It has been a while since I did a post update on my Market Street but I have finally got the time to write about part 3 of my Bricklink project. You can read the previous update here.
This time around I have managed to get all my needed pieces in just two orders which has kept the postage really low! I discovered the LEGO Bricks and Pieces website where I managed to get most of my bricks like 72 1x4 dark blue bricks which only cost £13.49. The thing which I like about ordering from Bricks and Pieces is that the postage is only £2 and all pieces are in new condition. It also saves time because although some pieces may be cheaper on Bricklink, it is easier and saves time and postage with just doing one order from Bricks and Pieces with one postage cost. All together the Bricks and Pieces order came to £19.59 including postage.
My second order which was from eBay only consisted of 6 1x1 dark blue bricks because Bricks and Pieces had them 'Out of Stock'.
All together the total parts cost for this section of my project is £18.88 with a very small postage cost of just £2.19! This makes the total cost £21.07 for this section. So far the project as a whole has cost me £62.32 including postage.
From now on my project is going to get expensive with two white hoses needed which cost about £8 each and a door which costs around £5. You can see images of the project so far below:
Images of LEGO Jurassic World Raptor Escape (75920) have been revealed. The set comes with 394 pieces and comes with Vet and Barry minifigures along with two Velociraptors Charlie and Echo. The price is to be £39.99.
BrickFanatics have confirmed that The Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies Blu-Ray edition with LEGO will be released in the UK. The edition comes with not one but two minifigures - Bard the Bowman and Bain minifigure. Bard the Bowman was previously available as an SDCC exclusive and Battle of Five Armies LEGO sets. The Bain minifigure has never been available anywhere else apart from this Blu-Ray special edition.
The special edition Blu-Ray will be an exclusive to Sainsbury's supermarkt and available to buy on 20th April.

I went to my local LEGO store yesterday and came across a really cool new product which was being sold, 853456 Upscaled mug. It is a plastic, blue drinking cup which is ten times the size of a minifigure cup. It is currently being sold for £8.49 and I couldn't resist so bought one for myself.
I am surprised to see the colour for the mug is blue as blue mugs are not as common as the red or yellow ones. It has the LEGO logo on the inside bottom just like the minifigure ones. I don't think the mug itself holds much liquid but it is still a great item for any LEGO fan! It is also available in Transparent purple but there were not any of them at my local LEGO store. In my opinion, I would recommend this mug and if you really want one I would go to your nearest LEGO store to get one asap because they are currently sold out online. You can view the product on S@H here.
I have taken some more of my own photos of the mug below:
Finally all my pieces have arrived for the first two sections of my Market Street project. I ordered my pieces from Bricklink, Ebay, LEGO Pick A Brick and LEGO Bricks and Pieces - which ever way was cheapest for each needed piece. I was surprised by how many of the pieces I had myself so the cost has been reduced by using my own pieces first. I have tried my best to keep to my guidelines but I did have two orders which came from outside the UK. I had to acquire the pale blue female torso from America which I got for £2.65 plus £3.80 postage which is a good price compared to the £7+ on Bricklink. I managed to find the rest of the minifigure parts in my own collection.
I made a mistake with the arches by accidentally purchasing five dark blue 1x6x2 arches instead of five dark blue 1x8x2 arches. This set me back about £2.50. I found four of the arches I needed on Ebay for only £3 and I bought the fifth one from Denmark along with some other pieces for my own collection.
All together the total parts cost has come to £25.23 which I think is quite a low cost considering it is a retired set but so far the pieces used are common pieces. The total postage cost was a massive £16.02 which brings the grand total to £41.25 so far.
Next time I am going to try reducing the postage cost by reducing the number of sellers I buy from. I do agree that for this part everything has not been 100% organised therefore ordering the wrong size arches. I need to pay careful attention to the required pieces next time. The next section of Market Street will be the dark blue floor and I have already ordered the parts and I have only had to make two orders so the postage will be really low! I will do a post this weekend for the next section.
