Might even be able to put some out on display, out of black boxes .. speaking of which, any tips for reducing fade (especially in a country thats underneath the hole in the ozone layer and has ridiculously strong sunshine?) ...
"Tempted to finally sort through and donate spare clothes so I have more space to store LEGO."
Did some of this tonight so Mom could take the bags of clothes to church tomorrow. In the process, I dusted some models I missed last weekend and did more BL sorting/inventorying (doesn't hurt to catch up on that, particularly after a week where I was busy filling current orders). I also listed some of my excess personal stockpile.
Finally got round to sorting and debagging a set of Batman minifigs for display in the man-cave :-)
I think fairy princess Batman comes debagged by default.
a) no need to worry
and you have way less post the me.
but i spy a windows phone.
and now i feel better again :)
what ever it was i got what you was saying :)
and for anyone who dont have dyslexia, good for you. because it sucks!
200x 1 by 2 lime green bricks €5
200x 1 by 3 lime green bricks €8
200x 1 by 4 regular green bricks €10
200x 1 by 6 lime green bricks €15
Though I would have preferred them all to be 'regular' green, instead of lime green, this colour will also be fine for 'landscaping' purposes, such as building grassy rolling hills (still want to use #79003 some day and MOC a much larger Hobbit home / bit of Shire), mountains, as well as moss covered crevices and canyons in combination with other colours such as the grey, and sand and brick yellow (dark and light tan) colours . Now I need an assortment of sloped bricks, as well as more plates in regular, dark, and lime green.
I suppose a MOC city building with lime green walls with plenty of details in a contrasting colour, to fit in with the modular sets, could be made to look good too.
It seemed like a good bargain to me. I usually buy sets, and not very often loose bricks.
I am curious to know how/where (bricklink/[email protected]/elsewhere?) other Lego fans usually buy their loose bricks, and what you all pay for them.
Anyway, I have not 'free built'/MOC'ed anything in quite a while, though this does not really qualify as a MOC in my eyes, I felt compelled to do something with them. So when I took a look at my Arkham Asylum set #10937 I decided to build a hill to put this set on.
(even though it is totally contrary to what I set myself to do, which is: take sets apart, bag them up, and put them in storage)
Don't know how far I will take it, just having a bit of fun with a limited type of green bricks for now.
(Especially when you're at 13,000, pay no mind to the scoreboard.)
I run a BL store and get most of what I need from my own inventory or from buying sets and selling the rest. Occasionally I buy from other BL stores.
A few cents each for new bricks is great. Specifically: I sell lime 1x2 2.5c, lime 1x3 4.5c, green 1x4 5.5c, lime 1x6 9c. I usually sell somewhat below site average, including those. I do have bulk discounts. So what you paid is about what I'd charge.
[I ignored conversion for simplicity since EUR is worth only a few percent more than USD right now, and I don't know how the market is different beyond exchange rate.]
I do sometimes use similar colors I already have or can buy cheaper to make a build easier.
@blogzilly Some people care about brick size more than others.
I'm going to a pokemon cards trading event on Saturday @KingAlan - or rather taking daughter to one! Hopefully get some cards for free!
On the downside, the reason for my day off was to wait in for the boiler engineer to replace a valve and to take my wifes car to our mechanic as the front suspension has collapsed. Just a £600 bill for today then!
...now to decontaminate and sanitize
Also, my snake person lower torsos arrived, with the snake cult headgear! Gonna be a nice little Conan MOC one day...
And to dispute your second point, I can think of several off the top of my head that were sold in sets worth over 3 digits. Whether that is in the current market today or previous markets that have since declined.
Anyway, technically, Chrome Vader and C-3P0 were released "in sets" as well and they both go for a pretty penny; especially C-3P0.
Smooth Leia is technically a misprint, but we can count her ;)
Jango Fett from #7153 used to go for over $100, I sold quite a few back in the good ol' days. Since the release of the new figure he has settled down to about $60. Around 2010 you used to be able to get a CC Boba Fett for roughly $50 or less, but Jango Fett from 7153 was $100! Those prices have since dramatically reversed.
Original Watto used to top $100 as well.
I'll also give SprinkleOtter the benefit of the doubt on Vader and C-3PO... those were technically "giveaways". ;)
But there are lots and lots of minifigures beyond just Comic Con exclusives and giveaways that are not well known with very small markets that cost 4 digits and sometimes 5. That's more what I was getting at @SprinkleOtter in terms of figures you probably have never heard about. Considering how much we spend on plastic 2 inch figures we're referred to as "crazies" by many ;)
In truth, Comic Con exclusives and other giveaways are just barely scratching the surface of minifigure collecting.
I'm actively trying to collect every hairpiece in every colour now, not including hat/hair combos. Eventually I hope to have a display of them all, not unlike the Hall of Faces in the House of Black and White. (but focusing on hair).
A girl can try...
I want to get to 100. There, I said it. I have a problem. But I also have no problem having a problem. So, no problem?
He is completely and utterly wrong in quite a lot of his observations this time (which is unusual for him, normally he's just overly nitpicky for comedic effect).
I might be biased though...
And happy late 3 year anniversary to The LEGO Movie!
For someone who has built a Mighty Micro interpretation of the Batman '66 Batmobile and owns a sealed #30603 - Mr. Freeze ploybag doesn't help.
