DONG Lego Oil Rig promotion

MBKornMBKorn DenmarkMember Posts: 1
Hello. Found this set during cleanup today. Is there a bid on what it might be worth and where I should sell?

    I've never seen this particular promotional set before... @Istokg might know more about it.

    Can you remember where it originally came from?

    The parts (with the exception of printed pieces) look like they are mostly still available pieces. However, a few actually are retired like the wing/wedge shaped bits.
    It does look sealed, which is great. Rarer LEGO is selling for stupid money, so you should be able sell it pretty easily and for good money too - as to what that might be, it's a stab in the dark.

    The parts don't look like they're worth much more than £25 to me but it's an extremely rare set and in a box so I'd guess you might easily get upwards of £65. I'm being cautious because it's niche and looks to be just a few hundred pieces, I also don't want to get your hopes up. I wouldn't be surprised if someone was willing to part with a small fortune for it.

    Try the marketplace here and see what people offer you, if it's not what you were thinking, bung it on ebay as an auction, set a reserve see how it goes. If you sell on facebook, most groups insist you set a price. Any extra background info will help, some more photos would be good too.

    I might be wrong on this. Good luck, it was interesting to see it :-)

    I'm more surprised I had to scroll as far as post 3 for a dong related pun

    This is really too much.  Dong and Pooh in one month is excessive.

    I mainly want someone to buy it and scan the instructions 😂 Id pay £100 and scan them for everyone but I rather think the OP will want more

    At some point in the early 2000s LEGOLAND Denmark had a DONG oil rig model in their Billund park.  This has long since disappeared, and likely never been replaced, since the DONG company sold off their oil and gas energy business interests, and renamed the company.

    This is an older LEGOLAND Billund post card showing the quite intricate DONG oil rig.

    The company that bought the gas and oil part of DONG (before they were renamed to Ørsted A/S) was another Danish company called RAMBOLL.  Interestingly enough TLG made another unnumbered oil rig set in 2008 for RAMBOLL, but this time they did use the LEGO logo on the box.




    Interesting set, but as for the 2 oil rigs, I prefer the DONG oil rig model better.  ;-)
