Theme Analysis

The LEGO City theme is not one we usually see as home to great investment opportunities returning just 6% annualised growth across over 800 sets and nearly 20 years since being launched in 2005. That said there have been some very successful sets within the overall theme and there are definitely some sub-themes that are better than others and the LEGO City Airport sub-theme is one of them returning annualised growth of 11%, almost double that of the underlying parent theme.

We looked at a few sets at the same price in the wider theme including LEGO City Deep Sea Exploration Vessel (60095) which has doubled in value since retiring in 2016 (10% annualised growth) and LEGO City Jungle Exploration Site (60161) which has seen 73% growth since retiring 5 years ago (11% annualised growth).

60080 Spaceport December 2016 $120 $166 38% 5%
60095 Deep Sea Exploration Vessel December 2016 $120 $237 98% 10%
60161 Jungle Exploration Site December 2018 $120 $207 73% 11%
60195 Arctic Mobile Exploration Base December 2019 $120 $132 10% 2%

Comparable Set Analysis

This is not the first LEGO City Passenger Airplane, in fact it’s the 4th iteration! That said the previous 3 have all been very popular and had decent performance post retirement and we would like to think this one will follow suit.

The previous versions include LEGO 7893 which retired in 2007 and has seen over 500% growth since (12% annualised growth) and LEGO 3181 which retired in 2012 and has seen 265% total growth (12% annualised growth).

The most recent to retire and closed to this set is LEGO 60262 which retied at the end of 2022 and has already seen growth of 32% since then.

Set Number Set Name Retired Date RRP Current Value Total Growth Annualised Growth
7893 Passenger Plane December 2007 $40 $245 513% 12%
3181 Passenger Plane December 2012 $40 $146 265% 12%
60262 Passenger Airplane December 2022 $100 $132 32% 29%

Conclusion

We’re a little torn on LEGO 60367. On the negative side is the overall theme performance, the high price per brick, that the set likely has 2 years of shelf life remaining and that there have been 3 previous iterations of the model. On the positive side, the sub theme almost doubles the parent theme performance and the previous 3 iterations of LEGO Passenger Airplane have all performed strongly post-retirement, out-performing even the sub-theme. Its one we think we may take a chance on, albeit nearer retirement date and with a discount to RRP.
