For Sale: Found Some Older Polybags If Anyone is Interested

Hello all,

I was out with the wife yesterday and came across some Lego polybags. Most seemed to be about 2 years old. I was hoping to help anyone out who did not get them the first time around:

30012 Microlight
30025 Clown Fish
30010 Fire Chief
30051 X-Wing Fighter
30040 Atlantis Octopus

Unfortunately, even though they were at a "discount" store, they were still priced at $3.99 plus tax. I can probably get these out for about $7 shipped, with a better deal if you get more than one. Let me know if anyone has any questions!

-Anthony

    Ooo - I'd like a couple of clownfish and octopus (octopi?). I'm in the UK, but others might also chime in, and you can ship to one of us (me?) and I'll distribute. No worries if you can't be bothered shipping internationally.

    @teal93mr2 - I assume the retailer was Five Below? If so, I believe they're "full price" as this seems to be part of a distribution deal directly with LEGO. For reference, here's the original discussion:

    I would take a clown fish and microlight if you can get them. I'm in the US.

    Sounds great - if you end up shipping stuff to @Savage_Steel innthe UK then please add a couple of Octopi to the order for me and I can get them from her.

    I'd love 2 X Wings and an Octopus. You could send them to Sav to send on maybe please?

    Okay everyone, looks like I am getting enough of a response to go back and pick up those polys. I will leave this open till Wednesday and pick up said quantity then. For my UK brethren, I can definitely combine into one shipment.

    @yellowcastle - Yes, five below was the store. Funny how I NEVER stepped foot in there till yesterday and found this little honeypot. S6 Minis for $3 too.

    @teal93mr2 - Definitely add it to your list of stores to check as I think their LEGO profile is only going to get better. They're also selling really neat Star Wars, PotC and Harry Potter Nintendo DS Armor cases for $5 each. Each comes with an excellent quality minifigure as well as a great tile mosaic. To date, the mosaics are such good quality, I can't even tell if they're stickers. :o)

    I'm pretty sure the Meijer by me has tons of 30040 Atlantis octopus and 30051 x-wing, and it seems that a lot of you from UK are interested. If you want me to pick some up and send them over let me know.

    I'd love an X Wing please, and thanks

    @teal93mr2 perhaps for the people in the UK you could send them to one person ( @Savage_Steel or myself. I dont mind doing it if Savage doesnt want to to that.) and then that person could ship them on to us in the UK. Would be easier and probably cheaper.

    I would like a clown fish, fire chief and X wing please.

    Cheers.

    The notes in the set guide say the octopus was sold for $2.99 at Five Below.

    @teamladd - if you wouldn't mind being distributer? I'm a bit swamped with the customs at the moment and would rather not. The armour cases sound fab too...*hint hint* ;-)
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member Posts: 4,401
    ^ Makes me want to buy a Nintendo DS! ;o)
  • TheBrickLaddTheBrickLadd Chippenham, Wilts, UK.Member Posts: 844
    @Savage_Steel yes I don't mind I can have them sent to work and then sort out in my lunch hour. What does everyone suggest to do? All pay @teal93mr2 then he ships them to me? Then I can post on?
  • MatthewMatthew Cheshire, UKAdministrator Posts: 3,734
    ^ Sounds like a plan. Thanks for volunteering.
  • MinifigsMeMinifigsMe Member Posts: 2,844
    @teamladd - thanks! That might work, but we need to pay you for postage too. Normally a large letter stamp is enough for a couple of polys.

    @yellowcastle: I did see the DSI cases with the minifigures there. They had all three that you mentioned, though not much POC. For $5, it is almost worth it!

    I will ship to one UK address since that seems easiest for everybody. Will create a post with everyone who is interested and how many of each polybag tonight or tomorrow. Should be ready for shipout on friday!
  • TheBrickLaddTheBrickLadd Chippenham, Wilts, UK.Member Posts: 844
    @teal93mr2 sounds great. Obviously we will need to sorting out shipping to me. I guess we just split the cost between all parties involved?
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 961
    @teamladd: I am really not sure the easiest way to do that. On my end, I guess I just need to collect enough on shipping to get the package over to you. Not sure the best way to distribute from there?
  • TheBrickLaddTheBrickLadd Chippenham, Wilts, UK.Member Posts: 844
    What ill do, if you let me know who has ordered from the uk then ill split the postage cost between us. I guess I will cover the cost for you to post them to me then get people to re-imburse me when I post out to them. Think thats probably the best way.

    I'm interested in the clown fish set. Thanks!
  • Cam_n_StuCam_n_Stu UKMember Posts: 368
    For the people in the UK just after one or two, there is a seller on eBay UK but based in the Netherlands ( eBay ID: sylc58 ) selling 30020, 30023, 30025 and 30026 for £2.75 each + £2.35 P&P. Which might work out about the same price or even cheaper without the onwards shipping hassles.

    I bought a Clown Fish and Lighthouse from them a couple of weeks ago and they were new, sealed and shipped quickly.
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 961
    Sorry that I have not followed up everyone! Please let me know if you are still interested, I can definitely make a run this weekend to pick these up.
  • jadeirenejadeirene US, CaliforniaMember Posts: 475
    I'm still interested in the two Clownfish and one X-Wing if possible. I'm in the US. Thanks!
  • oldtodd33oldtodd33 Denver 4800 miles to BillundMember Posts: 2,452
    I am still interested in 2 clown fish also.
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 961
    Okay definitely sounds like clown fish are in demand, I'll be sure to grab plenty of those.
  • Russell844Russell844 California, USAMember Posts: 1,874
    I would like 2 clown fish and one octopus thing please. :)
  • jadedancjadedanc USAMember Posts: 1,303
    LMK if you have any extra clown fish too :)
  • teal93mr2teal93mr2 USAMember Posts: 961
    Okay I picked them all up today. @jadeirene: You are really lucky, you got the last x-wing available! @jadedanc: I picked up a few extra clown fish, no problem!
    I will PM everyone individually with payment information tomorrow.
