Investment Potential

A stunning 2,000+ piece set with 4 unique minifigures and 11 animal figures, this is sure to be a popular LEGO Ideas set for builders, collectors and investors. Part of the LEGO Ideas theme, this

makes estimating post-retirement values harder as it is quite a diverse theme and the A Frame cabin doesn’t sit within a specific sub theme. We have looked at both the theme but also at some comparable LEGO sets in other themes that we think give us a decent indication that this will continue to be a popular set post-retirement and see decent value appreciation.

Comparable Set Analysis

The most comparable sets to look at are the other LEGO minifigure scale structures that have been released previously, with the most relevant being the 21310: The Old Fishing Store. Retired in 2018, the value has more than doubled in the 5 years since retirement, giving annualised returns of 20%. It will be worth keeping an eye on how 21318: Treehouse performs when it is retired, which may well be in the upcoming twelve months.

A simply stunning LEGO Ideas set that for us is definitely a must build, but one of the new LEGO sets we think will be a good investment in the longer term. The limited availability mean that discounts are going to be hard to come by and we wouldn’t let this put you off purchasing it at full RRP, not something we say that often but definitely applies to this stunning build, that has plenty of longer-term investment appeal.
