...Half-Price Books near my work got some vintage Lego sets in somehow. I mean, REALLY vintage. If I'd had $150, I could have gotten Yellow Castle IN THE BOX...  :evil:  They had a bunch of 80's era castle stuff, but Yellow Castle was the only one they had that I'd never had.

Got these, though:

This will actually be the third one of those raft sets I got, but I never had any of the Islander sets when I was a kid. They came out when I was in High School and went through a Dark Age that lasted until my early college years. I blame... um... Huh, what WAS I doing during that time? Oh yeah, playing D&D a lot...

Again, how do you think *I* feel?!? If I had a spare $500 lying around, I could have gotten Yellow Castle, the original 80's King's Castle, the original Black Seas Barracuda, and the Carribean Clipper!!!  :evil:

Thing is... I already HAVE three of those four, from the original releases. King's Castle came out when I first got into Lego, and I got it as a Saturnalia present one year in the 80's. Freaking Yellow Castle though... NEVER had that...

One would think that it would be cheaper than 100$ at half-price books. though it is considered a collectors item by some
