@snowhitie - It's Nikolaustag (Saint Nicholas' Day) here today too. And just look what he brought me (I shall be thanking my mother-in-law later).
Now, if you'll excuse me...
Left them at the lift lobby area outside and all gone by the next day, the cleaner must have cleared them.
This was the 4th or 5th time that I've cleared the empty boxes. More to come when I find space and open more sets in the future. :)
So now I have a free #75165 battlepack without having purchased anything. Bizarre. And I guess I'll be able to re-order BB-8 cheaper at some point too.
Either way, I get to keep the freebie. This way, it just means that, in a roundabout way, I haven't had to make a purchase to get the gift.
But I will order another when it appears on discount again.
I know what you mean about the bashed boxes becoming more common. This is the 2nd time in a month it's happened and I think it's only happened to be 4 or 5 times in total over the years.
This order was well packed, but looking at the damage, it was definitely done before the box was shipped. There's no way it happened during transit. So they either packed a damaged set, knowing it was damaged, or they damaged it while packing the order.
I suspect it was during packing. The damage looks like the sort of thing that would happen when someone was scrunching up the brown paper they use a padding, leaning on top of the box as the squished it all in.
Is there an easy way to find sellers on BL who offer bulk purchase discounts on certain parts? In my most recent purchase, one of the sellers offered some pretty significant discounts when buying in multiples of 100's or 1000's. I have a few parts that would be nice to have some rather large quantities of, but rarely hit my local PaB wall. The difference between $.02 per part and 100 parts for $.0075 adds up rather quickly!
Admittedly, my BL experience is rather limited, so this might be an easy filter I'm missing?
I'm Happy to find some interesting building techniques were involved.
I made do with the technic parts I had for the small ferris wheel but I'm not really happy with it at all.

In case anyone is wondering, it's all in an old fish tank put on its side.
Amazon just droped it Price on #71239 Lego Dimensions: Fun Pack Lloyd Gold Ninja
down to £6.49 i have waited a long time for this. par for the two polybags (who dont count.) this is the last Dimensions set i need. and i been waiting a long time for this price drop.
I recycled boxes and instructions from my KFOL collection during my dark age. It's hard to store them nicely. Now, I keep instructions but rarely save boxes.
Of all the Argos outlets however, my local had the final one and guess what, somehow it was found to be in mint condition when collected today.
Then I awoke this morning to my daughter shouting that Biscuit (her Elf on the shelf) had been mucking around in my room!
If it's the large one in the market square, it's just the tree from #10249 Winter Toy Shop.
And thanks @Maniac for providing the link to Miro78's coffee stand too.
Other people buy multiples of sets as part packs.
@Paperballpark must have ended up with at least 11 instructions for #10253 Big Ben when building his Palace of Westminster.
Happens to me if I like multiple models in a Creator 3-in-1 set... I'll get two or three copies so I can display them all at once. I usually keep them so I have a complete set of instructions for each set I have in case I ever sell them, but they definitely bulk my stored instructions binders up enough that when my collection gets bigger I will probably just get rid of them...
My Mum was in her mobility scooter and the staff were incredible and couldn't do enough for her.
And luckily for her (and me!) they actually had some #10249 Winter Toy Shop sets in stock \o/
And the sheer amount of gifts on offer was fabulous! I got my first crappy #5004939 xmas tree, and several brilliant ones left over from recent offers. Brilliant!
And my favourite purchase was the #853663 xmas magnet. It's my first magnet and I think it looks class attached to my custom LEGO key holder :)
Also, I accidentally bought 4 Lesters instead of 3 and they didn't complain at all.
