10213 - Shuttle Adventure

This set has the potential to be a huge money maker in the secondary market. It is a limited production set, so it is rarer than most.

I think a lot of Lego fans do not realize that there are two different Shuttle Adventures, 10213 and 10231. Almost identical looking, yet different internally, with the 10213 being the rarer set.

I think a lot of Lego fans do not realize that there are two different Shuttle Adventures, 10213 and 10231. Almost identical looking, yet different internally, with the 10213 being the rarer set.

I am not sure if that is really the deciding factor here, the 10231 was designed with some improvements in the construction, I have seen it going for more money in the secondary market despite being discontinued earlier. Either way, it may not make much difference to the collector who wants "that space shuttle model" a few of the elite folks may care but I doubt they will make much of a difference in the market. If I had the option to buy either of these sets at retail price, it wouldn't matter one bit which one I got.

For example, if TLG had released a millenium falcon shortly after 10179 that had some minor design improvements, do you think it would sell consistently for less than the original? I don't think so, to those want their 10179 with AFA certification and an acrylic case, the first edition may count for something but its not like the first space shuttles came with a certificate of authenticity or anything.
