2020 LEGO sets to buy

LordmoralLordmoral Puerto RicoMember Posts: 294
Well now, LEGO sure surprised us with the announcement of two SW sets for next year. While I am interested in Ben Hut (need to check what I will do with another Ben, 3PO and Luke figures) I like another Tusken Raider added to my ranks. The Hut seems to be complete and that is a rarity for licensed sets as a whole. I am surprised we haven't gotten word of new summer and fall 2019 sets but as I understand the fall sets are largely: Rise of Skywalker, The Mandalorian and Jedi Fallen Order from what I have understand and as such under heavy compartment.

    I’m mostly interested to see two things:

    - 2020 Harry Potter wave
    - I’m really hoping there are non-brickheadz seasonal sets, especially for Halloween and Xmas (sets like #40122 and #40262

    I'm always interested in SW UCS and other waves. I've got just 3 modulars, but I'll be trying to catch up on those and will eventually get the 2020. Ideas sets have mostly become must buys. More Harry Potter sets would be great. BRICKHEADZ! Just about any that they release will be must buys.

    I really like the Bricktober minifigure sets. Harry Potter seemed like such a challenge to get at first, and then it was super easy. Marvel I got fairly easily. It would be fun seeing more unique minifigures like those.

    SumoLego, was the Marvel one you waved your first about? If you don't have it, I'm not a huge Marvel fan, so I'd be willing to part with mine for such a prolific forum poster as yourself.

    @autolycus - I've got a couple of each, but I appreciate the sentiment.  If there's a set you're after in exchange - just PM me.

    ^ Only Ben's Hut and Luke's Landspeeder from that SDCC announcement (I think). I know from the other thread that those two sets are having early release there. There might be leaks but those two are the only confirmed ones. I think safe to assume a handful might be based on Rise of Skywalker, including possible battle packs or micro fighters. The only exception to this rule so far in Disney's releases has been Solo which seems to have got the shaft very fast like Rogue One.

    Yeah ! I like that starwar set too! Even though the LEGO Star Wars Imperial Dropship – 20th Anniversary Edition (75262)isn’t considered a “Battle Pack,” I would certainly define it as one. This is currently the cheapest way to load up on the slightly updated Stormtroopers as well as the Shadow Trooper and the Dropship itself. The exclusive Han Solo minifigure is an added bonus to this Battle Pack. 
    I bought a light saber too! It's amazing for a starwar fan :3

    That seems to be in-line with how LEGO approaches their licensed movie properties - Marvel sets seem to get the same treatment.  There's one wave, and perhaps a straggler set six to eight months later.  Incredibles, Jurassic World and Toy Story 4 seem to have the same pattern as well.

    Strictly speaking, it appears LEGO would rather have a strong overall brand association, and not tied to a particular movie.  (Even if the movies are amongst the most popular.)  The march of 'general' Star Wars and Superheroes sets doesn't appear to be affected by movie releases.

    I bought two of that set and thr Clone Scout Walker, I opened one of each and left one in the case because I know I can make the other two worth money.

    I really like how Ideas has evolved.  In the first few years it seemed like a lot of missed opportunities as they passed on many unique and ambitious MOCs in favor of low budget soon forgotten vignettes and and pop culture quick fan bucks 

    but the last few years we’ve really seen Ideas evolve into a category that is now consistently putting out some of the absolute best sets of the year from any theme.  Big robust high price point sets that don’t feel scaled down or half complete, but truly UCS/Exclusive level of detail and ambition. 

    Ive scaled my LEGO purchases back an order of magnitude over the past 3 or 4 years, but I find my annual want list consists now of UCS SW, Most Creator Expert sets, one-off exclusives like the Hogwarts, and most Ideas sets. That’s high praise for Ideas from me, as someone who was very critical of the direction that program took in its first few years

    They still pass on some good ones (like Chemical Plant) but overall they managed to get the them to were it is supposed to go.

    well between chemical plant and treehouse, what is better for their image? All the toxic waste parts are made from plants.

    So true, they need a factory set and not a small open back one.

    -Shrimp Boat;

    My only 100% buy will be the Harry Potter sets. The near-100% buy will be whatever the Modular Building  set is and the Winter Village set.

    I'll also be interested in the Lego 'Adventure' type sets - that is, the City sub-themes like Coast Guard, Arctic, Jungle, Space. Will it be something new or a sub-theme we've seen? Will the sets be interesting enough to tempt me to buy them?

    I am also picked by whatever City adventure sub theme LEGO comes up with and let's see what we get.

    I love my threads as we get in super serious discussions like words miss spoken. I won't be talking about leaks here only official set reveals but I usually start these type of threads at the end of the year when a good chunk of sets has been revealed for next year.

    I saw the already deleted late 2019 SW sets images (some not all) and I am.interested in only a few that said, while the newly revealed UCS ISD was amazing I was left saddened at the lack of a Vader or interior (in micro scale) and I am leaning to get the UCS Millennium Falcon when I can.
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,541
    ^ Totally agree @Lordmoral - that ISD can wait (I already have one).
    For 2020 I am waiting with bated breath about the new Marvel, Overwatch & Speed Champions sets. Currently my wants list has practically all of those on it. And nothing else!

    I hear you, not to mention the upcoming SW sets (which I am eyeing two which are two: Death Star Cannon and Raider AT-ST) and that LEGO Allosaurus figure as well what location based sets Overwatch has next year (hope a factory is among them).

    Hi all, long time, no post, but still read the forum every day!

    Anyway, is there any indication yet whether LEGO are going to continue the City Space sets next year, with another line, or was that just a one-off?

    I've really enjoyed this sub-theme and just need to acquire #60229 Rocket Assembly &Transport and #40345 Mars Exploration Minifigure Pack to complete the current line-up.

    The city space sub theme will almost certainly be one and done like Arctic and volcano explorers etc before it. I'm still waiting for a good bargain before jumping in but I really want the launch center.

    I too have been really loving the space sub-theme as a whole! I grabbed most of the smaller sets already at the standard 20% off. I'll likely #60226 soon-ish and then will maybe pick up #60227 later.

    Honestly though, neither of the two big sets have really impressed me (the rockets, while large are primarily bland and empty) enough to give serious thought to buying them yet. Out of the two I like #60228 more though, so I might grab that one at a large discount.

    Amazon in the UK has had a couple of the smaller space sets at 40% off recently.  Haven't bought much non-technic or Starwars for a long time, but these are pretty cool and have picked up a couple.

  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,097
    I picked up the #60227 and #60228 at a good discount (33%+) from Amazon, so just looking for a good-ish discount on #60229, if I can find it, otherwise I may use some VIP points up.

    If, as you say @Bumblepants this is a one-off, that's fine by me.

    I actually really like the look of the rocket in #60229, not so much the one in #60228, but the Command Centre looks really good and I'm looking forward to building it (and putting my mobile phone in, with the dedicated app running!)

    I hope at least one or two sets are released, maybe LEGO saw how popular these were unlike the other sets.
  • LordmoralLordmoral Puerto RicoMember Posts: 294
    I can't believe I am about to say this but I may buy another LEGO SW set from the Sequel Trilogy (ST) if LEGO makes something that has been appering in trailers lately makes it to a set. For sure I will be purchasing the Raider AT-ST and Death Star Cannon sets as well anything good from Fallen Order (if they make them) for May the Fourth 2020.
