My latest items: LEGO Fabuland and stormtroopers

I recently won an auction on eBay for a mixed lot of LEGO Fabuland pieces. I was pretty excited as I always wanted Fabuland when I was kid but never owned any. I still don’t own any sets, but I’ve now got ten minifigs, a park bench, a motorcycle, four food tiles and the best item of all – a fridge, featured in the previous post: WIN!

Fabuland mixed lot (like a family photo!)

The sheep is so faded it looks like a ghost. It looks terribly feeble, like it will fall over any second. Its arms and legs are very loose, so it won’t be great for posing. The boat captain walrus is in excellent condition. The rest of the minifigs are clearly used but in pretty good nick, considering their age.

There were two police bull dogs in the batch – this is the better of the two; the other bulldog’s face is a little faded. I always wanted a Fabuland motorbike and now I finally have one!

That same week, I also bought five new Star Wars stormtroopers. Here are two of them, examining the secondhand fridge. You have no idea how thrilled I am to have won that fridge. Stay tuned for more from the stormtroopers. :)

WIN: When you stumble out of bed in your undies, open the fridge, and it’s full of beer and pizza.

I picked up the fridge, along with other LEGO goodies, from my PO Box on Saturday. It is an old LEGO Fabuland one I won on eBay along with other Fabuland bits and pieces. The little red drawer on the bottom shelf slides open and is removable. I have a feeling this fridge going to become one of my most important props.
