Lego Bulk Buys - Regular vs. Themed (Friends)
I recently began buying bulk lego as my daughter and I are getting more and more into building with them. I was wondering if it is common for girl bulk lots (Friends/Elves/Disney Princess) to cost more than other themes and regular lots. I know that it seems Star Wars bulk is typically more per lb, but Friends seems exceedingly more per lb than others (at least from my experience buying bulk lots).
examples that I've recently purchased (per lb price includes full paid amount including shipping):
9 lbs at $7.28/lb mixed lot
6 lbs at $5.03/lb mixed lot
5 lb at $4.69/lb mixed lot
7.5 lb at $4.88/lb mixed lot w/ Creator 6752 bagged
8 lb at $6.50/lb mixed lot w/ 4 mini figures
6.2 lb at $13.03 w/ 50+ mini figures
(I know this one is a high per lb price, but I've read that when figuring a good price calculate mini figs at $1 ea, sometimes more if Star Wars/Special)
3.5 lb at $9.80/lb friends mixed lot
3.5 lb at $9.08/lb friends mixed lot
8.9 lb at $9.66/lb 6x Friends sets + 1 SW
8 lb at $10.63/lb 12x friends sets
(The last 2 includes the instructions in the weight. Sets were not complete, but close - should be able to complete with mixed lots)
As you can see, the friends lots are in some cases double what I've been getting other lots for. I've been trying to target no more than $5-6/lb for mixed lots unless there is something special or known mini figures, but I've been unable to get any girly lots for that price.
