So keep a look out for sellers unwilling to post. You are guaranteed a good price...
Roxio: I look at lots everywhere as sellers ofen accept a courier if you ask even if it states collection only. Good deals to be had that way!
We have been moving away from Star Wars over the past few years, so 8 sets are included in this lot that we do not yet own. And another b-wing to sell.
If anyone is interested, let me know and we can work something out before I list them on BL.
Just picked this up for €80 in a local ad. Delighted to get it for less than the RRP for #75020 which I haven't been able to warm to at all.
Hoping that this isn't the beginning of a downward spiral of modular purchases...
Lucky for me that in the box were also Good Neighbours at Bikini Bottom, Technic Go Kart and Flying Mummy Escape! What a steal!
#6248 Volcano Island
#6250 Crossbone Clipper
#6270 Forbidden Island
#6276 Eldorado Fortress
and (not even mentioned in the listing!)
#6249 Pirates Ambush
Just inventoried them on BL and I'm not missing anything essential, altogether just a handful of common parts. They're dirty, but 99% present and accounted for, making me quite happy.
The Architecture studio #21050 isn't available in the UK, so I figured I'd buy it from Amazon.com. A couple of months of trying, but every time I got to the checkout I was told that 'we can't ship to that address', presumably because it was in the UK.
Dropped customer services a mail last week to enquire as to why, and got a long, apologetic reply, saying 'we just don't ship some stuff overseas'.
Next day, got one of the usual 'You might like to consider...' mails from Amazon.com, and top of the list was 21050. Like a glutton for punishment, I put it in my basket and tried to check out.
And it worked!
According to tracking, it's just cleared customs in the UK. I know it's just an overpriced box of white bricks with a nice book, but who cares? I'm excited!
VB#1 I won on eBay for £22. It had a box and instructions and was built but was clearly incomplete, had no "lava pit" add-on and the figures seemed to be completely wrong - Ninjago, City, even a clone trooper helmet!
I thought, I'll see what it actually includes when I get it and then BL the rest.
Fast forward a couple of days, and I see VB#2 is ending soon quite cheaply and the seller has a #8634 too. Both are listed as complete to the seller's knowledge but with a disclaimer that there may be substitutions. (The super-cool sound brick from #8634 is noted as definitely included though). Instructions included but no box. I ended up getting them both for £45 shipped.
VB#1 arrived yesterday and is indeed incomplete - and badly in need of a wash (dusty and smoky :-( ) but after inventorising what is there and what parts I have in my own stock, I will only require about 25 parts to complete it - nothing too rare, I think. I was surprised and delighted to find that although I had indeed been sent 3 random minifigs, I also received Dr Inferno, Claw-Dette and Saw-Arm! The box was in great nick too.
So I have one almost-complete VB and hopefully another on the way, plus #8634, for a grand total of £67 (I've seen used complete VBs exceed this price on ebay). I'm a very very happy girl.
I'm thinking of merging the two sets into a giant super-villainous volcano lair MOC :-)
Now I just need #8971 for Agents completion!
In other words I bought a sealed #8104 for $18.00 so that's something.......
Although doesn't sound early as good as a Volcano base...:P
I failed to mention in my first post I had a sizeable eBay bucks certificate and was able to acquire the one I did at a reasonable price.
Hence it only costing me $13 overall. Although, @CCC, I wouldn't have minded a nice Christmas sweater instead ;o)
Real strange mix of old and new sets and figures, but I am very happy with this find!
Regular retail price here in The Netherlands is €99,99, but I have been able to acquire it with 20% Sinterklaas discount from the Department store Vroom&Dreesman for €79,99.
With a 1012 piece count, it is the biggest Galaxy Squad Lego set, and judging from the imagery of the box I think it will be a fun build, and a fantastic set to behold and own. I bought this for myself, but for those adults who will buy this set as a present for their children, I believe it is also of course an incredibly great Lego set with excellent minifigs and lots of interesting features for kids to play with.
The most recent being a vague listing of 'box of lego' for £40 online.
Little did I know a courier would deliver a gigantic box with close to 10KG off at my door!
Weirdest mix ive ever seen. Many 'new' parts including Indiana jones and star wars. Loads of minifigure accessories, hats and weapons yet strange lack of actual figures bar the odd one.
And then oddest of the lot... a number of 70s star wars figures thrown in for good meaasure!? (not even lego related!)
With the quality and quantity for only £40, I am a very happy man right now!
