    Hi,

    I just started my own LEGO collection.
    from your opinion, purchasing a LEGO in Singapore is better thru ONLINE store or shops (toyshunt, simplytoys)?
    Thank you

  2. OCK says:

    I love the minifig sets! Never get the older community set…maybe i shld get this one

  3. wee chong says:

    it will be great if singapore were to sell 9348 and 9349 sets.

  4. wee chong says:

    i also notice that these 2 sets include more female minifig.

  5. amodularlife says:

    @OCK: Yeah, I prefer the new minifig collections compared to the previous one.

    @Wee Chong: More female fig is always welcome! There is always Borderlinx UK shipping if SG doesn’t bring in the sets, but I think there would be shops that’ll bring in the sets. Just have to be patient. 🙂

    @Lemsan: I would recommend a mix of both… international online shopping (online stores, bricklink or ebay) for larger sets/sets no longer brought in by LEGO SG and local stores for the smaller sets (where the shipping cost would far outweigh the cheaper set price from overseas.

    Also depends on whether you are picky about box condition… shipping can be tough on the boxes, plus you also take the risk of non-delivery and damaged items.

    Just do a simple cost-benefit analysis before you click on the ‘buy’ button. Have fun shopping!

    Hi, me again. just another quick one. I saw simplytoys and toyshunt selling the odd blocks. like 9 cents for 1 gram of blocks. worth the $$$? sorry for all these questions.
    i m a LEGO noob

  7. amodularlife says:

    I’ve to confess, never did a comparison for those. I think the blocks are ok for the rare colors, not for the common ones. Try comparing to Bricklink to see if cheaper. You planning for a MOC already?

  8. Lemsan says:

    yes, MOC is next for me. 🙂
    just want to have some comments on getting the stuff here and there. got to be money wise.
    LEGO is expensive and that is good news. because you pay for quality.
    but i am hesistant about online purchases still.

    I was fascinated about the mechas from some Japanese website. built with LEGO. and I saw someone built a metal gear rex with LEGO. argh!!! I wish to make one too.

    my next purchase should be a brick remover.
    a handy tool for every LEGO fans, i supposed.
    i thought it was a LEGO ladder when i first saw it at my mum-in-law’s house.
    hahaha

    thanks for the advice and may the force be with you.
