#9465 The Zombies set comes to mind as a top performer. I'm sure there were people that got their hands on more of these than #41999 and was able to make some good money.
If TRU puts these down to 99 then I'm guessing they will be finally gone, but I do not see this occurring any time soon.
Just like last year TRU is the lone retailer for some LEGO sets long out of stock at other stores due to their outrageous prices.
Now that I think about it maybe TRU is not gouging... maybe they are just getting a huge head start on aftermarket pricing their LEGO before it EOLs.
When this first came out it was on sale for some time at $99, currently sold out on [email protected] with a clearance price of $75, but I think it sold out while at 30% off though.
Maybe if you sell in volume, the Heliplane might be worth it; otherwise, you can probably do less work and make more with the Cargo Terminal (ie selling one Cargo Terminal might net the same amount of money as selling two Heliplanes).
I'm guessing these wont retire until at least Xmas 2014 or so, but I could be wrong.
BTW, it was just a coincidence that you were the seller in my example. I searched the marketplace to see if anyone had sold it 2 years into retirement.
Regarding #60021, I was standing in front of a dozen or so at Walmart yesterday for the $25 mentioned. I didn't buy any. As a set it just strikes me as too niche to do well enough to be worth investing in heavily. I personally wasn't interested in it as part fodder, either, and that is saying a lot.
I wonder if those wizards that know how to link sets would say their secret.
Where does that take you? All I did was type pound-six-zero-seven-four.
Have you seen the new LEGO City Train Station? I think this will stunt #7937 's growth in the aftermarket. I actually like the new one better.
For parts though I see these being great.
I would say if I was forced to pick 'good' sets i would say Sea Cow will definitely be one, plus any set where there can be a 'regular' vehicle built out of the set, but that is all just my opinion
I'm still pondering the Cargo Terminal at $69.99, also at Walmart.
That being said, I wouldn't turn down a few of the Tilt Rotors for $25, that is a good price and it will do $50 comfortably once it retires. Or so I think. :)
As for Cargo Terminal, for $70, I'd love to have a large pile of them, closer to EOL. The primary problem with that set is it may well be one of those that just sticks around and around and around.
I see at least 2 years from launch to EOL, maybe a bit longer. The last big Airport set was around for awhile, but it has done well anyway.
I'm really frustrated now because this new set just seems so much more badass. I'll wait one more day and let Walmart decide my fate and my weight. ;o)
I will admit, however, that a larger, not-quite-modular size train station would be welcome, one with multiple tracks and more to do than just buy a ticket, pizza or pop. While I'm wishing, give me a roundhouse, remote switches and wider radius curves also.
- How unbelievably outstanding #4554 was back then.
- How mediocre the later stations have been. I think they ranged from poor ( #4556 and #4513 ) to quite good ( #7997 ) but nothing really spectacular.
#4554 is a great station nonetheless.
