I suspect this ultimately still boils down to what I said in my first post. If it’s harder to produce but people are not willing to pay more money for it, what’s the point? I find myself as well being not terribly interested in the Technic figures, while I love Technic. Yet I do like minifigs. But it feels like the figures are just not needed in the models.
I spoke to a gentleman at Lego Direct for around 10 minutes yesterday, and he stated that the agents on the phone do not generally have discontinuation dates made available, nor do they give them out. He said the reason for this was due to competitors. The only item he mentioned he thought was discontinuing at the end of the year, was the latest AT-AT 8129. They also said that the Death Star was now expected to run through 2012.
Nice! Have fun bulding your Palace Cinema! I forgot to mention that since the Town Hall was on backorder when I called in, I ended up placing two separate orders (so the Parisian gets shipped right away). They actually got shipped out just one day apart, but this way I got two holiday sets. Love those little elves! 😛
Nice list, i’d suggest the grand prix racer (lego technic 42000) for the 7th spot. Can have power functions added to it but the main reason is just the thing being very detailed and close to 60cm long.
Then there’s the cost. Look at the current minifig sets and generally it’s 10/c piece plus minifigs, and a lot of the smaller sets really suffer when they have to include too many to make the scene work. But minifigs are simple, a complex one might have 10 pieces. A bare minimum Technic figure has more than that – about 17 by my count. And those pieces have to be assembled, unlike minifigs where half the parts come bare in the bag.

I was in a similar boat, ignored the early modular sets (partly due to price at the time despite thinking they looked great), and with the pet shop release have now decided to pass altogether – I would if i could, but i just don’t have the income to branch into this series, (in addition to Collectable Minifigs, OT Star Wars, probably POTC, and other ‘nice stuff’ such as some of the unusual Alien Conquest bits), AND chase the ones i missed. BUT my advice would be this: if you love the sets and you’re going to jump in, do so without delay, as you’ll only end up wanting the whole lot eventually. The longer you leave it, the easier it is to pass (as i have done much to the relief of my wallet) – but it will be that much harder to catch up if you change your mind.

If your argument may be that you do not have the funds, then I would purchase the remaining sets for resale because I guarantee that you will get your money back and then some. You can always change your mind from selling it new, to building it and then selling it used at more than what you paid for.
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.
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.

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.

^ I agree – it’s one thing creating scarcity in order to get a buying rush, but it’s quite another to miss out half your market by cutting it too soon. I’ve been expecting run extensions for the modulars, especially GE.
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 fourth in the series, 10197 Fire Brigade was the first modular building to include a vehicle in the form of a classic 1930’s fire engine. The building itself is detailed with red and grey brick architecture, and features a garage for the fire engine, fireman’s pole, and rooftop bell. The Fire Brigade was the first modular building to be stockpiled in large amounts by resellers and is considerably less rare and expensive than it’s predecessor, the Green Grocer.
One of those bad guys is Bane, and he may just bust out of his cell if he’s not watched too closely. With the turn of a disk, he’ll power up, glow, and break free! Perfect for encouraging imagination and story building, it’s a great gift for ages 3 – 8.
IMO… the entire line is overpriced… and not because of the price-to-parts ratio… but because when TLG switched to the minifig scale back in the late 1970s, they didn’t have this type of set in mind. I grew up with the Town Plan scale (1 door = 3 bricks tall), and the minifig scale (1 door= 5 or 6 bricks tall) caused a fourfold price increase in LEGO sets with 4 walls.
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.

But as you can see with my Super Town Plan example… you can still get a lot of details with a smaller scale. But once you get to the micro scale, the amount of details diminishes quite a bit further, and there’s little room for fancy building.
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
If you need a little break from science fiction-based Star Wars sets you can jump into an architectural project building the Taj Mahal. The $299 set gives you more bang for your buck than the Collector’s Millennium Falcon, boxing a total of 5,922 pieces (about 700 more than the Falcon). What also makes this set a bit more of a challenge for builders is that all the pieces are all generally the same color. This makes it especially difficult for those who like to dump all their Lego pieces into a pile rather than build bag-by-bag. Puzzle builders will attest to the difficulty of puzzles that don’t vary too much in color or patterns. The Lego model of the famous Taj Mahal palace in India was released in 2008.
Lego discontinues sets for a lot of different reasons… Mostly because of demand for parts I am sure, they cannot thin out their lines to keep 1000 more sets in production, plus sets get old, they do.. most people buy one and they want to see the next one out.. therefore if they were to make more of them then no one would buy.. and no, only selling 3 sets to people over 1 year is not their idea of good sales…. Then they would need to list a lot of their warehouse for 50% off.. again not something they want to do…. I mean look at the steamrollers and pig farms, which would not die… I think the biggest reason is to keep the lines fresh.. not to mention sets can come back at times (see the Metroliner, Main street, Black Falcons Fortress and Guarded Inn and recently the Maersk Container ship).
Appearing on BBC Radio 1’s “The Matt Edmondson Show,” Arnett put his Batman voice to use beyond the animated film world. Edmondson prompted the actor to make a prank call to a local toy store and speak to employees using his character’s voice.
My daughter is a fan of the CREATOR series. Her only request is PLEASE MAKE MORE. Of course, the price is a little high, but it is about the same everywhere you find this particular one (fire Brigade 10197), so buying here at least avoids you struggling with the crowds in the mall!!! My daughter has gotten as many creator ones as she can, and she is a teenage girl (girly girl). So for the kids who love playing for hours building, these sets are awesome. When she has a break, she loves to just sit on the floor and build these for hours.
