The wonderful package greeted my arrival home after a long day at work Friday afternoon. BrickDog and I quickly set upon it and tore into the contents with much fervor!
BrickDog can't wait to see what's inside!
After many hours of study (much to my wife's chagrin on a Friday night, lol) we were able to pick out some treasures to keep.
We started out with the group of Bull Knights donated by Hoboman, because we didn't have any of them yet. Despite them not being one of my favorite factions, it's hard to pass up a chance to add to the diversity of the kingdom!
We then selected some new weaponry, a powerful wizard, a couple of cloaks, and the brown walls (for which I have a great idea to use them for
I also selected a door, a couple of awesome light bricks, and about half of the orc swords for my small contingent of trolls.
Finally, we took in the 4 yellowed horses for my 6 and 4 year old neices, who are just starting their Lego collection and won't notice the discoloration a bit
In exchange for the wonderful treasures we selected, we elected to deposit:
6 wall sections and 6 turrets for a dark fortress, 4 gray wall sections, Some mining blades, 4 black lances with multiple flag colors, A troll banner, A crocodile to guard a moat, some flames, horse hitchings, stairs, 2 sets of mint condition coins, a cauldron, some fancy green armor, a rare light gray helmet (my only one!) a brown cape, some arches, a Black Falcon's Soldier, and some various other parts.
In addition, we added a batallion of imperial guards and a few up-to-no-gooders
And some base plates to build on, including a river for whoever chooses to take the two rowboats that are amongst the current contents.
Lastly, AK_brickster said a sad farewell to one of his centaur brethren. Safe travels, old friend!
With that, the container was stuffed. With a little extra effort, it snapped shut and was ready to be sent off to the next lucky recipient!
Thanks to everyone for their contributions, and I hope that the next person has as much fun as I did going through everything!
