Acquiring Set Instructions
Hi all! I am new to Brickset. 3 questions:
1. What's the best way to acquire original set instructions for sets that I want to sell?
2. I have about 30 incomplete sets. Some are missing only 5 or 10 pieces and some larger sets are missing over 100 pieces. Some pieces are basic bricks and others are more specialized. I've supplemented what I can from my own collection. I know that Lego will send pieces for free but I imagine that has to be limited. I know I can purchase pieces online from Lego (which sounds like it takes forever). I know about Pick-A-Brick in Lego stores and I know I can purchase bulk from ebay. I'd love to know how others go about finishing their sets.
3. I got into Lego when my young son started building. I came to realize that while he only built by following the instructions, other kids (and adults) preferred free building. So out of necessity he only played with new sets. We've been given many random Lego pieces and incomplete sets over the years which is how my collection started. Will the general public or parents whose kids free build buy Lego sets without instructions?
Looking forward to hearing from some of you. Thx.
