I can see lots of great sets recommended.
Three have caught my eye recently:
• 10193: Medieval Market Village
• 2507: Fire Temple
• 7066: Earth Defense HQ
I'm sold on these so I don't need any more convincing but I think this could be a useful discussion thread for recommending the best of the best.
As you can see I'm not following any particular theme. But these are good examples of great sets that aren't too pricey. (meaning I'm sure we'd all like all the modulars & all the master builder sets if money was no object)
Apologies if this is rehashing old ground. (I did search around to see if I could find a similar thread.)
