Looking forward to putting that back up this year. :)
Will be interesting to see if it restocks...
Having said that I did not realize Haunted House did not have 1x8 in sand green. GG should stay flat thru the next year.
On floor 3, the 1x8s frequently overlap at the midpoint along the back wall, so the 2x 1x4 solution would result in panel walls - not desirable. However, the same wall also contains a 1x3 on each row, so adjusting the position of those in combination with the 1x4s coudl result in overlap at each row of building. You may want/need to use some 1x6s instead as well.
Bottom line - you can build the GG without any 1x8 sand green bricks, and still have overlap on each layer.
LotR has 1x1 (8) and 1x3 (4) sand green in the Uruk Hai army set, and 1x1 (53) and 1x4 (10) in Helm's Deep. HH will have 1x1, 1x2, 1x4 and 1x6. don't see any 1x3s in the pictures, but there could be a few. I say definitely no 1x8s by the look of it.
So the lowest price on this set on BL is around $100 US dollars. So would I be asking too much if I were to trade a sealed, MINT condition #3300003 for lets say a Shuttle Expedition/ VW Camper Van?
Whatever the case, Dynamic Duo has to be the early favorite to be the aftermarket kingpin of the group from the 1st wave.
Boy, @sidersdd, you are quick on the trigger. :)
I'd expect LEGO to sell these items directly (in store and online) at least through the holiday season, and probably into summer 2013
Just my thought on the matter...
I currently am in the same dilemma, I have 2 sets and one is listed on my bricklink store but for a price that is above what I'm sure anybody will pay while I decide to actually try to sell or wait.
Any other thoughts?
But that is what i'm afraid of. What if the set goes up to $200? I could get another SE for that. But it could sink down to $50 if they plan to release this set for another year. So it is a big gamble.
BTW each store has exactly 300 sets so if they stop this year there will only be 3000 total.
I was answering your question of "I currently am in the same dilemma, I have 2 sets and one is listed on my bricklink store but for a price that is above what I'm sure anybody will pay while I decide to actually try to sell or wait.".
So what I'm saying is, this set could eventually go up in price to $200. And for two hundred bucks, I can get another Shuttle Expedition (see trade posts above). Being said that, the set could also drop to $50. So it is a huge gamble on whether or not you want to sell it now or keep it for a later date.
Got it? :D Let me know if you don't. lol.
Lego's press release says this: notice that nowhere does it say those 10 locations are the only time this set will be given out, it just says that they are the ones this year.
why go to the expense to design, test, retool, new packagin, etc for a different version for a very limited run in 2013 when you already have this one ready to go?
It will always be a limited quantity item, so it's not like the price is going to tank. But personally, I would take the $100.
(Not that that amount is going to make any kind of difference in price speculation)
would need 11 different hair colors of course
And, I am going to print out a little sticker of my generic Mr. Yuck avatar there and stick it on my jacket. Say hi!
1) Are you thinking they will disappear soon? I think they will be gone end of this year.
2) How will these sets do in the aftermarket? I think they look nice and will do nice.
So while eventually it will probably go up in price once discontinued, Im guessing the Maersk Train will take a bit as Im sure people are stocking up on them.. it is not often a Maersk Minifig is out...
As for the Shuttle, jury is out.. Just not sure... It is as detailed a set of a Space Shuttle just shy of the one that was on the poster in the 80's
