Wonder if there will be 26 cancellation notices
I would rather a take a loss on a few of these than a larger set.
Imo that set is a "too obvious" investment with how well those two above did after EOL
If they paid 100-130 for those sets then they are not making as much as they think, especially with eBay and paypal fees (if involved)
If they buy a set that is 150-200+ they are more likely to make their money on those. Less of those are found in B&M stores and just too expensive and paradoxically causes people to wait until they are done THEN start paying a lot more for them.
If they happen to get a bunch of 100 dollars on Clearance or sales or whatever, it is not bad BUT if they bought those in a B&M store then they are also rolling the dice those are not tampered with boxes where garbage is in them, which means they are writing off any profits from those.
Also, as you pointed out, they are more readily accessible for purchase for people budgets which means there will most likely be a ceiling for those prices.
I have yet to see one person saying oh man I cannot believe I bought a Taj Mahal, Effel Tower, Grand Carousel, or that large technic mobile crane for RRP and said they got hosed on that buy. Heck IS just went out and it hitting 340-350 on eBay (last I checked, maybe it has changed).
I think your other note is key as well.. You have a Ton of these..
So do many many others.
Again to each their own and I think much of it also depends on how much time you are willing to spend to sent out 100 packages instead of 50 for example.
I mean if you want to take your time to send out a ton of boxes for a 20 dollar profit per then you are entitled, but I think larger is less maintenance IMO and simply many people do not realize how much time this can consume.
Technic Excavator 300-350
Maersk Train 200-225
C'Mon man. What kind of list is that? Lol :)
I think it if it is truly gone I think it will spike, many people regard it as one of the nicest sets for the Holiday sets so far..
Also the Cottage is back to call to check for product availability on LEGO.com US as well as MMV
Oh also forgot to put Minecraft for when it sells out for the 65th time at [email protected] before Christmas, although now its status is back to 'sold out' not 'temporarily out of stock'
10219 Maersk Train - $280
10217 Diagon Alley - $290
4842 Hogwarts Castle - $248
10212 Imp Shuttle - $422
8043 Excavator - $306
4184 Black Pearl - $169
Sort of wished I picked up some Maersk Train but that just flew under my radar.
Do you have some sort of algorithm you use that spits out the values? Or are you assuming some sort of percentage gain that gets you those numbers?
Not being critical, it is just something I have wondered about from time-to0-time.

Since its release in 2010, 10213 Shuttle Adventure has proven to be very popular! Although the model was designed for a 16+ target audience, our consumer call center has brought to our intention that many younger children have been building and playing with the model. As a result, the Direct team has decided to look at the model once more to see what changes could be made in order to provide a better build and play experience for a slightly younger target audience. 10231 Shuttle Expedition may look similar to Shuttle Adventure in many ways, however its build is very different and offers several advantages.
The fuel tank has been reinforced with supports to strengthen the assembly
The landing gear is strengthened to function better across many different floor types
The Cargo doors can now be more rigorously opened and closed
The entire build has been reworked to limit opportunities for misplacing elements
Astronauts now have wigs in addition to their helmets (1 male, 1 female). Face prints are also different.
The new set now has 1,230 elements
New Satellite can be securely positioned on the new mechanical arm 10231 Shuttle
Just curious if I have a while to go, and can afford to get the Grand Emporium first.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
As for an investment, I think the HH is a bit special and will be a highly desired set for years to come, especially f acquired via BOGO sale, or some kind of 25% minimum discount.
$199 by xmas is my target.
There are no movies out for HP now, and judging by how the LEGO sets did in the first run a few years ago when there was no movie out at that time, Id say it may or may not go up to 350, I'm guessing it may but not as fast as if another Potter movie is released IMO. Im guessing about 300...maybe, but I have a few I would not mind if they go up
I have a few myself. It's a win win situation for me if they exceed $350 by Christmas.
HH and orthanc(if it turns out to be as good as i imagine it will be), will be two of the most impressive sets of recent times.
Im sure people will look back at 2013- 2015 in the distant future as being a great period for Lego:)
