Why do Lego posts always attract the same sad people each time who comment on things that they have no interest in? I don't feel the urge to comment on 2000 degree Dunkin' Donut deals or anything involving alcohol. They don't interest me so I just ignore them.

Pop Lego in the title and the uninformed spending police are out in force every time.

I always find it amusing when people moan about being 'ripped off'. I am curious how people come to that conclusion. It's fortunate we're not forced to buy such things and have a choice. I personally have bought it as I enjoy Lego and am a big Ghostbusters fan. From a cost per brick ratio it's actually a very good value set.

Great price — heat added!
Great find op....
£284.99 retail at Lego.com, superb price
I want...I had it bought for me at Christmas I had to reluctantly return it as just have no room...now I want it again.
Iconic lego, a must have for collectors great price. JLP staff get a further 25% discount on this price. One of the benefits of working for an employee owned (well sort of) business.
purchased.............. one happy kid (on the inside)
Great find ... Sadly can't justify spending anymore at present
Cheaper than Toys R Us with their 15% off!

Heat definitely added.
Fair play to anyone who wants this, an item is only ever worth what it's worth to you. I get the nostalgia I don't get the price :s
“Just”
Must resist....must resist....

....oh no just bought and paid for Detective Office before they ran out and now I've just added Ghostbusters HQ to my basket and hovering over the pay button

Don't necessarily disagree with that. However, if you want it - that's the price you either pay for it or you don't. With Lego, if you buy it at the right price you're unlikely to lose out if you then wanted to sell it on in 12/24 months. It's likely to retire soon as well.

Rip off? How is it a ripoff, they clearly advertise what the product is and how much it costs. No ones forced to buy it. It might be expensive but no ones being ripped off.

I wasn’t moaning about being ripped off because I haven’t bought it. The price is a ripoff for what the materials are worth despite the value of Lego. Doesn’t mean to say I don’t think its cool and/or want it, I just don’t have money to literally burn.

I didn’t say anyone was ripped off. The price is a ripoff, despite those defending Lego on a personal level. I in the past have also paid the extortionate price of plastic because it has been ‘cool’. I love Lego and Ghostbusters but it doesn’t ever justify not being a rip-off. Then you have the argument of, ‘if it is worth it to you’. Well in that case nothing could ever be a rip-off. Just is what it is and if I had money coming out of my ears I would buy it anyway because why not. It’s Ghostbusters!

Also, I voted hot because it is a good deal on Lego (Still a ripoff).

What do you think the materials are worth in a TV, or a car, or a sofa, ...

And how much fun can you have with a solid cube of ABS plastic of the same weight as this set? It has the same material content.
Insane price for a packet of lego.

Now do I treat myself

Thanks OP, been looking for a good price on this for a while
Must be trying to recoup the money from the masterpiece that was the reboot.

yes everyones


Must be at the vet getting done so will post with an even higher pitch
It’s a bit like apple, you don’t just pay for the bricks, you pay for the design, and all the other costs involved in producing. The bricks are the end product but not all you pay for when buying Lego.
Lego must see all the kiddults coming, you're being fleeced!
Thanks for posting. Ordered

Have some heat.
It's a cracking build, much better than some sets priced alot more. We buy them and sell them on ebay/Facebook. To our ten year old the funs in building them.
In 2010, I bought a 9yr old Audi S3 for £9k and sold it 2 years later for £4k. That was a rip off!

Anyone still feeling ripped off for the £4k they spent on a plasma TV back in 2003? I know I am!

However, still no regrets over spending £150 on a Lego X-Wing a few years ago - probably the only thing I own that hasn't completely lost its value!
