Buy Separate Lego Pieces

The LEGO brick has helped fuel imaginations worldwide with bigger and better sets released every year. Back in January 1958, when the LEGO brick we know and love today was perfected, sets consisted of just 100 pieces. The 1958 LEGO church was the largest set at 149 pieces(!)

The new LEGO Art World Map is the largest individual LEGO set ever made. It contains a whopping 11,695 pieces - that's 2,605 more pieces than the Titanic in second place and 4,154 more pieces than the Star Wars UCS Millennium Falcon.

Measuring over a metre long, Diagon Alley can actually be separated in to four individual buildings that can be configured in any order to make the alley of your dreams. The bright colours and varied shops ensure that this whole build will be interesting from start to finish!

The look of the 2022 LEGO Hulkbuster may be divisive amongst fans, but there's no denying that with 4049 pieces, it is the largest LEGO Marvel set that has ever been created.It stands at 52cm (21 inches) tall and is the biggest LEGO mech yet.

The newer set includes Darth Vader's TIE Advanced Fighter which has been updated with more pieces and more details have been added throughout the set. It also comes with updated minifigures using the latest printing techniques, and boast the record for the LEGO set with the most number of minifigures.

A honourable mention goes to the Ultimate Battle for CHIMA - which is technically the second largest LEGO set ever created - but it was never sold commercially. The 10,004 piece set was given away as the grand prize for a Legends of Chima competition in the July 2015 issue of LEGO Club Magazine and a smaller LEGO City set containing 5268 pieces was given away shortly afterward. These sets contained lots of smaller pre-existing sets, so it's still possible to gain the same collection commercially - just without the big box.

I circled the parts that are in almost every Lego collection in green. These are really, really common pieces and if you have more than 5,000 bricks (1 medium bin) you almost certainly own them. The pieces in yellow are a little more rare. All of them were in our collection (Approx. 30K bricks) although a few were not the exact color.

If you can't work around the missing bricks then you will have to add them to your collection. This can come by buying sets, or buying bricks. Sets are the best choice if you can get a lot of the pieces you want in one model, and it is still in stock or relatively cheap. An example might be the LEGO City Space Deep Space Rocket 60228 If your custom Lego build has a long cylinder this could be a great source of curved orange and white bricks.

ok so I've been contiplating buying some older sets recently, but I am wondering if Bricklink the pieces individually is a better way to go. I have never actually bought a set in individual pieces before, so I don't know what kind of advantage (if any) this presents. Obviously, it changes depending on the set. But let's say for reference purposes, you wanted to get The Imperial Trading Post. It goes for $225 or more, depending on new vs used and what not. But let's say you can get that set used for $240 with shipping. Do you think it is wiser to buy it via individual pieces? And if so, ballpark how much you think it will cost?

Then there's the set itself - depends if it's made of mostly common bricks and colors or has certain pieces that are hard to get - that alone will play a very major role in determining weather it's worth even trying.

And then there's the 3rd thing - How original do you want your end result to be? Do you need all the exact minifigures? do you want the box and instructions? Do you want all the original part molds if new ones were made in the meantime? Are you willing to substitute rare color pieces if they are hidden in the build?

If i was to bricklink the imperial trading post, I would make up a wanted list with just the rarer pieces, presumably the sails, white panels, baseplate and any printed pieces, and then see how obtainable they are. If you don't want to guess the rare pieces, this is where software such as "brickficiency" comes in handy, it will list the parts in order of shop inventory quantities.

I've never really looked. If you are looking to recreate the exact set, even if it is cheaper to buy the pieces you may find the time/effort too much. Personally I wouldn't try to recreate the exact set. If a piece isn't visible from outside but is expensive, replace it with something equivalent. If the piece is visible but visible, determine whether you wouldn't mind if it was slightly different color. When I created the Batrazor as a birthday party favor, I made two different color versions because I got 50-50 split on which looked better and ordering the two colors was easier than finding all the pieces in one color.

A quick look at the parts tells me it's mostly about the sails, baseplate and certain minifigs. If you are lucky to find these expensive parts from less than 3 separate sellers, you might just pull it off.

I have never BL'd a complete set, but I've purchased thousands of Classic Space parts, and am very close to having "just enough" parts to build any CS set ever released. Not cheap, but much less expensive than trying to buy all the sets individually and having tons of duplicated pieces!

I've been slowly piecing together of blacktron and mtron sets. But I have used my own new collection and old pieces. I can't tell too much fun the outside and I still get the set. But it was definitely cheaper than buying the actual sets. However shipping does eat up a lot of money.

I have yet to Bricklink a large system set, and have so far only been using it for CCBS parts and replacement pieces for battered pieces on my oldest Bionicle sets. I have though a few system LDD projects (RIP LDD) that I want to Bricklink/Pick A Brick/ Bricks and Piece someday; and I am a bit worried about what that would do to my wallet.

So I went to bricklink. I really love bricklink but replicating sets can be hard. The price I think is alright especially for non star wars sets as the pieces might be more accessible but you will probably have to buy form a vast amount of stores as most stores do not have all parts.

Also depends where you live - international shipping would mean paying over the odds for small orders would result in a much greater difference between the final costs compared to a one off purchase. And if you live a a small or relatively isolated country where domestic sellers and therefore pieces are limited it makes a big difference - even here in the UK, which isn't really that small, we can end up getting serious price hikes on rare pieces because only two or three people have them for sale - over in the states the same part might be half the price but shipping and customs means it isn't worth it either.

I generally check on somewhere like Brickset how many rare pieces are in the set (look to see how many sets it has been used in is very quick and easy) and then get some BL ballpark prices, that will normally tell you if you are going to struggle or not.

LEGO is an all-time favorite toy for kids and adults alike. It's an incredible creative outlet that allows you to build and create anything you can imagine. Having a huge and ever-growing LEGO collection can be quite overwhelming, especially when it comes to keeping it organized and in order. With so many pieces of different shapes, sizes, and colors, it can be difficult to figure out how best to store them. That's why we've put together this guide to help you store, sort, and display your LEGO bricks and sets in the most efficient and stylish way possible.

When sorting individual bricks into storage containers or bins it's important to think about color coding or shape coded bins so that each type of brick can be easily located. You may find that it's helpful to organize by brick size or shape for easy access later on when you need specific pieces for your next project. Additionally, labeling each container is also beneficial so that you won't forget what type of pieces are inside them at a later date.

Sorting bins are the ideal way to store LEGO bricks?️. Bins are also the most popular way because they come in a variety of sizes and shapes allowing you to easily categorize your bricks based on color, size, type and more. By using sorting bins, you can quickly find the exact pieces you need for your project without having to rummage through bags or boxes of mixed LEGO bricks. In addition to providing a convenient way to sort and store your LEGO pieces, sorting bins also help keep them organized and safe from getting lost or damaged.

Drawers are another great option for organizing LEGO bricks. You can purchase drawers that are specifically designed for storing LEGO pieces or use any existing drawers that you have around the house. Drawers allow for easy access when searching for the pieces needed for your project and make it easy to put away sets after they have been assembled. The advantage of drawers is that they can be stacked on top of each other in order to maximize space - perfect for those who have limited storage areas in their homes.

Buckets are great when it comes to large collections of LEGO bricks as they provide plenty of room for storing all kinds of sets and pieces?. Just like sorting bins, buckets can be used to organize by color, size and type so that you know exactly where everything is located. Buckets also come with secure lids which help keep dust off of your sets while keeping them safe from curious pets or children who may otherwise unintentionally damage them.

Great option for displaying LEGO sets in small spaces. By mounting the shelves on the wall, you can save floor space and display multiple sets with ease. These shelves can be customized to fit the size of your LEGO sets and feature open or closed storage to keep pieces from getting lost. Stackable bins are another great way to maximize space when displaying LEGO sets in small spaces. Bins allow you to store each set individually and make it easy to access individual pieces when needed. Additionally, they come in various sizes so they can fit any size set. 041b061a72
