My Offerings Have Pleased the Lego Gods

Yesterday I get an email from my buddy Bob, who is out doing some thrifting, looking for cheap boardgames. He’s come across some Lego sets at Savers and picked them up for me! Do I want him to drop them off? I tell him, “That’s okay, I can wait till Sunday.” (He’s one of the Sunday gaming crowd.) He wants to drop them off, so that’s cool. He tells me the set numbers but I’m working and don’t have time to look them up.

So when he shows up with these, I very nearly swoon:

On the left is set 6210: Jabba’s Sail Barge. Came out in 2006, has 781 pieces, and cost $75. On the right is 7783: The Batcave: The Penguin and Mr. Freeze’s Invasion, from 2006. It has 1075 pieces and went for $90. Bob’s cost? $10.50 for both of them.

Oh, and another thing:

They are complete. Unopened, still in the factory bags. Haven’t even been harvested for minifigs. Bob may have inadvertently seen my “o” face.

This is a score beyond scores, and there’s no way I can only give Bob ten bucks for this. In fact, I am right now trying to locate an ice cream maker that plays blu-ray DVDs and also performs certain sexual acts as a partial payment on this.

    Trust me, seeing your “O” face was payment enough.

    I don’t play blu-ray DVDs, but I am cheap and 2 out of 3 isn’t bad. Any friend of Dave’s is a friend of mine…

  5. Well, if you ever get writer’s block fir a blog entry of the day, do an image of your “O” face. Good deal – am actually glad for you.

    Looks like the Brown Brick bin is going to get full pretty quick! Great Score! Most people would have eBay-ed the hell out of that find. Bob must be a good friend.
