So after inventorying, more than 35% of the pieces are missing, some substituted with completely different colors (white instead of dark bley for example). Also missing were half the minifigs and the horse.
I thought I was going to be able to post about a great find, but instead it turned out to be a great disappointment. I should have trusted my gut... which told me that anything left a day into the rummage sale was probably left for a reason. I suspect that other collectors passed after doing a quick count of the minifigs visible in the ziplock bags in which the set was stored (inside the box, no less! Who keeps the box but loses 1/3 of the pieces??).
Oh and I got these guys in the mail the other day:
I saw these on the website and they appear to be a promotional item from last month with a current price tag of $9.99. They first tried to locate them on the site and couldn't find them using a search. Then they asked if I was on lego's website, I told them yes and that I could send a link or spell it out. She took a minute then said she found them. For reference the item number is 4649858 "ARF Shadow Trooper"
I bought it and took it home. It felt heavy so i threw it on the scales.. 42lbs!!!! It also came with about 25 manuals as well..
So far, i have been able to piece together and build:
8007 - C3PO technic
8458 - Silver Champion (I just finished this set and it is HUGE!!!)
there is a ton of other sets, about 100 minifigs, about 80 or so track pieces and some really cool base plates.
Part of the enjoyment of lego for me is buying these large bulk lots.. Finding needles in the haystacks!!!!
Just arrived, the set is like new, one end of the box seals were cut, but the 4 boxes inside were still Lego sealed, so really it is a brand new set for almost 20% off.
Not the best deal in the world, but I'm happy with it. :)
Where on the website do I find Amazon's Warehouse Deals? Just curious to see what I'm missing out on here.
Just picked up 7641 - City Corner - for $82 in like new condition. That set probably will come with some edge rubbing and minor wear, but still be factory sealed.
$82 delivered for that set, today, is not a bad price. :)
But $82 today is a fair price, given the market... Amazing, isn't it?
I sold both of those that I bought, and now rather wish I had the set, so... now I do. :)
Anyone want to bet this is going out this summer along with Clone Turbo Tank?
You're not the first to make such a post but it always makes me scratch my head :P
I also found some Series 4 Minifigures recently and could bring my collection closer to completion: Mad Scientist (in Oxford), Musketeer and female Surfer (in India!). Felt sooo lucky... then last Sunday I found that The Entertainer in Westfields Shepherd's Bush still has Series 4 by the truckloads.
Got loads of Harry Potter stuff plus star wars. Will sort out after my boy goes to bed.
Here's a pic
7258 Wookie attack
4482 ATTE walker
HP stuff from a castel set not sure which one will have to count the turrets and see which one matches.
Debating weather i should go car booting in the morning, dam rain.
