A sad tale of how other collectibles bubbles have burst...
Now I'm not going to be judgemental and say that LEGO will follow this trend... but the exuberance that I see right now with the "Collectible" Minifigs (CMFs), and other very popular LEGO sets came to mind when I read this article about 10 collectible crazes of the past that went bust.http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/savingandinvesting/10-worthless-collectibles-and-the-reasons-they-lost-their-value/ss-BBsV6Ya?ocid=spartandhp
I'm not saying this is going to happen to LEGO... but while many of you have the CMF or other LEGO editions fever... history is a good experience to learn from... rather than to repeat it.
Now granted... this isn't so much a problem for the diehard builders out there (cheaper LEGO would be great!)... but for those expecting a continuation of future increases in value.... a reality check is in order when LEGO factories are working 3 shifts of overtime to crank out CMFs and other LEGO items by the millions.
