Fuck Stock Market, go Lego!

deathDer Sammlermarkt ist so überhitzt, derzeit geben Lego-Investments mehr her, als Aktien oder Zinsen: „[I]nvestors were able to secure a better return buying Lego sets over the past 15 years than from the stock market, gold or bank accounts […]. The value of the FTSE 100 [britischer Aktienindex] is no higher than it was in February 2000, [while] Lego sets kept in pristine condition have increased in value 12 per cent each year since the turn of the Millennium.“ So 'ne Analyse hätte ich jetzt gerne mal für Walking Dead-Comics.

The largest percentage rise in price for any Lego set has been on "Cafe Corner", a model of a hotel which went on sale in 2007. The set, which has 2,056 pieces, originally sold for £89.99 but the price has risen to £2,096 since it went out of production – a return for investors of 2,230 per cent. […]

Mr Maciorowski said tens of thousands of investors across the world were pushing up prices of rarer sets. […] The most popular type of Lego is Star Wars themed, accounting for 10 of the 20 most expensive sets. The Ultimate Collector's Millennium Falcon is the most expensive, having gone from a retail price of £342.49 in 2007 to £2,712 today. Two slightly earlier models, the Death Star II and Imperial Star Destroyer, which were released in 2005 and 2002 respectively, also fetch more than £1,000.
