They are cheap now, but in eight days when the auction ends, they'll be just as expensive as everything else on ebay (especially now that you informed the entire world about this  *sweet* )

I have my reasons for that... >:-)

Yeah, that's what I thought, too.
But thank you anyway, Mr. Tiber!

I also began to dream and smile when I saw his auction for the good old pirate ship 6285. I own that one, too, bought it as a teenager and still love it. Maybe i should build it sometime soon, because I haven't done so in years, it's waiting in all it's small pieces in some bags and cartoons...

Anyone considered bidding on one? You would do me a great favor if you bid...

To make it short and simple, it says something like this:
This set is no longer available in stores. Bricks are in mint condition, comes with box and instructions.

Then it says they have more sets up for auction.

Shipping is 8 Euro in Germany, you have to ask them how much they are for shipping to foreign countries.

To other countries, it's 10 euro uninsured and 19 euro insured.


And BTW, if you want to bid for the Eldorado Fortress, you have to bid more than 30 euro, because I tried bidding less before but it wasn't the highest bid...

Someone else placed a bid for me, but higher then I wanted...
I thought I should wait till others would placed bids, and 4 of the 5 overbid me, but that skull Island is still there with me as highest bidder..

Well,

I see the prices got a little higher since this thread was created... Except for the Skull Island

Is there anyone of you who placed a bid?
The skull island is still quite cheap for a set with box...

Be  fast because the auction ends in 4 hours!!

There's a little bit of everything in there, even new castle.

I wonder if we're looking at a future AFOL who will regret this auction, and somewhere, a current one who'll never forget how wonderful it was to buy.

Shadows is looking for stalkers. Yep, you heard me right. CLICKY!

Oh my.. thats a nice bunch of bricks.. I'd like those.. but I'm not sure I will be able to pay for it (and all the shipping costs) if the bids continues as they've done so far.

What is the average price of 1 kilo of mixed bricks on ebay?

Lego - that's where the future's at, m'boy. Invest today!

More precious than gold, more valuable than saffron.

Especially when the oil runs out...  :wink:

Interesting you should mention oil because LEGO is made from ABS plastic which stands for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene.

Butadiene is a petroleum hydrocarbon obtained from butane - and what's the primary ingredient in petroleum - oil...

So, no oil, no Lego? Or can butane be sourced independently as a natural gas?

I would presume so, but I'm not chemist so I'm not sure whether that's suitable for producing Butadiene.   Someone who has more knowledge on this matter will need to comment.

Butane is part of Natural gas, but Butadiene can also be cracked from oil or ethanol.
