Another statistical milestone was reached overnight when the value of our collective collections -- all 3.6 million sets -- passed $100,000,000 dollars.
The last time I published news about this was in January, when the figure was $79 million. Since then, 7,000 people have started to record their collection at Brickset, to bring the total number of people doing so to 43,100.
So doing the sums, that's an average collection size of 85 sets, worth $2300. This is up from January when it was 81.
The next milestone to be passed will be the 1 billion parts mark. We are currently on 952 million so I think we will pass that before the end of the year.
If I have time this afternoon I will dig through the database and see what other statistical nuggets I can uncover.
