Wanted: DC Super Heroes (also Batman/Spider-Man minifigs to complete collection (UK)

carlqcarlq Ruislip Manor, MiddlesexMember Posts: 792
Dear all,

I’ve been attempting to collect a complete Marvel/DC/Batman/Spider-Man minifig collection since last year. I recently completed my Marvel Super Heroes collection (except the exclusives, naturally, which are far beyond my Lego-buying budget) covering everything that has been released to date, and am getting close to completing the DC set. I was well and truly in my Dark Age when the first waves of Batman and Spider-Man sets came out, so my collections from those sets are fairly paltry.

Having tried, via eBay and other methods, to collect what figures I could, I thought I’d try my luck here. I've completed a number of trades and purchases on Brickset since I joined this forum, and have a fairly good degree of positive feedback here. My eBay feedback as a buyer (not seller) is currently at 359, all positive (my account name is bugwort).

If anyone (preferably in the UK, for the postal costs, but anywhere considered) wishes to trade, I have spares of most of series 1-10 (& Team GB) CMFs, opened but complete and unplayed with; and the following polys:-

#30167 Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone (several)
#30212 Mirkwood Elf Guard (4)
#40052 Springtime Scene (2)
#40054 Summer Scene (2)
#5001621 Han Solo (Hoth) (1 only)
#5001623 Jor-El (several)
#5001121 BR LEGO Minifigure (3)

Plus a largeish number of each of the last “proper” Sun Giveaway (November 2012) and a few copies of most polys from the Sun Giveaway from May 2012. (oh, I also have 3 Splinter keyrings, although I doubt they’re all that desirable at the moment! ;-) I will, of course, consider purchase, or a combination of both, if the price/offer is right (my budget is far from unlimited, hence this thread).

Please bear in mind that I will be checking relative accepted values of offers and requests, so please don’t be offended if I turn down any offers given. I hate haggling with a passion, so I’d be grateful if you come to me with a “final offer”, so we both know where we stand.

The figures missing from my collection are as follows:-
DC Super Heroes:-
#sh048 Batman - Black Wings
#sh057 Dr. Harleen Quinzel
#sh058 Scarecrow
#sh059 Robin - Black Cape and Hood
#sh060 Penguin
#sh061 Joker - Prison Jumpsuit

Spiderman (pre-Marvel Super Heroes):-
#spd001 Spider-Man 1 (light blue)
#spd006 Green Goblin 2 - decorated headgear
#spd020 Mary Jane 4 - Medium Blue Sweater
#spd031 Peter Parker 3 - Sand Blue Vest, Black Legs

Batman (pre-DC Super Heroes):-
#bat001 Batman, Light Bluish Gray Suit with Black Mask
#bat003 Catwoman
#bat004 Two-Face (black/white version)
#bat005 The Joker
#bat006 Two-Face’s Henchman
#bat008 Killer Croc
#bat009 Robin (wavy hair)
#bat010 The Penguin
#bat011i Mr Freeze
#bat013 Bruce Wayne
#bat014 Alfred the Butler
#bat015 Nightwing
#bat016 Scarecrow
#bat017 The Riddler
#bat018 Poison Ivy
#bat020 Arkham Asylum Guard, Light Flesh Head
#bat021 Bane
#bat022 Batman, Light Bluish Gray Suit with Dark Blue

Thanks for reading!

    Just to let you know, I'll be in Wales on Hols from this Saturday for 2 weeks, so while I'll be able to discuss trades (if any more are forthcoming), I won't have access to my trade goods until I get back.

    Oh, and and as a consequence of this message.....bump. ;-)

    How's the hunt for Nightwing going?

    About as good as you'd imagine...still, one's reach should always exceed one's grasp. ;-)

    My offers for trade are now as follows:

    Most of series 1-10 (& Team GB) CMFs, opened but complete and unplayed with, shipped in individual ziploc bags (I'll let you know of any I can't do - but definitely no Zombies or Elves left, sorry); and the following polys:-

I will, of course, consider purchase, or a combination of both, if the price/offer is right (my budget is far from unlimited, hence this thread).

    IMPORTANT: I'll be staying in a small, remote Welsh cottage for the next 2 weeks, with no internet connection (oh, the horror! ;-). I will try to get to a wi-fi zone every few days, but if you message me about anything on this thread, please be patient - I will respond, just not quickly. Thanks.

    Hwyl fawr am nawr!

    Carl.

    Update: I just taken delivery of a vast number of minifigs from Ed (@Jawascrump), and want to publicly thank him for his help and generosity. Thanks, Ed! :-)

    My wants currently remain as in the previous post, as do my trade offers, although I do now have several #40077 Geoffrey the Giraffe polys to add to the list (which I think is a great set, and a fun build). Happy to purchase, or do a combination of trade/purchase, if that's preferable, subject to price and offers.

    I've done exceptionally well in this thread - hope there's more offers to come! :-)

    Cheers,

    Carl.

    Update: i've acquired #spd031 Peter Parker (and Aunt May, which was not on my list) for a decent price, and agreed a trade for #sh057 Dr Harleen Quinzel. All offers still on the table, all other requests still...er, requested.

    Update: (yes, I'm still going...:-) - #spd020 Mary Jane 4 - Medium Blue Sweater acquired from eBay for a surprisingly reasonable price (US seller - so a while to wait, I'm sure).

    Dear all,

    Well, we’re nearly at the end of 2013, and I wanted to thank everyone who has helped me narrow down my list of Batman/Spider-Man/Super Heroes “wants” over the last year. I honestly couldn’t have done it without you, and I am very grateful to you all. There are now only 3 left on the list, as follows, all from the “Batman 1” category:-

    #bat014 Alfred the Butler
    #bat021 Bane
    #bat022 Batman, Light Bluish Gray Suit with Dark Blue

    - which are, of course, amongst the most expensive and rare figures from the theme. I thought, before the 2014 series start rolling out, that I’d have one last push to see if I might find someone willing to sell me one of these, or even part-sell/part-trade. If you do have one to sell, please PM me with your price; if it’s within my price range, I’ll definitely be interested.

    I’m guessing that no-one would want to trade for these (or you’d have spoken up before now! ;-), but just in case, here’s my available trade stocks again, updated:-

    Most of series 1-10 (& Team GB) CMFs, opened but complete and unplayed with, shipped in individual ziploc bags (I'll let you know of any I can't do - but definitely no Zombies or Elves left, sorry); and the following polys:-

    #30167 Iron Man vs. Fighting Drone (2)
    #30183 Little Car (2)
    #30213 Gandalf at Dol Guldur (2)
    #30242 Republic Frigate (3)
    #30231 Space Insectoid (4)
    #30230 Mini Mech (4)
    #30224 Ride-On Lawn Mower (3)
    #40052 Springtime Scene (3)
    #40054 Summer Scene (3)
    #40057 Fall Scene (3)
    #40058 Decorating the Tree (2)
    #40059 Santa’s Sleigh (2)
    #40078 Hot Dog Stand (1)
    #40079 Mini VW Camper Van (1)
    #5001623 Jor-El (3)
    #5001709 Clone Lieutenant (1)

    The 2013 Christmas Special Edition sets:-

    #40082 Christmas Tree Stand (1)
    #40083 Christmas Tree Truck (1)

    Plus a largeish number of each of the last “proper” Sun Giveaway (November 2012), a few copies of most polys from the Sun Giveaway from May 2012, and a few of each from the latest Mail giveaway (see list below):-

    #30163 Thor and the Cosmic Cube
    #30165 Hawkeye with Equipment
    #30162 Quinjet
    #30017 Speedboat
    #30200 Zombie chauffeur coffin car
    #30152 Mining Quad
    #30085 Jumping Snakes
    #30211 Uruk-Hai with Ballista

    #30056 Star Destroyer
    #30018 Police Microlight
    #30010 Fire Chief
    #30260 Lone Ranger Pump Car (quite a few of these)
    #30240 Z-95 Headhunter
    #30105 Mailbox
    #30222 Police Helicopter
    #30108 Summer Picnic
    #30251 Winzar's Pack Patrol

    (I also have 4 Splinter keyrings).
    If anyone is interested in some of these as part (or even full) exchange for one or more of the three minifigs, please get in touch.

    May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Christmas and New Year!

    Cheers,

    Carl. 
