    @Yodalicious - they're Hobbit sets.  Lots of Witch-King Battles.  And maybe a Council of Elrond.

    (And I meant 'undesirable' in that they have been sitting there since S12...)

    Hiding amongst a bin of Brown Ninja, I assume?

    Any Helms Deeps or Uruk-Hai Armys?

    I gotcha. I was being tongue-in-cheek mostly. To me (unless it's the barrel escape set...plenty of those around my area), they're all desirable.

    My one of a kind Lego Mursten bricks arrived today, but don't ask me what I paid :0D.

    @kez Nice! I am curious about the price now that you said that though. Also, it looks like the pistachio-raspberry ice cream I had yesterday downtown.

    Haha I knew someone had to ask, I paid £34 including postage from Denmark, excluding postage it works out as £7.25 per piece. All of the previous auctions I sadly got outbidded on. And now that you mention it, they do look like confectionery LOL @Bumblepants @William_Townsley :-D

    I have been yearning for the 4x4 Off-Roader (8466) to get the PP wheels & tires and stumbled on it via my local Craigslist this week. Purchased it for well under market and the seller was pleased, so everyone wins!

    ^That's amazing! I always wonder what the back story is on something like that especially since there is very current stuff in there.

    Pure luck yesterday: I stopped at a local Walmart and found the Commander Cody 75108 set for $9. I picked it up for a friend of mine. On the shelf was the Spaceport 60080 set for $58. The box was shredded, but I've been wanting to pick this up for some time. I went back today to see if it was still on the shelf and it was, so I grabbed it.

    Wow there are some bargains out there...... I don't feel quite so proud of my average saving of about 33% this year (I am quite creative with Lego spend so ALL vouchers are spent on Lego, even if they could be used for something else)

    I picked up the 60078 Utility Shuttle the other day for $20. One of my sons wanted it, so I'm going to give it to him now that I have the big shuttle set. It's hard to buy some sets because my son wants the same thing, but usually can only afford one. I've given both boys a lot of my old sets and bricks from when I was a kid.

    Our Base Exchange (Air Force Base Department Store) strangely got in a bunch of exclusives and had them regular priced at:

    Kwik E Mart - $144.50
    VW Van - $89.95
    Mini Cooper - $86.95
    Ferrari - $86.95

    I grabbed the Kwik E Mart and VW Van....they said at the register they only got 2 Kwik E Marts and a case of each of the vehicles.

    I was walking out of Barnes and Noble of all places and saw the new Ghostbusters Echo 1 that was 50% off due to some box crunchage. With an extra 10% member discount I got it for $29.39. I probably wouldn't have paid full price but looks like a nice Caddy build

    Bought the Big Ben for (converted from £) €197 at the LEGO Store in London, which is €50 cheaper than in European LEGO-stores. I love Brexit!

    €50 is a nice price, I like the hovercraft model as well.

    Was in a charity shop earlier and found 1.8 kilos of Lego for £3.50!

    I'm halfway through sorting it and highlights include:

    - a LOT of basic, mainly 2x?, bricks
    - good selection of slopes, windows, doors and parts of a slatted garage door; I'm hoping it all turns out to be there
    - two small baseplates with road to suit 8-wide vehicles
    - Tasu Leech from #75105, and Chewbacca with his stud-shooter
    - a few interesting accessories like telescopes, a gold conical Asian hat and two gold minifig trophy statuettes

    Seems like a nice mix to increase my building stock, and do a bit of trading with the SW figures... also, bless whoever donated this Lego, because they'd sorted most of the smaller pieces into a separate tub.

    Who gives sealed sets to charity? Well, apart from FairyBricks, but that's the exception that proves the rule. Or is it coz I live in Yorkshire!? :-)

    Not a clue, not the first sealed bits I've found but definitely the best. Whoever it is, if you're out there reading this, thankyou very muchly.

    I always think it's probably unwanted Christmas/birthday presents (like a lot of sealed items in charity shops) - someone was trying to get their friend into Lego by getting them a set that matched their interests, but it didn't work...
