Comparable Set Analysis

As well being part of a strong theme in LEGO Icons. It can be benchmarked against the following group of sets. LEGO Lord of the Rings; The Fellowship of the Ring, LEGO Lord of the Rings; The Two Towers and LEGO Lord of the rings; The Return of the King. We would also suggest that the LEGO Hobbit group of sets could certainly considered but not used in our assessment. We have shown some comparison data below from LEGO The Battle of Helms Deep, LEGO Uruk-Hai Army, LEGO Pirate Ship Ambush and LEGO Tower of Orthanc. The sets below have an average annualised growth of an amazing 16%.

The data has driven a truly exceptional projected annual growth of 12% so this must be a no brainer for us with the strong theme performance and especially that of the comparable sets. A must buy as a LEGO.com exclusive, the only issue is whether you buy to build and/or invest!!
