Hi there!

Background story: When I emerged from my "dark ages" about four years ago I dove in very eagerly. I was very fascinated by a) BrickLink and b) all the sets I had never seen before, especially rarer sets from my own childhood. As a result, I acquired a whole lot of sets – many of them pieced together through BrickLink, and some that I bought as sets, but which I assume are copies pieced together by others; and I also bought quite a few (more or less) complete sets. Since then, my taste has turned towards newer stuff, and I've also started MOCing more, in the modern City style, which means that if I ever get the room to build a layout (we'll see) I won't be using the old sets. So now they're just occupying valuable space – and it's time to sell.

I've sorted the sets and put them in ziplock bags. They are now entirely complete, as I've bought all missing pieces via BrickLink. Some of them come with instructions, but most of them don't; some have all the correct stickers, others have some correct stickers, some have substituted stickers, and others again have no stickers at all. See the list below for details on any particular set. The bricks vary in quality – after all, they're used, but I've sorted out the worst ones, although there's probably the odd yellowed white brick – and I can't guarantee that they're entirely correct for the different time periods (i.e. plates could be with or without holes in the studs on the reverse side, clips may not have the correct thickness and so on) but what I can guarantee is that all the bricks are now present.

So we're, in most cases, talking about sets that are probably not of huge interest for collectors who like everything to be correct and in perfect condition. But it could be a good opportunity to build some rare sets – I enjoyed it hugely – and maybe these sets could be interesting as toys instead of collectors' items (after all, that's what they were made for...).

You'll find pictures of all the sets here – apart from three sets which I forgot to snap pics of: 6353, 6689, and 8835.

These are the sets I'm selling – and bear in mind that this is a mixture of copies and original sets, but as a rule the rarer sets are probably copies. Note also that the sets may be missing pieces in the pictures – don't worry, the pieces have since then been ordered, and all the sets are sold in complete condition - except for stickers and, in the case of set 6589, a baseplate that I never got when I bought the set originally.

All the sets may contain dust :)

Please note that I most likely won't be interested in selling these sets one by one, unless they're big.

If you're interested, PM me. The prices are based on BrickLink prices, but I've generally aimed a bit lower than the cheapest set for sale on BL, since quite a few of these probably are copies – and if you're interested in buying several sets, let me know and we'll work out a discount.

If you'd be interested in taking all (or most of) these sets off my hands, the discount would be very nice.

Oh, and keep in mind that I live in Norway. Could be nice for you to know, I guess.

I'm giving this a nudge just to add what might be an interesting fact:

I'll be going to the LEGO Fan Weekend in Skærbæk, Denmark the last weekend in September. So if you're interested in any of these sets and are going to Skærbæk, or know somebody who's going, I can bring the sets to Denmark - that way you'll avoid shipping costs and any customs fees.

All of the sets in the above post are still for sale, with the same opportunities for discounts if you buy several sets.

To make things a bit easier for you, here are small thumbnails of all the sets that are still for sale (taken from this folder, where you can find bigger images of them all):

I repeat: Although there are pieces that are clearly missing in the images, they have been replaced after I took the pictures.

EDIT: First post updated with sold sets.

Another little nudge, hopefully it won't be considered unnecessary bumping:

I'm going to the LEGO Fanwelt in Cologne, Germany in two weeks. I'll have plenty of room in my suitcase going down there, so if you're interested in any of these sets and are going to Cologne, or know somebody who's going, I can bring the sets to Germany - that way you'll avoid shipping costs and any customs fees.

I've updated the first post and the pictures in the second post with sold sets. The offer for discounts if you buy several sets, still applies.
