The circus is in town, the elephants arrived.
I'm in shock when I saw the prices on Bricklink for these used elephants: at least 24 dollars, without cloths and mahout. Yesterday I saw one elephant on a collectors fair for 40 euros and I was wondering if such price was really what collector's would pay for it. And yes someone did because later I noticed the elephant was sold.
Some sellers are asking unbelievable prices and I sometimes can't figure out why. Like these elephants, they came in set 7414 in 2003, which is in my opinion not old, but it seems that some collectors consider this item as not very common.
So be it. I bought this group in 2004 on a Dutch auction site for 20 or 25 euros which seems to be a good investment, altough I'm not selling them.
But in my Lego town they will perform regulary...
