5886 - T-Rex Hunter

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

Shooting out a request to the more knowledgeable on here about Dino set 5886 (T-Rex Hunter). in Australia this retailed at $99.99, and I can get a couple at 20% off. eBay tends to indicate after fees I'd not pull in much of a profit, but does anyone see this as having good longer term growth? With the line now done, I wonder what future interest there generally is for such?

 

Thanks in advance for your input.

:whistle:

 

If it makes you happy, this is in a store, not online. So you're well outta luck anyway. But thanks for the tip. I trust your call, so will pick 'em up.

 

Presumably they would be a keeper for the moment?

Get them. This set is money. Look at the two dino sets with Trex's in them. This set is just not easy to find now and the trex alone is worth 50 or 60$. I think long term it will be a $150 set.

 

How long term are you thinking? 3, 4 years?

2-3 yrs I would say. The Dino's are the really sales pitch for these sets. The buildings, vehicles, are nice, but no big thing. Stomping

Yeah 2-3. It went up 45% this past year - just doing 25% for the next two years puts it at $140ish.

 

More the reason is the Trex. only other way to get the awesome Trex (and its a different one) is Dino Defence which is on the fast track to being a $250 set. I think that will really raise the value of this set when Dino Defense starts to hit those really high numbers because it makes this set seem like a better value.

 

Could be wrong - but I have always loved this set as an investment. These retired right as I got into Lego investing. I wasn't ready to dive in, so I didn't buy too many of them. But it was the second one I said "thats a definite winner" right after 5887 (which is enjoying 90% CAGR).

I saw a lego dino triceratops trapper 5885 at TRU yesterday. $69.99 and the box had tape applied to the sides as the box apparently came apart. If only it was one lego set number higher... I could have a t-rex terrorizing Helms Deep.

Lol that is an awesome thought. I just got this set so I may do that.

 

But I don't play with my legos... so you know.

A gift shop/newsstand at the Orlando airport had four of these for $79.99/ea. I didn't want to add to my carry-on luggage.

 

Yeah 80$ is not that great unless you want to build it. As a built set, its not amazing - but that T-rex is straight up money. 

 

I have seriously considered grabbing a few more of the dinosaur just to make a bigger set up. They are awesome.

I have a LEGO DINO 5886 T-Rex Hunter and I would like to know what are the differences between the 2 numbers of the back of the building instructions (6002941 and 6002942). How important is this difference between those two

thank you
