It appears that everything on the baseplates is in the ziplock
The bad news being that 31117 Space Shuttle Adventure arrived without my last coin, the Octan coin, being present in the shipping box. Lego refunded my VIP points but I'm ineligible to reclaim the Octan coin to complete the set. The the shipping box was only covered with a single piece of tape so I imagine either the warehouse team forgot to put it in, or it slipped out of the sides.
I had been signed up to stock alerts for 76239 and it sold out quickly at £34.99. When I went food shopping I managed to buy it new and unused from Tesco for £8.75! I don't know why they are clearing a recent set so quickly, and one of the new and sealed pieces was damaged, but it balanced out what started out as a disappointing day.
I did as you suggested, but I tried emailing Lego instead of calling them, and I was reissued a new code, cheers. The Octan coin arrived today to complete the set, along with some Duplo for my future child and visits from my godson, and the lightbrick set to experiment with.
I'm surprised the replacement package came with no padding of any kind and still a single piece of packing tape across the middle to hold it all in - it could have quite easily worked it's way loose from the sides. Hopefully 75312 Slave 1 will be back in stock soon as that's next on my list. I could pick it up in stock from another retailer today, but as it hasn't been discounted over here, I'd rather have the points too.
I took a chance on it after watching the ABF build video and deducing it was all there. And it was 100% complete, even the spare parts.
As a bonus, it was shipped 2200 miles in two days.
Curiously Mrs. Claus’ hair and cookies, and Santa’s sack, were present. The brick-built snowman and reindeer were bonuses.
Scored #71741 for $184 shipped. The kids and I are very looking forward to building it.
It's a great build. I've built, deconstructed and rebuilt several times already
The 1977(?) Coast Guard Station is there!
I already sold on one piece of 125cm string that I already had, and that more than paid for the whole lot!
On the same day I also bought an excellent condition Frodo with DBG short cape for 50p, and a Gollum missing one arm for 25p. Not a bad day at all.
Wow, wow, wow.
Needless to say, I passed. I also passed on the local guy that wants $750.00 for a used Brick Bank...
Other random side-note, why do people think they can get 15% more than the retail price of a set presently available on both [email protected] and on Amazon. And that is presently on sale at Target? I will never understand this thinking.
Bags 1 (the locomotive) were all sealed, and everything else was in brand new condition. Building a new set from 10 years ago is the closest I will ever get to time traveling.
In other news, that post belongs in The One That Got Away and not here 😉
The seller said he’s been trying to sell it for months. I think it’s because he listed it as “EV3 Robotics module and table”, and he didn’t use the name Lego anywhere in the ad. 🤷🏻♂️
"We know what these sets are worth based on eBay and Bricklink, do not make bad offers"
I rolled my eyes and kept walking. I like Admiral Akbar as much as anyone, but $85.00 for a used A-Wing is just nuts.
And Ebay is a stupid source for prices: that's what one person was willing to pay for that item.
Them: "This is £150 on etsy!"
Me: "If it is not selling at £150 on the internet where there are refund policies if items are not as described or missing parts, you won't get anywhere near that in a muddy field with a couple of hundred people.
