Best place to buy used sets?
First time poster here. I've been searching high and low for the discontinued Lego Creator (like #10224) that are used and therefore not a ridiculous amount of money and have struck out. You see, I have a special needs brother who in the past year has gotten obsessed with Lego. He's pretty decent (he builds at a 10-13 year old rate) and was able to complete the current Creator sets (the Cinema is his favorite) but i'm just striking out on the older stuff. Everyone seems to be hoarding them to sell brand new, which is cool, just not what I need. I can't justify paying $300 bucks (or more) for something that we'll be breaking open and building. The $150-$200 stretches my budget, but for the complex builds it usually takes Joe about 2 weeks, so it's worthwhile in my mind.
So yeah, long story short, any tips or suggestions? I really only need pieces and instructions (pieces can be an issue with used sets, I know. I can't tell you how often I make the 45 minute trek to the closest Lego Store for a piece run to fill in what's missing; the guys there all know me by name. I pray for 3D printers to come down further in price and some smart Lego dude to start cranking out hard to find pieces) so is there somewhere I should be looking aside from the usual places, like shows, craigslist and bricklink?
I appreciate any and all assistance.
