My little Lego town coming along nicely.

Picture compression kinda sucks. But the led lights are great overall. I went with a cheap amazon listing vs doing the specific per building ones that are out there.

Ok so my 5 year old is getting into legos, and we have 5 or so scenes ranging from Toy Story to Frozen, along with ~2000 pieces from the yellow box building sets. A question for anyone in a similar situation.....how are you storing these? We have a few different bins that we've moved through to fit them all, but digging through to build is a bit of a pain in the ass. Sometimes we just want to separate by color, sometimes it's from the book, sometimes it's all imagination. Do you store them by set, color, or just everything in one bin? Keeping them built/displayed is not an option.

Thanks.

I have an old library card catalog that I store mine in....but I understand something that size isn't for everyone.

Been making some MOCs in LDD recently, and I've put them up on Ideas in case anybody here fancies supporting. :)

Anybody here pick up the Lego NES set? http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200 ... 2Bnintendo

Seems like a lot of people bought to resell, but they produced more than a lot of people anticipated.

i'm utterly confused at some of the people that sell on ebay... looks like after shipping and taxes the set comes out to $245 and there is someone selling it for $289.99 w/ free shipping... thats like $0 profit, and potentially a loss after shipping... i must be missing something...

Breaking even could still be a net gain if done right. You get a bonus set with it you can sell. You earn LEGO points you can use to buy a smaller set and sell. You can buy with a rewards credit card to get cash back. Quickly your break even sale can lead to some profit. If you wanted.
