The door is ajar and Walmart is nowhere to be found. They could have capitalized on this big time but didn’t do a thing. eBay, too zzzz

I did hear a radio commercial yesterday for walmart promoting that you don't need to pay $120 bucks to get free 2 day shipping from them. 

They mentioned amazon by name.

Never really invested in Duplo. The train set looks somewhat tempting since it was a TRU exclusive but no one seems to care for it much. ANY input? Thanks always for the advice!

I see nothing tempting.  20% discount is too tiny to work with unless you really believe in the set.  Certainly the adult collector market is microscopic.  Kids of the Duplo age are not old enough to create the "I want this!" demand that would prompt parents to pay a premium for a specific set.  So you would be looking for the parent/grandparent that convinces themselves that this is the only Duplo set the child will want... and that he/she will not quickly outgrow the toy.

This is all true

 

also I have a tiny giraffe train set we paid $55 for because it was out of print and my 3 year old was in love with it and cried about it for a week until we finally ordered it.

I really dont get why amazon is so stingy with lego deals.  They likely make more money of the lego secondary markent, than they do off the primary.  which they seem to be aware of given their occasional business pricing.  I get that they dont want to piss off the anti resellers too much, but 20% on a few old sets is really a slap in the face to everyone.

are people really this gullible these days, that all it takes to sell a bunch of junk is to really over hype it?

Short answer: yes. Longer answer: it's not "these days," it's "always have been."

Duplo trains are best Duplo 'investment', but it's a roll of the dice---not a sure a thing.  I've done well in the past with unique Duplo train pieces, (like the bridge from 2006(?)) but the hold time can be loooooong.  Basically, you'll need to wait for a greater fool to come along.
