TheOrcKing, are these for you or for investment? Just curious.

I was replying in general but specifically, they would be for me. :pardon:

I passed on many at $21 each.  I thought that since I already had 20, I wasn't going to gamble on many more.  I guess I should have known, it wasn't much of a gamble.

I bought four of these today for $19.99 each. With only four, would you guys sell these now, or hold them.

Personal choice. Ill be selling a few of mine that have beat up boxes I picked up at kmart over the summer, but the rest I'm holding.

This was the first set I began hoarding when I started last year.  With the over 90% of them purchased at $21 or less, I'm very happy with that decision.

With the massive MOC of Helm's Deep and Osgiliath that I've seen, how can these minifig prices not be soaring? There are some massive Uruk-Hai armies in those. Just saying...

Prices seem to have dipped which is to be expected. I see this hitting 60 by christmas. Pretty good margins for those that picked them up in the 15 to 20 range.

stay the course and have faith.

havent had a LOTR/Hobbit movie recently plus the lego investment community is grow at a staggering pace, i really think we need to learn to be happy with getting a 100% return in 1-2 years, the days of 300-400% returns in 1 year on ANY lego set are over, the word is out, people are jumping on the lego investment wagon, just be happy you got in while you did.

Oh I got nothing but time. I was just making an observation. I've seen a couple of huge MOCs with these Uruk-Hai's in them, so I wondered why these weren't harder to find. Maybe these guys are just buying the minfigs themselves.

What are the latest ideas about 9471?  Could any of the Lego Ideas projects move these battle pack type of LOTR or Hobbit sets higher this spring or summer?

My thought after seeing the battle of the Five Armies is that This Uruk Hai pack could fill the void of wanting a massive army of Orcs and walls for them to attack. 

 

If these aren't the correct types of Orc's i'll defer to true LOTR fans, but i would think there might be some crossover appeal here?

Orcs and Uruk-hai are different creatures.

 

 

See there you go, I knew i was wrong just not how far off i was. :)

 

For me it's probably like someone saying a stormtrooper is the same is boba fett.

 

(but in a way they are............mind blown)

What is the consensus on the future growth of this set? The set is selling for $55-$60 CAGR to date is about 24%, has it peaked? Or will it continue to grow at that rate?

I have an opportunity to sell 5 of the 14 I have left, on eBay, for about $5 over the current Brickpicker value. Would anyone continue to hold them all?
