Advice for dealing with 54 gallons of legos
My son is getting ready to graduate from HS. I am trying to figure out what to do with the 54 gallons of Legos (three 18 gallon bins full) that have been sitting unused in his closet for the past couple of years. See list below.
The pieces are all mixed up, all different kinds. There are some instructions manuals intact but not a lot. There were big sets and little sets and who knows what else. Bazillions of minifigs. No boxes. Might be a few bionicle containers but that's all.
I do not have a lot of time and energy to go through and sort these out and I wouldn't know what goes with what most of the time. My son is not interested in sorting the pieces because he thinks it's not worth it and we should just give them away.
I know they are worth some money but I have no idea how much and at what point it makes sense to sort or not sort the stuff.
I would love some advice on the most sensible way to approach this problem.
Lego sets date from 1998 or 1999 through 2008 or 2009. I've listed the set types I know for sure are there. There are a lot more bricks from the themes at the top of the list and maybe only one or two by the time you get to the bottom. And I have probably missed a theme or two.
