The name says it all. The best shopping website, in the known world. Bricklink is the world's largest seller of parts; it probably even trumps LEGO in terms of parts being sold on a day-to-day basis. So, do you buy from the great site? What do you buy from this wonderful land of plastic that isn't Barbies? (Wait what?) And, if you don't buy from BL, how do you acquire your parts?

I acquired my collection through buying official lego sets (shame on me!). I started collecting it about when I was 10. Seven years have passed sice then and now I have a big collection (at least for me)

Really? How many parts do you (at least estimate) do you have at your disposal? I occasionally buy sets for parts (what else is Star Wars for?), but my primary suppliers are BL and PAB (pick a brick, LEGO's version of BL, except more expensive, and less, way, way, way less parts to chose from).

I will post a picture of how many finished MOCs I have.

Estimate? I would say...

... a lot? xD between 5 and 10 thousand

Sadly lot of these are colors I rarely use. Red, yellow, blue. You know, non-military colors.

Hmm, kinda the same here. At least two-three thousand parts that I rarely use. My collection probably number in at least 10-12 thousands parts, so many of which are impossible to count 1x2 grill pieces.

Yup! Plenty of grey, plenty of parts for things that go bang!

You can never have enough of those. You can put it on anything and it looks good.

Yeah. I managed to pick up a few handfuls of dark bluish grey pieces at a PAB wall in a LEGO store (this was back when they stored parts you actually wanted!). Never ordered a single one of those parts since.
