Some guy asked me to name my price for my 20 year old Lego thats in a few bif buscuit tins in the attic. Is old Lego worth cash ? I thought it had to have its original packaging and all that other stuff.

/me wonders maybe is it a fetish thing

I'm not sure, but if you make some serious wedge I'll be crying into my coffee over the half-a-ton I gave away to charity 2 years ago!

Lego have brought out limited edition runs in the past, but I doubt this guy is an actual collector. As you mentioned, collectors would want the packaging that it came in.

I suspect he probably just wants to save a few bob over buying the stuff new. That's one of Lego's coolest features- the fact that the basic components are totally unchanged over the years.

Look it up in the Argos catalogue, knock a fiver off the equivalent new price and he'll probably pay it.

Or, failing that, dig it out of the attic and get building! Your desk would look much cooler with a few lego pen holders/phone stands/book ends etc. etc.

[edit] Or maybe he's a White Stripes fan and wants to make himself a video [/edit]

I have a chest full of it, from the early plain bricks(my first ever lego - I was about 3) to technic - got the big red car with the suspension and gear box etc. for christmas a few years back.

Good mstuff

I wouldn't dream of selling it. I intend to pass ti on to my kids when they're old enough.

Ebay doesn't seem to rate the stuff highly at all, so this guy must be mad !

hehe, true

I should be messing about with a Lego mindstorms kit in college this year or next.
Once the essential tech bit is out of the way, bring on the defensive lasers, the aeriels and the cokpit with ejector seat and full-featured controls.....
Oh, and rocket boosters....

Now I'm wishing I hadn't given most of my lego to my little bro... Some of the pre '80s sets (complete of course) have to be worth a bit eventually.

Don't know if it's still around. I used to be a member of it when I was young (20 years ago). At least I'm fairly sure I was in it.

Am I getting mixed up with the Beano fan club

I was in the Lego Club + Beano. I never joined the Dandy one though, the Beano was way better!!
