Project 10179: 27%

A couple of updates on my efforts to collect the pieces necessary to build the monstrosity that is LEGO's Ultimate Collector Edition of the Millennium Falcon. I now have a total of 1454 pieces, which puts at just over a quarter of the way to my goal. I've started picking up a little speed lately, due to some decent sales on eBay. Part of my goal with this project is to get all the pieces I can as cheaply as possible by buying and selling used Legos via Craigslist and eBay. Also, we're heading into warmer weather, so that means yard sale season! I can usually make a little money this time of year, and there's always the occasional Lego set to be found in the neighborhoods.

In slightly related news, I closed down my BrickLink store. I continue to use BrickLink as a buyer to procure the pieces I need, but selling was just a little too time consuming for me personally. It took forever for me to list any inventory that wasn't a part of a set. I find it much easier to sell bulk lots of Lego on eBay. That probably makes me a bit lazy, but oh well. However, having a BrickLink store for a little over a year gave me a new respect for the BL store owners that have been around for a while. I'm certainly glad those guys are out there and continuing to put inventory up. Thanks to you all!
