Nice work MK. That's a lot of pieces for not much output.

I recently posted to FB what I think is a steal which was 3 boxes of the Kre-O Battleship Land Assault for $7 apiece, down from $19.95.

Picked up the Fury Class Sith Intercepter on clearence for 59.98 at target.

Then, for whatever reason the Jedi Defender Cruiser was tucked away in the back, i don't think it was supposed to be there because there wasn't a price sticker on it, but i told them at the register that it was in the clearence section, they bought it because the box was a little scuffed. Got it for the same price... SCORE!

Got a gift card for Christmas for $10, so I filled two small cups at the Downtown Disney PAB wall this week for $6.29 after tax. Haven't counted the pieces up yet, but they had a lot of nice purple and pink pieces, travis bricks, and plate click hinges (as well as some 1x1 round tiles).

Edit: 1803 pieces between both cups. And the clerk at the wall seemed rather interested in the whole concept of MFZ (and was incredibly helpful), so here's hoping for another MoF0 down in Florida :)

2.5lbs for $25. Two overstuffed 64oz/1.89l containers, very lightly used. A high ratio of small, fiddly bits (although they appear to have sunk to the bottom looking at the pic now). Based on the identifiable pieces of sets, I'm guessing circa 2008-2010. There was also a motor (58120c01) and remote (58122c01), but no sensor. This is why I thrift! :D

Stopped by my local Lego Store to scope out the PaB wall and found two copies of set marked down to $16US ea due to smashed boxes. When opened, all parts were good, instructions were a little bent but no worse than some I've seen in uncrushed boxes. Lesson: always check the markdown shelf.

I picked up the set for $9.99 last night. It has 317 pieces, so the PpP was $0.03.

Just got #8096 Emperor Palpatine's Shuttle - MSRP $70 - Got it for $30 =)

On a roll!

Don't know if this one has minifigs or not; weren't shown in the picture. It was an opened box... so a bit of a gamble on this one.
