I have a specific list of bricks for building a LEGO set that I found online, with approximately 300 pieces and around 70 different blocks.

I have seen that one of the best ways for buying LEGOs seems to be Bricklink web page. However, there are hundreds if not thousands of sellers, and the webpage does not seem to be designed to add a list and search for sellers or something like that.

Has anyone been in my situation? How would you buy an specific set of bricks without going comparing one by one all the shops to see wich one has the mos amount of bricks etc?

If you have curiosity, I want to build the mini LHC

Please see my response to this post. Using the Wanted List feature you can upload your own list of bricks and then see which vendors have these items - you would still need to fill a shopping cart at each vendor to see their price, but that is not so difficult by using the "add Minimum quantity" link at the top of the individual shop page.

  • Hum, I have been triying. Let me try to upload that XML file with IDs, its a very counterintuitive web page Commented Feb 26, 2015 at 16:35
  • I agree - it takes some getting used to. What I do is I generate my list in a spreadsheet (Excel, OpenOffice) and have a formula that generates the XML tags for each brick. I then paste the XML file into the textbox on the Wanted List page, and from there on it is fairly easy sailing.

  • Well I am having a problem while creating the XML file. It doesn't find any of the IDs in the catalogue. However, if a manually pick any of them and go to the search bar and search in the catalogue there is never a problem. Is there something I need to take into account while creating the XML? I knwo that IDs like 306223 are 4dig piece 2dig colour, so I can break down that ID into ID and colour for the XML but I have no idea of what to do with 6037390. Commented Feb 26, 2015 at 16:54

  • 6037390 is 3007 in black, according to Bricklink: bricklink.com/catalogItem.asp?P=3007&ccName=6037390
