    It's LEGO… > $1,000 ??

    I paid $60 for 14KG of lego about 2 years go.

    Man I must be getting old, but how could anyone justify over $1000 for some reshaped coke bottles..

      how do grange collectors justify $600 for a bottle of fermented grape juice ….. either they collect as a hobby …. or hope to resell, can’t see too many being bought as kids presents.

      will be worth very little once the box is opened …… then resold per kg.

        Strawman agrument - what has LEGO got to do with wine?

        Obvious difference - limited supply, greater risk in creation, more work to create, more work to store, etc. Lego, machine spits out millions of sub 0.1c plastic pieces 24/7 - not quite the same.

        But I do agree, it's typically overpriced!

        Just because some wine is over priced doesn't automagically make everything else that's over priced suddenly justified. Crazy logic.

          That's why nock off lego exists, it was a pretty good comparison. I think it's just down to you don't know how valuable some lego sets get due to rarity. They don't produce it anymore, hence it's rare. If they were to make it again, who's to say it would be the same as most cases they never are the same. Just like wine.

          @OnlinePred: So that proves there are some people who believe the price is justified (those paying the price obviously do).

          So the answer to "how can anyone justify over $1000 for some reshaped coke bottles" appears to be recursive. It costs a lot because it costs a lot.

          1) It is justified because I assume someone else in the future will justify an even more inflated price.

          And the justification for the future person? See (1) again?

          I'm not saying it won't work out like this though.

      How valuable is your house made from reshaped sand and trees

      • -2 votes

        My house has a real function, cost more closely reflects the cost to produce (by several orders of magnitude).

        So, IMO more valuable - it's justified.

          So you’ve got no nice looking clothes or art in your home?

        • -2 votes

          @flashi007: Art is not the same, prices like these would be for a 1 off, not something produced by the millions. I would not pay that for a "print" of anything.

          A single piece of art can take hours/days/months to produce and yields 1 piece. A few lego blocks, not so.

          Clothing? Yes a lot of clothing is also very over priced, but a lot is also good value.

      If you ever had a car, you paid thousands for reshaped coke cans though.

      • -2 votes

        My car has a real function, and the cost more closely reflects the cost to produce (by several orders of magnitude).

        Reshaped coke cans, safety features, complex production, continual product development, etc. Not in the same class.

        So, IMO more valuable - ie, I can justify it.

      As the other posters have pointed out, it's all relative really.

      $60 for 14KG of lego is good haul given market rate is $20-$30 kg depending on the bricks.

      Yeh but can it do the Kessel run in 12 parsecs?

    Oh damn! My wife will kill me.

  •  

    But really $1169.99 + $7.95 for a lego spaceship?
    Even as a fan I find this ludicrous O_o
    But whatever floats your boat.
    I'd buy a drone for that ;)

  •  

    ahhh….wife would leave me if I got this :) …..and to add salt, my kids stopped playing with lego too..

  •  

    Looks like they're all sold out onw.

  •  

    I couldn't bring myself to open the box. It would stay like a museum relic in the cupboard for all eternity.

  •  

    and its OOS

  •  

    Eh, it's okay if you need it ASAP, but the set only came out last year. First UCS had a shelf life of 4+ years, so everyone will have a chance to pick this up. Pick it up during a 2x VIP point promotion at S@H.

    Question for the Lego experts/ozbargainers here: Is the The Hulkbuster: Ultron Edition - 76105 ever gonna be available in retail shops in Australia? Thinking if I should just get it now or wait til it shows up in retail then wait for discounts.

  •  

    I just saw this displayed in glass display at the ala Moana centre in Honolulu today - mammoth of a kit!

    There are crazy prices for these particular UCS sets. Some more than others. The thing is the prices on Ebay are mostly inflated. Its only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. I sold an SSD UCS. Brought it ages ago and never made it because in the end, I didn't have the space to display it anywhere, time and then had buyer regret. So it stayed in my cupboard for all those years. The buyer had the reverse. Sellers regret. He sold his SSD and then regretted selling it. So it went to a good home. Didn't get a ridiculous price for it, but its all about whether your happy to sell or buy at a price. You may get 3.5k as another poster did, but they are rare. That's a lot of disposable dosh. Which I suspect you would not get back if you were the buyer and thinking it would increase alot more in the near future.

    At +1k over the price doesn't seem right. It seems like price gouging again for what it is. Whys not make it say $399. Then everyone can buy it make it if they want to or sell it later to someone at a reasonable price later. The 1k. It's like Lego are now catching onto the aftermarket pricing.
