Need Black Pieces, Please Help!

Hello all,

Me and 6 other friends are doing an extra credit school project for next year, and it requires TONS of black pieces. (think dark and evil-ish creation) I have the smallest amount of black pieces that you could ever see (a couple small drawers), and really need some. My dad isn't extremely happy with me buying more Lego pieces, and wants me to find an alternate way to get them. As this is a community, I thought I would ask here, if anyone have any black pieces that they can spare? (lots of bricks, greeble pieces, plates, slopes, etc)

Can you help?


Thank you whoever can, I am forever thankful! :) And I understand that this is a bad time, right in the middle of the CCCXI, so sorry about that. :?

BTW, as some people have stated that they want to trade, that would still be using money to ship the pieces, and my dad doesn't want me spending a penny on lego pieces for a while. :cry: So trading is a maybe at most, donation or borrowing would be best, thanks. I will do my best of you want to trade, it would just be harder though. :?

I can certainly help. I have 1,000s of un-used black pieces that need a new home, but I would want something in exchange. PM with your needs. :)

PM inbound. But I might need to clarify, trading would be harder. I will do my best though. Thread updated.

For those looking to trade, since mpoh98 doesn't want to have to spend any money, maybe if you trade with him, you can offer to pick up the shipping tab in exchange for more parts from him.

For example, if you would normally trade 100 black parts for 100 brown parts, with each person paying their own shipping, maybe you can ask to trade 100 black parts for 200 brown parts, and pay shipping on both packages.

Just an idea. :)

AK_Brickster is correct, since I can't pay for shipping, you can ask for a bit more, but only a little. :wink:

Donations/borrowing would be the best, ask I probably would run out of pieces to trade.

If you are wanting to "borrow" bricks, how will you pay for shipping to your place and return shipping if you are not allowed to spend any money?

Also, do you plan on keeping borrowed bricks separate from your current bricks? Just curious! :)

I don't think I can pay the shipping to me, but I can definitely pay the shipping back, since you won't be getting them back till after Brickworld 2014. :)

Well, if you send borrowed bricks, either you count them and place a sheet with it saying how many pieces you have of whatever kind, or I will do it. Then, when we break it apart, I will count those pieces back out and send them back. Of course, I might get some of your pieces, and you might get some of mine, but I would use it in a general area, and take it out of that area. Hope that is clear. :)
