Ideas #016: 21308 - Adventure Time

Recommended Posts

First sold out at Shop@home EU (a miracle, even at 30%/50% off). Now resurrected?

https://shop.lego.com/nl-NL/Adventure-Time-21308

Backorders accepted. Maybe they anticipate on the returns to come from people who bought at 50% off and realise there’s still not very much to gain? 😉

Hopefully the Caterham and Beatles Yellow Sub stay away. The are, however, again visible between the Ideas section as ‘sold out’. They disappeared earlier.

Local store has had these for months at £34 no takers.

It was 50% off at SAH and no takers either. I guess it will make the 50% off final summer clearance for retiring items.

If SAH removed the buying restrictions when on sale, they'd have got rid of this crap ages ago and we'd no longer need to mention it.

So at what price would people actually buy these? They're getting pretty cheap (I can get them locally at 62% off). I picked up a few, but unsure if I'm willing to buy many as I expect little demand.

Thoughts?

This time I have to be Val-E, this set just sucks :P

Everyone´s favourite subprime IDEAS set that just won´t die has just moved to C2C status at SAH Europe. A few months short of Ecto 1´s record.

LOL..... this will be the dark horse sleeper that 99% of you missed out on!

Ecto-1 has nearly reached RRP after fees so there's still hope of some beer money from AT.

Ecto1 has the firehouse to pair with. When that retires it could bump Ecto 1 up a little.   Adventure Time just doesn't seem that collectible for AFOL.   Or really even wanted  by anybody.    That being said, its always about buy in costs.  There is Money in every set if your savvy enough.

It's all about the buy-in ;)

Bought on clearance well after retirement, all sold within 6 months.

Most of us will never see 75% off sets. Of course there is money to be made when you can sell it yourself for basically 50% off.

This has been 50% off at my Kohl's for a while.

I'm not interested at all but it's a good set to get if you're looking for small plates and cheese slopes to add to your brick inventory.

I just bought a couple at 80% off at Kohls. One to mess around with (maybe try making some alt builds) one to stash away just in case...

At 80% off, how can you go wrong?

I feel like a loser, but this party just started pumping.

5x part out if you’re into that sort of thing. A few printed parts that will probably take awhile to sell.

5x what buy in? On what platform?

Went to my local Kohl's and found 11 of the Aventure time sets.  After everything was said and done I paid $9.55 a set.   Still wondering if this is a good decision after reading all the comments.

And a few colors that will take a while to sell, too.

Even previous turds, like Birds (2015 release?), are selling for more than retail. I think it was a $50 set and current eBay price is around $65 (?).  It's just going to take a while for Adventure Time to get there, because so many of us are going to get it at the deep discount price and can list it at various below retail prices depending on what profit we're comfortable with. While the supply is below retail, buyers might feel comfortable waiting to make their purchase, too. If you're going for a diversified brickfolio, this is low risk so long as you have patience and a long-term outlook. If you're more into putting your eggs into a few baskets, shorter return times, or have a limited budget with which to invest, this might not be the greatest, IMHO.
