WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON? NONE OF THIS CRAP HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE BEATLES OR A YELLOW SUBMARINE!

Sorry, it had more to do with the thickness of chocolate on a Snickers bar.

Do any of the mods know approx. how many of these we have in all brickfolios compared to WALL•E?

I'm hoping this clears £75 after fees by Xmas.

One just popped up on Amazon UK for £43.99, it ain't there now ;-)

Hasn't exactly flown out of the blocks in retirement, this one, but regularly selling around and upwards of £60 now.

Strange that so many are still being listed at under £50 with that in mind.

Still predicting good things from it, but may take a while.

150+ sellers across ebay and Amazon. Too much supply and not enough demand in the current market.

11,000 or so rank for a “new” price of $90 on Amazon means a healthy demand to me. With a realistic buy in at $50 I think this set looks good. How many more are going to come out at Christmas time is the key unknown but long term this is going to be a $ maker.

Yes there'll always be some demand, but the price has been relatively stagnant since Easter. Any rise in selling price brings new sellers to market. Don't most of us have 2 or 3 of these (or more) to offload? 

It might make £100 one day, but not anytime soon.

Bingo! This set is already a winner in the US. Glad our friends at Wally closed these out a few months ago for $48. A 6 month double is pretty darn good in this biz. I'm betting a much bigger return in 18 months.

I had two, sold both this week for £60 each, with a buy in of £33 each. I'm happy enough with that.

I've not sold any yet as way too busy, but I believe that this will be a £100+ set in a few years. I've still got the job lot from IWOOT when they cleared them out at -50%. At least these aren't taking up space that I need to pay for ? I may even offload them all at RRP one day if the need arises.

There´s more chance of the Beatles reforming.

Just curious, why do you predict that it’ll only increase in value 20 euros next Christmas? What’s the logic in that calculation?

I assume a Rolling Stone set already reached 2xRRP in the same time! 

Cheap sets get a quicker RRP return indeed :P

Over 100 Euros buyers get more hesitant to buy and I factor in that YS was widely available and my experience in surveilling in amazon prices. Of course it is only a guess and i said it will easily hit 150 Euros, I think price will be 165-190

There's a lot more Beatles fans than LEGO fans so this set could surpass the % increase of all other IDEAS sets to date. This is one set that I do NOT regret buying in vast quantities. If the Mars Rover can 6x within a few years, so can this.

This set is doing ok, nothing more nothing less. The auction sold prices are still marginally below RRP. 

When I'm 64 - it might then get to 2 X RRP. 

It’s still for sale in some areas. Within the last month I’ve seen it at John Lewis Newbury, Norwich. Also in Hamleys duty free at LHR T5 for  £70!

I can still offload mine now for an easy £20 profit, but I can wait for £100 profit in 5 years time, no rush.
