In what sense?
Again, based on your $50 budget, my numero uno pick is...
#21301 - only $45, I think Birds will do very well. A beautiful set, in a great box, that will appeal to several different groups. Not sure if LEGO has ever done birds. I'm not a LEGO expert. If it is the first bird set, that is another plus. Also, I think it will be collectible based on other bird sets coming out later. If so, it is always the 1st set that does the best.
Other sets to consider, a bit higher in price...
#31026 - is a bit more than $50, but on clearance at Kroger Super Stores.
#10245 - is a bit more too, but will sell well later
#41055 - again, a bit more, but will do well after retirement
#6156 - if you can find it
My bet is on:
#60083 Snowplow Truck
#60075 Excavator and Truck
I believe the Snowplow is a first by Lego and it is perfect for any city layout. At $19.99 and/or on sale, I can buy (3) for about $50 and I think I can triple my money in a year.
The Excavator is a nice set and as mentioned before, people love construction sets. Not only kids, but AFOLs that add these things to their layouts.
My wildcard is #76040 Braniac Attack. Is is an exclusive and it has been constantly out of stock since it came out. This is the first appearance of Supergirl and Braniac and I don't think we will see these minifigures again anytime soon.
Now, if you stocked up on the #7936 on sale before the went EOL you are doing well (heck even if you did not buy on sale).
As far as #7991 , I guess I was just glancing at current prices and not sold listings. A rookie mistake made by a veteran. I am ashamed :( In my defense, I had to deal with a screaming child all night.
Finally, can anyone tell me why #9444 Cole's Tread Assault is such a winner on the aftermarket? This was a $40 item that now costs about $100. Vehicle design? Minifigures? What gives?
I wonder what happens if they don't sell out by the end of February and they have published that as an end date (unlike most other sets). Is there an equivalent of book pulping? Or just an extreme sale to get rid of the remaining stock?
Didn't even notice the Braniac Attack until you mentioned it. Yup, the minifigs will make that set a winner. Thanks for pointing that set out.
Too many LEGO sets, too little time!
I don´t know if it´s been said here before (this thread has so many comments), but Ewok Village will retire this year, they said at lego. Not a surprise really.
Ewok Village, if it is a two year life cycle, then it is due to go autumn 2015. But it could easily hang around 2.5 years into 2016. Or longer. Who was it at lego told you it was going? Not saying is vague.
Names.... Bad... No Names!
Ugh (caveman grunt)

"Names, and titles, and locations! Oh my!"
And what comes to DS I could swear someone even said that the catologue in some country said about it. "available as long as the supplies last
"Will retire this year" - so sometime in next 10 months.....
"They said it at Lego" - who is they and where at lego ? Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen to you at the last Lego board meeting you attended ? Or the cashier at your local Lego store?
Not asking you to name your source, but such bold predictions would garner more credibility if they were backed up with your level of confidence / track record.
Yep binaryeye but I never said it can't be false information.
