I'm going to elevate the track on BURPS and DUPLO.
I'm interested in power functions so that might be another thing to delve into in 2016.
Too bad I wasn't actually collecting LEGO in 1990. Actually, I wish I was collecting LEGO earlier than that. I love the classic Castle and Pirates and Western.
1: now I have a room for my Lego I want to get display cabinets up, which oddly enough was my plan this year, but damn... they are expensive.
2: keep the random purchases down and allow the kids to pick their own sets and not just buy them the sets I think they want all the time
3: continue sticking to core the see for myself, SW D2C sets and OT system, superheroes and here's hoping more Dr Who
4: first major build of the year will be a Jessica Jones detective office/NYC street that fits in scale with the 'official' Lego superhero buildings, will get a DareDevil fig in there as well. I am sure other builds will pop up but for now that is enough for now
Just Alien. I didn't have a clue what the bike was until I googled it when it came out.
Micro Fighters is an example of this. In previous years I would have bought all six even if some were not as good as the others, this time will only get the two TFA because those are the ones that interest me.
Organization will also be a large goal for me.
My final goal is to rid myself of all unopened sets that I invested in. I would like to rid myself of investing in Lego as it takes time and money and while there is reward in investing, I would prefer to spend my time in other ways, including building.
But don't forget a new Simpsons building (if they produce one), a new UCS Marvel Vehicle (if they produce one), an Episode VII UCS SW vehicle...
And whatever new contraption they have to the Creator Fairground...
And whatever train they come up with to replace the Horizon Express...
And the Ideas Set - granted, I'm not enthusiastic about a Lego Labyrinth, but I have all of the others...
And the spectacular 2016 Winter Village Set. It'll be the Santa Sleigh Workshop that I've been wishing for. Or maybe a Post Office or Bakery. Either way, I've got to get those 'Limited Edition' mini-sets in November and December...
Polybags! Polybags! Polybags!
These are not actual 2016 resolutions - I'm still evaluating my goals for 2016...
I'd never leave my house.
So perhaps it's a wash. I'm told sunlight and inter-personal interactions are healthy.
complete my ninjahgo mech and dragon collection
build a moc out of firetemple
build a black bionicle moc
rockshaping and proper foliage
put more things to sell on bricklink
Finish Ninjago Temple MOC for Yorkshire Brick Show in May.
Assemble rest of Tanks I have bought parts for.
Maybe start a LUG.
Avoid buying all small sets to save money for bigger sets.
And maybe get to STEAM this year. (Though I've said that every year for the last few years).
2 - We are considering setting up a scottish LUG, that would be cool.
3 - Get to some meetings/conventions/trips. It would be great to meet other bricksetters further afield that I consider online friends but have no idea what they look like, SirKevbags for example. I know he has a beard but would love to find out if he actually has wings and always carries a wand as well!
less buying new sets and do more bricklinking
I'm not setting buying less goals. I already know I have no remote chance of accomplishing them.
So instead, I will set three I can reach:
1. Finish organizing my minifigs. I have OCD. Not the "I obsess over this one thing, so I say I have OCD" type; I really have OCD. That makes LEGO perfect and horrible for me at the same time. I need (read: NEED!!!) my minifigs organized a certain way. And I'm almost done. I've already set a goal of no more new set building until I'm done with the minifigs. That means I have several sets sitting, waiting for me to get to them. I actually might accomplish this goal before we get to 2016. Yay me, I guess.
2. I will buy the sets on my want list first. I have a problem of seeing the new stuff and buying it when I have a list of some older stuff that I've wanted for a while, but haven't bit the bullet on. I need to stop buying the brand new set that will be on shelves for two more years when I want a minifig that is four years old. It doesn't mean I'll be buying less though; it just means my purchasing in 2016 will start with the oldest sets/minifigs I truly want and not the shiny new box on the Target shelf.
3. I will build more for my son (well, sons, but the youngest is too young to have caught the LEGO bug yet). Some of you may be familiar with the children's story The Little Blue Truck. I built him a minifig-scale version of the truck. He loves it. Despite getting various sets for his birthday last year, that's the LEGO vehicle he still loves the most. It may also be the only MOC I've actually finished since I was a child. He wants me to build him a fire station, and a big fire truck, and a this, and a that, etc., etc. There are sets of some and not of others. I want to build him the ones there aren't set for.
2. To organise and set up a Brick Owl store
- Build more MOC's.
- Reduce Inventory.
