I really enjoyed it. And although people often say Lego is expensive I think for what you actually get it’s not too bad. This was £20 on Amazon, it’s got three bags with shit loads of bits in and takes a good while to build. We did the Rey speeder and now this. I think I’m gonna just pick up the odd small speeder/vehicle set and build them!

Everythings expensive these days! For what you get it's not to bad really. Both my kids love Lego and I think it's the best value toy because they play with it over and over.

Well, I learnt a massive lesson about lego over the past week.

I have started to buy and build the modular buildings. I was in the Brighton lego store about 3/4 weeks ago and noticed brick bank was on its way out. They had loads, and I didn’t have the spare dough so I left it there.

Can’t get one for less than £100 over rrp now. I had no idea they would go so quickly and sell out so quickly.

So a friend of mine spots one on Facebook. It’s used but one of a number of modular buildings this guy is selling. He wants £100 for the set and instructions, which seems fair. I ask all the pertinent questions, is it complete, is it real, is it played with, are all the mini figures there, are any bricks discoloured and so on and so on.

All the answers come back good. He sends me some pictures of his collection, all built and nicely displayed. Only built once, displayed behind plastic to stop dust, never played with and I even have found the box. So down to his house I go.

The sets all bagged up and ready to go. He’s even gone through the inventory and checked it the day before, so I pay him the money and off I go.

That night I started sorting it. I separated all the colours out and immediately bells start ringing as there is clearly some lego that is not genuine in there. Once I had separated the colours I decided that I would go through all the pieces and see what was what. I have a magnifying glass, a tiny hand held microscope and a strong led light.

I probably sorted through the first 100 pieces and at least 15% were fake. Not all the same fakes either. I didn’t really know how to spot fake lego. An hour with that set was an education. Luckily, I have a lot of real spare pieces to reference and I quickly learnt how easy a fake would be to spot.

I sent the seller a pretty terse message and to be fair, he quickly got back to me and offered a refund. He apologised and played it dumb but it was pretty obvious he was lying when he said he had disassembled the set and packed it straight away. It was either missing a lot of pieces or, what’s more likely, got broken down into a container with a lot of mixed lego and then the set was just made up from the inventory.

The moral of the story is don’t buy second hand lego, and if you do, check it before you take it.

Now, if anyone sees a brick bank for sale for rrp or close (129.99), can you tap me up please.
WANTED: The following speederbikes. I would like them boxed but open and complete. I need:

Meccano stickered bike
Pbp stickered bilogo
Danish stickered bilogo
Special offer uk bilogo

I was so intrigued I googled it and understand now it is actually a "bank" building. Thought it was like a collection of rare pieces but its actually looks a complex build.
