79115 - Turtle Van Takedown

7 posts in this topic

79115 - TMNT Turtle Van Takedown - At shop.lego from July 2014 until August 2015, now labeled "Retired Product" - 368 pcs including 4 minifigs - MSRP $39.99 in USA - UPC 673419212175 - in Priority Mail shipper 1095 weighs just under 2 lbs - Contains 3 sealed bags, 1 loose base plate, 1 sticker sheet, 2 manuals.

So what's up with this set?  I have been lucky to find a few over the past year for under $20 each. So far I've been satisfied with the quick flip for near 100% net profit. But they seem to have good demand, and sell quickly (sells much faster than 79116 Big Rig Snow Getaway). I don't know much about TMNT.  Is there something special about this set? Is the Turtle Van as iconic to TMNT as say, The Mystery Machine is for Scooby-Doo?  Can this set go to $100 or more?

The thing was barely in the movie, just at the very end.  I do think it's a nice solid build.

Top search result on this one on Amazon is $65, only 29 sellers. Climbing. 

Cool! My KMarts still have several.

This was very hard to find on clearance around here. It seemed to disappear from shelves before prices got cut, so I'm not surprised to see it doing so well. I don't think very many people were able to stock up on it.

I only have a couple. Pairs well with the Lair from the movie series, since you get all 4 turtles, shredder, and splinter. Only really miss April. I'm not a fan of the style or the movies but they should be easy money since they don't have the license now.
