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 Draft Five: Last Call for Pizza Planet

Registration officially closes at midnight PST tonight for the 5th FBTB Parts Draft. There are only a couple spots left to fill in this forum topic.


Check out the set on Brickset here, or browse the inventory on Bricklink

If at the end of today we only have 8 participants, that’s the number of sets I’ll sort to keep it the split lots even. Anyone who decides to join after the sets are sorted will be added to the end of the list, since everyone else will have already paid and decided the draft order.
