During my market research this year, I found several LEGO sets that looked like great candidates to go out of stock on Amazon once holiday shoppers showed up.
When Amazon goes out of stock and there are a ton of shoppers targeting a specific item, prices go up.
Armed with this info, I published a Google Spreadsheet in my private mentorship group with LEGO sets that I was targeting for the holiday season of 2022 and beyond.
It’s still a bit early, but many of those sets have already turned out to become profitable.
Let’s take a look at a few of them.
This is a set I targeted due to a lack of third party competition and it’s history of spiking in value when Amazon goes out of stock.
I’ve sold a ton at $100 each over the last week or so because the return on investment is just too good to pass up.
If you bought 100 of these, your $5,000 would be $8,150 after selling fees once sold.
These were an obvious grab because they are a Target exclusive and it’s just a beautiful set.
Like the Minions set, I couldn’t resist nearly 100% ROI.
If you bought 100 of these, your $4,000 would now be $7,925 after selling fees once sold.
Unlike the two sets above, this one could have been had well under MSRP at $79.99 only a few weeks ago.
Here is a screenshot from one of my many Amazon accounts:
Not long after, I was able to offload some for $188 for a quick 83% ROI after selling fees.
More recently, a seller with a few hundred stepped in and is selling them for $145.
Once they run out of stock, it will jump towards $200 again.
If you bought 100 of these, your $8,000 would be anywhere from $11,000 to $15,000 depending on when you sold.
As far as investing goes, I believe they will hit $300 within the next year.
This set was an obvious target because kids love trains and how well it has performed in previous holiday seasons.
DUPLO is also underrated in general.
It was on sale for $52 on Amazon just a couple weeks ago during Black Friday week.
Selling for more than $100 was almost a guarantee and that’s exactly what has happened:
Buying and selling 100 of these would have turned $5,200 into $9,000, an ROI of 73% once sold.
After being listed for as low as $25 in recent weeks, this set has turned out to be a home run despite only existing for less than a year.
This was an easy target due to a sheer lack of third party sellers on the listing this year.
I’ve sold a boat load at over $60 each.
Buying 100 of these would have turned $2,500-3,500 into $4,700 after selling fees when sold.
Has every set on that list I created for my group become profitable? No.
However, a majority have if you bought them during heavy discounted sales over the past couple months.
Take this client of mine for example:
This is a simple game of analyzing supply vs. demand and making a small bet that has a ton of asymmetric upside.
Best case scenario? A set doubles/triples in price.
Worse case? It stays at MSRP for a while before increasing in value over the next 6-18 months.
It’s a win-win situation, considering all LEGO sets eventually increase in value in the long run on average.
