Totally not bragging

Postby richardanthonyc » Thu Aug 07, 2014 7:58 am

Ebay is amazing - Bluesecrets recommended UK ebay for great deals and I got all of the above for £48 - that's 34 vintage minifigs that would have probably cost twice that on Bricklink! :D

You are so totally bragging. :wink: I'm jealous. Your UK ebay is a great thing. Those figs have far more parts to them than I thought they would have. Lucky you. And...glad to help!

Good haul. I used to get some pretty good buys on ebay, especially if you're willing to stump up the money for bigger lots like this one.

I find people often split lots down into more 'affordable' auctions (I know that if I'm selling it's what I do) as it maximises profit and minimises loss (ie if the auction under-performs, you haven't ending up selling 20 minifigs for £2...).

Seeing the influx of chinese clone/counterfeit brands on ebay now I think classic lego is the only 'safe' stuff to bid on (any licensed theme is definitely out. Even modern castle stuff is being 'cloned').
Less talking, more MOCing.

Yeah totally agree - ebay is swamped with Chinese stuff that is fake. Saw one castle set which actually blatantly had Batlord shields everywhere but was a different brand
