This is a handy (and strangely difficult to access) tool for calculating eBay fees and seeing what the most cost effective method for selling there would be.
And as others have stated, for the layperson, PayPal fees are locked at 2.9% of the total bill.
That said, I did grab a Unimog at the last BOGO from TRU.
About a year back I sold my 8466 tires for $80 alone!
This is also a licensed Technic set, which will probably effect its aftermarket price. However, like mentioned previously, this set I believe is not very appealing to younger kids, and 8043 Excavator is appealing to all ages.
I think the large Technic sets are in general underrated, but there is a whole group of Lego consumers that are attracted to these sets and don't really care for the more traditional minifigure scaled sets like the modulars and Star Wars ships. In other words, you can hardly ever go wrong with a big Technic set.
I would try to come up with the final value fees but I find it a bit confusing.
Again BL is cheaper but may take longer to sell
I think this one is gonna do a lot better than people think
I know this set just came out, but then again it is a 'special edition' and there already is another cargo train out (though I thought the yellow one would go out of stock first) but LEGO.com usually does not discount (especially this heavily) something unless they want it gone, so this is interesting news, unless LEGO is geting in on the April Fools day and giving the buyers there a gift.
I can say that unfortunately this is not discounted on the US site.
hmm appears other countries in Europe also have the train discounted on LEGO.com...
Will need to keep an eye on the US site during the day
I have a feeling this MF will do extremely well in the aftermarket. I have yet to buy any. I guess it'll last through Xmas 2013. No rush here.
A) But Lego will likely not produce one for awhile
B) It's better built (from what I've heard) than previous editions
C) Centerpiece set of the entire theme
I think the MF will be EOL'd around the same time (just my opinion).
I also believe the yellow cargo train will go before the red one does, just based on their release date.
FB and ME are the other big sets they have not restocked... GE, PS, TB have all been restocked, but those three have not.
Of course, if we see 25% off DS on May 4th (doubt it, but you never know), will it last very long? :)
^^ I showed my wife who is pretty unknowledgeable about the Lego Modular building phenomena both the Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium boxes side by side. She liked GE a lot more. I then showed her the back side of FB's box and she immediately inquired about Green Grocer saying it was the "cutest".
FB is probably not going to appeal to women as much, just given the material, but it will do well in retirement... Even more when Lego finally comes out with a modular police station.
Almost looked like a reseal because the tape was a little loose.
