Tesco and Amazon introducing buying limits on certain sets, especially on promotions / 3 for 2. 

I think amazon have had selling limits for years as have had to use multiple accounts for years.  Limited to 2 per week per account?

Evolution of high-performing investment strategies, away from large exclusives to lower-priced, targeted sets and themes.    Example: Pet Shop continues to be a dog, while 2015 Speed Champions is now a stellar performer.

I think that has a lot to do with a simply psychology.. you are more likely to spend (in your eyes) "reasonable" sum that you dont have to think twice about (such as 80 USD) for something that cost previously just 15 uSD.. than to think four times over if 300 USD is a good deal for a set that originally cost 250 USD..
