79006 - The Council of Elrond

I bought 6 of these at 50% and was wondering what to do with them. Every store I go into has always had a ton of them so I know they don't sell that well, but at 50% and next week 70% of I had to grab some. I like a lot of the pieces in the set like the columns and the chairs. It also has white arches which you don't see too often. I think the playability  of these is poor which is why they aren't selling but parting or just using for MOC's could they be a winner?

While I'm new to this whole investing and selling theme, I know one thing: It's Lord of the Rings. It's generally a good set for a Lord of the Rings collection, and for any collection really. I will pick one up for personal collection, myself. It may take a while to get some value to that set though.

I think the moc looks great, but if you look at the minifigures, it honestly looks like a bunch of guys sitting in recliners...

Build this

Haha I was just about to say that! They look a little too cozy.

While it certainly doesn't compare to some of the Rivendell mocs out there; i have 1 in my collection on display and i think it's a pretty nice looking set. I'd be all over it at %50-70 off and i hope the Canadian Target follows the US one with the clearance soon on this set (at least it sounds like you're talking about a Target clearance).

I think it will be a stinker; even post EOL.  Just doesn't do anything for the child LEGO fan.....and for alot of adult LOTR fans...I can't imagine it's a display worthy representation of the Council of Elrond.  That MOC is money....so maybe it'll be a nice "part out" set for MOCs.

As I recall, I wrote this down as one of my part out sets to avoid. I honestly would just keep them. Not a lot of capital tied up - could be a sleeper post EOL just because no one will hoarde them. But you will be able to easily get your money back out.

I would disagree, found 4 of these on clearance last year and turned them into 120% profit in a couple of weeks

what's the point? If I got this for $5 a piece in clearance and sold it for $25, that's 400% profit. Does that mean the set has done fantastic?

Yet the set is still being offered at rrp, more than 6 months after eol. UG, ToO and even attack on wt showed better gains, regardless of buy in.
