New feature: the cost of your collection
Several people have requested this feature, most recently Luciano T: If you are in the US or the UK, the total cost of your collection is now shown on your My Sets page. However, there are few things to overcome before it becomes really useful:
First, the database only contains retails prices for the US and UK. The US prices have come from the LEGOshop.com product feed and only go back to 2007. For the UK, they go back a little further to around 2001.
Second, it's only good for two countries. I'd really like to display this information for others and go further back in time, and this may be where you can help. Do you have a list of retail prices in your country that you'd be willing to share here? Get in touch if so!
Update: I've imported US$ MSRP information, for those sets which we didn't have a price for, from Lugnet, which has increased the coverage considerably. I'm not entirely sure whether that is within Lugnet's terms ot use so I am currently checking.
