[FS] 100lb collection in So. Cal.

Guys, please... I know you guys would use these bricks more than me. I want it gone... I have less than half of my tiny room to use because I have my childhood LEGO taking up all the space. I am keeping one tub and my Bionicle for my kids, but this other lot of 100 lb is taking too much space and I am kind of worn out of LEGO.

*If you are in Southern California (or are willing to drive), please come take it off of my hands.

I sorted about 20 lb and decided to just try to sell the whole lot. Like I said, there is almost 100 lb of it and a couple Minecraft sets too. I don't want to ship it or part out, just take the Whole Lot. I am kind of close to LA, but can't find ANY collectors that want it... I know there are though.

There are tons of old parts like wheels with metal axles from the 60s and I have had a lot of Star Wars sets mainly. Though I had parts to a Harry Potter set from a yard sale (not sure how much of that made it into the portion I am selling?). Either way, I know there is a collector that wants it, a lot is sorted but I just want cash for a car and some other things I need more than this pile of LEGO I haven't touched in years.

I want $2,000 (it is negotiable but only a couple hundred at most so don't give me a $1,000 offer or anything). It may seem like a lot but there are a lot of old Bricks and elements. I am keeping a lot of the modern bricks, but all of my old baseplates and 60s-90s bricks. I remember I had a lot of Alien magnet parts and stuff from the 90s too. I can send more pics and answer questions if you text me at (661)-632-6570.

I have loved LEGO all my life, but this is too much. I know some of you guys want it, but I can't find anybody. Please come take it away, man.

Thanks,
-Jo

    I know it's probably just an exaggeration, but you said that the LEGO takes up half of your room. Those tubs take up a few square feet at most- was there actually more not shown?

    Also, I don't see anything particularly rare or interesting here. It may help for you to list off any larger sets that you have.

    Also the thread title makes it sound like you are giving it away... kinda deceptive.

    Also mods should this not be in Marketplace.  @CapnRex101, @drdavewatford

    I suppose this should be in the Marketplace, but with the attached commentary, perhaps not.

    My two cents - if someone wants to 'come take' away my collection for $500,000.00 - I will do you one better and pack it up and deliver it to you.  Wire transfers in advance only, PM me!

    Also I'm seeing some broken pieces and possible non-LEGO pieces in there. Yeah, this lot needs some serious sorting. You might want to post it on Craigslist and see if anyone is willing to come buy and take a look. But again, in its current condition, don't expect more than around $500. If there are more broken pieces and non-LEGO items in there than what I'm seeing, even less.

    And old parts, if not from a specific theme (or from generic or city) are among the cheapest LEGO parts to get.

    Yeah, sorry to pile on but you paint a picture that you have Lego that you are in desperate need to get rid of, and then immediately transition into asking waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much for an unsorted lot.  You're either being disingenuous about the hardship these Lego are causing you, or you just need some help in properly sorting and/or valuing your stash.  In which case, I'd listen to the advice you've already received in this thread.
