Yea, I have a huge LEGO bin (Probably weighs as much as me lol!) where I put all of my LEGO's. I don't see any reason to keep sets together (Especially glued) for a long period of time...

What 'e said. Minus the sell rare parts, as I would never trade lego for money (except peachies...). Of course, I do often trade (read as 'rip off') with my friends. The ignorant fools own so much classic pirates and neo classic space, but they think that modern day star wars figs are cooler. I have a field day with them... :twisted:

I wish I had more friends like that...

And actually, I pretty much just sell rare parts and extra Star Wars figs so I can buy more Lego sets, like Blacktron ones. It's basically trading a minifig for a set, with a middle man in between.

Yea, my friend is going to give me all of her Legos, which isn't a lot so she says. She never really played with them and she says she has a bunch of Star Wars sets. I'm hoping there's a Yoda in there so I can sell his green butt and give her some money because I'm nice like that.

I think I couldn't take LEGO from someone, even if that person offered it. It sometimes feels like stealing.

But you're nice to give her some money for it.

LOL, you're giving HER the money?

I take other people's Legos all the time.

Well, I told her I've been playing with my Legos and she's like "I have some I can give to you". I said that I would give her some money for them and she said no. So then I told her if I find any that are worth any money I would give her some.

If she won't accept money then you should offer to make out with her as payment instead. It's the fair thing to do.
