    Awesome find @pxchris! I'm on OfferUp multiple times a day scanning for lots. Even now when I am on a bit of a purchase break, I can't help but look what's out there. 

    There is currently a bulk lot that I'm heavily considering that is probably 75lbs worth of stuff and has numerous sets that I feel I could bring back to life. Ideally, I'd just resell a few of those back on OfferUp to cover my costs. It's probably not going to happen, but it's fun to dream. 

    Hopefully you find some great treasures in there!

    Bought a #10278 at Amazon for €120.

    After checkout it now reads "Condition: Used". That was not there when ordering! Well, we'll see if i finally get to brag... Or I'll simply return it.

    Yay! the only thing used were the seals. Those were cut. I'd really like to check if all the bags are there - i know we had a post with a link to somewhere you can find the amount of bags that should be there. Does anyone recall?

    ^ Sometimes reviews will show all of the bags, sometimes I’ll reference a speed build video.

    That helped a million. Mine has the same content as the unboxing vid - the inside box is still sealed, so guess that's fine too. 

    Thanks a lot - could've thought of that myself... ;)

    Just found these boxed #4709 and #6769 at a charity shop, for just £10 each...


    You're not in the midlands are you? Just recently returned my brother-in-law's boxed #6769 that we had stored along with some other lego...

    I'm not, but I'll happily pay £10 for that one too!

    My holy grail has arrived! It’s only missing a couple of common parts and one minifigure. Under the dust, it’s in like-new condition.

    Total cost after shipping and tax: $103
    Say what???  I'd be all over that for $103.  Where in the world did you snag it for that price?  That is one of 2 trains remaining I reallllly want, but refuse to pay the high prices.  Saw one recently on FB Marketplace in my area recently for $900 NIB.  Nope.  $103 I'd do in a heartbeat!  Congtrats man.  Great score!

    I stumbled across a Facebook marketplace ad, they were selling this train and a few random incomplete Ninjago vehicles for $80.  The seller is well reviewed and I could tell from another listing that it all seemed to be genuine Lego, so I placed the order and hoped for days it wasn't a knockoff, and they just weren't aware of its inflated value. I checked a lot of hidden studs as soon as it arrived , just to verify :-)

    I picked up The Child tonight for $25 from a local Facebook ad. My kids turned inside out when I showed them.

    I heard the going rate for these are $103.  I'll pay you 10% over...maybe even 15%.

    Did you have to hire that “cleaner” from Pulp Fiction? 😳

    ^ Are those the Belville stairs? BL says they only came in light yellow and light violet. Those look white.

    It’s the lighting, they’re light violet.

    These are all sealed. Getting this collection is like opening a time capsule.

    I notice BS does not have box images for #6342, #8810, or #8815. Yours are in great condition. You might want to consider submitting some nice box images to @Huw :)

    What kind of savage opens boxes like that?!  Even as a kid I was never THAT brutal with my boxes.  Honestly, I'm surprised that someone who tore open those boxes in that manner also saved any boxes at all.

    Maybe that’s why they weren’t allowed to open the other three :)

    ^ That's an awesome build! Enjoy!

    "Take & make" bulk lot didnt pay off set-wise but I grabbed a mish-mash of bricks for $10. I got all the Technic 😁👍🏻, a yellow arch for #6277 's dock, blue mudguards to make #8662, a bunch of #7946 parts (the castle I lost out on TWICE recently- see "the one that got away" subtopic), a few replacement parts for #76104, & those white plate wedges must come in handy somewhere.
