So, there's been a lot of controversy over the rare LEGO exclusives that were released at SDCC a few weeks ago. I personally did not go to the convention, but it got me thinking, what would I do if I won one of the super-rare figures they handed out (or a Mr. Gold for that matter)? I would like to avoid all the discussion about the controversy surrounding how the figures were handed out and whether or not the exclusives are fair, there are plenty of other forums to argue about what. What I would like to know, is what would you do with it?
So, let's stick to the following questions:
1) Would you keep it? If you did, would you ever open it?
2) Would you sell it? What would you do with the money you got from it? (the Azog figure has been going for roughly $1000 or more on ebay).
3) Insert your own crazy idea here of what you would do with it.
Personally, I would sell it. It would be really cool to have an exclusive figure, but I don't know what I would do with it if I kept it except have to keep explaining to my children why they can't open it and play with it. And if I did give in and open it (which I probably would), then I would feel tremendous remorse as if I "wasted" it. What would I do with the money? Honestly, I would probably buy my kids a couple of really nice sets and then give the rest to charity.
What would you all do?
