Do you want to sell your retired LEGO sets?

Sometimes even LEGO fans would like to sell their LEGO collection, or part of their collection. This may be due to not having enough room, moving, financial challenges, loosing interest in the hobby (hope not!) or just wanting to free up room for new LEGO sets. ;)

There are several venues to sell LEGO – Craigslist, eBay, BrickLink or even running a garage-sale are some of them. However if you don’t have the time to do the selling yourself, you can take advantage of the services of Brian Semling, owner of Brian’s Toys. Here is what Brian wanted to let our readers know about what he can offer to LEGO fans who desire to sell:

“Brian’s Toys (, founded in 1994, has primarily been a retailer of Star Wars, G.I. Joe, Transformers, and Marvel toys and collectibles for the last 18 years. We started selling LEGO sets about 4 years ago and are now aggressively purchasing sealed (and opened boxes with new, unused contents) LEGO sets.

We are paying top dollar for sealed LEGO sets. We have a complete list of prices we are paying for sealed Star Wars LEGO sets. We are working on a more comprehensive list of prices that we are paying for other LEGO categories from the last 10 years or so, which we expect to have ready in July. For now, just send us a list at of the LEGO sets that you have for sale, and we will be happy to issue a price-quote within several days. For a limited time we are offering FREE shipping on your first box shipped to us by UPS, and we offer our account for discounted UPS rates on all of your other cartons shipped.

The following link will take you to a page with more information on prices we are paying and how to sell LEGO sets to us: Sell LEGO at Brian’s Toys. Or email or call (608)-687-7572 ext. 3 and discuss with Joe any questions you may have about selling LEGO to us.

So if you have any LEGO sets to sell you can contact Brian and his team and see what you can work out. I have also added a quick banner-link to the sidebar on the right (the bright-green box) to reach Brian’s LEGO buying page and regularly updated LEGO Buy List. This is a great resource you may want to take advantage of now or in the future when you need to move some of your LEGO collection.

By the way, Brian also runs an eBay store, also called Brian’s Toys. If you are interested on the buying side you can check out his website at or Brian’s Toys on eBay.

Nice post, I have every released Lego Aquaraiders except one hard to find item now worth upwards of $100, and will probably sell them individually in about 10 years after picking up a couple missing pieces on PAB. I also plan to do the same with my Indiana Jones sets (of which I have 4/5 of all of the released sets) but my SW & Ninjago sets are keepers.

Yeah, it is a good idea to keep a balance. Some sets/themes are worth letting go, other’s are worth to keep. I know many people who greatly regret selling their collection, others are afraid to sell them and are burried under boxes they never even opened. For me the judgement to sell anything (LEGO or otherwise) is that if I haven’t touched it/used it for 6 months, it is time to let it go and have someone else enjoy it. This also opens up space (and money) for new things in my life. So it’s a win-win. ;)

I like older sets alot. I have a couple of old Bat lord(Knights theme) sets. :)


admin June 6, 2012 at 12:08 PM

Oh, Bat Lords! That was an awesome theme! Love their helmets! I have a couple of them myself. BTW, eBay is a great place to pick up older sets for cheap! I have gotten some gorgeous sets from the Viking line (love those!) and also the Orient Expedition Dragon Fortress and two copies of the Scorpion Palace. :D

This place only buys your items after you pay to ship them to them. They are known to not pay and rip people off. So your out your items, your payment, and the cost to ship your items. WARNING BEWARE

Joe, sorry to hear that you had a bad experience. Do you want to me contact them on your behalf? I haven’t heard any complaint about them before.
