    I'm planning to buy that one really big expensive one.

    I live in hope that we're thinking about the same thing... but being a Star Wars fan I'm becoming used to being disappointed by all things UCS.  Assault on Hoth, 10188 MK 1.0001; what have TLG been doing this year?

    Perhaps 2017 will be a year to remember for all of the right reasons; at this point in time I'd be happy for the long awaited #75144 actually being an updated #10129 (with 10 extra elements!!) Yes, that's the best we can expect - a New Hope 40 years on.

    Is the Snowspeeder THE UCS for Star Wars' 40th birthday? Or is that the normal slot with something far more impressive to accompany it? The ideal partner to a UCS Snowspeeder would be a UCS AT-AT.

    I would love to buy:
    -the SW battle Packs;
    -Imperial Hovertank (it may be not the regular RO set);
    -Yavin 4 Temple (needs to be both sustantial and the equivalent of the regular Creator sets);
    -Y-Wing Bomber;
    -Bunker Battle (will use this to MOC as well);
    -there seems to be a lot of unlabeled sets as of now in the Brickset page so let's see what goes on, I will however, only concentrate on the sets that have a place in my universe (both inthe Clone Wars and OT era).

    A year since I came out of my dark ages, I am still buying more LEGO than I should. So, following this year's trend, I expect to buy:

    - #10255 Assembly Square.
    - #21309 Old Fishing Store.
    - All The Batman Movie sets (to go along with my complete collection of The LEGO Movie sets)
    - Whatever Winter Village set comes out.
    - All non-prequel-related Star Wars sets.
    - All Dimension sets.
    - All non-skyline Architecture sets.
    - All Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 sets.
    - Various City sets (mostly vehicles).
    - Various Creator sets (minifigure-scale vehicles and buildings, and brick-build animals)
    - All Seasonal sets.
    - CMFs Series 17 and The Batman Movie.
    - Whatever polybags I can get my hands on.
    - Mixels... oh, wait.

    Unless I find a girlfriend, in which case it will be whatever she lets me buy.

    Assembly square, Old fishing store, CMF17, Batman Movie CMFs, All Batman Movie sets (as JooTog says, to go with the complete collection of TLM sets). And that's the list even before I see any of those new shiny boxes in the stores...
  • emilewskiemilewski CT, USAMember Posts: 475
    For me for 2017:
    - Assembly Square
    - The next fairground set after Mixer and Ferris Wheel
    - Apollo 11 Ideas set
    - maybe Disney Castle but not sure I can afford it next year)
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,768
    I haven't really committed to many individual sets yet, but I'm certain I'll be continuing to collect Ninjago, Elves, and Nexo Knights. It'll be easier to decide what specific sets to get once we have pictures that make it clear what figures come in each.

    LEGO Batman Movie is also looking tempting. I'm not normally drawn to too much licensed stuff, but if the movie itself is as good as the trailers make it look I'll probably want to pick up at least a few sets from that line.

    With Bionicle ending, I guess I'll want to pick up a few Star Wars buildable figures just to satisfy that constraction itch, though in that case I'm more interested in the parts than in the sets.

    And of course, depending on what sets seem to offer the most promising parts, I might get some stuff to review for New Elementary. Though that might be a bit trickier what with me returning to college next year, so I don't want to get in over my head.

    For me in 2017, it'll be mopping up my wishlist, getting some of the city sets, and then a lotta Bricklink orders and maybe some sets brought for parts. I want to complete at last one MOC next year.
  • Speedman29Speedman29 Brickswell CloseMember Posts: 1,194
    • Hoping to get Assembly Square early in the year, then I need to rearrange my current modular street layout to fit it in.
    • After that some of the Batman Movie sets look nice.
    • Not much catching my eye from City yet, but who knows.
    • Still need to get the Claas tractor and maybe the little Volvo from Technic.
    • Try and gather more of the SW Rebels sets
    • The IDEAS fishing store looked great, lets see how the finished article looks. But it'll probably need a nice boat to go with it!
  • wunztwicewunztwice Oregon, USAMember Posts: 25
    I didn't hear about the color parts sets. Beyond those, probably just the Assembly Square and possibly the Caterham or VW Beatle.
  • dragon114dragon114 United StatesMember Posts: 632
    the fishing boat, the catamaran and pizza truck
  • LordmoralLordmoral Puerto RicoMember Posts: 235
    The Pizza Van looks interesting.
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,431
    Will Assembly Square be my first modular?

    NO! Because I have a system, dammit!

    For me, Assembly Square, the pizza van, the dragster transporter (more for the truck and trailer than for the dragster), the ATV racers with truck, possibly the fishing boat, and hopefully the Episode VII Millenium Falcon and theRogue One U-wing if they're available at a significant discount. I'm also keen to see what the UCS snowspeeder looks like. And I'll seriously consider the fishing store as well.

    For my girls, possibly some of the next wave of Elves.
  • IceCreamCloneIceCreamClone Chicago-ishMember Posts: 70
    I've never been too interested in city, but I must admit that the pizza van looks awesome! Definite purchase for me.
  • Jern92Jern92 MalaysiaMember Posts: 782
    - Assembly Square
    - Old Fishing Store
    - City Pizza Van
    - Disney Castle (if I can ever afford it)
  • ryjayryjay Member Posts: 977
    I think 2017 will be as close to zero as it has ever been.   The sets I actually like, I'd never spend that much for a lego set, and for the smaller sets, I would have little use for them other then as gifts.

    It's actually easy to say since my kids have grown away from lego, and I have no like or desire to build legos myself...I  enjoy looking at the sets, and seeing what others do with them, but as far a me building and displaying them in my house....not happening.

    Am I wrong, or 2017 city sets have some creativity deficit? So far, Is just more of the same, without really innovations (maybe, except the pizza van and the motorbike with sidecar on 60143)
  • brumeybrumey AustriaMember Posts: 994
    not really digging the new city line

    First half year City sets are usually fairly repetitive, and some of that is inevitable considering that Police is a mainstay and there's already over a decade of City sets covering other types of subject matter. That said, I don't feel like the pizza van is the only creative thing on display. The #60151 dragster is one of just two in the LEGO City theme to date, and looks decidedly unlike the previous one (in #60049). And the #60145 Buggy is the first of its kind in the City theme.

    Police may be really repetitive as a concept, but this is the first year there's been a car carrier in the police subtheme, and it's only the second double-decker car carrier in the City theme. Banks are also a rare sight in LEGO City — #60140 is just the second after #3661, and the architecture is very different (less modern, more stately).

    Besides stuff that's genuinely new or rare subject matter, I also think there's a lot of creativity in how even the more familiar subject matter is being realized. The truck in 60151 looks pretty unique, and there are a few sets making great use of newer parts like the Nexo Power tiles to create unique hood/bonnet shapes for trucks.

    This might be a dopey question but when are the, 2017 sets actually released? Is it Jan 1st? Or do they sneak out earlier? I can remember going to a tru on Dec 31st 1999 and buying a couple of new sets that had ©2000 on them and I had to buy them because the Year 2000 was the 'future'. Basically what I want to know is any chance for Xmas? Really want wonder woman set.

    It varies. Sometimes they're out earlier, but whether or not that's intentional varies by location and by theme.

    In the United States, a handful of the Super Hero Girls and LEGO Batman Movie sets are confirmed to be coming out on Sunday, November 27th. But there's been no such confirmation for the UK as far as I'm aware.

    Everyone seems to be very excited about the pizza van. Why's that?

    Came here for this. Have to pass on some really nice sets to be able to afford this one. But it will be worth it.
  • AanchirAanchir United StatesMember Posts: 2,768
    With finalized pics of more sets surfacing, I've been able to fine-tune my wish list some. Of Ninjago sets, I'm definitely planning on getting #70625, #70626, and #70627, with #70623 and #70624 falling in the "maybe" pile.

    From Nexo Knights, I'm thinking I'll want all the battle suits, but everything else might wait until Toy Fair so I get a sense of what's coming in the summer. In spite of Nexo Knights really wowing me with many of the sets and with the books like "The Book of Monsters", I'm still not quite as enthused with it as with Ninjago.

    If Elves gets a March release like it has these past couple years, it may still be some time before we get finalized pics from that theme, but I don't totally mind because again, waiting until after New York Toy Fair to plan purchases can often make things easier.

    i like the colorscheme of the ninjago baddies...

    they will go well with my nexo monsters!

    Well, another year almost goes by is and we are stating to get new official images of upcoming sets. This list will only have sets revealed by LEGO for release during 2017, no leaks please as there are people that would love to be suprised when the announcements happen and not all leak news are true:
    Lego City:
    -60136 Police Starter Set (the ATM machine is expectacular and the set has a nice balance with figures to populate both Lexcorp and Extremis);
    -60140 Bulldozer Breakdown (a bank that is price attainable, a different colored bulldozer, new female police hair/hat, needs MOC however to complete the bank);
    -60147 Fishing Boat (a nice civilian addition to my city to add variety);
    Some good shouts. City theme looks to be on for a strong year.

    on that boat though. We've had loads of speedboat/cruiser type things over the years. I got excited when I saw the name as was hoping for a proper fishermans tugboat type set

    wouldve had more playability too, potentially with a net and octopus/shark. Movable winch etc etc

    Guys, I've got to admit... he said back in the day that he'd always hoped to find a girl to combine Lego with, but his childhood Lego is still mostly in the wooden box it came over from the Netherlands in... :P Admittedly, this may be partly due to the endless nature of my attempt to sort MY childhood Lego in the attic. I will update you as/when any of that changes!

    Not sure how I got roped into Nexo Knights. Probably lack of will power and a love for Castle or anything resembling Castle. Hunting scurriers now for a "red" army!!  My wife however would like me to "get in there and sell, sell, sell!"

    I seem to have put a whole load of sets on my wanted list without any knowledge of how they look. I resign myself to slowly taking them off as the year progresses... Or just buying them anyway...
