What did you get at Brickfest?

Discussion and planning of large-scale Castle Themed displays and events

Postby Remyth » Sun Apr 08, 2007 8:14 am

Well, I got to thinking, and I remembered about a great find I had, and i was wondering if anyone else got a great deal on something at the Brick Bazaar.

My Find:
A bag of 4 Ninjas, 3 Shogun, and 3 Vikings for $10.00

Has anyone else something similar?

Now that is a fun question. In fact, I think it deserves its own thread.

I got 51 of the gold dragon heads for five dollars, a red crate (also for five bucks, but I couldn't pass it up :roll:), and I traded for one of these.

PS. I also picked up one of these, still in the bag, for 3 dollars.

I have no idea what you are trying to say here. This thread is for talking about what you picked up at Brickfest. Let's keep it that way.

I got a huge bag of old dark grey 1x2's, quite a few old dark grey 1x10's, a lot of 1x8 blue tiles, all of which are being put to immediate use. I got a few figures including Shadow Knights and Black Falcons. There were a lot of other random pieces I bought - A couple chicken legs, flags, cheese wedges, tiles, and more!

That's just the bazaar, of course. :wink:

I picked up some rare and hard to find pieces from Jon Palmer, more Brickarms (with Spyrius there in the picture), and other fantastic castle sets for bargain prices. My sets included 6008, 6009 x2, 1480, 6020, 1463, 6057, and 6835 for castle sets. I also picked up others for nostalgia: 6814, 6115, 6125, and 6155.

In addition, I totally lucked out at the LEGO store, and got my Cafe Corner for a screamin' deal. I picked up the Viking Fortress and the more recent Castle for half off. :D

Well, since other people are telling of their S&D, I will too.

I got the Viking Ship ($25), the new Slave 1 ($25), the new AT-ST ($10), and a Droid Battle Pack ($5).

What a great topic!

Brick Bazaar; I got 2 shadow knights full sets of barding and 2 horses, Misc. Batman figs, some black torso figs to go with my Brickarms weapons, some Belville for my daughter, and Bionicle for my son, and a few Viking figs, and other misc. parts.

Lego store; I was in the back of the line, so I missed the good S&D :^( I did get 5 cups of great PaB including dark red window grating, 1x4 old dark grey, and a cup full of old light grey 1x2 plates! WooHoo!

BTW: I went back to the Lego store Friday night and found all the extra PaB and the minfig bar stuff STILL OUT AND FOR SALE AT BRICKFEST PRICES! I got a total of 45 red "emporer" torsos and green oriental torsos (I don't know the name but they will make great Mongols!)

Overall I got less stuff than NWBC '06, but I was very happy with it.

Has it really been a week?

Well, first of all Remyth snagged me the second to last Cafe Corner, which was a SUPER screamin' deal! Then I ended up with 7.5 PaB cups with old dk grey 1x4 bricks, a TON of 1x2 old Grey tiles, a whole heck of a lot of 1x1 old dk rey plates, 6 bags of very light grey 1x1 plates (90 per bag), a S&D ultimate AT-ST ($35), a few misc poly bags with some cool castle/fig parts, and a large white box, which ended up being a LOT of old dk grey 9v track, including a switch for like $12!

The bazzar was cool too, I ended up trading some of my fleshies for a yellow Han (Skiff), 6 of http://www.bricklink.com/catalogItemPic.asp?M=cas293these%20guys (complete) and one of these, (gotta love those copper helms!!!) and some other various parts.
I also ended up with some very good deals on some misc parts bags and an old set or two.

BTW Josh, that fig is awsome, I'll have to post a pic soon!

I got a bunch of BURPS for $1 each from Bob Kojima, plus a few baseplates and two minifigs.

I got some Ice Planet 2002 sets from Paul Hetherington (but discovered I'm missing the Celestial Sled, so I'm not IP 2002 complete :-(

At the LEGO Store experience, I got a scratch and dent Duplo pirate ship (the smaller of the two ships), the fire hovercraft, the earlier creator house set (with the 1x4x3 black window frames), and the big Auquaraiders base. Other purchases were 3 PAB cups, the two smaller Duplo pirate sets, 2 copies of the Aquaraiders shipwreck set, and a couple other things.

From the auction I came away with 2 red and 2 yellow 48x48 baseplates.

I also picked up some engraved torsos and an engraves 2x4x3 brick.

I probably forgot another find or two.
