List of most valuable bricks in 10019

NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
I bought a joblot that contained 10019 and I am busy taking out the bricks for the set. What are the most valuable parts in that set. I dont buy/sell bricks, so have no idea. There must be some unique bricks in here that are expensive. I am guessing the darkred ones.

    Can't you just look on the Bricklink inventory at bricks that seem rare or unusual, then take it from there? 
    Besides, if you don't sell individual  bricks I don't really see why it matters....

    I suppose I could, but I am sure those with a rather keen interest in Star Wars sets will know what the rare bricks are. Without having to look them up. I am not really into Star Wars, this set came part of a job lot I bought that contained a few City sets I wanted.
    Since this set sells for over £400 there must be bricks that are worth a lot of money. If all the expensive bricks are present, then the buyer would proberly not mind that a few common bricks are missing.

    OK, fair enough.  But it seems to me like if you want to make £400 on the set, a little research will be worth your while.

    Basically, it's the unique parts in the set!

    The radar antenna (grey snow plough/plow piece), but mostly on the engines - the dark red discs and moto wheels, the grey hard wheels, the little printed tile is not rare but a couple of bucks, the white octagonal canopy, and the white cylinders (again not rare but you need all 52 of them...)

    I am working my way through this and have found the bricks in the photo pluss another pile of small bricks. I will find more as i am building the Citys sets to make the pile smaller.

    I was wondering where the 52 cylinders came from. I was thinking Squarebob, only 4 are used in those sets... Those dark red discs I have never seen before.

    Without box/manual the set is not worth £400. But maybe I could get at least £300 if the unique parts are present.

    The light grey/gray hard platic wheels would be your most valuable piece. I was going through my light grey hoping to find the large wheels and found a few of the smaller ones. For the geck of it, I looked them up and was surprised to see how much they were worth.
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    You made me go and look. They are pretty expensive.
  • Sethro3Sethro3 United StatesMember Posts: 819
    I picked up 6 of those wheels on eBay a while ago for $10 shipped..I was pretty excited. Although I don't know what I'm going to do with them.

    Perhaps you and THIS GUY can collaborate and source a complete set?

    Use the brickset data base.

    http://brickset.com/sets/10019-1/Rebel-Blockade-Runner

    Here are all the parts and how many sets each part is in. The grey tires for the engines in the only part (#2515) that is truly unique to the set.  
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    The list in Brickset is only 86% complete. The peeron list is complete.
  • ecmo47ecmo47 North CarolinaMember Posts: 2,101
    Didn't know that as I usually use Bricklink for parts lists. Why would it not be right?
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 444
    Not sure, but not all part lists are complete. I prefer Brickset to Peeron as the layout is better.
  • ew027ew027 Member Posts: 12
    You could import the set inventory into BrickStock, and then get the Bricklink price guide data for all the parts based on the last 6 months of sales, then sort by price to see the expensive ones.

    Bricklink or Brickset? You guys are talking about 2 different sites.

    Hinge panel for the radar. Per Bricklink, With sticker it's $75 upwards, without $50+

    Or You could use the inventory from Rebrickable (Brickset set detail page -> Links -> Parts lists -> Rebrickable).
    The parts list is complete, looks similar to the brickset list, signs parts with rare colour (and shows in the tooltip the number of sets in which it appears) and gives after clicking on a part links to Bricklink, Brickowl etc.

    I have the hinge with sticker, but sticker is in poor nick.
    I think I have most of the expensive bricks at least, so I will gather all the parts together and see how much I have. Never done that before, as I prefer to build the sets.

    The Brickset parts list is pulled from the LEGO servers, so they often will not include parts that are no longer in production anymore and stuff like that. The BrickLink parts list is, as far as I know, user submitted and then verified by another user. I'm not sure where Rebrickable gets their inventory from.

    From BrickLink: create a Want list of the parted out set and then use the Query by Shop feature to see the items with prices in shops that sell the items.  You'd have to scan the listings.  AFAIK there is no way to get it give you the part list along with the 6-month average price.  There might be a way to back into the information if you have a Seller account...  Hmm I think the the Brick Store program would work perfectly...I'll have to try it.

    ^ Yeah, if you have Windows OS download Brick Store.  Create a new inventory file, add the set and then part it out.  Be sure to set the part condition correctly; it can make a big difference on the prices.  Select all the parts (Ctrl+A) then press Ctrl+G to have it set the prices.  You can then sort by the price column.  I was surprised at the price of the (new, not used) White 8x4 wedge plates - be sure you have the specific variation.  Hence the importance of the condition.

    That option is available as a seller; when you part out a set and add it to your inventory Bricklink gives you the option of using the previous 6 month average, and the value of each part is shown in the couple of steps before you finish the process.

    Right, that helps you get the items priced.  But I haven't seen a standard way for BL to show you a set's inventory with a column of the 6-month average price for each lot.  Basically all the items that go into to determining the set's part-out value.  

    There are some other features I would like, such as finding sets that contain both Part A and Part B.  You can go cross-referencing and such, but some parts are incredibly common.  Not everyone is gonna be able to whip it into Excel and do a bunch of VLOOKUPs.

    I mostly using Bricklink to find all parts for a set I have got. I tried Brickset in the beginning but found out and read that it was not complete.  But i have never used bricklink to get price on each parts. What I do when i find a set in a lot is to first find the set in Brickset for number and then move over to Bricklink to find partlist. To find all parts.

    But in the recent case with 8039 is a bit more heavy sorting.  As with 10019 could be a lot of work to collect all parts.

    After you've Bricklinked a UCS Falcon from scratch, anything else is just a walk in the park!  In all seriousness, the main issues are availability, cost and shipping which are pretty much the same for 1-5,000 parts.  I don't think that 10019 would be that difficult to do, providing that you've got the rarer parts, although creating a decent spreadsheet to track everything is essential in my opinion.

    Im currently also Bricklinking the 10212 Imperial Shuttle. Waiting for the last ordres and then building. It a lot of parts. I though Bricklinking modular houses a lot of work but this is a bit more on the checking the parts. I may be a bit more sessoned Bricklink user since then. On the orders side it has been a bit easier than the first 3 houses.
