I think it is quite naive to think all Lego sets will appreciate over time. There are plenty of sets which now sell on Ebay cheap as chips.
Maybe it is the mini-figs:
^^ Power Miners like Atlantis looks like one of those themes that just doesn't fit well with anything else. I'm of mind that Lego should scale back on themes and instead focus on these core four, City, Space, Castle and Creator with a few liscensed themes a year.
Maybe it is the mini-figs:http://www.amazon.com/LEGO-City-Set-8403-House/dp/B003F7TSOE/City HouseRRP $39Current price $97Retired a year ago, same as Fire Rescue
Sigh... I guess I just don't "get" the mini-fig thing...*ducks from littletoki throwing something at me*
Maybe it is the mini-figs:You don't know the power of the Dark Side.
I'm with you and I've even had the same conversation with @littletoki, standing 1 foot in front of her. As I've said to several people, and have had several LEGO store employees agree with me on - the minifig is just an accessory to the actual interesting part of any LEGO set.
How much would you pay net for a death star if you sold off the 20 odd minifigs?
Theres also a huge range. That protocol droid for example, cheapest its sold for in the last 6 months - £3. The most, £24!
What are your predictions on 8098 (SW Clone Turbo Tank)? Ain't it about time that it EOL soon? Over here in Germany it's almost never on sale (maybe 10%off MSRP),so it may a good sign that it will sell well in the after-market?

^^ Now how long until we can't believe that these sat for so long at "only" $59.99...
^ certainly no one should be able to claim they didn't have a chance at this one. Sat at 40% off direct from LEGO for 4 full months.
Amazon has the Pet Shop and Grand Emporium for only 135 USD with free shipping and (usually) no tax right now.
Thanks, but I think @LegoFanTexas had a much more attractive deal.
