Won't be so rare anymore, when everyone has them for sale on eBay

Overpriced to begin with. Its worth about £30 in terms of its size. A child won't care how rare this is. They'd rather have a bigger set which will cost you a lot less. Amazon have 33% off Lego at the minute, I'd go for that.

just ordered, cheers OP but just noticed it states 'UK mainland only', hope I can order for NI...

Actually it's pence per parts rating is high, 7.42p per part, anything near 9p is considered good, and this is still £6 under real RRP.

This is hot because its a retired set at below RRP and at half the going ebay rate, plus free postage. Not great for kids I'd imagine but for AFOLs this is great!

It's not rare it's just discontinued. They do sell for £90 on ebay but that price will collapse now. This sort of thing is what you call rare ebay.co.uk/itm…f35

Sold out - just went to buy. Only 475 available.

Price is dictated buy demand and availability with lego - is the ucs millennium falcon worth 2 - 3k? For 99% of people it's not but for other people it is.

Lego is over priced but on the reverse its one of my favourite ever toys alongside Castle Greyskull and Star Wars figures - all cheap to make but costed the earth to buy at the time

All gone.. ebay will be full of them

Yeah, I suppose its a nice winter scene - so ideal for a Christmas pressie :-)

Someone obviously confident they'll get all 5.... ebay.co.uk/itm…534

Yeah

The reason why most people can't get these deals is because there are those who buy as many as they can to flip on ebay. As a Lego collector I can see people are not paying the huge prices once commanded. Double your money for an EOL (end of line) is the preserve of the Americans. The recent Stig keyring is one example where many who got a load bragged on here how much they where going to make on ebay. The reality is they sell for around £10. after initial cost of £2.49 for the keyring, Ebay and paypal fees and free posting you will make a wallet busting £5. Hardly the £25 they where sold for last year and hardly worth bragging about. I wanted the winter set to start a new theme. I will definitely not be paying more than £55. If I can't get it for that price there is still plenty of other Lego out there to buy at good discounts. For those who bought this set to open it all I can say is well done and enjoy.

Does anyone know of any other goods sources to get the other three sets 10199, 10229 & 10222

Thanks

The page kept timing out when I went to order so I kept pressing the order button. Turns out I now have 2. I will open at Christmas but for anyone who is interested in having one (not to sell on) then let me know.

I collect Lego but to build not to keep sealed. I have never understood collecting stuff to keep it in the packaging - it's like an admission that you are not going to actually keep it, so probably don't really like it truly.

darthweb - the Cottage is currently on Lego.com for RRP - you may get it cheaper elsewhere like eBay but probably not - wait until 14th October onwards and order direct from Lego.com and then you can get the first part of the 2013 Xmas set for free, which if you don't want will easily sell £15+ or longer if you save until next year. Toy Shop and Post Office are discontinued so unless there is another mysterious finding of stock like this, it's eBay - and I'd recommend only new unopened sets as most sellers of used Lego seem unable to actually check for missing parts, and some of the bits in the Lego Exclusive sets are very hard to replace.

The above is all true but what I would like to know is where did Groupon come up with the 71% off this deal. Really do they see us all as dumb suckers who can sell us anything if they say there is a big enough discount. You'll never catch me out Groupon i'm way ahead of you in your game.

Given that its the cheapest price for this since retirement I don't think any of have been caught out. I would be interested in the legality of claiming a 71% discount on a market price as opposed to an RRP, especially when buying two for £75 was also advertised as having a 71% discount which makes no mathmatical sense to me.
