MEMBER OWNS SET: YES     MEMBER HAS BUILT SET: NO


FIRST IMPRESSION | Score: 9

Nice graphical boxed set with official hologram sticker on the box. Distinctly British branding and no mistaking this is the Olympic minifigure set

UNIQUE PARTS | Score: 7

Mainly the minifigure torso's are all unique to this set, having the Team GB branding in someway applied

PLAYABILITY/BUILD EXPERIENCE | Score: 4

More a show piece than play pieces. They don't take long to put together

VALUE FOR MONEY | Score: 10

If you can find a sealed box set of these, then I would recommend you do not open it if you are an investor!

THEME POPULARITY | Score: 9

Very popular and difficult to find, especially now at time of writting (Dec '13)

EXCLUSIVITY | Score: 10

Limited production. Although I gues that TLG will bring out more for the next Olympics.

PACKAGING | Score: 10

Definately distinctive packaging

GROWTH POTENTIAL | Score: 7

This may have peaked in value and if more teams get produced for other Olympics then I think the price will grow at a slower rate

DISPLAY QUALITY | Score: 10

If you have them all then the display value is very good and only a small space is needed (9 figures)

CONCLUSION & FINAL ANALYSIS | Score: 9

Great set, keep it sealed to maximise the value!
