Literally, a half ton.
I found a massive collection for sale. I would greatly appreciate your opinion on what it is worth.
I have uploaded all of the pictures here:http://imgur.com/a/XYcOe
To summarize what's here,
The garage in the first few pictures has several large bins of loose
Lego. I've weighed all of them and came up with a total of 350 pounds,
which is roughly the weight of the Lego itself without the bins, bags,
Not included in this total is a box with a partially
assembled Star Wars Death Star model. Unfortunately, this is incomplete
and dusty. The minifigures I noticed weren't all from that set and
they're not all there either. I notice there's no picture of it,
although I remember taking one. Let's say it's 75% complete.
The dining room in the following pictures has the
best stuff. There were a handful of polybags, including a couple Clone
Troopers. Easily the most valuable items are the modular buildings:
- 10182 Cafe Corner
- 10197 Fire Brigade
- 10211 Grand Emporium
- 10218 Pet Shop
- 10224 Town Hall
- 10232 Palace Cinema
Obviously, Cafe Corner is the big one.
there are two large ships, 4184 The Black Pearl and 79008 Pirate Ship
Ambush. I couldn't tell for sure that they were both complete.
The storage unit, the individual picture after that, is entirely bulk Lego in
plastic storage bins. They're almost all the same size, which I've
weighed eight of at forty pounds. At an average of five each, there are
94 bins, two of which I've doubled due to being about twice the size, I've estimated this total weight to
be about 480 pounds. Also, to clarify, this lot isn't entirely unsorted. These bins appear to be completely sorted, as different types of parts are grouped into Ziplock bags. Some bags are labeled, some bins are also labeled.
The pictures after the storage unit is the remainder of the collection.
For the most part it's all bulk
Lego. Without removing all of the contents of the drawers, and weighing
everything from there or elsewhere, based on previous measurements I
think there is roughly close to a couple hundred pounds, which puts the
grand total of all bulk Lego from each location to be very close to
1,000 pounds, if not a little more. This figure does not include the
complete, to mostly complete, sets in the listed above or below.
A few of the notable sets I found:
- 7662 Trade Federation MTT
- 75020 Jabba's Sail Barge
- 10236 Ewok Village
- 10222 Winter Village Post Office
- 10229 Winter Village Cottage
- 79111 Constitution Train Chase
- 7676 Republic Attack Gunship
- 70814 Emmet's Construct-o-Mech
- 75025 Jedi Defender-class Cruiser
- 10193 Medieval Market Village
- 10217 Diagon Alley
- 8098 Clone Turbo Tank
- 10937 Arkham Asylum Breakout
- 6211 Imperial Star Destroyer
- 8039 Venator-Class Republic Attack Cruiser
- 21108 Ghostbusters Ecto-1
would consider everything else in that room to be bulk Lego. One big
concern I have with it all is the smell. I'm not sure if this is an
issue for sure. But it should be considered. There used to be nine
cats living in that house.
I've come up with a few numbers. I've considered a value for all bulk Lego together, as if it would be sold as is in one shot, as well as broken up into smaller increments. Ideally, it would be worth a ridiculous amount. But consider that these pieces aren't being sold individually via Bricklink. And I've considered a value of all the sets listed here, assuming they are complete, or can be completed.
