BrickLink Order #5316246 and Storage Solutions

Its been over 18 months since I have order from BrickLink. This is a minor miracle for me, as prior to this I was ordering almost monthly. But it’s a big one to make up for it.

I have quite a few permanently built LEGO Mindstorms Robots which I use for exhibition purposes now, and as a result my Technic Liftarm resources where somewhat depleted. So off to BrickLink I went. To in Germany, in fact. Tom has a fantastic range of Technic Parts, including Liftarms in particular. And all at very good prices.

I also decided to have a bit of a colour change away from ‘Black Liftarms’ I usually use and purchase, and went for ‘Yellow Liftarms’ for a change. I initially setout to purchase a stack of ‘Lime Green Liftarms’ as they look really good with ‘Black Liftarms’, but I found sourcing the numbers I wanted, at the price I could afford, proved not to be a viable choice at this stage. So ‘Yellow Liftarms’ it is.

I still need to source the following to complete the collection in coming months:
  • 100x Technic, Liftarm 1 x 13 Thick
  • 50x Technic, Liftarm 1 x 15 Thick
  • 30x Technic, Liftarm 1 x 9 Bent (4 – 4) Thick
  • 30x Technic, Liftarm 1 x 9 Bent (6 – 4) Thick
  • 40x Technic, Liftarm 2 x 4 L-Shape Thick
  • 50x Technic, Liftarm 5 x 7 Open Center Frame Thick
  • 50x Technic, Liftarm 5 x 11 Open Center Frame Thick

I missed out sourcing the Yellow Technic 1 x 13 Liftarms, by the time it takes to make a Cup-of-Tea. As they say, “Those that hesitate are lost!”

Need-More-Bricks

The order surprised me in that the total weight of my purchase was nearly 2.5 Kilograms at the checkout.

My next move it to purchase a stack of new Storage Containers to accommodate all these new goodies. For my overflow the container of choice is of an Aussie Made Tupperware type. They cost $2.00 for the smallest 2 Litre containers shown up to $3.50 for the 9 Litre ‘Jumbo’ containers, which make for a very economical storage solution.

Plastic Storage Container

As can be seen from the Photograph of my LEGO Mindstorms & Electronics Lab below, I use a lot of these Aussie Made Tupperware type containers. I also us a large number of compartment storage boxes as well. As a rule, Tupperware type containers are used for parts overflow.
