And for the post above @mrdoofa – happens everywhere – diecast, art, real cars, action figures, etc. I’m pretty sure it doesn’t bother Lego – If buyers are willing spend money on old retired items, the same buyers will also spend money on new releases. I bought an Extra Town Hall when it was going EOL. Am I a bad person? I don’t think so. The profit when I decide to sell buys more Lego I want, which is good for TLG.. You can do the exact same…..
Hopefully this overview will get you organized enough to start on that dream LEGO set you never thought would be possible to get. It can be a long road to see the fruits of your work, but when all is done you have the added accomplishment of knowing how much work went into the project. To date I’ve assembled two LEGO Modular Buildings I missed out on when they were originally released, and I’m currently working on a third. I’ve also completed a handful of old LEGO Castle sets.
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….
When movie audiences saw it for the first time in Marvel’s The Avengers back in 2012, the airborne SHIELD Helicarrier was a thing of beauty, a remarkably feasible-looking design of how a flying aircraft carrier would look like built in our world. Since then, the wondrous flying vessels would figure in two more MCU movies (and cameo unnamed in Fox’s “Deadpool”). read more

The Lego community needs a company to track theme and set popularity like They do for network tv. Then we could have a bubble watch for themes or sets that are hovering on the abyss of discontinuation. :o)
The next resource I found is http://retiringsets.com/, just from a google search I did one day. It seems decent for gathering information on retiring sets from different country Lego stores, plus including their own thoughts based on past history. (Like with the Pet Shop expected to be retiring soon)

This is Lego’s second Creator structure for 2013. The first was #31009 which is less expensive, but probably not as much fun. The third structure is #31012 which I also like very much but it is substantially more expensive at 69.99 MSRP. I also recommend #5766 which came out in 2011, is a favorite with kids, and is still available as I write this.
LEGO is doing some pretty major summer clearance right now at the Online LEGO Shop, including some very nice medium to large sets that are getting retired. Below I will highlight some of the most noteworthy ones, and you can check out the rest at the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop. Please note that once stock is out on retiring soon sets, LEGO won’t be making any more, so make sure you don’t miss out. 🙂
But while they are great for specific parts, you should only use this service for a few rare parts you can’t find anywhere else. In my experience BrickLink prices are usually 30-50% below the offical Lego prices, or even more for very common pieces.

My 6YO loves Lego. We were buying small sets, but my husband found that he could buy a box of random parts on Ebay for much cheaper. He bought a set that had…I forget, but I think 1000 pieces, for $50 this fall. I’ll check with him, but I think it was that, or maybe 500 pieces. It seemed like a good deal. It’s very random, but my son loved it. That’s my only tip so far. I’ve looked on Craigslist, but with no luck. I’ve never seen them at thrift stores, but I’ll keep my eyes open for them. Thanks.
As much I’d like those three there are several other Direct To Consumer (D2C) sets that are higher on my list, therefore all three of them are a pass. If I was to chose one it would be 75059 – Sandcrawler.
Our whole family is so excited about Lego’s Creator line. Our very advanced 6 year old loves to build Legos however the really cool ones that keep him interested are still too advanced for him. Our second problem is that once they are built they are just dust collectors. NOT THIS ONE. He was able to build it with minimal help and he can actually play with it too! There are lots of cool real working features like the tree house pulley We can’t wait to add more creator pieces to our collection.
Lego discontinues sets for a lot of different reasons… Mostly because of demand for parts I am sure, they cannot thin out their lines to keep 1000 more sets in production, plus sets get old, they do.. most people buy one and they want to see the next one out.. therefore if they were to make more of them then no one would buy.. and no, only selling 3 sets to people over 1 year is not their idea of good sales…. Then they would need to list a lot of their warehouse for 50% off.. again not something they want to do…. I mean look at the steamrollers and pig farms, which would not die… I think the biggest reason is to keep the lines fresh.. not to mention sets can come back at times (see the Metroliner, Main street, Black Falcons Fortress and Guarded Inn and recently the Maersk Container ship).
From her crown to her torch, The Statue of Liberty is an iconic monument and symbol of freedom from tyranny, financial hardship, and suffering for many immigrants since the late 1800’s. She was given to the United States by France on October 28, 1886 as a gift for the centennial of the American Declaration of Independence.
^^ 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.
If this fails you can consider your own swap options. This may include using smaller pieces in the case of replacing a large brick or using a more modern window that looks very similar and will only be noticed by those who are intimate with the set. Finally, you may try changing the color. The option of changing the color is a big one. If you are considering doing it, you want to look at all the other elements in the set that share that color. For example, I had the option of using sand-blue instead of sand-green in the #10185 LEGO Modular Green Grocer. It would have definitely been cheaper in certain areas, but there were pieces made in sand-green that weren’t made in sand-blue, so it became a less attractive option. Keep in mind that a full replacement is not always necessary. A good builder can fit in color-swaps very subtly. You will ultimately need to be the judge of how complete or modified the end model needs to be.

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.

Thanks to Sharon’s advice, years ago I bought the girls a large pink brick box on Christmas sale. The brick box contains starter pieces for building that can be combined in a number of ways. It doesn’t lock the child into building one particular thing, like the Shelob Attacks set that one of them had requested.

I would love if LEGO would make that Minas Tirith into a set. It is beautiful, not too big, not too small – just right. I’m not sure how they will handle it though that the films are going to be over. It could be a very nice final set though for the theme.

Thankfully, I anticipated the Pet Shop’s retirement and bought it this month for my little sister’s Christmas present – after almost six years on her wish-list. I’m surprised by the Ideas sets and the Sandcrawler though.
Despite my earlier hesitations, the tinkling sound of Lego pieces being sorted and scooped is a happy sound to me, a remembrance of hours and hours of intense, creative play by my sons. And now my youngest daughter.

This item may have minor scuff marks on it, but still looks very good. WARNING – LEGO pieces are intended and rated for children 5 years and up. Be advised that LEGO parts should not be swallowed as it can present a choking hazard.
Those magazines are available for free directly from LEGO, so they don’t have much value. They sell for less than a dollar on eBay. An other problem with a collection of magazine is that they are very heavy to ship, thus expensive. You would be better off listing them on Craiglist to see if there is anyone locally who is interested, or just donate them to your local library. Kids would appreciate them. 🙂

LEGO enchants many kids but not every kid. There might be someone willing to sell it to you or just give it to you if you just start a discussion in your online parenting groups about how you would like to buy affordable LEGOs.  If you are looking to give it to a classroom or community center, mention that in your query.    You never know… For us, we’ve seen a lot of generosity from fellow New Yorkers.  I’m so grateful.
For the Lego collectors who love Batman, this set is to die for because it includes more than figurines and vehicles. This set also comes with Batman’s high-tech Bat Cave features control center, prison cell, and rocket and net launcher as well as other working gadgets like the costume transformation chamber.
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!
To be honest, I don’t really pay attention to the “Retiring Soon” label. With the Chima example, LEGO LEGO Shop at Home hasn’t made be trust the tag. Sure, it could be a sign of retirement, but if LEGO Shop at Home goes around and changes it on us, it makes me think that it isn’t reliable.
I’m a big lego fan and really like this castle. The only problem with it really is that the Gate section falls apart easily, which is a pain because it takes a long time to build. I added some solid bricks on the inside of the gate walls and that helped give it more stability. The kids in my 5 – 7 year old classroom loved it, as does my daughter.
I disappeared into the Harry Potter Lego Internet rabbit hole and here are a few of the places I’ve found to buy discontinued Harry Potter Lego sets, or even used Lego pieces — all without breaking the bank.
We all know one proven way to invest in LEGO bricks is to look for big sales and great deals on LEGO sets that are still currently available at retail, then flip them several year later for a profit. Another great way to invest in LEGO bricks is to scour eBay and look for older and retired sets that are still having positive gains month after month and do the same thing. The trick is finding those older and retired sets without too much trouble. Here is our solution. Below is a list of the Top Performing “Old and Retired” LEGO sets over the past six months. All 50 LEGO sets on the list have been produced in 2008 or earlier. When displaying the sets from the USA eBay listings, there is a 20% range added to the current market value. For all other country feeds, the high price range is twice the current value and the low price range is half of the current value. When testing, this was returning some decent results. Our goal here is to help find these top performing sets that are still consistently increasing in value and showing you current eBay listings within a close price range of it’s current market value. It is our wish that you utilize this data to diversify your Brickfoilio and to help you find some hidden gems that will make you some money in the secondary LEGO market.
Separate the pieces. Detach all pieces from each other unless they are stuck by grime. Set aside all pieces with stickers, printed ink, moving parts, electrical parts, or clear plastic. These must be scrubbed with a dry towel or alcohol wipes to avoid damage from the tumbling.

Twenty-two years after Star Wars was released, LEGO and Lucasfilm worked together to produce products in time for the release of Episode I in May 1999. The first sets were released under the LEGO System brand and consisted of eight sets from Episode I and five sets (13 in total) from the original trilogy films, including the first LEGO Star Wars X-wing (#7140) and Snowspeeder (#7130). Both of these sets have been revisited again many times in minifigure scale, MINI or even Ultimate Collectors Series (UCS) form — each new release bringing new features, new minifigures and new colored bricks and pieces too.

As for how we judge sets ourselves, we tend to break it down into two categories:  the build and the components.  We’re like any other Lego enthusiast, we love the build.  It needs to be challenging and engaging, not something that can be pieced together without instructions.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be a huge set, there is often a lot of fun to be had in smaller sets, but the build needs to grab our attention.  Most of those on our list end up being on the longer side for builds, as it’s the nature of the build that sets with more detailed builds will end up more engaging for us.

We can almost hear the imperial march playing when we see this incredible ship. The Star Destroyer UCS is Lego’s first set to contain over 3,000 pieces and at three feet long, this build is designed to make you feel as helpless as the tiny in scale Blockade Runner it comes with. This was the treatment Lord Vader’s personal flagship deserved. Dangerous and disturbing, this set is fit for the dark side of your collection. Originally released in 2002 for $299.99, the retired set goes for over $2,500.
Once I have several shop pages open (for rare parts it should be no more than 1-5), I select to show all items each store has from my wanted list, then compare what they have and their prices. I will do this in part to get the best deal and to fulfill a good portion of my wanted list, and also to get over the seller’s minimum order value (if they have one). This allows me to pay a few cents more on a common element while saving dollars on a truly rare one.

“These items are very expensive,” Maciorowski says. “They are not a $4 Beanie Baby that even a 10-year-old kid can buy with his weekly allowance money. While there have been a few worthy investments that retailed for $24.99, most investable Lego sets start at $70 and are often more expensive than that. Many of the top performers retail at $199.99 and higher, which eliminates a majority of (prepubescent) would-be investors who would dilute the market. Another reason Legos tend to go up in value is the way Lego runs its business. Namely, it doesn’t overproduce its sets. It’s true that popular sets may stay on retail shelves longer, but Lego doesn’t produce millions upon millions of its most desirable toys. Like Beanie Babies did.
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.

A special should be noted about substituting inner foundational pieces. Rare pieces go right out the window when it comes to these. Many times the designers add these to give fans unique pieces to play with, but if they are never seen then you’ll spend a lot for very little return.
Want to save money? Get your kids to create and SELL their LEGO beauties like this couch as explained on Lego.com’s design pages. Show them how to make a profit of their hard work but be wary, they will likely become more addicted. 
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. 
I gave this to my nephew yesterday for Christmas and he loved it. Right away we started to play with it. It has so many pieces and details that we only got to build 3 sets between us two.

Our first entry from Rogue One, Krennic’s shuttle offers a fun build of the Imperial starship belonging to the most hated character in the great Rogue One movie.  Along with a great Krennic minifiguring, you get a K-2S0 droid, two Imperial Death Troopers, Pao, and Bodhi Rook.  The attention to detail on the minifigurines is great, the K-2S0 is a personal favorite.  Our favorite part about this build is that is just looks cool.  The design is a sleek, black pyramid shape which makes it stand out even among some iconic Star Wars startships.  Being able to move the massive wings is a joy.  The ship comes with a couple of spring loaded blasters which are always a plus in our book.  The build for this set isn’t terribly long, but remains fun.  Krennic’s shuttle might not be canon in the Star Wars universe, but this is a great set and worth checking out.

Take lots of good photos. Spread your LEGO pieces out on the floor or on a tabletop and take a picture of the whole lot. If you have sorted out minifigures or other pieces, take close-up photos of them. Take overlapping close-up photos of the spread-out lot. Some things to avoid in your photos are:
Pantenkind, I do not think that the UCS would be anywhere near as popular right now if it HADN’T been discontinued. Part of it’s appeal now is that you cant just go and buy it and that the longer you leave it the more expensive it may get.

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.

Force Friday II is right around the corner, and with it will come a barrage of new Star Wars merch to hype us up for The Last Jedi. We don’t really need to be hyped up for the next film in the Star Wars saga, but if there has been one thing synonymous with the franchise it’s merchandising.

LEGO Star Wars celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and some of my next few Collecting the Galaxy blog posts will be devoted to looking back at the history of the mashup franchise. In the first of these LEGO Star Wars-inspired blogs we look at the period between 1999 and 2005, which takes in the releases of the prequels and the first original trilogy sets, too.
Conclusion: If you can get it for MSRP of $34.99, it’s a buy. I wouldn’t suggest paying collectible prices, as LEGO will undoubtedly be producing more of these, and will probably create different Minecraft sets in the near future. At least I hope they do. I would love to add more modules to this set, and I’ll be interested to see tiny zombies, skeletons, and mob animals.
My Uncle Pat, about 12 years my senior, gave me his original Lego set. (He regrets that now. Imagine what THAT would go for on eBay!) I think we only had a handful of colors, too, but those little plastic bricks provided hours of creative entertainment.

The interest has not waned in our home. My older boys invest in discontinued sets and have successfully sold for profit on eBay. (In case you didn’t know, investing in Lego is more profitable than buying gold.) While we were watching Ghostbusters the other night, FishChick9 pointed out the new Lego Ghostbusters set. Sister, I am not spending hundreds of dollars on one Lego set. 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. Now that the LEGO set is picked out and you have the instructions, the next step is to do a bit of research. Start by finding out what the going rate for the set is on the secondary market. My personal go-tos are BrickLink and eBay. The price-guide on these websites will give you a gauge that you can use to decide which makes more sense: buy the set as a whole, or piece it together yourself. For example, I wanted to build the #10185 LEGO Modular Green Grocer that has been retired years ago. The piece-count for this sets is 2352 pieces, and the price back in 2008 was $150. Now on the secondary market I found the lowest prices around the mid $700s with a good majority at the $800 mark – this is for used sets. New condition sets go well over a $1,000. I felt there was plenty of room to find some savings. Why would LEGO discontinue sets that are still insanely popular? Example being the UCS Millenium Falcon. It would obviously still sell, look at the prices it is commanding online now. Seems to me LEGO is giving up profits. I know some people buy sets hoping the price will rise, and that is all well and good, but some of us just really enjoy assembling, displaying and looking at our collections. I am like a few others in here that have an entire room devoted to LEGO. I have sets I could sell but honestly I probably never will. I find myself alot just sitting there looking around at my sets and honestly it really relaxes me. Same with building. I am married and have 5 daughters.....yes....DAUGHTERS and when I am building I can just focus on that and ignore the chaos around me. It is very theraputic. Anyways, I got a little side tracked, as far as my original question does anyone know why LEGO would intentionally stop the most popular sets, and what are your opinions about this? Also, and I know no one can know for sure, but what do you think the chances are that they would ever re-release the UCS sets? I also like to create a completely new Wanted List for each project and leave my default main Wanted List open for miscellaneous wants. Once the list is populated, you may want to take a moment to compare the list to the set’s inventory page. When I put together my Wanted List for the #10195 LEGO Modular Market Street, to my surprise, a few parts were left off because they had a MID (Matching Part ID). Turns out that in this instance the system did not know which part to add, so it did not add either. For those who are confused, you are not alone. MID parts are parts that look and act exactly how you might need them in a set. There are small differences, but nothing that matters when it comes to the set you are working on. For example, a bus that uses white train windows can use the ones that have or don’t have shutter-holes. The parts look nearly identical except for this very minor difference. However, a set like the #10190 LEGO Modular Market Street uses shutters in the white train windows so only one type will work. Essentially, you need to make sure that the system did not leave off any parts. It is very annoying when you get around to building to find that you are missing a single part that is not terribly rare, but you just don’t have it.

He has built it, taken it apart and built it again multiple times. He and my 3 year old daughter have so much fun playing with the characters and the horses in and on the castle. Pricey but definitely worth it- I cannot begin to calculate the amount of hours this has kept *both* of my kids occupied. I also love that, when built, the structure is very sturdy and easy to move around. The kids regularly move it from the play table to the floor and back again without any pieces breaking, etc. which is so common with legos. 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! With such an iconic and ubiquitous series like Star Wars, there are going to be some entities which are almost too obvious as candidates for great Lego sets.  The TIE Fighter ranks up there among the most iconic ships in the Star Wars universe and it is great to see Lego produce a high quality kit from the source material.  The TIE Fighter is a large build at 1685 pieces, the final result has a huge presence due mainly to the massive wings on the ship.  It is quite cool to see Lego give the TIE a large scale build like this, it is a part of their Ultimate Collector Series.  The minor complaint here is that it only comes with one minifigurine, which makes sense given the context, but we still enjoy getting a few with our bigger set purchases.  The build will take a few hours, there is some redundancy with how massive the wings are, but the end result is fantastic so the build is ultimately incredibly rewarding. This is one drawback of being the second child. You never have time to become gradually familiar with a building toy. There aren't even enough simple bricks after you start buying set after set.  Instead you inherit of big mass from big brother and if you didn't pick up the "LEGO language" quickly, well, then you need a translator!   Start a High Speed Chase through the streets of LEGO City when the burglar escapes in his super fast sports car! He won't get far with the stolen cash when Chase McCain is on duty! Chase him with the Elite Police vehicle and Elite Police motorcycle!... more A special should be noted about substituting inner foundational pieces. Rare pieces go right out the window when it comes to these. Many times the designers add these to give fans unique pieces to play with, but if they are never seen then you’ll spend a lot for very little return. And for the post above @mrdoofa - happens everywhere - diecast, art, real cars, action figures, etc. I'm pretty sure it doesn't bother Lego - If buyers are willing spend money on old retired items, the same buyers will also spend money on new releases. I bought an Extra Town Hall when it was going EOL. Am I a bad person? I don't think so. The profit when I decide to sell buys more Lego I want, which is good for TLG.. You can do the exact same..... The Sales and Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop was recently updated with some interesting surprises. In addition, the Online LEGO Shop in the UK listed all the large sets that will be retiring soon, which is also interesting to see. Below we will take a look at both lists and see what is worth to buy before getting retired, and before the Double VIP Points period expires in a few days. So let’s begin. 🙂 Another easy way to reduce the price: Just order your pieces by Status, and scroll down until you find the pieces marked with a blueish cross. Those are the extra pieces that come in every set. Delete them immediately. In my case, those were US$ 20 less. [redirect url='http://Discontinued-Items.com/bump' sec='7']

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.
Ewok village is not a ucs kit. Why do people say these kits are ucs just because they are £200 If it does. It have a ucs label on the box it’s not ucs. The 10 part number association stopped in 2014. Ewok village is such a good set though.

Most of the remaining Harry Potter Lego sets were apparently snapped up in stores during the Christmas rush, and now it’s hard to find Harry Potter Lego sets at a reasonable price. (Evidently, it’s not a new thing for investors to buy up collectible toys like this, and resell them online for two or three times the price.) What’s a geeky Dad to do? I want to encourage creative play and nurture her individual interests, but the prices of these hard-to-find Harry Potter Legos sets are eye-popping!
I have most of what I want off this list. A few have remained maybe’s on the list for a long time. Two sets I would possible consider a second copy of would be Wall-E and Pet Shop. But I think I’ll save the money for some of those large sets that came out this year. Still debating on that gorgeous Disney Castle.
I’m a big lego fan and really like this castle. The only problem with it really is that the Gate section falls apart easily, which is a pain because it takes a long time to build. I added some solid bricks on the inside of the gate walls and that helped give it more stability. The kids in my 5 – 7 year old classroom loved it, as does my daughter.

The MINI sets continued in 2004 with a total of seven releases including four larger vehicles (in plastic boxes): the Star Destroyer (#4492), AT-TE (#4495), and three polybags including X-wing Fighter (#6963), Boba Fett’s Slave I (#6964), and TIE Interceptor (#6965). Eight other sets were released in 2003 taking the tally to 15; these included the second release of the Rebel Snowspeeder (#4500), the second release of the Millennium Falcon (#4504), and the third release of the X-wing Fighter (#4502) in minifigure form. This release of the X-wing Fighter came with Yoda’s Hut from Dagobah. 2004 also saw the first release of the Mos Eisley Cantina set (#4501), which featured a small section of the wretched hive of scum and villainy, a Dewback, Landspeeder, and five minifigures — Han Solo, Greedo, Luke Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Sandtrooper. There was only one UCS set released in 2004, which was the Y-Wing Attack Starfighter (#10134). 2004 was the first year to feature a set from the Expanded Universe, the TIE Droid Fighter or TIE Drone; this was included as part of the TIE Collection (#10131).

After years of play or a “great deal” at a yard sale, you may become the proud owner of grubby clumps of dirt that could once be considered LEGO. These are not too difficult to clean, but it can be time-consuming for a large collection. While you’re at it, learn how to reverse discoloration due to sun damage.
Two years is a good ballpark estimate for sets but by no means an accurate way to think about it. Though the average set can be available off and on for two years, many sets don’t last nearly that long, particularly sets tied to movies. Jurassic World hasn’t even been out a year and they are no where to be found. And the Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies sets came out a few months before the movie in late 2014 but I haven’t seen them regularly on a shelf for at least five months. The truth is though some mainstay sets may last two years most don’t. The toy industry moves faster and faster each year. Instead weigh the desirability of a given set rather than expecting it to be safe at the two year mark.
This is not a set you could win in a card game, no matter how drunk Lando gets. It’s the rarest set in this or any Galaxy. Han Solo himself would need several weeks to build the 5,195 piece Millennium Falcon, even with the giant bound instruction guide. May the force be with you if you decide to add this ship to your LEGO Star Wars collection because you’ll need $10,000 to own it.

There might be someone willing to sell it to you or just give it to you if you just start a discussion in your online parenting groups about how you would like to buy affordable LEGOs.  If you are looking to give it to a classroom or community center, mention that in your query.    You never know… For us, we’ve seen a lot of generosity from fellow New Yorkers.  I’m so grateful.
I think the bigger question is why does shop.lego.com remove products from it’s index instead of just saying they are not sold anymore. Links at say, technic.lego.com will link to products on shop.lego.com that are not there anymore. – tooshel Jan 1 ’12 at 18:20
This is newer set of previously released Lego Jaba’s Palace set. My son like this one much more then old one and have a lot of fun to play with. All essential figures are included (some of them are very difficult to find as for example Han Solo in carbonite)and what is most important, this set price is amazing – 112,00 USD when in Europe you will have to pay around 200,00 USD. Even in Lego online shop in USA you have to spend 119,00 USD plus costs of delivery.
Mark had reluctantly agreed to go to the flea market with his wife, as he hated the miles of walking and browsing through junk that he did not want did not thrill him. As they strolled along, a box sat in the corner caught Mark’s eye, and then he saw a rare Lego Mr. Gold figure. Quickly hustling into the stall, he grasped the figure in his hands and offered the vendor 50 cents for it. The vendor agreed and sold the rare Lego minifigure to Mark. Returning home, Mark was fascinated with his find, but still not thrilled with the miles of walking. Then, he had an idea. Instead of going to flea markets in hopes of finding Legos to add to his collection, he could search on eBay. When he did, he found many reliable sellers offering rare Lego minifigures, pieces, and bricks with convenient shipping options. The best news was that he did not have to walk miles to find rare Lego sets and figures.
LEGO Friends is of course not retiring as a theme as it is highly popular, however several of the individual sets are to give room to the new wave next year. The #3185 LEGO Friends Summer Riding Camp is a particularly nice set and it is listed for half price, and so is the #3186 LEGO Friends Emma’s Horse Trailer. You can’t go wrong with these sets as they are super sweet and have great resale value as well. You can fine them at the Retiring Soon section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Lego 21002 Architecture Empire State Building Build the Empire State Building! The Empire State Building joins the LEGO Architecture Landmark series of real-world construction models! Standing 7.4″ (188 mm) tall, New York City’s famous skyscraper is built from tan bricks on a striking 3.1″ (80 mm) gray and black base…
This is a pretty crazy looking set.  Taken from Attack of the Clones, this set pieces together Obi-Wan’s Starfighter with an impressive hyperdrive module.  The hyperdrive is a blast to play with.  It has a dock for the Starfighter, two spring-loaded shooters and a quick release for the Starfighter.  The Startfighter itself isn’t going to blow you away, but it is a sleek little ship that is very well designed and a fun build.  Not as fun as the hyperdrive, but fun nonetheless.  One of our favorite features of this set are the minifigurines.  Of course Obi-Wan is included, but you also get Jango Fett and a young Boba, which is fantastic.  Rounding out the characters is a R4-P17 droid which docks on the Starfighter.  The build isn’t as lengthy as some others here, but it isn’t exactly a quick task either.  The overall fantastic visual appeal makes this set shine, but the smaller details really set it apart.
The King’s Castle is a fun build appropriate for LEGO fans ages 7 to 12. Build it a section at a time, then put it all together. Then add the King, the White Knight, and the other mini figures to complete the model. Collect and combine with other LEGO Castle sets even more adventure. With weapons, multiple rooms to play in, and much more, the King’s Castle is the perfect place for adventure. This set comes with the King, the White Knight, two King’s soldiers and three Dragon soldiers. Set up the mini figures however you like and then it’s time to defend the castle. All LEGO Castle sets are compatible with all other LEGO System sets. The King’s Castle is filled with exciting places to visit and special features. Check out the towers, moveable staircase, hidden escape door, weapon rack, King’s throne, knights’ table, battering ram/catapult weapon, and more. Extras make this set even more fun to build and play with, including two shields, a treasure chest, three swords, a spiked mace, an axe, a crossbow, and a bow with quiver.

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.
The market for old toys on eBay is much bigger than just Lego. If you’ve got some old childhood clutter just gathering dust, here are 8 ways to tell if your old toys could be worth more then just memories while our guide to getting the most cash when selling old toys on eBay can be found here .
Thanks so much for posting this. We have many Lego fans here at our house. I was so stuck on what sets to get for my girls and many stores are sold out on the sets my girls want and Amazon is charging way too much. Sad. So, I was glad to read your tips so off we went to the Lego store to pick up bricks as well as ordering a book through your link. Thanks for the help.
I haven’t tried it myself yet, since my daughter is a little young for Legos, but I’ve heard great things about Pley. It’s a monthly Lego and Duplo rental service, kind of like Netflix for Legos. It could be a great way to try some of the cool sets before you spend lots of money on them, since we all know that just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it will hold your child’s interest. It could also cut down on clutter, since you get to use lots of new sets without having to store the old ones.

You can also order individual bricks from Lego.com, but the wall in the store gets you a better price. Another option for bulk buying is to order on ebay or from sites like BrickLink. (I’ve not done the latter, so I can’t verify the success of that approach; please use caution in your purchases.)
I know this because I got hit with flooding twice in the last year. On top of loosing stuff I also want stuff. Especially the Slave I. I called Lego and told them everything that was going on and how much I wanted the set. They researched what they could but in the end they just don’t have that information very far in advance. They did send me an email letting me know that based on how long it has been out I probably have time.

I use savings websites/apps like Walmart Savings Catcher, IBotta, Checkout51, Microsoft Rewards (Bing Search) to earn gift cards. I then use the gift cards to purchase Lego for my son’s birthday and Christmas presents. I match the gift cards with low-price sales at Amazon, Walmart, or ToysRUs.
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.
I think most kids will stick with the tree house design as it has the most going on. Play-wise, this set works well with a wide range of Lego’s other themes. It is mini-figure size, unlike some of the other Creator sets. The set makes a great gift because if the child does not like it, they have the ability to make a wide range of other structures. At the very least, it is a good collection of very useful bricks.
LEGO STAR WARS GAME—THE BATTLE OF HOTH GAME—-SET 3866 discontinued set complete with origiinal box, parts and manuals Defend Hoth as you battle against your friends and the Empire!

But after seeing the movie and understanding the importance of this ship (and how a great build it is), I changed my mind and now it’s in the fourth position of my recommended list. And believe me, you won’t get a better size/price relation with other than this set.
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.
Crazy number of trains, multiple tracks, storage Thomas, roaring dinosaur ramps, bridges, train station, book box set, individual books (including one from library discontinued we bought second hand) and more. Son outgrown it now we are in LEGO phase! No time wasters this is a great collection.

“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.
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.
When searching for bulk Legos for resale, do a search for “Lego pounds” or “Lego lbs” or “Bulk Lego”, etc.  If a lot looks good, check the seller’s feedback.  If it is 100%, mark the lot as an item to be watched (you’ll find the link in the upper right corner of the listing).  Once you have five or six lots, go to your “My Ebay” page.  The lots will be listed there.

➡ #76052 LEGO BATMAN CLASSIC TV SERIES – BATCAVE: Based on the classic 1960s TV show, this set features a Bat Lab with Batcomputer, the Batmobile, the Batcopter, the Batcycle, and a section of Wayne Manor with Bruce Wayne’s study. The study includes the iconic Batphone, and a false bookcase that slides open to reveal the secret entrance to the Batcave with spiraling poles and a climbing wall. Lots of play-features here, and the set also includes 9 minifigures: Batman, Robin, Bruce Wayne, Dick Grayson, Alfred Pennyworth, The Joker, Catwoman, The Riddler and The Penguin. This set is marked as retiring soon. 2,526 pieces. Regular rice: $269.99 – Sale price: $215.99 – BUY HERE
Mmmmm it just seems ludicrous to me that in order to save money, I have to purchase the earlier wave Lego Dimension sets from a seller in North America. Even with international postage costs, these sets (boxed) work out at an approx saving of 50% compared to the UK price. This seller must have purchased the sets when they were drastically reduced in price, and is obviously making a profit.
A note on aftermarket sales: This set is incredibly popular. I imagine that LEGO was surprised by the demand. The aftermarket prices have come down to ~$60, which is still way to high. But that is how a collector’s market works. Lots of people on here are rating the set low because they paid 2-3 times retail for it, which is the buyer’s fault as much as the seller’s. Many people are also upset with the behavior of sellers who list these sets at high prices, which seems really weird to me. It seems like buyers who are willing to pay those prices should be happy for the fact that the sets are available at all. Buyers that pay that much and then get bent out of shape about it need to look to themselves. Prices go up on collectibles like this because enough buyers are willing to pay for it, simple supply and demand. If you or your kid is wanting this set, just sit tight. There will be more available at retail price soon. If not, just get some LEGO bricks in Minecraft colors and make your own. You’ll be a lot happier.
A couple of tips I’ve picked up – watch postage fees! When putting together an order I make sure I keep the postage cost per part to a minimum. I start with the uncommon parts a seller has, then using the cheapest/common parts I need, bulk up the order so that the number of parts makes the postage per part tiny.
Scrub water-sensitive parts with a dry towel or toothbrush. Set aside any pieces with stickers or printed patterns, as well as any multi-part units that are not meant to be separated, such as turntables. Scrub these with a dry towel, or remove serious grime using a new toothbrush.
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.
This is a really R E M A R K A B L E Lego creation! 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!!! 😀

Getting a child to look closely and really examine subtle differences?  I love that- he’s actually holding a little tiny robot claw for Brickbot in this photo.  Thank you Megan Rothrock- we love Brickbot!
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.
It is 100% complete with all minifigs, weapons, and accessories, as well as the instruction manual. The cover to the manual has separated from the rest of the pages and some of the pages are “split” d…
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).
Finally, when it comes to minifigures, look them up both completely assembled as well as in parts. Often a very rare minifigure that may go for $20 assembled can be bought for less than half that price in parts. I typically create a second Wanted List for this very purpose to make searching easier. Also, some LEGO fans who piece together sets don’t even care about the minifigs. For example if you are setting up a street with multiples of the same LEGO Modular Building, you may only need one set of the minifigures.
For the Lego collectors who love Batman, this set is to die for because it includes more than figurines and vehicles. This set also comes with Batman’s high-tech Bat Cave features control center, prison cell, and rocket and net launcher as well as other working gadgets like the costume transformation chamber.
There are tricks to filling the cup so that you maximize your purchase. For instance, fill the little rim at the bottom with tiny pieces, then add your large, expensive pieces, then add smaller and smaller pieces. Top off the cup with the itty-bitty pieces that shake down into the crevices.
This kind of project is definitely take a lot of resources, both on time and money, but isn’t that what hobbies are for? I already started ordering a couple hundred euros on the first pieces, and I’ll keep on this until I completed it. I’ll keep you posted.
I think the bigger question is why does shop.lego.com remove products from it’s index instead of just saying they are not sold anymore. Links at say, technic.lego.com will link to products on shop.lego.com that are not there anymore. – tooshel Jan 1 ’12 at 18:20
➡ LEGO ANGRY BIRDS SETS ON SALE: The entire LEGO Angry Birds line is on sale.

You can find them under the LEGO Angry Birds section or under Sales and Deals at the Online LEGO Shop.
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. 🙂
No, this is not a cop-out, especially when your Lego lover wants a $350 Ghostbuster set. Just saying! Instead make a contribution toward that maniac’s saving fund. You can gift it in a cute Lego money holder to keep with the theme.
People also like to break up sets to sell the pieces individually on eBay, as they may make more money that way. The mini-figures are the most-valuable, some going for $40 each, even used! You might score a Harry Potter set for a (relative) song without any mini-figures, but your child might not be overjoyed, as the play value seems to depend on having the right beloved characters.
The LEGO Group has revealed some of their upcoming retiring sets in 2017 on the LEGO Europe store. This is a good indicator those sets will be retired worldwide soon. Included in the list are: Ninjago sets 70605 Misfortune’s Keep… Continue Reading →
Megan Rothrock: Her next LEGO Adventure book is coming out this year!!!! Do you have questions for her? Like… how did you get your job designing for LEGO? Can you hire my son as an intern- I will even pay you!?
There’s no magic here. You buy something, it goes up in value (if you buy the right thing), and then you sell it. As Maciorowski explains it: “This is no different from the stock market.” Or the shoe market. Except you’re buying Legos instead of shares of Nike (or actual Nikes). At the same time, the Lego market is different from a lot of postconsumer markets. These aren’t Beanie Babies. Some Lego sets sell for upwards of $6,000 or $7,000. And they’re not just going to magically be worth practically nothing overnight, as happened to the Jerry Garcia Beanie Baby.

The Modular Buildings series is viewed by Lego designers and fan sites as “toys for adults”.[10] Product reviews have been very positive with the biggest criticisms being price and degree of difficulty. With Café Corner, one reviewer complained that the interior of the building was bare of any finishing.[2] This complaint was addressed in later models such as Green Grocer, which had finished interior details included in each of its three floors.[10]
I would not have called that. They have some really good designers and I would have thought they would have found a way around that, if it’s worth it. Just scale the Technic figures as well (I could think of a way to do that, just make them more modular, or simply make large/medium/small versions.), or only include them in larger models and make the larger models roughly to one scale.

Bane’s drill, though not really in character for him, is really, really cool. When you roll it, the drill part moves. The bat cycle included isn’t as nice as the one from the Funhouse set, but still good to have.
The Assembly Square ground level features a bakery with counter, cash register, shelves, opening oven, wedding cake and assorted buildable pastries and treats; a florist’s shop with counter, cash register, garden tools, flower arrangements, bouquets and a blue and yellow macaw parrot element; and a café with espresso machine, counter, bench seating and pie elements. The middle level features a music store with a buildable drum set, two guitars and saxophone element; photo studio with a “antique” large format bellows camera atop an adjustable tripod; and a dental office with buildable reclining chair, waiting area, telephone and a sink. The upper level features a dance studio with buildable piano and reflective mirror element; an apartment with buildable foldout sofa bed, detailed kitchen, toilet, micro LEGO® train, modular buildings and Eiffel Tower, and access to a rooftop terrace with buildable barbecue, table and a neglected plant.
Brilliant to use the shield as a trowel for the BRICKLAYER. I’ve lifted the idea for a carpenter’s workstation and changed it a bit.  I’ve created a workbench on the mezzanine floor inspired by this idea.  Also the ‘plate compactor’ being used on the pavement is from 7746-1 from 2009.

A T-junction is a very small piece that allows three pieces of tubing to connect into one junction, essentially splitting (or joining) airflow from two hoses into one. These only allow 1:2 branching, but by combining T-junctions, any number of branches can be achieved (i.e.: one tube can branch into three by using two T-junctions).
A set is made for about 2 years, then that stops, then it all depends on how quickly the existing stocks sell out.. usually it is 3 years total from ‘release’ to ‘cannot find them from Lego’. There ARE exceptions of course, such as sets made for specific stores, such as the Limo and City townhouse. At least in the States the Limo with chopper was out for an astounding handful of months even though Europe had them for about 6 months before, and then it was only Lego and Walmart selling them..
So what does this mean? If you see a LEGO set you like, buy it. Don’t wait and pay aftermarket prices! (although I love it when you do, some of those modulars for sale on BL are mine. Think of it as enabling my habit)

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.
#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).

I think you’d find that because of specilist parts that are in the UCS models, that as has been said before, require special molds, it wouldn’t be worth carrying on production. They need to modernise after all. So if something’s new then sacrifice something old for it surely ? 🙂
