Andrew Sielen who blogs at the Reality Prose has done a great analysis of the rising cost of LEGO sets, and concludes that the perceived cost of LEGO is a fallacy. yes it’s expensive, but it has always been so. Andrew Considers it all, licensed vs unlicensed sets, piece count in set, inflation changing molds, and weight of the brick. it’s a fabulous read. Take a minute and see what you think.
