It was either that figure or a couple of Battle packs :P
Got three city of atlantis for 41€ each at a local toyshop. Not that much of a steal but selling the poseidon minifig and other minifigs it is going to get cheaper..l
I am not too much into the theme but the big sets (portal and city of atlantis) have very nice pieces and minifigs. cant beat 1007 pieces at 0.039pP. they re not just round 1x1 either...;)
Considering I watched three others and the price ranges from £35 -£45 on ebay I am very happy :)
Think it is what you get when you list an item with the title: Ster Wars Lego!!!
* Mindstorm NXT 2.0 NIB $180. Not phenomenal, but the best I've seen it recently.
The following for $260 (all boxed w/instructions, some NIB)
* 7 HP sets including The Burrow, Hogwarts 4867, and Hagrid's Hut, 4866, 4737, 4865, 4736
* 5 Atlantis sets including the Portal of Atlantis, 7984, 7978, 7977, 7976
* 6 Pharoah's Quests sets including Scorpion Pyramid, 7326, 7325, 7307, 7306, 7305
* A Shedload of Hero Factory which is a theme we haven't got into and will probably try to resell (if I ever get around to it) - NIB 7164, 7165, 7167, 7168, 7169, 7170 + Opened, but boxed - 7160, 7158, 7162, and another 15 HF sets
Also found #66387-1 for $12 in a supermarket. Again taking the danish prices into consideration, it was cheap.
some missing pieces on each set
Apart from ONE technic pin, everything was there, the price? £4
Okay, it wasn't really free as such. Lego made a huge cockup with my order and ended up corrupting my account while trying to fix it. I asked if they could send me this set as compensation, and they did.
My other near-brag: my stepson is 17 so I've commanded him to harass his friends to dig up their Lego and give them to "my son" (*wink-wink*) before they turn college age and start fundraising drives for tuition. One kid says yeah, I'll look, tells me a few days later he found a big Rubbermaid thing more than half full. Jackpot! Right?! Well, his mom intervenes, says she's going to clean them first, but of course she's checking FeeBay and CL. My wife comes home, surprises me with the load she paid $40 for, it is a lot of Lego, the bin is very heavy... there are some enormous MegaBlechs too... okay, keep calm... I see straw and chicken feathers... they are sitting in 8 inches of water... they had been stored in the barn...!!!
Days of intense cleaning later, $40 was fine. Only about 5% non-Lego. Nails, staples, army men, rocks. The good news: found out that the water was not umpteen years old but only the night's rain. Whew! And I was able to get the rust (from the nails and junk floating against the Lego) off many of the old Harry Potter pieces.
Did just get a lot of 16 lbs for $115. All 80's stuff and it gave me the old Cargo set, the one with the airplane and about 50 figs, 8 of which being the really old first castle figs.
Need a thread for "missed finds" as I can go on into a lot of those. 110 (70 straights) pieces of 9 volt track for $100 shipped.......
memy sons (*wink-wink*)!
@Brickarmor, thanks for the awesome idea!
Also picked up another oldie: Mickey's Fire Engine #4164 with box and instructions, both in excellent shape for $15 shipped. Time for some Disney magic =)
After several hours of sorting I ended up with 30lbs of lego, a complete working 9v train with tracks and controller, and several other complete sets all from the late 90s early 00s. I'm looking forward to rebuilding 4559, and 6497. I think there are other sets from the time twisters series which was such a weird series, but they should go well with the new monsters themes. I don't have any trains right now so I'm quite happy to have a working base to MOC with.
I'm like a kid in a candy store sorting through all the parts and rebuilding the old sets.
Me starts to think people are people are off loading items for some capital. Hmmm, what could be up ;-)
You bloody well sort them. They're now worth a fraction of what they were - if that's a relevant factor for you.
Sorry to get off topic, just venting! She thought she was doing me a favor by creating more space in my Lego room!
