Wall-E broke the $100 barrier FBA - $106 Buy Box

Waiting for $150 before trickling them out. Stay on target.

Is anyone worried about reselling a first run version without the updated neck pieces? Or just let a buyer sort that out themselves?

Have a look on eBay. I've noticed some go for less than RRP so prices appear to have topped out.

To be clear I'm referring to NISB not used.

If you know you have V1.0 then why not ask Lego for the kit? That way you have it should there be any supply issues down the line.

I guess if you have 99 of them, it could be a reseller scum red flag....

Did you type in 21304 by mistake? New  sealed Wall-E´s are going for between 60 and 80 euros on ebay Europe. Doctor Who on the other hand.....

Yeah I only have 3, but don't even know if they're all first run. That is a good point, I guess I assumed they might not ship the parts anymore.

They will, if they still have the parts. I don't know about the Wall-E neck fix, but generally they ask for the number on your instruction manual for missing parts.

That's still close to UK RRP after fees, packing materials and tax. Doctor Who is still available in some UK retailers so it ain't done yet.

I guess UK ebayers just really like selling stuff and don´t care much about their bottom line as they are nearly always the ones with the lowest sold prices.

If you go back a few pages on this thread before all the retiring soon stuff, you should find the seal codes that were determined to be the crossover. There were 2 separate fixes and IIRC December 2015 was the cutoff between good and bad versions but better to do due diligence. If you only have 3 with affected seals, it´s worth contacting TLG as you never know how they will respond 5 years down the line to the end user.

So week 47 is the minimum guarantee for the neck fix, it would seem. I wonder if the original ones will fetch a premium - you could have snoozing Wall-E and fully charged Wall-E together.

FYI: Info from @Val-E located on page 19 of this thread.  (Which means my 37R5 is before the fix... oh well, I only have the one for future personal build so not too worried.)

Yup, you probably have version 1.1 where the hinges got changed but droopy neck got done after that. 2016 seals should be safe.

Don't sweat it. Just sell them and move on when it's time.

Just got my backorder for LEGO Shop at Home US, it has 3 seals on it, the two outer seals appear to be a 39R5 over the top of a 33R5, the middle (3rd) one says 47R5.

This post would appear to show the three versions. Week 33 would be 1.0 first batch as release was September. Week 39 would have had the hinge fix and week 47 would have been the final droopy neck fix kit.

You rock, clearly I am too lazy to search the thread. Will check out my labels.

This set was very to easy to get at nearly 50% (£23 av for mine)off so its prob those being sold now. Once they've cleared out this set will go up again.I mean its still going up now. To think this set has topped out is crazy.

I wish hadn't bought any dr who and just wall-e, but £20 a set was hard to turn down.

Yes, 3 for 2 will have had a influence on UK prices, as well as Ebay not charging any commissions, but I thought Tabby made off with all the Wall-E´s online!

This is one of the few sets I´d keep for long term hold - similar to Delorean or Mystery Machine.

Yeah I agree, long term hold on this one. There also a slim chance at some point an Eva set gets made, or a wall-e 2.

If someone is planning to visit Dubai I recommend to sacrifice extra 5 min in Dubai Mall Lego Store, they still are hoarding plenty of already retired sets including Wall-E, Jurrasic Park, Maze etc.

Those would carry on nicely in coach.
