    Obviously we all love Lego here but what theme could you not do without? If you check out other members collections this does not necessarily tell you what there into. ( I have collected almost anything Lego) I thought it would be interesting to put your top 3 and then your least favorite.

    Mine are:-

    1) Star wars Lego
    2) Trains
    3) Modular buildings

    Least favorite

    1) Znaps
    2) Scala
    3) Knights Kingdom.

  • MrKevinHinkleMrKevinHinkle Member Posts: 33
    Top 3 favorite themes:

    1). Western
    2). Batman
    3). Star Wars

    Not sure on my least favorite... but LEGO Western is quite possibly the best theme of all time. Just stating the facts. ;)

    Top fave/all-time and got me out of the Dark Ages was the Indiana Jones line (specifically Temple Escape).
    Top 3 Favs...
    1 - Indiana Jones (God willing and the new movie will relaunch something again from this great line).
    2 - Agents (just love all the vehicles and playablility with the Robot and the Command Center as stand-outs).
    3 - Star Wars (Been a fan from day one and the vehicles are legendary).

    Least Favs...
    1 - Pirates (although I do LOVE the new Pirates of the Caribbean sets...lovely figs and color scheme).
    2 - Toy Story (should've just been made into Duplo sets...nothing really stands out).
    3 - Cars (...same as Toy Story above).

    Wow - tought to keep it to three, but if pushed i would say
    1 - Star Wars
    2 - Harry Potter
    3 - Trains

    Speacial mention for the Winter Village stuff, very small range but fantastic.

    Don't really have a least favorite, but there are a few line that hold no interest: Alien conquest, World Racers, Hero Factory
  • EricEric Member Posts: 376
    I really like:
    - Technic
    - Model Team
    - And probably the new Alien Conquest, they look awesome. :)
  • Bludchylde1Bludchylde1 Member Posts: 49
    Most favorite would be


    Least favorite are
    -Toy Story
  • sonsofscevasonsofsceva Member Posts: 542
    @legodad: I have never even seen the Agents line (dark ages) but it sounds brilliant.
    @Kevinhink: My 5 year old son (and huge lego fan) would agree with your assessments for sure! I have the old LEGO Chess game on an old PC and he loves the Western theme there. Superheroes and Legos together is a perfect match (so Avengers or Justice League sometime would be great!)

    As for me today:
    1. Modular buildings & Large builds
    2. The new City Space line (I like this more 'real' line, though overpriced, and the Satellite Launch Pad is a bit silly).
    3. Classic Castle and the new Kingdoms sets.

    No interest in World Racers, and some of the licensed stuff (PoP, for instance) seems a lttle thin on substance, but I can't say I thoroughly disdain any particular series that I have encountered.
  • andheandhe Member Posts: 3,940
    1. Wolfpack
    2. Wizards/witches
    3. Chefs

    Ok, so not strictly themes... But I just can't help buying them and seem to have amassed large amounts of each.

    Least favourite-
    Fright knights, clone troopers, galidor ;)
  • HuskerDontHuskerDont Member Posts: 32
    1. City/Town
    2. Trains
    3. Creator

    As you can see, I prefer the "real world" themes.

    The Toy Story and Cars sets don't really interest me. The Green Army Men set is probably the only set I wanted of the two themes. PoP and HP don't spark my interest. I was never really all that big on Technic either. Not that I didn't like it, I just didn't feel it went well with the sets I had.
  • llanowarsoldierllanowarsoldier Member Posts: 357
    Only Top 3? Man that is a hard choice, but here it goes:

    2.Modulars/Exclusives(ie. Winter Bakery, Maersk Train, etc)
    3.Creator(Houses only)
  • cloud0cloud0 Member Posts: 101
    1. Modulars
    2. Vikings!
    3. Big Scale Models
  • mackrelmackrel Member Posts: 75
    My top two thumbs up:

    3.Star Wars

    My "I don't understand the attraction"
  • war44lockwar44lock Member Posts: 75
    I was brought out of my "Dark Ages" in early 2010 by Star Wars Lego.

    My top three would have to be:

    1. Star Wars (original trilogy)
    2. Kingdoms and classic castle
    3. Pirates (classic more than modern)

    Least preferred would be:

    1. Bionicle
    2. Knights Kingdom
    3. Fright knights
  • BillBill Member Posts: 1
    My favs are:

    1. Blacktron 1
    2. Crusaders (from the 80s)
    3. The Space theme prior to Blacktron 1

    My least favs are:

    1. Anything licensed (Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, etc.)
    2. Knights Kingdom 1 + 2
    3. Anything being released lately
  • bmwlegobmwlego Member Posts: 819
    Three Themes to Treasure
    1-Modular Town Buildings-Green Grocer my fav from this theme so far
    2-Racers Tiny Turbos-Renegade my fav from the theme which for me combined the childhood love of Hot Wheels and LEGO!
    3-Space Police 3-Raid VPR being my favorite small LEGO set of my AFOL "career"

    Three Themes to "Trash"
    1-Bionicle and all their unpronounceable names!
    2-the large $12-$15 Racers sets whether they be pullback or step and pump cars. Tese sets are way overpriced for what little amount of parts you get.
    3-Ben 10-$15 for 8 or so parts? You kidding me?

    Also love Futuron and Legoland Town themes but they didn't make the list because there were only 3 slots.
  • vortexdragonvortexdragon Member Posts: 24

    1. Castle, specifically Dragon Knights from the early 90s
    2. Pirates (From the old 80s sets up to the new pirates, they're all awesome)
    3. Star Wars Episodes IV-VI

    As far as least favourite I can't really judge much but this is my crack at it:
    1. Bionicle
    2. Licensed sets that are marketed towards the younger crowd (Toy story, cars, etc)
    3. Space (too many weird parts that don't go well with Castle sets)
  • Bluefox1966Bluefox1966 Member Posts: 360
    Some great calls here, I forgotten how bad Galidor Lego was and that some AFOL hate the licenced themes. With a few exceptions it looks like most of us are on the same page when it comes to favorites.

    Keep them coming it's great to see members common interests.
  • legoDadlegoDad Member Posts: 529 that Kranx VPR moc/mod you made on Flickr. Very cool amigo.

    Usually Star Wars, but right now my favorite theme is Indiana Jones. I've been busy acquiring sets I missed out on in stores while I was focused on Star Wars. Those Indy sets now sell at quite a premium.
  • bmwlegobmwlego Member Posts: 819
    Thanks man. Loved Agents too. Want to do the same for that theme.
  • BrickBugBrickBug Member Posts: 14
    As far as I can remember, these are my top favorite themes.
    1. Star Wars
    2. Forestmen (It was a kind of Subtheme in the old LEGO Knights)
    3. Town (I loved this so much as a kid and still do)
  • Bluefox1966Bluefox1966 Member Posts: 360

    Forestmen is good call. I also liked the Robin Hood guys, especially the hideout set.
  • sonsofscevasonsofsceva Member Posts: 542
    I take back what I said about no interest in World Racers up above. I never really gave them a look since I am not into racecar motifs. But it is two teams blowing each other up!
    As a father to two young boys who are LEGO nuts, this is their dream: sup'ed up vehicles + fighting = awesome. Plus one team has flaming skull logos. How can we go wrong with flaming skulls? ;-) My interest is piqued. Too bad I didn't look closer during the TRU BOGO sale last month...
  • LusiferSamLusiferSam Member Posts: 574
    Top 3
    1. Castle
    2. Pirate
    3. Star Wars

    Bottom 3
    1. 4 Juniors/Jack Stone
    2. Galidor
    3. Znap
  • slovakiastephslovakiasteph Member Posts: 62
    Top 3...
    1. Creator... all the building possibilities!
    2. City... but not into the rescue-type buildings
    3. Kingdoms... but mostly sets like the MMV.

    In fact, those are really the *only* three genres I'm interested in. Yeah, so I'm weird. :) No SW here.

    So, what is your favorite lego theme of all time? I guess I'll go many to choose from......the original lego batman!
  • SupersympaSupersympa Member Posts: 534
    Lego Castle...not the one we see now...the REAL ones from the 80's! :)
  • legos4everlegos4ever Member Posts: 45
    Yes, what I would do to get my hands on those...
  • SupersympaSupersympa Member Posts: 534
    patience is a vertue...
    They pop some time to time on ebay/bricklink/brickset...
  • FurrysaurusFurrysaurus Member Posts: 156
    studio line, but only the monster sets. ah, sweet sweet monster hunter sets can't get here soon enough....
  • Brewer51Brewer51 Member Posts: 248
    ^ I can second that. Scary Lab is a great set.

    For me though it's adventurers. The one toy I went back to time and time again was my Sphinx Secret Surprise. I liked the Rock Raiders stuff too.
  • littletokilittletoki Member Posts: 519
    I have to go back to my childhood on this one as much as I love the current Modulars and Star Wars themes.

    Classic Space.
  • OldfanOldfan Member Posts: 706
    ^Seconded. Classic Space all the way!
  • cdm22cdm22 Member Posts: 7
    Star Wars now but definitely Classic Space from my childhood! I still moan at my mother to this day for her giving my lego away to a friends kid when i was a teenager!
  • Blue1dotBlue1dot Member Posts: 78
    I'd have to go with castles
  • ErnstErnst Member Posts: 133
    edited March 2012
    Castle no doubt with Pirates a good second.
  • DuchessaDuchessa Member Posts: 287
    The modulars are great, but I really love the old Western theme. I have all of the sets, and I really hope I can put them on display one day...
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ Member Posts: 4,179
    creator, by far, because they're built around what to me are 'true' lego values.
  • jadedancjadedanc Member Posts: 1,302
    Castles definitely! And I would add as a new AFOL, I would love to get the Viking sets personally, as well as the Modulars.
  • richoricho Member Posts: 3,830
    I would have to say Star Wars, as it's what got me back in to Lego a number of years back when I made an impulse purchase of the Snowspeeder in Woolworths. Must be nearly 10 years ago!
  • vader34mtvader34mt Member Posts: 88
    Star Wars now as an AFOL, but Pirates back when I was a kid
  • BrickDancerBrickDancer Member Posts: 3,639
    As a kid it was Classic Space with M-Tron and Black-Tron. As a reborn AFOL it is StarWars/New Space (City/Expedition/Rovers/Satellites). Guess my taste doesn't change much over the years...
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Administrator, Moderator Posts: 5,234
    @legos4ever - Please remember to look for an existing relevant thread before creating a new one. I have gone ahead and merged these. Thanks!

    I think the Indana Jones sets are quite under rated, so many scenes and ideas Lego did not make...
  • CCCCCC Member Posts: 20,526

    For me:
    1. CMF (OK, not really a theme, but they got me back into Lego).
    2. Knights / Castles.
    3. Star Wars (IV-VI only).

    I've found the CMF have really sparked creativity, with me building MOCs rather than following instructions.
  • graphitegraphite Member Posts: 3,275
    1. Pirate ships (original, IF, PotC)
    2. Trains
    3. SW
  • TheBigGuyTheBigGuy Member Posts: 69
    Star Wars for sure, it is what got me back intocollecting Lego as an adult. That is the only theme I am collecting at the moment, so I don' really have asecond favourite, although the Imperial Flagship from the recent Pirates theme is my favourite set.
  • SupersympaSupersympa Member Posts: 534
    @CCC i completely agree: Star Wars (IV-VI only). the real ones! ;)
  • LegoChiefLegoChief Member Posts: 21

    My top 3:
    1. Trains
    2. City
    3. Creator houses
  • The_Brick_BuilderThe_Brick_Builder Member Posts: 658

    1. City/Trains/Modulars
    2. Some Star Wars exclusives (10188, 7965, etc.)

    I don't really like any other themes.
