How it all started with at CWJoost; Used Sets. In this category CWJoost devotes a lot of attention and time in both the checking and packaging, as well as the offering of the sets on the webshop.
This category of CWJoost is also one of the reasons we pack each New Lego set as if it is a Collectors item.
With each set we use original set images, as well as photos created by CWJoost, this will also be mentioned with each set.
CWJOOST gives warranty on all sets!!!
This is a very broad category.
Not only because today there are over 100 Lego categories.
Also because Used Sets say nothing about the state, completeness and value of a set itself. State: New Condition - These sets are new in an unopened box where the seals are intact and the box itself is undamaged, in general it is often spoken of new. Nearly New Condition - These sets are new in an unopened box where the seals may or may not be intact and may have damage to the box. Very Good Condition - Sets with or without original box, the parts have slight usage traces and there are no original building instructions.
Apart from the above mentioned states, we also handle good and reasonable condition at CWJoost.
Completeness: Complete - These sets are complete with building instructions, with or without original Lego box, with or without the extra parts, this will be mentioned separately with each set. Incomplete - With these sets parts may be missing or are not original, with or without building instructions with or without original Lego box, with or without the additional parts, this will be mentioned separately with each set.
Value; Value itself is a simple word, but value determination is very complex. - Because, what exactly is value and why got the same set a different price? - When determining values, there are many provisions we look at. - With this we have at CWJoost many years of experience in Lego. - Value depends, for example on: State, the better the state, the higher the value of the set can be. Completeness, the more complete and original a set, the more valuable it can be. For example, the price difference of a high collection set can be significantly lower because the original box is missing.
Collective value, this too is a broad concept and is often used 'wrongly'. We often see that people say the following about a set; This set is no longer produced by LEGO, so is a collector item. A set that is out of production is by definition not worth more, look at, for example, the Bionicle sets, these sets are less valuable after they have been taken out of production. This is because there are no collective values on these sets, so there is also little demand for it. Children often prefer the newest Bionicle set, then one that is already one year old.
Collective value is determined for example by: edition of the set, set category, production year, offer at the moment and demand and not to forget sentimental value.
As you have read, the Used Sets category is very extensive and there is a lot to look at.
But at CWJoost we find it important to understand what, why and how in this category and it is also fun and educational!
