Thanks for answering all the questions. This is a great avenue for lego fans!  I was wondering what your top five lego purchases would or will be in the next month; based mainly on investment value.  If you do not mind, I would love to know why for each of the five.  Thank you again.  Have a great day.

Dear Brian,

Each fan must decide on the sets they think will be most valuable in the long run.  I would purchase these three sets:

7195 Ambush in Cairo – LEGO Batman taught us the small licensed sets with popular minifigures can increase in value.

10193 Medieval Market Village – This set is a great deal at 99 USD.  A brand new 3739 Blacksmith Shop set is worth more than double  the original set MSRP.  We should expect a similar jump in value with the MMV.

10185 Green Grocer – All Café Corner style buildings are valuable after they are discontinued.  Plus this set has great pieces.
