There has been a lot of discussion regarding this exact topic already. I would use the search bar to find related discussion or consult this thread:
If you use the search feature though, it works well to narrow things down. What @Pitfall69 is pretty much about it... and what you'll find in other threads (with a large amount of off-topic comments mixed in).
Two hundred dollars is a screaming deal.
I'm also wondering how long Assembly Square's lifetime will be. $280 is serious cash for a lot of people, even with a great price-per-part ratio. It seems most people that have come in the store that have wanted one have one at this point, and they're not selling as fast as the other modulars. We usually have a half dozen at any given point. Even with the 10th Anniversary badging, I'm curious what its lifespan will be. Looking forward to building mine.
- all thr medium nougat bricks particularly the 50 off 1x8's.
- the clock face has only appeared in 2 sets.
- thr black female hairpiece is rare.
- the black roof steeple piece (don't know the official name but at the very top) is only in a few sets.
- the black garage door section pieces are only in a few sets.
- the globe in the office.
There are definitely a few more rare/ expensive pieces but these are the ones that come to mind...
I do agree $199 is a bit much, but so is $170 for the newer smaller models. Yes, they are detailed, but swallowing 199 a few years ago was iffy. Swallowing 170 for these newer models is even harder.
I've already built 3 of them, a train station, a corner hotel and a consulate building (which I later build into a GBHQ).
FACT - Town Hall is predominantly Dark Orange in colour.
FILTHY ROTTEN LIE (that I'll fight any bastard who says so) - Magni sometimes drinks FAR too much Gentlemans before lunchtime.
So I have negotiated a deal with a seller for the 10224 Town Hall with all pieces, minifigures and original instructions (pictures show original instructions and built model which matches the official pictures on brickset) for $200 while I was visiting New Jersey. Due to the limited time, I was unable to pick up the set and complete the transaction. He is located in NJ, south of Staten Island, NY. It seems like a great deal and I am reaching out here to see if I can get it completed somehow. Here are the two scenarios I am thinking of with someone who lives close to the area:
1. A fellow bricksetter completes the transaction, checks and acquires the set. At a later date I acquire the set from him/her at a 15% premium ($230) for his/her efforts.
2. If you do not have this set and wanted it for yourself (rather than resell) than you are in the same position as me. I can send you the info and you can have it. In return, if you would like (optional) you can send me $30 (15%) worth of Lego as finder’s fee. If you can’t that is fine too.
Lego is a hobby for me and I am not a collector/completionist or a reseller, so I am limited in what I can pay for the sets even when they are retired and have high market value. This seems like an opportunity to get a set I like at a price affordable to me, however I understand the complication and hence seeking if it is at all possible to get this set or benefit from this opportunity.
This is like any other private party sale hence it can evaporate at any minute if the seller changes their mind and needs precautions to have a safe transaction. Let me know if anyone is interested in this. Thanks.
