View Full Version : GW Battle Bunker Flea Market, Dec. 1 & 2, USA

26-11-2007, 04:57
Just a reminder that this coming weekend is Bizarre Bazaar, Dec. 1 & 2 at all US Battle Bunkers. If you've got a bunch of old stuff to trade or sell for cash, it's a great place to do so. I had tremendous luck at the flea markets back in March and May. I bought some great stuff at ridiculously low prices and sold a ton of stuff for some really good money while making a few fun trades too.

If you have a pile of stuff or just a few items you'd like to sell or trade, you might want to consider setting up shop. Doors open at 10:00 am Saturday, Dec. 1 and noon on Sunday, Dec. 2. At the last Bizarre Bazaar I found a brand new on sprue Hammerhead for $10, a new on sprue Mumak for LotR for $25, and some Eldar Warp Spiders for $1 each. I also bought $340 retail worth of Eldar miniatures from one fellow for $100 and sold a ton of my own old books and miniatures for very good amounts of money. Good luck bargain hunters!

err... this is a GW event?? Offical? Sanctioned? Why can't they do something like that in the UK?? I'd love to go to something like that! Sounds like my idea of heaven and my wife's idea of hell :D more toy soldiers around the place!!

Have fun, those of you lucky enough to be able to go!

Yes it is a GW event. Here at least you don't buy the item. You buy a gift card for the amount of the purchase and give that to the seller. That way they must use it to purchase more GW stuff (or sell the card to another third party ;)). It is a lot of fun.

I've been looking forward to this for a long time. I've got a large amount of figures to sell or trade, quite a few of the Rogue Trader era. Might as well let them go to someone who would actually use them (and give me cash in the bargain).

Absolutely this is a sanctioned GW event. It's been on the Battle Bunker events schedule all year. The last time they did this Mercenary Market/Bizarre Bazaar flea market event, cash exchange rather than gift card purchasing was allowed, at least in the Battle Bunker in Maryland. This may vary however by individual store, so check with your local Battle Bunker for details.

I still have a pile of stuff I'd like to trade, including some classic books and lead miniatures as well as more current stuff, so I'll be setting up shop early on Saturday, Dec. 1 and 2.

27-11-2007, 06:18
I can tell you that if you get a chance to go these are great places to get models cheap and trade away stuff that has been laying around for stuff you want. I totally forgot about the December event. I'll have to see what I have to trade since the wallet is on empty.

27-11-2007, 15:41
Here's a list of just some of the items I'll have for trade or sale at the Battle Bunker Mercenary Market on Dec. 1 & 2 this coming weekend:

-Vortex Grenade Templates for Codex Apocalypse (3) new in box
-Metal Black Orcs boxed set
-Bloodbowl Orcland Raiders boxed set
-Mephiston new in blister (2)
-Empire Rocket Battery (full box set minus only the Volley Gun bits)
-Chaos Minotaurs new in blister (7)
-Empire Wizard blister with foot and mounted
-Chaos Possessed blisters (2)
-Space Ork squad comprising original lead and plastic Orks from early 1990s, fully painted.
-Original Ghazgull Ork new in blister (model made of lead)
-Space Marine blister with wounded Space Marine (models made of lead)
-Assorted older Codex and other GW books, and blisters, Man O' War mast sprues and more!

I'm adding one thing to my trade list above, a White Dwarf XXX anniversary miniature, still in box with shrink wrap on. I may also part with an Eldar Bonesinger, though it's such a great looking model, I may have trouble selling even the extra one I have.

I updated my (now amazingly long) list in my original post.

Any WarSeer folk in the Seattle area, I'll see you at the Bellevue Battle Bunker on Saturday December 1st.

Frowbakk, that is a seriously impressive list of stuff you're selling... shame you're 6000 miles away :D

Totally off topic, but worth saying... love the avatar!!

Frobakk did you make it or did the snow keep you away?

02-12-2007, 00:22
Dang it! I live in the US but the nearest battle bunker is 500+ miles away!!!!GAH!

02-12-2007, 03:45
Got about $120 in cash today at Bizarre Bazaar at my local Battle Bunker, made some great trades and buys. Got my son $170 worth of Eldar stuff for $30! Tomorrow is day 2 of this great Bizarre Bazaar!

I picked up a 3000 point nicely painted dwarf army for $40. I also got an old board game called Blood Bowl. The old owner didn't play much since the army markers are not punched out. Below is a photo. It was $15.

I also put a photo of one of the squats for sale. They were five bucks each. Naturally, I chose not to buy any but I did grab the photo.

Frobakk did you make it or did the snow keep you away?

It wasn't snowing when I showed up at Noon when the Battle Bunker opened. But when the snow started falling, new people coming to the store dropped off by a large margin.

It's snowing again, but unlike most Seattle drivers I extend my following distance between cars and keep my speed down in the snowy weather. I passed three SUV's in the ditch on my way home. 4 x 4 only helps with low speed steering, not high speed braking, you idiots...

Although it is snowing now, the weather report says it will warm up later in the day and turn to rain. As long as it keeps precipitating it's safer to drive than if it stops and the temperature drops causing everything to freeze.

Enough about Meteorology... I'll be back at Noon today (Sunday) to see what else I can sell or trade away.
