Investing in the UK

Recommended Posts

I have not tried tesco direct as I do not know if they bash the boxes. I think your profile defaults to USA unless you go in and change it. If you quote dollars people assume you are buying in the USA a market that on average has 30% buying and selling prices. So buying *** for $10 is not a good deal from a US point of view as it only about 25% off, but to a UK person it's 50% off which is very good.

I started buying these at series 4. But after series 9 I thought I had too many so I have not bought any. I bought them for display, as I had not heard of lego investing back. I don't think you can make any meaningful money out of these, apart from the mr gold of course.

Ok, thanks for all your replies! I plan on keeping mine and seeing what happens, will they retain any value once opened?

Not sure. But they should not lose value. :) Although I am having trouble shifting these... http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290916246346?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649#ht_770wt_1141 Relisting for the 3rd time! :( One of the reasons why I have decided to stop, too many duplicates and I am not a good smoosher. And I can buy 30210 & 30211 LOTR poly bags for
