Is Pick A Brick (PAB) by Weight a Good Deal?

We're heading down to Legoland in San Diego today and wondering if the weighted option is a good value. I've found plenty of info on filling cups, different cups and how the values work out with different discounts but nothing specific about weight. It seems expensive but maybe in actuality it isn't??

    For most of the parts they offer, it is expensive.

    it is, and the selection is usually crap. at least in the uk.

    It's definitely more expensive than buying cups, unless you're after a whole bunch of flowers and the lighter elements.

    Flowers or cherries, yes! Bricks - probably not.

    So who is going to do a weight vs cost analysis?

    ^ ^^ 90 Eur/Kg in Legoland Germany. I did some calculations and got some reasonable pricing for things like 1x16 technic beams in dbg for my UCS MF, about 40p each.

    A large PAB cup from the Lego store on average weighs 395g at a price of $15 USD. So that translates to $17.24/lb or $37.97/kg at the Lego store for PAB. So when you head to the LegoLand, keep those prices in mind when you see their prices.

    Pick'a'Brick cups (not boxes) are dkr 69,95 for the small ones, and 129,95 for the large ones. You get dkr 5,- discount for refill on the small ones, and 6,50 on the large ones. That is in the LEGO Store. Usually you can't buy a whole box from them - but it seems to depend on the manager - or the policy changes every once in a while.

    In LEGOLAND you can buy bricks by weight - 100 grams costs dkr 69,95 (as far as I remember) - and it certainly isn't a good deal.
