    What's more annoying, the occasional reseller talk or the reminding to not talk about reselling?

    You know what. I engage in and have no problem with reseller talk. But it took over this thread completely - not just a few comments here or there. This is exactly the type of scenario we had a long conversation about previously and those of us in the reseller community all agreed to try and curtail going forward

    The reseller talk. As this thread is an example, the 'occasional' talk spreads like wildfire. There's an entire portion of this forum where you can talk reselling to your hearts content and no one will say a word. Having to post this is annoying.

    I recall one of my TLG mates saying to me at the time of release that she thought the resellers were mad in thinking they were going to go sky high. It's a set that's going to get forgotten about.

    Of course there will be the odd completest searching for one next year or the year after, but generally it'll only be those around at the time who caught up in the hype that will remember it.

    I'm not so sure it will be forgotten. It will always be remembered for what happens to the stock levels, people's behaviour and the way the secondary market works when a limited edition is produced. They could do another one next year, and I'm fairly sure exactly the same pattern will follow. Just like they could do another exclusive comic con minifig, initial prices would be high and Lego could re-issue it in a set and prices would tumble. We have seen it with Bilbo, and will see it again with Azog. They could do it again with another LOTR/Hobbit character, and still people would jump on at high prices as there is the chance it would not be re-released.

    Will it be remembered for what it actually is? Possibly not. I never saw one, and although it looks a nice build, there are plenty of other nice technic models out there.

    I have this set and I had a trade fall threw. It is sealed has two creases on the corners. Should I keep it for a trade it just go ahead and open it.
