It's not really a set, but I just found this

http://www.ebay.com/itm/270975696018?ss ... 723wt_1163

And promptly ordered one after scanning through the picture.

There looks like there's a -lot- of super useful frame parts in that mix, and for only $8 it's a hell of a deal.

I'm posting this here because there were more of them for sale, figured i'd share the love.


I'll post back in a couple of days once i get it in and validate or invalidate the usefulness of what I actually recieve. It is eBay after all :P

So I hit the FLLS the other night because I had stopped in the day before -- I'm really lucky in that I have one a little over a mile from the house -- and grabbed a re-fill big cup from the PaB Wall. A random -- well, picked for effect -- cross-section of the contents of my cup consists of the following. Maybe a dozen , a ton of (some loose, some forming a helix in the center of the cup with) , three stacks of in Trans-Light Blue, two stacks in Trans-Neon Green, three stacks of in Trans-Clear, and a bunch of in Trans-Red to fill in the empty spaces. Oh, did I mention the stack of and matching stack of ?

So there are good things on the PaB Wall. You just have to be patient.

Quick update on that ebay auction. Got the bag in, and there's definately some interesting pieces in here, but it's too much of a mix and not enough of any one brick to really be useful IMHO.

Bricklink still seems like the way to go.

Oddly enough, it looks like one of the Lord of the Rings sets has some great parts for MFZ. has lots of clips, hinges, click hinges, and a that I think will see a lot of use. It's also $19.99 USD for 200+ parts, so it's in the sweet spot for Price/Piece.

The Pick A Brick at my local Lego store had some good stuff so I got a small cup for $8.

About half the cup is filled with these: Image
Also picked up a bunch of these: Image
Some of these (both ends): Image
A bunch of lime green 1x2 SNOT
Some transparent purple and green 1x1 cylinders and some neat aquamarine color transparent 2x2 cylinders
Hand full of bright orange 1x1 round studs
I dunno.. some other stuff I crammed in there =) The main reason was for the 1x1 clips

Actually, I thought the flowerpot/tub/thing from that set could work quite nicely as the base for a station. I haven't got any further with the plan than that, but I still think it has potential.

Oh I'm sure there are plenty of ppl who find the other parts useful and the price per piece is actually worth it. Just a personal decision for me.

So im getting ready to head to the Lego store here - other than the PAB wall - is there any good set I should keep an eye out for? I still need a couple frames built, and I havent even started on stations and terrain! :shock:

Suggestions are definitely welcome
