My list is quite small but expensive :(
Cafe Corner (brick linking at present and am missing 20 pieces - these last pieces bring tears to your eyes)
Store Opening CMFs from Liverpool / Manchester / Sheffield / Stratford / Munich / Glasgow
Harry Potter Hagrids Hut - 3rd Edition
Winter Village Toy Shop
Polybags - Jor-El / White Bona Fett and Chrome Vader
Early pirate ships
Plus some of the current and upcoming new sets!
It's all about finding the early sets at a reasonable price when there is enough disposable income to be able to buy without later regrets.

I would get any other Hogwarts Castle too, but price isn't much different anyway. :(
Of course I want a lot other things too, but Hogwarts Castle was something which I've always wanted.
One of the problems I'm having is that I started down the modular route with the GE, but struggling with the decision to take it further. When I have other themes I like to collect (particularly SW, with huge exclusives coming out twice a year), it puts me in the horrors to tot up the price of the remaining modulars that are on the market. The GE looks nice on its own, but it's hard not to see it as incomplete.
For SW, I've been making googley eyes for the SSD lately, as I mentioned in another thread. I also want to get R2D2, but I'll likely have more time to pick him up.
For Superheroes, it's all about Batman for me. I mostly want the minifigures here; there are only two actual sets I want, which are the Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape (which can't have too much of a shelf life left) and Arkham, which I have ages to worry about yet.
Prioritising is hard!
I would say UCS Falcon but that ship has sailed for me and I am focusing on the obtainable.
Pretty sure I'll be picking up the rest of the Modulars. Fire Brigade is the only one currently in our home.
And yes, the Star Wars sets just keep coming. Thankfully I managed to get some bigger ones out of the way early (DS,SSD,IS,B-W) and now I just have as far back as R2 to grab. But that's still R2, X-Wing and now EV.
Just ordered Arkham Asylum yesterday and only have the Superman sets to complete everything from this year. But I may have to draw the line somewhere on the superheroes if they keep releasing as many as they did the past 2 years.
I've completely ignored LOTR, TMNT, and more recently Lone Ranger sets. They are all great themes but I just can keep up.
Ninjago to a big chunk of last years Lego budget as well. But I THINK we may be finished with that theme (for now anyways).
Of the current sets
#31012 family house
#31010 tree house.
Unless these are exclusives, I will buy these at Fred Meyer. :-)
Yet to be released
The Winter Village Market, the Friends Dolphin Cruiser and High School.
I have all the creator houses except the aforementioned ones and the #4954.:-) I set them up like a neighborhood come Christmas time and decorate with micro LED lights.:-) Good Luck with your Lakefront community, it will look great.
I had, at one point, all the LOTR sets in the "build" pile, but I have now moved them to the sell shelves. No time, no space.
If I find TMNT on clearance, I'll pick some up for my youngest son in case he wants them, but otherwise ignore.
Lone Ranger? Western town theme is cool, but no time or space. Will get the train, we love trains! :)
Current sets wish list includes #10218 Pet Shop, #10224 Town Hall, #10232 Palace Cinema (I have FB and GE), #10234 Sydney Opera House, and #10235 WVM
Now with the SW rehash machine churning away I hope to see maybe a few of the sets I missed first time reappearing in the future.
Now as I'm getting better at justifying the price of Lego the choice I have to make is pick up retired sets while prices are still climbing or wait for possible re-releases.
they keep climbing in price
At some point in the past, I thought I had to have GG and CC, but for the ongoing price, I realize that I would rather get 6 or more custom-made modulars instead (or save that money for newer sets, or army building).
I guess my wish list right now, if I'd be permitted to fantasize, would be thus:
Kai's Blade Cycle
Ultra Sonic Raider (All four ZX ninjas and stuff)
Elemental robe Zane/Cole/Jay and their elemental swords
More of the old ninja figs from the late '90s. I loved 'em so much when I got them back in the day.
I guess I'd want more Chima stuff too? Twin Bike or whatever. My wishlist is boring because I'm not really into huge sets nor Star Wars.
Oh, there is one thing, though: I would want a giant pile of the space Orcs from Minifigs S9. Yes please! (Yeah sure Lego, call 'em "alien avengers". We both know you like Warhammer 40k a bit too much!) But that would be pretty expensive for figs I'd probably just keep lined up or in a pile.
My wishlist now is for a bigger house.
I think it's a great train to modify for a Christmas Train for the WV town. That stage coach could also fit in nicely to a WV scene as well.
The ever growing list grows a little more.
#1 Grand Carousel
#2 Market Street
That's enough on my list lol.....evwntually will BL both hopefully :)
#8089 Hoth Wampa Cave
#9489 Endor Battle Pack (x2)
#9516 Jabba's Palace
#75005 Rancor Pit
#75009 Snowspeeder & Hoth (x2)
#75011 Tantive IV & Alderaan (x2)
#75014 Battle of Hoth
#50011 The Battle for Helm's Deep
There are also some City sets I have in mind for my son:
#60015 Coast Guard Plane
#60020 Cargo Truck
#60025 Grand Prix Truck
I have all the creator houses except the aforementioned ones and the #4954.:-) I set them up like a neighborhood come Christmas time and decorate with micro LED lights.:-)
I really enjoy my WV sets at Christmas time, but your Creator house neighborhood also sounds wonderful. Would you share some pics please?

I like most my 3 Modular Houses: Market Place, Green Grocer and Cafe Corner. As the Firebrigade came i stopped because of space and i dont really like it. The new Cinema is cool and the Death Star. But i have to sell other sets to get money and space for that.
Now i just collect Minifigures, they are small, lovely and not so expensive ;)
If anyone has some special prints, marketing Minifigures or other rare ones to offer, please contact me. Thanks
Its not the best layout nor the best pics:-) And I bet others can do better.
The WV cottage is still sealed, will add it this Christmas.:-)
