Lego Jeep sells for $1,049
Just saw this story over on Autoblog and they raise a great point- this vintage Lego Jeep has just sold for more than some actual Jeeps at $1,049 on eBay. The boxed model is still in its original clingfilm wrapping, which couldn't have hurt the price.
Looking at the model you probably wouldn't guess that it's a Jeep without reading the description on the box first, Lego has really come a long way since this kit came out, though apparently it costs around $30,000 to develop a new piece so I can see why they weren't so keen on the idea as a relatively young company.
