I would very much like the coordinates of this particular dark alley where you found this deal :pir-oh:

Any pics?

It was a random listing on Craigslist that I came across while aimlessly browsing.

The boxes look good too, 8479 sealed alone goes for more than $500 on BL.

I got a brand new Sian in unopened box for € 230. That is about € 100 below normal resale in Norway... Birthday gift for myself :)

Great score there man, on a side note whenever I see a set priced so much higher than RRP, like $500 for 8479, I have to wonder has anybody ever actually purchased sets priced so high, or is it just someone hoping for a sucker.

I wonder too, but Bricklink indeed gives you the prices of the prices of the sold sets in the previous months... So someone bought them at a certain price

I got the 42139 All Terrain Vehicle for € 50 brand new. 30% off on a webstore in Norway - Jollyroom.no  Very happy with that, so I bought two! :)

Was really tempted to buy 42145 & 42144 BUT checking my surroundings I found 42053 (incl. PF), 42042, 42052 and 9396 for a total of 200€ (4 different private sellers :) Only had to get two instructions separately as I prefer building from paper. Which forced me to make bricklink orders which made me buy more pieces as it absolutely does not make any sense to buy only instructions and pay shipping :pir-huzzah2:

I think I got something today that qualifies...

I picked up a lot with a bunch of late 90s technic, with some older and newer stuff here and there. I haven't gone through it all, but here is what I have found in the two boxes so far:

  • 3x Scala trash bin (aka P1 exhaust)
  • 12x white hard shock absorber
  • 28x blue piston
  • 10x red piston
  • 14x white 2L axle
  • 4x red 1x6 thin liftarm
  • 10x damped shock absorber
  • 8x red 9.5 long shock absorber
  • 16x yellow 9.5 long shock absorber
  • 23x dark gray 9.5 long shock absorber
  • 15x black 9.5 long shock absorber
  • 2x 8448 steering hubs
  • 14x wheel hubs from 8466
  • 3x power puller tires+1 unprinted tire with wheels
  • 4x Williams Michelin tires

The parts are also in excellent condition for their age. No dust, little to no yellowing. I think this has sat on the attic for the last 10-20 years or so.

Also included in the lot is:

  • 1.5x set 8466 (I found two sets of axles built, one set was claimed to have been built recently)
  • Complete 8417
  • Complete 8297
  • Complete speed computer

So far, just the parts I listed above put into a bricklink wanted list, would cost me €750 to order. I paid €275. And there is still so, so much more I spotted, including classic space stuff, incomplete sets such as 8880, 8448, 8865, 8250 and more.

Best deal I've gotten was the 911 GT3 42056 for $200 USD, a few years ago from Craigslist.  Well kept in the original box, along with extra pieces he'd ordered to Pimp it Up.  I passed up being able to pick up a Bugatti 42083 for another $300, but the Porsche turned out to be a far better deal!

Other than that, I paid $120 for the 911 RSR 42096 and $56 for the Ducati Panigale 42107, both on sale for new kits.

Also paid $130 for an 8880 Super Car, but that was years ago when it came out.  :laugh:

Not exactly a bargain, but chuffed to get 42129 for €180. Seems to have been the last one in the country in from Smyths.
