These "Guess what I got in the mail" have become very popular!  But alas, my brain is too focused on assignments to pay this great thought at the moment.

My guess would be that on the basis of a complete army of LEGO, you alone were able to sleep on a lot of blankets without every fearing that you would have to run into the forest and deal with evil men... perhaps I am wrong... or am I?

If I'm not mistaken, but is it "LOT OF FORESTMEN"? (it is, isn't it?) :P

But i must compliment you on your clever puzzle, although it was too easy...

Oh it was way too hard for me...  But then again my mind is on another plane of existence at the moment.  Not the plane I want it to be on though.

It appears this puzzle was very short lived.  Oh well, at least mine is unsolved....

Phes; have any of these auctions sold to Eurobricks members?

Just wondering, because a couple new topics every day on eBay deals is getting a little silly.

To date, I've only posted 5 eBay auctions for the purpose of EuroBricks to bid on.  3 of them the other day.
I'm not sure where you've got this idea of posting new topics every day from, but if they are of no use to EuroBrick members I'm not going to waste my time in doing so.

Ok, this is a Mister Phes moaning thread
I like those.

mister_phes, on Jun 12 2005, 03:29 PM, said:

Do these people that bid on these auction not know of LEGO.com
No.

mister_phes, on Jun 12 2005, 03:29 PM, said:

and not go to stores
No.

mister_phes, on Jun 12 2005, 03:29 PM, said:

and check the prices
Check what? eBbay is the cheapest place to get stuff. Didn't you know?

mister_phes, on Jun 12 2005, 03:29 PM, said:

or have some disability preventing them from doing so?
Yes.

mister_phes, on Jun 12 2005, 03:29 PM, said:

They could get exactly the same sets cheaper if they bothered to get up off their butts.
As mentioned before: that can't be - there's no cheaper place than eBay.

Ok, my rant is done.
Loved it. Keep 'em coming.

Oh yes, I'm well aware that some great bargains can be found on eBay.  But for this particular auction I could have just went to a store and got it cheaper.  One of the sets is now half price on S&H.

But I don't really care.  Those tools can bid to their hearts content and spend more than they need to.  What that does is makes them have less money to spend on the sets I want bid on.  So in reality its probably doing me a favour!

That is true - but unfortunately they usually spend their money on sets I also would like to have (like sets with a box)  :'(

None at the moment. Usually I just browse through the auctions and if something strikes me as a possible deal I watch it.

What I always look for are a reasonably priced 7740 (max. EUR 100) and/or 7760 (max. EUR 40). Unfortunately those two always wander off into the world of the insane bidder...

I know what you mean by the world of the insane bidder...

You check out the This auction is insane!  thread - its got a link to the most outrageous auction I've ever seen.  Sure the item is worth something, but not that much!

I just went through that thread. And I wasn't even that surprised anymore. Is that a bad sign?

BTW, is the yoda-toast auction over? It was a long time ago...

The purpose of this thread is to reduce the need to create a new thread for every single eBay Auction that comes along.
