Good Sets For Parts

Postby Mantisking » Fri Mar 30, 2012 5:39 pm

Spinning off of the topic, I figured I'd start a topic about regular Lego sets that provide useful parts for MFZ.

Here's what I've compiled so far:











I saw this one today, . While there are some "enh" parts in the set, it has four Travis Bricks, two Headlight bricks, and some other good parts. It also has 52 pieces and retails for $4.99 USD, which means it falls into the $0.10 per part range which is right in the sweet spot. Also, it's a seasonal item so, if it stays past Easter it'll probably get marked down.

Another one that's good, but not in my usual price range for recommendation, is the . It has all the usual fiddly bits we love but, the thing that knocked my socks off was the two Trans-Clear Headlight bricks. Also it's supposedly on sale this week at Target for $21.99 USD.

I saw the Bunny and Chick polybag in the NYC lego store and once I saw the Travis bricks...it was over.

I've been checking back and they're not on sale yet, hopefully within the next week.

I've found that some of the architecture series is phenomenal for getting a large chunk of tiles and cheese slopes. Including some in some hard to find colors. The for example has a boatload of sand green cheese slopes.

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit. Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

for those in the UK, you can get the .

If you use the code AFAPRILFREE, you get free shipping. I got two, but I am wondering if I should have got more. They are going for double that on bricklink.

Someone mentioned the Star Wars on the FB group. I'll be adding it to my list of good sets for MFZ.

Keep your eyes open for the . I picked it up today in the Five Below store near me. It has lots of orange pieces, slopes, clips, and other fun things.

It's on sale again? Grr. I placed an order just a few days ago, it and another small Atlantis set were available while I was futzing with Pick A Brick, but had disappeared when it came time to finalise my order.

One interesting set which I picked up for cheap here in Australia (though it may have been a pricing error) was the board game. It has eight Travis bricks, some red clips and slopes, , and thirty-three white 2x2 dome bricks.

I want to make some sort of terrain or objective out of the domes, but thus far nothing's come to mind ;)

I found some Alien Conquest sets on sale at ShopRite (a grocery store chain in the US).

(34 parts for $3 = $0.09 per)
(97 parts for $6 = $0.06 per)
They also had an even bigger set for $12 (also ~$0.06 per) but I gotta budget my monies. :)

There's a number of useful mobile-frame parts in there. Some highlights for me:
The trans-blue rounds are a variety I haven't seen before. I like to use trans rounds for denoting the various systems so this'll go to defense attachments.
The lever with yellow base is an easy comm attachment. Looks like an antenna and it's yellow. :)
