What a week indeed, as it was filled with great hauls and some very, very rare items.
Of course, there was the May the 4th VIP event, which I already posted about this morning and you can read about here, but that was by far not everything I found this week.
The week started with the delivery of a store display I found, those tubes you have in stores and are normally not for sale. But sometimes, they do pop up and then it`s just a matter of being at the right place at the right time, and so I got this City Police display in my hands.
I also visited my local Lego store earlier this week, to shop for some PAB parts, and the little thingies left or right. This also left me with a Mr Freeze polybag, so far this year this is turning out to be one of the most sought after in fact, so that is great for a future exchange.
I also did some trading with the kid earlier this week, exchanging some of my Star Wars figures he is now after for some of his Lord of the Rings figures, and a Pirates of the Carribean redcoat.
A local toy store chain is now running an action that when you buy any sort of Star Wars set, you get a free polybag of the TIE Advanced with it. So I picked up two microfighters earlier this week, each granting me an additional polybag. I also managed to get a Dimensions Chima character at last, so now each and every game world is open to me.
BrickLink wise, I got a small order in for a voucher that was about to expire, and I grabbed a Gringott`s Kobold, for something you`ll see in about two months time on the exactly why I needed that little fella ;-)
These two Silver Mine Shootouts from the Lone Ranger range have been standing at discount on the shelf of a local toystore for ages now. So I pulled on my brave boots, went in and said I "wanted to liberate them of the sets, what can you do for me?" Well, let`s say they where very glad to move them at last, and the discount they already had was about doubled.
Talking finding old retired sets at discounts, these also came into my possession when I came by a small time store who quit doing Lego years ago. Some nice things amongst these if you ask me, especially the Friends set is a high value roller!
Another Dimensions purchase this week was when I was out strolling with my mum, looking for sets for a mate (to no success) but I finally completed my Dimensions Lord of the Rings sets, who just hadn`t been purchased before for no evident reason.
The final Lego haul was yesterday evening, when I managed to obtain these polybags with that mate in a trade for a Hulkbuster set and some loose figures.
Oh, and I found this dvd on the very cheap as well, to have something to watch while sorting out my loose bricks the coming week...
So yes, this has been quite a spectacular hauling week for me, now to get trading around and build out more of my Tolkien material :-)
