The sellers on bricklink/brickowl doesn't have ways to get elements before they become generally available. As 42099 is brand new, pieces that are (currently) unique to that set probably hasn't made it to those sites yet. Have some patience, they will likely be there shortly. Those sites rely on users submitting inventories so until somebody submits one, ...

A good part of the LEGO experience is building the set. There is little joy in buying a LEGO set that was already built by someone else. So you are right, that a disassembled set is usually viewed as more valuable. However, consider the following points. When people purchase a LEGO set, either new or used, they expect the parts to be sorted in some way into ...

Let me add another perspective to TheBrickBlogger’s answer: when I buy a used set on EBay, I like to have some sort of a visual guarantee that the set is complete and as described. The only way to get that confirmation is by seeing pictures of the built set, ideally from all angles. So, when I sell used sets on EBay, I will make sure the set is fully built, ...

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 ...

Retailers adjust their pricing strategy from year to year, so what happened in previous years may not be necessarily an indication of what will happen this year. In general, LEGO offers Double VIP Points and some sets on sale (usually stuff they want to get rid off, not sets that are popular recent releases) and throws in some freebies. Amazon does their ...

AFAIK you did not commit any crimes, as buying conterfeit products is not considered a crime - even if your wares were counterfeit, but they are probably not, since the basic brick design is not patented anymore and these blocks are decidedly made different and incompatible. Can you post the original message you received from the Hungarian customs agency? I ...

As the one who provided the inventory for an unrelated set, 70825 Queen Watevra's Build Whatever Box!, another set that introduced brand new and (at the time) unique part molds, I can provide a firsthand answer on why this is. On sites like BrickLink, all catalog items are user-provided data, and aren't automatically mined from LEGO or some other database (...

As Henrik stated, they are simply too new. Lego shop has the set listed but with an incomplete parts inventory at the time of this answer. One additional problem I found is that they have even failed to list one of the two parts necessary to complete this joint in the instruction manual itself. I found this information on the review by Huw on Brickset (...

Lego bricks can be purchased individually from Lego.com using their Pick-A-Brick service. https://www.lego.com/en-us/page/static/pick-a-brick?icmp=HP-SHQL-EG-NO-pick-a-120 If you have an official Lego Store near you then buying bricks from their Pick-A-Brick Wall is a less expensive option once you figure out how to maximize the amount of bricks you ...

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 ...

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 ...

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)...

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 ...

Turns out we have two of these...

I got them from here; https://pv-productions.com/product/lego-gbc-balls/ work perfect in my gbc modules. Also they have very cool glow in the dark gbc balls

You can buy boxes for most sets from Bricklink.com. For example, there are world-wide three sellers of the box for set 6389. Unfortunately, getting a box for such an old set will set you back $40-$50, excluding (international) shipping. For set 6669 there are currently also 3 sellers, with prices ranging from $5 for a severely damaged box to $30 for boxes ...

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 ...

Your question could use some clarity. "Bin of Lego" and "pristine condition" seem to contradict itself. You mention the weight, which is standard for selling in bulk, but then ask, "How do I price them?" as if selling sets individually. If the sets are complete they are going to be worth more, especially if the minifigures are with them. Inclusion of ...

Post an auction on ebay, and let the buyers determine the worth. Include a lot of pictures of what is in the lot, so buyers know what they are getting. If you go random, the most folks will pay is what it is worth with all low valued pieces. If you want to make more money, sort the Lego out, and see if you can complete sets. For some sets the complete ...

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 ...

You can also buy bricks on brickowl.com. They cost about 20 cents each thus you can get 50 for 10 AU dollars.
