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!
