This Creator Carousel Lego set is one of the best Lego sets, and is nothing less than amazing. It should be considered a must have for all serious Lego collectors. The carousel is not just a display piece because it really spins and plays music while the intricately detailed horses and swing boats move up and down! This expensive Lego set also comes with nine figurines and over three-thousand pieces.
Not having everything available any time for a reasonable price is what makes collecting fun. Whats a collection if not some of the pieces gain worth over time? Do you really want a world, where theres no way that any set in your collection will grow to a rare item?

The highly prized LEGO Ideas NASA  Apollo Saturn V (21309) may probably still sit on the top of our must have LEGO sets of the year, but unfortunately, in spite of the relative early shelf life of this set since its release last June, the availability of the Apollo Saturn V has been notoriously close to none. True, we have the reassuring words from the LEGO Ideas Team that the set will not be retired right away given that it only been three months in circulation since its release in June 1. There were also moments when the NASA Apollo Saturn V set has been available at LEGO shop@home on very seldom occasions. However, the obvious unavailability of the set for weeks has cast a shadow of a doubt on the truth behind the availability of this highly sought after set. read more
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.
That said, if you have the time and can split the box out by category (be it Star Wars, pirates, Medieval, Technic or whatever) these smaller – more specific – bundles will frequently sell for more than a job-lot of unsorted bricks.
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 STAR WARS 75034 DEATH STAR TROOPERS SET. – This set has beenOPENED, BUILT, DISPLAYED and DISASSEMBLED a few times over the years by anADULT COLLECTOR. I really loved building and owning this set,…
Looks like I’m safe. Already have at least one of each of all of these, and have gotten a second of the ones I really like (e.g. Wall-E and Doctor Who). Surprised to see the Sandcrawler go so soon though (assuming it’s retired at the same time as the Ewok Village).

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.

The less cool little brother of the X-Wing, the Y-Wing has always gotten a bit of a bum wrap.  They don’t project the sleek, effortless cool of a TIE or X-Wing fighter, but they get the job done and played a big role in the Star Wars universe.  Y-Wings were featured throughout many Star Wars movies, this one comes with minifigurines of Admiral Raddus and Moroff, suggesting it was set in the Rogue One timeframe.  The pilot is a generic Rebel pilot, rounding out the minifigurines are a Stormtrooper and an Astromech droid.  The extras on this set are why it makes our list.  The retracting landing gear is great, but the using the included crane to lift the ammo into place, then a fantastic rear gearwheel mechanic is used to drop the payload.  It’s quite a fun little mechanical twist that really stands out.  This build will likely take an hour or two, so not terrible complicated, but still a fun time as always.  The Y-Wing isn’t as sexy as an X-Wing, but it still deserves a place on your Lego shelf.

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.

The rarer a set, the more money it’s worth. But Lego can do another run whenever it feels like it. The new Cinderella Castle, which was released last month, is a good example. It’s a 4,000-piece set, based on the Disney Resort castle. It has all the makings of a great investment: big set, never before released, and inspired by a behemoth brand—Disney. “It’s a $350 set that may hit $1,000 in a few months because every little girl in the world is going to want to build Cinderella’s castle,” he says. “On the flip side, Lego may keep making them for 10 years.” No one ever knows what Lego is thinking, so you need to be comfortable with your investment.
@myscrnnm: On most tape-sealed LEGO boxes there is a printed production run code on one of the seals, e.g. XXS6 with XX being the week of production, with S being Europe and 6 being 2016 (or 2006). On glued boxes the code is embossed or, since recently on some sets, printed.
Similar to Ebates, I use Upromise.com to get a bit of a price discount. If you can’t find a sale, I’ve used lego.com via Upromise and found that a) they have really excellent customer service and b) you can build up “lego points” to get a discount on a future purchase.

When shopping for the holidays many LEGO fans focus on the newest sets, however it is also a good idea to check out the LEGO Sets Retiring Soon and the LEGO Sales & Deals sections of the Online LEGO Shop. This is especially true towards the end of the year when many sets get put and sale and retired to give space for the sets of the new year. So let’s take a look at what is getting cleared out right now, and you can also use the links in the right-hand side-bar to check regularly before the end of the year. 🙂
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 included is set # 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge. This set is mostly complete, missing all the mini figs except Jabba and missing one piece from the skiff (the light grey control panel) but I substituted another piece.
