Wanted: Massive Minifig Swap (UK)

edited May 2013 in Marketplace
Hi

My daughter is looking to swap out some of her spare MiniFigs in an effort to collect a full set, she is 5 and has been inspired by reading the new Character Encyclopaedia and wants to get one of each pictured in there, although i spent most of the afternoon trying to explain why she won't be getting a Mr Gold (covered in other threads :( ).

I agreed to front the swapping but she isn't allowed to spend any of her pocket money (and nor am I, which may be harder :))

Anyway here is a list of the figures she has to swap, all are opened and complete but not played with (see picture for group photo), really looking for 1-1 ratio swaps but don't mind negotiating for some of the harder to find figures esspecially as she missed all of series 1, there are a lot of spares here (over 100)

    Hi Matt,

    I think I've seen series 6 and 7 on the shelf recently. If you don't get the bride or flamenco dancer soon let me know and I'll try to track them down.

    You are a good dad to give up your elves :).
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Thanks. Genuinely these are all my daughters (well I paid for them, but I don't think that counts as ownership anymore :) ) so as long as she is happy to swap and understands what that means I am happy.
    She was very excited this morning to learn people were responding, she has a check list going now, 5 going on 15 this one.

    On the understanding front my daughter has decided the mermaids are not for trade.
    Can't have a little girl parted from her mermaids :)
  • LegobutterflyLegobutterfly Member Posts: 488
    As a big girl, with an inner little girl I could not agree more on the mermaid front, mermaids rule! :D

    Just found a Mermaid your little one can have that was spare. She can build an army of Mermaids like @kwkw with Romans. :)

    Thanks for the responses so far, all swaps where I have addresses have gone out today, my daughter is very excited. Everyone who has been in contact has been very kind.
    Just 10 more to go for a full run of 1-9 so any help would be appreciated now, happy to swap several of our spares for 1 missing fig if that helps, anything to avoid Evilbay or Bricklink and thus keep our promise of no money being spent (or extra money being spent as my non-lego loving wife points out :) )
    Thanks loads
    Matt
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Hi
    To help entice the final few swaps along I am going to offer up a few of my polybags, I don't think there is anything amazingly special here but I know a few are popular and they are just gathering dust here anyway, so as well as the mini-figures we have:

    QuitJet Poly (Sun promo) - 30126 x1
    Batmobile Poly (Sun Promo) - 30161 x1
    City boat (Sun Promo) - 30017 x1
    Hawkeye (Sun Promo) - 30165 x1
    Mirkwood Elf (TRU Promo) - 30212 x1
    Frodo (Sun Promo) - 30210 x1
    Uriki (Sun Promo) - 30211 x2

    Hope this gets some response, so close now :)
    Thanks loads

    We have some series 10's to open tomorrow so maybe a few extras there to add as well
  • andheandhe UKMember Posts: 3,741
    ^Wow! Someone swapped you a Spartan for a series 10?...
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Inching closer. Thanks for the heads up about swapfig.com I have two pending swaps there so see how that goes.
    So all that we need is:
    Circus Clown
    Skater
    Robot
    Zombie
    Space Villain

    I also have 1 spare Hulk poly still sealed and would be willing to swap that out to help get across the line.
    Thanks loads
    Matt
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Ok the Hulk poly has gone (no surprises) but I got a clown so not a bad swap. Just the 4 to go now, any help with the zombi will be appreciated, I suspect that will be the tough one to swap :)
    Thanks loads
    Matt
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    So, so close now, happy to say via another good swap I now have a zombie on the way. I am slightly less optimistic about the magician swap agreed on swapfig.com but we will see.

    So for now we are down to the last three
    Skater S1
    Robot S1
    Space villain S3

    Thanks loads to all the help so far this has been a cracking effort any help with these last three will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks loads
    Matt

  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Last Let little push to see if we can finish everything off, just the S1 skater and robot and the S3 space villain to go.
    Any help appreciated with the final three.

    I will leave feedback for everyone who has kindly helped out next week.
    Thanks loads
    Matt
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Soooo close now
    Deal done for the Space Villain so just the two S1 figures to go now....
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Ok, deal done for skater now so only one figure left to go, just the S1 robot now..... Very exciting so if there is a robot up for swaps out there please drop me a PM.
    Thanks loads

    Hi,

    Posted the fig to you today and when I got home the one from you was already delivered! Very speedy on your end and nicely packed. Thanks very much.

    Well done to everyone who has traded but come on Brickset, help this girl complete her set! Someone must have a series 1 Robot!

    Bob.

  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    YEAH HEY

    A giant thanks we are now there, trades, swaps and several,acts of kindness have completed the quest and my daughter has either in hand or en route all the figures to make a full set...

    I will pop in a massive thank you in the feedback section in a few days for everyone that has helped out but I doubt I can say this to much - THANK YOU. Everyone that has helped out has been fantastic and a true reflection of the Brickset community. My daughter is super excited and can't wait to line all the figs out and I can wait to snap a cheeky photo of her and her figs and will post up here once we have.

    Again, thanks so much

    This is what LEGO collecting is all about. Helping others complete their sets :)
    Bravo to you and I am sure you are now going to have to find Mr Gold as your daughters set is incomplete haha
    FurrysaurusLegoMom1
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Ha, I hope not. Funny though I was explaining how hard it was to find a zombie and how 'rare' it was as a figure and my daughter corrected me saying i was wrong, Mr Gold was the hardest to find... I have however set an expectation that she won't be getting one, maybe in a year or so when the Evilbay price drops down to £50 or so :)
    Furrysaurus
  • indigoboxindigobox Member Posts: 470
    Glad you managed to complete the standard sets though. You got there in the end :)
  • FurrysaurusFurrysaurus Hiding in the kitchen.Member Posts: 156
    if i manage to run across a mr. gold, i'll send it her way.
  • monkey_roomonkey_roo Member Posts: 1,411
    Ok
    Slightly annoying but it seems that the two agreed swaps I made on swapfig.com have hit snags, I.e. I shipped out my figs and the others people haven't shipped theirs (after almost 2 weeks of excuses or silence). The new site may be a good idea but until the user base ups its game I would be very wary of using this site again.

    So as a result I now need to geek swapping and look for two figures:
    S1 Magician
    S3 Space Villain

    Our figure list to swap is as above, thanks loads
    Matt

    I hope you have reported the other two people on swapfig.com. I have done quite a few trades on there (38 figures) without problem so far.
  • FurrysaurusFurrysaurus Hiding in the kitchen.Member Posts: 156
    And that right there makes it all worth while
  • carlqcarlq Ruislip Manor, MiddlesexMember Posts: 792
    That is the cutest MOC I've ever seen. The Monkey's Child is very welcome! ;-)
  • indigoboxindigobox Member Posts: 470
    That's what makes this LEGO collecting worthwhile. :)
