Since selling my collection in 2010 I have not looked at items I had and their
current prices. But there has been a lot said about Cloud City so I looked at
prices.
Not a really good felling.
I had two sealed sets, plus one I build and put back in the box and one I parted
out. I got 3 on sale for $125 each and the other from Lego Shop At Home.
I got very very little compared to today's prices.

I am afraid to look at the prices for the original Death Star, had three, the
Statue of Liberty, I had 6, and of course all the other Star Wars sets up to
2010 which I had several of each.

And all the train sets, US and Europe.

I will stop now and go cry somewhere.

Me too brother. I had the chance to buy a cloud city boba in 2017 for $200 and
stupidly passed it up.

I sold 95% of my collection at the exact same time to purchase my first car,
including a unopened cloud city and several things of sentimental value that
have become unobtainable.

Best not to think back at the what-ifs and focus on the present and be grateful
for what we have. After all, we all could have loaded up on different assets
at the time and seen even more exponential growth of value. I also think we are
only caretakers of the things we own. The great thing about Lego is it's
longevity, so in a way it's good knowing that the Lego I own now will be
valued and enjoyed by other people in the future.

The regrets are not really overwhelming. I got close to half a million for my
collection and it took over two years. I am very thankful for Bricklink. Since
then I am selling my Simpsons collection and Wizkids Star Trek Attack Wing and
Heroclix. Not nearly as much bad regrets combined not as valuable as Lego; Lego
is really something special.
(Something funny I think, when I was have a room 27' x 26' for my lego
collection the people in the neighborhood would ask me "What is the addition
you are building, a bedroom or media room?" When I said a Lego room they
would look at me like I was crazy and change the subject." Non-Lego fanatics
just do not understand real meaning of Lego in all its different facets.)

So John—who is in the addition room now. Your Barbie’s or your cats?

The collections took over two rooms, media room and guest room. They looked
cramped and there were Simpsons items everywhere. I So now I collect movies
and quite a few special packaging. And the other hobby is building large models
which is a real hoot. I will find some pictures.

That is insane John. Out of curiosity, what are some of the Lego items you decided
to keep out of a collection like that?

It often happens. You are happy with the price at the time, then the market goes
crazy.

I once bought a few of the Lonely Mountain sets from the Hobbit, and got my money
back by selling off Smaug and the figures. If only I had kept them all.

Same with the palantir zamor sphere. Lego were selling those for about 50p each.
I bought a few for using in different vignettes, and the two spares I didn't
need got sold off for £2.50 each. They are £50+ now. 50p for a little plastic
ball seemed a high price at the time but I regret not buying more.

I have the same…
Only about 4 to 5 years ago I saw my collection of movie related minifigs was
growing month by month.
Every few months a new selection of new minifigs cumulating, I got behind in
making nice structures to show them.
So I sold my collection with, for instance the gold chrome C3PO to buy a really
nice watch.
Nowadays only this gold chrome C3PO is worth almost 10 times I got for him and
I could’ve bought the watch instantly.
Never thought some of these minifigs like BF Cloud City, gold chrome C3PO etc.
would go up this much.

The positive thing is that other items sold in the past are now worth about the
same or less than what they were sold for. It is so hard to predict what will
really rocket in value, and to keep everything that increases in value also means
keeping the items that turn out to be duds.

I bought the Mars Curiosity Rover in March 2014, not because I wanted it but
because I needed something to get to the order threshold for a gift with purchase
(The Martian Manhunter polybag) and thought I'd be able to get my money back
by selling the Rover easily enough. I tried selling the Rover on ebay once I
received and it didn't sell. I put it away to try again later and I still
have it. I also still have the Martian Manhunter polybag, which is worth probably
less now than it was back in 2014.

I know. The one I wasn't that bothered about shot up in value and then increased
in value even more. I put it away (carefully) after the initial price increases
on being sold out.

It sold out fast in the US, but in the UK it was still in stock for about 3-4
months when I bought it.

Think many of us know the feeling.

We had storage units full of such, that I liquidated (much of anyway) in two
rounds. Used the proceeds to take time off to travel with my kids, spending 24/7
with them. That period in our lives was truly carpe diem: adventuring, hiking,
climbing, camping, all while visiting the people and towns of America’s Southwest
along the way. We got to know many wonderful individuals, couples and families
on the trails and in the towns, some of whom we've stayed in touch with.

As a father, it was invaluable in their development. For me selfishly, it was
a priceless opportunity which the sell-off facilitated. The only regret I have
in selling the inventory so cheap, is that I didn’t offload more for another
year of such memory making.

As I’m sure you and your wife got some enjoyment (beyond the i8) from the proceeds
of your sell-off too. Or we could just go with Thoreau's take “To regret
deeply is to live afresh”

Not a really good felling.
I had two sealed sets, plus one I build and put back in the box and one I parted
out. I got 3 on sale for $125 each and the other from Lego Shop At Home.
I got very very little compared to today's prices.

I am afraid to look at the prices for the original Death Star, had three, the
Statue of Liberty, I had 6, and of course all the other Star Wars sets up to
2010 which I had several of each.

And all the train sets, US and Europe.

I will stop now and go cry somewhere.

Some pictures attached of what I could find.

All of us that have been around that long have tears to shed. You sold out your
collection for a good reason, to take care of family. I've sold many a LEGO
set at retail or double retail only to find out now that it would be worth 10x
that amount.

Time to start buying again John?

  Since selling my collection in 2010 I have not looked at items I had and their
current prices. But there has been a lot said about Cloud City so I looked at
prices.
