Castle 1996 ditto
Fantasy Era and Castle themes after...
(+ some other castle stuff)
CMFs (no Mr. Gold, or GB Olympics)
(getting tired of these and will probably just concentrate on the must-haves)
Getting there with
LOTR and Hobbit
(but don't really want to bother with Azog and the likes
plus I also don't like some sets so it probably won't go anywhere near 100%
as I would prefer to e.g. get the ewok village for my forestmen and elves
rather that the Orthanc...)
Monster Fighters <3
Hobbit/ LOTR <3
The Lone Ranger
Spongebob (figures <3)
Harry Potter 2010-2011
Star Wars 2012-2013
Can't include Superheroes because I'm in need of a Spidy and Superman set (not including exclusive figs Xp)
and CMFS Series 6/7/8/9/10 (No Mr Gold or Team GB)
Do you (not necessarily aimed directly at you @HarryPotterLover) have for example #5000644 in Monster Fighters. Do you have exclusive Azog for The Hobbit? Do you have the #LOTRSWORD sword from the Lego store, and the sticker sheets that you could win on the quest in store ...?
What people think of as complete is going to be different from person to person.
But right now, I'm one of only a few AFOL attempting to get the entire LOC range. It was only launched this year, but it hasn't stopped Lego pushing 50 sets out of it already. I probably will call it complete when I get the last 8 'proper' retail sets.
Right now, as it stands, my LOC collection is 78% complete (it's my second most complete collection, beating Ninjago sitting with 65%), including all winter wave sets (I'm yet to get any summer ones) and all but one of the polys, including the Brickmaster (missing #30255 that's all, anyone got one they don't want?).
But some people wouldn't consider my definition of 'complete' as theirs. There will be some that say "Well, hold on, The One Veyronian, surely your LOC collection is incomplete until you get all of them, including #6031640 and #6031641 which (imo) are the hardest to find" (actually, I'm wondering if anybody at all has either of those sets, I might take them off your hands)
Some may even extend the definition of 'complete' to Gear too. But I don't think many would regard that as part of a collection, that's a whole separate can of worms if you ask me. Best use Brickset's list to define what you still need to finish a collection. Even then, it's up to individuals to decide what is complete and what isn't ;-)
Just my 2 pence.
But actually, I don't mind that much, which is strange for me as usually I am quite the collector.
(Unless we're counting CMF, then 4-7 are complete :P)
Prince of Persia
Wired enough I don't really have the "completeist" inside. If there is a crummy set in a theme - I prefer not to have that set. Same with minifigures.
But I try and by a variety of Lego sets: #10217 (Detailed Buildings)
#10230 (Micro Buildings) and #8018 (Tank)
Collections come after because it the same things over and over again, however a particular theme I wanted to collect is Lego Harry Potter it never worked out I only got 5 Lego Harry Potter sets!!
I'm only a Bumblebee Girl (and a Mr Gold but I'm not worried about that) away from completing the CMFs as well.
Master Builder Academy
I don't complete much as it is rare that an entire line is worth owning. You have only so much space and $$. Also my modular line will be sold off soon, at least MS-GG anyhow.
Master Builder Academy
Marvel Super Heroes (pretty sure I have all of them)
My son has all the SpongeBob sets but he'd never admit to it.
Not necessarily a series but I also collect the exclusive figures from Comic-con and Toy Fair.
Friends (all boxed sets, all collectible animals). also have most polybags, but don't consider those essential to be "complete", as they are generally promotional items
after AC, I made the decision to only buy sets I like from future themes, not just buy all of them in order to be complete. Thus my Galaxy Squad, TLR, Monster Fighters, Dino, and others aren't complete by my own choice.
Outside of that I only buy what I like. It is very liberating not being bound to sets I really don't care for just to have a "complete" collection.
Lol, by analyzing on subtheme, i also have "Bricks and more - Accesoires" complete! It's my brickseperator! :P
Ninjago up to current release
Very close to having Pirates, Castle, mission to Mars, Indiana jones, and the modulars.
Fortunately I can cite a few complete sub-themes.
Lone Ranger, Monster Fighters, Rock Raiders, Vikings all at 100%
Space is next-highest at 81%
I try to get at least one example of any given theme (usually the smallest or "impulse" set). My only themes at 0% right now are:
PRINCE OF PERSIA
One of the few themes where all the sets rocked.
Also got all the 2007 Aqua Raiders. Animals, divers, boats and colours were great.
Harry Potter (All subthemes) 62 51 11 1 82% all sets, just no books
Pirates (All subthemes) 75 63 12 7 84%
Pirates of the Caribbean (All subthemes) 14 11 3 3 78%
Vikings (All subthemes) 7 7 0 0 100%!!!!!!!!!!
Western (All subthemes) 20 19 1 1 95%
