So last week, I picked up another large LEGO lot (LLL) on a local swap site. The ad said something about a Rubbermaid tub of LEGO that weighed 12.2 pounds for $30.  I usually buy much larger lots (40+ pounds), but for $30, but the price was right.  A lot of ads will tell you LEGO sells for $15/lb, so their LEGO is a steal at $10/lb.  My rule of thumb is $5/lb for newer stuff with newer colors.  If I can’t tell what it is, how old it is, or much else about it, I buy at $3/lb.  Without haggling, the price was perfect, so I asked for pictures.

This is what I got back, and a note saying they found a lightsaber, so I knew there was at least some Star Wars included, and I could see a Twin-Pod Cloud Car.  I am considering a Hoth MOC, so all the white was appealing, too.  I told them I was interested, and made plans to pick them up the next day.

After work, I punched the address into my GPS, and when I got there, the addresses weren’t even close to what my GPS said.  I was looking for something in the 1000’s, and I was in the 4000’s.  It was a small sub, so I drove around a bit, my GPS constantly telling me I was at my destination.  I decided to give up, and called the seller to tell them I was bailing.  As I was getting ready leave, I noticed a street I had missed, and gave it a try.  Bingo!

I made my purchase and as soon as I got back into my truck, I poked around a bit and found some chunks of what I thought were various models.  I thought to myself, “No way.  It can’t be.”  A quick google search confirmed it.

Based on these pictures, can you guess what I discovered in this LEGO score???

After I complete the rebuild, I’ll post pictures of it!
