Ignore this foolishness. Certain Lego sets have outperformed gold as investments. The village set probably isn't the best investment, but it will certainly outpace inflation.

Are you asking from an investment point of view? I'd grab the Ewok Village as a pretty safe bet and go with the Tydirium shuttle as a second choice.

Wishful thinking, but it'd be nice if Lego store would price match so you could get Lego points.

That price on the Shuttle Tydirium isn't bad. Walmart had it at that before it dropped to the awesomely low price of $45. Had to grab one for the $75 price at another Walmart as my nearby one still had theirs at full price, just to at least have it in case Walmart got cleared out on them. My nearby Walmart FINALLY dropped the shuttle to $45 so returned the $75 and snagged it for $45. Can't believe that I still see this set @Target and of course at the TRU with its inane markup.

Looks like Amazon is price matching Target on both prices OP. The Tydirium is now $69.29

If you're going to invest in Legos I think there are some people with Beanie Babies for you as well...

The sets I choose to purchase as an investment usually turn a 50% profit or more after fees within the first year.

The poster on Beanie Babies has a legitimate point. Lego sets have a much smaller intrinsic value than the so-called investment market. This is at its core a speculative market, based on artificial scarcity created by vastly expanded Intellectual Property laws. The Lego Group helps support this by being extremely litigious, abusing IP laws (when patent protection expired on Minifigs, it took advantage of European Union rules to create a 3D trademark on it's figure profile, even including the rounded profile of the head), and making one of the highest quality products out there, along with powerhouse marketing and licensing.

These toys have substantially less intrinsic value than the price on the secondary market, which occurs due to market distortions by speculative money flow (thanks to the SDer in the past who noted that). Of course the same distortions due to "financial regulation" favoring futures and similar markets are estimated to add up to a $1 in the price of gasoline, so it's not confined to this. The issue is that in the case of a true economic meltdown (if 2008 had happened without intervention and a true Great Depression had occurred), I have serious doubts as to whether Lego Sets would have continued their "investment performance."

Such so-called investments have fueled bubbles for centuries - read about the Dutch Tulip financial bubble (though there is now robust argument by economists about it, nonetheless it DID happen) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tulip_mania That being said, for over a decade Lego has been a proven speculative investment, and as long as the economy does not suffer a major contraction or financial crisis (bigger than 2008) with proper research you can make a fair bit of money. Just be aware that the same arguments over Lego have been made over Beanie Babies, and Tulips. What's important, just like any other similar market, is to be self-honest about what you are doing, do your due-diligence, and to recognize the warning signs of a bubble. BTW I when I purchased my current house 15 years ago, the signs of a bubble were already there (pricing increasing faster than the income of the target market is not sustainable) and I avoided taking a major loss in value in 2008, while still getting a house in a superlative school district. So I'm not just talking academic theory here. Big Grin
