Lego helpfully make all of their instruction sheets downloadable for free from Lego.com. (This doesn’t stop people on eBay trying to sell the instruction booklets for a  good price, however. Buyer beware!)  If you have a good supply of Lego bricks already, you could start by downloading the plans of a coveted Harry Potter set, and see how many of the pieces you already have. Probably most of them, but the colors might not be exact. But here’s the thing: don’t get caught up with being exact. Kids don’t let a desire for 100% accuracy get in the way of play. One of my daughter’s friends saw the multi-colored Hogwarts we built and exclaimed “A rainbow castle! How cool!” That reminded me kids aren’t as uptight as adults about collecting or having things perfect.
Another beautiful landmark in LEGO form here, thanks to the expert-level LEGO Creator range. This Sydney Opera House build measures up at 2,989 pieces. The shape of the building itself, with all its angled walls, makes this a hefty challenge even for a seasoned master builder.

Lego did not become the largest toy manufacturer in the world by chance. They create what are quite possibly the most universal toys on the market. Most people out of infancy have the ability to stack two Lego bricks together, and the result is usually a creative impulse that can, conveniently enough, only be solved through acquiring more Legos.
A sequel to the first Lego Batman called Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released in 2012 and included other DC Comics characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, most of them appearing towards the end of the story.
This LEGO Creator incarnation of London’s Tower Bridge is an absolute beauty. And with it’s 4,287 pieces and moving parts (the bottom bit of the bridge opens up, of course), it’s definitely not a walk in the park. It does come with a cute little London bus, though, and promises one hell of a sense of achievement to any who manage to master it.
Save the day with the LEGO City Coast Guard 4×4 and Diving Boat. Launch the boat, put on the diving gear and splash into the water. Use the megaphone to direct the diver as he makes the rescue. Then, radio back to shore with the walkie-talkie. Includes 2 minifigures: a driver and a rescue diver.
The LEGO company at that stage had no idea how much it cost to manufacture the majority of their bricks, they had no idea how much certain sets made. The most shocking finding was about sets that included the LEGO micro-motor and fiber-optic kits — in both cases it cost LEGO more to source these parts then the whole set was being sold for — everyone of these sets was a massive loss leader and no one actually knew. This was combined with a decision to ‘retire’ a large number of the LEGO Designers who had created the sets from the late 70’s through the 80’s and into the 90’s and replace them with 30 ‘innovators’ who were the top graduates from the best design colleges around Europe. Unfortunately, though great designers they knew little specifically about toy design and less about LEGO building. The number of parts climbed rapidly from 6000 to over 12,000 causing a nightmare of logistics and storage and a huge amount of infrastructure expansion for no gain in sales. Products like Znap, Primo, Scala and worst; Galidor all came out of this period.
However, what I think would really be good is a hardware store. With all the dozens of tool accessories available it would be excellent. Racks of axes, mops, buckets, brooms, tool boxes, plungers, pitch forks, paint rollers, trolley jacks, wrenches and hammers.
I can see now that the most pricey element is the Certificate of Authenticity, for a whooping US$ 800. Let’s remove that, I’m not creating an authentic piece. Next it’s a Sticker Set for the Falcon holder, at US$ 170. Let’s get rid of that.
The F40 is more of a collectors set than an actual toy to play with, making it ideal for adults to destress and decompress with Lego sets after a difficult day at the office. Unlike the Capitol Building set, Ferrari’s F40 probably isn’t so much a learning experience to share with your children, though if you’re looking to teach your children about the history of non-American sports cars, it’s an excellent entry and might interest the racecar lover in your life. We really love the F40 set from Lego; it’s small, but complex enough to keep you busy for hours and hours. It doesn’t come at a cheap price, but if you can afford to drop a pretty penny on Lego sets, this is a fine one to add to your collection—or to gift to the gearhead in your life.
In 1997, LEGO introduced the Air Tank, which acts like a battery, storing compressed air so even more powerful pneumatic circuits can be created. This piece is very popular with the enthusiast community, but many feel that it was underutilised by LEGO, as it only appeared in 3 model sets and a parts pack. This tank is now only available at the LEGO Education Store, along with a new manometer part.
Love this camper set! Really cool for an adult collector. Unique pieces make this a must have. Would give 5 star rating if i felt the price / value ratio was slightly better, but still absolutely love this set. The side window on the camper offers a view of the extreme detail inside the camper. I get many compliments from adults on this set – and that is who i think should buy this set. Children may find the camper underwhelming so for the price might be better to avoid if you are buying for a youngster. Overall, i love this set, it fits in beautifully with an outdoor / camping scene, would prefer more pieces or a slightly lower price, would not recommend for children.
As to Green Grocer, Cafe Corner and Market Street, I missed those as I honestly didn’t care… and Cafe Corner would or could be the only one I’d regret and pine for some days. Such is life. I do have other themes I’m “gunning” for to collect and I’ll be looking to see what I can afford in the long term.
My 8 year old son got this for his birthday and loved it. It went together pretty easily for him. It is a little slow moving but works beautifully. Maybe a little pricey for the use that it will get, but otherwise a winner.
This set is an overall great value from Lego. Also, it is one of only two corner buildings in the modular series so far, so if you want to make a square block, you’ll have to pick up a couple of these since the other corner unit (Cafe Corner) is no longer available unless you’re willing to spend $1,500+ on eBay.

10185 Green Grocer was the third modular building and is a highly sought after set by collectors. Released before the modular building series became as popular as it is today, the Green Grocer commands a very high price today for both sealed and used examples that will likely only continue to rise.

The very reason people are scrambling to collect the sets after they have been retired is because they didn’t do so while they were in production, for any multitude of reasons. As an example, some of the Star Wars UCS sets — 10143 Death Star, for example — were discounted by LEGO for many months before they was discontinued. If the stock was really flying off the shelves, that wouldn’t have been the case.
I think you’d find that because of specilist parts that are in the UCS models, that as has been said before, require special molds, it wouldn’t be worth carrying on production. They need to modernise after all. So if something’s new then sacrifice something old for it surely ? 🙂
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.
@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)…. so 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.
We’re aiming to roll out more retired LEGO Modular Buildings in the near future. If you tune into our social media pages in the coming months, expect to see sneak peeks, and hear our LEGO designers reintroduce these sets again in a brand new format.
Yes, they are challenging builds that use interesting techniques that you can replicate on other builds. Also the number of brick pieces that comes with a 4 walled building is the best part. Like you, i enjoy building cities and these take up a good chunk of real estate. Once you have one modular you can just line up base plates and build beside it. IMO spend your money on new bricks, at a good price, instead of going back for the old ones and paying .40,.50 cents per piece

OTHER INFLUENCES. I often browse what other people are building and sometimes it informs my process.  I make no secret of this.  Much like the ‘portaloo’ is lifted from a Lego set (Service Truck 60073-1) there are other elements of the build that have roots in other ideas.  The cement mixer used by the BRICKLAYER is from set 5610-1 (a small set from 2008 – now it has a home) I also came across some brilliant vignettes on LEGO IDEAS.
Well 10199 Toy Shoppe was also ‘sold out’ at the middle of last year and it came back before the beginning of the 2010 holiday shopping season.. my gut feeling is it is gone for good now, with the bakery hanging around for two years.This also brings into question Lego ‘official’ discontinued time line provided…
I also have one pet peeve that is common today… that notch of missing plastic in the macaroni bricks…. I hate it… and that notch is found in so many specialized parts of today. It seems that nearly every new part made today “has to be able to attach to a baseplate”…. like the macaroni bricks…. and therefore has that notch of missing plastic.
Just something that’s always made me wonder. The Technic figures from the Competition line and other Technic sets were very good figures IMO. They had great pose ability for the time and they acted as your pilots for you Technic vehicles. I know some later Technic sets could have been better with a Technic figure added. So why did Lego stop making them?
Bane’s drill, though not really in character for him, is really, really cool. When you roll it, the drill part moves. The bat cycle included isn’t as nice as the one from the Funhouse set, but still good to have.
Lego obtained the license to produce sets based on all available mediums in which Batman appears. Lego released a line of Batman sets in June 2008 to tie in (albeit indirectly) with the release of The Dark Knight. However, these sets do not directly reflect sequences or scenarios in the film, unlike most of Lego’s other movie tie-in lines with all Batman sets. Sets include villains from TV shows and movies.[1]

Later, I found the Town Hall and from what I saw online I LOVED the set, and therefore bought it. I recently just built both sets and now I am hooked on the modular buildings. I’ve limited myself to exclusively collecting them (with only a couple cheats allowed on the side). I picked up the Palace Cinema this weekend and will now go in order from there buying the Persian Restaurant in January with some Christmas money and then the Detective’s Office later next year.
Love the Batman and Penguin Mini-figs. The set was simple to build – took less than an hour. The Penguin’s Duck Vehicle is well done, but the Batman water jet thingy is rather disappointing. The large gap between the nose and rear is kind of strange – held by to bars with a large gap of nothingness in between.. Batman has no place to sit/stand, particularly while he’s wearing the included flippers. You can however, clip has hands to the handle bars while his body is suspended from behind (kind of odd). The two robot penguins holding dynamite sticks are pretty cool, but they have no place to lock in, so they have to simply rest upright on the simulated ice. One sneeze and they’ll topple.
Keep the wheels of commerce turning with the authentic Town Hall! Build the authentic 3-story Town Hall, the latest addition to the LEGO® Modular Buildings series! This highly detailed model features large entranceway columns, a coat of arms, a tall bell tower with clock and a large skylight that lets you see inside! On the ground floor, the large hall, tax office and auditorium have everything you need to run the town. Take the working elevator up to the secretary and mayor’s offices on the second floor, realistically furnished with desks, chairs, paintings and even a frog sculpture. Hold a meeting and address the town’s citizens at the podium! On the third floor, a spacious meeting room features a large conference table, chairs, globe and plants.

The 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.
My son wanted this set basically for the Chase McCain mini figure (considering the cost of this set, versus Chase McCain alone, this set was a better option), but the set as a whole is great. It was fun to put together and holds up really well. The cop car is great with the trunk that opens to store the cops “tools”. Also the tire-stoppers are fun too.
Earlier this year, LEGO began to update the retail box designs for their Creator Expert theme of sets. This has become a talking point among many LEGO collectors and investors who have been wondering what exactly this means, and how it may affect the retirement dates of particular sets. The new logo is made up of six 1×1 angular bricks arranged in a continuously connecting pattern reminiscent of a LEGO MC Escher painting. The new logo made its debut with the release of 2015’s 10248 Ferrari F40 and has since unified the Creator Expert lineup box logos… almost. A mass redesign of boxes for available sets is an unprecedented move by LEGO, so nobody knows for certain what exactly the meaning is behind this move, but reasonable deductions can possibly be inferred from it.

The 3rd image takes those same railing fence pieces, and along with some of those (now rare and pricey) Belville “gingerbread” arches… made a Victorian Gazebo with them. This time I didn’t use any of the sticker parts to hide the “notches”. I sent this image to Jamie Berard 2 years ago (after he ordered my LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide on CD)… and he really liked it… but said that his team of designers were NOT allowed to mix in Belville parts with their designs. I do believe that this restriction has since been lifted… but wouldn’t this make a nice addition in a park adjacent to the Victorian row of designer models?? All it needs is some minifigs, trees… and maybe a minifig brass band! 🙂
-the box was a little bit dented, but for an item that’s out of production that can happen. I don’t keep my boxes, anyway, so I didn’t feel the need to ding the rating, but for those who do, just know that damage to the box is a very real possibility.
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.)

For Lego collectors seeking the best and most expensive Lego sets, this set is one to get your hands on. One customer wrote, “This is my favorite so far. It was great seeing this fully [built] and sitting majestically on the cabinet. My friend suggested it may need some lights. Next time I put it together I may try adding a few light bricks inside so there will be a bit of a glow from it.” He may be referencing the fact that the Taj Mahal takes on different hues according to the time of the day; a pinkish color in the morning, a milk white in the evening, and a golden color at night.

So what do these box redesigns tell us about the modular buildings series? Well, the simplest conclusion to draw is that the Palace Cinema, Parisian Restaurant, and Detective’s Office are here to stay and the Pet Shop is likely retiring soon. After all, why would LEGO update the boxes of sets just to retire them immediately after? And similarly, why would the Pet Shop be the lone modular using an old box design?
Colethegeek…. when Brickworld (Chicago) had their first LEGO convention (2008?) a few years ago (I couldn’t attend because my mother was very ill)… I had one of the attendees ask the question (to Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen and the new LEGO President) about the very poor “System” in LEGO windows at the time… and the reply from them was that the LEGO design team had the same issue with the lack of usable windows…. and that they would be working on a system. So far the 1x2x2 and 1x2x3 flat front windows are the result… along with the back side of those “less than flattering” headlight bricks, which have already been out for many years.

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. 
@rocao… I shouldn’t have said “overpriced”…. I should have used the term “more expensive”…. generally (if the buildings were of solid LEGO) the 2x factor would have lead to a price 8 times (2 to the 3rd power) as much. But since these are hollow structures, a price difference of 4 times would be more appropriate.

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)

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.
One more themed set before we finish up our list, and what would we be without mentioning one of the newest Lego sets out, celebrating the new Pirates of the Caribbean movie, Dead Men Tell No Tales. While previous Pirates sets have focused on the set pieces from their respective movies, Lego’s flagship (pun intended) set for this year’s release is one of the best we’ve seen yet. Silent Mary is the name of one of the newest ships from the film, and Lego have gone above and beyond in recreating this destructible, decaying set. The entire piece comes with eight minifigures, two ghost sharks (as seen prominently in the trailers for the film), and a rowboat used in the film by Jack Sparrow and his two new friends, Henry and Carina. From the cannons to the three masts of the ship, it’s an excellent build, measuring in at 26 inches long and 18 inches high, and including nearly 2,300 pieces for fun building excitement. We’re big fans of the appearances of masts and the wrecked sales, so if you’re a Pirates fan—or you love ships—you’re sure to have fun building this massive set.

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.

Early TECHNIC motors used the standard 4.5V system, interchangeable with the Trains theme and consisted of a large brick with a small protruding axle. When the motor is activated, the axle rotates. From 1990 onward, this was changed to the 9V system in line with other LEGO themes. The output rotation has a high RPM, but low torque, so it cannot be used to turn heavy objects without additional gears. Later motors contained a hole into which an axle of any length can be inserted.

Start a High Speed Chase through the streets of Lego City when the burglar escapes in his super fast sports car. He won’t get far with the stolen cash when Chase McCain is on duty. Chase him with the Elite Police vehicle and Elite Police motorcycle. Then take a shortcut to block the road with a tire-shredding spike strip that will send the speeding villain spinning out of control. Includes unique code to unlock special missions and vehicles in the Lego City Undercover video game. Includes 3 minifigures: Chase McCain, a burglar and an Elite Police rider with handcuffs.
Using Lego bricks also supports fine-tuned motor functions, hand eye coordination, and creativity, and it allows children and adults alike the opportunity to lose themselves in their own imaginations. This play time is critically important, as we know that a lack of play can lead to developmental issues and have very negative effects on proper brain development.
Brilliant to use the shield as a trowel for the BRICKLAYER. I’ve lifted the idea for a carpenter’s workstation and changed it a bit.  I’ve created a workbench on the mezzanine floor inspired by this idea.  Also the ‘plate compactor’ being used on the pavement is from 7746-1 from 2009.
It looks like an RV. This isn’t one of the blocky, square, thrown-together-in-eight-steps vehicles I remember from my childhood; this is a vehicle that you’d be excused for mistaking it as real at first glance. The lines are fluid and very RV-like, and the decals not only match the green and dark tan lines on the sides but look like they could very easily be the decals gracing a real-life RV. The hanging side mirrors are also a very clever touch. But, for all its realism, it hasn’t lost any playability. I would have loved this set as a kid. The side swings open and the top pops off for ease of play, the canoe fits securely on the top, and I absolutely love the design of the double bed in the “back”. The cab can easily be modded so that the driver is on the right side instead of the left, for our fellow LEGO fans across the pond. As you can see in the photo I’ve uploaded, all of the canoe paraphernalia (the oars and lifejackets) fit in the roof compartment. (My set came with three oars instead of the expected two, I suppose in case I lost or broke one.) The canoe itself is also extremely well manufactured — a solid block of plastic, it’s shaped like a canoe and is very sturdy, not flimsy at all, and could easily fit three minifigs instead of just the included two. Speaking of minifigs, the included couple is cute, with very attractive “outdoorsy” outfits and dynamic facial expressions.
Speaking of tough-to-tackle Technic kits, the Mobile Crane Mk II is hardly a cake walk either. This 2,606-piece set actually includes more than one challenge: It’s two models in one, allowing the builder to choose the big crane on the box or a couple of smaller ones. Again, moving pieces are involved as well as batteries. This is the type of set where one small mistake to could have you scratching your head for hours. What fun!
3) If possible, use gurobi [1] (The overall fastest and best supported solver available) to solve the optimization problem of finding the least number of stores with the lowest prices for all the parts you need. Without gurobi you’ll have to do a greedy approach (more expensive) or brute force (takes forever) method to solve the optimization problem.
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.

Safety first. On the cinema, I think it looks better in build (love the roof) than in the picture. Also, how could one live as a Lego builder without “Forever Sorting” Lighting it up (BrickLoot) really adds a lot, too. The BrickLoot lighting for the bank really really makes the model, imho. And, no, I do not work for Brickloot, but I am really glad I decided to experiment with lighting

When the first set in the series, Café Corner, was released, the designer indicated that more sets would follow in the series only if sales of the first set were successful.[1] In a later interview in 2008 covering the third set in the series, Green Grocer, the designer indicated that sales had been strong enough to support four sets in the series (referring to the planned 2009 release of Fire Brigade as the fourth set).[10]

Why? I am a 100% serious. This is one of the most enlightening Technic sets that I have touch. When you build it you have the sense of understanding. You are one with the LEGO. And what the hell… the experience only cost 9€. You must read my review of the Model A and Model B.
It’s becoming more and more well-known: grownups love LEGOs too! Over the past few years, the sets available to us “big kids” are becoming more elaborate and frankly, quite impressive. This growing trend inspired us to create the top 10 best LEGO sets for grown-ups, a comprehensive list featuring the coolest adult-worthy sets of today.
@Istokg: I don’t understand your argument that the Modulars (in minifig scale) are overpriced when compared to 70s and earlier era Town Plan scale sets. Yes, they are priced more, but that doesn’t mean they are overpriced (priced higher than their value). The larger scale translates to more pieces, which allows for greater detail. The difference in price is a result of a tangible, concrete increase in bricks.

So what do these box redesigns tell us about the modular buildings series? Well, the simplest conclusion to draw is that the Palace Cinema, Parisian Restaurant, and Detective’s Office are here to stay and the Pet Shop is likely retiring soon. After all, why would LEGO update the boxes of sets just to retire them immediately after? And similarly, why would the Pet Shop be the lone modular using an old box design?
The DC Collectibles Batman: Arkham Knight Action Figure is based on the designs of the hit Warner Brothers Interactive/Rocksteady video game. Perfect for the older kids to add to their collection, it stands at 6.75” and it’s highly detailed to suit the wants of super fans.
The old Technic figures were scale restrictive. Today you can build a truck r car at many different scales … not sure TLG wants to build a properly scaled figure for each of the scales … The HUGE collection of technic tire sizes is already pretty …. ‘annoying’ … or maybe not necessary.
Continuing the LEGO Modular Buildings series, this highly detailed, 3-story Pet Shop building and townhouse with full internal and external detailing is the perfect addition to your LEGO town. Greet customers with a menagerie of pets and let them treat them with a selection of toys and supplies. The pet shop building features a hinged staircase for easy access, upper apartment with kitchenette and upper loft overlooking the open plan interior below. To the side, the tastefully appointed townhouse features a detailed ground floor with accessories and spiral staircase leading to the upper floor. The attic space features storage boxes and French doors leading out to an elegant front balcony, while the rooftop garden, complete with fresh vegetables, brightens up the rear of the building.

My son wanted this set basically for the Chase McCain mini figure (considering the cost of this set, versus Chase McCain alone, this set was a better option), but the set as a whole is great. It was fun to put together and holds up really well. The cop car is great with the trunk that opens to store the cops “tools”. Also the tire-stoppers are fun too.

We have included all of the sets below for you to see with both exterior and interior photos. If you are looking to begin or add to a Lego modular series, keep in mind that some of these are already retired and others will continue to retire as time goes on. Once retired, sets are very difficult (and expensive) to acquire.

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.
Features a LEGO Power Functions motor for an array of motorized functions, including forward and reverse driving, rotating bucket wheel, moving conveyor belts and rotating superstructure, plus a working bucket wheel boom.
As we mentioned up top, using Lego sets to connect with your kids as you build and assemble sets and series can be a ton of fun for both you and them. One major problem with our sets so far: some kids might just not be interested in cars or architecture. It’s only natural for children to grow into their own interests as they age, so if you want to try connecting with something almost every child loves at some point, you should try some of our Lego Star Wars sets we’ve collected within this list. The first of our three entries involves one of the most notable, important ships from the entire franchise: the Millennium Falcon. Han Solo’s classic light freighter was recreated when Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out, and this particular set includes figures for Han, Chewie, Rey, Finn, and everyone’s favorite droid, BB-8, plus a couple other characters you might remember from a fun scene within the film. The set’s a bit pricey at $117, but with over 1,300 pieces, it’ll keep you busy for hours to come. Bonus: if you can find it for a reasonable price online (read: under $1,000), the Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon was a limited-run item from a few years ago that was massive and came with over 5,000 pieces. It’s neat, but for the price, you’re better off with the cheaper model.

The Bike Shop & Cafe is a decent build from what I’ve heard. I helped build some of one set, but it isn’t mine personally. The cool aspect about this set is buying a few and making a whole apartment complex, think about the Brownstones in Harlem! Change the bike shop to a computer repair place.

My son has spatial dyslexia and enjoys building with legos. He really likes to get the sets, but I find that I do most of the building and he does most of the fretting because he can’t see what he needs to do.
Why? Are you kidding? Just look how cool it looks, I couldn’t but buy it. Also it has IR remote control, two L Motors and one of the new servo motors ( no more rubber bands on the steering ). Read my review of this fantastic set here.

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 F40 set is, in many ways, similar to what is included with the Architecture. The entire design of the car is well-executed, with the replica of the F40 being as accurate as a Lego set can be. Despite the relatively small-size—the set measures in at 3″ tall, 10″ long, and 5″ wide when built, weighing in at about 3 pounds or so—Lego has done everything in their power to build a set that accurately and faithfully recreates the F40. The set features a rear spoiler, body-work including the standard Ferrari logo, pop-up headlights, air intakes along the side of the vehicle, and a rear hatch complete with vents that opens to reveal the classic twin-turbocharged, 90 degree V8 engine known around the world for powering Ferrari’s legendary limited-run coupe. The vehicle build even has doors that can be opened, crafted door handles to match the original, a steering wheel, and two internal seats. The front of the model is protected by a clear windshield piece, and both an actionable hood and spinning tires make the car feel all the more real. Even with that small size, the car is built with over 1,100 pieces, an impressive number that is sure to keep multitudes of car lovers busy for hours and hours building.
When the button is pressed the Batman logo is projected onto any surface while the other side is used for normal writing and drawing; a nice, ballpoint black ink pen. It may not be the best idea (or distraction) when it comes to school supplies, but it’s a great idea to encourage creativity and pretend play at home.

Although this set is relatively expensive for the number of pieces contained within (compared to the Lego average), the pieces tend to be larger ones, and the unique figures certainly justify the additional cost. This is a fantastic set for kids who want to re-enact the movie scene or are otherwise looking for a play-heavy set (the construction is durable and will hold up to enthusiastic play), or for Star Wars fans who want to build this set for display. If you’re going to get one current non-ship Star Wars set, this should be it. Recommended for everyone who loves Star Wars and Lego, especially if you can get this set at a discount.

@ 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”.
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.
Rinse and dry bricks once color is restored. This typically takes about four to six hours. This time varies depending on the strength of the sunlight and the age of the hydrogen peroxide. Once done, transfer the bricks to a colander, rinse them, and air dry.

Star Wars fans are no joke. They live, breathe and would eat all-things Star Wars if they can! In 1999, LEGO started to make Star Wars sets and figures and since then, these sets have become hot items for collectors. For the past 12 years, there have been more than 200 sets, and some of them have pretty high price tags, selling for well over $1,000. Since there are too many to list, we thought we’d feature 22 of the coolest Star Wars LEGO sets around!
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
I do not pay attention to it. When I think of retiring soon, I think that the set will EOL in the next week to month. From what I am seeing, Lego puts the retiring soon label just to sell more of that specific set, with no indication that the set will retire soon. Also, they keep the label on for forever. I have seen labels on some sets for months, and they say that the set is retiring soon. Let’s rethink that.
➡ ONLINE LEGO SHOP SALES & DEALS: A number of the older LEGO Dimensions packs are on sale, but this is not particularly a new development. You can buy most LEGO Dimensions packs at about half price both directly from LEGO and at other retailers. What is more interesting is that several newly released larger sets are on sale as well, with 20% off the regular price. This includes the #21127 LEGO Minecraft The Fortress, the #70322 LEGO Nexo Knights Axl’s Tower Carrier, and the #41067 LEGO Disney Princess Belle’s Enchanted Castle. Other notable sets on sale are some of the LEGO Nexo Knights Ultimate Knight packs, and the #40203 LEGO Vampire and Bat Halloween set. Also, the #41068 LEGO Disney Princess Arendelle Castle Celebration, and the #41066 LEGO Disney Princess Anne & Kristoff’s Sleigh Adventure have been on sale for many months now. They are great sets, but it is possible that LEGO made too many of them and they are not selling fast enough. You can find all the discounted sets under the Sales and Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Nice! Yeah, I have seen several people do that mirror image setup. The Pet Shop is such an incredibly versatile set. It is one of the reasons it stayed around for so long. Another is that both are good looking, but simple buildings, so they nicely fit in anywhere, and also easy to customize. The Pet Shop can be turned into any other shop with just some simple modifications. And the apartment side can be furnished in so many ways. Great set all in all. I’m glad you were able to get a second one. 🙂

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.
After reading a couple of interesting posts I thought I would toss my own thoughts on what the Lego.com retiring soon moniker means to me.  To me this is definitely going to be the bane of the secondary market in time.  It indicates to everyone interested in Lego that their time is nearly up to purchase particular sets.  It also indicates to resellers that the time to buy is now.  I’m sure there will be the usual procrastinators inside of there yet, but I think overall less.  I think that for every one person who buys one knowing that a set will soon be retired there will be another reseller buying two of them to hopefully sell to the person that missed that time window.  If Lego stays on top of and consistent with their labeling of sets ‘retiring soon’ it will definitely start to take the steam out of the secondary market and make buying and holding a regular occurrence with the majority of sets.  (this is not meant to be a bubble thread)  I apologize in advance if it somehow evolves into that or an ethical debate.  Overall this doesn’t bother me, just one of those things I’ve given a moments thought to.
As a fan, however, it’s very difficult to tell how well a LEGO set sells for the company. Just because the aftermarket cost is high doesn’t necessarily mean that there are a LOT of people still demanding a set for the MSRP.

Now that the LEGO set is picked out and you have the instructions, the next step is to do a bit of research. Start by finding out what the going rate for the set is on the secondary market. My personal go-tos are BrickLink and eBay. The price-guide on these websites will give you a gauge that you can use to decide which makes more sense: buy the set as a whole, or piece it together yourself. For example, I wanted to build the #10185 LEGO Modular Green Grocer that has been retired years ago. The piece-count for this sets is 2352 pieces, and the price back in 2008 was $150. Now on the secondary market I found the lowest prices around the mid $700s with a good majority at the $800 mark – this is for used sets. New condition sets go well over a $1,000. I felt there was plenty of room to find some savings.
Relive the ultimate betrayal in Cloud City with this rare LEGO Star Wars set. Lando is ready to turn our heroes over to the dark side! Don’t worry, when you build it, you can make the story go however you please. This 698 piece set will leave you frozen in disbelief (thankfully not in Carbonite!) at how cool it is. Get your hands on this set before Boba Fett does!

I haven’t tried it myself yet, since my daughter is a little young for Legos, but I’ve heard great things about Pley. It’s a monthly Lego and Duplo rental service, kind of like Netflix for Legos. It could be a great way to try some of the cool sets before you spend lots of money on them, since we all know that just because it’s expensive doesn’t mean it will hold your child’s interest. It could also cut down on clutter, since you get to use lots of new sets without having to store the old ones.
eBay determines trending price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. “New” refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and “Used” refers to an item that has been used previously.
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.

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.
Lego released a Friends theme tree house #3065 in 2012 that was a great set and, I believe, one that sold well. It was also a great price at 19.99. This set, 31010, costs a little bit more, adds a larger structure and has a more gender neutral color scheme. As a Creator set, 31010 has directions for three models (you build one at a time): the tree house, a waterside building with a small dock, and a two story barn-like structure. The set includes one mini-figure (a boy) with a walkie talkie, a frog, treasure map, and pizza. The tree house features a folding ladder (very nifty design), a tipper with “water” in it, winch with hook and trash-can, telescope, clubhouse with attic and lift-off top, bed, a hidden compartment (in the tree) for the treasure map, a brick-built wagon, and a brick-built dog. The waterside structure has a small oven with a lift-off top. The little barn features the winch.
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.
REALITY it’s location, location, location! What has all of our parents said to use at least a 1000 times on your life span???? 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 sets for boys _lego backhoe”

I think most kids will stick with the tree house design as it has the most going on. Play-wise, this set works well with a wide range of Lego’s other themes. It is mini-figure size, unlike some of the other Creator sets. The set makes a great gift because if the child does not like it, they have the ability to make a wide range of other structures. At the very least, it is a good collection of very useful bricks.
LEGO STAR WARS Millenium Falcon 7965 *Brand new sealed* This is an awesome set. Has been discontinued for a while so very hard to find these days. This is brand new un-opened MISB. Perfect for a gift for the star wars fan as it is still sealed and⁄or for the serious collector as the box is in excellent condition also. It was released available direct from Lego back 2011. This is a very cool classic set ~1250 pieces with 6 minifigures and super impressive large set when built. Lego descr
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.
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.
I don’t know how they could have made this kit any more unappealing. I feel like they reused molds from other micro kits and just tried to get a minecrafty color scheme – they completely phoned this in!
Rinse and dry bricks once color is restored. This typically takes about four to six hours. This time varies depending on the strength of the sunlight and the age of the hydrogen peroxide. Once done, transfer the bricks to a colander, rinse them, and air dry.
Updated January 19, 2016 With set 10236 currently temporarily out of stock on LEGO’s North American website until January 2016, some are wondering if we will see LEGO Ewok Village retirement soon. The Ewok Village will be two years old… Continue Reading →
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.

Whether you’re a huge Star Wars fan or not, the name “Millennium Falcon” has definitely crossed your eardrum. Originally a cargo vessel designed to lug around cargo until it was heavily, and illegally, modified to become the ship everyone now knows to be modest, but very powerful. For the Lego collectors looking for the best Lego Star Wars sets, this one is a steal. Many reviews of the product state that the finished product, “… looks exactly like the Millennium Falcon. Every little detail visible in the movie is present on the model.”
I bought this for my 11 year old grandson and he just loves it. It appears to be a challenge but not too hard and its large so it will take a bit of time to construct it. The characters are really cute. That ugly Jabba the Hut is a riot. I know its pricey but they do last forever. I think anyone who loves Star Wars will just love this addition. I heard that there is some controversy about the structure that this guy lives in but I didn’t see it for a moment. It just looks like a toy house that is typical of a Lego set. If you have the cash, buy it. I don’t think you will be disappointed.

Put the bricks in a transparent container. Sun exposure is an important part of this method, so use a glass or plastic container. Place it in an area with plenty of sun, but keep it away from children and pets, as non-edible materials will be used.
This LEGO set is the “cheaper” version of the UCS Imperial Shuttle (10212), a set with extreme attention to detail, but already discontinued and quite complicated to find (also a bit pricey starting at $760).
You forgot that the MechDragon is on sale. But then that’s not really retiring soon. What I don’t understand is why the V-wing, Vulture Droid, and AT-TE are retiring so early. The V-wing and droid are 2014 releases even! 😕 Not that I’m complaining, I have the V-wing already and my brother has the AT-TE, so we’re good.
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.
So like mentioned above, if you want Lego to keep making sets then keep buying loads of them… But usually most runs go for about 2-3 years before being discontinued (unless it is specifically for a retail outlet (like the Helicopter and limo sets for walmart) then I am guessing it is as many as that store wants to buy and make and lego maybe matches that, who knows
Notable features: Lego’s “Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon” is the largest Star Wars set and the second-largest Lego set ever made. It features Lego figures of Luke Skywalker, Hans Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Hopefully this overview will get you organized enough to start on that dream LEGO set you never thought would be possible to get. It can be a long road to see the fruits of your work, but when all is done you have the added accomplishment of knowing how much work went into the project. To date I’ve assembled two LEGO Modular Buildings I missed out on when they were originally released, and I’m currently working on a third. I’ve also completed a handful of old LEGO Castle sets.
3) Avoid generic kids’ stuff. Fire stations and police stations go on sale regularly, but Maciorowski warns they’re not typically investment winners. Steer clear of the Lego City sets, which are lemons. (Unless you’re five years old. Then they’re awesome.)
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.
This is a great purchase. It didn’t take me too long to build it, just an hour or two, and it was bigger than I thought. It was fun creating the drawbridge and the steel gate, I think that this is a great addition to have.
Clean your LEGO pieces. You don’t need to scrub each piece, but a quick wash in warm water and dish soap will add value to your LEGO lot. Put them in a storage tub with enough warm water to cover them. Add some soap and stir them around a bit. Let them soak a while and stir them a few more times. Drain, rinse, and spread them out on a towel to air dry. Stir them up a few times on the towel so the water drains better. Mention in your listing that you have cleaned them. If you have no pets or smokers in your home, mention this as well.
The pièce de résistance of the Lego Star Wars Ultimate Collector Series with a price-tag that beggars belief. Consisting of a whopping 5,195 bricks and weighing in at just over 10kg, the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy is the second-largest Lego set ever and is the jewel in the Lego Star Wars crown.

This set is an overall great value from Lego. Also, it is one of only two corner buildings the modular series so far, so if you want to make a square block, you’ll have to pick up a couple of these since the other corner unit (Cafe Corner) is no longer available unless you’re willing to spend $1,500+ on eBay.
Large-size, well-constructed set with a lot of useful pieces and some really neat touches (the brick tiling, the bell, the numbered ‘engraving’, a little water tower…). Almost 3x more expensive though now then when I first bought it. :/

The Hot Wheels Elite One The Dark Knight Batmobile is based on the design of Batman’s ride from the Dark Knight films. As the description states, “as midnight tolls in Gotham City, evildoers begin carrying out their dark deeds,” and that’s when our superhero hops into the Batmobile and takes off as the city’s caped crusader.
As we have discussed at the beginning of the month, there is a Double LEGO VIP Points promotion going on for the entire month (see: LEGO Promotions & Double VIP Points!). The Double VIP Points period is the best time to pick up large exclusive LEGO sets, as they are usually only available directly from LEGO, and they almost never go on sale. So earning Double VIP Points is the best way to get some savings on these sets. 🙂

Brilliant to use the shield as a trowel for the BRICKLAYER. I’ve lifted the idea for a carpenter’s workstation and changed it a bit.  I’ve created a workbench on the mezzanine floor inspired by this idea.  Also the ‘plate compactor’ being used on the pavement is from 7746-1 from 2009.
The Modular Buildings series is viewed by Lego designers and fan sites as “toys for adults”.[10] Product reviews have been very positive with the biggest criticisms being price and degree of difficulty. With Café Corner, one reviewer complained that the interior of the building was bare of any finishing.[2] This complaint was addressed in later models such as Green Grocer, which had finished interior details included in each of its three floors.[10]

Man, I really love this one. 1,137 pieces, 6 AA batteries (not included), a fair few quid, and several hours of your building time can combine to build a version of The Empire Strikes Back’s iconic AT-AT that actually ruddy walks. Practical fun meets gorgeous design, and the result is a proper geeky treat.
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!

“lego heroes _what is the most expensive lego set ever made”

The UCS Sandcrawler was just released two years ago! I think that UCS sets should stay around for at least 4-5 years so people who don’t have $400 right away can save up. As for the others, I don’t have WALL-E yet, so I might need to act quickly (even though my brother has it). Thanks for the news!
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.
Nothing gets us more excited then when LEGO announces a new Star Wars set. Okay, one thing does, and that’s a new movie announcement (which means more LEGO Sets!). With LEGO having built an Empire of collectible sets, it isn’t a wonder some of them are worth some serious cash.
With the included pieces you can build three distinct houses: a treehouse, a garage, or a regular house with the included directions. However, it is up to your own imagination to build even more different variations. Excellent set.
Start at a reasonable price. In general LEGO buyers expect to pay between $4 and $7 per pound for loose used LEGO pieces including shipping. Clean lots with desirable pieces will often sell for even more. Start your auction at the low end of that range or below it. This will show your buyers you have done your homework and know what your lot is worth.

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.
Welp, time to bite the bullet on the Ewok Village. Both it and the Sandcrawler are 12% off on Amazon. The Sandcrawler is still a better buy (over 3000 pieces vs. the Ewok Village’s not-even-2000), but the Village seems to be more playable. Honestly, I’m a little surprised the Ewok Village was still around–didn’t it come out in 2013?
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)
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 SALES & DEALS: The LEGO Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop has a lot of the LEGO video games on sale. This includes LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, The LEGO Movie, LEGO The Hobbit, and LEGO Legends of Chima games. Other than these the only things listed right now are a few magnets, and miscellaneous gear. However this section is going to be very busy as we get closer to the end of the year, especially right after Christmas. So make sure you check it regularly. Here is the direct link (and the same link is also available in the right-hand side-bar at all times for your convenience): LEGO Sales & Deals at the Online LEGO Shop
Now that the LEGO set is picked out and you have the instructions, the next step is to do a bit of research. Start by finding out what the going rate for the set is on the secondary market. My personal go-tos are BrickLink and eBay. The price-guide on these websites will give you a gauge that you can use to decide which makes more sense: buy the set as a whole, or piece it together yourself. For example, I wanted to build the #10185 LEGO Modular Green Grocer that has been retired years ago. The piece-count for this sets is 2352 pieces, and the price back in 2008 was $150. Now on the secondary market I found the lowest prices around the mid $700s with a good majority at the $800 mark – this is for used sets. New condition sets go well over a $1,000. I felt there was plenty of room to find some savings.
A model like this deserves a great presentation. My first build was done inside a BiOrb (aquarium) and it was a challenge, but turned out really cool. The second build was displayed inside a terrarium from Exo-terra. The terrarium worked out much better. It has doors for easy access and interaction, and has space for the most important thing… A display turntable. one that can support about 7-10kg and has an AC adapter.
Sort the incoming LEGO elements for the project in a way you like to build. Sure, you could just shove the pieces all in one big bag as they arrive from different sellers, however if you take the time to sort the elements in a way that you enjoy building, then when it comes time to put the set together, things are a lot easier. A couple of sorting methods are either by color or by piece category. I’ll often make broader categories like all blues or all bricks – whether they are modified or not. The added advantage of this method is that if you have to double check if you got a part already it is easier to find the answer. For large projects with thousands of pieces this can be very helpful.
This is one drawback of being the second child. You never have time to become gradually familiar with a building toy. There aren’t even enough simple bricks after you start buying set after set.  Instead you inherit of big mass from big brother and if you didn’t pick up the “LEGO language” quickly, well, then you need a translator!  

“unique lego sets 2016 lego star wars ucs”

The minifigs in this set are great. You get Leia in her Boussh bounty-hunter disguise, Chewbacca (complete with chains), Han Solo (who snaps into a great carbonite piece imprinted with his outline), Bib Fortuna (Jabba’s majordomo), Oola (the green-toned dancer), and a Gamorrean guard. There are also two unique figures — Jabba the Hutt himself (a wonderful model), and Salacious Crumb (his capering little monkey-like creature). Finally, there is a small build for a B’omarr Monk spider-droid.
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.
Im not sure whats going on, i think they are updating the website. Like the LOTR section doesnt have any of the old sets, the hobbit and other themes have zero listings lol As of last night orc forge was still listed as retiring soon and was “temp out of stock”
If you’ve a pocket full of change, you might want to empty it out, as you could be in for some very good news. That’s according to the money experts at ChangeChecker, who have revealed a fascinating Scarcity Index, detailing the 37 ‘rare’ £2 coins that are set to be worth a mint one day – and many of them are still in circulation.
As a tradition, LEGO will usually announce retiring sets in October. The LEGO Group have done collectors a big favor by revealing some of their upcoming retirements in their Europe website. The list contains a number of interesting sets, such as… Continue Reading →

Thanks to Steven Morin for emailing in about this as a reminder. On LEGO Shop@home you can now search for sets that are due to be retired soon. Most are this year’s sets that only have a year’s shelf life, but if you want to complete a certain theme it can at least give you an idea of what you need to get first. However, it’s the exclusives on the list that will interest most of us and as we predicted the other month there are some big sets going out by the end of 2015.
I finally got a copy of this set so I can write an actual review. I find many reviews on Amazon are negative because of item availability and aftermarket pricing. So here is an actual review of the set, not the market. Please see the customer image gallery for my build uploads.
Creator sets are made primarily out of general-use bricks and come with instructions for multiple builds. This is closer to how Lego was when I was a child, and it encourages kids to rebuild the structures either as the other designs or their own. The Creator sets, however, use more ingenious building techniques than what Lego offered decades ago. These are really marvels of miniature design. Set 31010 has many good bricks including plates, angled pieces (many in brown, a more useful color than you might think), and four windows.
Build it with a kid – hopefully your own. My 5-year-old and I built the second one. With guidance, he’s able to actually be helpful. And, he asks a lot of questions about what parts are and why they are important. I love telling the stories as we build and watching a few clips.
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 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.
As much I’d like those three there are several other Direct To Consumer (D2C) sets that are higher on my list, therefore all three of them are a pass. If I was to chose one it would be 75059 – Sandcrawler.
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. 
The sets are still going to hang around until they’re out of stock, but once they’re gone that’s it. One thing this might help is the collectability of the sets after their shelf life runs out. There are some really cool Rogue One sets out there, but not everyone is going to get their hands on them.
Yes, the discount is basically 20%. That’s pretty standard when LEGO is doing a clearance. The only time I have seen them go over this (up to 50%) is the year-end sale. You do get VIP Points though too, so that helps, and shopping for discounted sets during the Double VIP Points period is even better. 🙂
You can safely mark this multi-faceted set out as ‘one for the future’. Combining bits from the that’s-no-moon space stations from both Episode I and Episode III, this incredibly popular Death Star includes a massive 24 ‘minifigs’, a multitude of moving parts and classic set-piece areas like the trash compactor and the Emperor’s Throne Room. A fan favourite which, if you do a bit of internet detective work, you can still buy for a reasonable sum – in Lego terms at least.
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.
Mmmmm it just seems ludicrous to me that in order to save money, I have to purchase the earlier wave Lego Dimension sets from a seller in North America. Even with international postage costs, these sets (boxed) work out at an approx saving of 50% compared to the UK price. This seller must have purchased the sets when they were drastically reduced in price, and is obviously making a profit.
Nice! Yeah, I have seen several people do that mirror image setup. The Pet Shop is such an incredibly versatile set. It is one of the reasons it stayed around for so long. Another is that both are good looking, but simple buildings, so they nicely fit in anywhere, and also easy to customize. The Pet Shop can be turned into any other shop with just some simple modifications. And the apartment side can be furnished in so many ways. Great set all in all. I’m glad you were able to get a second one. 🙂
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…..
They don’t always discontinue them– the best example I can think of is probably the Star Destroyer, which was around longer than LEGO initially expected, thanks to excellent sales. They offered it in catalogs from at least 2002 to 2007 (6 years). If they offered the UCS MF that long, it would be in catalogs until at least 2012!

Luke’s Landspeeder (75173):  There’s a lot to love here with the classic landspeeder build which also includes three classic minifigurines: Luke, C3PO, and Obi-Wan (or Ben, if you prefer) Kenobi. The Tusken Raider also looks fantastic.

Perhaps the early retirement of the Ideas sets comes from the “Original Ideas” campaign; now that they’ve begun going for the unlicensed sets (Maze, Fishing Store) they want to distance themselves from the licensed products and take Ideas in a new direction altogether.
