Nothing like a thrift store score!!

Earlier this week I wasn't feeling so good so I took the day off and slept.  About mid-day I was feeling better and decided to go out and pick something up for lunch.  While out I just had this feeling I should stop into my local Value Village and ended up scoring 3 huge bags of random Legos!

Well they were mostly Legos.  In lots like this there are always a few odds and ends throw in.  If you look close you might also see the Shell logo on pieces.  Plus I could see a nice assortment of larger base pieces.  

 After looking through the bags I decided that there were at least two different Shell gas station sets represented, but incomplete.  But I noticed a lot of the blocks looked old.  I mean really old. They were worn and dirty, very well played with, but the lettering looked different.

And then I found this mixed in with the more modern bricks.

This piece helped me determine that I have a large portion of the 1958 Lego Esso Service Station set.

That's pretty incredible.  Mixed in with the modern bricks both Lego, MegaBlok, and others was a real classic.  In the bag there were also a mix of old windows and a bunch of old tires from the 1960's.  I'm glad I had a feeling.

Capt America Civil War Polybag

As luck would have it I stopped into my local Toys R Us to see if they had any new polybags and they did.  I managed to snag one of these Captain America's Motorcycle bags.  The nice thing is it was priced the same as a blind minifigure bag and you get a neat motorcycle with side card.

I'm not sure, but I'm don't believe the minifigure is unique to this set.  It looks a lot like the one you get in the Airport Battle set, 76051, but you don't have to shell out the major dinero for it.

The cycle is a nice minibuild and it even has a place for Cap's shield.

Minifigure Spotlight Disney's Buzz Lightyear

Out of all the Disney minifigures this is the one I wanted the most.  Oddly enough it was one of the toughest for me to find.  But Buzz is easy to pick out of a box with the backpack and wings being all one piece. To infinity and beyond!!
