Celebration IV Exclusive Mini-Figs Set
« on: June 4, 2007, 07:47 PM »
Does anyone know how much this set was sold for at CIV?

Apparently there were only 500 pieces available, but that's all I know.  I'd love to get my hands on one.

This piece was limited to 100 per day & if you were lucky in the raffle, then you purchase. Read that it cost $50. On the bay, that is another story.  :-\

$50?  Ouch.  Granted, the packaging is very cool, but that's pretty harsh for 5 mini-figs. 

As for the price on eBay, you sure are right Dale.  $150!

It was $25 from what I recall.   You had to win a raffle in order to purchase it.   My buddy got himself one.

IT was actually $50... winning the raffle was key.

Yet another long line I had not patience to wait in... But it looked real cool first hand.

   That is really a nice set! Am I right in thinking it comes in a plexiglass display case or is that just thin clear packaging? It's a shame they don't make cool sets like that available to the general collector. Yeah , I know about the Hasbro lic. for figures....still, even with the ton of money I have put into Legos, $50.00 - $150.00 is out of control. Any chance they put some up at Shop-at-Home like Hasbro did with some of their exclusives?
   Another thought would be selling those type of mini-figure display cases? I think alot of collectors would jump at a case made specifically for Lego mini-figures!

$150 from eBay? With that price, you can already get the Star Destroyer set (#6211) that includes all those figures! (plus Tarkin and an extra Imperial Officer)

I managed to win the opportunity to buy one of these setss, for $50, at C4.  I will be thinning out my Lego collection in the near future and this one will definetly get the axe.  Anyone interested in trading it for one of the Gentle Giant mini busts exclusive to this year's SDCC?
