  1. My “I am hoarding all of these Lego sets for my future grandson” excuse finally came true!

  4. Most likely my last post on this thread. I sold my last 21104 for $800 FBM back in November 2021. This was by far the best investment I ever made. I would go as far as putting 21104 as the PERFECT set for investment. Everything about & around this set just worked beautifully to support it's aftermarket value. This was also 1 of a few sets that I endorsed for investment back in the day (the other ones cratered in value, which stopped me from blabbering my mouth ) Obviously I still have a lot to learn since I only sold 1 copy for $800. This was supposed to be my personal copy and/or an experiment to see how long it would take to 20x (my avg cost was $38). Over the years, the majority of my stash were sold at $400 price range. So 7 years to reach 20x, not bad Here is to the best set I ever own. I highly doubt there will be another one as good as 21104

  5. I've gotten more inquiries from friends about this line than any other Lego anything ever. A friend got a six pack and asked me yesterday what the best route to getting the other six was. I told her about smooshing... Then just told her I'd grab the six she was missing next time I found them in store. Luckily I remembered that when I found myself in a Walmart last night. Her response when I told her I got them:

  11. I've just finished building it, and here's a pic of it next to some of the other smaller UCS sets. I was pleasantly surprised to find that, upon weighing the Landspeeder, it is actually the heaviest of these four models. I had been worried that it would succumb to shrinkflation, but apparently not.

  12. In the middle of a major Hi-Fi upgrade so @fuzzy_brickswon’t be able to get on me about my old RadioShack receiver anymore. Started with the turntable and cartridge, also got that $400 record weight and some way overpriced cables (face palm emoji). Have 2 other major components on order from USA based companies that are waiting on overseas parts.

  15. I gave my dad (age 70) the mustang a few years ago for fathers day. He was an engineer in the Detroit auto industry for 40 years so I though he could handle it. Said he really enjoyed it but had to grind down a few pieces to make them fit 🙄 Will send him a shirt this year.

  19. Got a lucky find on OfferUp today. No instructions and missing the stormtrooper and Bespin Guard, but it has the $150 Boba Fett figure with it and Han. Gonna have to disassemble and clean it, but well worth the price. Sent from my SM-G996U using Tapatalk

  20. Shockers are: - Elvis Presley Art (only 9 months?) - Squirrel Battle Pack (aka Picnic in the Park) (only 12 months?) - Iron Man and Miles Morales Bricksketches (only 8 months?) - 3 Farm sets that haven't even been released yet are already set to retire at the end of the year? Same for the Friends Surf School. - Technic F150 Raptor (only 14 months?) I think this list needs to be taken with a significant amount of NaCl.

  21. Ok, had a little time this evening. Most manufacturers have some sort of markings on the box to help identify the product. Muppets appears to as well. I weighed the 6 boxes that I have of the 6 packs 4 weighed 120-121 grams 2 weighed 116-117 grams Coincidently the bottom of the boxes have a number on them. The 120-121 gram boxes have number 127759-204 The 116-117 gram boxes have number 127759-203 I have no intention of opening these but curious if others can chime in on what boxes they have and what characters came with which codes.

  22. We were very surprised that the Muppets boxes came to us without a bottom on the box. We put tape on the bottom of the single boxes before we shipped them out, so they wouldn’t fall out of the boxes (even though they are securely fastened in). We did not want to delay getting the boxes out to everyone, so the tape was our best quick option. We sent them in the factory sealed "as is" condition, but it is not what they have done in the past. As stated, it was certainly a shift coming from the factory from what it has been in the past!

  23. I'll let you know when I open them. I haven't opened like my last 8 sets I've received. I have a bad habit of just throwing them in a box. lol

  29. OfferUp yesterday afternoon - $350 MILF, about 10 minutes away from where I happened to be. Knowing full well what’s really up, decided to have a little fun, but not waste my time either. Reached out and told him I was interested and nearby. Immediately met with “I’m in (city two hours away)” “Weird,” I say, “says you’re right here.” “Oh, that’s an OfferUp glitch.” Uh huh. Told the guy peace out. He pushed hard with a couple messages that he could ship it FedEx and “I’ll even take photos of me packing it!” Lol The listing and messages are gone this morning. I’m hoping it got axed. I had to duck out at that point and didn’t get to report it. Hopefully no one got screwed (except for him).

  31. There is a way you can tell and it's been 100% accurate for us thus far.... Box A weighs 108.8 grams and contains figures 1,2,3,6,7,9 (based on insert) Box B weighs 110.0 grams and contains figures 4,5,8,10,11,12

  32. Best Buy, in their eBay store, has a ton of sets for sell. All retail but many you can no longer find or are retired. I picked up a couple Stranger Things Upside Downs and a couple Sith Art sets. https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_dmd=2&_dkr=1&iconV2Request=true&_ssn=best_buy&store_name=officialbestbuy&_oac=1&_nkw=lego&fbclid=IwAR05j0MxpZ2Ml2OXZwWhtjdybVo6FiMMQGl8K41LZmP6UYyhCpP-GzuL19Q

  39. Thank you everyone for your generosity once again. Remember, due to New Jersey sweepstakes regulations that are now being enforced, the sweepstakes drawing must be 3 days after final tickets are sold. Rally Up will draw winning tickets on Thursday May 5, 2022 at 9:00 PM Eastern time. See you then! Ed Mack
