People have mentioned that 'price per piece' is not as useful as 'price per kg' when assessing whether a lego set represents value for money. Apparently TLG use the weight when pricing architecture (and possibly other) sets.

Weight would seem to be a very useful measure to be added to the database. Partly for assessing value, but also because, for those of us who sell, it would allow us to estimate postage costs.

Also, I wondered if anyone has any exmaple weights. I've got out the digital kitchen scales to weigh some of the sets I have around the place and realised I need some new kitchen scales!

9354,11290On top of this I did a multivariate analysis (probably only a term used by stats geeks, for others just think 'complicated mathematical model') a couple years ago on what factors influenced the price of Star Wars sets. I put the number of minifigs, number of pieces, weight, and other less obvious factors into the model and the only significant factor in determining the price was the weight of the set. I later did this for some non-licensed sets and got the same results. I didn't however put licensed and non-licensed sets into the same model as we all know that licensed sets cost more.
