While looking for current Lego offers on Amazon, I was surprised to see loads of offers such as:
- 10x Lego inverted slope 2x2 dark red
- 8x Lego plate 4x6 new dark grey
- 40x Lego Technic pin long with stop black
- 40x Lego plate 1x2 light gray
- 25x Lego brick 2x2 new brown
and so on.
It seems quite some of those parts come in ... peculiar colours, such as lime green or lots of browns, but I may be mistaken and this might change day by day.
What are those offers?
- Is that vendors who buy loads of original Lego sets, put the individual parts into larger bags of 5 to 50 pieces, and then sell them and somehow have a little revenue margin?
- Is that vendors that somehow get large quantities of the same pieces from Lego (e.g. through channels that allow toy stores to build up some custom scenery around the actual sets in showcases if there is such a thing) and then resell packs of such pieces?
- Or are those offers not for Lego pieces at all, but for some rip-off that fakes the brand logo on the studs?
