If the set in question (375) goes for £130'ish complete and boxed on eBay, what do you think I might be able to expect when I eBay my sealed one?
Can't imagine too many people would want a Lego set they can't build but I suppose most people can't imagine buying Star Wars toys they can't play with!

Another Lego question: I have a few sets which are open such as old technics sets which have the flip top box. When the removal men packed out stuff they put 3 or 4 sets at a time in large bags which have then been tipped on their sides and bricks have leaked out of each into a communal puddle of Lego at the bottom of the bags.
Aside from now having to build the sets to ensure completeness (looking forward to that bit!), I will be looking for a way to store them in the future where bricks don't fall out but I can place them on their sides in large boxes. Thinking of wrapping them in a clingfilmesque type of clear wrap - do you think this will be an ok way to store them or do you think the wrap might do bad things to the boxes?

Will you build it, or keep it sealed??
