It feels like it's only been around for about six months... Is the global stock just taking a thrashing due to Christmas, perhaps? Or is it truly disappearing altogether (so soon!)?
Sounds like a contender for boxing day sales then.
At discount to part out - yes good deal. I wouldn't touch the GT for anything less than 35% off.
It's sold out on [email protected] (European store) but I managed to snag it on Amazon.fr for around €10 cheaper. I checked Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.it first and they only have them from third-party sellers above RRP.
With all the fuzz about this set, everyone and their brother (and their son) probably has already stored a couple, if not more.
I think that, on this set, the gain will be mainly determined on how good a discount you got on it, and not by the price it sells, at least for a few years.
That said... thanks, I just picked up one, I though they were OOS everywhere :)
The price on parts heading into to 2013 is what, 13 cents per piece, on average, right? LFT noted that awhile back as prices started to creep.
So if MMV were released today, it would be priced at $203.45 - with inflation. Enough said.
i've been sitting on this for a few years, but now that i'm getting rid of my storage unit, i'm toying with putting it out on bricklink. coupled with the new one coming out next year, anyone care to guess if the that the market on the original asylum will tank?
Crown knights have been off the market for how long? This set will do very well due to the parts value not generally as a whole set.
This was the set that brought me and many others out of the 'dark ages'
Honestly, if you're thinking of getting the new one, hold off on selling the old. Assemble them both and do a photo comparison of features and details. Pros and cons of each. Then sell the one you like the least. I know you won't get as much money out of either one, but you'll be more satisfied with the one in your possession. And you'll be providing a nice service for those who have never seen the sets side by side.
Or if you're like me, get them both and then just add the old set onto the new one.
Perhaps my source was wrong?
"Captain shes going to de-cloak"
The market does seem to have changed a lot in the past six years... admittedly I wasn't even aware of LUGs or AFOLs or anything like that back then, but there didn't seem to be this trend for buying up multiple sets (whether on discount or not) with a view to making a few quid and I definitely don't remember seeing very many Baman sets on eBay back then.
Back on topic... when I checked up on the price of these a couple of years ago, I seem to remember them going for upwards of £500, but now it seems to be about half that. It's still a nice set though and - still to this day - the only place to get Nightwing!!
Clerks 2 reference in case anyone was wondering.
The question will be what price it will settle at directly after Christmas. I would assume it will stay relatively high for at least a few weeks, people spending Christmas money etc. I will be happy if I can sell them for $150.
And also, the almost invisible #10231 is Sold Out in Lego stores in Europe, and our of amazon Europe. If you want to get a copy of those, you should now, as it is already going to the hundreds on Bricklink, but eBay is much lower.
