Funk and Wagnalls..
I doubt people buying Duplo are going to repeatedly enter the contest.
For the record I bought #76022 Black Manta Deep Sea Strike on day one. I also sent in emails everyday only missed 2 or 3 times.
So yes I bought a stupid Aquaman set to get a cool Batman set.
That said, like all exclusive Lego sets, I would expect the value of a sealed Batpod to accumulate over time. It could potentially surpass the prices for Mr. Gold some time ten or more years from now, but I don't expect the initial demand alone to push it to that limit.
So are all the parts in other sets then? What are the hard to find ones? Thanks for the help.
I partially agree with you, as the set prices "should" go down as sellers want to make that quick easy buck and that will be our best chance to buy one cheap, but, this will probably stay around the grand mark after a few months to a year. IMHO at least :)
The wide tires should still be available. Two with rims run about $25.00.
Is is there any easy way to part out the set into bricklink?
I notified Customer Service about the piece still showing in Bricks & Pieces. I also mentioned that LEGO will most likely receive more orders for the piece from VIP members who did not win a Bat-Pod.
Because you have people that want bragging rights to say they could afford such an outrageous price, then there are die hard collectors that must have this set complete with box and instruction book.
BL has an Inventory list, so yeah, should be. Plus I believe there are applications that can scan BL for the parts you need at the cheapest cost, if I recall correctly.
As for the parts being unavailable at LEGO at this time. Call CS and ask when they will be back in stock as they usually have that info if they can be bought, but just are temp out of stock.
It is possible some guy on BL bought as many as he could to sell to folks wanting to BL a Bat-pod. It is also possible they did not have many in stock to purchase as they are rather large and pricey, but the demand should make LEGO make more, well as long as the Tumbler (or any other set using those parts) is still in production.
Wouldn't surprise me if someone actually bought it.
I hate listings like that. You can't use the "only 750 were created" label when listing a bricklinked version.
