Purchasing and Investing LEGO with BrickPicker


Everything that is collectible has value. If you’ve ever bought LEGO sets before or looking into purchasing your first LEGO set, there is the retail price for the set and there is also the current value of the sets in the secondary market. How do you find the prices of the sets? You can either check Bricklink, Amazon, or eBay to find what other people are selling the sets for, which is pretty time consuming.

This is where BrickPicker comes in. This FREE service allows you to see what your “BrickFolio” is worth according to eBay using Terapeak. Brickpicker tracks the value of your collection by comparing the purchase price to the current price whether the sets or in new or used condition. You can also see the pricing trends of the sets and determine if they are a good buy or you should hold off in purchasing them. There is also a chance to win some BrickMaster Star Wars sets by doing things on the site earning BrickPoints.

If you want to see how much your LEGO sets are worth, head over to BrickPicker and set up your BrickFolio today.


LEGO Monster Fighters Haunted House (10228) Review


Artifex Creation has created a nearly 10 minute video of the new LEGO Monster Fighters Haunted House (10228). If you have seen Artifex’s stop motions and animations before, you know that they do high quality reviews and animations of many LEGO sets. At the end of the video, they have also added their own touch to the set by adding lights to the Haunted House which you can purchase on their site.


LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Confirmed For January 2013?


Sources of Hoth Brick have confirmed that there will be LEGO Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) licensed products coming in January 2013. Although there are no details on what the sets will consist of, we can speculate that the sets will be based on the new animated series on Nickelodeon debuting on September 29. This news comes to us after BrickUltra a couple of days ago broke the news that a user named chongcheng from LUGSing stated there might be products coming from the TMNT line:

“No evidence to show as yet. But a staff of a local LEGO Specialty shops say the TMNT keychains will be coming soon. Knowing LEGO, if the keychains are available, there are going to be sets. And there are going to be ninja turtles minifigs. Understand TMNT is under Nickelodeon (which LEGO already has worked with for Spongbob Squarepants), so the whole idea isn’t exactly far fetched”.

As a fan of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles animated series in 1987, I am excited to see the Turtles in LEGO form next year. I’ll be posting more details about TMNT line as they come in the near future.
