BendyBadger's Brickset BonusBall Bonanza - SumoLego Edition XI (October 5, 2018)
Because it is Friday, and a splendid Fall day in New York - I have returned to preside over another BonusBall.
The first fifty nine (59) unique posts get a numbered entry for tomorrow's UK BonusBall.
Please try avoid double-posts, and I am easily confused and don't count so well.
As I have a wide variety of extra sets, polys, figures and Lego-related whatnot in my inventory, the prize will be a bit of a "winner's choice". The only condition will be that whatever prize the lucky winner chooses - it will be revealed further below in thread.
The question for your consideration: What is the LEGO related item that you just couldn't keep and either had to donate or toss out?
My answer is a pair of TRU display / buildable tables that although interesting, took up way too much space and had little function. One I donated to my dentist's waiting room, and the other went to the waiting room at my office.

I have however won (on this very forum) a Lego build (below) that was designed and built by the remarkable @DeMontes that I couldn't keep, not because I didn't want it, quite the opposite but purely because I felt someone else deserved it for their achievement at the time.
It's taken me a bit of time but I've figured out what sort of sets I like building/using & that I vastly prefer fleshies
Other than that- boxes. They go, along with any instructions for small sets.
And thank you for hosting once again.
We need more hosts- any volunteers?
The catalogs might need to go first, if only because we have duplicates of some.
Maybe in the future one or other of those will change...
Thanks for hosting!
I have not much interest in the comics/games in the actual magazine though. So once I have removed the foil bag and taken out the building instructions, my wife takes the magazine to the office and leaves it in their kitchen/social room. Within a couple of hours somebody will have picked it up to give to their kids who ARE interested in those comics and games :)
Thanks for hosting again @SumoLego!
Thanks for hosting @SumoLego. Another good question that needs a bit of thinking.
Thanks for hosting.
Throw away LEGO? Sacrilege!!!!!
On the other thing though, the first rule of the Secret Donation Club is...well, shhhhhhhhh! :o)
For or me it’s all the Lego magazines and books that somehow accumulate and take up way to much space. They all get given to children in the family or down the charity shop
Bills were mounting up and just had to let him go.
Thanks for hosting @SumoLego. Hope @bendybadger is doing well.
Being the ever suffering victim of an unwanted collectors bug, I have accidentally acquired three quarters of the second series of sainsburys collectors cards.
The next few weeks may be critical to my recovery. Prognosis is not good - I have the album to put them in.
