LEGO Set Reissues - open speculation

Recommended Posts

As we have seen with 10249 WV Toy Shop, and the upcoming 75159 Death Star, when a set goes into retirement there is no longer any guarantee that it will be able to stay retired.  The reasons may be varied, but the facts are that there is a whole new class of Lego sets, those that are Coming Out of Retirement Soon.  Sure they might have a few new pieces, a couple of mini figures that had some work done, but for all intents and purposes its the same set.  So which is next?   My guess: 10179 with a new radar dish.

Nice idea, but I think the title is a bit confusing. I thought this was the "retiring soon" thread.

Anyway, I think another Black Pearl or something is a possibility for next year. 199€ of course.

I'd put money on a variant of 10179 being on sale within 2 years. If I'm wrong, I'll donate $50 to BP or a charity of their choice ;-)

LEGO are missing out on a lot of profit they don't resurrect 10179.

If I had 10179s in stock, I'd be getting rid of them asap! I have one left which graded 9.5 in perspex and wrapped in black-out plastic that I'll never sell.

As far as I know, the Winter Village Market and Santa's Workshop were resurrected in the UK.

I don't think we'll see another rehash of a MF. Perhaps a 10178 instead of 10179.

Maybe they'll do 8274 Combine Harvester like they were supposed to.

I did read somewhere (can't recall where) that LEGO are going to place a "LEGO Again" shop on eBay where buyers can request any retired set and LEGO will supply it within 30 days at current RRP (allowing for inflation ) in a plain box. This alone will mean it's Game Over for LEGO investing. I'll do some digging to see if I can find out more about it.

I think "Coming Out Of Retirement - Open Speculation" might work better.

I have thought of such a thing as well, but there would need to be a healthy premium (to make it worthwhile).

I'm actually surprised they don't have a scratch and dent shop within their online shop. (for returns after they ship their sets with too many F*#k'n air pillows crammed on top)

With the minifig sticker sheet too? If yes, they will take the secondary market has well. All of it. But i don't see them printing on demand minifigures..  it's a robot doing it, and cleaning etc everytime isnt worth it, you have to make lot. Any retired set doesnt make senses to me.

If Trump wins... it will remain available for 8 years like DS.

If Trump wins the next Creator Landmark set will be the America/Mexico Wall... screw the Great Wall of China.
