Where do you shop?

hey guys, i just recently got back into lego after i found this website :P and i relized id sold about 10 pounds of it for 100$... i was smart enough to keep most figures (almost all cool lol) and my unique pieces and building pieces, so i can still make my favorite thing to make, airships.
however im tired of making a close to the same sized ship everytime, the only reason for this is that i don't have THAT many building blocks.. i wanna make rooms and stuff, like a REALLY large airship lol.

So i was wondering, where do you guys get bulk lego? my Toys R us does not have any and for some reason LEGO.com doesn't have any in stock either lol.. so any advice would be great! thanks

bricklink is exactly what you're looking for. basic bricks are super cheap in bulk.

Wal-Mart sux man. They never have good castle sets...

But for bulk, I would say bricklink. Just drum up the piece you'll want and you can get tons for pennies.

Lego store, TRU, ebay, and mostly bricklink. Also from random people at garage sales and sometimes friends.

I don't buy - I inherit other people's LEGO when they've gotten bored of it.

I do that to sometimes.

And to quote the Grand Admiral,
