Good Sets for Parts, Part 3

With the new sets for the summer finally on the shelves, we have a few more really good sets for MFZ parts.

9448 Samurai Mech is only $39.99 for 452 pieces.  You get a slew of really good ones; hinges, clips, bars, cheese slopes, technic, new brackets, lots of gold bits, and two funky new pieces -- a new connector and an inverted tile.

9463 The Werewolf is $19.99 for 243 pieces.  This one is from the new Monster Fighters line.  It doesn't have quite as many neat parts as the Samurai Mech but, it is a smaller set.  It does have four Taps though.

9461 The Swamp Creature is $6.99 for 70 pieces.  Another Monster Fighters set, this -- being a small set -- only has a handful of parts.

4208 4x4 Fire Truck is $21.99 for 243 pieces.  A good range of parts in Green, Black, Grey, and Red.

4434 Tipper Truck is $21.99 for 222 pieces.  This one isn't so new but it does feature a bunch of good pieces at a decent price point.

All of these sets fall into or under the 10 cents per part "golden ratio".

The first Good Sets for Parts post is here.

The second GSfP post is here.


  1. 40031 Bunny & Chick is currently on sale at the lego store for $1.48 a set, which is a pretty smoking deal! Even with shipping, it's at about $0.05 a piece and each set has 4 travis bricks...

    1. It's mentioned in the "Buying Lego Sets for MFZ" post.

  2. It's existence is mentioned, the sale price of $1.48 instead of $4.99 is not.

  3. Yeah, I picked up two sets of Bunny & Chick this past weekend on my first trip to the Austin LEGO store. Also picked up the Star Wars Brickmaster book as well, and a nice cup of random parts for $8.

    Thanks for the recommendations!
