I will be the first to admit that I don’t know diddly squat about Legos. I know that many young boys love playing with them, but I had no idea that grown men, women, and even little girls enjoy them too. So when I found myself at a yard sale filled with Legos, I took a chance at buying what looked cool — and of course what was unopened.
I still haven’t tackled everything that I purchased, but the sale from that one Lego minifigure paid for my entire purchase of approximately 40 minifigures, complete sets, and other Lego memorabilia.
Unfortunately, I could not identify 90% of the minifigures that I purchased, but there was one that I knew quite well thanks to my love of Pirates of the Caribbean. Imagine my surprise when I researched him on Terapeak and saw what he sold for. Who knew that the individual characters were worth so much?!? I certainly didn’t.
I decided that using the auction format would be the best way to list this item. I didn’t know what to expect, but I did make sure to start the auction at $29.99 to ensure that I would be happy if I only got one bid. Thankfully, I got more than that!
Over the next few weeks I will continue to list the remaining minifigures and sets that I purchased. There are a lot of goodies in that lot, and with the help of Terapeak and the official Lego website, I hope to identify the rest of them and get them listed ASAP.
If you’re reading this and know of any other good resources to help identify individual minifigures, please let me know in the comments section below.
