“rare lego star wars minifigures +new lego”

Two last two sets retiring soon are the #10218 LEGO Creator Pet Shop and the #10234 LEGO Creator Sydney Opera House. The LEGO Creator Pet Shop has been the longest standing LEGO Modular Buildings, first released back in 2011. It is the only building in the series that has a split footprint, making it extremely versatile. Even if you already have one, I would recommend getting another, just in case you ever need it in your layout. Half of the building is a generic apartment, while the pet shop side can easily be converted into other stores to create more variety. And the LEGO Creator Sydney Opera House is a beautiful and accurate display piece. You can find both sets under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Fair enough, and before the internet I think that would be a valid point. I personally cannot see how paying more makes collecting more fun? Its not like you work harder (other than for your money) to buy it. Instead of buying from one web site you just buy from another.
Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia hold iconic status in the Star Wars universe. LEGO Star Wars minifigures allow movie fans to collect and play with their favorite characters….
This is a great purchase. It didn’t take me too long to build it, just an hour or two, and it was bigger than I thought. It was fun creating the drawbridge and the steel gate, I think that this is a great addition to have.

This set contains 996 pieces, spread between 10 numbered bags and one unnumbered bag of base plates. The instructions are printed on three booklets, bound to a sheet of cardboard. No paperweights required. Also included is a sheet of stickers with brick patterns, as well as a sheet of malleable plastic with three flags.

Im not sure whats going on, i think they are updating the website. Like the LOTR section doesnt have any of the old sets, the hobbit and other themes have zero listings lol As of last night orc forge was still listed as retiring soon and was “temp out of stock”
Judith, the discrepancy in sales usually has to do with what each region has in stock, and also what does and doesn’t sell well. The US market is very different from the market in the UK. We get our LEGO sets from the factory in Mexico (mostly), while you guys get them from mainland Europe (Denmark, Hungary, the Czech Republic). What sells well here may not sell well in the UK, and vice versa. There are even sets that only appear in a certain region based on market research and demand. It is normal for companies to have different strategies for different markets, based on extensive market research.

Also on the way out is 75142 Homing Spider Droid, and while few will have rushed to pick up what was essentially a lazy repackage of 2013’s 75016 Homing Spider Droid, if you were eyeing it up then you may need to act fast.
If you recall, the September LEGO Store Calendar mentioned two exclusive sets that were slated for early VIP release from September 14 to 30. We now know that the first is the highly publicized UCS Millennium Falcon (75192), while the second is the LEGO Creator Expert Winter Village Station (10259). The latter is the fifth holiday-themed, D2C Creator Expert set to be released by LEGO, following the likes of the Winter Village Market (10235), Santa’s Workshop (10245), Winter Toy Shop (10249), and the Winter Holiday Train (10254). read more
I’d love Lego Hunger Games. I was thinking of making my own too. Actually my Dino Hunter with the CMF series will be my Katniss, though, I think she needs a nicer looking face. Katniss has resting bitch face but not that bad.
As your kids grow up, they won’t want to look at a house with 6 different color bricks but I don’t think they realize that this is why they aren’t satisfied with their LEGO stash.  This is one reason why they veer towards the kits.  Their tastes are more complicated. They want art!  But instead of crying as you buy set after set, try committing to a couple of colors and just keep buying those.  Get inspired by Nathan Sawaya’s Book: The Art of Nathan Sawaya or visit The Art of the Brick Exhibit at Discovery Times Square.  If you’ll be there on Sunday August 3rd look out for me!  Read more about Nathan Sawaya in my last post about LEGO Cuusoo and Yellow.
Legos have come a long way from when I played with them as a child over 20 years ago. Another benefit of the new Lego sets is the separation of the Lego pieces in different numbered bags. The numbered bags allow you to build a portion of the set with only pieces needed for that portion related to the directions.
2002 saw the release of Episode II and with it the first eight sets from the film, including a much bigger Slave I featuring the new Jango Fett color scheme (#7153), the Republic Gunship (#7163), and for the first time, Yoda as a minifigure in “Jedi Duel with Count Dooku” (#7103), and also as a much larger UCS set of Yoda (#7194) standing 14” high. A total of 25 sets were released in 2002 and these also included the first MINI vehicle delivered in a polybag rather than a box, a TIE Fighter (#3219). Technic versions of Darth Vader (#8010), Jango Fett (#8011), Super Battle Droid (#8012), and R2-D2/C-3PO Droid Collectors Set (#65081) were also released along with UCS versions of the Naboo Starfighter which featured chrome elements (#10026) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (#10030), which became the largest LEGO Star Wars set available, with 3,096 pieces. The Republic Gunship, released in 2002, is the only set to feature blue Super Battle Droids and commands a high after sale price — as do most retired LEGO Star Wars sets. The 1999 version of the X-wing Fighter was re-released in 2002 as set #7142; also the first LEGO Star Wars pens were introduced (not included in set counts).

If you want to get rid of them fast, I would really suggest Craiglist first and be willing to take less. Preparing, listing, and selling items on eBay is a lot of work. If you have the time though, you can pace yourself and list 2-5 items per month. It may take you a year to sell everything, but you will get the best return. So it just depends. 🙂
Also known as Dark Shark II or Black Skull, this Lego set is pretty detailed as the aftcastle can be accessed by opening its sidewalls as well as detaching a piece of the poop deck. You can also move the rudder by turning the steering wheel! One customer wrote, “…there is no set that can beat the Skull’s Eye Schooner.” This set is definitely in the running to be one of the best Lego sets because it has a plethora of cool features such as a compass next to the steering wheel and an odd postbox where you can find a glass and a gun.

If the sets have been used (pre-built) I would try Craigslist first to see if there is a local buyer. If you luck out you will have an end-buyer who just genuinely wants the sets you have for themselves and they are willing to pay a bit more for used sets, or you can sell them to a reseller for a bulk price. If you want top dollar you can list on eBay, but it will take up a lot of your time.

“lego store sydney review _lego store australia cheap”

I purchased this for my 10 year son who is a lego fanatic. For some reason Amazon wouldn’t post it so it was delivered to my sister in Vegas and flown out. This Town Hall is amazing, it took my son a day to build it and he has proclaimed that he will never pull it apart. The details are amazing and the building consists of three level with their own function. A wonderful addition to a lego collection, and although it says that it is for 14+ I think younger die-hard lego men will manage construction. This lego piece in Australia is $499.00, so Amazon please allow delivery to Australia as even with postage this is still a great deal – and I want to order some more!

Released in 2010, LEGO 10211 Grand Emporium was the fifth modular building and the second corner building. Featuring three floors linked by escalators, the Grand Emporium offered a unique, if familiar, rendition of a traditional urban department store. Other features of note include a revolving door, sizeable chandelier, and a large rooftop billboard.
It is difficult to single out one LEGO set from the rest because the manufactured quality, effort, imagination and creativity are recognized in every single set, with no difference. In my opinion you cannot make a mistake, whichever you choose. I started bying LEGO sets long time ago and still, after all these years, I see that they preserved all the trademarks of their products and plus added some improvements over time. A job well done!
Making the list as one of the 7 most expensive Lego sets, this stunning model of the Eiffel Town was released in 2007 and is built to 1:100 scale from the original blueprints. This set includes realistic and enchanting features and details such as a flag at the top of the elevators, four lifts toward the bottom of the tower that transport figurines from the base to the center section, and a small, brick-built French flag. It holds the record for the tallest Lego structure produced into a set and contains over three-thousand pieces!
Everyone has different opinions, but I’d recommend starting withe the Pet Shop. It’s one modular that almost everyone really likes and as the oldest one out there, the most likely to be discontinued next. It also is probably the most versatile modular out there. It looks great with my FB and GE. It pretty much looks like it was made to go next to PR and I imagine it looking really good next to the Detective Office too. Plus, you can split it up!
I haven’t bought anything from the bricklink vendors. I have been slowly sorting my Lego bricks and use the part and set catalogs at Bricklink to reference the part #s, colors, etc. so that I can put them into http://www.rebrickable.com (another site worth looking into).
I honestly don’t think it’s an issue for you to start collecting modulars now. Personally, the best set they’ve released is the newest one, which is the Parisian Restaurant. It has the intricate detailing and the most interior decoration. I think LEGO will not want to give up producing modulars as they appeal to AFOLS, TFOLS, and kids. It seems they will keep introducing a new one every January for some time to come. The modulars are big and take up a lot of space (and collect dust once they been sitting out for a while). Hence, I have been picking up the ones that really grab me, as I figure if i buy every one that comes along, I will be out of space pretty darn quick (aka- I will have a crisis when I need room for Wayne Manor, the X-Mansion, a hospital, museum, and library!). When I got back into LEGO, the Fire Brigade was still available at S@H, but I passed on it and the other modulars until the Palace Cinema was released. The PC sucked me into the modular line. Not being a completist and not liking clutter, I have been very selective about which modulars I pick up. Right now I have the PC, PR, and Pet Shop. I say, just pick up the modulars that you absolutely love as they’re released (and to hell with second market prices on retired sets). If you really want the GE or TH, buy sooner rather than later as prices will continue to go up as time goes on. If you can live without the TH, just wait and I think another big modular that will tie your LEGO city together will appear somewhere down the line. In my opinion, it’s not worth giving up the modular building experience just because certain ones have already retired. Maybe I am just talking out my a@@, but that’s my long-winded 2 cents. Happy building. 🙂
In order to compile a list of the biggest and most challenging Lego sets, it was necessary to narrow down the criteria. First, the sets have to be mass produced by LEGO. In other words, we’re not considering any giant custom sets like the 6-meter Death Star Trench or insane 150,000 piece recreation of Helm’s Deep from Lord of the Rings.
The prices may be steep, but if LEGO City is your thing, these building may very well be a perfect substitute as opposed to the entire City genre. And if you’ve got some real $$$, it’ll probably be wise to buy multiple of the same modulars – one for yourself, and the other to sell later at 2x $ so to “pay for” your first building through those profits.
With the popularity of LEGO Modular sets with the LEGO Creator Detective’s Office (10246) becoming the latest set released this year, LEGO has announced that they are bringing back some of the more popular Modular sets including Cafe Corner (10182) and the Green Grocer (10185) with a new theme/subtheme called Revival. This weekend at LEGO Stores and [email protected], they’ll be selling the sets for a limited time for VIP members. The only catch is there’s no word on what the pricing for the two sets will be. Hopefully, they’ll be the same as before but considering inflation since they sets were first released, I bet they’ll be slightly higher than before.
The only criticism of the set is that the building is in many ways a huge box of air. Which is somewhat unfair. It has an airy and open interior with high ceilings. But it still packs a good deal of details.

“lego ninjago shop lego sets with”

The Millennium Falcon set comes in at the top of our list simply because it’s freaking awesome.  It is among the two or three most recognizable images from the entire Star Wars franchise, so it easily checks the nostalgia box.  The set is huge at 1329 pieces and takes a few hours to complete.  Inside the box you get the awesome Falcon itself, complete with the iconic holochess board, cockpit, and even spring loaded blasters.  Additionally, you get a wealth of minifigurines including Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 (you get two more, but who cares about those guys?).  The minor complaint here is that this is The Force Awakens version, so you get old Han, rather than A New Hope Han.  That’s easy enough to ignore, however, with the all-around spectacular set included here.
It’s free advice but make sure you do the math! You will hopefully have better luck than me because it is confusing!  Most sellers are pros but once in a while, you might get someone looking to unload a stash.  Be ready for that.
2) Make those sets big, and hopefully limited editions. Limited-edition and seasonal sets typically appreciate well—as you likely know, the combination of rarity and desirability is the magic formula for appreciation. So do big ones (think: thousands of pieces) with intricate details. And anything related to movies or franchises (Star Wars, Disney, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, et al.) tend to garner strong returns.
Let’s face it, LEGO makes a lot of sets, and LEGO is expensive. LEGO also retires sets after a period of time. All of this means that we may not be able to afford everything we want when available, and by the time we are ready to buy, the set of our dreams could be out of production. Or you may learn about an old set just now, but it has been retired years ago. So what to do? This is what we will explore today. 🙂
Disclosure: Toys are Tools has not been paid by any of the aforementioned parties to write this post about saving you money.

After years of “boy lego”, my youngest daughter has proven to be the true Lego fan in the house. About four years ago I set up the girls with heir own little collections of bricks. We had been at our friends’ house where the littlest FishChick played for two hours building with Lego! Two hours! She had never done that at home because I’d never set her up for it. Sure, the boys could do that all day long, but she’d never played with Lego. Weird, huh? The best part was that she was using her imagination and creating her own things, namely ice cream sundaes.

Giving a child a book of building plans is akin to giving new life to the bricks you already have in your possession. Go one step further by containerizing a bunch of bricks the kids have forgotten about or sitting with them to organize their current collection.
It’s really lucky the Empire had a spare Death Star hanging around. Who would have thought a tiny exhaust port could be so much trouble! Save yourself the heartache of watching the first one blow up by building the Death Star II. If you hurry you could even build the 3,417 piece set before it’s destroyed in the Battle of Endor. This rare set was only around for two years, and the price tag reflects the short run. If you want it in your collection, you’ll spend over $2,000.
➡ LEGO ELVES SETS ON SALE: The mysterious and enchanted #41180 LEGO Elves Ragana’s Magic Shadow Castle is on sale, and also the #41175 LEGO Elves Fire Dragon’s Lava Cave with a very pretty dragon. You can find them under the LEGO Elves section or under Sales and Deals at the Online LEGO Shop.
So like mentioned above, if you want Lego to keep making sets then keep buying loads of them… But usually most runs go for about 2-3 years before being discontinued (unless it is specifically for a retail outlet (like the Helicopter and limo sets for walmart) then I am guessing it is as many as that store wants to buy and make and lego maybe matches that, who knows
I kept the enemy at bay for a long time. I was no stranger to stepping on sharp little pointy plastic pieces in the middle of the night; I had little brothers. So, I told my sons that we were not going to have Lego.
Although this set is relatively expensive for the number of pieces contained within (compared to the Lego average), the pieces tend to be larger ones, and the unique figures certainly justify the additional cost. This is a fantastic set for kids who want to re-enact the movie scene or are otherwise looking for a play-heavy set (the construction is durable and will hold up to enthusiastic play), or for Star Wars fans who want to build this set for display. If you’re going to get one current non-ship Star Wars set, this should be it. Recommended for everyone who loves Star Wars and Lego, especially if you can get this set at a discount.
When you sell LEGO you basically have two options; you either do all the work yourself of taking pictures, advertising, packing, shipping, etc. or you have someone else do it for you. If you do it yourself you will maximize your profits, but it will also take up significant amount of your time. If you ask someone else to do it, they will have to do all the work of reselling themselves, so you can’t expect them to pay you top price.
Since the company’s beginning in 1932, Lego has grown to be the world’s third largest toy manufacturer, and for good reason. No child or adult can resist creating their favorite monuments, figurines, ships, carousels, and many more! As for the Lego set collectors who love Star Wars, the Millennium Falcon set will keep your Jedi impulses at bay while you’re out in public. If you prefer Batman, then “Holy Cow!” you have to allow yourself to have a ball with the Batcave set! If you just want a good ‘ol pirate-ey time, then land your ship and drop your anchor on the Skull’s Eye Schooner set. Interestingly, the Lego name is derived from the two Danish words “Leg” and “Godt,” which means “play well,” and so you should.
Try the LEGO Adventure Book by Megan Rothrock.  Get them inspired, let them create their own thing and then sell it!  What an awesome lesson. If you ever want to save money, tell them to think like a designer and let them experience what it means to sell an idea by trying to sell their own!  My kid donated his creation to the school weekly flea market.  While he didn’t profit personally, he got major compliments at school. (WIN!)  He’s making a name for himself and hopefully he’ll get custom orders! Hooray for geekiness!
Nothing in life is easy or free, as ive said before the days of buying literally any starwars LEGO set and making 300-400% ROI in one year are long gone. There is still money to be made but its a much more complicated game now, to think that LEGO would hand you a profitable investment on a silver platter by labeling everything with “retiring soon” so you can go out at the last minute buy a bunch and flip them for loads of quick profit is crazy.
Perhaps the early retirement of the Ideas sets comes from the “Original Ideas” campaign; now that they’ve begun going for the unlicensed sets (Maze, Fishing Store) they want to distance themselves from the licensed products and take Ideas in a new direction altogether.

I can’t believe I bought this thing. The buyer’s remorse was instant. I’m 34 years old and bought a Lego Death Star. Is this what my life has come to? Spending hard earned paycheck dollars on plastic bricks? Whatever, dude! This is the BEST. TOY. EVERRRRR!!! I put it in my kitchen as a decoration. I like to crush the **** out of Lego Luke in the Lego trash compactor. Take that, maturity!
We are paying top dollar for sealed LEGO sets. We have a complete list of prices we are paying for sealed Star Wars LEGO sets. We are working on a more comprehensive list of prices that we are paying for other LEGO categories from the last 10 years or so, which we expect to have ready in July. For now, just send us a list at buying@brianstoys.com of the LEGO sets that you have for sale, and we will be happy to issue a price-quote within several days. For a limited time we are offering FREE shipping on your first box shipped to us by UPS, and we offer our account for discounted UPS rates on all of your other cartons shipped.
When I go to the US retiring page, all I get are bionicle sets and stuff, none of the items listed here. Then I click on the link in this article to the UK retiring page and these sets are listed there. What is going on? Is this why I never learned the Town Hall was retiring a couple years ago?
So now that we’re at the stage where we have a budget and we are convinced that this is a good idea that won’t break the bank, it’s time to get organized. For this I recommend using some of the tools on BrickLink. You can part out the set into a wanted list by clicking the Part Out link on the set’s page. Here we can choose various options like do we want minifigures listed as fully assembled, do we want to be notified when new items get listed, do we want boxes and instruction-manuals in our list, etc. I also like to make the minimum quantity wanted the same as what is on the list. That way I know how much is needed without having to look up the set every time.

“lego modular sets review _classic lego sets for sale cheap”

After this realization I debated getting the Grand Emporium and Fire Brigade, and decided not to because it will be very difficult to muster 6+ bills to get each of the original two sets(I will most definitely at some point need all the Modular sets). Well now that the pet shop is released I’m afraid on of the others will be discontinued the prices will sky rocket as their predecessors have, making it even more difficult to collect the modular buildings at a later date.
A sequel to the first Lego Batman called Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released in 2012 and included other DC Comics characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, most of them appearing towards the end of the story.

You can’t miss this bus to Billund! 😀 Epic door opening mechanism and many other interesting features are visible in this Lego Technic motorized model. “Hallbricks” spent almost one year building it… If you wish you can support this project on Lego Ideas. Enjoy!!! 😀
The following graph shows the lifespans of all modular buildings, both retired ones and currently available sets. Using this data from past sets, we can better assess the retirement risk of currently available modular buildings.
I agree, the date for Fire Brigade just doesn’t seem right. If it were following the trend of the previous sets in this theme it would discontinue around December this year. I would also think the Grand Emporium would discontinue in December 2012 instead of 2013 while the date for the Pet Shop seems correct.
My fiance is a big fan of Burton’s Batman Returns so I bought this as a gift for her and she absolutely loves it. The Penguin’s duck boat is awesome and so are the little penguins holding the dynamite. The little Batman submersible thing is neat too, but it’s definitely upstaged by the duck boat.
It is no secret that other LEGO orientated fan websites comment on PC set in the similar fashion: as for the investment portfolio one has to take into account: a) its been on the market for such a looooooooong time.. b) RRP purchase price is quite low given the number of the bricks in the set.. c) it just “went off” (released) at the time when Town Hall retired and suddenly everybody realised the potential of modulars.. so sure.. buy it at all costs and hope that in 5-years future you would be still able to sell it at least at the purchase costs.. .. you cant be so naive as to think that this “piece of article” is some sensational investment tip, are you?? 😀
You can also buy individual Lego pieces direct from the Lego.com. The selection is much less complete than Bricklink, but you can buy in bulk whereas sellers on Bricklink often have only one or two of each brick. You will not find specific Harry Potter mini-figures or “Hogwarts” pieces there, but you should be able to find many of the pieces you need to complete Harry Potter sets, and in the correct colors. The same might be the case if you live close to a Lego store (we don’t, so I can’t pop in and see what they have). Shipping from the Lego online store tends to be more expensive than BrickLink, so if you are only looking for a few parts bear that in mind. I got bulk quantities of windows, tan bricks, doors, and other various parts that look like they belong in the Hogwarts castle, and the shiping is much more reasonable once you’re ordering a larger amount of bricks. They often have special offers or free gifts with purchase, so you can find great value or get some exclusive bricks by ordering direct.

Space Port was released four years after Launch Command and is often seen as a continuation of that theme due to its similar logo and status as a Lego Town Subtheme. Space Port took the Launch Command concept and expanded upon it into new areas such as astronaut training and scientific experiments. The Space Port theme took a slightly less realistic approach to set design compared to Launch command, and some sets featured special Light & Sound bricks to enhance playability.
With the new Pet shop release, it leads me to believe either the Grand Emporium or the Fire Brigade will be discontinued soon. I was in my Dark Ages when the Cafe Corner and Green Grocer were released, but would see the other two on display and while I recognized them as beautiful models, I had no need for them (Being a castle/pirate and random good set collector). It wasn’t till I realized these all could be combined to make an amazing street that I saw the value in these sets.
Unlike many other toys, Legos have the ability to appeal to nearly all age groups, and a single Lego set can be fun to put together with the whole family. Legos are the combination of a puzzle, construction set, sculpture, and toy, and are equally stimulating for children and adults alike.
I have only bought new modulars for list price, so I can’t advise too much here. Which modulars will you be bricklinking? I imagine that CC, MS and GG will be incredibly expensive no matter how you get them since I have heard that some of the parts (I think the blues in CC and the sand green in GG) are quite expensive. I seem to remember people saying it is cheaper to bricklink though.
Axles – Axles, sometimes known as cross axles, are cross-shaped rods. They are most often used in rotating parts. When inserted into beam holes, they can turn freely. Like beams, axles are measured in stud lengths; axles with even lengths are colored black, and axles with odd lengths are colored grey. There are some specialty axles that are colored differently.
For Lego collectors seeking the best and most expensive Lego sets, this set is one to get your hands on. One customer wrote, “This is my favorite so far. It was great seeing this fully [built] and sitting majestically on the cabinet. My friend suggested it may need some lights. Next time I put it together I may try adding a few light bricks inside so there will be a bit of a glow from it.” He may be referencing the fact that the Taj Mahal takes on different hues according to the time of the day; a pinkish color in the morning, a milk white in the evening, and a golden color at night.
#10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square – released in 2017 – this is the largest LEGO Modular Building to date, celebrating the 10th anniversary of the collection. It should be around until 2021, although it might get retired earlier due to the higher price-tag (and thus less units selling).
Not half bad this was a present for my nephew to open on Christmas Eve (tradition in my family to open a small gift on Christmas Eve). My nephew seemed to like it and had it put together in about an hour, he’s 10. I also bought one for his brother who is 9 and he had a bit of a harder time putting it together.
The HOTTEST minifigs are all in this set. Never before seen prints, villans & heroes. A MUST HAVE for any lego or dc fan !!! You will NOT find it cheaper ! FREE SHIPPING ! You are purchasing the EXACT…
Wow you guys put out some really good arguments. At first I was getting a lot of talk about skipping it, but I think as this topic took off a little more the fans for the sets started being heard. I’m definitely leaning towards getting them now, but it’s still not set in stone yet. I would really like to get the Grand Emporium, it just seems like so much more fun, but I understand the Fire Brigade will probably be the first to go, so that’s the one I need to buy ASAP.
I also missed the Cafe Corner… though looking back it’s because I didn’t have the money. I’d say these are more for the AFOL who commit to City designs. So the only advantage to building minifig scale streets is if you want to make a huge Lego town. Lets face it… the direction it’s heading is far more expensive then we imagine. I like many different themes and would rather get a lot of different stuff than build a town. I feel bad about missing out on a cool series of sets, but every year I see plenty of other cool sets to keep my wallet empty. Unless you really like modern city don’t bother… the Ebay re-seller world makes collecting Lego horrible.

Also, I’m guessing that parting each set out would be significantly cheaper than paying the new/used prices for the full set? Any other thoughts you have on how to collect the retired modulars for as cheap as possible would be great!
Legos quality control is fantastic for the billions of parts they manufacture and sort into sets!! My recent experience was a fluke!! It was nice to know Lego wasn’t perfect after all!! I seen it happen myself!!
What would be of a LEGO Technic blog without a top ten list? I have built a list with the Technic sets I have been more impressed. I have a few of them and I will try for sure to get the rest. So here is the list
Keep the wheels of commerce turning with the authentic Town Hall! Build the authentic 3-story Town Hall, the latest addition to the LEGO® Modular Buildings series! This highly detailed model features large entranceway columns, a coat of arms, a tall bell tower with clock and a large skylight that lets you see inside! On the ground floor, the large hall, tax office and auditorium have everything you need to run the town. Take the working elevator up to the secretary and mayor’s offices on the second floor, realistically furnished with desks, chairs, paintings and even a frog sculpture. Hold a meeting and address the town’s citizens at the podium! On the third floor, a spacious meeting room features a large conference table, chairs, globe and plants.
The #10232 LEGO Creator Palace Cinema, the 8th in the LEGO Modular Buildings line, has been around since 2013, and it looks like LEGO felt it was time for it to retire. If you haven’t gotten the set yet, but would like to add it to your collection, I highly recommend you get it right away, as it will be retiring soon. Below is the message LEGO recently shared on their Facebook page, as well as a bit more info about the set. 🙂
I am excited about expanding my modular buildings collection and getting the Palace Cinema, which just came out, and I still have not gotten the LEGO Creator Pet Shop 10218 either, I am still sad I missed out on the Green Grocer.

Open up the doors and load up the cargo Lift the heavy loads with the forklift. Cargo plane features opening doors and tail, 4 engines and a sleek design. Cargo plane measures over 6″ (17cm) high, 22″…
I bought this for my grandson, and my Son says he loved it, that they put it together in one day and he just thought it was the neatest thing. So this is great for any 6-7 year old as a gift. But best to have an adult to help with some of the harder parts. I have 4 Grandsons and all of them are in love with Legos so anything new they will just love.
YES!!! they are amazing to build, the detail is great, and the ones that are out now are pretty cool. I have the cinema, pet shop, and emporium, but I would say the pet shop was the most fun. I am planning on getting the restaurant and the detective agency next spring, but I also know a couple shops that sell old sets, so if they are not outrageous, I will pick up the town hall and fire brigade (really bummed that I missed out on this one. 2 weeks after I bought the 3 I have, they retired it).

“lego exclusive sets 2016 cheap lego creator disney review”

In 2006, a poll was taken, aimed at the AFOL community. Adult fans were asked to share their ideas and opinions of what concept they would like to see for a future model from The LEGO Group. Some of the ideas submitted were: more town and everyday buildings, structures with more architectural detail, realistic buildings, minifigure scale buildings, solid and enclosed buildings, and more. These ideas were taken into consideration and a year later the first set in the Modular Buildings series, Café Corner, was released. A LEGO fan was invited to provide feedback and suggestions during the design of that set.[2]
The Lego Batman character appeared again in the video game Lego Dimensions that was released in September 2015. This game involves a crossover of different characters from different franchises such as Batman, The Wizard of Oz, Back to the Future, The Lego Movie etc.
The façade of the building features pink-and-teal 20th Century Art Deco-phase of styling with a large pink ‘DINER’ sign. Though Streamline Moderne style architecture first emerged in the 1930s this modular has a more 1950s-style color treatment than the general era of previous Modulars (~1930s). Other external features include arched linteled windows, balconies and a wrought iron-style exterior staircase and a detailed sidewalk, complete with mailbox, parking meter, flower pots and the iconic white streetlamp of the Modular collection. It’s the third Modular set to include a vehicle– this time a 1950’s-style convertible automobile recalling an homage to Elvis Presley’s pink Cadillacs. (One of the minifigures also features an Elvis-style of pompadour hairstyle.)
Going back to the #10232 LEGO Creator Palace Cinema, it is somewhere in the middle between the earliest LEGO Modular Buildings, with detailed exteriors, sparse interiors, and taller overall size, and the recent Modulars that are shorter, but are much more detailed on the inside and outside. The Palace Cinema looks great on the outside with colorful (and interchangeable!) posters and other details, but the inside could use a bit of extra decor. And, it is the only LEGO Modular Building with stickers (movie posters, signs, movie screen). It is also one of only three corner buildings, which makes it very useful to turn at the corner, or finish off a street. As you can see, there are some plusses and minuses to this set, but overall it is a well-liked Modular. Below, I have included the official description as well as a video-review, so you can see all the details. And if you want to purchase it, it’s available at the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Some of those sets that are getting retired are in the LEGO Creator Buildings series. We have discussed the sets many times (see the LEGO Modular Houses section) as they are very popular with teen and adult LEGO fans. The #10197 LEGO Creator Fire Brigade set was retired last year, and the #10211 LEGO Creator Grand Emporium is also now considered retired. You may still be able to find this set at official LEGO stores, however online it is shown as sold out.
Market Street (set number: 10190) was the second of the Modular Buildings series and designed by Dutch Lego fan Eric Brok.[5] It was originally released as a follow-up to Café Corner in 2007 and priced at MSRP of US$89.[6] The set contains 1236 pieces and is recommended for builders 10 years of age or older. It was one of the first leading buildings. The set features include opening doors and windows, a gate, a striped awning, and 3 minifigures.[7] Advanced construction techniques used in Market Street include: curved staircases, “stripped paint” sections on the walls, interchangeable floors,[8] Dutch/Belgian stepped roof,[3] a basement, offset windows, and wrought iron-look decoration and gate.[9]
One of the things we love about the Lego Creator Tower Bridge set is how it combines historical and real-world locations with the fun and excitement that comes with a Lego set. It isn’t cheap, but the Tower Bridge set, similar to the Assembly Square set above, feels great when you’re building it. When it comes to these Creator Expert sets, 4,000 pieces or more seems to be a great balance between scale and complexity, and the Tower Bridge set is no exception. With almost 4,300 pieces, including four vehicles and a completely working drawbridge, this is one of our favorite sets yet. The final set is gigantic, measuring over 40 inches long from start to finish. Needless to say, it might be a bit difficult to find space for this bridge among your collection once you’re complete. One note for those looking for something to do with the kids: these Expert sets don’t come with numbered bags, since part of the challenge of Lego sets is building it into a gigantic, puzzle-like kit. But if you can get over the hump of working without numbered bags, you’ll really enjoy assembling Tower Bridge. We’d love to see Lego branch out and do some additional work on London-themed sets, to build a miniature Lego London. Get on it, Lego!
As with most other Lego sets it is excellent quality and detail! Took my son about 5-6 days working a few hours each day to complete this set. (Yes, mostly on his own with supervision to make sure parts didn’t get put backwards, which means total rebuild) He Loves all things Lego! He was so proud when it was finished and showed everybody!! There is a lot to this set as it is very large and has lots of working details. Recommend to all Lego fans!!
The very reason people are scrambling to collect the sets after they have been retired is because they didn’t do so while they were in production, for any multitude of reasons. As an example, some of the Star Wars UCS sets — 10143 Death Star, for example — were discounted by LEGO for many months before they was discontinued. If the stock was really flying off the shelves, that wouldn’t have been the case.
Not to hijack the thread or anything, but Im wondering what everyone’s opinion is on putting these sets together piece by piece on bricklink. I’ve found that usually some of the more rare sets can be put together this way (if you dont care about the minifigs) at a reasonable cost. What do you think are the pros and cons of doing it this way?
In addition to that, the police bike, SUV and the two new vehicles make it very effective. One particular feature that we loved was the McCain figure present, it was happy to see that children really appreciated and recognized a great hero.
If you need a little break from science fiction-based Star Wars sets you can jump into an architectural project building the Taj Mahal. The $299 set gives you more bang for your buck than the Collector’s Millennium Falcon, boxing a total of 5,922 pieces (about 700 more than the Falcon). What also makes this set a bit more of a challenge for builders is that all the pieces are all generally the same color. This makes it especially difficult for those who like to dump all their Lego pieces into a pile rather than build bag-by-bag. Puzzle builders will attest to the difficulty of puzzles that don’t vary too much in color or patterns. The Lego model of the famous Taj Mahal palace in India was released in 2008.
This is a set to be coveted and one customer wrote, “The construction itself was not difficult (I am an adult), and the pieces in it are amazing. The jester heads and gold pieces alone make this set really fun. Add the power functions (this was my first power function set) and the music and it is unbelievable! The set is built so that when you turn on the motor and the carousel spins, the music will start by itself.”

I am excited about expanding my modular buildings collection and getting the Palace Cinema, which just came out, and I still have not gotten the LEGO Creator Pet Shop 10218 either, I am still sad I missed out on the Green Grocer.
While some do not consider it to be a true part of the modular buildings line, due to the fact that it was a fan created set, 10190 Market Street is an official LEGO set that interconnects with the other modular buildings in the series. With only 1248 pieces, it is the smallest modular building and this, combined with the fan created nature of the set, has led Market Street to be ignored by some collectors. Nonetheless, the rarity of this second entry in the modulars line has made it very valuable.
Probably the biggest and best kit you can get in the $50 dollar range (I vetted many options). Includes lots of interesting little specialty piece (ice saw, pic axe, etc). My 6 year old nephew would not stop until the entire kit was done. Entire assembly is probably 5 inches tall and 12 inches long or so.
The first sets were updated versions of the older sets. The new sets are not known as Lego Batman, but Lego DC Universe Super Heroes instead, because the new series features not just Batman characters, but also Superman, Aquaman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman characters. The Lego Super Heroes theme is due to expand in April 2012 with the Lego Marvel Super Heroes sub-theme.

The LEGO Architecture Skyline Collection opens a window to the most incredible cityscapes from around the globe. Choose between the heady heights of NYC, the neo-gothic grandeur of London, the show-stopping curves of Sydney, the romance of Venice, or the bold originality of Chicago.
Stafford considers the Galidor line to be Lego’s most heinous offense. Based on a kid’s show of the same name, the line was basically an action figure series with awkward features like interchangeable arms for characters. Each set in the line featured specialized pieces, which were expensive to produce and in practically no way resembled a Lego product.
So why does City/Friends/etc include minifigs? Because here you’re making up a story and the minifigs have a role. That’s why there are so many and why they have so many uniforms and clothing. It’s like directing your own movie. With City/Friends/etc you’re not the operator. No vehicle is remote controlled (apart froms trains, but they are borderline Technic), moving parts only move when you move them directly with your hand. You guide their lives, you help them, but you will not “be” them. In Technic models, you are in control. So Technic figure can’t be. So it wouldn’t sell as well if there were figures in the models.
Here is a great Lego instruction manual set.  I bought the set #7783 at a rummage sale, but it was missing some pieces, so I am selling the manuals # 1 and 2 by themselves.  Come s as shown, GREAT CONDITION.  I ship world wide.  I accept paypal email with any questions I combine shipping on all orders!!
Very small Lego kit. Seems pricey for what you get, but I understand that is Legos in general. Bought this as a birthday present and ended up having to purchase something else to go with it. Overall, a good gift or stocking stuffer for a Batman fan.
Then there are the seller fees on eBay . And the shipping costs – remember, Lego is bulky and could cost quite a bit to ship. And if you’re selling to a collector, they’ll expect it to arrive in good condition, so packing costs go up again.
It is fully ‘cafe corner compatible’.  The building yard can attach either side of the main building.  The top floor ‘under construction’ can be removed to reveal the interior which will then hinge open to allow play inside. The crane is an update and redesign of 7905-1 and is fully functional.

^^ Since Lego did tell us, which sets are going to retire “soon”, it seems they want to sell us their left over stock as fast as possible, creating an extra demand while still having lots of boxes. And with the last box sold, the set is retired. So there is no “date”, I guess. It had been the same with the Exo-Suit.
The famous Imperial Star Destroyer is by far an incredible vehicle and the Lego version is no different! It features 1367 pieces and a ton of minifigures like Darth Vader, Grand Moff Tarkin, Imperial Officer, two Stormtroopers, two Emperor’s Royal Guards, Imperial Astromech Droid, and Mouse Droid.

About the previous post I made.  You did mention that the Star Destroyer you typed about was the 6211 set, but that’s the small set, the picture you have is of the big star destroyer, which is an Ultimate Collector Series set.  That’s the over 3,000 piece set.  So I guess right description, just wrong picture.   =D
Judith, individual sellers could be getting their stock from various places. We do get regular sales on Dimensions sets – usually 50% off, sometimes more. Also, the dollar is pretty strong now compared to the pound, so there is that as well. I also shop from international sellers from time to time. European sellers usually have a much better stock on rare parts and colors. 🙂
Although this set is relatively expensive for the number of pieces contained within (compared to the Lego average), the pieces tend to be larger ones, and the unique figures certainly justify the additional cost. This is a fantastic set for kids who want to re-enact the movie scene or are otherwise looking for a play-heavy set (the construction is durable and will hold up to enthusiastic play), or for Star Wars fans who want to build this set for display. If you’re going to get one current non-ship Star Wars set, this should be it. Recommended for everyone who loves Star Wars and Lego, especially if you can get this set at a discount.

Nice catch. They have them in stock and no longer with the retiring soon label. Now that is very concerning. If there was one thing reliable, it was that when they said a set was retiring soon, it was. This just changes the game in a negative way. I don’t know the legality of such a thing – but this is getting close to an unfair business practice that may actually be illegal based on the public dissemination of misleading information.
So many new LEGO sets were released this month which have been keeping LEGO fans busy. I wanted to bring to your attention that if you are shopping online, a lot of the older LEGO sets just went on sale. So if you are buying some of the new sets but your total doesn’t meet the minimum for free shipping, you might consider taking a look at the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop. Please note that LEGO putting sets on sale means that these products are getting retired. Once they are gone they are gone. Below are some of the highlights. 🙂
➡ ONLINE LEGO SHOP SALES & DEALS: A number of the older LEGO Dimensions packs are on sale, but this is not particularly a new development. You can buy most LEGO Dimensions packs at about half price both directly from LEGO and at other retailers. What is more interesting is that several newly released larger sets are on sale as well, with 20% off the regular price. This includes the #21127 LEGO Minecraft The Fortress, the #70322 LEGO Nexo Knights Axl’s Tower Carrier, and the #41067 LEGO Disney Princess Belle’s Enchanted Castle. Other notable sets on sale are some of the LEGO Nexo Knights Ultimate Knight packs, and the #40203 LEGO Vampire and Bat Halloween set. Also, the #41068 LEGO Disney Princess Arendelle Castle Celebration, and the #41066 LEGO Disney Princess Anne & Kristoff’s Sleigh Adventure have been on sale for many months now. They are great sets, but it is possible that LEGO made too many of them and they are not selling fast enough. You can find all the discounted sets under the Sales and Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Ah, got it. FYI – the Market was introduced at the beginning of the year and the Fire Brigade was introduced in the middle of the year. I would be shocked if the Market was still on shelves in 6 months, but I could be wrong. – Nathan Stohlmann Jan 3 ’12 at 4:06

If they re-release sets that gained worth, that won’t do them a favor i think. Some sets i only bought because i hope they gain worth. If they start re-releasing everything good, i won’t do that anymore.
Used AT-TE. Missing four pieces (Three on the turret, one maroon 1/2 flat piece within the walker). Comes with the speeder bike but not the minifigs. Sticker is a bit torn but is simply due to old age…
Gemr is the leading platform for collectors to discover, display, discuss, and buy & sell collectibles. Sometimes our team gets chummy and decides to write a blog together. Or maybe someone wants to keep their identity a secret. Pick which option you like best and we’ll just say that’s correct.
So if you have any LEGO sets to sell you can contact Brian and his team and see what you can work out. I have also added a quick banner-link to the sidebar on the right (the bright-green box) to reach Brian’s LEGO buying page and regularly updated LEGO Buy List. This is a great resource you may want to take advantage of now or in the future when you need to move some of your LEGO collection.
Sometimes you may run into the issue with a piece that is just not convenient to get. Or it is possible that facing $3 per piece is bit hard to swallow. Thankfully there are a number of work-around solutions to problems like these. The first is finding if there is a part with a Matching ID (MID). If you go to the parts inventory of the set on BrickLink, parts with a MID have a mark in a column to the far right. This means that if you go to the very bottom of the inventory you can find parts that are slightly different (like they have hollow studs instead of filled or they have a few extra notches), but essentially they will look and act identical.
New for 2018, Lego 75200 Ahch-To Island Training. Will it be an invigorating shot for Lego Star Wars sets or just another poor performer. Brook will look back at the patterns from the the Force Awakens Lego sets and to see what the future holds.

This is a great Lego gift for Minecraft fans, though once assembled, it doesn’t have any moving parts (as most of the Lego City sets do, for example). It wasn’t too difficult to put together, but my 6-year-old, who has built many larger Lego sets, got bored with building it after not very long. It’s composed of lots and lots of tiny pieces, and for kids, anyway, I think the constructing of it is a bit tedious. I finished it for him – I actually enjoyed the tedium – and it sits on a shelf in a place of pride, but doesn’t get played with much because like I said, it doesn’t do anything. I would recommend for older fans of both Minecraft and Legos (maybe 8+?), but not for fans of only one or the other.

There are also two large LEGO Star Wars sets retiring soon. The #10236 LEGO Star Ewok Village (released in 2013), and the #75059 LEGO Star Wars Sandcrawler (released in 2014) have both been around for a while, so it makes sense that LEGO is retiring them, even though they are both excellent sets. The LEGO Star Wars Ewok Village, in particular, is a great set even for non-Star Wars fans, who would like to build a nice forest scene for elves, Na’vi, or Robin Hood and his merry band of outlaws. You can find both sets under the LEGO Star Wars section of the Online LEGO Shop.
If we’re going to talk about a collection of X-Wings, there isn’t any other set better that this one. The Red Five, Luke Skywalkers’ call sign during the Battle of Yavin (given to him due to the fact that the “old” Red Five dies during the Battle of Scarif in Rogue One). This ship is a thing of beauty.
One way to find value for money on eBay is to buy loose lots of bulk Lego. Zoom in on the photos on eBay to see if there are any pieces/sets/figures you can recognize, and be prepared to bid $10 a pound (or more) for the lot. (Non-Harry Potter Lego tends to go for around $5 a pound.) Sometimes, you might notice most of a set or several great figures amid a sea of random Legos. The question is, whether your child would want the bulk parts to build things from their imagination or only be interested in the exact sets with instructions. If you were so inclined, you could buy the large lots, remove the parts/mini-figure you really wanted and resell the rest on eBay. That’s rather time-consuming. (Although to be fair, searching eBay and the internet at large for discontinued Harry Potter Lego sets is a time-consuming process, if you want to find value for money.)
I strongly suspected the SHIELD Helicarrier would be retiring soon, so recently picked that up (and was my weekend build project). Now I have the dilemma of deciding whether to pick up an additional TIE and convert it to an Interceptor…
The Star Wars™ Red Five Starfighter™ set 10240 was rumored (and known) to have been retired for many months now. However, the (US) Lego Store did not show this set as “Retired Product” until just a few days before this Read more »

Also, remember that LEGO is offering Double VIP Points until the end of October. This is the best time to get large sets to maximize your VIP Points. There will be another Double VIP Points period in December, but by that time many of these retiring sets could be gone.
Yes, you can get lucky at thrift stores but you can really increase your chances by shopping Goodwill online!  I honestly don’t think you can get a better deal at buying used LEGO bricks anywhere else. For sure this beats many eBay offerings hands down.
The Millennium Falcon set comes in at the top of our list simply because it’s freaking awesome.  It is among the two or three most recognizable images from the entire Star Wars franchise, so it easily checks the nostalgia box.  The set is huge at 1329 pieces and takes a few hours to complete.  Inside the box you get the awesome Falcon itself, complete with the iconic holochess board, cockpit, and even spring loaded blasters.  Additionally, you get a wealth of minifigurines including Han Solo, Chewbacca, Rey, Finn, and BB-8 (you get two more, but who cares about those guys?).  The minor complaint here is that this is The Force Awakens version, so you get old Han, rather than A New Hope Han.  That’s easy enough to ignore, however, with the all-around spectacular set included here.
More of an architectural marvel than an actual play-thing, the Empire’s second attempt at creating a planet-annihilator makes for a rather functional Lego set. Packaged with a display stand, this one is for the artistically minded collectors out there.

Sometimes small and simple can be good things.  This set is very basic, consisting of 282 pieces, many of which are minifigurines and Droids.  The set replicates the scene in Revenge of the Sith where Anakin is transformed into Vader.  The Emperor is included as a minifigurine along with Anakin, Vader, and two Droids.  This is a quick build, but the payoff is fantastic.  Getting to lower Anakin and flip the table over to reveal Vader is an incredibly simple, but fun moment to experience in the Lego world (manually adding his helmet extreme slow motion is totally optional, but highly recommended).  What this set lacks in size and depth it more than makes up for in fun and cool accessories.  
Darth Vader’s personal flagship and the Imperial command centre in The Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, the Super Star Destroyer is quite the spectacle in Lego form. The hilariously diddy Star Destroyer that comes in the box shows off how grandiose this gargantuan, 3,152-piece ship really is.

2002 saw the release of Episode II and with it the first eight sets from the film, including a much bigger Slave I featuring the new Jango Fett color scheme (#7153), the Republic Gunship (#7163), and for the first time, Yoda as a minifigure in “Jedi Duel with Count Dooku” (#7103), and also as a much larger UCS set of Yoda (#7194) standing 14” high. A total of 25 sets were released in 2002 and these also included the first MINI vehicle delivered in a polybag rather than a box, a TIE Fighter (#3219). Technic versions of Darth Vader (#8010), Jango Fett (#8011), Super Battle Droid (#8012), and R2-D2/C-3PO Droid Collectors Set (#65081) were also released along with UCS versions of the Naboo Starfighter which featured chrome elements (#10026) and the Imperial Star Destroyer (#10030), which became the largest LEGO Star Wars set available, with 3,096 pieces. The Republic Gunship, released in 2002, is the only set to feature blue Super Battle Droids and commands a high after sale price — as do most retired LEGO Star Wars sets. The 1999 version of the X-wing Fighter was re-released in 2002 as set #7142; also the first LEGO Star Wars pens were introduced (not included in set counts).
Above all, make sure the listing states that the lot is 99% or 100% genuine Lego Brand.  If they didn’t state that in their description, then take the time to e-mail them to ask.  It is definitely worth it!

Once upon a time, I bought a HUGE bin of used LEGOs for just $25 dollars.  It must have been over 15 lbs. I was so happy.  It was disgustingly dirty though… I had to wash them three times in my tub. The previous owner had a cat and I’m allergic.  That was hard.

You can also buy individual Lego pieces direct from the Lego.com. The selection is much less complete than Bricklink, but you can buy in bulk whereas sellers on Bricklink often have only one or two of each brick. You will not find specific Harry Potter mini-figures or “Hogwarts” pieces there, but you should be able to find many of the pieces you need to complete Harry Potter sets, and in the correct colors. The same might be the case if you live close to a Lego store (we don’t, so I can’t pop in and see what they have). Shipping from the Lego online store tends to be more expensive than BrickLink, so if you are only looking for a few parts bear that in mind. I got bulk quantities of windows, tan bricks, doors, and other various parts that look like they belong in the Hogwarts castle, and the shiping is much more reasonable once you’re ordering a larger amount of bricks. They often have special offers or free gifts with purchase, so you can find great value or get some exclusive bricks by ordering direct.
Let me add one tip to your “Working around problem parts” paragraph that I learned way to late in the process : systematically download the instructions so that, when a hard-to-find-part related problem arises, you can locate in the instructions where the part is used, so you decide if you work around it or not.
LEGO STAR WARS Millenium Falcon 7965 *Brand new sealed* This is an awesome set. Has been discontinued for a while so very hard to find these days. This is brand new un-opened MISB. Perfect for a gift for the star wars fan as it is still sealed and⁄or for the serious collector as the box is in excellent condition also. It was released available direct from Lego back 2011. This is a very cool classic set ~1250 pieces with 6 minifigures and super impressive large set when built. Lego descr

I was checking out the online LEGO shop today and noticed several sets that were marked retiring soon and was quite surprised. Specifically the Rebel Combat Frigate and Doctor Strange’s Sanctum Sanctorum which both came out in August 2016.
eBay determines trending price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. “New” refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and “Used” refers to an item that has been used previously.
Now I know I said the project can move forward, however I like to do one more step just so there are no unpleasant surprises. This step involves taking a look at the parts in a set. For this I use the BrickLink. I click Catalog at the BrickLink website and then find the set by either browsing the categories or entering the set number in the search box. Once I find its page, I click on the View Inventory link. Seeing all the parts in the set laid out on one page lets me look for expensive and/or unusual elements. There are no prices immediately listed on this page and I doubt anyone wants to click through and see prices for each part, but I look for three main criteria: rare part design, rare part color, and large quantity.

However, many of the sellers are overseas, so the shipping and exchange rates can kill any price savings versus eBay. For comparison terms, I’ve seen a popular set like The Burrow go for up to $250 on eBay and around $110 on Bricklink. You can filter your Bricklink search by country, which helps to find the best combination of price and shipping costs. [Note: prices may have changed since this blog was posted.]
While some do not consider it to be a true part of the modular buildings line, due to the fact that it was a fan created set, 10190 Market Street is an official LEGO set that interconnects with the other modular buildings in the series. With only 1248 pieces, it is the smallest modular building and this, combined with the fan created nature of the set, has led Market Street to be ignored by some collectors. Nonetheless, the rarity of this second entry in the modulars line has made it very valuable.
I remember buying a 386 Ambulance Helicopter set back in the 1970s… only because it had 2 45 degree white concave corner slopes. Then over 30 years later these same parts were reintroduced in the Shrieking Shack Harry Potter Set.
Either way, both of these sets are great and you can’t go wrong with either, however, based on the secondary market premium, you may be better off going with the newer version rather than trying to find this original set for a reasonable price.
Downtown Diner (set number: 10260) is the thirteenth set in the Modular Building line. It was released on 1 January, 2018 and contain 2,480 pieces with a MSRP of US$169/149€. This building reintroduces the teal color (what LEGO calls Bright Blueish Green) that hadn’t been in production since 2008. The first level of this building is a 1950s-style diner. It has a curved front window, red bar stools, a classic bubbler-style jukebox, soda fountain-equipped counter, and an open-plan kitchen.
Lego’s Duplo line is intended for children 1-5 years old and has been around since 1975 (barring a couple brief absences). The Primo offshoot was intended for babies too young to even play with regular Duplo bricks. And unlike Duplo pieces, they were not compatible with regular Lego pieces. Primo was succeeded by Lego Baby, which was phased out in 2005. The niche market was simply not profitable for the company.
Modular Buildings is a series of Lego building toy sets introduced in 2007. Created in response to feedback and suggestions from the Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL), and the Teen Fans of Lego (TFOL) community, the sets in this series are generally intended for more advanced builders with most sets containing more than 2,000 total pieces and making use of unorthodox building techniques which have not been tried before in official Lego sets. In contrast to most LEGO sets which are aimed at children and adolescents, the suggested age of most sets in the Modular Buildings series is 16 years or older. The Modular Buildings sets have been received with positive reviews, being considered by Lego designers and fans as “toys for adults”.
The creator series Big Ben is an unimaginably accurate model that will take multiple days to complete. The set has been designed and scaled to pair with Lego’s Tower Bridge, so you may continue the fun after you have completed the build.
Cute set. Took a short time to build. Love the colors! 2 cool little mini figures with lots of great diving accessories.Bonus: The boat floats! Definitely one to buy for the kiddies or to add to your collection.
A sequel to the first Lego Batman called Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released in 2012 and included other DC Comics characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, most of them appearing towards the end of the story.
As such, the only things that truly make a specific Lego set for adults is the complexity of the set and the likelihood that an adult will be properly engaged through playing with it. While many adults choose to play with only challenging Lego sets; others will buy sets simply because they enjoy the theme, regardless of the skill level involved in the undertaking.
I’ve just asked Lego Direct about it, while on the phone to them placing an order, and I spoke to a most apologetic man, who said that he had no idea when sets were retired, but Exclusives were normally 3 years and normal sets 2. I don’t know if you just got lucky with who you spoke to on the phone @winter_zombie, or maybe they were wildly speculating. He said the Death Star had been around for ages and was still going strong which would imply that he hasn’t heard of it going anytime soon. I have to admit I was hoping that the DS and EN would be included in the sale, but no luck…

After this realization I debated getting the Grand Emporium and Fire Brigade, and decided not to because it will be very difficult to muster 6+ bills to get each of the original two sets(I will most definitely at some point need all the Modular sets). Well now that the pet shop is released I’m afraid on of the others will be discontinued the prices will sky rocket as their predecessors have, making it even more difficult to collect the modular buildings at a later date.
As a fan, however, it’s very difficult to tell how well a LEGO set sells for the company. Just because the aftermarket cost is high doesn’t necessarily mean that there are a LOT of people still demanding a set for the MSRP.
“With the soar in popularity of Lego with both adults and children, the effect on the values of both rare, hard to find sets and new releases has been incredible,” said Bev Channell, event director for Lego event BRICK 2015, running at Birmingham’s NEC this week.
I bought this LEGO Ultimate Building Set with 405 Pieces in it for my son for Christmas. He is a Lego lover extraordinaire and little Mr. Creative. This set is just the right size for any possibility you could think of. It allows for great imagination as it is lots of basic pieces. He loved the fact that it has its own plastic box with a lid to store his Legos in. There is also room for lots of extra parts and pieces. This also included a base plate, windows, doors, and wheels. A great value for either a beginner builder or for the one who has everything as you can never ever have too many Legos.
Item for sale is as per the above. Very Good Condition.The set has been built and displayed in a cabinet, NOT played with. The manual is in very good condition. All characters are present and most sti…

#10251 LEGO Creator Brick Bank – released in 2016 – this is the smallest, weakest and least talked about set from the current line-up, so perhaps it might get retired earlier than the usual four-year run. It is still very nice though, especially on the inside, and it one of only three corner buildings.

The tenth modular building emerged in January 2015 in the form of 10246 Detective’s Office. Comprised of a pool hall, detective’s office, and barber shop, this set features an entire backstory based around ‘cookie smuggling’.
OK what makes this set special is basically the Servo Motor – this is the first and only (current) set to have this, what it means is once built you have a decent RC vehicle that WORKS via wireless infrared remote – the Servo Motor allows steering via the remote… so you CAN take it rock crawling, just be a little careful – it isn’t a “proper” RC vehicle (with tough prop shafts and axles)
My son has spatial dyslexia and enjoys building with legos. He really likes to get the sets, but I find that I do most of the building and he does most of the fretting because he can’t see what he needs to do.
Lego collectors and enthusiasts just can’t wait to get their hands on the next most expensive Lego sets and pieces. The one-of-a-kind platinum Avohkii mask of Light from the discontinued Lego Bionicle line is believed to be the most expensive Lego piece ever sold, selling for a whopping $15,000 in 2012, according to Press Democrat. Lego collectors are imaginative, inventive people who are fascinated by building and creating masterpieces from the best Lego sets they can find. So, are you a Lego collector on the hunt for the next best Lego set? Well, we’ve done the research for you and have listed the 7 Most Expensive Lego Sets available today:
We built this set as a joint project, and it’s such a cool LEGO set. You can see in all of the windows, so it really has a great deal of dimension. However, this was also the very first LEGO set we have ever purchased that was missing pieces! We are still waiting for LEGO to respond to our inquiry about how to get what was not in the box so we can finish the complete structure.
Modular Revival is just getting started, so you can expect a few things to change over the coming months as we plan to roll out these exclusive sets and who knows, maybe you’ll see other themes be implemented into the Revival series.

Over the holidays, my niece got a larger Friends LEGO set and I helped her put it together (it had around 1200 pieces!). I was once again bitten by the LEGO bug. I hadn’t played with LEGO’s for nearly 20 years but now I had to! I looked around LEGO’s website to see what kinds of sets were available – I had seen all the movie sets and what not already in the stores, but wanted something more interesting… Saw these Creator sets and I just had to have them. I ended up getting the 4 that are currently available (Town Hall, Pet Shop, Fire Brigade & Grand Emporium). Too bad the other 2/3 are valued so highly and cost around $1000 each (too rich for my pockets!) but I am looking forward to the Chinese Theatre that will be coming out sometime this year. I wish they made more than 1 of these each year! This set took me about 5-6 hours to complete and it is magnificent! I did a time lapse photo shoot of it as well (which may have increased my build time a little). I’ve completed 3 out the 4 sets I’ve purchased and they are some of the best looking sets I’ve seen and truly had a blast putting them together. One the best parts about these buildings is that they are designed to be connected together to make a street out of them. Can’t wait to get more LEGO sets to build in the future.

“shopping lego review +lego sites to shop cheap”

@yys4u: I understand the desire to be complete, but if cost is really an issue, I would suggest doing as colethegeek says: buy the current ones at the more reasonable retail price, since they’ll be enough for an impressive street scene. After that, if you still desire the out of print sets, you can begin on those, and hopefully your financial situation is improved. Also, I would focus on getting Cafe Corner and Green Grocer and pass on Market Street.
Now, I generally buy LEGO not as an investment but because I like it. That said, I do like getting a good value for my money. With regards to Modular Buildings, these truly are a good value to buy on the primary market (i.e. normal retail of current sets, not Bricklink, Ebay, or the likes), as an enthusiast and as an investor. The models are beautiful and they impress AFOLs and the general public alike. They are filled with interesting building techniques and cute details. They are very satisfying to build. As a set, they merit being valued highly. Now, to add icing on the cake, if you look at the parts that make the whole, you then see the real steal that Modular Building are. With US prices, the building tend to be under 7 cents per piece. Compare that to the price per piece on your favorite sets. We’re on the low end here. I don’t see sets going for less than 6 cents per piece and often times they go for 10 or 11 cents. Your bucket of bricks tends to be at the 7 cent level, but a bucket of bricks doesn’t have as a nice part selection as the modular houses do. So even if you were to buy the sets for new bricks, throwing away all the packaging and instructions and parting the whole thing out for MOCs, I still think it would be a good value.
Also, I’m guessing that parting each set out would be significantly cheaper than paying the new/used prices for the full set? Any other thoughts you have on how to collect the retired modulars for as cheap as possible would be great!
3) If possible, use gurobi [1] (The overall fastest and best supported solver available) to solve the optimization problem of finding the least number of stores with the lowest prices for all the parts you need. Without gurobi you’ll have to do a greedy approach (more expensive) or brute force (takes forever) method to solve the optimization problem.
So like mentioned above, if you want Lego to keep making sets then keep buying loads of them… But usually most runs go for about 2-3 years before being discontinued (unless it is specifically for a retail outlet (like the Helicopter and limo sets for walmart) then I am guessing it is as many as that store wants to buy and make and lego maybe matches that, who knows

The asylum is over 12” tall and 13” wide, and has opening cell doors, a special Poison Ivy cell with transparent doors, a Mr. Freeze ‘icy tower’ room, Dr. Harleen Quinzel’s office and changing room, a medical treatment room and a security reception area, while the security gate has opening double doors and a security camera. There’s a security van, too, with opening back doors, a removable roof, and a stretcher. That’s a whole lot of awesome stuff all packed into one set (number 10937), and it can still be found on Amazon for $299 .
Time will tell, but I’m particularly skeptical that we’ll see 10193 Medieval Market Village last through the end of 2012, as it’s already marked as “discontinued from the manufacturer” on Amazon. If Toys R Us — which recently sold out during their sale –doesn’t replenish it’s stock, that will be further indication that the end is near.
Haha, lord Business’ basement is kinda what’s giving me the itch to get them. I have a large empty basement that has other hobby things such as RC planes and RC cars. I also have a model railroad, and although the scale would be off, I am wanting to build a city made of LEGO and run the train through it. My son would absolutely love that.
If you haven’t checked out Lego sets since you were a kid, you might be pleased to know they just aren’t for children anymore. Just like puzzle sets, there are a ton of Lego sets that are created and reproduced for a teenage or adult audience, those capable of handling the small details and thousands of pieces included in each set. These aren’t small, hundred-piece sets: they’re incredibly challenging, with long manuals and tons of pieces. Some are incredibly difficult to build without the focus and attention that comes with adulthood, while others include pneumatics and other moving parts that are challenging to children to create and enable. Some of them are even themed to suit adults, those of us who have interests in cars or architecture.
The Bat-Signal’s light brick is illuminated so team up with Batman, Robin, Batgirl and Alfred Pennyworth (in Batsuit) to save the day!

Fire the Batmobile’s 4 stud shooters and the Bat-Tank’s 2 hidden 6-stud rapid shooters! Speed through the Gotham City streets on the Batcycle and attack Polka-Dot Man’s flying disc with the Batwing’s 2 spring-loaded shooters. Those shocked Super-Villains won’t know what’s hit them!

This LEGO Creator incarnation of London’s Tower Bridge is an absolute beauty. And with it’s 4,287 pieces and moving parts (the bottom bit of the bridge opens up, of course), it’s definitely not a walk in the park. It does come with a cute little London bus, though, and promises one hell of a sense of achievement to any who manage to master it.

When a port is “open”, that means it is like an open tire valve; all the air will leak out as fast as it can. When a port is closed, no air can enter or leave that port. When ports are connected, air will freely travel through the valve between those two ports.
TECHNIC Figures are figures that appeared in TECHNIC sets, especially from the CyberSlam/Competition line. They were first introduced in 1986 in the Arctic Action line, and were produced until 2001. They are much larger and have several more joints than the standard minifigure, including bendable elbow and knee-joints. Each figure comes already assembled and is not meant to come apart, but parts can be popped off by pulling too hard. They can connect to both standard LEGO System bricks and on TECHNIC parts, and TECHNIC pegs can fit in their hands. 27 different kinds of Technic figures were created,[6] some sets included the same figures but with different accessories and stickers.
Also, I’m still holding out hope that years from now, LEGO will re-release the retired sets (they’ve done that will other themes). Even though that may mean, the sets that I own will be devalued, I wouldn’t want to deprive others of this wonderful building experience.
Here’s another gem from the LEGO Creator line: A beautiful Taj Mahal build, which consists of a whopping 5,922 pieces. It’s designed for expert builders, and it measures up at 41cm tall by 51cm wide. As an added bonus, a lot of the bricks are unique to this kit, created just to bring this Indian icon to life in the best way possible.
It’s still a lot of work though, and you have to be careful of prices. Like Puripnon said, the vast majority of pieces are relatively affordable. However, there are some pieces that cost a lot due to being out of production or what not. You will still save quite a bit of money than you would have if you had just bought the set outright.
Nice, a crawlspace for those of you making your “John Wayne Gacy setup”. Ok, a bit tasteless, I know. But seriously I love these buildings! I collect sets that will display well as I do not interact with them other than to admire details. I just finished the fire brigade and soon will be starting my grand emporium thats sitting in my closet. I missed the first three but I think I will definitely go after the green grocer for sure. I really wish I would have come out of my dark ages maybe a year or two earlier as I missed alot of the Star wars ucs sets, the first of these and the taj majal and carousel. Oh well, heres to the future sets that I will not miss again.
