Update (7/21 | 5:30pm EST):
All emerging reports point to the LEGO Creator Expert London Bus (10258) and James Bond Aston Martin DB5 (10262) as being the latest sets to be removed from production in 2021. This means that going forward, the LEGO factories will no longer be producing additional sets, and only those that remain on Shop@Home and in the inventory at major retailers like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, etc. will be the last copies available for purchase. You can purchase these sets at the hyperlinks below, and it's definitely recommended that if you've been on the fence up until this point that you make a move soon, as the Creator Expert Theme always fetches an increased price on the secondary market.
It's not clear for how much longer these sets will be available, but usually once these reports come from The LEGO Group, it's not long after that the sets begin disappearing from shelves. There are also some initial reports that anticipate when the rest of the current LEGO Creator Expert lineup will begin hitting the EOL list. Keep in mind, that the EOL list is subject to change based on sales and demand, so these initial reports may change down the line.

Original Post (4/7 | 2:00pm EST):
We now have more details on which Creator Expert sets will be retiring between March and Summer 2021. As we reported previously many of the sets we reported began retiring in March, and the rest are expected to begin retiring in Summer 2021.
If you missed the previous article, the information sourced here is garnered as a result of contacting major manufacturers to confirm whether or not they'll be getting more of these sets in stock, or when their orders for these specific products will end. That being said, just because the major retailers will no longer be getting them doesn't mean that Shop@Home won't be carrying them going forward.
