I think they are either using those cellophane wrappings for food or those we see used by delivery companies for wrapping items. The same you see in the airports where people sometime use for wrapping their check in items.

Why do you guys keep the boxes?
How to shrink wrap the boxes? Interested to find out. Mine stored in the store room or call bomb shelter. But my concern is in the long run, not sure if the humid conditions or mirco insects can damage the box or contents inside.

resale value depends very much on the condition of the box. investment in lego is still a thing, and there's huge demand during this pandemic

where does the shopee sellers get their lego stocks from?

Does Lego do any price control? These sellers have a much lower operating cost than LCS or a brick and motar shop, just think why would Lego allows the sellers to under cut their official retailers. Most manufacturers would want to protect the interest of their retailers.
i think they get it from malaysia or hong kong. some sell off their sets bought in sg, just so they can get the free gift.

Lego attract buyers to buy from certified stores using the free gift promotions.

What is a good lego set to collect?
Depends on your own taste. but if you are talking from an investment pov, then you have to study which sets/series have high resale value when retired.

i see quite a number of people shrink wrap their lego boxes. is it a good idea? in SG it is so hot and humid would not the wrap melt and stick to the box after prolong time?
i shrink wrapped my sets. after 5 years still can remove easily like before. shrink wrapping just prevents dust from caking onto your box and maybe keep the seals from slipping. good if you intend to resale the set sealed in box.

hmmm some of them have the new releases available at the same time as the LCS, it looks like they have access to some official sources

Yes buy and keep it sealed in the box in good condition to resell in a few years. Used sets also can be sold for profit

Buy shares better, earn more and faster.

Never think of toys as investment.
