Harry Potter is probably where that has happened most recently... And fire Brigade.. Only bought 2 FB's though so keeping them much longer..
Plenty more SSD stock on the way to the USA. Just remember once you get to a high price point it becomes very difficult to move volume if you are a reseller. The sweet spot is where the $$$$ are in this game.
This and the #10197 FB are the only sets I've watched go EOL lately. Is the quick spike common? Does the price generally drop back down after a quick bubble? Or is $600 CDN the new floor price?
I would not consider FB as the new norm for anything.
I think when GE goes that is when you will see real numbers as to what effect a Mod being out for 5 years is.
There's always a quick spike when a set goes EOL. Unfortunately, people looking for a quick buck sell too early after the spike and that's when prices start to level out.
Yowsers. That is one set I would not have fathomed would go up so much. I bought that at 50% and still have it in sealed in box.
My opinion is that Minecraft profit taking is done. Unless stocks happen to run out again around Christmas and drive the prices up, but I do not see that re-occurring. I think LEGO learned from that mistake. Plus I do ont see these ending production anytime soon esepcially if LEGO has an agreement to make minfig scale sets for Minecraft. Yeah, noticed this is the case at most stores online as well, though Walmart still appears to have the yellow cargo trains in stock for $174.99 USD
Yes I as well. "It is a fire station" I kept preaching. I have already sold a bunch of them for double what I paid. I will be unloading all but a dozen of them this Christmas. The FB was a no risk investment for me.
I also like the GE (not as much as FB), it is a safe bet for sure.
Also, with tax (assume 8%) a 10188 would cost around $432.00 so I would hardly think $18.00 is "a total rip-off". Service does count for something.
And I did inform the person of the fact that they MAY be able to get it cheaper if they wait a while.
Bottom line is that you should not be so quick to judge and label.
