As for what I would personally do, I'd bring along my postage/food scale and weigh the box. You could look up the weight on Amazon.
I went to the same place where I got the above "haul" last Saturday and came a way with this "haul of just over 7kg of Harry Potter spares.
I have identified parts from the following sets:- #4701 #4702 #4704 #4705 #4706 #4709 x2 #4728 #4731 #4721 #4722 #4723 #4752 4762 #4733 #4756 #4750
none of them are complete, there are a few mini-figs & parts.
Looks like I will be spending a while completing the sets.
I paid £60 again for all these parts :)
924: Space Transporter
6970: Beta I Command Base
These ones are the firsts that I buy used, all my classic space collection sets were given to me as a gift when I was a kid: those ones were packed in boxes for almost 10 years, and I haven't finished mounting everything (fun with the kids now :smile: ).
I had most of the old stuff cleaned, but with the school holidays comes extra kids & so all that work got undone, so clean, clean again... :(
I actually made the seller some lower offers, and eventually, I managed to make a deal with her for lower than the listed price. Anxiously, I awaited the arrival. Sure enough, I opened the large box to find all the sets still sealed (the points were opened, but the track inside was clearly unused; 4563 had a broken seal, too) and in the crap condition that I expected them to be in. However, that was only on the outside. Inside, all the bags and pieces were in immaculate, sealed shape. The instructions and 1992 set catalogs were as smooth and shiny as the day they were printed. Truly, it was worth the price, and I have suddenly burst onto the 9V scene a decade too late, but in this condition, the motors, track, and regulator will last me a long time.
So far, I've only built the diesel from Load N Haul Railroad for testing purposes. I'm saving the Metroliner for a special building occasion. My plan is to take that diesel's 9V motor and find a way to convert the Emerald Night to 9V without resorting to the conventional "stick it under the tender" approach.
Seller also has 6454 but the astronaut and the lower half of the meteor are missing, not sure if I'll go for it.
Wife found it on Facebook today and asked me if it was worth £80. Yes and went straight round to collect!
I got all of these for $20 at a flea market. All of the gold on the classic space logos are near mint! I bought it from this older guy who had boxes of Lego he was sifting through to pull out the cool stuff (a lot of old space) and he had a bin filled with individually bagged minifigs with prices and he let me pick stuff out of a tray: I parted together the black spaceman this way. He had $12 on the blue spaceman alone and $3-4 on the other minifigs but he was very nice and said I could have all of this for $20 so I was very happy! He also complemented by Benny the Spaceman T-shirt. :)
Two weeks ago bought at a thrift shop a box with 9 kilograms of Lego and an almost complete #8674 :)
Now the hard job to build all the sets hidden in the lot.
There are defitely more as I have a large pile left, but these ones are the ones I am certain of.
Anyone who bought these sets must know they are worth 10x what you paid for them?
Fair Ground Mixer alone would have cost more than $80.
Is lego just another tool for money laundering in the USA? :)
