How would you feel about re-releases?
This is something that I've been thinking about recently. How would you feel about Lego re-releasing Cafe Corner, Green Grocer, Market Street etc at their original price (or very similar to the current modulars)?
On the plus side, if the modulars were re-released, I imagine there would be a high demand for them from all of the people who were in their dark ages and/or didn't realise how fantastic the modular sets would turn out.
The downside would be that the people who overpaid for them would be disappointed, the collectors who bought as an investment would be disappointed and there's a possibility that people wouldn't buy multiple expensive sets in the future. I would say that it's highly likely that far more Fire Brigades and Grand Emporiums have sold because people are buying 5 sets at a time so that they can make a profit when the production cycle halts (although I imagine that so many people have done this, there won't be as much profit to be made out of it - certainly not in a comparable amount of time).
I got thinking about it, because I saw a set on Amazon at nearly £1,500 and it made me sad that Lego don't see any of that money.
So, would you be in favour of a re-release? Or are you sitting on 20 Green Grocers and would be devastated if such news was announced?
