Re: Best way to sell a collection?

So this means that you aren't selling everything and entering a dark age? I'm definitely NOT going into a dark age! I think it's a lot more like what SpaceViking is describing - the money from my collection can help my family reach goals and start new projects. In some ways, that's the BEST outcome...

Re: Best way to sell a collection?

As I've been thinking more about this - and your great advice so far - I've found it humorous how much I'm hemming and hawing over how to sell.

Best way to sell a collection?

In your expert opinion, what's the smartest way to sell off an AFOL collection? Should I put it al...

Hulk punches Thor Here's a build of my favorite moment from Avengers, in which Hulk punches Thor for no reason at all after working together to take down a Leviathan. https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/344/18074246683_2342a256f9_z.jpg final1 by agrahmann , on Flickr https://c1.staticflickr.com/1/258/185...

Re: 71016 LEGO Simpsons The Kwik-E-Mart

I spent so much time looking over and building my micro-version for the contest last year, I was convinced for a second that this one was a blown up version of mine. I'm an idiot.

Re: [Contest] Winter Village Market Vendors Needed!

Any chance we could implement a more private polling system for voting on contests here at toysnbricks? I'd love to see who voted for what at the end, but watching the votes tally up live is nerve-wracking. :)

By the way, you know that I LOVE the contests here, and the whole site!!

I'm almost sure that, yes, it is glued. I'd keep it myself for the parts if it wasn't, but in the glued state it's good only for display.

Re: Friends Store Display FS

I also did some research online and found that they SHOULD be removed by the vendor, who just destroys them. Got that idea from some people selling theirs on eBay. Maybe some employee rescued this one.
