The 500K Club

Just curious to who has reached the minimum of "500K piceces own" club according to the pieces counted of the sets you own.

If I count the sets I own plus individual pieces I've bought, I reach the 500k mark.....however, just wondering who has reached this mark based on the sets listed only.

    I'm at 574,303 pieces, with about ~200 sets left to inventory.

    My actual count is 697,163 for my personal collection, but with my wife's collection added (we're in the process of combining), we're around 1 million.

    According to counts in BrickSet, my personal collection is at 520,765.

    ^ What does combining your collections entail?

    A lot of arguing about which pieces get sorted where :)

    Actually, the big problem is counting. For whatever reason, I kept a really accurate tally of sets and individual PIECES I received ever since about 1998. So I had an accurate piece count up through present day, probably give or take 1% or so. But she didn't really care-- she acquired pieces and gave away pieces without thinking much about it, so we have no idea how many she has.

    So, combining blindly means I lose my highly accurate piece count! Not that it's a big deal or anything-- but I figure if I knew for this long, it'd be a shame to lose that information. As a result, I'm seeing if I can stand the utter pain of having to count EVERY element in her collection as it gets added to mine. If it gets to be too much, I'll just have to say screw it, and forever after have an accuracy of +/- 100,000 pieces or so.

    Anyway, mostly it involves making sure that we BOTH know how things are sorted and stored. We have vastly different organizational preferences, so apart from basic bricks, plates, and tiles, it gets interesting.

    You have truely spent a fortune on LEGOs if you have that many... Brickset says I've only got 47,379 from their database of sets and piece counts. I know I have more as I've picked up a random bucket or bricks and have constantly ordered and gotten from Pick-A-Brick or e-bay.
