but my recent bargain is a boxed complete as new 2556 Model Team Ferrari for £8
I know it can be gotten cheaper on Bricklink, but once Shipping is factored in, it's not that far off, and I had the pleasure of picking it off the shelf.
well at least I got some silver studs for 20p.
Surprised my kids when they walked in the door. In the midst of it all, 6195 arrived in the mail, & they went crazy! Unofficial LEGO Day!
Great thing is, seller's younger daughter saw all the $$$ exchanging hands & decided to sell some of hers- which is to be held for me this morning!
I played to the "desperation" of the shopowner to sell these old sets and got an additional discount. I am not into the Mars Mission theme at all, but I paid 72 Euro for both (750+pcs) sets on the spot and it only took one week to sell on ebay for 255 GBP.
It has overall worked out well. The set was basically 100% complete -- I chose to replace the glued parts but no complaints here. Definitely worth the deal and the followup work to sort through and determine what pieces were missing and the building to, you know "check that it was complete." Probably spent another $100 or so on replacement parts for the glued pieces (much of that was the shipping from multiple sellers, not actual pieces).
What would you do?
Really cool for them to give you that display jadedanc.
I guess that is one reason I don't mind going there and paying that extra $5 on the smaller sets. I went in and used my 20% email last week and that was when they gave me the display. The employees there are all nice and very friendly.
And since the LEGO stores are an hour north of me, sometimes I just run in there and grab a small set or 2.
He was also selling a bag of 700 great quality mixed bricks, also for £12 but didn't have enough cash in my pocket for that too ;)
