I wrote to the seller last night shortly after the ad posted (offering to meet in person and pay cash -- no way I would do this one any other way) and got no response. I suspect the lack of response proves it was not legit.
I am almost sure it is a scam, but a part of me wonders . . . . Anyone else bite?
The brag bit? Done in full knowledge and agreement of the other half to create a Halloween display for the lounge - first time Lego of that size will be allowed on display! (we did have team gb figs out during the Olympics and Paralympics!)
Also on same day, I got to grab a #8274 Combine Harvester for $60 on eBay also. Haven't received that one yet but waiting patiently :)
This was my first set as a kid and next to the Galaxy Explorer by far my favorite vintage set.
Lot also had some complete classic space sets including #6951. Not bad for a lazy Sunday afternoon!
My best find was a troll mountain fortress from a second hand shop for 4 bucks. only had 4 complete(i think) figures, 1 figure - minus the right torso, a figure w/o the legs, and the "minus the right torso" was the female torso. Bought it months ago and haven't decided what to do with it yet. but for now, i'm using 2 45 degree angle pieces for a project.
7955, 7946 (King's Castle!), 7949, 7953, 7187, 7947, 7948, 7188, 7950, 6918, 7189.
I paid $140. No boxes, some sets missing instructions. Priced out the grand total for all of the missing pieces: $3.50! A lot of these sets are tee-ninsey, but King's Castle and Mill Village Raid are worth it alone.
7078, 7090, 7094 (King's Castle Siege -- yeah!), 7040, 7038, 7037. Paid $75. Instructions for all but no boxes.
An important caveat for Haul 2: I still have to sort through the rest of the lady's collection to get the rest of the parts. She swears she's got all the figurines, including the red/black dragon. This sorting involves sitting in a basement that smells of cat pee and digging through dusty tubs of legos. Totally worth it!
I think when I go back I'm going to bring her some little gift as a thank you. She has been super nice for letting me do this.
@Brickarmor If it makes you feel any better, there was one spot in the tub where a cat had clearly peed on the legos a while ago. >:P I still have to get the dragon pieces, though; hopefully they have not been similarly desecrated.
This did, though. I was (am) feeling really stupid for blowing all my (wife's) money this summer, missing out on these crazy modular and SW sales folks properly gaga over now. So I got #2505 in a one-creased box for $44. It's no TB, but. Well, it's just not.
I started sorting through everything and just became frustrated (thought it was going to be fun). Besides having to clean old sets caked with dirt, I have no room or system/storage to sort everything. After piecing the Republic Gunship and parts for the chibi at-at moc, I'm dumping the rest.
The last bulk lot I bought was from a guy about 10 years older than me so the sets predated what I grew up with. I'm falling in love with the old space series as I rebuild this lot. It was a bunch of space, pirates, and castle. So much fun.
It's just so time consuming. I've spent about 12 hours so far sorting this last 35lb lot. I now have all the parts cleaned and sorted in a manner that they can be merged into my current collection. But before I do that, I'm going to build all the sets that I want to sell or display. Building will hopefully be a lot quicker now that the parts are sorted.
