What sets you picking up next double VIP?

Recommended Posts

My guess Lego is just as excited about double pts as some of us are. From the list looks like they will make some big money this weekend. I'll probably finally get my Tumber for my own collection and either a ewok village or sandcrawler

Nice.....I have 60 LEGO bucks and I'm gonna use it on the Kwik-E-Mart...and will have to skip double points cause I just bought the house (which, surprisingly...I ended up getting 3X points on so I'm not too butthurt about it) I personally think the simpsons house will do best investing wise as many will underestimate it's cult following,  TOO has been out 6 months more than SH...yet many more people claim to own the SH on brickset.....compare the numbers to some other popular sets, it's no schlub, consistently high on purchase list and highly reviwed on amazon as well......... but I'm no investor...I just stick bricks together :)

How did you get 3X points, damaged box?

The UK site now has 2x VIP which I thought wasn't until 25MAR. I filled my basket with 5x Sea Cow & 5x Palace Cinema only to decide to not order at the last minute. I really have to stop buying until I've offloaded ALL of my current stock before deciding to start again. I thought about the Red 5 also but, its price is just still too high and it could be a turkey like the B-Wing due to low sales.

5x and 5x??? Wouldn't that raise a red flag for banning?

Not in the UK as no bans here that I know of. I bottled out of the order anyway as I need to be sensible and get rid of all my excess stock first.

Sydney Opera House for sure, possibly the Sandcrawler as well.

That thing is like $300....how long will that takes to reach 100% increase...I'm afraid not many people might drop $600 on this lego set.

Similar things were said about the town hall.

Just started investing. Have placed 4 seperate orders - PS, PC, VW Camper van and 6 easter sets. Didnt realise you get the Elves polybag on these items so 4 of them will be nice bonus.

Does LEGO Shop at Home normally ship in factory sealed cases? For example an order of two PS would come in a case and would that be shipped in a larger box? Thanks,

Opinions, Tower of Orthanc or Simpsons house and why?

 

Not looking for someone else to do the work for me, just want to hear what peoples takes are on these two sets in comparison to each other.

 

I am going to buy one during double VIP but, still undecided on which.

Desirable "True Exclusives" only, I mean the ones sold at LEGO only, NOT at Amazon, John Lewis, TRU, etc.

Which ones are they? I saw a Sea Cow at Smyth toys. So you cannot count this one aa True exclusive then?

Simpsons, 2014 still have some time before EOL. I would wait.

ToO - I'm not sure about this...as I'm not a fan of LOTR. Still new.

This is a tough one, I'm having the same struggle deciding.

Both have huge followings. The ToO is more impressive than the Simpsons house to me but as an investment, the LOTR line hasn't done very well and this is the first wave of the Simpsons line so who knows.

Simpsons house will end up being bigger winner in long run IMO but both should do well. If we keep getting new simpsons sets this first one will be gold

Agree, usually the first set of a theme is an awesome investment. Pair it up with the Kwik. $_$
