About this creation
You will never find a cheaper, or quicker way to build a city

i bought this old collection for $70!

after i removed all the non-lego elements,
this is what s left!
i had to wash them a little...

...ever felt like scrooge mc duck?!

i use soft soaps and a brush!
it s cool when sunny!

then comes the drying part...

i sorted all the collection first, but,
here is the panelising sorting....
first groups

6 groups;
unused and specialised parts
4x2 s
3x2 s
2x2 s s
8x2 s
and 1 wides!

once all is panelised, i put them in the pink bucket with the 'trims'!
the other containers you see are;
slopes and inverteds
specialised parts and props like chairs ect
plates 2+ wide
plates 1 wide
windows, windsheilds.

here you can see what i had in this collection,
i only added green base plates,
the rest is all old stuff!

my best advice to you...
recycle lego!
pass the word you re into recycling, and you re building an ecolo community!
for a world contest, for prototypes and concepts of living better!
for star wars stuff its hard to get it for free,
but, city is just something else,
especially for parents...

let it be known in your familly,
and surroundings, you ll be surprised!!!
...and, good luck in your mission!!!

Ahh...nothing better than buying legos at a garage sale! Inexpensive and just as good as the ones you already own! Good purchase... Attack!

Yep, buying used lego is economical and eco-friendly! I recently bought around six bionicle sets at a garage sale, and they were all in great condition. Bricklink, anyone?
