“best lego sets for adults review +classic lego sets for sale review”

Not the best set for adult collectors, though my kids did like it for all the animals included within — a dog, a crab and THREE sharks! The build for the Coast Guard boat is okay. It’s designed to be a bathtub toy, so the base of the boat (the entire white area from the deck on down) is just one gigantic plastic piece. The lettering and graphics you see are stickers as opposed to being printed on, and I can’t imagine they’ll last long after being played with in water.
One of the most popular and sought-after superheroes for both children and adults is the crime-fighting and deep-voiced Dark Knight. Batman isn’t going out of style anytime soon and neither are the toys and games that don his likeness.
The Architecture Eiffel Tower presents a moderate level of challenge suitable for the amateur builder, and completing it results in a charming conversation piece you’ll enjoy showing off for years. It’s also a great model to build along with your kids.

I have all the sets except Market Street. I also have an extra Green Grocer MISB. I am so fortunate that I bought the Cafe Corner when I did. It had already been discontinued when I purchased it at the LEGO store. A fluke. My advice to all of you that don’t have the Cafe Corner or an unlimited income…. Move on with your Lego life. The Green Grocer is still somewhat attainable. Every time you look over at the Fire Brigade, Grand Emporium, and now the Pet Shop you will be reminded of what could have been.
Lego Technic system expands on the normal LEGO bricks with a whole range of new bricks that offer new function and building styles. The most significant change from normal LEGO is that single-stud wide bricks (‘beams’) have circular holes through their vertical face, positioned in-between the studs. These holes can accommodate pins, which enable two beams to be held securely together side-by-side, or hinged at an angle. The holes also act as bearings for axles, on which gears and wheels can be attached to create complex mechanisms. Stud-less beams (studs are the bumps traditionally associated with Lego parts), referred to as ‘liftarms’ were first introduced in 1989 and through the 1990s and 2000s and increasing number of liftarm designs have been introduced over time.

There’s a difference between boys and girls. Yeah, I mean, beyond that one difference. If you give male and female monkeys toys and you give them toy cars and dolls, the male monkey will generally start playing with the car, even if they have no proper understanding of what a car even is. It has moving wheels, it can be pushed down slopes, it speaks to the technical part of the brain. The female monkey will more likely pick up the doll. The “caring” instinct.
LEGO released the first European gears in 1970.[2] At the same time, cross axles and bushes were introduced, which are still used in TECHNIC sets today. The first universal joint also appeared around this time.
At 3,152 pieces, this Super Star Destroyer is an even larger undertaking than the Ultimate Star Destroyer we listed earlier. And given the thinner design of this one, you could argue that it’s even more difficult to build. Again, the limited color palette makes picking the right pieces difficult, and the stark Imperial design makes the job at hand even harder.

Another great entry in the Lego Star Wars series, the Death Star set promises to be just as much an exercise in nostalgia as in patience and puzzle-solving. Constructing the 16″x16″ round orb of doom will take plenty of weeks, with over 4,000 pieces to construct and assemble as you build not just the outer shell protecting an entire planet-destroying laser, but also the interior, complete with plenty of Lego figurines and small details familiar to the star Wars super-fans inside of all of us. With over 23 mini-figures, a control-room for the laser, hangar bay with a movable launch rack, and even a detachable TIE Fighter for Lord Vader, the Death Star set is one of our favorite Star Wars sets ever constructed. It’s no secret when it comes to Lego kits, it’s the little details that count, and the Death Star is full of hidden easter eggs that’ll leave even the most dedicated fans of George Lucas’ space opera series giddy with glee. As you can imagine, something with so much intricacies and detail won’t come cheap: those 4,000 pieces will run you a cool $499, one of the more expensive sets still in production from Lego. It might sound expensive, but for the Star Wars fan in your life, this is a must-have gift.
My grandson requested this for his 10th birthday and stalked the mail carrier until it came — lucky for Prime it was quick! He loves it…and now his cousin wants one. Legos are cool because the kids have to follow the pictured directions and if they don’t follow a process their results aren’t what they want. They have to back up and see what they missed. That practice is a good one for any child to learn and good developmentally for mathematics and science. At least, that is what I am telling myself….cause he doesn’t care — he just loves his Legos and I am just fine with that!

Town Hall (set number 10224) was released in March 2012 and is the seventh set in the Modular Building line. The set contains 2766 pieces and is recommended for builders 14 and over. It is the tallest Modular set, taking the title from the Green Grocer—having three floors with generally higher ceilings than the norm, plus a clock and bell tower on the roof. It contains many interior details, such as a working elevator, along with board tables and balconies to look to the floor below. Along with many the interior decor details the building features the pilastered portico and brick façade treatments of United States Colonial Revival architecture. The 1891 date on the building represents the birth year of the founder of LEGO and when reversed, it’s the birth year of the designer, Astrid (1981). The set was priced at £149.99/US$199.99/179.99€ when released by LEGO on February 16, 2012. There are eight minifigures in the set including a wedding couple. The set had a global discontinuation date of 31 December 2014 and had a much shorter lifespan than its predecessors.
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?? 😀

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)
Yes. I definitely think that the current price for CMF is higher than their intrinsic worth, therefore we have a classic bubble on hand. It will burst at some point. However, I think the S1 and even S2 figures, on the other hand, are not overvalued and were not overvalued during the original sale run. Since S1 and S2 saw shorter manufacturing runs, the figures are more rare. Also being the first sets of its kind provide the added value we see with such objects like a first edition book. When we got to S3, the levels of production increased making the items less rare. Pricing increased as well making purchase less compelling. If you’re looking at CMFs as an investment, I don’t think they really are anymore.

We’d be lying if we said this was our first pick for our favorite Batman-related set, but unfortunately, a large number of Lego Batman sets were discontinued before the release of this year’s smash animated comedy “The LEGO Batman Movie.” Thankfully, a number of movie-branded sets replaced them, and while most of them were aimed at children, we think the Batcave Break-In set is the perfect kit for parents and kids to build together. With over 1,000 pieces, it’s a bit of a challenge for younger children to tackle on their own, but if they’re big fans of the animated film, they’ll love the task of recreating one of the scenes from the movie—and you’ll love building it with them. With plenty of minifigures, accessories, and play-styles, this is one of our best picks for a set that balances complexity with play, making sure that even after the set is built, your child can still play around and recreate the adventures of Will Arnett’s Batman right in your own house. If you’re a fan of this Batman set, there are a ton of other Lego Batman sets that are guaranteed to create the same amount of fun and enjoyment in your child’s eyes—and you’ll have fun watching them learn how to build it right on their own.

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.
Yes, TLG wanted to make small Technic sets as well, because not everyone has 50$ to spend on something big enough for those figures to sit in. Besides, with Technic, as W3ird N3rd said, you are the one controlling the set, not the minifigure.
