What are your favorite greebles ???

Post by artic316 » Wed Nov 01, 2017 10:47 pm

:?: What is everyone's favorite / preferred source of greebles ? I am curious to what others use for detail parts, main components etc. Although I am no expert in building like some of you guys, I find dollar stores a good start for the grebellion creations usually the toys or party supply section. :D They are cheap and plentiful. Hopefully we can all help each other with new ideas and inspiration. :8)

ps- I am not sure if this topic has appeared before.

I find my son's toy boxes very helpful. He has accumulated a lot of broken toys over the years, which I often cannibalize once they are discarded. Also, lego has many interesting specialized shapes these days.

Broken toys from flea markets and thrift stores. Water guns. Broken headphones. Cheap kits from vendors at model contests.

I've used Gundam parts and pieces to good effect.
