They were wrongly priced at £239.99 and should have been priced at the RRP of £349.99 but they said did I want them ?' if so they would honor the stickered price... so I brought both of them, they put the "discount" through as a gift card so the grand total I paid was £479.98 for both SSD's.
I am so chuffed !.
They say "a picture paints a thousand words"....
No box, no dice & no cardboard template but otherwise complete for £1.00.

Must have been returns, or they found them out the back. I love finding these 70% off (AU RRP) clearance items.
Box is crushed, but it's factory sealed. Whoever thought you could get any set for 50p NISB, especially an EOL'ed set?
I'm not a collector of Technic, but I couldn't pass on a bargain like that :-)
Quite a bit of loose bricks aswell :)
All the sets are virtually mint, with all original packing, anything there worth having?

List of manuals here. It has been over a year since we have purchased a used lot. I have forgotten how much fun the kids have sorting out sets. According to bs, that's over 9,000 pieces and $950 in RRP.
While talking to the very nice lady, named Sarah, she told me that her 2 sons were Lego mad but had lost interest so were selling there collection and would I like to have a look, naturally I said yes and she took me to a spare room where there were boxes & boxes of mixed Lego & mini-figs & it was all for sale. So I asked the Question "How much do you want for it ?", Sarah said she didn't know and to make an offer, we finally agreed on £250.00, (after her phoning her husband & him agreeing to my price). We shook hands & the 2 boys started reeling off the Lego that was there, "Harry Potter, Atlantis, Castle, Agents, Toy Story, Batman....(I did spy a Joker mini-fig), Indiana Jones, lots of those mini-figs in the little packets...CMF's).
I will post some pictures later.
So far the only bad thing is that due to a house move she had thrown away all the instruction books ;-(...........
I did thank her for filling the back of my car with Lego and for keeping me busy for the next 6-8 months.....let the sorting begin, (again !).
Piccies to follow
Lol, only 10 minutes down the road too.
I have had a look at the lady's "completed listings" on ebay and she has sold a few "lots" of different mini-figs, (probably because they are easy to list & sell), so I will have to see what mini-figs I have & don't have.
I reckon you are going to have a fun 6-8 months :o)
I was very happy to find an unexpected complete monorail 6399 in that lot - including all sticker parts :-)
* in a small toy shop I found all 2012th Lord of the Ring sets reduced for 50%
Now for the REALLY strange part. This target only opened about 2 yrs after the 7676 went out of production! So it was definitely not sitting in the back for years...was it a return from someone?
Anyway, for $60 I decided it would be mine.
