Dino - general discussion

Recommended Posts

You should buy the Dino sets. Just go look at the themes CAGR so far.

Agreed! I picked up 1 set before Christmas and was skeptical. The theme really is on track to do well, so anyone who can buy in, even at retail, I`d do it.

Yeah I got into investing after they were gone. Since I am huge Dinosaur guy, I seriously would have stocked up.

 

I got 3 Trex hunters at Barnes and Noble for 48$ and then have picked up a couple of the others here and there.

 

My best score was a $69 Dino Defense HQ at Walmart.

My local TRU had 8 or so T-Rex Hunters still on the shelf but at full retail, so i would check every so often to see if they ever went on clearance. Sure enough they went to %50 off finally, but someone got them all before i even knew they were on sale :(

 

Someone must have grabbed all 8 at once as i check TRU every other day on my way home, i was kicking myself ><

If they do... buy them! Kids love them!

 

I found one 5884 for 31 euro and 3 5883's for about 20 euro. I am contemplating if to buy them. I sold two 5885's last week and made a very nice profit. What do you guys and gals think?

My B&****** has had 2x 5885 Triceratops Trapper's for over 2 years now. Has a $54.95 price tag on it. It seems to be the least performing Dino set. Waiting for them to get the 30% off sticker. Or better yet the red 50% red dot sticker.

As an investment I would not pick it at 30% (unless you want it for yourself or your son).

 

About another set, it was hard for me to sell the Dino HQ 5887, but finally they sold themselve in a month. Amazing, I don't understand. Sold 5 of them, still have 1, made some nice return.

I don't understand, maybe a Jurassic Park movie has been on TV screens, lol.

 

About Jurasic Park (admire the transition please) I think we should sell the 2012 Dino sets before spring 2015 because if LEGO makes a deal with the next JP movie (Jurassic World, June 2015), it will blast them like a meteorite would...

Dino sets will do amazingly good (already are) for anyone who got them atleast 40%+ off preferably 50%....

 

I wish I bought the Dino HQ at 40% off in my local store when it was available....

I sold one 5887 two months ago with a very nice profit....I would like to have many more....I think that the other sets of the theme are not so cool

I suggest preparing to sell all your Dino sets soon. The upcoming Jurassic Wolf / Park line is basically a refresh.
