    Many of the minifigures are worth more than $10.00 each! (Assuming that is what the 10.00 means).

    The cave troll alone is going for $23 on BL.

    Lookup Merry and Pippin!

    My deal of the day...  £2 for a dragon (deagon04 on bl). Missing just a couple of black horns, a hinge and the fire. Mind you, the parts were all separate in the bottom of a box full of large megabloks parts that I had to sort through.

    Yes my pusher always buys at a discount & kinda sorta passes the savings on to me 👍

    So I'm halfway thru building Orc Forge & seeing hints of #9470 Shelob Attacks & #9472 Attack on Weathertop (I didnt look at the minifigs closely enough to determine what sets were present)
  • CCCCCC UKMember Posts: 19,998
    Yes, you have Sam and Gollum, plus Merry, from those sets. There is the Rohan soldier too, from the Uruk-hai army set.

    An amazing find for that price.

    Aftermarket prices can usually get high enough where I will consider selling anything but not LotR sets. My precious!

    We'll see what my pusher charges me- he's already aware of the high minifig prices. 😳😫.

    For a while I thought you got them for the 10/00 written on the box.

    That’s what I thought! It’s not braggable until you know what it cost you :)

    It is someone who sells drugs... Or in this case illegal lego.  lol

    I think the insinuation is that the 'pusher' is feeding their Lego 'addiction' rather than implying anything illegal... I hope.

    I feel like there's a bit of an enabler factor too.

    Did you get a good price for the LOTR / Hobbit stuff?
  • gelkstergelkster MN, USAMember Posts: 734
    Price TBD; that's how we usually work it.

    Based on the going rate of the LOTR sets/figs, however, I may have to sign the house over to him & sell my firstborn son.

    As parts & pieces dwindle & sets come together, finding scant traces of #9471 Uruk-hai Army in there as well!!

    Nice start to my Friday, I hit this yard sale as soon as they opened after seeing Lego in their ad. $48 for all six boxes.

    So far I see chunks of the Dreamliner, Mindstorms NXT, some decent Technic sets, and some early-00s City sets. It will be fun to sort through and figure out what’s missing - one box sold moments before I got there.

    The Rohan soldier and Eomer were in the original picture, so that is not surprising.

    ^^ follow up from the yard sale haul… I asked the seller if she had any of the instructions, and she said her son (who has since moved out, hence the sale) would build the sets and display them, and toss the instructions. I died a little inside.

    You died a little inside?  Imagine when the son finds out what mom did with his Lego!

    Update on today’s yard sale goodies: this little gem will pay for the entire haul. It still works smooth as butter.

    @Westerbricks this is #8284 correct?  Complete?
  • dehnehsudehnehsu Bay Area, Calif.Member Posts: 198
    I saw a box in front of my neighbors house Saturday morning and thought it may be a freebie or donation. It was small so I didn't bother to look. It was still there later in the evening so I checked it out and it had a sign "Free Lego(s)" Surprised no one grabbed it!

    The contents were a 70608 Ninjago Master Falls still sealed, Creator 31092 missing parts, 70601 Sky Shark also missing parts, and a partial unknown Ninjago set I couldn't figure out. I need help identifying the mystery set. The blue stickered tile and gold swords are clues. A Trans-Neon green spider with clip turned up only non matching sets.

    Thanks! Looks like some random parts were mixed in as well. Like the Neon spider. Can't complain for Free.

    I managed to find almost the entire SW wave from summer 2021 (Arquintes Cruiser, Imperial Armored Maraude, Boba Fett Ship, Ashoka vs Maul) in a Military store on Fort Buchanan Puerto Rico (US), I have the pictures in my thread as well some wonderful news: THE 2017 UCS MILLENNIUM FALCON ARRAIVED SAFETLY!!!!!!!! I have been working to save $$$ for that set since 2017 when I worked as  part of hurricane Maria recovery operations as well the early 2020 earthquake support mission, both in Puerto Rico (US), but as it happened things took various turns that made me buy the set this year:
    UCS Millennium Falcon unboxing (75192) - YouTube

    Edit: did I say those SW sets were in sale?

    Thanks, I will build it with a bottle of wine and some cheddar cheese, my dad aided me by donating $100 when I told him that the ship was in stock early this year, he other SW sets I bought them during Sunday, I have passed on buying the ship a couple of times now one being last year when I gave my father money that was to buy LEGO sets so that he could buy food and other essentials. If you want to talk about those two deployments I mentioned you can PM me.

    I found this Bionicle 8811 Metro Nui Toa Lhikan & Kikanalo from 2004 in the middle of a pile of children's board games in my "Hony Hole" Charity shop for the princely sum of £1.50.
    Now the brag is even though the box is a bit squished and has a few dents & shelf wear it is still sealed & on doing research on eBay & Bricklink there are no "new & sealed" available on both sites.
    Prices for used & complete are a bit all over the shop, the last 2 new that sold on Bricklink were Aug 2021 was 1 for £80.00 & July 2021 was 1 for £129.13.
    Just to repeat, I paid £1.50

    AntiQues MN, an antiques mall in Burnsville, Minnesota: several LEGO dealers. One was there, asked me if I was looking for anything in particular. I said, "Nothing specific, just looking." He wrote me a 20% off coupon, good today only! I ended up with (together in a clear clamshell) #30350 Volcano Jackhammer minus the rock/lava/crystal and Crusty and his crab vehicle from #70614 Lightning Jet for $9.99 (I rewatched the first half of The LEGO Ninjago Movie last night!) and #2509 Earth Dragon Defense for $44.99. Dragon was missing Cole DX, his katana and Wyplash's sword and orange flame and two other small bits... but included over 100 small pieces apparently from #2506 Skull Truck- the silver samurai helmet being the best. The box was roughly torn open, and bags 1 & 3 opened. Wyplash was assembled without his shoulder armor, and the boulder had the gems inside, but everything else seems never to have been built. This set waited a decade for me to give it a home! I regularly thing "I really don't need any more LEGO dragons." Obviously, I'm wrong. :)

    p.s. the red banner is the only piece I can't account for. Just a bonus bonus, I guess.

    Not bad for $51-ish after sales tax!

    @560Heliport, was that Lance by any chance? (Although, last I looked, he wasn’t selling much Lego anymore.)

    BTW, if you haven’t already seen it on their email list, they have a store wide 20% off sale Nov 10-17.
  • 560Heliport560Heliport Twin Cities, MN, USAMember Posts: 2,790
    @Astrobricks it wasn't Lance (who I have met), it was Carlos. He's the one with many dozens of Ziploc bags of random parts, and some more or less complete sets. I'm not on their email list, so wasn't aware- thank you! Sounds like a good plan for Veteran's Day.
