I get roughly £80 to spend each week on LEGO sets or other stuff and im still contemplating which of these sets to get next week the arctic icebreaker as I enjoyed building the arctic base camp or these 3 new LEGO Friends sets heartlake hot balloon , heartlake lighthouse and vet ambulance

it sounds silly to ask I know but i am relatively an indecisive and very picky person
hey after building dolphin cruiser I understand why LEGO friends is popular

    Personally, I would get the new friends sets, but that may just be based on my personal preference. To my knowledge, this is one of only two hot air balloon sets ever released, the other being 7415 Aero Nomad, which is more than 10 years old. This one has a beautiful cool scheme and realistic look, and a beautifully designed nature scene as well. Lighthouses are also rare, and I really like the way this one is designed. It's bright and cartoony, but it still looks attractive, IMO, and looks to be a fun build. Great parts too.

    Ultimately, it's up to you, but these are just my thoughts. Also, great LEGO allowance, I wish I could spend that much per week on my hobby!

    It's a matter of personal preference, but if you really can't decide, wait 7 days and buy them all.

    The icebreaker would go great with the base camp, BUT the light house would also go great with your cruise...

    I guess you will just have to buy all of it in 2 weeks. :P

    I don't think you have to choose. If you've got £80 per week to spend, just buy them all over the next two weeks! It's seems like a no-brainer really!

    Waw, £80 a week, that is a nice allowance. Lucky you!

    I agree with the previous posts, buy it over two week period :-)

    On a £4k budget per year, just buy what you want when you want it. If you want a £160 set miss a week, then buy two weeks' worth the next week. Or buy it on a credit card if you know you can pay it off.

    You might as well then come back and start a load more personalised blog threads, as that is what the brickset forum seems to have become these days.

    I'm sorry, but I really don't understand you @TheGlynreaper it's really not necessary to let people know how much you get to spend each week. Is that a paycheck? How old are you? I hope you are saving and not blowing it ALL on LEGO. That would be really dumb no matter how fun the dolphin cruiser is.

    ^You don't actually believe it do you?
    It's clear bragging for attention
    Why be so obvious about it otherwise?
    God knows I wouldn't even have noticed if he didn't go out of his way to draw attention.
    Which is strange to me because does anyone on here really care how much money you have?

    That's what makes Brickset such a good forum - the community feel of it!

    If you have £4160 on annual basis to spend on Lego, you DO NOT have a problem, but a luxury.
    I say: enjoy it!
    ps.
