Ideas #005: 21104 - NASA Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover

Recommended Posts

But the question is if it does make a big sense to wait another months or is the maximum reached...?

 

I can remember that also Hayabusa has increased to 80 - 100 Euro and you could get this one for about one year. 

 

Since two or three months the price went up again to about 150 or more Euro...

 

Then you should sell a few now and then. I had seven and sold already two. I have five left now and wait what happens. 

 

You know the saying: "Better one bird in the hand than ten in the air".

I think he is the seller on Ebay who has currently 22 for selling and 24 have been already sold. 

I know that he had in the last time I have spoken to him about 75 sets...

 

A few less than I have... ;-) 

Hmm, makes sense as he is the one keeping the price down.

In USA at least, true, but not in Germany. The cheapest one here is 133 Euro incl. shipping costs...

I don't think that is him.  I thought he was in Florida and that seller is in California.  But it is still $99.99 with the $10 economy shipping added in.

Come to think of it, didn't Jojoyojimbi mainly sell on Amazon ?

 

Well, whoever that Californian is, s/he is keeping the price firmly at $99.99 (or even less depending on his/her mood)

because of US market only up to 150 Euro... Why?

Because if the price would be higher people from EU could buy it in USA at 100 Euro and pay about 50 Euro duties and shipping costs and this would be still lower than the 150 Euro price for this set...

Prices here in Australia have flatlined at about US$75, only a couple sell a month on Ebay which is a lot less than last year. I might look at selling my remaining stock in the US if prices continue to climb there.

I am just patiently watching the sub-$100 supplies dwindle.  This thing was sold out about 1.5 year ago and officially retired 6 months ago

 

I'd love to get one, but I'm not paying 3x for it. :)

Suit youself. Next up is 4x MSRP :money:

Funnily enough I finally sold 2 (one returned thanks to wrong address) in the past couple of weeks for €95 plus ship. and I notice my listing has a few watchers which it rarely had before. It had stalled at around €90-100 in EU for months.

It could use a little lift to help get it past €100 which I think a lot of customers have a hard time paying for a €30 set. I'm not expecting it to jump to €150 any time soon. Maybe in a year from now.

I agree. 100 euro is a magic line that will not be easily crossed. Also sales quantity-wise are not heartwarming. It will rise, but very slowly.

Yeah demand really isn`t what one might like for this set. It`s easy to Bricklink as well, which is also kind of a let down to be honest. But that said, x3 MSRP give or take is nothing to cry about, that`s huge for any set, a very impressive feat.

Funny that this should come up today. I sold 3 yesterday on Amazon out of nowhere @ $120 plus shipping. Two to one buyer!. I had these listed on Amazon for over a month and I was the lowest or second lowest price by a few cents and no movement and then 3 in one day. No clue. Maybe it has something to do with that news story. I have 2 left and I'm going to hold out for $150.

I have sold 3 in the last three months at 114.99 and 119.99 Euro.

It seems that the magical 100 Euro border (in Europe similar to the $100 in US) has been broken...

Mauro

P.S. Would be nice as I still have dozens of them...

I'm telling you it is the movie. I was being kind of facetious as most people that would watch a lego documentary should also already know about the Rover, but if they don't the movie would increase the desire to buy one. If my theory is correct the 9493 sales have another reason to increase as it got the most screen time by far.

Just sold 2 more same buyer on eBay GSP at $115 each so I would say it has broken the $100 barrier. That makes 6 sold above $100 in the week since the movie has come out.

I could have easily sold a lot of mine at $115 but decided to just wait patiently at the next price point:D
