I do not know if this could be described as great buy, but today I was able to purchase new sealed 42095 box for about 52,5€.

(Of course all parts are included :laugh:)

I wouldn't pay a penny for 42095.

And here are my last purchases:

Lego City 60159 for $16

Lego City 60160 for $28

Lego City 60140 for $35

Yes, I collect when possible cheap Lego City sets to build a small Lego town in future.

I'm so happy that i finally got around to order it. Can't wait for all the RC shenanigans.

I follow a local online auction site for nice bargains, and found 42043 Arocs there with 50€ starting bid. So I thought I'll follow this one until there's only few hours or so left, but as it happened, I was doing other stuff outside the house for the whole day and forgot about the auction. When I got back inside it was several hours over the time limit and no bids. So I messaged the seller to put it up again so I could buy it, explaining about my forgetfulness. The next day it was up again, so I immediately put a bid on it to avoid repeating my mistake. Apparently this time though, someone else noticed it also and a short bidding war ensued. In the end I won it, but had to pay 74€ for it, which I still consider a bargain, it even had usable batteries! There was also some 20€ extra expense in retrieving it but now it sits safely in my home. It's assembled as the B-model and while checking it's workings I found that one of the pneumatic cylinders doesn't move at all, so I guess I'll have to do some debugging on it.

I found 2 years ago 2 5571 complete black cats for 70 € each.

And a complete 8485 for 39 € on ebay !!!

But my best one is for 80 €, 3 years ago in a french site (leboncoin.fr) :

It was really 80 € for all the models you can see in the pictures !!! There was a little box too with some pieces to complete the models.

My wife couldn't believe it when i went back, my car was full of legos !!!! I never found such a big bargain.

I got it because i lived near the man who sold his sons legos...

They literally had no idea how expensive those sets still are.. I suspect that he was just old and thought legos as kids playthings that are worthless after buying them.

Smyth's are great for discounts. I'd take them over TRU any day. :grin:

Got a 9395 at the Cobblers Brick Fair just recently for £85. The box was opened and a bit worn but all the bags were still sealed.

I’ve kind of had a mini dark ages (dark months?) but went on a spending spree again. Here it goes:

8458 (missing engine) 8457 (one complete and two spare rear wheels), 8653 (complete) 8285 (complete), 8421 (complete), 8420 (missing front axle), 8434 (complete), 9398 (complete) 8043 (complete), a bin full of random spare parts containing all kinds of parts and sets. Lastly, though not technic, a bin full of 9v train stuff.

All of the above for €750. Not all sets are complete, but the big Technic sets (mostly) are.  

Also got a buggy motor today for €25. 

I’m not going to be bored for a while :laugh:

And I sold all of them to one guy for 1400€ a week after

Don't know where to post this but i just ordered a buwizz and i'm so happy! 

I'm just your normal average joe and not a very serious lego professional but just a hobbyist struggling on a budget. 
So it's a big deal for me..
