Set 1031

Hi, I was telling one of my friends about the set I sold on here which I found when clearing out my grans things, and she said she had some lego somewhere, anyway she has found it and wondered if any of you guys knew what it was worth, and if any of you would be interested in buying it.

It's set number 1031 and its a technics set, by the looks of things it's complete with motors and what looks to be a battery box and in the box, the instructions are with it too. The box is a bit shabby in the corners where it's been used but other than that its good.

Anyways let me know what you think.

thanks!

    Hmm; according to bricklink, the set with that number (1031) only included 20 "building cards" (and no pieces). Does the box look like this?: http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?O=1031-1

    It looks like 1034 (complete with box, etc.) goes for $350-$400 USD on Bricklink, and 1031 (the cards) goes for about $20 USD.

    Remember that none have sold at that price in six months. It's like your other set, the market for this will be incredibly small.

    It's a great set for technic fans, but there is nothing that rare in there that parts collectors / users will want to pay such a premium for. It is more of a volume box.

    CCC you are full of knowledge :)

    Thanks, will let her know. Will possibly be something which goes in an auction with a reasonable starting price, allowing someone to get a bargain and it to be sold.

    But I'll see what she thinks :)

    Thanks.

    Just kidding @CCC. I knew you were full of something, but I didn't know it was knowledge ;p.

    Seriously, I'm just kidding.

    Yes, that set and the one you found at your grams aren't really popular and it would take a special kind of collector. So, CCC is correct.

    It is one of those sets that is valuable if you can find the right person to sell it to. The problem is finding the right person. Bear in mind most lego collectors know about bricklink. If someone had wanted one at the price offered on BL, they would have bought one by now. That suggests that the prices on BL are too high.

    If you want to get top dollar for the set, there are some things you can do. Check everything is there. A guarantee of completeness is much better than saying it looks complete. Check the condition. Are any parts scratched or worn, Again a guarantee that everything is in excellent condition is better than saying it all looks OK. Take photos. People paying a premium for a set like this will want to see what they are getting. Take photos of the box. Completeness is important here, and the box is part of the set. Without it, it is just a collection of technic parts. Show people any damage on the box.

    Good luck in selling it - hopefully you will get a good price. But remember to be realistic when considering offers, as buyers for these will not come along very often. A sale at a realistic price is better than no sale at an over optimistic BL price.
