NEW BRICKPICKER MEMBER FAQs & INVESTMENT QUESTIONS

466 posts in this topic

Hello. I'm relatively new to the site and my family and I are really into searching out great deals on Legos. My brother are fairly knowlegable about the sets and the history of Lego, but we're new to the wheeling and dealing aspect of the market. What would you suggest to a beginner in the Lego investing field? How can we start to build our inventory and make a bit of profit along the way?

 

Thanks,

        Michael

Hi Michael and welcome to the site. if you are looking to build your inventory then I suggest you follow the daily deals thread. There are a few good sales right now (Toys R Us, Target) and everything gets updated every few hours. Also there are tons on articles to cover from buying to storage to selling/collecting, I would strongly recommend you go thru those, they helped my a lot.. Good luck

Oh dear. Interesting method of getting to the required number of posts. The post requirement is made to make members get a feel of how you "roll" so to speak, and whether or not they feel comfortable working with you in the case of a trade. Repeated posts in the introduction forum won't get you very far. I suggest responding to other exhisting topics, that will give members a better idea of who you are, and quite possibly, make them more willing to trade with you.

That was 20!

 

That was awful!  Comicblast was 100% correct.  I don't put a limit in there for people to just spam the hello section.  Maybe I will raise it 100.

I'm sorry it is understood, I was happy about the trading section and then I got a little impatient.

 

This is a great site. And I will try to be an asset rather than *******. 

 

edit:

 

aha that was a really bad word..

Hi,

Why are some sets worth more used?

44009 for example.

Listings were incorrect.  I fixed it.  Thanks.  Let us know if see any other possible issues.

Hi,

Ballpark, what is the price per lb someone should be paying for used lego?

Here is a good thread to look at since it talks about bulk, used Lego buying. Link.

If you want to find a good price for a specific lot, click here. After you scroll down you will see place where you can enter the theme(s), color(s), and the minimum price of a lot. It will then give you the average price people pay based off of eBay listings. I hope that helped! If you have anymore questions please ask.

No selling. Just trading. Keep it in the forum for trading. Maybe just add [AUS] to the title.

The classifieds will be here soon

Hello,

I just joined this website and spent a few evenings trying to learn everything possible about it.

I am very interested in LEGO investing and reselling. I purchased my first sets yesterday.

I have 3 used sets in excellent condition that I have been able to research the applicable number.

But, 1 set I cannot locate the identification number. If I post the picture, would anyone be interested in helping me?
