Price increase expected for Lego sets
At the beginning of the summer the company lego officially announced the upcoming increase in prices for its products. However, which designers will become more expensive as a result is still not exactly known. Therefore, design fans have to be content with information from the Internet.
The first such list was provided by the thematic blog Stonewars from Germany on June 1st. In it, 105 prefabricated kits were named, for which prices will increase in the fall. And now, a month and a half later, he received an addition – the retailer Barnes & Noble issued its own list of 64 designers. Now it has become more clear what to expect in connection with the planned change in cost.
First of all, the increase in prices will mainly affect sets intended for adults and children. The cost will increase in the range of 5 to 20 percent. Although not everything is so clear-cut here. For example, the set for adults 10280 LEGO Bouquet will rise in price by 20%, however, other designers of the botanical collection remain with the same price tag.
As for the sets that will rise in price the most in terms of money, the presented list is headed by designers:
- 71043 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle;
- 42115 LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37.
If today set 71043 LEGO Harry Potter Hogwarts Castle can be purchased for $ 379.99, then in September it will be released already at 469.99 ;. Constructor 42115 LEGO Technic Lamborghini Sián FKP 37 now sold at a price of 379.99 dollars, and will be at 449.99. That is, both sets will rise in price by exactly $70. For eight designers, the price will rise by $50, for dozens – by $40. In general, for fans of the original Lego constructors, extremely “costly” financial times are coming.
