It's licensed merchandise, but not Lego... strictly speaking.
if if this was a random gift card that someone gave me, then I think I would be hard pressed not to use the rest to grab the Death Star for my son and add in the extra $10.
If this was my money on the gift card, then the remainder money would go to deciding between
The other large Scooby set
new minecraft sets
The large Ninjago set theat is supposedly coming out
Changing Seasons $50
Toy & Grocery Shop $40
Beach Hut $30
Then I'd be nice and get a Slave 1 for the hubby, that leaves $30 for the kids to each pick something small.
Or I'd get another Ferris Wheel for my daughter.
It's a little frightening that there aren't more big sets that I/we want that we don't already have... Christmas was good this year.
probably ewok village, metalbeard's sea cow and the detective office
Although that would amount to $45.60 in sales tax for me on top of the $760.
Then either Simpsons house or the new train, when it is released
Cant do the pick a brick unfortunately,no lego store in my country
1xpet shop 150.
2xdetective office 300
1xtower of orphanac 200
various lego creator and starwars polybags 100
I would sell the $750 gift card to one of you for $700 in cash. I need Transformers money right now, man! The new Combiner Wars line is eating away at my Lego budget.
1x: Pet Shop
1x: Detective's Office
1x: Changing Seasons
I would save the remaining $191 for the 2015 Death Star Final Duel and Episode 7 potentials.
Back to thread discussion...
City Modular set
I ´d start with buying UCS TIE Fighter.
I'd wait until Q3 and get:
42043: Mercedes Benz Arocs 3245
42040: Fire Plane
60092: Deep Sea Submarine
60095: Deep Sea Exploration Vessel
60098: Heavy Haul Train
42042: Crawler Crane
if there was anything left over.
(Well, I suppose the "sell to another Brickset user" option from above appeals.)
That said, if I had to choose currently in-production sets... Yeah, I think I could. I would get some Elves sets (cool parts and colors, especially Farran and the Crystal Hollow), I would get MetalBeard's Sea Cow, because wow, that's a pirate ship, I would get Benny's Spaceship, MetalBeard's duel, and... Hmm. Hard to say. Probably a bunch of assorted Chima and/or Ninjago. If I didn't already have the current pirates wave, I'd surely get that. What can I say; I'm still five at heart. Pirates and ninjas are clearly the way to go.
The only thing I can really think of doing is buying sets from themes like Legends of Chima and Ultra Agents that I haven't really been committed to collecting, but have enjoyed on the side.
I was a little surprised, however, no one mention buying legos for charity or to give away. I don't build a lot of legos, but I do give a lot away.
However, if I actually had one in hand, I'd buy the Volvo loader, mobile crane, and the heavy duty wrecker, then save the rest for upcoming sets I'd want to have, like the Arocs.
