Either way I hope they are enjoying Lego - as they may have forgotton its a toy to be built/played with, and not speculated or hyped about!!As of 18.30 today both EN and Imperial flagship are available from S@H in the UK........
I agree with sidersdd, these look like the next underbought sets, but I think Space Shuttle will get a bit more value because it's Minifigure-scale. Maybe to the level of the modulars, or even some older train sets. Since we don't have anymore space shuttle missions from NASA, these will become very sought-after by the collectors. Other than the Star Wars UCS, I don't see sets becoming that desirable if they are not made for Minifigures.
^Space Shuttle and Tower Bridge
^--- well they ARE re-doing Total Recall as another movie, so I guess it would be possible, but only if the move is PG, becuase kids would need to be able to see it to generate interest in the line.Heck Id like to see a 'retro' space them like of the late 70's early 80's.
strange planet setups with alien creatures - say like LB426).
I don't think anyone has mentioned some of the smaller sets that have sold out. The calendar they made earlier in the year has disappeared very quickly. Shame, I missed that!

Okay...does everyone agree that the AC Earth Defense Conquest is actually sold out for good?
So the Emerald Night seems to be selling 10 per three hour increments on Amazon, giving it 12 days maximum via my 5th grade math skills. I have to assume that as fewer are in stock, the quicker they will sell, so I'd estimate a week left on this one. Then... watch those eBay sellers go to town with the prices!
Looks like the MF Wedding Favor Set just sold out. The most intriguing thing about this set is all the back and forth on Lego's S@H feedback forum regarding the fact that Lego actually had the gall to use a "man" and a "woman" for the wedding set (not a "man" and another "man," a "man" and a "livestock animal," etc.). Kind of turned my stomach to be honest...glad to see it go.
Imperial Flagship definitely going to be gone. Just arrived from my local store where I snatched one for $134.88. They had only 3 in stock, the two others had somewhat damaged boxes (mostly artwork on the front and some heavy shelfwear), I've got the only one that was looking mint. The staff said they are not expecting any more shipments of these. It's completely done after those two I've left there. Now, they changed the price, while I was paying for my purchase back to $179.99 on the ones I left there. I was lucky enough that they forgot to adjust back the price on these right after Black Friday, so I got myself a nice discount.
If you buy beat up boxes the LEGO store will sometimes take 10-20% off of the boxes
I don't think the EN aftermarket prices will climb too high (over 35%) in the next 6 months. Long-term heck ya, it'll hover around $200. The train theme is so incredibly consistent.
Why buy from eBay for $120 when they are still @ Amazon for $90?
On a side note...The Death Star is below 200 units at Amazon now, if anyone has been waiting to get one, now is the time.
