TheGlynreaperTheGlynreaper Banned Posts: 18
Hi there I only really started collecting lego sets last year but I have just over 50 sets from different themes
last week I bought Metalbeard's seacow which I completed in 2 days , I enjoyed building the ship so much that I actually want to buy more water vessel related sets but the problem is I only know of 1 that I can get and that is the LEGO Friends Dolphin Cruiser which im getting tomorrow and ill also be picking up the lego pirates ship along with the Elves Ship
am I missing out on any more current ones oh and i don't do ebay as I don't really trust people that much

    You have good timing. There are a lot of water vessels coming out this year. Besides the new pirates ship, there's a new version of Destiny's Bounty from the Ninjago line, a very big City Research Vessel ship, an Ocean headquarters set from Ultra Agents (which is a very cool looking high tech black ship). Most of these will be available in the second half of the year.

    You can probably still find the Lord of the Rings ship fairly easily depending on your location http://brickset.com/sets/79008-1/Pirate-Ship-Ambush

    If you don't trust eBay, you can always look on Bricklink.com. It's a site specially made for buying and selling LEGO. There are loads of trustworthy sellers there, and the site has a reliable feedback system, so you can read a seller's feedback before buying. Since it's all LEGO, you can try searching for terms like "ship" or "boat" in the sets catalog to see classic sets in your area of interest. Good luck building up your collection and have fun!

    You don't trust people that much, but you are asking a bunch of strangers from all over the world on how to build up your Lego vessel collection?

    Go to bricklink and spend a few days there you will find plenty of vessels.

    Asking for information (that is readily available) is a tad bit different from making a purchase on an online auction site.

    Got some sand in the wrong area huh?
    Just some advice- if you are bothered by that tiny bit of "trolling" you should probably swear off of the Internet.
    Not sure how he could possibly be jealous and frankly to jump strait to name calling is pretty juvenile
    So in other words- lighten up
    Frankly, I had the same thought about you overly freaking out about ebay

    There really is no reason to be afraid of eBay, if you're responsible. I'd guess the OP is a minor who doesn't have permission/independence to shop online, which is okay. :)
  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317
    My thoughts exactly
    I've ordered dozens of things off ebay and have never been screwed once
    You just have to do a tiny bit of research

    I don't think you can do that in the forum. Regardless, I was just being funny with my meme. You need to chill out :)

    @devilhead , a lot of the same people who have Ebay and Bricklink accounts are also members of this forum and trade/sell in the forum Marketplace. So, I stand by what I said :)
  • SolariousSolarious Kalamazoo, MI, USAMember Posts: 317

    Research what?

    Seller feedback, other items, rough "proper" price, what the item is supposed to contain/look like, ect.

    Whoa
    I didn't even think that was all that snarky
    Sorry to offend
    Didn't realize you have anger issues

    As a piece of advice, there are ways to pay for things over the Internet without giving away a single piece of information other then your mailing address.
    I usually use cash to buy a gift card for Amazon, PayPal, whatever.

    I think you all need to tone it back a bit....

    Why do people asking honest questions on the forum always seem to turn into debates due to snarky comments these days.

    Theglynreaper asked an honest question, why can't we just give kind, honest answers, and leave it at that. I can appreciate the memes and some of the comments, but to someone new on here who isn't used to the usual playful forum banter they can come off quite rude.

    ^ It is probably down to new users joining, then starting multiple threads without even bothering to search for answers first. And then bragging about their available lego budget doesn't help.

    I can understands OPs point on Ebay. It used to be a fun place to buy/sell, but not anymore. I am glad for this, as I buy Lego cheaply of those that do not wish to deal with Ebay. Quite a lot of people collect certain themes. And OPs quest is honest (I am only saying this as I have boats to sell...) and sounds fun.
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 449
    As for boats, I think Lego did a lot of ships for shipping companies. I have seen Stena Line, DFDS and Color line. (Scandinavian companies) I think there a loads more. There must be a list out there somewhere.

    And then sell on car boots?

    Yes- This
    And an apparent hair trigger on blowing up on people

    I honestly think its threads like this that weigh down the forum. I'm not meaning to be sour but it was started for non sensical reasons and all the posts aren't even about ships!

    Haha on a separate note my Brick Bounty is being delivered today - there, I made this post about ships. :smile:
  • NorlegoNorlego ScotlandMember Posts: 449

    And then sell on car boots?

    No... Anything worth more than around £20 I sell online and only if I get cash in the bank, I very rarely paypal involved... (The reason to sell at carboots is so I get to buy Lego cheaply before the carboot opens...)
    If you want something that floats in your bath, I have got some Star War figures from the 80s...

    The original question is perfectly valid but then the OP had to end his writings with a blanket statement "I don't trust people that much". Of course its going to invite comments that poke fun at/question why the lack of trust exists.

    If the OP had bothered to formulate his words a little differently such as "I would prefer not to ebay discontinued sets because of bad experiences with scammers/hackers", no one would have made any off topic comments.

    If you are posting stuff for a bunch of strangers to see, they aren't going to know the context of your writings. If you write out a poorly thought out post, don't blow your lid off when people take your post the wrong way.
