    #41015 Dolphin Cruiser. I love the look. Checked the instructions and the build looks good. If I throw the mini dolls overboard and swap out the pink plates can I get away with it?

    But the two 'pull back racer' sets, #42010 and #42011 I just can't get any enthusiasm for. Silly thing to say about Lego, but they seem like toys, rather than construction sets.

    The completist in me says 'It's less then £30 for the pair, just go and buy them!', but I don't know.

    Lego making toys? Never!

    Are you not tempted just so you can build the combined model though? I know I was when I saw the instructions (although ironically I also can't bring myself to buy these!)

    You have a point. The dragster does look pretty cool...

    /suspects he will have them before too long...

    Haunted House and Orthanc. Would love them, but $180+ on a LEGO set just isn't going to happen right now. Though I own several sets that cost more than that, it isn't a good time financially right now :(

    Me too :X looking forward to helping my gf build it. I think it's the best Friends set so far. Next after would be Olivia's House and the High School.

    If I want a set, I'll get it.
    Now what Ill PAY for it is a different matter..
    I want the Constitution train set but not for 99.99 for example.
    I think that is going to be the general feeling here..
    It is not a matter of 'want' it is a matter of 'how much' IMO

    I'm kind of like this with the Modulars. I want them, but other than the enjoyment of the build I don't know if I really get a kick out of owning them. There's just a "sameness" to the line that is a bit stagnate. If they would think out of the box a little and give us buildings that don't necessarily have to stack next to one another it could open up different Architectural styles.

    Being a LOTR fan I'm always switching back and forth with deciding to have the entire line - my problem are the larger "evil" sets such as moria, goblin king, orc forge and similar. Orthanc is a no-go.
    I'll want the ewok village, but I don't see myself paying so much for a set...

    #10189 Taj Mahal - unless my fantasy of arriving at a garage sale and seeing one that someone got as a gift and never built it and doesn't have a clue. My fantasy expands as I buy it for their measly asking price of $20, then return after building the magnificent 100% intact set and give them an extra $100 just to be fair. LOL.


    @boba_jagada2 As a LOTR fan, if you are going to get one "evil", get #9473 Mines of Moria - only set with Boromir and Pippin. You might pick one up on a good sale. The Orc Forge has cool baddies, but the build was a bit bleh. Goblin King was a disappointing brown bore to me, but YMMV.

    ^ $20? I'm sure you could haggle them down to $15 ;)

    Lets see.....
    All the modulars
    The Death Star
    Orthanc and all the other LOTR/Hobbit sets I don't own
    The list could go on forever. (Because by the time I finshed typing, LEGO would have shown us more sets I want but won't buy.)

    2 x more Uruk-hai army (wall extenders and army expanders for my Helms Deep) (http://www.brickset.com/detail/?set=9471-1).

    Have one... Want three... but there are too many other interesting sets on the want-list!
