    I have been trying to get my son to do this for the past 2 years. How are you going about it? Are you doing each set separately, or are you counting the total number of each piece for all the sets combined?

    I'm doing pretty much what @graphite said. I sorted all my parts according to the Bricklink categories, and reassembled my minifigures. Then I took a ziplock bag for each set I have and put the correct minifigs in the bag. After that, I proceeded by going through the part categories one by one, using Bricklink to tell which sets the pieces go in, and placing the parts in their appropriate bags, which is what I'm currently working on. After I've finished that, I plan on going through the individual set inventories to make sure all the pieces are there, and then replacing any parts that are missing. I also plan on making a spreadsheet of any loose bricks I have left at the end, so I know exactly what parts I have.

    ^ when I did it the "loose parts" left over became the start of my Bricklink store inventory. I have probably 60lbs of unsorted used parts that I doubt I'll ever get into my inventory because inventorying used parts is a pain. Parting out new sets is so much easier.

    I got a bulk order of Lego today and decided to sort on my bed (the only real place there is to do it in what is essentially a dorm room). But then I started reading the hatin' on resellers thread and looky here, it's only an hour before bed and I haven't sorted any Lego!

    Sorry @LegoMom1, didn't mean to, it was more about the fact that I had all this Lego on the bed and nowhere to put it... alas, it ended up unsorted in an unused drawer, now I've got to start the process over again.

    Went shopping and started the S11 minifig hunt today. Had much fun with my little Timmy in the process. Off to our local WHS tomorrow to see if we can add to the collection.

    HARD time deciding between the Ewok Village or Sydney Opera House, but in the end the display value of the opera house got me. Even for $70 more

    Got 1/3 through bag 2. HUGE, and SOOOO worth the money. So many great parts and techniques like I've never seen before. Definatly one of the best I've ever built.
  • legogallegogal USMember Posts: 755
    Glad you are enjoying your Sydney Opera House! Clearing the Duplo off our dining room table so we have a place to open our Sydney tomorrow and let the fun begin! Sounds like you made a good decision today....I can't understand how they can charge so much for Ewok Village...it looks like a $99. set to me. What am I missing?
  • AdzbadboyAdzbadboy London, UKMember Posts: 2,621
    These are the next four Lego sets I will be buying:

    #10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
    #10226 Sopwith Camel
    #10234 Sydney Opera House
    #10236 Ewok Village

    I have the money for #10220 and #10226. I will start saving up for #10234 and #10236 but will probably take until 2014.

    Finally took some basic photos of my San Francisco cable car I built the other week and updated my website ( http://bricktram.webs.com/ ).

    And it's only another 2 weeks and I'll hopefully be able to get to the Lego store in Manchester =D Need to decide what I want to buy.

    Just saw Nathan Sawaya's- The Art of the Brick exhibit. If you are able to get to NYC- do not miss this. It was spectacular. Also, at the end, we were given a brick that we wrote our name on and added it to a huge display. The artist will be using these bricks in a future work. Any bricks not used will be donated to a children's charity. Nice going Nathan!

    ^ Then I must have some British blood because I drink a lot of tea! Actually I was just enjoying a cup of tea yesterday while reading an e-mail from @Capnrex101, I almost spit it out when he told me he'd bought the Ewok village already!

    Purchased my first custom instructions on Ebay. Now working on creating a big 5500 piece wanted list. Pretty exciting. Reminds me of when I brick linked my ucs falcon.
  • LegoMom1LegoMom1 Member Posts: 652
    Purchased #79003 An Unexpected Gathering back in June. Have been enjoying seeing it on the foyer table, unopened, and sometimes picking the box up to give it a little shake now and then just to hear that happy sound of rattling bricks. Trying to see how long I can go without opening it. I'm starting to feel a bit weak lately...

    ^I have an easy solution to your problem. Buy a second one ;)
  • Thanos75Thanos75 Member Posts: 1,117
    Get an extra one now while they are on sale ....buy two extra ones that way you can combine them into one proper set....feels more complete that way.

    Off to Cribbs Causeway tomorrow and received a couple of Toys R Us vouchers in the post today, so may go and see if there's anything worth getting with the vouchers while I'm nearby tomorrow.

    Oh, something went wrong. Can anyone explain me in simple Englisch how I put in a link to set 9468?
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,708
    ^you can just put a # in front of the set number like so #9468
  • Peter1975Peter1975 DeventerMember Posts: 164
    OK, thanks Bumblepants.
    So, as I said, I'm working on getting the #9468

    Woo I've just received my order of greenery parts from LEGO! Lots and lots of plant 'limbs' (including dark orange!) and plants with 3 large leaves :)
  • TheOneVeyronianTheOneVeyronian Help me, I'm inside the M25! (UK)Member Posts: 1,359
    Great to see you got your dark orange leaves @Paperballpark :-) btw, those dark orange plants aren't greenery, they're orangery :-D (sorry, couldn't help it!)

  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    ^"orangery" ha ha.
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UKMember Posts: 3,403
    I got dark orange, dark red, dark green, green, olive green, pretty much every colour it's still possible to get all the plant 'limbs' in (except bright green, as I'd already got tonnes of those from the Manc PAB wall).
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    ^Where exactly did you order from? PAB?
  • TheOneVeyronianTheOneVeyronian Help me, I'm inside the M25! (UK)Member Posts: 1,359
    ^ Most likely the Customer Service Bricks and Pieces selection (a bit different from PaB as they sell a far wider range of elements direct). Same place you'd go to request a missing part, but instead click 'I want to buy a piece'.
  • Peter1975Peter1975 DeventerMember Posts: 164
    I buy mine on johnbrickstore.com
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    ^^ Thanks, better selection of minifigures to?
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UKMember Posts: 3,403
    ^ It is the Customer Service Bricks & Pieces. You can't order whole minifigs, just the component parts (hair, heads, torsos, legs etc).

    I've now finished my first MOC! :) I'll post pics in a bit, once I've taken some.
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    There doesn't appear to be an 'I want to buy a piece' option.
  • rancorbaitrancorbait Manitoba CanadaMember Posts: 1,850
    Never mind, I just turned 18 ;-)
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark UKMember Posts: 3,403
    Ta-da! Here we go, my first MOC.
