three key is also broken but I guess it will be max 1 or 2 at the beginning. Probably get one on the 1st and another to stack with the Xmas BF/CM set - does anyone know the minimum qualifying purchase in Euros?

Think it's 10000

The minifigs on this set alone will make sure this set will do well post EOL. 

Until they get released from Lego Dimensions. Seems like most new licences are getting there minifigs in that theme aswell i.e. BTTF, Ghostbusters, Doctor Who etc.

Level/story/team/fun packs contain 2 minifigures at most so it's doubtful that all four Beatles would be released that way. Just look at the two Ghostbusters teams where only one of four members (Peter Venkman/Abby Yates) got a minifigure released through Dimensions so far.

My local Lego store in Liverpool are doing an early release and signing session with the designer of the submarine kit tomorrow.

Do you think an autographed box will add any value?

I asked a while ago about a signed land speeder that I have and the consensus on here was that it wouldn't add any value.

Try for Paul or Ringo.

First instinct was yeah... But then I thought  who's going to know the signature from Adams? And unless you get some cert of authenticity most will probably be suspect or go for one in a mint box. 

So I'd be tempted to say you might get a few extra bucks but IMO probably nothing extra.

Unless it's Paul or Ringo, it'll probably become an un-mint box ;-) I'm giving it large on these but, not until they've been out a while longer and... if Tesco comes up trumps again!

I would guess not, but limited supporting data.  Below is my only example:

- 21012 Sydney Opera House is $116.62 at Jet.com (signed),  compared to $98.02 w/ Prime at Amazon.com (unsigned).

Just been reading the review on brickset and some (I.e most) of the comments are quite dismissive cos it's 'only the Beatles 'or 'they have no meaning these days' or 'no one over 30 knows who they are'. I'm flummoxed, do these people think Wall-E is the epitome of culture?

Don't you mean under 30?

I am nowhere near heavy of a Beatles fan as many are yet still impressed by this in my opinion very faithful design. Though a number of people probably have not watched the source material's film, I cannot think of anyone who has never heard about The Beatles. Shoot, you can't take a basic music class without the band being spotlighted at least a little.

Ahh ok. Didn't even know there was a movie! 

I need to get out more. : /

It's the version of the beatles that this set is based on, the animated Yellow Submarine movie. Check it out sometime, it's sort of wacky and nonsensical.

So, shall we take bets on how long it takes to go to backorder at SAH? I would say within 24h of release. Didn´t know that K´nex had made this set before.

Well, it sold out at Tesco within about 24 hours, and you had to physically search for the set (although that was probably all of us buying them up in the hope and anticipation that SAH goes oos). Either way, with a decent promo available I'm guessing 24 hours. Some sets on eBay have already been making 1.5 x RRP for all the eager beavers that couldn't wait!!!

Praying they do I have 240 on order from tesco

I knew it was someone here who cleared then out. I would be wary getting that many tbh, unless you already have buyers lined up. All of the usual places that stock ideas sets are getting them, but it will definitely sell out, however you need to sell really quick as will be another technic porsche situation.
