Paying rrp on new sets that will likely be on shelf for 18-24 months?

He needs a reason to complain about lego investing in 1-2 years.

Slip pickings at Walmarts today. Keep telling myself that I’m done with this round but something keeps taking me to Walmarts. One of the sets was this little surprise today for $10:

Not actual sets but Lego Bricks and Pieces opened up and I started getting handfuls of some of the newer piece and/or color offerings:

What is the rock looking piece?  I'm thinking I could use that in a MOC I'm starting to build.

Thanks.

It's the minifig legs for the Sandman in one of the new Spiderman sets

10185 Green Grocer, all bags sealed but box opened, for £430. I'd just finally sold my BNIB Green Grocer a couple of weeks ago for £780 after fees, so I basically traded 10185 for 10185 plus £350 cash. Good result! Question is, do I now keep this one or sell it? I couldn't justify building the previous one because I'd still paid a lot for it, but taking that one into account this one is probably less than £50.

Not sure of the used value but it won't be much less than that so I'd build it.

If it were me I would keep and build it.  Chances like this do not come along all that often.  :)

I wish I'd built one of my Green Grocers rather than letting them all go too cheap and too early. Go on, built it as you'll get your money back eventually.

Depends how you look at it. It'll either still be worth what I paid, or I'm reducing the value by £300 or so. New sets sure are nice though.

Where did you get it?

No brainer for me. Build. Build. Build!

It was an eBay auction. Didn't expect to get it for that price but I think it was erroneously listed as used which probably helped.

Building it would be amazing but would it be as amazing as selling it and buying Apocolysburg potentially for free? Depends how you feel about modulars and collecting.

I definitely want a GG to keep, it would just be a lot easier if I got a used one.

I bought the LEGO Movie 2 Wyldstyle BrickHeadz 41635 - https://www.walmart.com/ip/THE-LEGO-MOVIE-2-BrickHeadz-Wyldstyle-41635-Walmart-com-Exclusive/931040555

It says its a Walmart.com exclusive and in the description states, “Limited quantities available  – each set individually numbered 1 out of 5000 units.”

might be a mistake, but thought it was worth it. If they aren’t numbered I’ll return it.

I bought a 40186 Year of the Pig Set from BL. Not really inclined for the $88 price threshold from LEGO. 

Definitely inclined to celebrate the Lunar New Year.

TY. Just picked up 4 of each. Worth the gamble.


This article has a picture of box with the limited addition sticker on it, so it seems legit. I’m a sucker for items like this. I like knowing how many are out there.

So, I bought a used 8039 Venator locally today for $100. Supposed to be 100% complete with box and instructions... it was partly disassembled. I get it home to start taking it apart to inventory and rebuild only to find out a lot of pieces have been glued together. Luckily it looks like just good old Elmer's school glue. Does anyone have any good ideas on how to clean old glue from pieces?

Elmer’s glue is water soluble. Cloth and water.

I'm so jealous! My mom's in Hong Kong right now but she's clueless when it comes to Lego. I'm afraid if I tell her to pick me up one of each set, she's going to come home with bogus bricks or some other knockoff brand.
