  Is there a site like Bricklink but for Playmobil stuff?

Picked up a rather extensive collection with a Lego collection and need to make
space.

Thanks very much.

They exist, but I think most are in the UK.

I usually just unload PM on ebay.

Not sure there is. Play mobile collectors are more underground and far and few
between.
Got any LGB/ playmobil trains?

  Sorry, it’s a bit unclear. When you say “download the .xml,” don’t you mean
“open the file you created”?

If it is, did you correctly write “MINQTY” (all caps, no space)?

Oh, no, even simpler: BrickStock expects inventories, not WLs, so it’s QTY, not
MINQTY.

The .XML shows MINQTY.

guessing then there is no way to correct unless i want to go through all 409
lots.

Open the file in a dumb editor (like Notepad, not Word), and replace all occurences
of MINQTY with QTY.
There will be 818 replacements.


I don’t use BrickStock much but I find it weird it can’t read WLs

Thank you,

I must have had a brain freeze - I use notepad+ all the time and did not even
think about doing this for this.

Worked perfectly.

Thanks again
David

  Tomorrow we are flying back to the Netherlands for two weeks to see family and
friends. We haven't seen them in 2+ years, so there will be lots of catching
up to do.

While we enjoy our shop, it does take an insane amount of time, especially since
we predominantly sell used parts and both have a working-for-the-man job as well.
This trip will be the first time in 2 years that we won't be working every
day. Yay!

And on top of that, it is Friday folks! I am as happy as a pup with two tails!
My regular job ends at noon, then a trip to the driving range to whack a bucket
of balls, and then it is close to beer-a-clock (yes, Cory, still one beer, but
I am sure we will be drinking quite a bit more when back in NL/BE/FR).

So happy Friday everyone! And try not to break everything when I am away - I
will be checking up on you guys!

Niek.

Enjoy your time with your friends and family. I will be there later this year
for a summer conference.

Sounds nice!

I'd say post some pics while over there, but as much as I'd enjoy hearing/seeing
the good times your guys will no doubt have, I know being "home" again after
years away is something more than just a holiday, and I wouldn't want to
guilt you into keeping the BL forum in mind, especially with only the two short
weeks you have in your homeland.

Besides seeing family and friends, I can think of a few other things you've
gotta be excited about: extended "beer-a-clock" times with some awesome beers!
And letting loose with the mother tongue....one usually follows the other, anyways


Enjoy yourselves, and be safe (but not too safe )

Off Topic:
Discussion about things that are not related to LEGO or BrickLink.

Its sometimes difficult to post in the right subforum.
It's still an item that's for sale on another website.

It is something of interest for all BrickLink users who have a genuine love for
LEGO.

I says "Billion". That means 4billion 500million.

That equals 45million tiles.

Nope. It says “4.05 Billion Dollars.” That means 4 billion 50 million. 4,050,000,000.
Divided by 100, that’s 40,500,000.

The error you thought I made has nothing to do with “billion” but with the 0
between 4 and 5.


Now, there could have been an error on “billion.” That is, is it “short billion”
(9 zeroes) or “long billion” (a million million, 12 zeroes)? But as it’s about
“dollars,” a US currency, Disney, a US company, and an US citizen, it’s the US
“billion,” the short one.

3069bpx7 Tile 1 x 2 with 100 Dollar Bill Money Pattern
Parts: Tile, Decorated

That would be a lot of 100's

That one is easy: 4.05x10⁷ (40 millions and 500 thousands) tiles.

Volume: A tile is 0.4096 cm³, that’s 0.4096x10⁻⁶ m³. The box should at least
be 16.6 m³ (586 ft³, 4,400 gallons). That’d be a 2.55 m (8.5 ft) cube. Say,
an appartment’s kitchen or bathroom.

Weight: A tile is 0.26 g. The box is over 10,530 kg (23,215 lb, 1,658 stones,
a dozen small cars, 3½ Hummers).

There’s, by very far, not enough of this part on BrickLink to fill one box

I says "Billion". That means 4billion 500million.

That equals 45million tiles.

Cleaning out my old and unneeded prized possessions. Have a bunch of Nintendo
64 accessories I’m trying to sell or trade to fund my LEGO projects. Posted it
to eBay which you can view here:
http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=333116351909&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229466&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111

Feel free to message me with offers if this is something down your alley. It’s
not LEGO so believe the link is okay, and figured some of you have to still be
into the old games and systems. Would love this to go to a home of a fellow gaming/LEGO
fan!

Thanks!
Jonathan

The pic shows the side of the box with what looks like a list of parts. It shows
many green parts instead of just one with a qty of 40.5M. Looks like LEGO-Lucas
got paid in several different bank notes, some in large denominations.
