    Not sure- there are lots of websites though. I'll let someone more knowledgeable direct you, but I feel I should add, if there are any "custom" markered minifigs (which seem to be in half the lots I get), use rubbing alcohol to wipe on them.

    thanks @SprinkleOtter . Do you recognize these sets?

    Is there a thread out there for specifically cleaning yellowing white pcs?
    What I read about whitening bricks that are yellowing was to put them in a container with hydrogen peroxide and leave them out in the sun for a while (I left them out for around 24 hours). This worked perfectly for me when I cleaned up my #7191 that started yellowing.

    I think the top one is sith night speeder #7957

    Top one is Sith Nightspeeder (There are no Sith in the set, but whatever...).

    Bottom is from a Star Wars Brickmaster kit. Hunt for the Crystal, I think is the name.

    How'd did you come about this gold mine?  Just a random Craigslist ad?  Friend of a family member?  Seems like a once in a lifetime find for the uninitiated.
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    @Dedgecko Just found it on CL and acted quickly. I know now as I have been really digging into the boxes how lucky I was.

    Which Castle,Creator and Ninjago sets?
  • tmgm528tmgm528 Member Posts: 454
    I'm rather curious on Space Police and Power Miners!
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,107
    How about a full list of all the sets? I know I'd be interested to see. :-)

    I will try and put a list up this weekend. I will also be finding out what is lurking in this box, there appears to be some large sets bubble wrapped underneath all the clutter at the top.

    ^^ Looks like a Devastator is in there... 
  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    Devastator?
  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    ^^^^ Penguin Sub isn't clutter...
  • carnage717carnage717 U.S.AMember Posts: 166
    Yeah that penguin sub and Robin sub are nice little finds in that box. Wonder how many more Batman 1 sets are there.

    Devastator?
    Yellow/Green Transformers?  Construction vehicles that have never been in Lego form...


  • SprinkleOtterSprinkleOtter Member Posts: 2,731
    ^ Oh. Sorry, too many other devastators out there.
  • DevastatorDevastator Member Posts: 66
    Since you all asked my opinion, I'll chime in. I am thoroughly enjoying this thread. Keep updating us on what sets you find!

    Let us know what is in the bubble rap!  I wish I could find a lot like this. 
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    ^^ I'l probably get into it tomorrow afternoon. 
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    Never made it to the new box today, decided to exercise and go to the beach, should be able to get to it tom.

    Ha. You are showing a lot of restraint. I'd have looked through all the boxes and bubble wrap day one =)

    ^^ I like waiting to find out, the anticipation of what is lurking at the bottom of the box keeps me going, otherwise the process may become stale and no longer fun. I spend most of my free time on this project and I don't want to come out of it feeling burnt out, I want to feel satisfied. I only came out of my dark ages 1.5 years ago, so the hobby is still new to me. . The building, breaking down a set without losing pieces, knowing what the market value of a set is, sorting and entering my spare parts to Rebrickable and just cataloging has aided my ability to get thru this. Oh and I can't forget about all you Bricksetters, I have been educated reading this forum

    After I put up that post I heard the legos calling so I opened a little bin and found these 3 sets.

    Such an odd mix of sets!
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    This was a messy box, lots of loose pcs.

  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    This I might need some help with, is this a big set or simply many small sets?

  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481
    ^^^^Sorry forgot to put the picture of for the former post.

    ^I'm calling #7775 which looks like most of it.  Missing the squid thing though, and looks like you've got some extras in there too.
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 ChicagoMember Posts: 1,453
    You  have a #7642 in the two pictures. 
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 481

    words fail me.

    the shear number of sets,
    it's hard to tell. but i think there are more sets in this lot then i own myself.

    however it is nice to know that i am not the only one who puts built sets in a tub and forgets about them.
