    assuming I do get it, I will mount it against the corner wall and make it a feature as such

    yesterday I agreed with a friend to swop three 42056 sets for this set (I will still have one), but sourcing this set is proving difficult.

    R10 800 vs R15000 Hmmmm great trade.... if you can source it.

    I am going the other route, decided to buy some Creative Expert modulars instead. (SO can help me build and plan is to put them together with Superheroes to set up a display scene on a rack above the TV)

    Checked out Brickset breakup of the MF build and its basically 10179 with some small changes and grieveling. So the urge to buy it died out. Also added is the fact that its sold out even before release so getting it might be more hassle than its worth.

    Look I might still end up getting it a year from now, just for now, I don't plan to get it right away.

    the issue that did it for me is the point you raised initially, price vs value

    the retail price seems fair if we use weak gauges like price per part and weight, but I am confident this set will hold its value for the next few years

    I am not sure why "represses" hurt the market for the original releases, it doesn't do that in the vinyl market for example

    perhaps try floating shelves if that's a space you intend committing to

    Would love to wall-mount, but I have 2 problems.

    1) Trying to avoid holes in the wall.
    2) The furry creatures that roam this here land has a tendency to jump on high spaces so if I do mount, it has to be capable of staying up with them on it.

    Lego Deathstar is not really a good set, its not even complete and from what I hear has a defect in the heat ventilation system.
