New LEGO survey asking for your opinions on prices for huge sets

The LEGO Group wants your opinion on the price of 21335 Motorised Lighthouse, 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition and more in a new survey. 

Reddit user LordValgor has discovered a new survey sent out by the LEGO Group to gauge whether you believe the costs of 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition, 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle, and 21335 Motorized Lighthouse, as well your spending habits relating to holidays and who you buy models for. 

The survey is anonymous and no personal details are collected. Much of the survey is specifically dedicated to questions regarding the cost of 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition, 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle, and 21335 Motorized Lighthouse.  

Though it is stated in the survey, 76405 Hogwarts Express – Collectors’ Edition costs £429.99 / $499.99 / €499.99, 10305 Lion Knights’ Castle costs £344.99 / $399.99 / €399.99, and 21335 Motorized Lighthouse is £259.99 / $299.99 / €299.99.

    You need to bring prices down for the big sets, as normal working class people would struggle to pay these high prices Especially in uncertain time. So come on lego reach out to the working class people who would love to buy your creations.

    I am 59 AFOL that has gone back into Lego building a few years earlier. I love Star Wars the best, but also am amazed at the new sets that Lego offers. I have gone back and started collecting the old UCS Star Wars sets that I missed out on increasing my costs for this hobby. I deal in finance and prices have gone up across everything and Lego has felt the increased expenses. I don’t see how Lego could not increase their prices with labor, materials, shipping, etc, costs all increasing. I applaud Lego for giving us advanced notice – I don’t think I saw another company that did that. This offered us a short time span to purchase sets at the original prices. I do not think lego prices are too high for the inflation that the world is seeing, but I do hope that when inflation recedes Lego will adjust their pricing down accordingly.

    Nobody want to see price increase to be honest, especially when this is just a hobby to most of the people which putting food on the table is the most important things to do. I understand everything is going up and lego needs to do their parts. However that also means people like myself with average everything will have to sacrifice Lego to save few bucks to cover other needs. Unless price goes down I can see this expensive hobby will have to put on hold. Some set are just overprice or greedy on lego’s end because they know they will sell. Lego is a business after all.

    Over priced not gonna lie, I try to collect Legos and it’s pretty hard with the prices but I also understand that it probably cost a lot to make them to. I probably would not be to upset that they didn’t go down but it would be nice

    I absolutely love Lego and the more challenging the set the better for me, but I do find the sets quite expensive and not affordable for the average Joe. Maybe if the points collected from purchases could be worth a bit more towards other purchases would help.

    I’m a retired 64 year old. I try to buy Lego’s that aren’t over a certain price, but I did buy The motorized Lighthouse. It’s $379 Canadian which was way over my usual Lego budget, but I read the electronics included are worth $100, so that makes sense.

    great that they are taking a survey for these sets but I think a Lego Star wars survey and our opinions about their prices is long overdue.
