    USA Today Video/Article on LEGO investing

    "Legos" is a term I have used for almost 40 years. I would consider it more of an "American" term. Out of respect to the LEGO company, I will write LEGO bricks, but to be quite honest, when speaking casually, "Legos" still blurts from my mouth. You should be able to import your Brickset set inventory. Did you ever try or contact us with an issue? People import their sets all the time from Brickset and Rebrickable into our Brickfolio. Let me know. Thanks

    I instructed Matt Krantz, the USA TODAY Financial writer, not to use the term and that LEGO bricks and sets were the proper terms. As for the article itself, my brother Jeff and I had discussions with Matt that amounted to about 3 or 4 hours in total, on a wide range of topics. From "parting out" sets to LEGO bubbles, we covered a lot, but not everything was written exactly the way we said it or was included in the article. Overall, Matt did a nice job explaining the basics of LEGO investing IMO. I was honored to be asked to do the article and knew it would stir some pots, but overall, I feel it helped promote our site and the LEGO brand very well. It will bring new people into the LEGO hobby and that is a good thing.

    The asking price has nothing to do with the data on the BrickPicker site. The BrickPicker data is based off of "sold" eBay auctions and is quite comparable to most Bricklink sold listings. The reason why some sets sell above current retail prices is that many eBay sellers sell internationally and get paid a premium for this. The resellers will send LEGO sets into parts of the world where even TLG won't sell. I like to think of it as a needed service to the LEGO fans worldwide that don't have the ability to walk into a LEGO store and buy a set.

    I'm not familiar with the building, but it is a wonderful recreation nonetheless.

    2013 Galaxy Squad

    I would like to see another adult oriented Space theme like the old Discovery theme. A possible remake of the Galaxy Explorer would be welcome as well.
