Getting ready for 2009.
Once again, it is approaching a new year. For LEGO collectors, this usually means one thing: new sets! However, a word of caution, before you start stocking up on Pirates, Power Miners, and City Farm sets, make sure you have everything from this year that you want, as no one outside the LEGO Group knows exactly what will be discontinued. Based on previous years, however, it is almost a guarantee that certain sets WILL be discontinued. For instance: Star Wars Battle Packs, Racers Tiny Turbos, and BIONICLE Matoran are often hard to find around the holidays, and by the time the new year shows up, the next years line-up is there and the last years is gone. Don't forget Mars Mission is being replaced by a new Space line next year, too. Also, anything from 2007 should be snapped up fast, and it goes without saying that any Store Exclusives that are still around won't be for much longer, so grab them while you can!
