I've been wondering why people chase and are prepared to pay lots money for hard to find/retired sets, when it is also often possible to source brand new parts on bricklink, and instructions are freely available.
I understand that with large sets such as HH, TH etc the savings will not be great (and may even turn out more expensive to go bricklink way), but with smaller sets such as RI I think it is possible to get the set together cheaper than the asking price, and next to nothing for those who already own a good lego bricks collection as many parts are common.
Is it just because of collecting and the wish to own a (sealed) box? Because if you just want to build the set, display it/enjoy it, then the only thing you need is parts really?
