Hey guys I was just wanting to be able to ask for other peoples advice on some of my finds on as to what I should do with them. I thought that you could put in some wisdom and maybe I can for others.

    Build it! I build everything, even sets I only buy for parts. For me, that's the joy of LEGO- building neat stuff out of a bunch of plastic bits. You never know when you might discover a new technique or interesting use for a part. Build it!!!

    Pick up #42072 at the Walmart in Waterbury for $7 and build them both

    Brickseek says "limited stock" in Waterbury, so they may have just sold out, or might have one hidden somewhere. It's a bit hit or miss, further than I'm going to drive to check it out.

    I'd give it to charity or a Children's Hospital as well. Lego is expensive and it might just make a child's day...heck even week to be given this set.

    Actually no I won't because if I do the set will be less valued set with the damaged box.
    One might are that it will be worth less the longer you "sit on it" The set is worth $15-18 and you getting it for $4.50 tells you everything you need to know about the value of the set; nobody really wants it now and probably won't want it 5 years from now. Again, you paid $4.50 for it, just give it to charity and you will feel good and free up.more space for more Lego.

    ^ This. It's not an especially interesting or desirable set, and time won't change that....

    Do this!

    Umm... can I change my answer to "donate it"? :)

    I'm changing my answer to "donate" as well. @Astrobricks gives sound advice about the trap of trying to buy "all" the Lego, and I've got over 30 64 quart tubs of unsorted backlog to prove it.

    It is ridiculous isn't it? For years I bought ANY Lego I came across from thrift stores, garage sales and clearance items. I have gotten rid of a lot but it is still too much. I now have a "collection model" that I try to stick to. I have given away a lot of my Lego to my friend's children and that gives me much joy. My daughter wants us to being a bunch of Lego to the local Children's Hospital, but I have to be selective on what to bring because I imagine the Lego has to be sterilized in some way. I'm thinking polybags and CMF's would be the best choice.

    And finally, don’t let it become an addiction that uses up all your money. Most of us have to have some kind of budget.

    I am taking trades an $$. they can be seen in the exclusive walmart 20th years Items post.
    Folks interested in purchasing those items will seek you out through the Marketplace.  There's really no need to post the same offer in multiple non-Marketplace threads.

    Sometimes, people aren't interested right now in what you have for sale.  

    I've got a pile of posters I thought would sell like hotcakes.  C'est la vie!  (Someone will want a few at some point.)

    ^ I know how you feel. Turns out Clikits and Galidor wasn't such a great investment after all...
