2%? Why not just tax all the cool pieces?

I thought about that, but than I realized that those are the most prized parts of a given collection and therefore I could not take them and actually expect people to send me shit to sort. Instead, I'd just take 2x4s and all the really common bricks and plates, because volume is the thing I lack most in my collection- I'd progress from being able to build nothing to being able to build :j+b: terrain.

Brick-built dragons are so much cooler dude! Plus they don't have to be green and have orange florescent wings!

If it was the gemstone dragon from the old Johnny Adventure sets, umm, that might have fallen under my radiator and I can't get to it without losing the deposit on my apartment sorry bro

I've had a response for this post for a while now, but didn't actually post it. :mystery:

Considering my 1x2 and 2x2 slopes bins look like this:

it's hard enough to find a certain colour in the first place. I can't imagine putting all my slopes in one bin. :whoelse:

Update: Progress has been stalled due to building for a contest (for which I missed the deadline LOL) and my sister moving out. I'll start up again at some point.

You don't think putting 1x2s and 2x2s in the same box would work? I agree that mixing together up-slopes and down-slopes would be a nightmare.

Unless they're black with red wings.
