Prices and more prices...
The South African Kiddywinks toy store website lists the prices for the 2H2010 LEGO Technic sets which will release there by next August. With that we can finally have an approximate figure about how much the next 8043 (Excavator) flagship will cost us.
- R2.102,00 - 8043, Excavator
- R1.277,00 - 8053, Mobile Crane
- R787,00 - 8052, Container Truck
- R495,00 - 8051, Motorbike
Listed prices are in South African Rands (ZAR).
We here also listing their prices for the 1H Technic sets and some 2009 relevant sets, whose prices didn't get reductions yet. Thus you can have a perception of what the values above could mean in terms of your local currency.
- R125,00 - 8045, Telehandler
- R184,00 - 8046, Helicopter
- R241,00 - 8047, Compact Excavator
- R376,00 - 8048, Buggy
- R644,00 - 8049, Tractor with Log Loader
- R1.180,00 - 8265, Front Loader (now above the R1.080,00 forecasted in December 2008)
- R1.984,00 - 8258, Crane Truck (now above the R1.800,00 forecasted in December 2008)
Generally for presumably the same type of sets, there seems to be a noticeable price hike. Nevertheless the 2H sets may have also an increased partcount, relative to those in 2009, which is still too early to know about.
For your convenience and to make it easier compare prices against your local currency, below there is also a table with actual S@H prices for the 1H Technic sets and again the same from 2009, as above.
Please note that individual price comparative ratios may not match exactly, when comparing across different currencies.
Please realize all the prices listed above, were manually retrieved at the 7th of January from the mentioned sources and are susceptible to human transcription errors.
Jetro, just shown me another website from an Italian online LEGO store, listing the 2H prices in Euros.
Thus a much closer reference for many of us!
There, the prices are:
- 8043 - 164,99€
- 8053 - 99,99€
- 8052 - 60,00€
