Building with LEGO
I've always felt that I need to do a LEGO project, but I never got around to it.
LEGO's are very expensive, so I started to look around for sources of cheap LEGO's. They don't seem to show up much at garage sales and thrift stores. People seem to keep them, and I guess they don't take up much room.
Ebay is like a box of chocolates; You never know what you are going to get.
Looking at new sets, the cheapest I found were:
6177 LEGO Basic Bricks Deluxe
This set contains 650 bricks for $25. It was available at my local LEGO store so I didn't have to pay shipping and got instant gratification. The picture above is of the set all put together.
5578 LEGO Basic Bricks Large
500 bricks for $20 looks good too.
