“all retired lego star wars sets |lego shop themes”

Rather than rehash how awesome the model is. Let me give you a few ideas and notes from my TWO experiences building the Death Star. Yup, I built one that didn’t survive a home move – so, I’ve just rebuilt can also buy Lego Harry Potter mini-figures individually on eBay or BrickLink if those are what the kids are really in love with. While one Harry Potter figure might still set you back $15 plus shipping (at the cheap end), that’s a lot cheaper than buying a whole set. Again, figures tend to be more expensive on eBay due to the auction effect.
The sets are still going to hang around until they’re out of stock, but once they’re gone that’s it. One thing this might help is the collectability of the sets after their shelf life runs out. There are some really cool Rogue One sets out there, but not everyone is going to get their hands on them.
➡ LEGO JUNIORS SETS ON SALE: LEGO Juniors is also having a major clearance with nine sets on sale. These are smaller sets in the $10-$25 range, but they are full of interesting parts, colors, minifigs and printed parts. You can find them under the LEGO Juniors section or under Sales and Deals at the Online LEGO Shop.
Rare part design is typically specialized pieces. Minifigures are the biggest rare part design in most sets due to unique prints. Other candidates are special doors/windows, animals, hoses and printed elements. At least these are the parts that have been rare for me and didn’t have in my collection. You should have a general knowledge of what is in your own spare parts collection, and also look for things that appear to be unique to the set.
Similar to Ebates, I use Upromise.com to get a bit of a price discount. If you can’t find a sale, I’ve used lego.com via Upromise and found that a) they have really excellent customer service and b) you can build up “lego points” to get a discount on a future purchase.
To me “Retiring Soon” label was the latest promotional tool from S@H to entice people to buy older sets WITHOUT loss of profit (via discounts).  Since it is just a promo tool, it does not need to be 100% reliable.
The components come down to “what’s in the box?”  This is an important aspect of any Lego set, but arguably even more so in a licensed theme like Star Wars.  As a fan of the movies, you know the sets before you start building them.  Sets which have the perfect balance of nostalgia and just plain cool features will inevitably rise to the top for us.  For more info and reviews please visit our friends at Ninja Brick and read their Star Wars reviews.
For me, secondary market is a blessing. I have a chance to buy retired technic sets thanks to collectors and investors and i don’t have a problem with paying an extra cash for those sets i call it “delay tax” because i just came out of my Dark Ages.
Thanks to Steven Morin for emailing in about this as a reminder. On LEGO Shop@home you can now search for sets that are due to be retired soon. Most are this year’s sets that only have a year’s shelf life, but if you want to complete a certain theme it can at least give you an idea of what you need to get first. However, it’s the exclusives on the list that will interest most of us and as we predicted the other month there are some big sets going out by the end of 2015.
At this point, you’ll want to review each one to make sure the shipping charges are not inflated.  If they are, then delete the lot from your page.  I usually estimate the shipping by the pounds of the Legos being sold.  If you’re looking at a 100 lb. lot, then the shipping should not be $200.  It should be closer to $100.  If it’s 20 lbs., the shipping will be somewhere in the ballpark of $20.  If the seller has listed the shipping at $50 for 20 lbs., then more than likely, they’ve inflated their prices.  When you are finished, you’ll have narrowed down your search to reputable sellers who are fair and honorable. 
The LEGO Ninjago’s 70751 Temple of Airjitzu set is a highly detailed temple building with many surprises and features. It includes many delightful architectural features like Oriental–style decorated windows and sliding doors. The intricate wooden-frame-style walls of the nearby Blacksmiths. As… Continue Reading →
Also, when it is a line of products people who got into the game late will want to purchase the earlier models. If you just found out about Fire Brigade and Emporium, you looked into it and found out about Cafe Corner being an earlier set in the line, you’d might really want to get one.
Updated January 19, 2016 With set 10236 currently temporarily out of stock on LEGO’s North American website until January 2016, some are wondering if we will see LEGO Ewok Village retirement soon. The Ewok Village will be two years old… Continue Reading →
