A drop in resale value is only one side to it. A rerelease also most likely means one less new release.
It's not like a re-issue is going to make me buy it... simply because missing the Cafe Corner made me voluntarily pass on the others. It's a little too late for me either way. I think saying a re-issue is in any child's best interests is pushing the truth... everyone here knows that the modulars were made for adult collectors. And don't complain about Ebay asking prices, because the only reason they are that high is because idiots are willing to pay that much. Some Lego collectors have way to much money, and are stupidly willing to accept "asking prices" for standard models like the Batman series.
How many of you saying "yes, please reissue Cafe Corner" would be happy to have had that come out this year instead of Town Hall?
I was thinking of doing the same thing but I felt confused and lost. Too many parts, too many sellers, too many price points. AHH!!
To be honest I'm still not convinced on the town hall, I feel its too big and wont blend well with the others, and the outside of it doesn't seem as detailed and interesting as the other buildings...
Sets should not be reissued. .... Plus, the Cafe Corner I have would be worth zilch if Lego did that...LOL
Isn't that the real problem, though. True collectors would not want to sell their set, so it doesn't impact on them.
