FBTB Draft 7: C-C-C-COMBO! Registration Opens Today

Registration opens at 4 pm PST TODAY for FBTB’s 7th online parts draft which will take place on Saturday October 20th at 10 am PST.

Click to see the Bricklink inventory for 7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship and 7978 Angler Attack.

Still to be announced is how the figures will be split up (voice your opinion here) and how we’ll set the draft order.

10 participants will be drafting 20 sets total. The draft fee is $40, which covers the 50% off MSRP cost of the two sets, sales tax and ziplocks. All things being equal, you should receive an average of 589 parts for your money. There will be an additional nominal charge after the draft has been completed which will cover your exact shipping and packaging cost.

To register, post “C-C-C-COMBO!” in this topic at/after 4pm PST. The first nine responders will go into our Potential Participants pool, and everyone after that will go into a Standby List (not a bad place to be, the last few drafts considered!) Payment instructions will be sent out after we get 10 potentials.

FBTB Draft 7: C-C-C-COMBO!

Here’s your early “Save the Date” announcement for the next FBTB Draft. Our 7th(!) parts draft will be on Saturday October 20th.

This time we’re not only drafting TWO SETS, but we’re also going green – dark green.

Click here to see the Bricklink inventory for 7930 Bounty Hunter Assault Gunship and 7978 Angler Attack.

10 participants will be drafting 20 sets total (10 each of both sets.) The draft fee is $40, which covers the 50% off cost of the two sets plus tax. There will be an additional nominal charge after the draft has been completed which will cover your exact shipping and packaging cost.

Registration will open on Monday September 24th at 4 pm PST. I’ll post a followup item closer to registration day with the full lineup of draft rules so you know what you’re getting yourself into. A good primer would be to catch up the forum thread from our last draft.

FBTB Parts Draft Three

Now that BothCon and ComicCon are behind us, it’s time we got back to bidness. Who’s ready for a parts draft?

Third time’s the charm, right? We’re going to run things slightly differently this time. Instead of trying to restrict participants to one continent or another and trying to balance almost a dozen different schedules to find a perfect date and time, we’re just going to give you the date and you sign up if you can make it.

What are we drafting? 10 copies of Atlantis set 8061 Gateway of the Squid:

The draft will happen at 10 am PST on Saturday August 6th, which should give quite a number of our membership the possibility of participating.

Further amendments to the process as discussed after the last draft will be put into effect here.

Draft registration will commence on Wednesday August 3rd at 12 pm PST, which you can do in this thread here by simply posting your desire to participate. Feel free to post any questions or comments in the thread; anyone attempting to register before the clock hits noon on August 3rd will be disqualified from entering. I will then confirm your registration via private message and give you payment instructions, and our draft order will be decided by the order I receive payment from participants. Easy, right?

Confirmed – LEGO Lightning Deal Today 2pm PST

UOldPirate informs us that there is a possible LEGO Atlantis set scheduled for 2pm PST on Amazon’s Lightning Deal page. The teaser text simply says “We found Atlantis!” and is found in the Toys & Games section.

Gold box and Lightning deals tend to sell out in seconds, so grab one if and while you can. Good luck!

Update: zaskar from our forums informs us that it is indeed a LEGO Atlantis set. How? Through magic and trickery of course!
