I picked up a few hogwarts (4842) and a diagon alley a few days ago. The manager said he was surprised he had both left and he expected them to go really fast now. Anyone that wants to get hogwarts I would recommend buying both Hogwarts castle because they go so well together.
Then again if they only go for retail and you are one of the people who cleared out a Walmart for sale prices, then you may be ok.. I doubt they go for anything over retail though.
Now that I've heard they will do SW again for next year, I'm selling mine now because I doubt they will go much above retail...
So I say sell em and move on... Not every "investment" is going to be a winner, nature of the beast... there is a reason they are 50% off everywhere, Lego made too many of them...
We really like the Lego Advent Calendars in our house. I just picked up a 2009 Pirates Advent Calendar (6299) on eBay this week. There are/were a lot of Pirates fans over here, so I still don't know why those were never sold in North America.
Usually Sold out means gone (for the most part), While stuff can come back from 'Sold out' status, most of the time Sold out is EOL, whereas Out of stock means more are coming.
Not that I know anything, but it seems like they are not rushing HP out the door, my local stores are both fully stocked with all of the recent sets...
All kingdoms will be gone besides joust by the summer. This is the time to get kingdom sets since they are on crazy sale everywhere
HP just came out last year I remember, but my understanding with this is still on amateur level. Usually I have seen sets retiring in 2 years, like Fantasy Era, City Coast Guard, earlier HP sets, and the likes.
IMO they're probably running it down already, so its probably just a case of how long the warehouse takes to empty.
MVR - USD 70
GE - USD 190
FB - USD 180
DS - USD 450
Maersk Train - USD 130
Got 4410 Forest Police Station for 85 USD, two Batcaves for 95 USD each, another BP for 100 USD.
But getting back to the topic, I feel we will be seeing lots of price drops on 2010-2011 sets this year.
I would probably say early 2013, having said that something has to give sooner in the summer in terms of shelfspace, so who knows, could be a tad earlier given there is a lot coming...
Hoth Echo base is an interesting one. I can see some of the minifigs in this commanding a high price once gone, but the original rrp is far too high in my opinion, and the actual rest of the set is a real mixed bag.
They could be a sleeper...
I agree with Diagon Alley as well, the pieces from this set are better than any other Harry Potter and good minifigures. I have to say the two Hogwarts sets are nearly as great buys, as they have lots of awesome figures that are going to be of great interest to HP collectors.
not on shop at home anymore in Europe....
What about the Slave I? Has that been discontinued?
Maybe I'll ask tomorrow at the monthly build to see what the store thinks.
I have to say keeping the recent sets a secret can be tortuous sometimes. In the last few days my son has asked a couple of times if "Hagrid's Hut has gone on sale yet?" (I'm training him well). Little does he know. :)
