Collecting a skip today exposed me to 5978 ,found a base plate 1st , then a few minifigs, it's hard to pick out\save lego while crying!!! It's absolutely filthy but not damaged ,gold coins in chest clean and skeleton in coffin. There was also castle parts but not much -I'm post photos when it's clean -3 plastic bottles full!

John, you need to start an Instagram account (or at least a thread here) of your lego skip finds!!

I'm disgusted and delighted with the find ,I do post when I find treasure (clean-up is hard), I don't get the chance to check these skis -it's only 2 so in reality ,i dread to think how much lego is being dumped every day

Coast guard boat looks good. Not sure why the hull sticks out though, maybe to stop it flipping over in the bath?

3 skips yielding more lego ,1st a friends box with unopened bags (a mall) - 1st and 2nd bags missing but 5 and a few loose parts .2nd was some minecraft and ninjago and a few other bits also unopened bags of m**a s**t blocks(pieces for a demolition video) .3rd bits from many themes, 2 SW minifigs and a motor- the guy told me his grandsons collection is valued at 34grand but judging by what I got and how much more was dumped I'd divide value by 5. The amount of Lego dumped every day nearly keeps me awake but it's just parents with no appreciation for the quality toy that has a fairly long useable life
