I picked up a bundle from someone selling in a FB group back before Christmas and have only just got around to looking at it.
The following are definitely here:
4842-1: Hogwarts Castle
4737-1: Quidditch Match
4840-1: The Burrow
8098-1: Clone Turbo Tank
+ I'd say at least another 2 SW sets I haven't yet identified
Very little in the way of figures so far but I'm hoping they're tucked away at the bottom. Even if they're not I reckon I got a bargain at £100. Best bit is I haven't come across any bite marks yet, seems these were built just once and then left on display.
new, sealed sets
#30226 Police Helicopter €1
#9480 Finn McMissile €1.5
#7235 Police Motorcycle €1
used, complete (or 99%) but no instructions
#8355 H-O-T Blaster Bike €1
#42026 Black Champion Racer €1
#42004 Mini Backhoe Loader €1.5
#42007 Moto Cross Bike €1.5
and (Duplo) #2711 Straight Tracks + 4x #2712 Curved Tracks + #2714 Train Crossings for €1
I'll have to go there more often (and be thoroughly disappointed 99% of the time)!
When I was in my dark years, I decided to clear out a load of stuff from my room at a car boot sale, including the giant cardboard box that all of my childhood LEGO was kept in. It had loads of classic space, castle and city sets in it, all broken up and without instructions, with 50+ minifigs.
What really gets me is that I sold it for just £5... Someone out there got a really good deal at a car boot sale in Oxford about 10 or 15 years ago. :(
But the sets! Everything is in pieces. Sorting now, but oh my, what a job. Phew!
is there any posts on here about best way to clean ready build models? I'm thinking feather duster, vacuuming with tights over the nozzle?
#10216 Winter Village Bakery
#10222 Winter Village Post Office (sealed)
#10199 Winter Village Toy Shop
Before I didn't have much of a winter village, but it seems I'll have to start one now!
Landed this beauty over the weekend. It is in pristine condition with all the interior boxes inserts, and instructions. The on/off switch is a bit fussy but it works like a champ once you get it going. One interesting thing is that the institutions are a bit vague in places and the order of building is not well thought out.
For $2,025 I was able to get the following (all 100% complete with instructions):
#10189 Taj Mahal
#10030 Imperial Star Destroyer
#10181 Eiffel Tower
#10234 Sydney Opera House
#4842 Hogwart's Castle
#10217 Diagon Alley
#10225 UCS R2-D2
#10187 Volkswagen Beetle
I also found another smaller grab bag of LEGO at the same Goodwill and it had a complete CUUSOO Minecraft set in it.
Nothing spectacular as some of these other posts, but still decent finds for the price.
Getting the wheels and battery box I need for my monorail this week, so I can start on a MOC soon! :blush:
#70141 Vardy's Ice Vulture Glider $5
#70142 Eris' Fire Eagle Flyer $10
They had several other Chima sets that he already had so no idea what they cost. They did not have a sale sticker on them so we had to take them up front to see what the sale price was
Yesterday I managed to pick up the following:-
#4726 Quidditch Practice - 95% complete with instructions, no box
#4714 Gringotts Bank - 90% complete with instructions, no box
#4707 Hagrids Hut - 95% complete with instructions, no box
#4768 Durmstrang Ship- 100% complete, no instructions or box
The incomplete sets are missing only minor bricks, the #4768 Durmstrang ship parts are in mint condition, looks like it has only been built once and has a set of printed instruction with it.
There was also a small amount of spare parts & mini-figs included as well.
Paid £60 in total
MetalBeard's Sea Cow for 149.99
42030: Volvo L350F Wheel Loader
So I came across this and bought it almost instantly. Despite lack of minifigs, I see a ton of pieces here, and plenty of rare classic parts, so I'm feeling pretty good about this as a project.
The odd thing was the pricing. The sellers had some old boardgames and they were £2 also. If I had wanted, I could of haggled and got if for £1, but I felt it safer to buy it before somebody else showed interest.
