Model Team -- Underrated Theme?
By now, I've sold off about 85% of my collection*, and as my list of remaining sets dwindles, I'm surprised that I have so many Model Team sets left. I started off with a complete theme and have only sold off four or five of them. I know that they are not particularly cheap, but the relative lack of interest really surprises me -- I figured that folks who were into LEGO vehicles or trucks would snap these up.
I thought that the Model Team sets were fantastic (I definitely felt a pang of sadness when I did end up selling 5571 Giant Truck), and I'm curious why they are not more popular. There is some technic involved for most of these sets -- is that a strike against the theme? Too much technic for those who do not like technic and not enough technic for those who do like technic? Too many studs showing on the models? Too expensive? Too hard to find in decent shape with decent stickers?
Dunno, just curious to see what others think. I rank Model Team as one of the most underrated themes out there, but maybe I just over-estimated the number of people who would be interested in LEGO vehicles (that could explain why I still have so many creator vehicles left in my collection).http://brickset.com/sets?query=model team
