I wonder why nostalgia is such a big factor.
well, my sets were most of the time broken for my mocs, so I think I may have better memory of the minifigs. I remember I loved the original darth maul, but lego has done much better since then.
Mine would have to be 6973 - Deep Freeze Defender. Got it for christmas from my parents and I still have all the pieces. So much fun building that set, and it was my biggest set at the time.Close second is 10224 - Town Hall. My favourite modular, my favourite modern set and I think I have built this one 4 times...Also, great topic
I look very fondly on lots of sets for various reasons, but the real jewel for me is #10188, the Death Star playset version. I'm more a Trekkie but I love the OT, and that set has basically every significant scene on the Death Star all in one package - I moved an open-backed shelf out perpendicular to the wall just so I could have it visible from the full 360 degrees, because there's not a single room in it that I can't look at and think "Yeah, that was cool." Great minifig assortment too - I've added a few more (filling up the conference table, for instance, with Vader choking Motti while the others watch and Tarkin scowls at him), but for the most part it came with everyone needed to fully populate the set. Not a cheap set, but worth every cent.
It has to be my ucs super star destroyer. Its my most expensive set.
Its not my favorit set btw,that would be maybe the vw van. If I want show a non lego building friend something from lego I always show them the van and everyone loves it,its just so well designed and the object (the vw van) appeals to almost everyone.
If I could only have 1 lego model and get rid of everything else then I would probably keep the vw van most likely,though the ghost busters lego ideas set would make it a difficult choise , and i basicly don't even like cars. Its just based on the quality of the design and how much the theme is appealing for me.
Now, if you are talking about a complete train set, I guess you would have to throw out those two :)
