That's an incredible find! Can't understand the mentality of someone who would put almost new Lego into a skip, but lucky for you they do I guess!
Makes you wonder how much Lego never gets found though.

Based on what I find and ,what I see that's rolled over and beyond even me, an awful lot!

Picked\rescued more of the precious today ,badly mangled so only a few of the bricks actually survived. On a scientific note the durability of it versus 10 ton and a loading shovel scraping it into the heap is pretty amazing! It was mostly ninjago and I pulled 1and a half minifigs out.

Is anyone buying any lego lately -in sets or loose ,or is imminent bulk order wetting the appetites? ,I've amassed 60euro but the cheap deals that I don't want are screaming at me to spend and the technic McLaren I want is saying maybe it'll get cheaper. Although there's enough unopened stuff to last an apocalypse

Haven't bought anything in a while but I was waiting for the Bricklink Designer Program to open, which it has done today! I've just pre-ordered the Great Fishing Boat, I really like the look of it and I supported it at the time it was first submitted to Lego Ideas. Looks like it's going to be second over the line for crowdfunding (first 5 over the line get produced) and it also looks like it'll be sold out in an hour's time at this rate!

I don't get this, lego asks ordinary joes for ideas, dismisses them if they don't make the cut, then gives them another go if they jump through the new hoop, I don't have a budget for this but if you were keeping tabs on Ideas then it's got a market

That's a lot of minifigs! Fire up the auld adverts.ie account John, you might make your LUGbulk payment back!

A homage to my job and the lucky finds of dumped lego,  I'm especially proud of landing legs as they lift truck off floor  ,all watched by the duplo overlords

Mixels assembled ,3 at front complete 2 at rear missing a talon and tail-5 pieces in all. I'm calling them a shower of mixels  or maybe a scavenge of parts! I hated them from the start but did buy them cheap as present fillers or S.S.(secret santa), I got one as a present and have one still bagged for boulder parts
