  1. I searched and could not find another topic discussing this (or suggesting we cannot discuss this). Obviously this week it's been anounced that Lego has issued a limited edition set to all it's employee's, and it's very based around 50 years of Lego Trains, with reconsturctions of some of the most classic sets of the decades including mini models of metroliner, emerald night, monorail, christmas train, blue train and western train. A large number of these have appeared this week on ebay (99% surfacing from Hungary) and all priced around the £250 mark, and it's no co-incidence that there is a factory in hungary so many employee's will have sets which they may have chosen to sell. I suspect this has annoyed Lego that so many of their employees are profiteering from what was a Christmas gift. For fans, this does provide a route to market for those willing to part with serious money for a 1000 piece set, but the discussion point is it morally right to sell these sets? One ebay seller appears to have a box containing 3 of these sets. Again, you start wondering, even if Lego did give 1 set to each employee, how would the person on ebay, have 3 sets, neatly packed in an outer Lego shipping carton? It makes you wonder if they are aquiring these in other ways? How many have opted to try any purchase one of these limited sets? They certainly seem to be selling on ebay at this price point. Paul
