So the 2HY sets are large scale ESB and Trafalgar Square. Interesting.

-Trafalgar Square (21045) – 79.99€
-Empire State Building (21046) – 99.99€

I was hoping for a larger Empire State Building.

Trafalgar Square could be as hot as Trevi Fountain, one to keep an eye on. Nearly everybody I have met in Europe along with all the Americans and Chinese I know have been there. If history repeats itself, we should see at least 30% off these in the UK which is when I'll pile in. The latest Burj and Guggenheim is showing good signs.

I hope you went all in on Buck House ? I see that 21019 ET was slated and it's taken off nicely, I went in H-U-G-E on those at £12 from Asda ?

BP was hard to find at decent discounts so I didn´t get as many as I wanted. I also thought it would do worse than Arc or Gugg due to longer life but I was wrong on that one.

Since the 21045 is totally new, and not a remake, this could stand the best chance of exceeding RRP post EOL. It a difficult call to make as the recent retirees sell for both well under and well above RRP, so it's all in the timing of when you sell (eg. when there's NO £1 FVF eBay offer - Grrr!).

Discounts are a must, but are not as common in the UK as they once were, especially with Asda/George no longer needing to compete with Tesco Direct.

i love this refresh.  looks so much better than the original which is in my collection. 

 

Regarding the MANY grill elements....With a building designed like this and it's size, is needed.  too bad Lego never made a 1x4 or even 1x6 grille.  however, the 1x2s work here since it gives the separate floor appearance.
