  1. Past hour
  2. Manufacture date of April 2021 (wk/yr) Yay LEGO!
  3. What is/are "14R1 seals"? With the "permasale" been on for months suggests this set has been over produced and over horded (me included) - good parts set, part out still close to 3x!

  6. I have a lot still, but I bought a lot to begin with. They have been slow sellers and slow to appreciate until Covid. My first reaction was to dump them now but if the new ones are the Bane version it may make sense to hold for a bit. Either way I'm not worried. The Death Star still rose enough to recover at a decent price.
  7. Bought a couple from Amazon yesterday for $51.99 (13%) in anticipation of the upcoming Friends The Apartments set. Got them today with 14R1 seals.
  8. a 6 year hold for x2 lol madness.
  9. If the moon is beneath your feet, then yes, DOGE is headed that direction. Shiba Inu is following the dive after the founder of ETH dumped something like 20 trillion tokens. The game is clear at this point—if you want to follow the pump (or cause one) have someone hype a token and ensure it’s easily buyable by retail consumers and magically know when to cash out or transfer to a stable coin. Long term holds like BTC, ETH, or even ADA are a different game but how long the market plays it isn’t clear. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I can't believe no mentioned Robinhood! Cryptocurrency trading can't be any easier. Dogecoin to the moon!

  12. I'm still holding out for the regular black Tumbler; but "perfected" to now have the Batpod integration
  13. My grandson's class is too cute! Pre-K 3--His class is the winner of the SPS Lego Contest for the "mystery lot" in the sweepstakes! Their class and 5th grade! (hmmmmm, I wonder who's kid is in fifth grade???)
  14. Because people will pay more for a set when no one else has any left to sell. I hate to sell all of my inventory - it's usually a sign that I sold too low.
  15. I would keep an eye out for one being sold at a great price (by someone who is afraid of a potential remake). I doubt that it would be an exact remake (certainly not the same minifigs), and hopefully, it will be the camo. How good a deal are you looking for? I have them in varying conditions (mint, distress box, open box, no box, partially sealed sets, no minifigs, used).
  16. HERTZ so good. bought Hertz Global (HTZGQ) at $1.61 when they were bankrupt and smart money wouldn't touch it. shareholders are going to end up getting $8 a share out of this when all is said and done with the new deal. already up 50% today almost to $6 but it will make it to $8-9 in the next few days i believe.
  17. For your retirement accounts from former employers, I would recommend that you roll them over toe Merrill Edge and get their sign-on bonus. Last year, I was able to get $1,200 for a $200K transfer. Then over time, convert these assets to Roth and pay the tax ... especially if you believe that your future tax rate when you retire is likely to be higher. As for your taxable investments (e.g., non-retirement), I would recommend using the Vanguard platform. Consider general market ETFs and a sector ETF like VGT. Try not to use mutual funds if there's an ETF alternative (tax reason). I

  19. I’m not a financial advisor but Fidelity + VOO or VTI is a solid combo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. So... this is one of the ones that got away for me. I had just started collecting when it retired. I actually had this and the Sea Cow in my Amazon basket when they sold out and the price shot up. (This was before I knew that kind of thing happens.) So, I passed on both and was super disappointed. There are three sets that I still keep an eye on from this general era: Tumbler, Sea Cow, and the Tower of Orthanc. Still don’t have any of them. I was super excited when it looked like the Tumbler might get a refresh (sorry for those of you with the first one), but now I’m not so sure. The camo vers
  21. Thats a great plan, thanks for the response. I'm not a TikTok shamer, the opposit actually. It has very good uses and just like any technology, not so good uses. I was genuinely curious as to your plan. I just saw youtube announced plans for a tiktok like platform called youtube shorts. And they created a $100m fund to pay creators. Might be time to make the jump straight to Youtube shorts. Also goes to show the big players are threatened by Tiktok & the number of users, b/c they are staggering. https://www.theverge.com/2021/5/11/22429350/youtube-shorts-fund-video-payments-tik
  22. Thanks for all the thoughtful responses so far! I plan on going with a Roth IRA at some point (already have a Roth account in my 403b), but this new account will be focused on short to mid-term goals instead of retirement. I might actually just do both at the same time.
  23. I think that camo one is legit and, frankly, will drive the black one's value up significantly. Many folks are going to want both!
  24. They are called hoarders. Meet the VP 👋
