LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 23

Found some potato quality 1x4 bricks, 1 tan and 2 medium blue.


Maybe it's not the bricks that are potato quality. Meh...

LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 21

One solitary piece this week but kind of neat. A clean printed DUPLO 1x2x2. My kids enjoy having some of these extra decorative pieces. Even if they ignore the printing most of the time.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 19

Some delicious finds this week. A very large chunk of the Bat-Copter and a bit of Man-Bat's glider from 76011 Man-Bat Attack. Minus Bat parts, Batman, Man-Bat, and Bat stickers. Also a bald Karai from something something Ninjago Ninja Turtles*. The ever present Duplo and Bionicle did not disappoint. The Duplo car base looks like a dog or child took a bite out of it. The wheel still rolls though!


*edit: Thanks Brad!

LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 16

Again on the same job site as a couple of weeks ago. Some more sheetrock had been removed and I saw this near the stairs. Maybe with a little more luck I'll be able to build a whole set!

*Edit:

After I posted this, Mrs. Dagsbricks presented me with a few pieces that she found yesterday:


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 15

Woot for Mrs. Dagsbricks! Brought me home a 16x16 plate in Bright Light Blue!


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 14

This week's find was so tiny it's almost not worth mentioning. I was at a jobsite, a house undergoing remodel. Old owners had gone, a company had bought it to renovate it and correct a poorly done addition. Down in a heater vent I found this:

Whee.

LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 12

LEGO Finds are back to Thursdays! This week was a couple of Bright Light Orange (AKA BLO) Duplo blocks. It's a rather mezmerizing color.

Also found a Ninjago Spinner Arena. Somebody had a $9 price tag on it. Must be wishful thinking. It's in used but nice shape. BL sellers have them for a third that price... and none have sold in the last 6 months. Good call giving up, mystery seller.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 10

A few quickies today. A Primo figure, in primo condition. Also a Duplo 4-wheeler. It's got an active suspension. The 3 year old boy is gonna love it!

LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 9

Pretty basic finds today. I went at the end of the day on Friday so Most everything had been picked through. Found a tub (no lid) and a back issue of LEGO Club magazine. I normally wouldn't care about the magazine but LEGO seems to refuse me service no matter how many times I sign up. It came for a while until the end of 2013 when I re-upped. Then it quit. I tried once or twice after that and still I got no LEGO Club magazine. Whatever, I haven't missed it apparently. Unless I see a copy of it.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 7

Story time! Last night I was working on completing one of the original Ninjago spinners sets. I noticed that the spinner itself is composed of no less than five individual pieces. I couldn't detach some of them without gouging the plastic, so I left it alone. I made a note to look for one on my next order.

Today on my LEGO Finds adventure what should I find but a generation 1 spinner. Just... like... I... wanted. Divine intervention? If not, it's an AWFULLY strong coincidence. Much like R2-D2 not that long ago. Not only that but there was a generation 2 spinner as well. Look for some more biopsy posts coming soon.

One of the wheel plates from the DUPLO plane a few weeks ago, plus Holley Shiftwell and a Primo block. The Friends spatula was a neat little find too. Plus a bunch more of the clones from last week.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 6

A quick look-through today.  Four City party bags.  These are official LEGO branded products made by design-ware.com.

Also some odd clones.  No markings whatsoever but the studs have divots and are much larger in proportion than LEGO bricks.  The single white piece has a logo.  A stylized 'S' that looks like a ribbon, with two dots below.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 4

I found a few Duplo airplane parts this week.  Then the airplane.  Oh... my... gee oh es aitch this thing is huge.  Biggest single LEGO piece I've ever handled.  At 18.5" from tip to tail it's darn near 60 studs in length.  Okay, so it's really about 7 molded pieces all held together with screws.  I'll have to dissect it and publish my findings.  Wednesday perhaps?

Also a pink lid, some scrungy plates (you're welcome kids), a full minifig and some where are my pants, plus a freaking ugly Bionicle promo from McDonald's.  Anyone want it?  Free even?



LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 3

Apparently someone's mom thought that incomplete LEGO sets were no longer worth keeping.  Completely misses the point of LEGO but whatever.  I'm happy to be steward of the LEGO discards.  Seems like City is strong this week.  Some mostly complete sub assemblies.  A strong showing from sets 30032, 7737, and some sort of helicopter that looks Creatorish but might be a Happy Meal promo.  Speaking of Mickey D's, Nick's promo head makes a creepy appearance.


LEGO Finds - 2015 Week 2

I was just about to go home disappointed when I spied one last box that looked promising.  I dug down and saw a system size Mega Blok.  Digging further (and releasing most of the box's contents) revealed a whole smattering of Mega Block, AS WELL AS plenty of LEGO pieces.  It would have been well worth it except that every last piece looks as if a lemur taste tested them all.  Or a 4 year old child, whatever.  Death by a thousand tiny little bite marks.  Well, some might make good internal support material, others are going into the kids bin.  The Duplo trailer was a neat find though.


LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 52

Yeah, last finds post for the year!  A decent one too.  Yes, I took the busted pieces including a black motorcycle, two plates, and an empty sprue.  It's all LEGO!  Better finds were the Tiny Turbos road/case, several Hero Factory joints and the Pearl Gold C3P0 (missing an arm).  He'll be a great addition to my R2-D2.


LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 51

Big interesting haul this week.  Most of (but not nearly all of) Big Bentley DUPLO set.  All of (except the Zamor Spheres) two older Hero Factory models, Jetbug and Corroder.




LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 49

I was pretty excited to find another tub lid.  You'd think it would be pointless but I've collected tubless lids and lidless tubs only to pair them up later.  Things got more exciting when I found the matching tub, right away.


LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 48

This week I learned that K'nex makes DUPLO sized pieces.  I left those but I did find some more Bionicle parts.  These things are everywhere.  I couldn't figure out what set this one came from but it looks a little like a perched bird to me.


LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 47

Due to a change in schedules, LEGO Finds will now occupy Friday for a while.  At least until I start making some online orders again.  This week I found nothing in the usual haunts but during her walk Mrs. DagsBricks found this by the side of the road.  Seems about right.


LEGO Finds - Calendar Week 45

A nice little haul of Bionicle thingymajigs.  Headless minifigs, a few system parts and more Chima cards (not pictured, obviously).  The funny thing about this lot is that I was just thinking how I'd like a mini R2-D2.  I've passed dozens through my fingers but never kept one.  Then this guy shows up.  Sweet.
