We have some new information regarding another addition to the 2021 EOL (end-of-life) list—LEGO Stranger Things The Upside Down (75810). As always, the EOL date is always subject to change, but as of right now it's slated for a December 31, 2021 retirement date—and it's expected for production levels to be depleted in the weeks leading into the 2021 holiday season.
As we've seen with other sets like the Creator Expert Assembly Square (10255) and LEGO Ideas Tree House (21318), these EOL dates are subject to change and a lot of times the reason for the change is not always clear and can depend on things like major retailers renewing stock quantities, and overall demand for a given set. Also, it may also be subject to something as an expansion to the product-line within a given Theme.
LEGO recently teased a LEGO version of the Stranger Things Season 4 Teaser, and while it's not immediately clear whether or not they're hinting at an expansion to the Theme—in conjunction with the forthcoming new season of the popular Netflix Series—or whether or not they were just getting in on the hype. A lot of other blogs and news outlets seem to believe there are no new sets forthcoming, which may spell an end to the Stranger Things Theme as we know it. One thing is certain, if this is the end of the Theme, you can expect to see a steep increase in the resale value of the set once it's gone.
Thanks to a recent discussion on Facebook, we now have a little more teaser-related info directly from The LEGO Group's Twitter account. The Twitter user tweeted @LEGO_Group to inquire whether or not they'll be releasing any more info on the teaser, to which the LEGO Group replied, "Stay tuned..."
The only logical conclusion that can be drawn from this is that LEGO is probably going to announce some new addition to the Stranger Things theme! I'm not sure how else you could interpret their response, and most likely they'll be holding their tongues until closer to the Netflix Series' Release date, which is expected to premiere on Netflix beginning either late 2021 or early 2022.
