    At Half Price Books in Roseville, MN they have some vintage LEGO: a few sets with instructions, occasionally with boxes, and various sizes of loose parts: some sorted by color, some just random. Saturday I found a bag of random parts for $7.99... with a 3778 Cypress Tree! It's mine now. It's only slightly chewed, probably by a cat.

    Hmm been awhile since i visited there. We'd often have a Friday dinner at the Shoreview Red Robin, then pop into HPB Roseville to see what's new.

    ^ It is the brag thread, so it’s ok to say how much you paid :)

    Depends on how much he usually spends on takeout.

    My wife found most of a 2012 Quinjet in like-new condition at a garage sale this morning for $3. No figures but a nice pile of parts for that little.
    If I already didn't have one that's been unbuilt since 2012, I'd be making an offer...

    ^best part is they literally live across the street from the town library which collects donations for their lego club (or did in the past at least)

    It was probably deliberately thrown in the trash, as opposed to being upcycled. Like, the kid did something awful and this was their punishment.

    That’s exactly what I was thinking. 😳

    I can just imagine the mother/father/kid sneaking out later to bring it back in and just being like 'oh crap....'
    First thing I thought was "They would surely get out all the bags and put the empty box in the trash, rather than risk it all going missing" but that might be optimistic...

    Not exactly a great find, but bought a small used set from on Ebay and got this lot complete in the same box for some reason, plus another 30 or so spare pieces.

     
    It looks to me like your Lone Ranger has gone rogue and is trying to sleigh-jack Santa Clause...

    Found #2129 Dragster and a bunch of miscellaneous parts for $2.99 at Savers. The elastic for the dragster seems to have lost its stretch, barely moves the car, but still a cute little build.

    Picked up #21035 Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum brand spankin' new for $50 the other day. A local seller had a couple sealed copies he got discounted to flip. I've recently developed an Architecture interest, especially in NY buildings, so this was a good find for me.

    Nice set!  But I enjoyed all the FLW sets.

    Not sure how great it is but I found about 2/3 of the statue of liberty (#3450) for $70

    @Jackad7 - That's pretty great. Sand green costs a pretty penny by itself. Any of the macaroni pieces? Those are the true expense of that set.

    Funny how it was Amazon’s Choice for “Lego fire brigade”. I’d be suspicious of a seller who lifted a pic off amazon instead of taking one themselves.

    My question is how that doofus managed to pay $110 over rrp
    Sometimes sellers embellish the price they paid for an item to make their listing seem like more of a deal. I guess it ocassionally works on the uninformed consumer.

    @Astrobricks- I only just now noticed that lol!
    I'm assuming you didnt snag it?

    @Baby_Yoda- that's it exactly. I see sellers using Amazon as a price guide A LOT & I wanna message them & yell at them 😂

    PS> I apologize for the creepy doll pic

    No, I already have one, and Mankato is a bit far to go even for that deal :)

    An initial $15 FB Mktplace buy for 9 Simpsons figs became a trade for:

    The 9 figs + Admiral Ackbar
    Parts for 7734 Cargo Plane
    The Hobbit: Attack on Lake Town
    16 curved train track pieces

    I think it’s pretty funny just how well Admiral Ackbar fits in with the Simpsons characters
