I have lots of Lego animals. A favourite is the pony from the old Paradisa sets. I have the two sets with the ponies, and two spare ones. Along with those i have lots of parrots in odd colours from a PaB-special here in Sweden five years ago.
I also have printed 2x2 flags, lots of old knights from the classic castle themes and chrome silver pieces. Lots of them :)
I'd rather have owls :( I think the HP decorated ones are just awesome!
Thats the one, thanks! 2x4 I meant. oops!
POTC, interesting. I only have the bigger sets, which explains why I hadn't seen it.
Pointy plates in all shapes and sizes
Train dashboards, have about 30 of them from a yellow grab bag (which, incidentally there were none of in the westfield store today)
Wheels, oh my god, wheels. No wonder Lego is the world's biggest tyre manufacturer, I've got them all and I don't know why.
I also have something of an owl fetish, but that's entirely voluntary.
Funny... but true! (C:
Just curious if this ever happens to anyone else.
Ninjago is a garbage theme to me; no offense intended to anyone here that collects it. It's a lineup that I would have been all over as a kid, but as an AFOL it just strikes me as overly absurd and not very interesting.
With that said, the other night I was conducting evening business on the can and was looking through my new LEGO January catalog for the first time, when something on the inside front cover caught my eye: 9446 Destiny's Bounty. I fell in love with it instantly. It has enormous eye-appeal and I simply love the ship design and sails.
My head was under siege by a battle of intense conflict. I was trying to fight off these Ninjago demons and attempting to reason with myself, but I was quickly losing the fight. Then today I found myself at Target and saw a single copy of the set on a shelf, and I knew it was over. I loved it even more in person. I sighed, and walked out with my first Ninjago set. =)

Don't fret. I was totally underwhelmed with the Red Ninjago line, but with a 7YO, Ninjago it is. The Green line, however, is really great. We have built quite a few and I have enjoyed them tremendously.
I should now have the full regular line (not necessarily promos) of the Pharaoh's Quest line, saw some deals......
Prince of Persia was also kinda of an accidental collection, but price per piece on some nice newer colors was FAR too difficult to pass up....
With the 2012 sets now appearing on Amazon I hope my attention will increasingly be focused there from now onwards.
Am on the fence about Market Street. I don't want to be obsessive about completing the whole series, though.
Oh, and I like the motorized amusement park sets. Have Grand Carousel and Ferris Wheel (4957). Are there any others?
Would love to get a LEGO rollercoaster. But there aren't any as far as I know (maybe because it would be very fragile). Am thinking of MOCing one.
OK, not amazingly useful I appreciate, but still.
I have an accidental collection of the 3x4 collectible minifig bases. Hundreds of them. They're piled up into giant stacks, like 2001 A Space Odyssey-style obelisks for my Banana Balance monkeys to bash with bones...
OK I think we all know that it is easy for scope creep to occur in this hobby/obsession, but sometimes it shocks me just how much.
I started collecting Star Wars only and then added Modular (and have a 5yr old boy so get a few 'randoms').
Recently I came across the Autumn 2011 Catalogue and before binning it decide to just have a flick.
It quickly became apparent how uncontrolled I have been.
Advent Calendars - I own 2 of 2
Minifig Series 5 - I own 16 of 16
Trains - I own 0 of 2
City - I own 9 of 9 - this is the big shocker for me, I don't even like City
Ninjago - I own 8 of 10 (4 spinners)
PoTC - 3 of 4
Exclusives - Got MMV, Tower Bridge, Pet Shop - Haven't got Maersk Train
Cars2 - 5 of 5
HP - 5 of 5
AC - 5 of 5
Spongebob - 1 of 2
Atlantis - 1 of 1
PQ - 1 of 1
Kingdoms - 2 of 2
Creator - 2 of 3
Technic - 0 of 4
Starwars - 8 of 13
Totals - 71 of 88
(Keychains, HF and Games not included)
And this in reality is just the tip of the iceberg as I know I have ended up with at least half a dozen Atlantis sets, same for PQ, same for Kingdoms, I have to say I am stunned at how these bricks get to you, had no intention whatsoever of getting a large percentage of these sets.
So, question, how is it that I looked at, for example, Atlantis, and thought, that holds no interest to me at all, yet now am sat here with a few hundred pounds worth of Atlantis sets in my loft? And, thinking about it, I really like a lot of the sets too... Where did that change...
I think there is some kind of subliminal messaging going on or some form of drug that they apply to the bricks and you absorb through the finger tips.. :)
But I picked up one set when it was 50% off and then another. And another.
Maybe I'm drawn to the bright colors. I can't explain it.
