What type of collector are you? Are there many sealed set collectors here?
Hi guys, my name is Jason from USA. I'm 32. Grew up in the 80s with Legoland as it was by far my favorite toy type. As an adult, I still have a passion for Lego but my interests are divided. I still occasionally buy modern sets to open and mess around with. But I also heavily collect unopened sets, primarily Legoland stuff from long ago.
I guess I'm posting this thread just to feel out if there are many others out there interested in this type of collecting. After browsing several Lego websites for the past couple years, I get the feeling that I'm in a vast minority here. I know it kills some people to think of having Lego sets that you don't open, and I understand that. But it's something that I enjoy greatly and it brings back a lot of memories for me to find a set in new condition that I opened as a kid 25 years ago.
Does anyone know of any major collectors out there that might have an epic collection that would make me cry? I have limited funds for this, so my collection is quite modest. I have about 35 sets total. My current gem would have to be a pristine/flawless 6085 (Black Monarch's Castle) and a really nice 6987 (Blacktron Message Intercept Base).
Thanks for looking.
