Best place to buy Lego bricks BULK?

BrickNJBrickNJ MNMember Posts: 2
Hello my fellow Bricksetian's! 

It's been over almost 5 years since I've touched my Legos under my bed, and I think it's about time for me to start doing what I once enjoyed the most.Being away from Legos for so long, my current Legos are either missing lots of pieces or just old dirty Legos. If you guys can be help me by giving me some times on where I can buy Legos bricks.

What I am looking for is just regular Lego bricks as I look forward to building things like house structure, towers and mostly candy machines so I will need a lot of Lego bricks. I have seen the Lego Class Creative series, which looks like it will do the job, but they seem to have a lot of smaller pieces for building small things, like a small car or a small house. Is there a place where I can buy just only buy regular Lego bricks?  

Thank you!

    edited March 2 is a great place to start.  You can buy any brick you desire in any quantity you desire(as long as it is available).  I would also look at your local Craigslist listings, you can sometimes find bulk lots for sale.  Or definitely yard sales/flea markets are always good.  Finally, you can go to and check out their bricks and pieces section.

    the pick-a-brick wall at the Lego store isn't bad. you can even buy in bulk instead of using the cups (not sure if that option is only for LUGs). but best option I've ever had is finding a vendor at a local brick selling establish or LEGO convention that sells by the pound or per gallon bag. in all these cases you'll have more of a direct choice in what you get as far as color goes, depending on their availibility.

    Garage sales/yard sales can be good, but just know that you are likely to have a bunch of non Lego pieces included that you'll need to sort out.

    The PaB @ LegoLand is great... My neighbour went (my own sons aren't at the right age yet), and he brought me back a buttload of 1x2 brick-bricks (?) in different colours for a VERY good price.

    Shame they don't let you buy unlimited amounts of DBG 2x2 tiles... ;)

    Some smaller collectible shops sell bulk a lot of time too. For example, Anderson's Coins and Collectibles is the largest buyer and seller of Lego in the Chicagoland area

    I have to say, while PaB online at has its limitations vs at a LEGO store (price per piece instead of how many you can fit into a cup for example), right now they really have a ton of different size brick in all sorts of colors up right now on their site. So if you are looking for brick/plate in various colors, all for one price I believe, then LEGO may be the better option, seeing as often you have to go to multiple sellers on BL (which means S@H fees), plus with LEGO all brick is new condition.

    Now, I will say this. If you old sets are missing pieces, and they are older sets (like 10+ years old) then you may want to go to or (both sellers of LEGO brick new and used) to get the parts that have some wear on them akin to what your sets have, and to also make sure you get the right mold type of the set depending on when it was released. For example, if you have a set from the 80's with old white brick, that may be a bit discolored, then you do not want to buy brand new LEGO brick because the color tones will be off. You will likley want to go to BL and look for used bricks/parts in that color (plus some brick or part types are no longer produced by LEGO for past sets)

    #10404 available at Walmart now for $26.84 is 579 pieces. Not as good as a Black Friday deal, but not bad for a box of classic bricks.

    Try There's always Lego being sold there for reasonable prices. You can find big boxes of random parts, and sometimes even compete sets. Watch the auctions for a couple of weeks, and you're sure to snag a deal there. Just look carefully at the pictures, and be aware that you may be sorting out non-Lego parts. But yeah, kudos to you for getting back into Lego. It's the best choice you'll ever make.

    In addition to the suggestions above, I would recommend finding a local LEGO user group (LUG). If available they can point you toward local sources along with other options available exclusively through a LUG.
