FS (WW): Beautiful CLASSIC SPACE Cosmic Fleet Voyager #6985 SEALED IN BOX

Hi All,

I have an absolute classic up for sale today. A SEALED Classic Space Cosmic Fleet Voyager #6985. One of the small pieces of seal tape has been cut, but the other is intact. Thus, the inside of the set has never been touched. Everything is just like it was when it was on the shelves in 1986.

Look at the photos! The set is like a fine wine and has aged well over time, but it's still 30 years old and has taken some beating. There are stains, scratch marks, denting, and creases. 

Quite simply, these never come up for sale in sealed condition. In 1986 people opened their LEGO sets, they didn't hid them in the closet as investments ;) The last one sold on Bricklink for $2,300, and while it is worth a lot I sort of think that's crazy money. I'm not really sure what to price this beauty at, so I'll be taking offers. Please shoot me a message if you're interested. It never hurts to try!

I'm willing to ship worldwide. Buyer pays exact cost.

Thanks,
Samuel

    Man, I long for the days when Lego sets had the flip up front so that you can see the inside of the box.

    Beautiful set, still one of my favourites from the line.

    It's always amazing to see what large constructions were possible with so few pieces. I mean, 404 pieces and the size is almost as large as Benny's Spaceship (...) at 930 pieces. Or compared to other much smaller current sets at far more than 404 pieces.

    I never had 6985 as a kid and would love to have a MISB one, yet it is far beyond my budget. Might try to find a used one on ebay or BL in good condition one day though.

    It's interesting to see that a box was not just a box in those days.  "Use this box for storage".  Who's wants a bashed storage box?

    Really nice Sam.

    Still available, I would be comfortable with $900 USD shipped. Please PM if interested.

    Thanks!

     The closest thing I've ever had to a set like this was a knockoff Pirate (I know, the irony) ship. It wasn't even compatible. But it was in a flip-up box, and that made it feel sligthly more worthy to pre-LEGO me.
     This is around the first times I see a real LEGO set with a box like this, and I don't know what to say other than it is gorgeous. Makes me wonder how would a, say, Ninjago set look like in a box like this, in an experience like this.
     With pictures of children (other than the omnipresent WIN! boy from my not-too-old days...) imaginating and making cool things with it. LEGO should try that next anniversary. I'd lose myself staring at it.
