Bricklink vs. Pick-a-Brick
Wasn't entirely sure where to put this, but since it involves buying parts, this seemed like the place for it.
I 'm looking at piecing together the Marina Bay Sands Architecture set, minus the printed tile of course (I should get the dimensions of that tile just so I can replace it with a standard plain black tile).
Anyway, I did some looking, and it appears as though Pick-a-Brick has all but 12 of the parts of I need (excluding the printed tile). It still ends up a bit on the expensive side, but a lot cheaper than the $500-$600 plus it currently sells for.
So the main question is, if I can get all those parts from Pick-a-Brick, am I better off doing that and just getting the remaining pieces from Briclink, or would I save quite a bit trying to get most of my pieces from Bricklink (although a lot of the pieces had only a few cent difference)?
