Nice post, I have every released Lego Aquaraiders except one hard to find item now worth upwards of $100, and will probably sell them individually in about 10 years after picking up a couple missing pieces on PAB. I also plan to do the same with my Indiana Jones sets (of which I have 4/5 of all of the released sets) but my SW & Ninjago sets are keepers.
Yeah, I have experienced that as well. Even from LEGO’s own website. It is worth checking how much printed instructions are on BrickLink. Although for exclusives they can be expensive, for most sets they are just a few cents.

Lego Star Wars Millennium Falcon Retiring Soon Lego is proud to present the largest and most detailed model ever created.

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…..
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
This set has been sold out from Lego for some time now and has been discontinued so the price is only going to go up from here, so if you don’t have this one yet, this is your chance to get it before …
Read Carefully- They will likely write that in the description -“this is a picture of a random sampling”.  Also be aware that you may not be getting “only” LEGOs.  If you don’t want to see Mega Blocks in the bag, read carefully.

This set includes three black and red dragon soldiers. One is equipped with a chest plate, shield, sword, and full helmet. Another is equipped with an ax and helmet. The last is equipped with a mace and a helmet in a new shape.
The following chart shows the lifespans for modern Star Wars UCS sets, beginning with the infamous Millenium Falcon from 2007. We have excluded data from prior to this because LEGO set lifespans were considerably different a decade ago and thus that data should not be considered relevant when evaluating future retirements. Note that this chart and the lists below contain large Star Wars sets that may not have been officially designated as UCS sets — such 10188 Death Star and 10236 Ewok Village — but rather than debate the semantics of the UCS moniker, we have opted to simply include all large, exclusive Star Wars sets from 2007 onwards.
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.
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. 
Legos in a complete set, who knew?. We had Legos as kids back in the ’60s & 70s. We would buy the blocks in very small sets as our allowance would slowly accumulate. My younger brother over time made some absolutely incredible creations using a mishmash of block sizes and styles. We would have wet our pants with happiness to receive an integrated SET. And this one is fantastic, especially being a Star Wars fan, having seen the original Star Wars movie in college over and over again…. Well worth the cost, and glad I have this set!!

For example, the 10197 Fire Brigade has been around since 2009, same as 10193 but both are still selling. While Ninjago is currently changing and set 2258 suddenly is no longer for sale in the Lego Store at Disneyland and not available online. Yet that series only came out this year.
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.
To me “Retiring Soon” label was the latest promotional tool from S@H to entice people to buy older sets WITHOUT loss of profit (via discounts).  Since it is just a promo tool, it does not need to be 100% reliable.
Yay! Doesn’t that feel good when something comes together like that? Glad you live close enough to a pick-a-brick wall. It’s an hour’s drive either way for me, so I went with the brick box, but still feel better than a set.

As one of the most iconic vehicles form the OG Star Wars movies, you have to have the AT-AT walker as part of your collection. Released in 2010, the 815-piece set comes with 8 minifigures like Luke Skywalker, C-3PO, Han Solo in Echo base gear, Rebel Trooper with P-Tower laser cannon, AT-AT pilot, 2 Snowtroopers, General Veers and Imperial Officer.
Also, even if LEGO would allow international shipping, shipping fees would negate any savings you would get on a sale. International shipping fees can be enormous. Especially on sealed sets. I’m a BrickLink and eBay seller and after the most recent rate increases I simply had to stop selling internationally, as the fees are so crazy.

➡ LEGO SETS RETIRING SOON: There are several LEGO Star Wars sets that are getting retired to give room for the 2015 LEGO Star War sets. Some of the highlights include the #75018 LEGO Star Wars Jek-14’s Stealth Starfighter, the #75019 LEGO Star Wars AT-TE, the #75022 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Speeder, the #75039 LEGO Star Wars V-wing Starfighter, and the #9493 LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter. None of them are listed for sale, just that they are retiring soon. In my experience if and when sets like this do go on sale they disappear so fast you will likely miss them. So if you are interested in any of these sets I would suggest you get them now before they are gone. You can find them all at the Retiring Soon section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Great article!  I LOVE all these Star Wars Lego sets.  (Small correction:  #2 on your list is 6211 Imperial Star Destroyer, but the image is of the even more awesome 10030 Imperial Star Destroyer with 3096 pieces).  Also, for me personally, I’d replace #12 AT-AT Walker with the 10178 Motorized AT-AT that walks around my kitchen and bumps into things.  🙂
We love Cheap Lego. Brick-a-brac-uk is a UK based e-commerce retailer specialising in discontinued, rare and exclusive lego products.We have been trading for over 3 years and try to provide the best Lego deals possible.
I got told by a member of staff in the Meadowhall Lego store when I bought Ecto 1 that most ideas sets only get a 1 year production run, ecto 1 got extended because of the GB firehouse set that came out this year, I don’t know if that’s true but it’s what I got told.
I bought this for my 4 year old son for Yule. Since he’s not quite ready to assemble these sets yet, I was pleased to see that the pieces were conveniently bagged in a way that would facilitate assembly. Bag number 1 contains the figures, which gave my son something to play with while the rest of the set was being assembled. Bags numbers 2 through 10 could then be opened in order, assembling the structure from each bag before opening the next. The base plates are in a separate bag but they are large enough that they are unlikely to be lost. Having only one bag open at a time – with the smaller pieces in a smaller baglet within that bag – greatly reduced the chances of losing a piece, and in fact only one piece was lost during assembly by mommy, daddy, and 6 year old big sister, despite the attempts of 2 year old brozilla.

So many features for this Lego Technic Unimog Trial Truck, an excellent climber with a lot of power as well. The creator is “PunkTacoNYC” and we must say that this is one of the best Lego MOC Offroad we’ve ever seen. Enjoy!!! 😀
The components come down to “what’s in the box?”  This is an important aspect of any Lego set, but arguably even more so in a licensed theme like Star Wars.  As a fan of the movies, you know the sets before you start building them.  Sets which have the perfect balance of nostalgia and just plain cool features will inevitably rise to the top for us.  For more info and reviews please visit our friends at Ninja Brick and read their Star Wars reviews.
Brand new sealed, never got around to it so it’s up for sale. Camaro Drag Race set is actually discontinued and the average on eBay is anywhere from $72-100 posted – I just want my money back. Audi Set is sold. Price is not negotiable. Pick up at Woodcroft
I also keep an eye on elements listed as used. They often are the cheapest variety but they can also be the most discolored. One time I even received a piece with a sticker I needed to remove. Usually the pieces you don’t want used are ones that are entirely decorative like a printed element or window-glass. The problem with glass is not how clean it is but how well it fits in a frame. If the nubs are worn down too much they can easily fall out. As for discolorations, white is your biggest issue. It’s the one piece that is very noticeable when discolored. Keep this in mind if what you want is a pristine looking final model.
While the Imperial Star Destroyer includes a to-scale Tantive IV for those with a burning desire to recreate the opening scenes of A New Hope, purists will likely fancy this much-larger version of the Rebel’s Corellian vessel as well. Leia’s Corvette model ship is incredibly rare and can also lay claim to introducing a new ‘dark red’ brick into the Lego tool-kit.

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 set comes with instructions for all three models. The pieces are bagged into several groups to make sorting easier. I find the models all to be great to play with, though I’ve left mine in the treehouse configuration. There are a nice variety of parts and building techniques to keep the builder interested throughout.
In addition to the rationale of logistical supply chain that people are mentioning for the discontinuation of sets, I thought I should point out that the collector’s market after a set is retired is skewing our perspective with respect to what the demand was while the set was in production.
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.

Oh boy, how I wanted to have an AT-AT since I was a little kid. Even the protagonist And not only because they’re the “most heavily armored ground vehicle in the Imperial Army”, but because the lead character in E.T. had one as a toy!
In order to hold the pieces I pull for the project, I typically use a sturdy zip-lock style bag. I actually found the two gallon variety works amazingly well for large sets. As I go through the list, I’m either clicking the delete box when I have all the pieces or I’m moving the quantity I still need into the comment box from the minimum quantity wanted. The reason for this move has to do with how BrickLink functions. If you keep the amount only in the minimum quantity wanted box, it only shows that element if that quantity is reached in a particular store. So even if the store has some of the pieces you need, it will not show up if you have the minimum quantity box filled with a higher number. Unlike the minimum quantity box, the comment box is only a brief note. So no matter how many pieces a store has, their inventory will show up in your search results. And the nice thing is that your note will also show right under where you would indicate how much of each piece you want.
Yes, I know that sounds silly. Many Lego maniacs will sniff you out. But, lots of kids don’t really care where the Lego come from. Mine certainly didn’t. They were thrilled with this random bag my mom picked up at a garage sale for a few bucks.
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.
That’s a great deal, I got mine from Target too, and it was $29.99….was yours an online return? Because when the someone returns an item they bought online, the price is epically reduced, even if it is pristine condition.

The battle is about to begin! The Dragon soldiers are on the march toward the King’s Castle, and only the White Knight can save the day. Who will win, the King’s soldiers or the Dragon soldiers? You decide with this awesome LEGO Castle set.
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.
Design: This set uses a modular design. If you follow the instructions, you get eight distinct modules, four above ground and four below ground. You can arrange these in dozens of different ways to create tiny cave networks and a multi-layered effect. The caves have several different kinds of hidden resources that you can only see when you take the top layer off. The overall effect of the design is a pretty good representation of the Minecraft world.
I ended up purchasing a second set of the Pet Shop and I’ll be totally honest I can’t remember if I either had the idea originally or saw it on-line, but it can be fun to build the second apartment building as a mirror to the first one. Also a bit of a mind bender if I remember correctly! I have mine set up with the two doors close to each other but it’s certainly easy enough to switch them around if you prefer them that way.

No paperweights required. Also included is a sheet of stickers with brick patterns, as well as a sheet of malleable plastic with three flags.
The Taj Mahal is the supreme ruler of the most iconic images of India. This magnificent building is ideal for a Lego replica because the four sides of the structure are perfectly identical, creating a mirrored image on each side. Here, the architectural elements of self-replicating geometry and symmetry come into play.

My two little sisters were looking forward to getting the Lego Friends hourse riding camp set, (the $100, whatever it’s called,) and so we were on the Lego shopping site, and I saw that it was on clearance for $49.99. And immediately I was like, “YOU…WHA-BUT YOU GOT IT SOOO GOO-” and then I realized it was sold out 🙂 🙁 . I was seriously considering picking one up for myself, for the pieces.

“lego expert sets cheap _lego modular 2017 review”

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. 🙂
Café Corner (set number: 10182) was the first of the Modular Buildings series. It was originally released in April 2007 at a MSRP of US$139.[3] The set contains 2056 pieces and is recommended for builders 10 years of age or older. Some of the set features include a 3 floor building set on a street corner, a vertical ‘Hotel’ sign, opening doors and windows, café tables and umbrellas, a striped awning and 3 minifigures.[4] Many unusual building techniques were incorporated, such as annexes, fanned ski shoes as decoration, angled corner, and a 3D façade.[2]

Can you believe that Lego Modulars has been around for 10 years now? They have! The Corner Cafe was first released in 2007 and now Lego has just announced their new model for 2017, Assembly Square (set # 10255), which marks 10 years of modular Lego building! For this auspicious occasion, Lego has gone all out in creating one of the most elaborate modulars yet – a fact which the piece count of 4,002 pieces attests to! That’s almost twice as many pieces as the original Cafe Corner! Unfortunately, the higher price puts this one out of my budget but if you can get your hands on one you will be in for a treat – as the above photos show! Not only is there a ground floor bakery, florist’s shop and café, but a music store, photo studio and dental office, AND an upper-level dance studio and apartment with a rooftop terrace for barbecuing. The details are absolutely stunning! I was one of the original Cafe Corner builders who called Lego to let them know that while I really appreciated the exterior details, I felt that the interior needed to be decorated as well. Lego obviously took my advice (and that of others) for each set has continued to improve in that department – Assembly Square, in my humble opinion, being the best design yet!
The ground floor is the ticket and concessions area leading up to the theater floor housing a reel-to-reel projector showing a black and white motion picture to a maximum seating of six. This floor also has stairs accessing the roof, atop which the two brick-built promotional searchlights can be placed. The set includes six minifigures.

Lego’s Architecture line started in 2008, with a focus on perfecting and recreating famous buildings and monuments around the world, for recreation at home. Since its creation, Lego has created 32 full-size Architecture sets, along with 10 special edition sets for companies and campuses around the world. The original few sets were sold in limited sets and focused on minimalism design and artwork, using less than 100 pieces in total throughout the set and displayed in places like The Lego Store in New York City. Since then, they’ve expanded both their availability and the complexity of each set. One such example: Lego’s United States Capitol Building, which focuses on accurately recreating a to-scale set of the Capitol Building in Washington D.C., and uses over 1,000 pieces in total.

Cylinders look like pumps, but they are the outputs of the energy, rather than the inputs. There are five versions of cylinders. The Generation 1 cylinders came in two lengths, only had one input and worked on pressure or vacuum. The Generation 2 cylinders have 2 inputs (and come in studded, studless, and small versions), and work on pressure in both directions. They allow pushing and pulling, depending on which input air is pumped into.
After calculating the price for the entire set, you can now order all the pieces by price so you can see which are the ones causing the greater damage. So, for my example, the UCS Millennium Falcon still costs US$ 3800. We’re now US$ 2600 down from the original price, but still, a lot of money.

Thanks Seamus for the reminder – I added information on the newly announced Assembly Square set today! I also appreciated your comments earlier this year regarding ideas for new modular designs. Looks like Lego took you advice with the dentist office 🙂 Although I also agree with you that a police station and post office (as well as a hospital) are still sorely needed and would be a great “connection” with other sets.

I didn’t actually do this but I think, right now, (late 2012) if you want new copies of each, you are looking at around 3500-4000 USD, plus or minus. (Quick check, the cheapest new, MISB Cafe Corner is 1300ish, Green Grocer about 500ish and Market Street around 1300 as well… the others are less since they are still in production, yoiu can probably get all 4 for less than a grand…)
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.
Pet Shop is supposed to be officially on sale tomorrow. The clock is ticking for the other sets. Since I already have one built of each…. the questions is how many of you who already have one are getting a second Fire Brigade or Emporium?
The internet delighted when the Lego Creator line debuted the classic Volkswagen T1 Camper van a few years ago, and it’s still one of the most fun and most unique Lego sets we’ve seen on the market. Though the first series has been unfortunately been discontinued by Lego—as is the standard for most unique Creator products—you can still find these classic ’70s busses for the low price of $149 if you look in the right places online, a great price for this 1,300 piece set. The second-series set, meanwhile, is an even cheaper $119, though it comes in a slightly-reworked box design. We’ve linked to the cheaper second-generation model, but the first is also available on Amazon. The interior of this bus is what makes it so special—with a fully-detailed interior, complete with table, seats, steering wheel, and even a gear shift knob. Both the back and the side doors can open, so you can see the interior in all its glory. Overall, just like with some of the Star Wars sets on this list, this Volkswagen camper van just makes us nostalgic and reminiscent for a bygone period of time. Groovy.
Market Street has some interesting build techniques and I like the color scheme, but on the whole, it isn’t up to snuff with the rest of the line. The roof looks unfinished, and the bizarre looking single story side market just doesn’t fit in with the row of modulars at all. The final nail in the coffin is that it had an even shorter production run than it’s counterparts, so it’s aftermarket price is further out of proportion.
The only surprise here is that 2011’s Volkswagen T1 Camper Van was given the redesigned box treatment. It has been widely expected that this set would retire soon, and it still may, but an updated box does potentially indicate that there is still some time left on that set before it retires.
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.

@mrpole: you definitely have to do your research for each particular set. For example, Market Street is going for $500 on Bricklink the last time I saw. You would think that since the set includes about 1000 pieces, you could get the set for $150 if you can get pieces at an average of $.15. Unfortunately there are several rare elements to this set that drive up the cost. For example the set requires 5 dark blue arches ($10/ea), 79 dark blue 1×4 bricks ($1/ea), 4 white hoses ($5/ea)…. if you add just those together you’re paying $149 for 88 of the 1000+ pieces. That’s not including shipping. I’m not discouraging you doing it, but make sure it’s feasible before you start…. get the rare elements first, otherwise you’ll be left with a big hole in your project. Another thing to consider is to wait and hope that some of these rare parts are included in future sets for possible cannibalization.
I’ll be bricklinking all 6 of the retired modulars: TH, CC, GG, FB, GE, and MS. I don’t mind swapping the high dollar parts out for cheaper ones, as these are more for display and I don’t plan to resell them. I’ve found a couple good resources for subbing the parts: here, here, and here.
Jamie Berard and I have traded Emails in the past (I didn’t know it was him talking on the videos, since I didn’t see his name on Youtube, plus I never met him in person…) but he did buy my first LEGO CD (1949-80) 2 years ago…. and he’s a brilliant builder…

Whether you have a child or are an adult enthusiast and collector, LEGO makes many sets and toys for all levels of builders. LEGO sets range in size from a handful of pieces to kits numbering in the thousands of blocks. LEGO toys cover a range of types, from buildings to ships to vehicles.
Sacrebleu! Recreating this iconic French landmark in LEGO form takes 3,428 bricks. Most of them are titchy and gray. It’s a careful balancing act to get them all together without knocking the whole thing over, as well. This kit is aimed at ages 16 and up, and it’s a very precise and challenging project. Best of luck to anyone out there attempting it!
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 6-7 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.
LEGO kits don’t come much more difficult than this: the second Death Star consists of 3,417 pieces, plus it has a ‘half-finished’ state as its intended final look. Tough stuff! Once you’ve constructed this technological terror, you’ll want to put it in pride of place. Thankfully, it comes with a little stand to let you do just that.

For some reason, Lego decided to revive an obscure line from ’79 targeted at young girls. The one thing that kept the Scala doll line remotely attached to the Lego brand was the use of some bricks in the play sets, and from ’97-’98, the brick studs were in flower-shapes incompatible with other Lego sets.

So, what do you think – ready to design and build your own Lego modular? Assuming you have enough pieces, it is not as hard as it looks – at least to build the exterior of a building. Simply begin with a board and create the bottom shape (you can copy from another modular if you like) then keep building up adding doors, windows, etc. The real challenge comes when you start designing the interior – all of those little details and making them fit together can be overwhelming.

“lego collector sets -recently retired lego star wars sets”

Yes thats actually what happened to me, I recovered an old catalog from 2007, flipped through it, and found the Cafe Corner. My eyes widened as I drooled over the set (its price was listed as $130.) I couldnt find it on legoshop.com, so I looked on eBay and found one for $1040. I was then really disappointed, because I could never afford it at that price…

We chose this for our 6 yr old daughter after being disappointed with the Lego Friends sets, which did not seem to involve as much building. This was a great set for her, and we love the 30 in 1 aspect.
Imagine if LEGO gave every set a 1-10 rating indicating its potential as for resale investment and then sent you and email letting you know when a set is being retired and always did a 50% discount for retiring sets. that would be amazing and super easy right?! But then again if they did that everyone and their mother would be investing in LEGO. One of the reasons why LEGO still has investment potential is because its actually pretty difficult so 99.9% of doesnt stand a chance and making a profit, unless they did a ton of research and even then you still need a “feel” for the LEGO market, and thats not something someone can be taught, its just acquired with years of experience.
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?
Yeah, I have experienced that as well. Even from LEGO’s own website. It is worth checking how much printed instructions are on BrickLink. Although for exclusives they can be expensive, for most sets they are just a few cents.
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.
That would be great, but I doubt LEGO would ever make it for the reasons you mentioned. Having said that, if a LEGO Ideas Hunger Games project would make it to 10,000, LEGO might consider a one-time set. 😉
With no new film in 2003, the number of sets released was reduced to 20 of which 8 were MINI sets (in plastic boxes) featuring iconic Star Wars vehicles from the five films released to date.  Four of these sets came as two packs featuring matched pairs of vehicles such as X-wing Fighter & Tie Advanced (#4484), Sebulba’s Podracer & Anakin’s Podracer (#4485), AT-ST & Snowspeeder (#4486) and Jedi Starfighter & Slave I (#4487) — each one of these sets included extra pieces to create a TIE Bomber. The other four Mini sets featured larger vehicles such as the Millennium Falcon (#4488) and AT-AT (#4489). 2003 also saw the release of the largest minifigure to date — Jabba the Hutt — as part of the Jabba’s Palace set (#4480) and also the first large scale AT-AT (#4483). Two USC were also released during the year, the Rebel Snowspeeder (#10129) and the elusive Cloud City set (#10123), the latter of which includes a uniquely printed Boba Fett minifigure which is very hard to find (and one of the few sets I still don’t own).
I guess if I was a buyer I would focus and getting at least 1 of the bigger sets you want, regardless of the Price (although sites like Brickset help out TREMENDOUSLY in finding sales on sets at different places) and worry about the smaller ones later, that way if the smaller one sells out you have a good chance of picking one up for a decent price later (if if discontinued)
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.)

So, if a lot of the elements are still being produced for other sets, that’ll bring down the cost. And similarly, if there aren’t many new products for a given year (new SKUs), it’ll increase the likelihood of an older product sticking around (LEGO has a limited number of SKUs available every year– effectively the barcodes for items).
They just don’t know where to look, you’ll be able to get a Slave I at least until the end of 2016. The only big ones that retired at the end of last year were 76023 The Tumbler, 10240 Red Five X-Wing, and 10188 Death Star.
In 2000 we got our first two UCS sets, the X-wing Fighter (#7191) and the TIE Interceptor (#7181). This X-wing fighter was the largest LEGO Star Wars set to date with 1,300 pieces. That year also saw the first Technic Star Wars sets in the form of a Pit Droid (#8000), Battle Droid (#8001), and Destroyer Droid (#8002). In total 19 sets were released in 2000, including the first LEGO System version of the Slave I (#7144) and Millennium Falcon (#7190). This year also saw the first LEGO Star Wars key rings to be released which included Darth Vader (not included in set counts).

If I have lit a shopping spark in you… I’m sorry! ‘Tis a bad habit o’ mine.  But do use my link at Amazon if you plan to shop from there.  Remember your neighborhood toy stores as well! Invest in your local economy- it’s money back to you someway somehow!  Here are some of the links to books and products I’ve mentioned.
Great article !! I am currently awaiting for a lot of Bricklink orders to to be delivered, covering the building-from-spare-parts of… 2.5 modulars ^^” Those are Cafe Corner, right-half of Market Street and Fire Brigade (I already had a lot of Dark Red bricks and tiles so it was a no-brainer !). Thus, having spent a lot of time and money in the process, I can confirm absolutely everything I just read in this article 😉 From Wanted Lists tips to problems with parts, I went through all of it, so it’s very pleasing and reassuring to know that other people have experienced that.
The first step in putting together an old LEGO set is making sure you can get your hands on the instructions. Some people are happy to just download the instructions to their computer from an online source, others buy the original instruction booklets on BrickLink or eBay. If the set is really valuable, the instruction booklets will be expensive also, so you may just want to stay with downloadable instructions. You can find instructions for all recently released LEGO sets on LEGO’s own website. And there are also other websites that catalog the instructions for older LEGO sets. No matter which way you go, it helps to have the exact LEGO set number to find the instruction you want. The instructions are the key piece of putting together any LEGO set, so before you do anything else you need to make sure you get this.
Yay! Doesn’t that feel good when something comes together like that? Glad you live close enough to a pick-a-brick wall. It’s an hour’s drive either way for me, so I went with the brick box, but still feel better than a set.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Most, if not all, of the sets branded with the same imminent departure label over the Christmas period are long gone by now. Three less widely-available System sets are currently marked as ‘retiring soon’, including two Star Wars Rebels sets, 75158 Rebel Combat Frigate and 75141 Kanan’s Speeder Bike.
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

Surprisingly, the sleek, AT-AT-toppling Snowspeeder is rarer than its space-based brethren the X-Wing Fighter. As one of the early entries in the sought-after Ultimate Collector Series, the Snowspeeder unfortunately doesn’t include a minifigure for Luke Skywalker’s short-lived co-pilot Dak Ralter. Poor Dak.
Let the pieces soak. Leave them to soak for at least ten minutes, then check up on them. If the water is extremely murky, replace it with fresh soapy water and leave to soak for a full hour, or overnight if convenient.
REALITY it’s location, location, location! What has all of our parents said to use at least a 1000 times on your life span???? “If I only kept that box it came in.” Yeah you have the the first two in the series bUT do you have the boxes for them?
➡ LEGO JUNIORS SETS ON SALE: LEGO Juniors is also having a major clearance with nine sets on sale. These are smaller sets in the $10-$25 range, but they are full of interesting parts, colors, minifigs and printed parts. You can find them under the LEGO Juniors section or under Sales and Deals at the Online LEGO Shop.
Holding the record for the biggest LEGO Star Wars model ever made at 5,195 pieces, this space-style Lego set has earned its place in the hearts of all Star Wars and Lego fans around the world. Also included with this set are 5 iconic Star Wars Lego figurines: Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, Han Solo, Chewbacca and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Aye, Lego mateys! When it comes to purchasing this amazing ship, Lego collectors and pirate lovers are ready to ‘walk the plank’ and dive in. Released in 1993, this set includes a large three-masted pirate ship, nine pirate figurines, a rowboat, a shark, and much more. This ship is armed with four cannons that are mounted on turntables that slide from port to starboard. Included on either side of the poop deck are two smaller non-functional cannons.
While you’ll get the same kind of mixed bag at the online Goodwill Store, I think there is a greater chance that you’ll likely get more pieces and here’s the kicker if you are lucky – if you buy it from a location near you, you can just PICK IT UP and NOT PAY FOR SHIPPING those 15+ pounds of LEGO bricks (Sometimes shipping is $20-$30 UGH!)
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!
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.

But I did it for my kids.  Number 1 Son loves LEGOs.  So many children do but do parents and teachers love LEGO too?  Maybe, but how about buying LEGO?  I am not in love with shopping for LEGOs- it’s work!  For one, those sets make me crazy.  They are so expensive and after they fall apart (because no child will let you glue them), there are many pieces that are not open-ended enough to inspire more building.
You can get all the pieces you need by just building up a Wanted List on BrickLink and seeing which shops have the best prices and quantity. You can also get the instruction booklets on BrickLink, or just get the PDF version online.
The gate is approximately inches tall, 5 inches across, and 2.5 inches deep with the drawbridge up. The drawbridge is able to raise and lower via ropes winding around a rod connected to knobs on the side. The gate raises and lowers in a similar fashion, although it does not have the same resistance. A lock is included on the side to keep the gate in one position.
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.

Thank goodness we saved the instructions. That is another money saving tip.  They (or you) can rebuild it if it falls on the floor by accident.   It can be a lot of work but it really prevents me from buying more LEGOs.  It’s good modeling for the kids.  Pictured: LEGO Creator Hillside House
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.
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.
@ suckerpunch83 is right. All sets made by TLG are in production long enough everybody who wants it can get it. There is and always will be a problem with “my personal demand/my finance ratio” and even welthy people can’t afford to buy all sets they want. In polish language there is proverb “life is an art of choice”.
Now you need to go to File > Import > Bricklink Set Inventory. On Category choose [All Items] and on Filter type the Millennium Falcon set number 10179. BOOM. Done. You have a list with all the parts that form this set.
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!

Love the blog, and have almost this entire series (missing the original two). Any idea on what the second exclusive set will be? I’ve got the toy set, and just want to know when the second comes out, so I can place another order!
I’m not sure if what sold out of set #10199 was the end of the 2010 season stock or the rest of the sets. Perhaps the Winter Bakery’s seasonal stock isn’t selling as fast since they were discounted by the Lego brand stores, though they seem to be gone from the NoVa stores. I probably saw the same Toy Shops that Yellowcastle found at the Potomac Mills, VA Lego store this last week.

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..
This classic three-storey town hall building is the latest addition to the LEGO Modular Buildings series. This highly-detailed model features large entrance-way columns and coat of arms, a tall bell tower with clock and a large skylight giving a view inside the building. On the ground floor, the large hall, tax office and auditorium are perfect for servicing the town’s citizens. Take the working elevator up to the secretary and mayor’s offices on the second floor, furnished eloquently with desks, chairs, paintings and even a frog sculpture. There’s even a balcony for addressing the town’s citizens. On the third floor, a spacious meeting room features a large conference table, chairs, globe and plants. Includes 8 minifigures: mayor, secretary, bride and groom, press woman, janitor and 2 children.
I think they are cool, but they are a lot cooler when assembled into a city block. Just don’t want to have 1 or 2 and have it look stupid. Like the corner shops, looks like there are only 2 and they are both retired, so i hope LEGO some more corner shops in the future.
The ShippingPass assortment is continually being optimized. Products are added and removed for lots of reasons, but the main reason is to show items that we’re 100% sure we can deliver within the promised timeline.
Particularly with Lego sets, these manipulative tasks were easier to follow when first done by someone else, rather than simply reading instruction booklets. This is beneficial for the brains of both children and adults, developing new ways of learning and quicker ways of processing instruction.
Select items that are not included in ShippingPass will ship for free but with value shipping. Look for items sold by Walmart.com and marked with FREE shipping. You will also see this noted in checkout.
I was perusing Amazon when I just happened to stumble across this set. I haven’t purchased anything LEGO since I was a kid, a decade and a half ago. However, as an outdoors enthusiast who loves to camp (and would love a camper in real life), I just couldn’t resist the set. And, let me tell you, it blew me away.

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?

Second, I suspect that one reason is that LEGO will have done a lot of market research and testing of their products, and have discovered that in the target market for Technic sets, customers are not especially interested in them, possibly because older children and AFOLs spend less time with make-believe play but are more interested in the engineering apects of the product.
Lego sets also offer a way for adults to learn through experience. Studies have shown, using Lego sets as an example, that the faculties of the mind learn better through example. As such, having someone showing you how to create an object using Legos can stimulate the creativity in your own brain.
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’.

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.
So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Modular Buildings? Do you own any of them? Which one is your favorite? And which one are you planning to get next? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
Accessory elements include Batman, Robin, Batgirl, Alfred Pennyworth and Wicked Witch of the West’s capes, Batman and Batgirl’s molded utility belt, Polka-Dot Man’s helmet and Alfred Pennyworth’s hat.
In October 2014, four sets similar to the Mini Modulars were released as Toys “R” Us exclusives. They are 40180 (Bricktober Theater), 40181 (Bricktober Pizza Place), 40182 (Bricktober Fire Station) and 40183 (Bricktober Town Hall). Despite the similarity of names, they are not mini versions of existing modular buildings; they are new designs. They are simpler builds than the original Mini Modulars, based on 6×8 plates, and each one includes two vehicles; the target age is given as 7 and up.

Lego is the best game to get for your kids and even you might enjoy it to. The quality surpasses many other games for kids, this one won’t break so fast (my other sets lasted me for many years). I also find it to be healthy for their brains because it teaches them to follow instructions and see what they can accomplish with patience.

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.

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.
Legos’ quality has been consistently good since my grandson’s father (my son) first played with them as a little boy. I am always pleased to give Legos as a gift, and pleased that once again, Amazon came through for me!!

TECHNIC did not introduce gears or cross axles. The first gears were introduced in 1965 and were available only in North America as they were manufactured under license by Samsonite.[1] They had round holes in the centre, as the cross axle did not exist.
Bought this Lego set for my nephew. It was his first Lego set and he did so well that he is now hooked and has an incredible Lego collection. Perfect starter set, not too many pieces. He is now building the huge Lego sets all on his own and has a whole 4 tier shelf dedicated to his built Legos.
Now back to Lego. Technic is mostly bought by or for boys. Boys are interested in technical things, but when you think about something technical like a car, that usually doesn’t involve a human being. A Technic figure is, in it’s essence, a doll. It doesn’t have a real role – Technic figure is no police officer or fire-fighter that a boy would really want to identify with. At best (but he’s lacking the uniform), Technic figure could be imagined to be a crane operator, but this sort of role is harder to imagine because of the lack of a uniform.
I never used bricklink. Do people have the bricks needed for this set like bagged up in a ziploc or something? Or would I need to catalog, order and track each piece separately? The latter sounds like more trouble than it’s worth.

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 sets should be played with in combination with other sets.  The older ‘town’ sets embraced this much more than today with interconnecting baseplates and features that crossover.  I wanted to feature a ‘portaloo’ and used the one featured in 60073-1 Service truck to encourage set integration and play.  This Base plate / Connectivity is what people are enjoying about the CREATOR Modular Series.
Mindstorms, a LEGO line of robotic products, also uses a large number of TECHNIC pieces, although it is sold as a separate line of products. Both the Mindstorms NXT (August 2006) and EV3 (2013) are based on the stud-less construction method.
Beams – Beams are long blocks with rows of round holes. All beams are one stud wide, but they can have varying lengths. They constitute the basic structure of the TECHNIC system. Before 2000, the TECHNIC system used TECHNIC bricks, essentially standard bricks with holes along the sides. Beams are part of “studless construction”, which allows TECHNIC models to be more compact. They have rounded edges and no studs.
It’s hard to say what the new piece for 2017 will be. Recently, modular sets for a Library and Natural History Museum were shot down on LegoIdeas.com. Maybe because Lego has it in mind to make those types of buildings next? Also on Lego Ideas, a train station received 10,000 votes and is in the review process (although if approved, that probably wouldn’t be available until 2018). I think a Police Station makes sense, but there is already a lot of police themed lego pieces in the Creator series (plus cops aren’t really getting too much love these days). I think a church is too divisive. If you’re going to include a religious building (and I really don’t see Lego doing this), you’ll have to include a temple, mosque, etc. to be inclusive. I would personally like to see a post office, as many of the modular buildings have mailboxes built into them, and it would make sense to “connect” with that feature. Other thoughts, not on your list would be a restaurant row (maybe a side by side like the Pet Shop and Apartment Building) – one side a Japanese restaurant and the other a pizza place. Also, a Veterinary Hospital (although the Pet Shop covers the animal side of things) would be cool. Also, a Health Club/Gym, Dentist’s Office, Toy Store, Pharmacy, or Ice Cream Parlor are other ideas. I guess a Candy Shop wouldn’t make sense, if candy is “illegal” in the modular world (based on the Detective’s Office).
At the same time #10218 LEGO Creator Pet Shop is shown as backordered with an expected ship date on the 20th. This set you can actually order online, and it will be shipped to you once it becomes available (in my experience usually much before the expected ship date). This set is not yet close to being retired, however if you want it for Christmas, I would suggest you get it now. A lot of LEGO fans shop for the LEGO Modular Buildings around this time of the year (both because of the Double VIP Points Period and also because people tend to buy larger sets for the holidays), causing the most desirable sets to be perpetually out of stock.
I first saw this Lego set on the Lego website and instantly fell in love with it. At first I could not justify the steep price but after a few shots of Lagavulin 16, drunk me thought it was a great idea. This was my first large set that I have constructed and let me tell you, it was a blast to see the ingenuity that went into planning out the design. When I received it in the mail I was as giddy as a 29 year old engineer who likes whiskey and Legos. I opened the box and separated the bags. I pulled the coffee table close as I carefully opened the bags and started my adventure. It took a few hours over a few days to complete but when I was done I felt a sense of pride I had not felt since I thought of giving my leftovers to that homeless person that one time. Best enjoyed with smooth jazz, some candles, and a single malt scotch.
Let your little dude chase down the bad guys in an entirely new way with the Fisher-Price Imaginext DC Batcopter! If he’s a fan of Batman, then this is an absolute must-have gift to go along with his superhero play.
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 of 7905-1 and is fully functional.
For all of you who are fans of the sea, this set is a must have. The coast guard boat is actually very large and quite impressive in person. What is probably most appealing about the large coast guard boat is the fact that it floats (the second smaller green boat floats too). Bath time will never be the same… please note, you may want to avoid applying the stickers in this set if you decide to take either of the two boats that float into the water.

Last week we created a list of must-have movie-themed Lego sets. Now, here’s a list of the most challenging and biggest lego sets, ordered somewhat subjectively but with consideration of total number of pieces combined with level of difficulty. By the way, the number in the parenthesis represents the Item Number in case you decide to go on a hunt for one of these Lego sets.
I’ve resisted the modulars, until a week ago when I caved in and ordered the Fire Brigade. I’ve no doubt that I’ll also buy the Emporium and the Pet Shop now too. As for whether I go back and collect the rest, I’m not sure yet, I think I’ll just keep an eye out and if a bargain comes up I’ll probably get it.
There are a lot of reasons that LEGO might stop producing a set, and I would assume it’s a balance between the cost of doing production runs of the necessary pieces, the projected volume of sales, and their availability of SKUs.

In late 2007, a new motor system was released. It was named Power Functions, and was first used in the set 8275 Motorized Bulldozer. The system consisted of a set of motors, two infrared receivers, a battery box, and an infrared remote control. One receiver would connect to the battery box, and the other would connect to the motors.

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 Cafe Corner (set # 10182) has been retired for quite a while now, so sets are hard to come by and quite expensive, but still one of the best in the series. The Cafe Corner was the first released in the series and did not come furnished but it probably has the highest level of architectural detail of all of the modular buildings. With enough pieces, you can even duplicate the second floor to make the hotel as many stories high as you want! Of course, the fact that it is not furnished is really not a drawback either as you can always decorate the interior they way you want too!
I have the new redesigned Mini Cooper box, bought it a month ago. Had no idea the box had changed. I can imagine we’ll have it available for quite some time. It’s not a set that we should worry about for in the next couple of months…
These sets are NOT overpriced. Most of these sets are constructed of rare bricks and colors. They provide a very fun building experience that is rivaled by few sets. These sets are not hollow, but are complete with interiors and with the latter sets being completely furnished.

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.
You can also buy Lego Harry Potter mini-figures individually on eBay or BrickLink if those are what the kids are really in love with. While one Harry Potter figure might still set you back $15 plus shipping (at the cheap end), that’s a lot cheaper than buying a whole set. Again, figures tend to be more expensive on eBay due to the auction effect.

LEGO traditionally retires the oldest LEGO Modular Building amongst the currently available sets right around August/September, before a new model gets added to the collection at the beginning of the following year. Retiring a set means that LEGO is not making any more, and whatever stock is left will be sold until all the sets are gone. In the case of most of the previous LEGO Modular Buildings, the remaining sets sold out so fast that it caught people by surprise and they had to turn to the secondary market to purchase them for much higher prices. The currently available LEGO Modular Buildings are as follows:
Then one day one of my friends recommended a “natural remedy” doctor. ‘Oh great!’ I thought. A witch doctor who’s going to put some fake voodoo hex on my feet and tell me it hurts. No thanks. I’d rather go to a regular doctor who will hurt me the old fashioned way. But I decided to give it a try.
I think you would have to look at it in an entrepreneur/business man’s point of view to understand it. If people aren’t buying enough of the sets to keep a good profit after a few years, Lego might find that they would make more money using the same pieces if they were to discontinue the set and release a new one people would buy more of. If you already have an old set that is still on the market, there wouldn’t be much point in buying a second or third. (assuming its for personal use.)
It has 4 floors, the exterior is fully decorated while the interior has only stairs included. Fits nicely into a modular city (see last photos with other buildings for height reference) especially as …

Content curtesy of 20+ years of my own Lego experience with historical details and specific data researched from Lego books, sites, etc. Many of the photos are of my own collection while the rest were sourced from Amazon (our affiliate status gives us access to these) as well as public domain images from other sources/Lego friends around the world. Any “artwork” created by individual Lego artists is specifically identified.
Following the included instructions and using pieces in the starter kit, kids can build a house, helicopter, dog, and car. The only flaw is that the instructions may be challenging for younger children, and require adult assistance.
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!
It has all been washed and is ready to play with. Lego 800 Mixed Bricks, Parts. All international will go International Signed For. This depends on the bricks in the bag. An estimate would be; 500 parts are 700-800g and 200 parts are 300-400g.

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.
Would buy again, and recommend for Lego lovers. Are they over-priced…. well, maybe. Legos are not cheap, and they have escalated the pricing a bit as the popularity increases… so some are not happy about that. Me? If I did not want to pay the price, then I would not buy them. One thing for sure, resale is good – that says a lot!!

Market Street is a unique set in the Modular Buildings series in that it has fewer than 2000 pieces and is recommended for builders 10 years and up rather than the usual 16. One of the reasons this set was smaller than the others was to provide a lower cost entry point into the Modular Buildings series.[10] Also, until 2018’s Downtown Diner, it was the only ostensible Modular Building set to have minifigures that didn’t all bear the classic-smile-only face.
Just like with Lego’s Architecture set outlined above, the Creator Expert kits are a series of Lego sets that sets their sights on recreating cars and other real-world items inside of a Lego universe, complete with the same amount of care, quality, and technical specification we’ve seen from other Lego sets. If you’re more of a car enthusiast than a history nerd, you’ll want to check out Lego’s line of vehicles within their Creator Expert series. There are plenty of choices here to choose from, but one of our favorites just so happens to match a classic Italian sports car, the Ferrari F40. This is a set designed to catch your eye and hold it, especially if you’re a fan of European vehicles. Lego’s built car sets before, but none of them have been quite as well-built or cleanly-constructed as what you’ll find in the Creator Expert Ferrari F40 kit. Let’s take a look.
My view is that the modular buildings are must-haves for AFOLs. They are expensive, but they are beautiful. If you think you might want to collect them, buy the current ones now before they are discontinued. As you say, they skyrocket in price once they are no longer available from LEGO direct.
The Joker Steamroller is a much smaller set, with only 486 pieces, but it’s hard to pass up considering how much it comes with. It has 5 minifigures: Batman, Batgirl, Robin, The Joker and a Joker goon (with their own assorted weapons), and two highly detailed vehicles: The Joker’s Steam Roller and the Batwing. The Steam Roller is 5” tall, 7” long and 6” wide, and comes with a unique ‘chunky roller’, flickable laughing gas bombs and, of course, a big smile. The Batwing is 3” high, 11” long and 7” wide, with four flick-missiles, an opening cockpit and attack-mode sweeping wings. It can be found on Amazon for under $60 .
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.
For starters, this set consists of 1,123 pieces in the tricky Technic mold. On top of that, there’s an electronic element and lots of moving parts. Getting this baby to roll, twist, and excavate like it’s supposed to is no easy task. It also takes no less than 12 batteries to get the thing moving.

With these sets it is possible to build or convert manually-operated mechanical movement to motorized using electric motors which are controlled via switches or IR remote control. Future plans for this set include more parts which will add even more function/control possibilities.[citation needed]. Lego has already started to design and sell Lego Technic models (sets) which can be easily retrofitted with the Power Functions system. For example, models like the 8294 Excavator and 8295 Telescopic Handler are sold like classic Lego Technic models with manual motorization but are designed with free space for the Power Functions components with factory instructions on how to perform the conversion to an electrically operated model.
BEST LEGO SET EVER!!! There is absolutely nothing bad I can say about this set I have been a Batman fan for YEARS and love all three of the movies staring Christian Bale and this set looks EXACTLY like the tumbler in the movies. There are many points of interest that I chould go over but i’ll focus on three. 1). The thing when fully built IS HUGE for a Lego set and is as heavy as a brick the back tires alone are pretty big. 2).THE MINIFIGS ARE A HUGE PLUS the Joker minifig is so awesome and I love how detailed His face is, Batman is the same as in some sets from a few years ago but I didnt have one until i got this set 3). Awesome in general

This will be one of my favorites. I was unable to get this item from LEGO directly and I was very disappointed. I was looking for something else on Amazon and decided to look for the Mobile Crane on a whim. There it was and the price was not much above the original LEGO price <$20.00. Perfect. I has great engineering - the gear work is a marvel. I also enjoy the second item - the Reach Stacker - a lot of fun to build. 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) There were not enough of the thin blocks. The building plate was large enough, but it can only be used as a base plate. if you ever needed a large plate to complete the roof of something, you aren't going to find it in this kit. You are bidding on a discontinued and hard to find new lego technic super car 8070. This item is a brand new, in its original box and has never been opened or played with before. The box may have minor shelf wear/ imperfect corners, but most of them will be in generally good condition.

I didn’t really use them much, discovering their existence after they had already been discontinued. But, my interest in Lego robotics leads me to an irrational nostalgia for the sets. Some information positions them as part of the Mindstorms line, though I don’t see how they really relate. So many features for this Lego Technic Unimog Trial Truck, an excellent climber with a lot of power as well. The creator is "PunkTacoNYC" and we must say that this is one of the best Lego MOC we've ever seen. Enjoy!!! 😀 “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. It’d be hard to argue against Lego’s Star Wars Collector’s Millennium Falcon as being one of the most challenging and largest Lego sets (it also probably ranks as our #1 LEGOs for adults). The $499 Millennium Falcon is suggested for ages 16-years and older but younger kids can probably get through it with some supervision. The highly detailed scale model is made up of a whopping 5,195 pieces but only 5 mini-figures including Luke, Princess Leia, Han, Chewbacca, and a stormtrooper. Why the set doesn’t include C-3PO and R2-D2 mini-figures is sort of a mystery (weren’t they on the Falcon during the mission to rescue Leia?), but nevertheless the ship itself is more than enough to focus on. The Collector’s Millennium Falcon was released in 2007 and retired in 2010, but remains the most-expensive mass-produced Lego set to date. - Condition : 9.5/10, Box is sealed in protective sheet since day 1 - Self collection at lakeside MRT, Delivery to other MRT - $5 Help Batman™ and Robin repel the villains from the Batcave featuring a false bookcase, Batpoles, Bat Lab with Batcomputer, plus a Batmobile, Batcopter and 9 minifigures. Fly high above Gotham City in the Batwing and battle against Harley Quinn with Batman and Robin in this cool THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE: The Batwing set. The Batwing features an opening dual minifigure cockpit for Batman and Robin, rotating boosters, adjustable wings for flight and landing modes, 2 spring-loaded shooters, 2 disc shooters and an opening rear compartment with a car inside. Harley Quinn has a mobile cannon with a 6-stud rapid shooter. Includes 3 minifigures with weapons and accessory elements including Batman's Batarang and Harley's hammer. Lego's Ninjago series has exploded in popularity over the last few years among tweens. After showing a pilot episode in 2011 and releasing some popular sets throughout the year, a companion Lego Ninjago series began airing regularly on Cartoon Network in 2012, and the entire line of Ninjago products exploded with popularity. Since then, there's been nearly a hundred different Ninjago products of varying size and age group status, as well as graphic novel adaptations, several video game adaptations, battle toys outside of the Lego line, and an upcoming feature-length theatrical film feature voice actors like Dave Franco and Jackie Chan. Needless to say, Ninjago has blown up in popular culture—and if you have a son or daughter around the right age, you've probably heard of the products. If you're looking to take advantage of the popularity of the series for something to do with your kid, our favorite Ninjago kit is the Temple of Airjitzu. At $200, it isn't cheap, but it also has just over 2,000 pieces in the set, along with twelve minifigures. It's not just a great Lego set to build—it's a great playset for your kid, too.

If you listen to designer Jamie Berard talking about the Modulars, it's clear that one of the objectives is to employ novel building techniques and use pieces in unusual ways as much to teach AFOLs new ways of building as it is to "surprise and delight" us (as he himself says in one of his videos). It's also a way of sneaking unusual colours back onto the palate in greater quantities - remember all that Sand Green in Green Grocer, Medium Blue in Market Street, and then there's Sand Blue in Pet Shop. This is I believe very much a deliberate move to "delight" AFOLs. Finally, I would also challenge your assertion that they're overpriced; in so much as ALL LEGO is expensive you're correct, but compared with many other sets the parts to price ratio is a bit of a steal. The pneumatic elements are most commonly used to resemble and take the function of hydraulic cylinders in appropriate models, actuating a digging arm or crane, for example. They can, however, also be used to build a pneumatic engine, which converts air pressure into rotary motion using the same principles as a steam engine. However, the cylinders are not optimised for this purpose, and such engines tend to be slow and lack power unless the cylinder inlets are enlarged.
