Whining thread - life is so hard and unfair
So for everybody who is tired of those threads, please just don’t read it. I was browsing thru older sets and the ones I would like to buy and of course the popular ones come to mind. I have to admit I missed the glory years of the now extremely expensive sets like the Carousel, Café Corner, Green Grocer,… Those sets have reached a price level that I just can’t afford anymore and it probably even get more expensive as time passes on. But when I look back at around 2000 how many Sets were reissued and nowadays none, makes me sad. Even to part the set together is more or less the same as if you buy a used one. Or lately I had the idea to add another wagon to my Emerald Night Train – those window pieces are so expensive that you almost pay an arm and a leg just for the windows. Or like the Sound brick from the carousel, 100 € just for a sound brick and even more expensive are the covers. Or the 1x8 Sandgreen Brick for the Green Grocer
I don’t understand why Lego just doesn’t do anything to make such sets available for those people who were in the dark ages or just haven’t had the money back then or mum & dad would not spend so much, even if you have to brick it together.
