6575 ARCTIC POLAR BASE COMPLETE WITH INSTRUCTION, BOTH BRICKS AND INSTRUCTION IN GOOD COND.

-6579 ARCTIC ICE SURFER, COMPLETE WITH INSTRUCTION, BOTH BRICKS AND INSTRUCTION IN GOOD COND.

-6520 ARCTIC MOBILE OUTPOST COMPLETE, BRICKS AND INSTRUCTION IN GOOD COND.

-6573 ARCTIC EXPEDITION COMPLETE, BRICKS AND INSTRUCTION IN GOOD COND

Still, all those for 40 bucks is still really good.

Intended to post earlier with pictures but got lazy... Bought the Pirates London Escape set at Wal-Mart on sale for $35, plus a couple Collectable minifgs, the Minotaur and the Skater Girl. All in all, a pretty sweet set. Two awesome carts/chariots/carriages, plus about 5 Peaches (but awesome ones at that), and a neat little pub, "The Captain's Daughter". I'm very happy with this set indeed! Minotaur was just icing (GF took the Skater Girl).

That's all for now.

Nice. I got about 12 of those guys for like 10 bucks with their helmets and stuff off of bricklink a while back. Still can't find a good use for 'em though (Guess I need to make some vehicles).

Me too. That's why I took a stab at it.

Also, I picked up a couple of more ebay items:

Approx. $12.50

Approx. $10.50

I'm going to stop bidding on cheap Lego now.

I think I'll pick up where you left off. Those are all good hauls! Wonder if I could find anything on there for cheap that would fit my armies; although most of the time I just use Bricklink.

I think the best way to bid is to bid on something that's very low priced and near to ending. That's how I got 3 of those. The Blacktron one was sort of surprising because I only bid on it about 2 days in advance and then won it. Then there was this thing that I bid on 4 days ago that never got another bid:

It was $9, but I was completely surprised to win it.

The last thing I bid on has 3 days to go and so far I'm the only one who's bid on it. We'll see if I come out with a win from 7 days in advance. :)

I never trusted E-bay, not after waiting 6 months to get battlefront 2 in the mail. I have been thinking of selling a little bit of lego, or something though. I'm pre-ordering this: http://www.gamestop.com/xbox-360/consoles/xbox-360-320gb-limited-edition-halo-4-console/103352 and say what you want, but halo is a damn fine game. I can't really work enough to get it, because at the shop I work at the store is WAY over staffed.
