The Dragon Sanctuary set is selling higher than all the other elves set for what
it is.


For its Part count is priced really high, I see it listed as "rare" and "htf"
on fleabay and sure enough, there and here, there aren't tons of them....

New ones are selling for $200- over $260 on other platforms.

Used are selling in the $150-180 range...



This should be a $50 set used, maybe $100 new, was this set limited run or something?

It’s because of the colour code: it gives you a nice image in the right colour
(Trans-Dark Blue) but it breaks the link as the number (14) is also added to
the URL, thus making the link useless.

Any idea why it says there is one lot for sale of that blue egg top and when

It’s because the seller doesn’t ship to you.
You can see it if you go to the price guide tab.

I don't think it's because of the shipping settings (the seller ships
to USA btw.). The lot for sale is listed as super lot, so you have to tick "Include
Super Lots" to see it.

For its Part count is priced really high, I see it listed as "rare" and "htf"
on fleabay and sure enough, there and here, there aren't tons of them....

New ones are selling for $200- over $260 on other platforms.

Used are selling in the $150-180 range...



This should be a $50 set used, maybe $100 new, was this set limited run or something?

"Anyone know why Elves set 41178 is so rare?"

It is getting close to Christmas and Santa needs all his helpers. Should be
cheaper after the holidays.
