Set Value (New/Sealed)

This chart represents the current new/sealed value of the set Bucket Wheel Excavator since December 2018. Very high accuracy
When initially released, at close to 4000 pieces the massive Bucket Wheel Excavator is LEGO's biggest Technic set to date. The also set allows you to choose between two sets of directions, building either the Bucket Wheel Excavator or the Mobile Aggregate Processing Plant. The set’s Power Functions motor allows users to activate the conveyor belts, rotate the massive superstructure and maneuver the colossal machine into position. The boom allows the user to lower the gigantic, digging bucket wheel and convey the mined material to the waiting mine truck. As the motorized shovel digs up LEGO brick rocks which are standard bricks, included with the set, they’re dropped on to one conveyor belt, up the arm of the crane, and down to a second conveyor belt. This second conveyor belt drops the bricks out the back or to the side of the vehicle. The Bucket Wheel Excavator once built measures over 16” (41cm) high, 28” (72cm) long and 11” (29cm) wide. Based on the uniqueness of the set and the very low PPP this will be an investor's dream with long term growth highly expected.

It was retired in December 2018 with a lifespan of 28 months. The current value for a new and sealed Bucket Wheel Excavator is estimated at $456 with an average yearly gain of about 4%. On the secondary markets, the typical price range for the set MISB/NISB is between $437 and $486. On the open market, a used set will fetch in the range of between $240 and $322 depending on the condition.
