    In Depth LEGO Investing: 9465 The Zombies

    The 9465 The Zombies is a medium sized set comes from the Monster Fighters theme. The set has 447 pieces. The set has a retail price of $39.99 USD. This means the Price Per Piece (PPP) ratio for the set is nine cents ($0.09 USD) per piece. There is another ratio that I use and it is called the Price Per Gram (PPG) ratio. This set has a weight of 0.725 kilograms, or 725 grams. This means the PPG ratio is about six cents ($0.0551 USD) per gram.

    The set has four minifigures. They are Jack McHammer, a Zombie Bride, a Zombie Groom, and a Zombie Driver. In this set, the Zombie Bride and Groom are exclusive to this set, making the set more valuable.

    According to brickset.com, the set was released on July 23, 2012 and was retired on October 23, 2012. The set was on the primary market for only three months. That is a very short period of time for a Lego set on the primary market. This is one of the factors on why the set is valued so much and has such a high value.

    Currently, the set has a Compounded Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 188.40%. That is an astonishing CAGR for a set after one year. The CAGR for the Monster Fighters theme is 40.91%. This set has a CAGR that is 147.49% above its own themes CAGR. The average CAGR for all the themes is 11.36%. This set has a CAGR that is 177.04% above the average CAGR. The comparisons of all the CAGR are amazing. The set is way above many other CAGR too. Now, let's look at a chart showing the monthly sold listings for the set new.

    • June 2012: 1
    • July 2012: 3
    • August 2012: 29
    • September 2012: 26
    • October 2012: 31
    • November 2012: 56

    • February 2013: 43
    • March 2013: 56

    • May 2013: 49

    According to the chart, there were 533 new sets sold in the past year on eBay, which is about forty-four (44) per month. Even though the set was only available on the primary market for about three months, there still were a lot of sets selling on eBay for a higher price, which makes the value of the set go up. Here is another chart showing the monthly sales trend for the set.

    • June 2012: $70.00 USD
    • July 2012: $53.33 USD
    • August 2012: $55.90 USD
    • September 2012: $55.04 USD
    • October 2012: $57.23 USD
    • November 2012: $57.95 USD
    • December 2012: $66.65 USD
    • January 2013: $93.08 USD
    • February 2013: $103.74 USD
    • March 2013: $114.59 USD
    • April 2013: $112.17 USD
    • May 2013: $115.33 USD

    According to the chart, the set has stayed above the retail price for the whole year. Usually a set has a value above the retail price before the set is released. For this set, it was June 2012 when the set has a value of $70.00 USD. Then the set lost $16.67 USD in value. The set stayed in the fifty dollar price range until December 2012. In December 2012, the set jumped in price to $66.65 USD. After that, another significant jump happened. The set went to $93.08 USD in value. It only took about three months for this set to double its retail price. Now, the set continues to grow, but at a slower pace. Soon, the set will have a value three times its retail price.

    Currently, the set has a value of $115.33 USD. Since the set has a retail price of $39.99 USD, the Return On Investment (ROI) would be 188%. The set has increased $75.34 USD from its retail price.

    I would recommend to buy this set. The set has a CAGR of 188.40% and an ROI of 188%. Also the set is on an upward trend in value. Overall, I think that this set has many great investing factors.
