You'd be crazy to spend any money on that model. Beside its exterior looks, its a very crappy model. Basically a glorified gearbox looking like a porsche. And it's not even a very good gearbox at that.
A new ? 600-800 Millenium Falcon would make me look way less crazy for spending ? 220 om the GT3 RS
You are of course right and the mechanical accuracy of 8880 is awesome but the GT3 RS is arguably better as a display model which is my main use for it, so while it is a shame they didn't do realistic suspension geometry etc. and passed it off as "ultimate" I'm happy with it.
ooh.. that one looks pretty cool.Lately I've been thinking about adding the Porsche too, but $330 is just too pricey. It looks decent enough I suppose but it doesn't really offer anything beyond the initial wow-factor of a giant orange car.
Over here in the U.S. it never goes on sale for some reason coughPorschecough.
I did just add 42048 to the collection though, and all for just $15. A very cute little racing kart that has tons of detail packed into it. 10/10
The concept of "investing" in Lego hadn't really developed back when the original was out. Now the earnings of the few that put them away for later has been making the rounds in mainstream media several times and is known to everyone even remotely intetested in Lego. Because of this I can't see the prices developing anywhere near like they did for the first one. It's not going to be a limited run or anything.If it really is going to be that big, the only point I can see for this is to horde unopened boxes in your attic until its worth a boatload of money. I'm seeing originals listed for $8-14k right now.
