    Didn't you just get that a few weeks ago ?
    Yes. You can never have too many dinos... seemed too good to pass up with the raptors and indominous.

    It looks like at least some of #31048 is there: green door and window, red roof bricks, brown bricks. Either way, looks like a great deal! Congrats!
    Yes I think I got about 95% of it

    ^ What is that thing the Governator is holding?  Is that communication device tethered to a fixed receptacle?

    Where's his buggy whip?

    Well... I've finished the inventory process. In the end, I was able to get the following Jurassic World sets on FB marketplace: #75915 #75916 #75917 #75918 #75919 #75920

    There were a few items missing (Pteranodon, Owen, green motorcycle, weapons/accessories, and a few other miscellaneous pieces), but otherwise, all the raptors, Indominus, minifigs, and main pieces/structures were present.

    Total cost was $85 with the initial FB marketplace purchase and then another $40 on Bricklink to complete the sets. I'm one of those people who want/need completed sets.

    Overall, I'm happy with this purchase. Bonus, my son has been having a great time playing with all these dinos.

    Not a major find, but today I managed to get a sealed #41078 Skyra's Misterious Sky Castle for 50€.
    I'm glad not only because it's an old Elves set and a nice addition to the collection and also because today "Santa" brought #41073 Naida's Epic Adventure Ship to one of my girls.

    Due to an error by someone putting clearance stickers on sets at a Target I visited, I got Elves set #41195 for $2.98. I kept putting it down, because it scanned for something like $31.84(?) but I decided to see if the checker would give me a better discount. I told her it was the wrong sticker, but she just said, "Well, it's on the box. Just don't try to return it." I had gone in looking for the Juniors Incredibles 2 sets I need and then gone looking at the other clearance, which had not been moved to a dedicated aisle yet.

    ^Oops! That should read $12.98, but still a great price. I only noticed my error because a draft of the post was saved at the bottom of the page on an earlier page of this topic. Weird.

    I got two #41631 for $9.98 each on clearance at Target. Decent deal considering it’s a 247 piece set.

    I got two #60205 at Target for $13.98 each. Is Lego changing their train track packaging or something? I was happy to load up but it seemed strange that they would be so cheap..
  • dbrougedbrouge QcMember Posts: 22
    ^ They changed track packs for 2018. #7895 and #7499 were changed for #60205 and #60238.
  • jnscoelhojnscoelho PortugalMember Posts: 275
    And another addition to the Elves collection, a used but complete #41174 The Starlight Inn for 15€.

    About 30 Brickheadz from a local store that went down to £6 then the majority bought at £4 which with a 3 for 2 deal they were doing works out at about £2.70 each...

    Came across what appeared to be 5 fresh boxes of series 18 minifigs at Target this morning... hit the boxes hard to find 4 policemen (all were in the first row on the left toward the back). I left one policeman for someone lucky.

    Also today I went to a neighbors indoor estate sale and picked this up for 50 cents. It is complete missing box. It has a small tear in the instructions and has one small cracked piece which only costs about 5 cents from BL.
    Nice find :-)

    Each set has bag #1 opened. Looks complete.

    We haven't heard from @FollowsClosely in seven hours. No doubt they went down there to check out the listing, only to find it had been a trap all along. Even as we speak, they're probably tied to a chair, being forced to watch The Adventures of Clutch Powers on Blu-ray...

    There are far worse movies than the adventures of clutch powers. I kinda liked it. At least it's not teen titans go to the movies... If I ever have to watch that again.... 
    Edit: I realize now I have just given out my weakness... time to be wary of free lego through facebook.

    Ugh, if there is one movie that has no benefit from HD...

    (I've not made it through.  I usually immediately fall asleep.  Maybe they can 'Special Edition' the crap out of it and improve the really terrible computer animation.)
  • FollowsCloselyFollowsClosely Member Posts: 948
    I got it. All bag #1s are missing for both sets. Missing #1 not a big deal for the EV, but no bags for the DS means no figs.

    Oh well, still a good find, but not great.
