Found 21st Dec 2015
LEGO Sydney Opera House Advanced Creator Series.

Regular price is £249.99 and rarely ever drops in price. So a better than 10% discount is worthwhile and its a Hard to Find set on Lego.com.

Few years old now, could be on the retired list soon. Delivery or collection

Nice OP thanks for posting
She's a real beaut mate!
Nice but a Xbox is better
This looks great but a little repetitive to build as the sails are all the same.

I wish they would bring back the Taj Mahal and Eiffel Tower. People want silly money for them online.

If it's repetitive then make something else from the pieces, if that's possible. That _was_ the beauty of lego where the original, technic and space pieces could be merged rather than buying essentially an airfix/prefab set with only one outcome.
Ouch. Imagine standing on that on Christmas morning.
They have this for sale at the Opera House - Sorry, I don't remember the price.

£200 for Lego



Were've you been? Not my cuppa tea but there is a generation of retiring baby boomers with the time and money to splash out on Lego and relive their childhood. Buy wisely and they can be very shrewd investments. There are magazines and websites dedicated to the adult Lego hobbyist. A retired relative's house looks like a model toy shop when you step into it. He hasn't even unwrapped a couple of the more valuable kits he has bought. Another world I can tell you.
Did they always used to be so expensive? If I have kids they're getting a crate of bricks and can use their imagination lol
A mint boxed Taj Mahal is worth over £1,000 now. Once they're retired certain sets rocket in price. These are all limited editions so a great investment. Just don't lose any pieces.

Rather spend my money down the pub, but each to their own I guess

You should see the price of a mint original millennium falcon.
How can it be hard to find if it's available on LEGO.com? Practically every LEGO retailer has these in stock and you can order as many as you want at most. This isn't being retired until 2018 so you have plenty of time. BTW... the production of Tower Bridge ceases in August 2016 after 350,000 units produced (compared to only 11,500 Taj Mahal). Who wants a big box taking up space that's hard to shift?

Just curious how do you know when this item will be retired in 2018 while Tower Bridge will be in August 2016?

Where do you get the information on production stats?

350000 units of a high end item that's something like £50 million in revenue highly unlikely Lego would produce an item of this size and price in those numbers.

The numbers aren't that high at all. There was a brief period when the stock levels for Lego website were visible via Brickset earlier this year, but was quickly taken down. You can read the article here where they took a couple screen shots of said stock levels. brickset.com/art…aph

There's a chance that the Sydney Opera House is retiring soon as they have just updated the box design on Tower Bridge (new expert logo on right hand side of box) while this one hasn't. Given that Big Ben (set 10253) is due for release in the new year, I guess that explains why Tower Bridge will keep running for a bit longer.
