Ihira how bad were the prices for picking up the older sets? I know they can cost quite a bit.
I keep track of all my Lego purchases and how much I spent on them so I don't go out of control.
The discontinued old sets costs in CANADIAN $ in order of purchase. shipping included.
7097 Troll's Mountain fortress - $147 from ebay. Got caught by duty fees :(
7094 King's Castle siege - $175 from ebay. The prices of this set are quite insane on ebay, I've seen them go over $200 usual.
8877 Vladek's Dark FOrtress - Brand new $133 from ebay.
6093 Flying Ninja Fortress - $110 from ebay. This one is rare and it was a buy it now auction so I jumped on it.
6082 Fire Breathing Forress - $59 from ebay.
8781 Castle of Morcia - $85 from ebay. Very good deal for a discontinued Castle!
6085 Black Monarch's Castle - $94 from ebay.
10176 Royal Knight's Castle - $134 from bricklink.
I already owned 6081 Kings Mountain Fortress from a kid and MMV and 7046 Kingdoms Castle I bought during sales from the US. Canadian retail prices and their sales are pathetic compared to the US I rarely buy from here haha.
I've spent about $1800CAD since May 2011, Castle and non-castle which is not too bad considering I did have to pay premium on some of the Castles.
Someone spending $15000 in 1 year seriously?!? o_0
