I placed an order for the IS from Target and the MMV from Lego. My IS arrived and I'm hoping I receive the MMV...ya know...the set that will never die
So now that we can forget the fact that the Shazam figure will be released in the upcoming DVD release, what do you all think is going to be the future value of these? I have my own opinions, but also love to hear others.
Question regarding purchasing LEGO on international Amazon sites - are the product packaging/instructions universal for LEGO in that I will get the exact same item if I order from Amazon Germany as I order from US Amazon? Or, are there variations in the packaging and instructions to suit the local language?
The pictures on the listings appear to be identical to the US listings. I'm hoping to pick some things up at a slightly cheaper price but wouldn't want it if the packaging is foreign!
In addition to the info in that thread, I noticed that the shapes of some of the boxes are different. For instance, I bought a couple 7939 yellow cargo trains from Amazon.fr. The trains I received are packaged in a larger/flatter box than the 7939 sets sold in the US, which are packaged in a thicker/smaller box.
I actually prefer the European boxes to the US boxes, since they don't have all of the warnings and other writing on the front of the boxes that the US boxes have.
You're also right about dark bley and black, they need to put something in the instructions to help with that one. :)
Now I have not really opened many brand new, like just released, sets, but the EN manual I had was a pill to distinguish between dark gray and Black
I don't mean a Star wars set, i just mean a similar part count and lengthy build as the MF?
Has there been any word on what the next Sculpture set will be?
You got it! Got them yesterday. Here they are in all their glory. Thanks @BoiseState!
EDIT: Unfortunately, I can never seem to get pictures to attach... I received the Celebration Luke and Han Solo. Very fitting considering the circumstances ;-)
Either way, it's not a big deal all. We know what the figures are, no picture needs to be attached. Thanks for your help. Thanks @BoiseState for the figures, they definitely fit the criteria perfectly ;-)
I know Lego is in a class if their own, but it is still a toy. Many people collect classic toys Star Wars, Transformers, G.I. Joe. The new options are vastly superior in almost every way, but collectors will still seek the older ones for their collection...and pay 100's
Still, this being said, there will be exceptions and those sets that are retired that a "superior" will command good money.
DS and FB are two good examples of this, those will never quite get an equal for a very long time, no matter what else new Lego puts out.
Tower Bridge is another good example. They may do bigger, grander, different, but that will be the only Tower Bridge in scale that Lego is ever likely to do, at least for a few decades.
What about Taj Mahal? That is a classic that also won't ever get redone and will only go up and up in value. Some day, it will look "old" like 3450 Statue of Liberty does today, but does anyone really think TLG will redo 3450 any time soon?
I highly doubt it.
2260 and 2521 anyone? :)
Now isn't that a deal! :)
Back on topic, I noticed 21000 got a huge discount from Amazon today and is currently listed at $15.55 which us about a 20% slash from where it was (mid $19s). In my short LEGO price observation life, this has typically been the best indication that a set is about to be EOL or at least provides the best opportunity to procure a large quantity at a good price before EOL.
Thoughts? Hancock was discontinued earlier this year and was originally released around the same time as the Sears/Willis.
I think this series will do well in retirement. Not smashing well, but well... Good double over 12-18 months...
