chrome TC-14's and limited edition hulk minifigs are calling my name......I would be careful with minifigures in the aftermarket. While I am interested in these as well - I am not stock piling them (I'm sure you're not either) - their value is not long-lived - they offer a quick turnaround profit (considering they are "free" - and people are willing to pay $5-$10 for them).. I am buying Lego all the time - so I will pick up 2 or 3 while the promotion is going on and usually make $20 (I keep 1 for my collection and sell the other 2) total (so $40 for both MF you mentioned).In short: Don't bet the farm on these guys.

I don't collect mini figures so these free mini fig offers are essentially free money for me. I'll probably break up all of my Lego purchases in $75 chunks so I can get a few of each figure and sell them off for about $10 each.
A reminder, $100 was the original MSRP. This could ultimately be the weakest UCS set of all.
Not sure if this is news or not, but I was just browsing the US Lego online shop for Star Wars stuff, and noticed (for the first time) that this kit is gone. It was there just a few days ago! Has it finally been discontinued?As I recall, Lego had it discounted to $59.99 for a while. I now see it is being offered at Amazon for $98.99 which suggests it has been discontinued and already the price hikes are commencing.
Just because people are trying to sell it for $100 on Amazon doesn't mean it's actually selling for that. No one is getting $100 for that. It's currently *actually* selling for between $50-$60 on ebay, where I envision it staying for quite a while, given its extreme lack of apparent popularity.
I really like this set. For the $60 I paid for it I am quite pleased.
Why did Home One do so poorly? I think it looks like a cracking set.
I know there is some speculation about the Fire Brigade going down the same path as the Cafe Corner but I recently had an email from LEGO stating this:"In terms of availability of the sets you asked for, I have the following information for you: 10197 (Fire Brigade) Discontinued end 201310211 (Grand Emporium) Discontinued end 201410218 (Pet Shop) Discontinued end 2014 These dates are just a guideline though, this can change. To be honest, I would buy another set now to be safe."
Getting a little tired of the FB and GE retirement guesses. Buy some, throw'em in a closet and forget'em for awhile.Moving along, I'm curious how the Marvel/DC and LOTR launches will impact the main theme sales?
For what it's worth, Amazon is showing FB in stock. Only 17 in stock, but more on the way.

I wonder what impact the Marvel/DC/LOTR launches will have on the collectors market. Each of these core fan bases will be now drawn into Lego. But true Lego first collectors may have be choosier about purchases. Star Wars could take a dip here.
