I am not a reseller anyway. I collect what I like, not what may be the next UCS MF in terms of resale value. If I happen to have it in my collection because I like it as a set 'more power to me' if not, no biggie!
I vaguely remember someone mentioning #10188 as retiring soon at some point, not sure if that's happened yet. Also, I think that all modular buildings are worth at least 5x retail (including the 2017 sausage factory). And MS is worth 5x less as it's not a modular. Finally a re-release of #10179 is going to hurt the value of religious business cards.
Urk. For some reason, I was reading the quality issues/broken parts thread for the first time last week and I hadn't looked at the dates (I did think it was a long thread for only a few days worth of posts though). So what for you was a post back in January (http://bricksetforum.com/discussion/comment/407865/#Comment_407865) was for me a post from last week (took me ages to find that just now - search is actually useless). And so I thought my comment was far more relevant and timely than it actually was. And now the mantle of Synopsiser* has been bequeathed to you! :-)

It seems that everything I do is a fiasco.
At least no-one has created an image or gif with a meme on it!
A more fun game is to clickbait him to #latest:
Hey look at this @MaffyD : Really exciting stuff you really shouldn't click...
(I know, I should get adblock, but hey I'm not bothered enough most of the time, or I just close the site)
Plus, I have a very particular set of skills. (Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you)
Edit: I actually felt a little mean for a second, then I realised you had 1,000 unread posts on a random internet forum - not exactly wiping away one of man's greatest achievments.
^ Well, if someone wants to pay me...
I also have a particular set of skills: Skills that your nightmares can only cower in fear of: http://www.trueurl.net/?q=http://tinyurl.com/z3np5xp&lucky=on&Uncloak=Find+True+URL
Also, I don't think you're mean either - I don't really consider this a milestone. :-)
Not really a milestone, but there's a numerical elegance to 60000 bricks. And bang on the 10 cents per piece average (to 3 significant figures anyway).
[Usual caveats about piece counts and prices not being complete here]
