Today, tucked away in a shelf in a little-visited part of a toy store, I found Lego set #8002 – the “Destroyer Droid”. The box was partially crushed, and opened, but all the little packets of pieces seemed to be in place. On enquiry, I was told that the set was priced at $29.00US. I asked if, given the condition of the box, I might get a discount and a decent 20% was quickly offered. I am now the proud owner of this fabulous model. Over five hundred pieces for only twenty-six dollars (including tax). That’s five cents per piece!
An old aquaintance of mine, Bettina Grassman, has a web site. She’s going to India soon.
I’ve been keeping an eye out for a Valentine’s day present for Melanie, but everything is either really expensive or really cheesy. I suspect that I will have to give her something I have made 🙂
