Glad I did check all of the boxes before simply dumping them into the cardboard-container in our neighborhood… 😁
Was it just those 3 bags?
Such a magnificent ship! She definitely makes quite the impression. It's really hard (at least it was for me) to truly grasp the size of the build until you're holding it in your hands or comparing it with some other ships (I have some comparison photos I'll share a bit later). I'll admit that my camera setup isn't the greatest, but this is really difficult to get fully in frame! Standing at 2 feet tall and 2-1/2 feet long, she's 'uge!
I again just am super thankful to @gratefulnat for selling me this beauty!
There aren't many ships left to fill the collection... maybe a couple of PotC boats...
I wish I'd been out of my DA when this was released. I've got PoBB and really need a good "good guys" ship to go with it, so I'm hoping that TLG one day release something similar to this again.
A wee bit of size comparison with 2009's Brickbeard's Bounty.
(Remember fellas, size doesn't matter... 🤣}
We have this mental picture of pirate ships as large and heavily armed, but most were up-gunned small merchies that the 32-gun Queen Anne's Revenge looked like a battleship in comparison to.
On the status side... Bought a lot of minifigs very randomly put together, very poor picture quality, but I did see Boromir's torso and legs, then his hair on another fig. Heads are impossible to distinguish. Then saw the Sam torso with Cape and hair on another fig. That was enough for me to order. Anxious to find out what the other 78 figs are (although most are 2000-2010 era town/city/other random stuff, but also saw some castle helmets and torsos).
Anyway Thursday can't come quick enough... Super excited.
Do you have one by any chance? The hair piece is almost as much as the entire fig on BL.
I hate things like a supposedly SW minifig- it's got clone trooper legs, stormtrooper torso, and a snowtrooper helmet. Okay, those are all SW parts- but then they price it at $7? No.
Or used sets that are "99% complete". What parts are missing?
Oh and don't apologise for posting images of your collection, I'm sure I'm not the only one living vicariously through you! 😂
The Flagship still ends up dwarfing even this mighty pirate ship!
Anyone ever seen that before?
The buyer agreed to the price and to pay through PayPal. Payment was initiated two weeks ago, but only just cleared this past Saturday as it came through as an eCheck. For those who have experience with such things, is there any way for this payment to not clear or be taken out of my account at this point? Can the buyer cancel the payment and leave me stuck with no LEGO and no money?
I believe it was suggested previously to wait to ship the set for a period of time AFTER the eCheck had cleared. However, just trying to clarify if that is indeed necessary? The buyer is getting anxious to have me ship. I'd like to assume this is all proper. That eCheck is just really throwing me off.
Just thankful to get this one sold!
Rivendel was built and displayed in the store. It's even better in reality than in pics.
Then went to the hypermarket nearby and they just put out cmfs. Got 5 falcons and 6 orcs.
All in all a great day.
@Gibbo1959 yes some of those stuffed animals have been there a looooooong time. The walrus went on tour a while ago.
If not, it'll be the greatest episode of Storage Wars ever!!!! ;)
"Oh, it's just a bunch of old Legos..."
(I put the "s" on deliberately!)
Falcons are not far behind, with 16 red-headed members.
It's a close race...
Now need more tan and green 16x16s...
