and the astronomical cost of legos

edit: ~$1100. that's more than my car is worth at this point ;~;

u/NoMan999 · 19 pointsr/autism

You know how with Lego some kids carefully follow the instructions in the booklet and others just use their imaginations and build random stuff?

Well, some grew up as adults who can easily build Ikea furniture, but that's not the point. The point is that there isn't one specific way to play with toys. Some will use dolls as action figures while others will sit Batman, a T-rex and a car around for a cup of tea.

As for your brother, he'll grow up to become the target demographic for this and than (NB : don't buy from the second link, it was originally sold for "only" $300 or so.)

I don't have parenting advice as I'm not a parent and not an example to follow as a child, but maybe try to work on his strengths rather than his weaknesses (ie. teach him how to read and write rather than try to force him to speak.) Read him books while showing the text and images maybe?

You think that's cool?

Try this

1.2m long super star destroyer.

Or you could get the larger Death Star.

u/Brunninator · 14 pointsr/crappyoffbrands

I'm a huge fan of Lego but Lepin is actually great for sets that Lego has discontinued. For instance, the Lego Super Star Destroyer was discontinued but you can still find sets from private sellers for over $1000. Lepin has a near perfect knockoff for a hundred bucks. Spend a little time reprinting the STAR WNRS stickers and nobody knows the difference, with a 90% discount. I always buy from Lego when I can, but for something like this I don't mind buying the knockoff.

Ouache, 800 dollars sur Amazon ! J'ai l'impression qu'il y a certaines boites de Lego que faut en acheter autant que tu peux si t'as la chance de les voir en magasin, puis un ou deux ans plus tard tu les revends sur ebay pour deux ou trois fois ce que t'as payé.

Huge sale over at amazon right now. A whopping 4 cents!

u/7h3Hun73r · 4 pointsr/funny

They have a marvel helicarrier Lego that is $380! And that's not even getting into the adult collectors level legos

This is what I ask Santa for. (he said it won't fit in the sleigh)

u/morelandjo · 3 pointsr/Flipping

Here is an extreme example:

This set retired this past June, with a retail price of $399. Six months later the price has almost doubled on Amazon(sales rank 22,000 so these things are selling at that price), with sold listings on ebay between $5-700.

The popular brands are usually a safe investment if you can wait months for a return. Star Wars, Spongebob, Marvel, DC, Harry Potter, etc. Even better if it's a popular part of those brands(Hogwarts castle, Death Star).

Lego even keeps a list of items they plan on retiring soon here:

u/leftabitcharlie · 3 pointsr/StarWars

This is amazing.

Just look at that fucker!

Here's a more affordable Imperial Destroyer

Sith Super Star Destroyer

It just saddens me that I'll never have enough disposable income to be able to afford these things.

u/TheGreatJeremy · 3 pointsr/StarWars

Holy hell that's expensive! Maybe I could cannibalize the countless Lego sets sitting around my parent's house...

Edit: WTF, 800$+???

u/ooryl2 · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

hmm checks Ooryl's username, yep gotta be some Star Wars on Ooryl's wishlist. Over various moves over the years, Ooryl has lost Tales from Mos Eisley Cantina and Cloak of Deception Hardcover from this bookshelf full of books.

Ooryl also has on Ooryl's list the Old Republic Republic Striker-class Starfighter Lego Set to go with the Sith Fury Interceptor that Ooryl already owns.

Someday Ooryl really hopes to own the Lego Super Star Destroyer but it is way too expensive for Qrygg to ever imagine receiving it as a gift, even from Qrygg's family.


u/ProjectShamrock · 2 pointsr/transformers

I've considered investing in Lego sets. My son has been asking for some that are no longer produced for Christmas...and the prices they are going for on eBay make Masterpiece Transformers look like free McDonalds toys in comparison. However, if I became a multi-millionaire overnight, I'd probably buy at least a few of these bad boys. I already bought this one and spent a day putting it together and it was a lot of fun and the finished product is pretty big compared to most Lego sets. I can't imagine how big the Super Star Destroyer must be.

u/ew73 · 2 pointsr/funny

No, you want this set.

u/armada127 · 2 pointsr/videos

This might get buried in the comments, But I would just like to point out that there are two versions of each model; a more realistic expensive one, and a more play-set like one that includes mini-figures.

  • The realistic Star Destroyer (the one shown in the video) is actually close to $2000.

  • The Death Star, however is the play set one with the mini figures so it's only $400.

  • There is also a play version of the Star Destroyer for $400

  • And a model version of the Death Star for $1200.

    Edit: LEGO is expensive, I've been playing with LEGO play sets since I was about 4. There is a lot of work that goes into these toys and it's kind of sad that they seem to be dying compared to the video game generation (not that I'm against video games, I love video games, I just also like LEGO a whole lot.)

    Edit 2: My mistake, this is the one in the video which is $400.

> 1100 dollar gpu

Yes, just like lego.

u/fastuscactus · 1 pointr/gifs

$1000. Plus $20 to ship it

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon
u/TheFrontGuy · 1 pointr/technology

You could get that, or you could get this

u/phat1forever · 1 pointr/weightlifting

Yea, it is crazy how much they cost. I really wanted the Super Star Destroyer as it is over 4 feet long and as such, HUGE. But, I didn't have the money then to shell out like $500. Now it is more expensive and well, I don't have the time as much. Also, I want to clarify I am not really a Star Wars guy, I just like lego sets that are really big.

u/createitinc · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I only work in black. And sometimes very very dark grey.

I used to get the magazine from Lego and was part of the club. I've wanted this set since it first was in that mag. Back when they made it it was only almost 300. Now look at it. This is probably one that I will always keep wanting but never get to have. This is like my lego crush! I also wanted the imperial star destroyer version too. I may have these two mixed up even but look how pretty that is. drools

u/starwarsnerdguy · 1 pointr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

I would spend countless hours building Star Wars legos and be happy as a clam about it: 1 and 2.

Turn that frown Upsidedown, sweetheart.

u/LovesFLSun · 1 pointr/lego

Damn. Not 7 months ago at the Lego store in Downtown Disney.. 400.00 in a slightly smashed box with a "damaged box discount" NOW, its over 750.00 on Amazon. Crazy!

u/elmo_punch · 1 pointr/StarWars

It was hiding below. Here you go

u/GCanuck · -7 pointsr/lego

That's not too bad honestly. This one is expensive as shit.
