shrimp boat, shrimp shack, light house are also pretty good.  I was surely surprised to see the theme discontinued so abruptly.

Another issue will be app support.  Eventually they will stop updating the app and it will break.  This is less of an issue with these sets as they are still playable sets, but the AR sets they had a few back were basically worthless if you didn't already have the app downloaded.

Do you guys think LEGO increased the price of these sets (or reduced the number, rarity, & printed pieces) because of the app feature?

I feel like the quality of these sets can stand on their own aside from the app, but the box art is definitely low class for LEGO.

Zavvi is accepting pre-orders of LEGO Hidden Side: Mystery Castle (70437)

Release Date: 11 December 2020

So what's going on here? Isn't 70437 retiring?

 

$119 when it's been $99 on Amazon. As of a few weeks ago, Amazon had over 1000 of these. They are gone now. Someone snatched them all up. Wish it would have been me!

I think they said something similar about the Disney Castle and those orders already shipped.

It’s been sold out for quite some time. 

2 weeks.  They even cancelled some of my orders with it in there.  Not over-ordering at all, simply marked out of stock days after the orders went through immediately on the first night of promo's or double points, whatever hit the weekend before thanksgiving.

From what I understand, the entire Hidden Side Theme is retiring. No new sets are to be made.

Yup. Thats why the stores arent getting any to stock. What you see is it. I did hear rumblings that the whole theme is getting reworked and may continue.

Maybe somebody at TLG finally realised that the truly abysmal packaging was sinking the entire theme. Imagine sitting in a meeting where somebody suggested that the boxes should have cartoons on them, rather than pictures of the set. Instead of laughing that person out of the room, everybody else must have said 'yes, good idea!'.

Baffling.

I picked up a HS Castle at my local store on the Saturday of VIP weekend for personal build but didn't notice until checkout that the store had already sold out of the Dickens promo. I kicked myself at first for not waiting to get a better deal, even thought about returning it, until I saw the stock evaporate everywhere not long after. Now I'm grateful that I didn't notice that they were out of the promo! That Castle sure disappeared fast. I expect that those of you who bought at retail will be amply rewarded...
