Predictions on Discontinuing Millennium Falcons and their Secondary Market Value
Move along...move along
Anyhow, how does it look like for the Death Star to make it to Black Friday/Cyber Monday? Lacking proper funds right now, I can't exactly take advantage of things just yet, but I need that thing soo bad!!
Bottom line, if you see a set you want on sale for BF, do not hesitate.. most sets that go on sale for BF do so because they want the stock gone.
I sold my Mindcraft sets off early as well, but still doubled my money in a week. Not a bad deal when you consider that they can come back into stock at any time.
That said, if that happens - will Lego make a big batch or just another small one that will get gobbled up in seconds?
Especially since Im sure they are called every day at their customer service asking for these (and not just by resellers Im sure)
It still won't be enough... :)
So much for the "just in time" production vaunted by the Ultimate Factories show on Lego, that they can shift production to produce in demand sets within 10 days. :)
If TLG does Portals, they would be wise to make a half million of them in the first run. They won't, but they should. :)
What is the attraction to Minecraft? I understand the price increase due to rarity, but what is special about this set? Seriously...
Old-school NES games w/ box and instructions can go for big bucks too!
Basically you are paying for those unique pieces that represent the characters in the game, and it is more sought after due to resellers and not the popularity IMO..
just switch the search parameter on the front page to minifig
On a similar theme, you could go buy all of a single part that is in plenty now, but may not be tomorrow. The bley levers in 2010 for example.
I play Call of Duty, Resident Evil and Halo. All these games are mature, yet most of the people playing these games are children. These same people probably play Minecraft. I know 2 of my friends do. I still have no interest.
No offense taken by the way :)
To veer things back on topic, I think I'm finally ready to pull the trigger on the UCS IS. I was hoping to wait until next year but all the talk on the forum, even if it is just speculation, has me convinced that I can't take the risk. I just have to plan things carefully - I also want to make my first foray into modulars, which means picking up the Fire Brigade ASAP. I actually much prefer the look of the GE, but I have to take the risk that it won't disappear as quickly.
