Lego Architecture Sets Good Investments?
Does anyone think sets in the Architecture line are worthwhile investments? I started wondering this as I noticed that 21005 Fallingwater is well over 2 years old, so it's probably headed out the door before long.
Fallingwater is noted relatively few times in Brickset collection lists (roughly 700 each of Own and Want), compared to 10193 MMV (3400+ Own, 1700+ Want) - although both are at $100 RRP, and both have been out awhile. So that makes me think there's not much interest in Fallingwater.
On the other hand, if the Architecture line continues for a few years, I can see potential interest in the early sets (similar to what happened with the modular buildings). In that case, having some extras of 21005 could be somewhat lucrative.
I think 21010 Robie House is overpriced for its overall size (despite 2,000+ pieces), so it's less likely to be worth the investment. Fallingwater could be, though. I recently built it, and was quite impressed. Minimal play value, of course, but it's a clever build, and looks quite nice when it's done.
