60036 - Arctic Base Camp

Recommended Posts

60036 now $59.99 at TRU.com + get a free ($10) Airjitsu with purchase. Good deal... but I haven't bought yet.  I've been waiting for a deal like this, but am having trouble pulling the trigger. This set (and this deal) reminds me a lot of 4204 The Mine.  I bought a 4204 at $58.99 almost exactly a year ago from TRU. Also a great "flagship" set from a great, "not-likely-to-be-repeated-soon" theme. But now - a year after they've disappeared from store shelves - can still be had on Amazon at (less than) the $99 retail, with over 100 sellers.  Yeah... 60036 is probably not a loser at this price, but is it a winner?

I think you answered your own question.

I picked up 3 of these a couple of years ago for $18 a piece during a Walmart clearance haul.  Best haul ever.  Never to be repeated.  Anyway, it's a neat little set that includes a lot of play features.  The base section itself is great.  Fully enclosed, lots of detail (for a City set).  The rest is a bit juniorized for my taste.  Long term I see it doing ok.  But Lego seems to be releasing a new City sub-theme of similar quality each season so there will be competition.  Like someone else I sold mine last year for RRP.

I found 2 of these at Walmart clearance for $45 about a year ago.  I'm still holding on to them but definitely glad I didn't pay more than I did.  It is a very slow seller as you see based on Amazon & eBay sales.  Though I do think it will do OK but not great during the holiday season.
