Forecast Model

This represents the expected annual growth (CAGR) based on a forecast model only.
10497 Galaxy Explorer is a 1,254 piece Icons set with 4 minifigs released in 2022. It is a reimagining of the Galaxy Explorer from 1979 and was released in part of the LEGO Group’s 90th-anniversary celebrations.

The current retail price is $99.99, however, the average price on the secondary markets is around $118 which could indicate the set is backordered or temporarily out of stock in various regions. Once retired, the initial annual growth for the first year will be around 16% but will level off closer to 13% after the second year, which will value the set between $139 and $172 shortly after retirement. Due to the high expected annual gain Galaxy Explorer should become a valuable collector set worth acquiring.
