Why is the 5571 Model Team Truck so expensive?

Recommended Posts

I scrolled trough my 1998 LEGO Catalog. And on one page there was a little picture of a truck with the name 5571"Black Cat" Muscle Truck. It was a big truck. And I loved it, so I went on BrickLink and my eyes were rolling out of my head when I saw the prices. So I tried Part Out. And they wanted 100€ for a sticker sheet.

Why? Is there a story behind them? I know that the model team sets are beloved around TLC but I was too young to realize this. I just can't explain that prices.

It's a 23 year old set that was very expensive to begin with. 

Also not many stores that sold LEGO had those huge sets on their shelves.

Brickset lists it at $140, but that's around $230 nowadays.

Mostly because its really cool. Its one of the best Model Team sets ever, very realistic. That was one of the few sets that survived my 'dark ages' and I recently sold it for a good amount to support MOC habit.

Also some of the parts are fairly rare making a complete set worth more. For example the doors in black are only available in that set. Tires only in one other set (also Model Team) so 'bricklinking' from individual parts is pretty hard compared to just buying a complete or nearly complete set.
