21005 - Fallingwater


Recommended Posts

Arguably the best display set in the theme? I'm definitely putting one of these on my desk. What's your take on the potential? Seeing the 2011 set robie house retiring makes me feel the falling water is not too far away. Lego online shop starts to show stock shortage. Stock up time?

Turns out that I got the price wrong. There was a 30% discount on all the sets, so each FW was selling for about $74 usd. Thats 26% off US rrp! There were abt 20 sets in total, so i wiped all of them

You're kind of new around here aren't you? Being absolutely sure because you have inside information you choose not to share is almost as bad as stating your opinion/belief as an

No, it's not sold out worldwide. But, it's not available worldwide either (in my country it seems to only be found on ebay and marketplaces).     It's not retiring !   &#

Fallingwater is one of the most iconic buildings in the United States.  It is famous all over the world.  The biggest problem with investing in this set (or anything in the architecture line) is that we have no idea when it will EOL.  There is no rhyme or reason for when the architecture sets will retire.  This year my target long term hold architecture sets are Fallingwater at $75, White House at $35, and Empire State at $15.  

 

At Christmas time, any architecture set you buy at a 25% discount will double if it goes out of stock.

Well, the only one we know for sure that is going retire this year is Robie House. So far, it is yet to climb over MSRP even though it is OOS at Lego Shop and many other places. But this is probably because there are enough people who got it at well below MSRP and still selling it at around MSRP

I would say for sure if you don't have R2D2, Robie, or DS available. Or if your budget is slightly lower. I have waited to pick one up but probably will do so soon.

I have a Robbie at $160. Don't have R2D2 or DS. Just starting.

I think what he meant is to make sure your local BN doesn't have R2D2, Robie or DS available or otherwise you'd want to use your coupon on one of those instead of the falling water.  Personally I would also check there is no helm's deep available.

The tricky thing about the architecture sets is they have limited availability despite not being exclusive. Walmart and Target don't carry them at all. At Amazon you have to go back almost 3 years to see the last below $70 price. At BN their BOGO sale excludes the architecture theme. One could do better with a 25% or 30% off coupon at BN but those are not easy to come by. Lego online will probably discount them when they retire, but how long did the Robie House sale last? That's why I'm thinking getting a couple with TRU random sale may not be a bad idea, even it is just 20% off.

 

Am I over-analyzing it?

I have heard that some Targets do have Architecture sets, but they are usually not located in the toy section. My best bet has been Amazon price drops (got two at $75 each) or BN BOGOs/member coupons.

of the fifteen or so Targets in my area that I've gone to I've never seen Architecture sets at them, anywhere. 

 

After christmas I did see a whitehouse returned to a walmart but they wanted regular MSRP on it so meh

 

And none of the B&Ns around me for 50 miles have any "hard to find" or exclusive sets like death star or R2D2 and I basically live in 300 miles of unbroken development in SE florida

I can recall one person saying they found a bunch of Architecture sets in the puzzle section for some reason. Even took a photo and posted it.
