anyone got any good resources to buy bricks in bulk other than Brick Link? I want to start doing my own modulars and obviously trying to reduce price as much as possible.

I will vouch for Edgar as a resource, dude is top-notch and loaded with bricks! :clap:

Creation88, any MOCs in particular you are basing stuff off of? or custom builds you bought instructions for? curious to see what you have in mind!

i bought the alternate Tower Bridge MOC that i'm working on now.
i've been scanning online for some great modular MOCs and fell in love with these two (ironically they're both Chanel stores) https://www.brothers-brick.com/2018/02/15/chanel-crystal-house-glistens-lego-bricks/

[url]https://www.eurobricks.com/forum/index.php?/forums/topic/68491-moc-chanel™-store/[/url]
unfortunately i can't find instructions for either so i'll have to extrapolate if i go this route.
