I finally have something to add to this post! I'm not sure many people will appreciate this but I bought a job lot at around 70$ that included the 31 Lego Grangemouth marbled bricks in the picture below. That's about 2.50$ a piece. They are very hard to find and can sell for 50+ dollars each. By the way...if you live near Grangemouth (Glasgow, Edinburgh, etc) keep an eye out for 2x4 bricks like these because they were made in that area :D
Instead of putting the Town Hall in line with the other modulars, it's going to be a stand-alone building. Thus, the 48x48 footprint won't look quite right.
I'm thinking something like this...
(You just may not get the result you want.)
2 x #5625 plus #30008 #4899 #7798 #30083 #30012 #30042 #7799 #8033 all 10 for the grand sum of, (after a bit of a haggle), £18 and the best bit is I didn't have any of these in my poly-bag collection, but I do now :)
(On a none Lego note my son picked up a massive box of Warhammer 40k stuff for £40 plus a Ork Stomper for a fiver from a different seller which he sold on Facebook for £38 + postage)
Sorry to go off topic.....
i breathe the most dumb!
In a few days i'll be having a son, and decided a few weeks ago to have a look at toys already and what's all out there. And saw the same day a post of just a few minutes old in a local Facebookgroup of an Lady selling her sons Lego for 350,- CHF
Only a few pictures of sorted boxes and a pile of books, but hey why not. Asked her if i could take it along in the train, which she deemed impossible, so borrowed a car and to my disappointed only saw like 20 bags and no sorting boxes, from small plastic bags going up to the known big blue IKEA bags filled with all kinds of things, a few partials but mostly everything nicely separated and mixed all parts regardless of size or series. And a stack with instructions of about 40cm high, no guarantees on all pieces being there, and unfortunately no minifigures except 30 set of legs a few torso's and a few has but still a of of personal items like weapons, hats etc..(he used them as soldiers and burned them in the war.....) So yeah, but still seemed like a good deal.
First sorted at color, then every color into diff categories into 170 storageboxes i got from IKEA in the cheapest sets possible, because piling on the floor made the house impossible. And then decided to start with Bionicle since they are so easy to get together and build (Really enjoyed the Rockoh K3) After about 7 sets i had a huge pile left of Bionicle parts but no more instructions, so of to Starwars something i been looking for to do for all my life but never serious enough to actually start doing, sorting sets together ain't fun and takes a lot of time, but building sets together with my wife makes up for al of it. And while sorting came to this site, which is of huge help (thanks all) By now i'm out of Star wars instructions, but have a nice set if i may say so myself. So wondering if i should start with the technics sets, City, Spacepolice or some of the 70's/80's set for 4+ :D There's still tons of pieces left (forsure another 10.000 i think) of all sets build up to now i'm missing about 30 simple standard pieces that can be caught for just a few cents, and the rest is used but all still in good shape.
So can i brag about this sale, yeah i surely think so :)
Here's what's build up to now http://brickset.com/sets/ownedby-Edmic
And it will take years before the boy can play with it, but daddy had his fun already, and i'm really looking forward to especially buy a lot of the bigger Star Wars sets, since they are a true pleasure to build and enjoy. And i would love your help in the end in recognising some parts for if i have sets left in the remaining bricks after i have gone by the rest of the instructions.
And consider this my introduction post on this site.
(And how do spoilers tags work properly on this forum.......)
#70746 Condrai Copter Attack ($9 ea.)
#70748 Titanium Dragon ($12 ea.)
#70749 Enter the Serpent ($18 ea.)
After walking halfway to the register with one of each, I put them all back because I decided a bunch of random parts I didn't necessarily want weren't worth $50 and because someone else would likely get better use out of them as sets.
Won a goodwill auction a few weeks ago. Photos showed a bag of pieces and a tub, and a few classic space minifigs. Was hard to tell how big the bag was, but could see gray, blue, white and some trans-yellow pieces. No weight listed and it was pickup only (luckily it was at the local goodwill office). When I picked it up, the bag was huge. Ended up with 16+ pounds of pretty clean and well kept Lego and at least 60 minifigs, most of which were classic space of all colors. Lots of parts that were unique to one or a few sets. Nothing complete, but have sorted out most of #6941, #6985, #6886, #6952, #6928, #6931, #6971and #6940 (I would guess about 90% complete on each). Still have probably 70+% of the lot as loose pieces from the 80s. Tub contained some newer pieces, a couple Star Wars minifigs (stormtrooper and shadow trooper), and three sealed Creator polys (2 of #7803 and a #7808).
Not bad for $33...
A quick internet search shows just how much some of this lego is worth.
The Knight Bus alone is selling for what you paid for the whole bundle....
The Eiffel Tower is priced at 10 times the amount you paid for the bundle???
Although, I'd definitely put the work in for most of the scores I read about in this thread!
pickup from local bricklink store. no shipping fee!
when finding it, all those childhood memories popped up. sometimes as a child, i was browsing the lego catalogue for hours. pointing out sets i might want.
this set was on my list. cool figs, asthetically pleasing looks!
