LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle 71043 Retiring 2024
If you have been collecting, playing, or investing in LEGO over the years you may have seen a few sets that were rumored to retire have their tentative dates extended out.
Retirement dates are not set in stone until the LEGO group officially puts the end of life on them and stops production of them.
Most of the proposed retirement dates are gleamed from LEGO retailer sources that are privy to ordering sets for a later period of time (lead times for orders can be months).
Generally, if it is no longer available to order and been available for a minimum of 1- 2 years then, one may assume it is ready to retire due to historical data of previous sets.
Of course, this is in constant change so use any retirement guide as an unofficial estimate.

Lego Investor Take On The LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle 71043
As a Lego Harry Potter fan myself, this is really a good build. It would really take up a huge amount of space, so have reluctantly not made the purchase.
As an investor though, my thoughts are to steer clear of this set until you are absolutely certain it will retire.
Even once it retires you would need to sell this for $950+ to attain 100% ROI if you purchased this at MSRP tax free.
There won’t be a huge onslaught of buyers (lower demand as price rises) at that price right away. Maybe 1-2 years after retirement depending on the supply.
The Lego Harry Potter sets that we are eyeing are the ones with the golden minifigures. Those ones will have a better chance of higher ROI in a shorter amount of time.
But, happy to see this news for fans of Harry Potter saving up your hard earned money to grab this awesome set.
