LEGO sets can cost $1,000
An interesting analytical article appeared on the BrickNerd website. It is related to the cost changes that will occur in the constructors Lego over the next 10 years. So, this publication claims that it is during this period that the price threshold of $ 1,000, or more precisely, $ 999.99, will be reached by sets.
As for specific candidates among the Lego prefabricated sets, it is suggested that some constructor from the most popular Star Wars line will become the most expensive. At the same time, a new version of the “brick” model of the famous Millennium Falcon spacecraft is considered the most likely. Recall that its first version, presented in 2007 in the thematic constructor 10179 LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falconcost $499.99.

It is possible that in the coming years there will be another update of one of these models. Given these innovations, it is not at all surprising that the cost of a game designer will break through the coveted threshold of $ 1,000.
Why sets Lego should the price go up? The reason for this will be not only inflation. In the coming years, there will be a huge number of designers in the price range from $300 to $600. These will be kits with a complex assembly process and a wide variety of models. At the same time, they will not be so large that the demonstration of the model becomes a problem. That is, improving the design performance will not increase the number of parts in the sets. But the cost of such designers will obviously increase …
