The Cost Of Your Collection

A while ago I got the idea to add the prices of all of my Lego Star Wars sets together to see how much money I had spent on it. To ease calculation I made the list of my sets in MS Excel and had the program add the MRRPs multiplied with how often I own the set.

I would be interested if anyone has done a similar thing and I would really like to see how much other people have spent on their collection.

I shamelessly declare my collection consists of 93 sets with a worth of 3.896,29 € :blush:.

I'd rather not speculate about that.

Since I am only missing a handfull of sets since 1999, I guess my collection is rather expensive.

And yes this seems like a "Mine is bigger than yours" :laugh:

Well i don't think i'd even dare add it up, but all the UCS sets apart from the yoda and Maul, and a UCS venator, UCS B-Wing, UCS Sand Skiff, 2 x UCS actis eta's and a UCS AAT plus probably 30K or more in loose parts :cry_sad:

Isnt this just, mines bigger than yours.

No, people are simply curious about how much peoples collections cost. As an estimate, I have 25 sets at about $1000 US.

Just Starwars? 65 euros...

55 for the Sandcrawler without Minifigs because I wanted all those brown pieces.

10 for the Yoda etc. magnet set because I wanted the dark face, the torsos and the Dooku hair.

I'm not much of a Star Wars fan at all...

2500 GBP+ (if I add on 565 GBP I'll spend later this year I will think of myself as stupid :hmpf_bad: , but LEGO SW is worth it :thumbup: )

I think I've spent about 3 euro's on SW lego. A young Obi-wan torso (and his brown cape) and Han Solo minifig (desert skiff version).

That must be a record :tongue:. There are a lot of awesome SW sets, but unfortunately I don't have the money to be venturing outside of 1 or 2 themes too often (most is spent on pirates).

What?! a e male organ?! Funny! :laugh:

Yes, spend to much money to catch up already.

And worse I'm gonna spend more the upcoming year(s)! :blush:

Especially if they make sets like the Dropship/AT-OT. :grin:

Same here, although I always try to go for bargains, trades etc... But, I don't smoke, which is a good excuse to spend your money on something else you actualy don't need that bad. That said, I'm happy I never bought the UCS Falcon or death star and just bought the figures trough Bricklink or Ebay, those sets are to overpriced in my opinion.

I started collecting in 2003 so my collection miss almost all of the first waves from 1999-2002. That maybe seems like not but are way too many sets. I own some sets of these waves but not a lot :tongue: . Currently my collection costs around $3500-$5000 mainly due to the very hard to find sets and some rare collector items :thumbup: .

Well, I started collecting back in 1999. But really only started going crazy about 2003. But bricklink works wonders!

Like Mutley and Kim, I would A. Rather not say, and B. can't be bothered adding it all up. I think i have around 165 SW sets.

But i'm sure, whoever think's they have the most, mutley wins... :tongue:

Me? I must have spent at least 300 dollars on my collection. Not so big I would say since most sets were from gifts.

Please don't call me snobby or pathetic, but I really go so far, that I can't keep track. So many minifigs, so many sets... I'm a collector though, right? :tongue:
