Reassembling a Large LEGO Lot (LLL)!

Recommended Posts

I recently bought a Large LEGO Lot (LLL), and I plan to chronicle my endeavors here. Usually when I buy a LLL, the bricks just get assimilated into the collective. This LLL was different. It had a number of partially assembled sets that were easily identified including a number of Star Wars sets. And a Monster Fighters Haunted House. :grin:

4/10/16 Update

Here's the second batch of sets I am reassembling.

21115 The First Night - Minecraft. 90% complete. I know I saw the figures as I was going through things, but don't have them with the set. Also missing some jumper plates and bright green bricks.

21113 - The Cave - Minecraft. 90% complete. Same story as above.

21117 The Ender Dragon - Minecraft. 30% complete. Sadly, I don't remember seeing any of the printed dragon pieces.

75003 A-wing. 95% complete. Missing some pieces for the flick missiles. And I know I saw Han and Admiral Ackbar. Just need to find them again. :-/

4/4/16 Update

Here's a couple picture from the ad for the second half of the LLL I bought. Sadly, I don't have pictures of the first batch before I sorted them.

Here are some of the sets I managed to build so far.

75021 - Republic Gunship. I have since Padme's hair since taking the picture. Only missing the stickers.

7778 - Midi-scale Millenium Falcon. Missing the radar dish, but I have not looked very hard for it. I am confident it will be found!

3180 - Octan Tank Truck. Missing the fuel pump, but again, have not looked real hard for it.

75004 - Z-95 Headhunter. 100% complete!

Easier said than done. Sadly, the original owner had opened both #1 bags, and built them. Those parts are hidden among almost 40 lbs of loose bricks. On the positive side, all the other bags are sealed. The Star Wars sets are mostly built, and were separated better. I plan to start with those and hopefully those builds will deplete the pile of random stuff a bit.

Major update in first post! I did a lot of building and organizing this weekend!

Any idea what set this model may have come from?

Added four more in process builds to the original post. One Star Wars set, and three Minecraft sets.

It was almost worth it for the Haunted House alone. My goal is to sell off enough stuff to recoup half the cost. I got it for around $5/pound.

I love LLL's on my 4th one right now, great way to fill in the dark ages,my fave is when you bricklink a piece to I.D. it and it only appears in 1 set so no guess work left.

And i've just bought another one on the net but spotted a pencil sharpner in the mix, it will be my 4th lot with some kind of blade in it a box cutter blade was the worst so far. thats 4 outof 5 lots

What with kids these days? :wacko:

Yes, specialty pieces or unique minifigs help to identify what you have.

I find all sorts of garbage in LLL's I have purchased. Nerf darts, key chains, marbles, etc. If it's plastic, it gets tossed into the bin I guess.

Sorry for the lack of updates. I decided to do some sorting of the loose bricks to hopefully speed the reassembling process. I'm sorting pieces by color so I have smaller piles to go through. I also separated out all the printed pieces, or pieces with stickers. All technic pieces. and all smaller pieces; 1x1s, 1x2s, etc.

Hi guys. I found these three chunks of models in my LLL. I'm not sure if they are from official models, or if they were just things the previous owner had built. My gut tells me they are official builds. Any idea what they may be from? Do they look familiar at all?

The one on the bottom is from a Marvel set with a little green speedboat and some Iron Men.

Googled it, it's called "Iron Man Extremis Sea Port Battle". I have no idea what that means, but there you are.

Thank you! That would explain the Iron Man I found.
