Keep in mind they are running around 3x RRP right now, so selling a used one for 2x RRP is about 30% off.
again the old saying, beauty is in the eye of beholder and value exists only to what is perceived by the buyer...
The problem for me now is that I last collected in 1999/2000. So I have the very first run of Star Wars, but missed out on some great stuff. I don't want everything Star Wars, but there are some out there I want to find. Of course, all of this is with intent to build and (one day) have for my son and I to play with. I don't look at it as an investment or to resell. I'm strictly on the side of wanting to build and use my LEGO. That said, the UCS R2-D2 is a great example of something I'm completely on the fence about. I love R2, think it's a great looking set, and there's currently good deals to be had on it, but it has no playability to me and therefore it's probably a pass.
P.S. We are also looking at the R2 kit. Think Im going to pass now since I bought the wife the whole 2010-2011 harry potter lot for christmas.
The sale on TIE Fighters has been crazy lately. Seems every place wants to get rid of them at $35.
Question - IF I do so and don't end up building and keeping the set what does it do to the value compared to keeping it MISB?
I took a 7965 that i've long wanted but now wonder if I will keep long term. I don't collect Star Wars but having a Falcon and eventually a Death Star would be probably be the extent of my SW collection.
I have sets in front to build, Green Grocer being one but how can you resist a beautiful crisp new LEGO box!
