basics on buying from bricklink, ebay, etc
I have never bought LEGO online, but I'm working on a MOC for the first time that goes beyond simply digging around the LEGO box and building whatever I want. I'm trying to create a minifig scale version of my house. So I'm in need of specific parts in specific colors.
I've written down a general list of what I'm looking for, but even dinking around Bricklink is overwhelming. I was thinking I probably want to find as many of the pieces as I need from the same seller, to keep shipping costs down. Should I start with a store near me, with the highest # of parts? Also I can't believe how expensive some of these pieces are! When you need hundreds of pieces, a quarter each for a 1x2 brick adds up pretty quick, lol.
Maybe what I need to do is visit the local 'Bricks and Minifigs' store and go through their bulk bin first, haven't been there in a long time.
