Is it worth it to buy the missing figures - will we make back the money we spend or would it be more cost effective to sell it with the two figures missing ? This boils down to the following: SALE PRICE OF COMPLETE SET > SALE PRICE OF INCOMPLETE SET + BUY PRICE OF MISSING PIECES If that is true, you stand to profit from completing the set, barring any ...

I cannot seem to find the official press release for Berlin flagship store re-opening in 2017, however various sources1, 2 state at that time it had the Europe’s largest ”Pick & Build“ wall. Latest news I could find related to this particular shop wall is couple of months old (in German). There's a picture representing all parts available for PAB with ...

If you see steep discounts on many LEGO sets, it's a scam. LEGO and their retail partners rarely discounts their products to 50% or more, and when they do it's rarely on current products. A site offering such steep discounts on a large variety of current products simply isn't credible. You might find substantial discounts on knockoff brand sets, but if ...

Short answer: Yes. Long answer: Technically linear actuators are not part of PF/PU system, so they are treated as generic part. S@H don't sell individual parts apart from PF/PU elements. Pick-a-Brick (PAB) has very limited part selection and linear actuators are never available there as well. I also haven't seen LEGO Education selling any actuators, only ...

Generally, I think it doesn't add much value. But it depends. Some sets, like US version of 8284, have extra parts crucial for alternative model (aka B-model). So unless you include them, you are selling incomplete set. The inclusion of all parts to build all models is part of "complete" condition description on Bricklink. Extra parts excluded ...

I ordered a couple Star Wars sets from one of these facebook ads, and I was eventually delivered the sets. I was very suspicious at first, but the same ad was still showing up after a couple months, so I decided to risk it. Of course, they were the Lepin sets, and not the original Lego sets (although for the price that's what I was expecting. Another ...

Such place indeed exist and it is called Bricklink, a website dedicated to trading LEGO items. It has extensive history and great catalog of LEGO items found on the internet. Prices and quality are, usually, far better than you would find on eBay. And as an extra bonus, there are sellers from all over the world, so you are not limited to you own region. As ...

I'd say this is something to look out for when dealing with a part that BrinkLink itself notes is very similar to other part numbers. Reading the detailed notes about buying sets is more important than parts generally. I'd read a bit more closely about the stated condition of used parts than new parts. I've made a few dozen orders on BrickLink over the ...

Turns out we have two of these...

If the sets are indeed complete with all parts, minifigs, instructions and even boxes then I'd recommend Bricklink, as the collector community there would be more appreciative of these features. Whereas on Ebay and Craigslist you'd find more people who just want a playset and couldn't even tell if a set was complete or not. For higher value sets (like yours)...

Yes you may. These scam sites pop up daily, especially around the holidays.

LEGO’s Pick-a-Brick service has only a limited amount of the total range of pieces ever produced. It contains a subset of the pieces available in current sets. The Bricks and Pieces service (on the LEGO website under Customer Service) has a slightly larger range of pieces, but still limited to those that are currently produced by LEGO. This service is ...

There are various cases and some shops tend to have quite relaxed rules for what they sell in terms of part variation or used brick policy (basically how much brick is used to be considered acceptable for sale by that particular shop). In your particular case the warning you mentioned was stated in that particular shop's Terms & Conditions. You had to ...

Here is a link to LEGO compatible soccer balls. These GBC balls work flawlessly and were tested at the Brickworld Show on several dozen GBC machine. The balls are still working and are GREAT! 100 pcs = $22.77 or a sample pack of 25 = $9.48. https://www.brickloot.com/products/white-soccer-balls-for-gbc-great-ball-contraption-fits-lego-balls Note: I work ...
