How long does a set stay on the market?


Recommended Posts

How long do sets like the Grand Emporium(10211) stay in production? I noticed that some of the older Town modular sets like the Cafe Corner(10182) are selling for over $1000 on EBAY. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-10182-Cafe-Corner-NEW-/320781576179?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4ab01267f3#ht_596wt_1040 http://www.ebay.com/itm/Lego-City-Town-10182-Cafe-Corner-New-Sealed-/300537352140?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item45f96c0fcc#ht_581wt_905 WOW!

Most Lego sets seem to stick around a year or two. Some of the the more popular sets like the Death Star(10188) have been around 4+ years already and doesn't seem to be getting retired anytime soon. As for the modular Town sets, yes, they bring back big money after a few years of being discontinued. The Pet Shop(10218), Grand Emporium(10211) and Fire Brigade(10197) all look like a future appreciation winners!

Looks like the fire brigade will be discontinued in the next 6 months.

Speaking to staff at a Lego store today models are in production for 2 years then remain on the market for another year while stocks last. So 3 years on average.

I agree with the Fire Brigade prediction. It's been around since 2009 and it's not in the new catalog. See ya. ;-)
