Default Lego Bricks

I know this is a strange request but, I'm looking for your kids old lego building block set. as many pieces as possible. only need plain square and rectangular bricks, i have no use for the specialized pieces. prefer free but will spend some $$ if you have alot of them to offer i.e 1000 and up piece count.

before you build anything you first have to have a blue print of the idea, then if the blue print looks good you build a scale model of the idea to see how everything fits together and make adjustments, then when everything looks good you move on to build whatever it is fullsize. this is the process i am following

i wanna have a 3d model to see if the room sizes versus total floor area are adequate. you made a thread almost the same as i did about a house above a garage, well i drew up a shitload of drawings and while on paper it all looks good i wanna make sure it will work together in 3d, and have all the plans figured out when i go to an architect later this spring.

Lego's aren't cheap, and people like me will pay someone money to get their old lego's, why in the hell would people give them away for free? Lego's still have a huge following.

You want lego's? here you go....

Gonna take a few boxes to build a model of your trailer as large as you are talking.

If you contact LEGO, they will sell you the pieces at cost, my cousin did the same thing and just asked them. Plus he then donated it to a museum and got a gov. grant for it as it was seen as art.

He can read. But since you can't understand what he's sayin let me splain it to you.

These things have a good value and high demand on the resale market so why the Hell would they give them to you for free. I am taking a guess at this but if you can't buy material to make a scale display I would bet money that you can't afford the modifications you are intending to display.

jesus christ you people suck at understanding shit. if you have lego bricks you don't want and would like to get rid of or sell them i'll take them off your hands or buy them. this is the whole point of this want ad. if you don't then i don't really care keep them. i'm going to be buying a bunch from the toy store regardless of weather or not i get some from someone on here or not. does that make sense now?
