Well, one PaB (Pick-a-Brick wall, google it) contains from 3000 to 4000 1x1 round plates, and trans light-blue and trans dark-blue are pretty common in almost all the shops (PaB is a wall in LegoShops). So, here is some more info and here is the list of shops (maybe there is one in your city?)

If not, there must be a lot of your friends from Classic-Castle that live near PaB, and somebody can buy you one cup (bricks can be mixed in one cup, so you can take half light and half dark trans blue :)))

The price is (usually) 15 $ in USA and 16 e in Europe.

There is no PaB in or near my country, but I have a member of my lug that lives in Vienna, so we are getting cups regularly (a lot of 1x2 trans light blue tiles there at the moment. If you want, I can connect you with him, and he can send you one cup?

...there is some risk as you don't know me, but I am Ivan Angeli (google me:), and I am also TLG ambassador, so I hope that gives at least little trust... If you live across the ocean, I strongly recommend PaB from your continent, as content of one cup is quite heavy, and shipping is costly overseas.

So, the main question would be - in what city do you live? :)

There are lots of CC members here in the USA who would likely be able to help you out as well, RBC.

Siercon and Coral helped me with my first cup, and later, the whole gang from Historica :)
As you have guilds (lands or fractions:) here too, I bet people will be more then happy to help you :)

Hey guys,

I live in about 45 minutes from Augusta, GA (where the Masters Golf Tournament is held). I've only been to a Lego store twice in my life, and I've only bought 1 PAB cup!

The closest lego store is in Alanta, GA more than 4 hours away! :(

Unless someone could fill a PAB cup for me, it will probably be quite a long time 'til I get another one.
