  1. My son has spent about 10 days putting this together during the weekends and after school. And, I've got to say its an impressive looking set.

  3. SO to answer the question - Yes you can sell $10,000 in Lego from a garage in a weekend 🙂 The final total is $10,438 in sales for a profit of $4496.91 on 190 Lego sets sold. I will post a list of sets and prices at some point but I wanted to update the thread. Yes- I am shocked- I have gotten close to 5,000 before and been happy. I am in utter shock - I am going to have dinner.

  6. Just got this info from a reliable seller, a truthful source, he simply forwarded an official statement of TLG's ambassador network regarding another market-crashing re-release of one the most successful sets of all time. At this point, I'm really worried this might be the last shot to finish this forum & the whole community off. This might be it! The statement is as following: "Due to high demand & popularity, significance in the LEGO world & as a service to our fans we are proud to anounce we'll be re-launching set number 75119 - "Jyn Erso" from the Star Wars line. The set w

  9. I bought a UCS AT-ST and a few other sets from a lady four years ago. Her sons had more Lego (no mention of what sets) at the time but didn’t want to sell them yet. I told her to keep my number handy when her sons decide they’re ready to sell. Out of nowhere, she reached out to me this weekend asking if the phone number still belongs to me, and that her sons are ready to sell more Lego. She sent me four pictures. The first two were meh, but the last two were… I didn’t get them for a song as her sons checked eBay for market value. I don’t know how they came up to th

  10. LOL. Is it really surprising that things aren't going to go as expected in what has otherwise been an entirely predictable year in which there have been no surprises or unexpected turns of events for anyone anywhere in the world???

  11. I want to be clear before I make my comment to let people know I am treading lightly before I say my peace. I've observed this season that there are folks on here that need extra reassurance that a set is retiring before they purchase it. It's as if their entire business will go under if the set they bought isn't retiring. I get it, I really do. You want to make sure that the sets you are putting on the shelf are gone as quick as possible. This is a bigger priority for the newer resellers than the veterans. My question is, if you're so unsure about a specific set, why not just wait

  12. I have somewhat of a review after playing with this (the Starter pack) with my 7-year-old daughter. First of all, straight from her, I asked what she likes about the set, or this 'system'. She said she likes how you can make new challenging levels, you can put the different pieces in whatever places you like, and you get to connect it to your phone or iPad. Kind of generic feedback, but she's also 7. She's one that likes to customize everything in her life so I'm not surprised she likes the power in her hands of making her own levels. She also liked using the iPad for the instructions

  15. How right you are. Although my second clip is not talking about the MF but the original Taj Mahal I bought used for $1,000 a few years earlier. I still have never owned a 10179. It would be fun to get back into the videos again, but I have had to take time off. On an exciting note, I have amassed $60k in cash from Lego sales this year to build myself a new commercial kitchen.

  17. Last week I had my first major score on Facebook Marketplace. I got all this stuff for $50. Very little in the way of instruction booklets for the Lego, (sadly no Saturn V manual) But the Villa Savoy was a happy surprise when I found it under the rocket when I got home as I'm a big Le Corbusier fan.

  18. Sold 10182 and 10185 for $1200 cash. Decided to keep 10190 to complete the collection, even though I don't actually consider it a modular. Now I've managed to snag every modular for under RRP over the past 3 years when I started collecting them.

  20. I have signs that say no negotiation and I stick with that . When new people comes up I explain pricing to them so I take the mystery of it out. I tell them I sell this for X on ebay and have sold two in the last two months (truth) I indicate that I reduce my garage sale priced to reflect a cost savings form mot paying ebay, pal Pal and shipping fees. I also tell them it is not a perfect science but in general I try. I don't encourage them to check ebay but in my Craigslist as I see them checking - GO ahead and check im not afraid of them checking - they are usually presently surprised and

  21. At Grand Teton National Park, I hiked 17 miles round trip through Cascade Canyon to Lake Solitude. It's at 9035 feet elevation and the water is melted glaciers. So I jumped in and swam to the island. In the picture, my wet footprints are on the rocks - nobody nearby to take a photo of me.

  22. Pieced these together from a $40 lot. Surprisingly, there were not many missing pieces. As far as I can tell, there is still one 3368 can be built from the lot and a couple of small Star Wars sets. A couple of castle figs were also found including the king and two armored horses.

  31. SO - Day 1 of the garage sale has ended. I sold 92 sets and generated 4663 dollars in revenue and generated 1895.83 in profit. To put this in perspective last year in the may garage sale my three day total was 113 sets sold for 4501 in revenue and 1495.48 in profit I am in utter shock and exhausted. I will now be restocking tonight - good problems to have!!!! (Can I do a $10K weekend????)

  32. Not the point - The point is running a toy store for a couple of days. Meeting people, talking Lego . Seeing a kid get a new set and smile. having a customer talk to me about Lego and learning what investing is like - I do this for the fun of it and to make a few dollars

  33. Unpacking a recent LEGO lot of 13 lbs. for $110. So far it contains most (if not all) of a 10195 AT-OT and Dropship. Looks like all stickers are present, hoses, cockpit, rubber bands, etc. Also contains a a good portion of a UCS Vader Tie 10175, including UCS sticker, cockpit front and back. Most of a 6211 Star Destroyer, 7679 Republic Tank, 6206 Tie Interceptor, and 7146 Tie Fighter. I still have another 10 lb lot to go through which I know contains more of the dropship and the UCS Vader Tie. I also just bought another 12 lb lot from same seller tonight for under $100.

  37. Made a 4ft square table out of wood and put it in my basement. Finished the Astronomy Tower and added it to the Great Hall, Whomping Willow and Clock Tower Sets. Ive set up a small track for the Hogwarts Express that loops around the 4 larger sets that have been recently released for the line. My 5 and 3 year old girls love it even if they haven't seen any of the movies and we have yet to read them the books. I figure it will be a seasonal table we can swap out a display. After Halloween, i'll be turning it into my Winter Village setup. Later today Ill try and get a picture of what we hav

  39. just speaking to a friend of mine who works at lego HQ, he said the reason they are retiring the hidden side theme, is they are going to re-release the entire theme under a new theme called 'Lego Hidden Side'. all the same sets just with different numbers they expect sales to increase substantially within this new theme.

  41. That is awesome. Sucks some people think something cool has to be done by ill gotten methods but that is their their problem. Best moment of the day was when a little boy was so excited he just ran up and gave the Lego guy a hug. His mom promised him a Lego set after his hair cut and he was so beside himself and the smile was huge. One of the reasons that I love doing the garage sale. Seeing actual kids get the set and the joy it brings them. I just don't see that on eBay. I assured her the hug was cool, his mom was shocked when he did it but hey unbridled happiness is an awesome thin

  42. European Market is very different from the North American Market, the majority of posters here are from USA,so take alot of what is said here which a pinch of salt I.e. super heroes and marvel dont appreciate as much in EU, whereas technic will perform very well in EU, not as much in US. Also don't feel bad for not owning a warehouse / fork truck. As you'll find alot of people here saying they bought 100 of this set and 300 of that, but that isn't the norm, they are the exception. Sure there are some big players here, but the average Joe is just buying an extra set to stash away and sell

  48. Friendly reminder:If you ARE ordering Don't forget to add your Mini VW code(if your holding one) to your order. I've forgotten before on other promo codes. So then have to order something else or listen to the dreamy LEGO C.S. hold music for an HOUR:)
