I know Introductions is not exactly the right place for this question but I'm not allowed to post it in the Buying Lego in Ireland forum. Sorry about that.
The idea appeared during a conversation with a friend who found a lego fan shop in Poland. That shop, apart from current catalogue sets available everywhere, sold older sets that wouldn't be on shelves in superstores anymore and really vintage boxes too. Also current sets that are rare to be found in big stores (like Architecture for example). There was also a huge collection of minifigs including all the Star Wars characters that ever appeared in lego sets and video games. That much I know from my friend's description.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but there doesn't seem to be a place like that anywhere in Dublin. I wonder would there be demand for it.
I'd like to hear what you guys think about it.
Interesting development reported in the UK:
Part of the Toymaster store in Exeter is being converted into a Lego brand store. Wouldn't it be cool if they can do the same thing on Jervis street?
Just noticed on Shop at Home that there is now year-round free shipping on all orders over €55.
Any tips on how to make a few sales on bricklink and finding a few customers? Also I haven't got a clue how to price fairly.. Ebay seems a bit high for some of the stuff when trying to come up with prices. Is there even demend enough to setup and try running a bricklink account?
I was in Smyths on Friday and saw that the superstar destroyer
10221 is available in the Naas store. Its dearer than LS@H though.
Picked up a box of Series 10 minifigures yesterday. No Mister Gold in our box but distribution was as follows:
2 x Librarian
2 x Medusa
6 x Roman Commander
4 x Warrior Woman
4 x Tomahawk Warrior
6 x Skydiver
2 x Bumblebee Girl
2 x Grandpa
4 x Paintball Player
2 x Captain "Birdseye"
4 x Pierrot Clown
4 x Revolutionary Soldier
6 x Baseball Fielder
2 x Teenage Girl
4 x Painter
6 x Motorcycle Mechanic
Good luck to all in your search for Mister Gold!
Anyone near a Tesco that has two of these on sale for 16each that could grab me two i'd be very grateful, my two local tesco's did not have any.
If anyone sees this set in their local shop could you pick it up for me or let me know where to get it?
It's a 2012 set but it no longer seems to be available in Smyths or Argos.
I know Pixmania have it for €33 but that would add another tenner in shipping...
