The box has to full sails for #6271 Imperial Flag Ship and I believe most of the sails for #6285 Black Sea Barracuda. Only cost me $15. The sails alone are worth more than that

It also included an extra passenger car to #10194 Emerald Night. There were also about 2500 random parts, and probably 50 minifigures.
All of that for $250!
It has taken me this long to sort, buy missing parts, and build the sets I am keeping, but now I have no space for them.
The order shipped the next day, and when I checked the tracking it said 21 lbs, which sounded pretty good for $50. When checking it later, I scrolled farther down on the tracking page, and it said "Packages in shipment: 3"... I clicked that, and it listed 3 packages (each with their own tracking number) and their weights- 21, 21, and 14 lbs. The order is scheduled to arrive tomorrow, I'm very curious as to what could make it be 56 lbs total. The pictures don't seem to show 56 lbs worth of stuff. Wish me luck!
The lot arrived! It is not anything more than what the photos showed, I guess I just misjudged on my guess of the weight. It's a lot of stuff, there is probably $100 worth of figures alone (I found more after taking that picture, including all 3 figs from the Arctic Bateman set). Very good value for $50, especially for eBay! Sorry if the pics aren't great they're from my phone.
There is also a Iron Man constraction figure that is almost complete, and worth $30 or so.
Yes, that small set is in it, but I don't know how complete it is. I probably won't be trying to build back many sets from the lot
This is not a brag but I think it belongs in this thread. Due to generosity of an AFOL who was moving on in her life, I was able to get four older modulars (GG, TH, FB and GE) with original instructions and parts for a somewhat reasonable price. I always wanted the older modulars but as a hobbyist, I was never going to pay the market rate beyond the original retail for these or any other sets. It is not a matter of what they are worth but what you can afford and willing to pay for them. The only exception to that was Green Grocer as that is a nice looking set although Parisian Restaurant seems as good. PR is what got me getting all the currently available modulars last year before Assembly Square came out.
Green Grocer was listed for $500 and after much contemplation I offered $300 (twice the retail price) which was accepted. That led to discussing the other three and all in all the four were acquired for $830 ($180 over their original retail). All four are in excellent condition and some missing pieces were provided by the seller who was really helpful in this whole process. Thanks to all on this forum who helped me in determining the original pieces in various sets.
The main reason I am sharing this is to encourage other hobbyists who want these and other older sets to build and enjoy with their kids but do not want to pay extreme market prices to keep looking. I am sure there are other Lego fans that would rather have their Lego find a good home than make a ton of profit. I am now off to looking for CC and MS at a reasonable price although I never thought I would, knowing the market and availability. And if I can’t find them at a reasonable price close to original retail ever, that’s fine. I can live without them.
Also, if someone is looking for used current modulars PC, PR and PS in northern Virginia, they may be available for an average price of $125 each. An unverified used Town Hall with original instructions may still be available around $200 around New Brunswick, NJ. Let me know if you need more details.
Also got #75163 Krennic's Imperial Shuttle Microfighter and #75162 Y-Wing Microfighter for $5 each, with #75161 TIE Striker Microfighter and #75160 U-Wing Microfighter for $7 each.
Maybe not great deals, but considering the last few years around here they're petty good.
I suppose I really need to build that train yard. (Add it to the list of future projects.)
I'm also exercising every bit of restraint to keep it to myself, as my lovely bride didn't notice the sudden crowding of freight engines on the Lego table. (I'll be ratted-out by my son soon enough!)
"You didn't ask" goes much further than "I made a bunch of crap up".
But if I forget to mention it and it makes it to the pile that still needs sorting or building, well perhaps it best to let the sleeping dog lie.
Voluntary disclosure is a completely different policy!
When I was almost done building the wagon, I didn't realize there was a replacement instruction sheet to fix two errors, so I had to rebuild part of the wagon. Then I realized I was missing the two plates, so I had to go digging in my extra parts bag for replacements. I finished building it, but now the back of the wagon won't pop off.
Note to self: don't build while tired.
I requested a couple more pictures from the seller, this is what I got:
After my first haul, I kept looking for more items and then there it was! 2 sellers, 5 minutes away from each other. Paid $148 got a total of $48 pounds.
The lots included
However my greatest finds of all time were the Lord of the Ring sets. Love them very much!
