"There is still good in him..."
Not only did he post 7500 times, a lot of his posts are many paragraphs ;)
I would rather have LFT versus a troll any day.
To be fair, sometimes it is really hard to get your point across in text form.
It has been on sale forever, yet it isn't selling at a huge rate, it has remained in stock while all the other sets have sold out.
If that set breaks $100 any time soon I'd be shocked.
I have a dozen or so of them, but that is just in case I'm wrong. :) (I have a dozen or so of just about everything, for the same reason)
No EN of course, but then what is? :)
The Stage Coach is nice, but will anyone care in a year or two? Maybe... Kingdoms had a Stage Coach and it didn't do much. (#7199) I have found a few #7199 sets in the random B&N stores from time to time (for original price of course, $39.99) Nice set, but overpriced by $10 which is perhaps why it has gone nowhere. TLR version was $10 less at RRP and widely on sale for $25, so if you bought for $20-25, you'll do fine. Less so at RRP I think.
The other set that I see doing well, if you bought it on discount, is Colby City Showdown (#79109). Remove the figs and you have a great western town, the bank and sheriff's office is the perfect image for that. If you remember the Western Cuusoo set that didn't pass muster (shame, it was nice), this is like a scaled down version. If you picked this up for $40-45 or so, it should reach $80 by this coming Christmas and sell in decent enough volume. Nice mixture of colors, good part count.
The funny thing is, the part count and physical size/weight of #79110 is higher than #79109, so it should do better, right? Yea, maybe... But the parts in #79110 are not as easy to use for MOCs, or kids for that matter, lots of vertical slopes, not much in terms of a building, and it more or less is a mine. The fact that it is bigger, heavier, more parts than #79109 and it still isn't sold out should be a huge warning flag. It is to me anyway.
Side note, the sleeper hit might be #79107, how many Indian Teepees has LEGO done? If you want such a thing, that might be quite rare. The canoe is nice as well, not a bad set. That one might well double in RRP before anything else does (short of the obvious #79106 army builder)
Ninjago did amazingly well Christmas 2012, but it didn't do much this past year, I still have too many sets left where I was waiting for prices to climb back up, and they just didn't. A lot of inventory showed up during Christmas that clearly was being held back, #2507 I'm looking at you.
Time will tell if this has any staying power, but frankly the year off really hurt, kids moved on to other things (and Chima doesn't seem to be one of them).
My own kids aren't Ninjago crazy like they were a year ago, they recently rewatched the show (we have digital copies) and while they seem to enjoy it, that was it.
My 8 year old told me a few days ago, "Dad, we can take apart the Ninjago sets now, other than the dragons, I'm done with them".
That, more than anything else, tells me something. Check back with me in a year and I'll tell you what that something is. :)
Thing is nearly every castle line has had a coach of some sort...honestly they are a bit done to death and I love castle.
TLR one was well done, had great figs, new horses and a good build and feel to the set as whole. I think it will do decently.
Colby City was available for about 25$ each from Target if you PM'ed Amazon and and used the Target 5$ toy coupon +Red card. I expect the ones I picked up to do nicely or be nice cheap fun MOC sets ALA the recent Hobbit Barrel escape bonanza.
I thought it was the stinker of the bunch. They were routinely clearanced out for 30 to 35 in my area several months ago.
The Constitution train chase however all cars are LEGO rail compatible, same with the TS train. And the Constitution train chase set comes with track as well.
Or you can try Ebay and there are a few for 110 shipped and depend on your locale, tax may also come into play as most of time the seller does not charge tax there.
Based on the history, he sold one for 100 just a few days ago and received positive feedback from buyer so offer that price should be fine.
I only have a few JP as I decided to go with #9526 instead.
JP @ £60 or PA @ £35. Which will turn out to be the best investment?
Except for #41999?
Ah yes but #41999 was a different situation all together
I simply love the Weathertop set, great build and fantastic minifigs. 2xRing Wraiths and black horses. :-)
