What sets do you now regret selling?
I have bought and sold over the last four years to help offset my collection costs.
I was thinking today about the sets I once owned and have since sold.
Here's my list of regrets that I sold.
6243 Brick Beards Bounty. This is by far the best Pirate ship IMHO to this day. I only had one copy and was really poor at the time of my newly discovered hobby. Sold for 10$ more than I payed and was not retired at the time.
10210 Imperial Flagship. This was a good build but lacked a lot of details for the price. Sold at the same time with Brick Bounty. Sold for 20$ more than I paid and was not retired at the time. Massive size was a great display.
10194 Emerald Night. Bought three copies on sale. Sold two for 250$ a year after retirement. Still have one copy but one passenger car is so plain! Wish I had those other cars and just sold the loco's.
10219 Maesrk Train. Bought two copies on sale. Built one keep other sealed. Sold used for 200$ and Sealed for 220$ Bought one copy back for 240$ Sealed a year after selling the two originals. This is such a great looking train. Wish I had just keep the two originals. Silly me thinking MMV was going to be the winner.
The positive for the sales is that they helped buy many others sets that are now retired. They are all in my MOC collection and many at discounted prices. So I was able to stretch my money very far.
Also I regret missing out on the purchase of a 10224 Town Hall. I really drop the ball in October with double points. I missed when Target and Walmart had the online Lego discount battle. I just could never pull the trigger at full price for this set. Now I will probably sell my other three modular buildings FB (Built), GE (Sealed), PS (Sealed)
