    OK, well, lets see... I'm a Teen Christian guy from down in Christchurch, New Zealand. My Favourite theme would be Star Wars, but I also like Technic, Castle, City, and the bigger exclusives like the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, some of the Architecture series and so on... I do a bit of trading around the place, and have a bit of a part time business selling Lego. I program robots with Mindstorms, and have gone in and out of programming for competitions over the years. That's about all you need to know about me then... See you around EB!

  1. Hey folks, I have a sealed 10179 Millennium Falcon I'm keep to trade for some newer sets. Unfortunately the box is a bit hurt from serious shelf-wear in one corner, and minor water damage in the corner. Box was opened to check condition and everything inside is mint. It's just the exterior box that is damaged. Pictures available to interested persons I'm particularly interested in bulk polybags, but am potentially open to a huge range of sets (including multiples). However I'm only really interested in new (sealed) sets. Could be open to bricklink store credit if you have lots of sets. My guess is that this is worth ~$4000 US, so am looking for roughly this kind of value in exchange. Strictly no sales at this stage. Might consider selling later in the year if I can't trade. Happy to deal internationally. Look forward to discussing options!

    That's a bargain! I'd give him $410 ;)
  3. For some reason I'm unable to PM you. How many are you after, and what price range are you looking at? I have a total of 24 figures, all basically new (from 4 copies of 9471). Let me know what's of interest. I'm based in NZ but accept paypal.

    Man, I was referring to the sale a couple of days ago but the sale yesterday/this morning was/is even better. However half the sets were sold out by the time I got online. I really need to keep a closer eye of that site :)

    Man, did anyone see/grab any of the deals on the Warehouse Red alert site on Thursday? Quite gutted I missed a few of those, some really good deals! Would have loved a few of those Lion Temple sets (Which were 70% off!).

    Do you recall if they had any other Exclusives on sale? Thats a decent price for both those sets MISB, if you want them sealed.

    It was a shame that Toyco disallowed giftcards to be used during the sale - I still have a couple that I'm waiting to use on sets on sale. None the less, I caved in and bought the new Volvo front end loader at 20% off. It's going to be a reward for when I finish exams.. if I can hold out that long! I had to open the box just to see inside - mate, the wheels and bucket are huge! Very exciting. That X-wing was a very good deal! I'm surprised they seem to be going on sale so frequently, I would have expected it to be a popular set, but perhaps not so much.

    Indeed, that comp is part of the lead up to the CHCH brick show this weekend! Would love to see any other EBers if you're going.

    $6k? Interesting, I would have to assume that toyworld must have allowed multiple uses of vouchers then? Good on them.

    I'd go with the Simpsons house - Orthanc has been around a little while now and I don't get the impression it has been a huge seller, so I'm sure it will stick around on sale. Simpsons houses seem to be selling out fast though! At 30% off, its a pretty well priced (That said, they both actually have quite reasonable $pp ratios as of todays standard). And then if you change your mind, I'll happily grab it off you! :P

    Went to Toyworld today, the whole thing was a bit silly really - They 'didn't have' Simpsons house nor the MKII Crane (Or several other newer larger sets, noticeably - which they did have just a couple of days earlier). Somewhat typical of the toyworlds here in CHCH. It'll be interesting to see if they're back on the shelves after the sale. I picked up 4 Simpsons figures and left it at that - a little unfortunate. Back to internet shopping then, I guess.

    Heh, It'll be interesting to see how/if he responds to that. He doesn't seem to like people telling him that they're not worth that much :P I considered making a comment but figured I didn't want to get flamed either. I'll just think positively that he seriously doesn't want to sell them In other news, next weekend is toyworld's big 'you choose the discount' promo. I'm planning to grab the Simpsons house if I can! Plus maybe the Technic crane..

    Has anyone else looked at that Star Wars UCS collection on Trademe? Sheesh. The guy is asking a mint for them. Not a bad collection, but I'll be very surprised if he gets a local buyer at that price.

    Hmmm, not so keen at 30% off, thanks for mentioning it though. .. I had the opportunity of loads at 50% off, but turned that down hoping they'd get lower (Decided I'd get 2 at anything under $50, and several more if much lower). Now that they're lower, they're gone! I only wanted them for parts anyway, so I'm not too upset, but would be keen to grab a couple. I guess the next place to watch is Toyco - they cleared POTC at 60% off, hopefully they'll do the same with LR.

    Pretty crazy deal. I got 2 when they were $50 but had to buy another at $40 (73% off!). I also picked up the smaller Teepee set, down to $20.. Dare I say it, even at $20, I didn't feel it was a bargain. That set was horrendously overpriced. They also have some of the space aliens on clearance. I'm really keen to buy a pile of the LR 'City showdown' set, but haven't been able to find any in CHCH Warehouses. I don't even know how much they are, but I'm sure they'd be cheap. If anyone's warehouse still has a couple (or heaps) left, feel free to let me know!
