Bargain Bricks: Episode 8 – Utility Shuttle

When I was emerging from my dark ages, the City theme was taking one of its sojourns into space. I was on a tighter budget and was buying buildings to create a city at the time. Consequently, despite wanting space sets, I did not buy many. I managed to score the Spaceport on liquidation. However, I missed out on other sets from the collection, including the Utility Shuttle (60078). Back when I shared a preliminary look at my 30-pound brick bin in episode 3, I speculated the bin might contain the Spaceport or Utility Shuttle. As you’ve likely guessed, it was the latter. To find out more, check out Bargain Bricks: Episode 8 below!

Until next time,
