As a Lego seller, or someone who wishes to begin selling Legos, you must be careful when making your purchase.  After I purchased my first lot, I was astonished to find my precious Legos intermingled with junk.  I’m talking about leaking batteries, fingernails (I am NOT kidding!), trash, coins, rocks, used popsicle sticks, nails, toy cars…are you getting the picture?  Worst of all, my supposed “Lego” lot was about 50% imitation bricks, parts, and pieces.  My seller did not make amends and I was out a lot of money.  I did learn a valuable lesson, though.
Finding the right original pieces for this set is so darn difficult (many of them were made only for this set and never by another one) so several fans just adapt to modern times and recreate this set in a different color set.
Conclusion: If you can get it for MSRP of $34.99, it’s a buy. I wouldn’t suggest paying collectible prices, as LEGO will undoubtedly be producing more of these, and will probably create different Minecraft sets in the near future. At least I hope they do. I would love to add more modules to this set, and I’ll be interested to see tiny zombies, skeletons, and mob animals.
LEGO 75059 Sandcrawler is not among the oldest sets in LEGO’s current catalog, but it is approaching the age at which it can be considered at risk of retiring soon. This set is the second LEGO model based on the… Continue Reading →
How many pieces are there? – Unless you have actually counted them, don’t give an estimate of how many pieces are in your lot. A better way to quantify your lot is by weight (not including the container or instruction books).
Lego ideas just had a big review deadline of submitted sets that met the 10,000 supports goal. So there will be new sets in the near future. I imagine they are retiring the sets because they were meant as limited runs, did not sell as well as they had hoped, or just want to make room and a fresh list of Ideas sets. But regardless I am excited for the potential new sets, as many of them I had supported. There is some crazy talent going on over at the Lego Ideas website!
If find the challenges of putting together a set fun in itself. I’m currently putting together 10231 Space Shuttle Explorer, 10197 Fire Station, 8480 Technic Space Shuttle and 6395 Victory Raceway (which I desperately wanted, but never owned as a kid). I could easily buy them on eBay or elsewhere, but the challenge of this is far more interesting.
I’m a big lego fan and really like this castle. The only problem with it really is that the Gate section falls apart easily, which is a pain because it takes a long time to build. I added some solid bricks on the inside of the gate walls and that helped give it more stability. The kids in my 5 – 7 year old classroom loved it, as does my daughter.
No, I wrote this article just a couple of days ago. I didn’t see the Dragon on the list, so I could have missed it, or items also sometimes appear and then disappear from the list. I have seen that happen many times. That’s why it’s important to regularly check. 😉

Let’s be honest; Legos can be expensive.  The inner Star Wars fanatic might really want to buy that 4,000 piece Death Star, but that’s simply not for everybody.  It certainly isn’t practical if you need to find something for your niece or nephew’s birthday present.  We’re here to help.  Below is a list of the cheaper Lego Star Wars sets that we love, with a brief summary of why we love them.  We limited this list to setes with an MSRP under $25.  
Lego released a Friends theme tree house #3065 in 2012 that was a great set and, I believe, one that sold well. It was also a great price at 19.99. This set, 31010, costs a little bit more, adds a larger structure and has a more gender neutral color scheme. As a Creator set, 31010 has directions for three models (you build one at a time): the tree house, a waterside building with a small dock, and a two story barn-like structure. The set includes one mini-figure (a boy) with a walkie talkie, a frog, treasure map, and pizza. The tree house features a folding ladder (very nifty design), a tipper with “water” in it, winch with hook and trash-can, telescope, clubhouse with attic and lift-off top, bed, a hidden compartment (in the tree) for the treasure map, a brick-built wagon, and a brick-built dog. The waterside structure has a small oven with a lift-off top. The little barn features the winch.
Luke’s Landspeeder (75173):  There’s a lot to love here with the classic landspeeder build which also includes three classic minifigurines: Luke, C3PO, and Obi-Wan (or Ben, if you prefer) Kenobi. The Tusken Raider also looks fantastic.
One way to find value for money on eBay is to buy loose lots of bulk Lego. Zoom in on the photos on eBay to see if there are any pieces/sets/figures you can recognize, and be prepared to bid $10 a pound (or more) for the lot. (Non-Harry Potter Lego tends to go for around $5 a pound.) Sometimes, you might notice most of a set or several great figures amid a sea of random Legos. The question is, whether your child would want the bulk parts to build things from their imagination or only be interested in the exact sets with instructions. If you were so inclined, you could buy the large lots, remove the parts/mini-figure you really wanted and resell the rest on eBay. That’s rather time-consuming. (Although to be fair, searching eBay and the internet at large for discontinued Harry Potter Lego sets is a time-consuming process, if you want to find value for money.)
