Advice on large (100 lbs) used Legos set
I bought a large set of about 100 lbs of Legos that has instructions for about 50+ sets.
I'm looking for some advice into how to go about this. There is 1 set that I want to keep, the others I just want to sell to get my money back and hopefully the set I keep I get it for free...
I figure I would separate everything by color / type of pieces and then following the instructions I would pick out the pieces for each set and put them in zip loc bags. I don't have the boxes, only instructions.
I guess my next question would be whether I put the sets together, take pictures and sell them or just keep them in zip loc bags and sell them that way. I thought in order to maximize the return on my money I would put the sets together and be able to take better pictures than just a simple bag...
I'm very particular in what I like to build (trains, large sets) so this will definitively introduce me to other sets I may have not consider putting together before and who knows, maybe I'll keep some more ;)
Has anyone here done something like this before? Any advice...
And yes... Looking at 2 big tubs has me wondering why did I do this in the first place, but oh well.. what's done its done.... I like puzzles... I like putting them together... I understand this will be a HUGE undertaking...
