What's the best deal you've gotten with a Lego set? I bought a brand new, unopened Von Nebula on Amazon in September for $25, plus shipping.

I got Gold Leader's Y-wing for $30, including shipping, on Amazon about three weeks ago. It didn't have figures, but I didn't mind, I actually needed a ship for Jek Porkins and his astro droid that I got in the X-Wing, so I was very pleased.

$7 for Gali Mata about a year ago, without canister. Although I was trying to search for her with canister and instructions, the cheapest price for her with both was $30. She's in great condition, so I consider it a good deal, honestly, considering she was 10-years-old when I got her.

On the day the wall came down / They threw the locks onto the ground
And with glasses high / We raised a cry / For freedom had arrived
On the day the wall came down / The ship of fools had finally run aground
Promises lit up the night / Like paper doves in flight
I dreamed you had left my side / No warmth, not even pride remained
And even though you needed me / It was clear that I could not do a thing for you
Now life devalues day by day / As friends and neighbors turn away
And there's a change that even with regret / Cannot be undone
Now frontiers shift like desert sands / While nations wash their bloodied hands
Of loyalty, of history / In shades of grey
I woke to the sound of drums / The music played, the morning sun streamed in
I turned and I looked at you / And all but the bitter residues slipped away
slipped away...

Anything from garage sales. :PI once got a 99% complete Toy Story Trash Compactor for $2 at a garage sale (98% off since it normally sells for $50! :lol:)Other random garage sale finds: Vhisola and Ahkmou for $2 each, random Bohrok for $4 each, this set for $6 (no box but with all pieces and instructions), and this set for $8.Oh, and I also got a Ninjago Fire Temple (but minus minifigs and dragon) for $50 on eBay. :)

I got the Axalaria for twenty bucks, in perfect condition. I'd say that was the best deal I've ever gotten/ever will get.

$3 for a Lehrak at KB toys. Considering that it came with canister and wasn't from a garage sale, I would say that that was a pretty good deal, especially at retail.

I got a Bionicle lot off of Craigslist a couple of years ago; forty-five sets for $25 ( :biggrin:). One of the sets was a complete (most of the sets were complete) Exo-Toa, which equals to $1.80 for the Exo-Toa. It can't get much better than that, and it's probably the best deal I've gotten, possibly except for the fifty-plus pounds of parts I bought over the last couple weeks. :P

Well, back in the day when the Bohrok were waning, my local Wal-Mart at the time had a $2 per Bohrok sale, which I think is awesome.More recently, I bought all 6 original Toa Nuva, complete with everything, for $15.

One of the large, BIONICLE parts bins from TRU for $6 each. Wasn't a marked sale, it was just there. Pretty good, to me.I also got my Axalara for $60, rather than $80, which was awesome.

I got a $50 set for $12 once because the price tag said that by mistake and the cashier was a very kind person and decided to charge me that. ^_^~B~

Almost every Bionicle set I order off eBay are great deals. It's like a process: :P- I find a set/sets I begin to want/grail- I watch and watch for great deals.- I usually end up waiting at least a few months before getting it/them, and at a great deal too.That's the process for most sets I get. Here are some of the great deals I've gotten:- $15 all six Turaga, with everything (boxes, pieces, instructions, etc.)- $50 for all 6 Toa, all 6 Nuva, and all 6 Bohrok. All had pieces and canisters; only Toa Nuva had instructions.- $15 all Tohunga- $35 Bahrag (everything)- $10 Boxor (complete)And more. :P...But 2006 sets? That's another story. :P EDIT: But the best deal, I must say, is the Skopio XV-1 that was on clearance at my local Wal-Mart for $60!

About a year and a half ago, in late 2010, I got Lewa Mata, Panrahk, Tahu Nuva (with canister), Onua Nuva (with canister) and Gali Nuva for aprox. 5$ each. They were on display at a local toy store that has tons of old, overpriced Lego stuff and in good condition except Gali was missing her propellors and Onua had a slightly damaged foot.

Not a set, but all of these masks just arrived in the mail for only €4.50 (price for sending included).
