Lego Set Investments 2.0
Hi Lego Fan,
I am interested in purchasing Lego sets as an investment and perhaps selling discontinued sets for a premium at a later date. I’d love your advice on how to learn early about which sets/themes will be discontinued and when to buy at the best price for an investment? Thanks so much.
Retail chains (Walmart, Target, Toys R Us, etc) constantly want new Lego products to sell. Most sets will not be available longer than two years. The best deals are often found when a line is phased out and sets are on clearance.
Extremely popular and profitable lines such as Star Wars are rarely on clearance. It is better to look for retail sales such as 25% off or “buy two get one free” for long-term toy lines.
Demand for Lego set is very high now. It may not be as high in a few years. The sellers who stockpiled Lego several years ago when it was extremely affordable are now reaping the benefits. It may be more difficult today to find deals and turn a high profit in the future.
