What LEGO-sets did you get for Christmas this year?

Someone has to start this thread, so I'll do it. Let's hear how our LEGO harvest is this year.

I can start, by telling that I got the 6858 Catwoman Catcycle City Chase. Not a big one, but it came from my wife, which (considering her rather moderate opinion of the my LEGO enthusiasm) warmed my heart.

Anyone else?

    #10224 Town Hall and #10218 Pet Shop.

    With the youngest getting his fill of SW (4 sets including #9515 Malevolence), #10229 Winter Village Cottage and various stocking fillers, we're a very happy household :-)

    A Lego free Christmas this year for me. Nothing out there left to get that I wanted at the "right" price. It's been a good year for my SW OT collection, maybe I should've held a set back to build over my almost 2 weeks off work. Enjoy your building everyone!

    two of the Hobbit sets for me, #79001 Mirkwood Spiders and #79003 Bag End, well excited to put them together later.

    We also got the new Spiderman and Daily Bugle set, and (don't shoot me) my other son has a couple of the deadly 60 COBI sets - great 16x16 trans blue plates, I notice...

    I didnt get much other then my favorite minifigure the conquistador (I am Spanish). My son got a the spiderman dock ock set and also the spidey venom set. He also received a small ninjago set and the catwoman chase. Should be fun building with him.

    In a short while, once my boy wakes up, he will find out that he has: #4635 fun with vehicles, #60002 fire truck, #4433 dirt bike transporter, and #7346 seaside house. At 4yrs he will be able to build the fist three with close supervision, but i may be forced to build the last one for him. Woe is me. I hope to have #10218 pet shop for myself. My wife had me get it on brick friday and at least I hope I am the one to receive it.

    Only lego for me this Christmas was a Darth Vader minifigure torch, but my 2 boys got Ninjago, Lord of the Rings and City sets which we are happily building our way through, already built Ninjago sets 9445 and 9447.
  • BarneyBPBarneyBP Member Posts: 35
    An Unexpected Gathering. Really looking forward to putting it together when i'm back home - that's sort of the biggest bummer of celebrating Christmas at a house other than your own!
  • Flash88Flash88 Member Posts: 7
    Nothing new, but uncovered all my old collection while at my parents. Can't wait to get stuck in to it all again!
  • graphitegraphite USMember Posts: 3,241
    I got Haunted House and the Ghost Train.

  • Bosstone100Bosstone100 USAMember Posts: 1,394
    I got $40034 Xmas train, #30151 bull dozer, #30181 Creator heli, #6867 Cosmic Cube, #9349 Education fairy tale minifig set, #5749 basic brick set, #70704 Vermin Vaporizer and #10220 VW Camper.. oh the Lego calendar.

    I bought my brother Helm's Deep and my son got the Duplo train and a basic brick set.
  • LegoFanTexasLegoFanTexas TexasMember Posts: 8,409
    My 2 year old son received several Duplo sets, including Tigger which he loves.

    My 4 year old daughter received several Friends sets, including the new Heartlake Pool, which she loves because she loves the water.

    My 7 year old son received the Ninjago Final Battle series (70501-70505), because he is nuts about Ninjago.

    My wife received the Grand Carousel (#10196) because it is pretty and colorful and because she can build it with the kids and then take them on a real one.
  • BrikingBriking Dorset, UKMember Posts: 748
    Sorting through the SW sets my youngest got, his Xmas suddenly took a turn for the worse. Not only did he get 2 duplicate #9498. It shouldn't have been on his list to start with as he's already got it! Silly boy.

    Anyway, the bank of mum'n'dad stepped in to buy - at RRP (hmmm...) So whilst he now, with Xmas money, and saved pocket money can just about scrape a Millenium Falcon, I've ended up with the beginning of the problem I swore would never happen...

    #9498 x 2
    #3300014 x3

    My re-selling days will start in another year or 3... LOL

    Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Must have been a naughty boy this year.
  • CrownieCrownie WA StateMember Posts: 228
    I received An Unexpected Gathering (#79003), 2 copies of Escape from the Mirkwood Spiders(#79001), The Orc Forge(#9476), Shelob Attacks(#9470), Gandalf Arrives (#9469), Weathertop (#9472), and 2 DK Books - Harry Potter: Building the Magical World, and Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.

    My family's awesome.

    (Ooh, and a $50.00 LEGO Gift Card from my brother and sister.)
  • carlqcarlq Ruislip Manor, MiddlesexMember Posts: 792
    Nothing at all, unless you count my small but successful self-bought haul at Lego Store Watford yesterday and the eBay-won #30161 Batmobile poly which arrived in yesterday's post...
  • cheshirecatcheshirecat Member Posts: 5,332
    None for me :( but kids got a house full, cargo and passenger train, station, track etc, gold mine, skiff and membership, batmobiles so far. More to come tomorrow and probably more bought with money they got. The motor on the passenger train seems a bit iffy but otherwise a couple of great sets.

    Well I do not know if you are jesting here, but I will say people have far worse Christmas' in this world than getting a duplicate toy. Did they at least have the receipts with them? If so then his Christmas simply is not over yet.. return the toys, tell him what he can spend to get another toy (hopefully they got them at a B&M store).

    Does this count what I bought myself this Christmas season? LOL

    I got my one nephew the Warg set, the other the Beach House, and a couple of Idea books for both, as well as the Parking garage for both of them for their town.
    My brother got the Mines of Moria set and my Sis in Law is getting the MF mad scientist set.

    That is the gift that keeps on giving to be honest, the discovery of what sets you had in the past and bringing back old memories is just as good as getting a new set sometimes.

    Just remember Bricklink... you will most likely need it for your old sets :-)
  • TockoTocko Member Posts: 24
    My three year old got #8486. I put it together for him (he helped on a few occasions, like assembling the tires). He just loves the set. He also got #9478 which is riding on Mack's trailer roof.

    We broke out the duplo train sets we had been saving for our 1 year old (I can't belive we waited so long to open it, it's great fun) loads of Cars sets for our 4 year old and this years monster truck racers, the Mrs got some friends sets she didn't know she wanted and I finally (after numerous unsubtle hints) got Jabba's Palace. Thank you Santa!

    I did slip a couple of CMFs in to our boys stocking only to be told "Santa must have put these here as a mistake, as these are for you Daddy"!
  • herekittykittyherekittykitty Member Posts: 122
    We had an excellent Lego morning here. :)

    I got:
    Life of George
    Big Ben
    White House
    Mini modulars (really excited about these)
    Pet shop (from Walmart sale so I knew about it)
    VW Bus (knew about this too)

    Husband got:
    Sith Fury Interceptor
    Tie Fighter
    Poly bag in his stocking

    Daughter (6yo):
    Cars Mack Truck
    Friends Beauty Salon
    4207 City Garage
    Friends Brickmaster Book
    Friends cat's playground bag in stocking
    CMF fairy in stocking

    Son (2.5yo)
    Cars ultimate build Francesco
    Polybag in stocking
    Yellow cargo train built and set up from Santa (really for all of us, and my husband and father in law has been playing with it all morning!)

    My daughter can build all of hers on her own, my son's will be built for him and he'll play with it until it falls apart - then we will rebuild. Win-win.

    Lego Stores also refund full price gift cards when you return an item without a reciept.

    Well at least they used to. It's been a while since I tried.

    I got the Town Hall set, new 2013 cement mixer, Octan fuel truck, little red/blue race car, and fire fighter motorcycle set. :D

    I got told something similar when I suggested I might treat myself to an SSD if I see one reduced to less than £250. The missus had seen one in the flesh when we were in Prague the weekend just gone and was shocked at the size of it.

    I got nothing and got told I am banned from buying any more lego.

    I'm almost at this point. Got nothing (although I didn't ask) and was told some organization needs to occur before the collection can get bigger. Can't say it's a bad rule set though. I came out of my dark ages likes bat out of...

    ^Although Jabba's Palace and MMV are waiting in the closet to be built, so they are really my gift to myself I suppose.

    I am pretty happy with my "haul" :-)

    I got An Unexpected Gathering and The Goblin King Battle. I'm quite pleased and thankful for my thoughtful sister and mother for getting me each of those sets, respectively. I might do some selfish shopping of my own this weekend, but it looks like this was the year for Tolkien-inspired sets to take down the Star Wars juggernaut that has pretty much dominated my collecting since the fall of BIONICLE. We'll see what the new year brings.

    @Monkeyhanger and @Yodalicous I got told we have no more space for it. My arguement as always is 'well you agreed to that not me'.
  • LegobrandonCPLegobrandonCP CanadaMember Posts: 1,909
    CASH. To spend on LEGO, of course. :)
  • monkeyhangermonkeyhanger Member Posts: 2,835
    ^ My collection has mushroomed in the last year, but it's still modest compared to a lot of photos seen here (it is only OT SW). There is a room in the house which is just for the main computer, a 40" telly with Bluray/Xbox/Surround sound, a small sofa, and it has my Lego in it. The wife is never in here, except for the few weeks she was doing Xbox Kinect before the novelty wore off. I suppose one way to do it would be to rotate the displays, but I was always planning on putting up 2 more shelves.

    @Monkeyhanger I dont tend to display my models they usually get broken up and then part sorted. But as I live at home it all has to be stored in my room. Its my MOCs that tend to take up the space. Currently Helms Deep is taking up my bedroom top.
