Now that 2016 sets images have been released what do you think them? I'm starting to really like nexo knights I've defently changed my mind about it. Bionicle and creator bth look great. City the same as usual and star wars buildafigures are a hit and miss. But what you guys think?

    Very little interest. There are two sets I have interest in, and I'm still waiting to see what Elves will have and for the second part of 2016, where I am hoping for FB/HP.

    Bionicle looks intense! New gold-colored parts, bright new sword pieces, and Umarak is awesome! Definitely looking forward to that series the most.

    I think Nexo Knights will be kinda cool; the King's Mech especially looks exciting to me.

    @CircleK I am a fan of the 3n1 "buildings", but it's strange that they're releasing a new lighthouse when #5770 was only 4 yrs ago, and a new treehouse when #31030 is still available.   Also, the lakeside lodge looks like a smaller version of #31025

    Corner Deli looks good though, so not all is lost :).

    I think you meant #31010 for the current Tree house.

    lol, some of the sets are hilarious, like ultimate robin has a chicken on his armour and comes with 2 chicken legs, the fat dirty criminal in city or the barbecue stand that took fire in the fire station.

    I'm just aiming for the Brick Bank, Big Ben, and maybe the Firehouse Headquarters if I have any extra money after all that.

    Yeah I missed out on the last version of the lighthouse and I'm hoping this one is just as good or better. As far as the current treehouse - idk... For whatever reason I'm just not a fan. I'm looking forward to seeing a different take on it. And I get what you're saying about the lodge and mountain hut or even the cabin before that but I appreciate the subtle differences. That brick built moose is pretty cool.

    from what I saw they may be closer to the ender dragon than to ninjago's ones. I think they had moulded heads though.

    I notice a certain involution trend about City theme. Vehicles are no more good like the previous except for the racing ones, and buildings are few and something bizarre. It seems like the theme has already reached its apex 1-2 years ago.

    This.
    Not keen on Nexo Knights, maybe when a larger set is revealed. A shame about the city islands not including any blue plates to make it actually look like an island.

    Lego should really start to sell blue and white baseplates.

    The new Elves dragons have me curious. Too bad there are no pictures.
    That's what I thought until I saw the images. They look more like the dragons from "How to Train Your Dragon" and didn't look brick built but just molds. =/

    A few very nice creator sets.

    Like others I have been amazed by the ocean explorer. Its a small set but it looks amazing and it uses a very interesting building techniques. Exactly what I am looking for with small creator sets. This set is one of the best small creator sets in years!

    I have grown to like lego animals and am more or less collecting them so the dog+ducks and the reindeer will be a must. Am still not 100% sold on their looks but it is difficult to make animals look good with a small amount of pieces and they are all cute.

    The small creator house/café/store. I bought 2 of those sets last year,the bike shop and the toy shop/super market. One of them had a good sub build,the news paper stand,but the main builds and other builds are not that great. This years set looks even a bit worse imo,they are a sort of modular for younger people and I just don't like them anymore somehow. Will not be getting these anymore unless it has an amazing sub build like the news paper stand.

    The lake cabin. This is a sort of sub series in the creator set. Every year has a cabin like building. I have the one from last year and will probably be getting this one as well,they kinda cute though they do lack substance for me.

    Was very pleased as well to see a new lighthouse,am curious how it will look.

    The brick bank,much has been said about this already. Modulars are amongst my favorit lego sets but this set is not my favorit. I love modular buildings to be one building. The detective office was an amazing set that is one of my favorits. It are different buildings but they match very well. The brick bank is 2 buildings that imo do not match,the laundry takes away from the grandeur of the bank and the building does not feel to be in good harmony. I do love the architecture of the front of the bank though and the inside I like as well,even the chimney others find a waste I find a nice touch. Still bit in doubt about this one but as I have gotten the last 4 buildings it almost feels like a must.

    Ghostbusters building. Was looking forward to this very much based on the well known moc from a swiss builder. When I saw more pictures of it I found it a bit disappointing and clearly worse then the moc. Was already looking for an excuse to not have to spend 400$ on 1 set so I don't mind it that much:)

    New architecture sets are amazing.This theme is becoming stronger and I think the quality is very high. Only got 2 sets so far but will definitely be getting more. New York cityscape and the possibly new York land mark are my favorites.

    I'm excited for a lot of the Friends sets.  There seems to be a nice range of subject matter covered,  which I prefer to single-minded waves like Jungle or Pop Star (both of which I have very little of,  because it all looks so samey to me).  
    Palace Pets has annoyingly reached out to me with its cuteness and made me want them. 

    My main areas of interest of Elves and Superheroes, with a side of Ninjago,  ave not had pictures published yet so I'm still eagerly anticipating those,  as well as the next series of CMFs (regular and Disney).

    The torsos, tails, and legs are entirely brick-built. Only the heads and wings are specialized molds. I think they look incredibly elegant from the prelims and can't wait until finalized pictures are released! In general, I feel like next year's Elves sets continue to bring their A-game!

    I'm definitely excited about next year's Elves, Ninjago, and Bionicle sets and trying, perhaps in vain, not to get too excited about Nexo Knights. I'm starting to think it's inevitable that I will end up getting at least a few Nexo Knights sets, although how much I like the story will play a big role in determining whether I collect it with a passion like I do with those other themes or just get occasional sets like I did with Chima and Ultra Agents.

    The new Star Wars buildable figures look pretty cool in their own right, but my main interest in those is strictly for parts. The human head sculpts (at least, the ones without headgear) could be useful for building MOCs of human characters, and there are also a lot of nice recolors in some of the sets.

    I'm not too impressed by most of the sets next year, except the Brick Bank, Firehouse Headquarters, New York City and the Burj Khalifa!

    Of the themes with new images, Creator wins for me. I think the initial wave in 2015 was better, but just barely. The ship with submarine is great, and being able to build a larger submarine as a secondary model is genius.

    I'm generally pretty ambivalent toward CCBS themes, but the new Bionicle sets look very nice. They seem more finished and visually cohesive as a theme than last year's sets. I don't see myself buying any, simply because building large figures doesn't particularly interest me, but I'm pretty impressed by them.

    While I think the dragons look pretty good, I don't know that I'd call them elegant. Their bodies in the preliminary images look pretty blocky. Whereas the Ninjago dragons look fluid and lithe, these seem more chunky. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, though. They look friendly and whimsical, which is probably at least part of what the designers were going for.

    Based on the preliminary images, they do look good. But I like the initial 2015 wave better for its variety. Like @LostInTranslation, I tend to dislike waves that go "all-in" on a subject. Dragons are fine, but I think they're a bit cliché and lose their impact when they're so numerous. That only one of the sets isn't dragon-centric is a disappointment. I also like the more neutral colors of the previous wave. I'm okay with pink and purple foliage, pink and purple accents, etc., but stonework and wooden doors in Medium Lavender comes across as too "girlified" to me.

    Like LostInTranslation, I'm looking forward to the Friends sets, but I really like the subthemes, especially those that are focused on something other than shopping or going out to eat :-)  Hence I'm looking forward to the Adventure Camp ones, but hoping they're not too similar to the Jungle theme.  The supermarket should be really interesting.  

    Also can't wait for the Architecture series, and those Elves dragons.
  • chuxtoyboxchuxtoybox Member Posts: 711
    I like the Lakeside Lodge. 

    I started collecting Mixels so I'm going to buy all the new ones.

    Prison Island looks interesting and I really like the Crooks Island just for the BURPS.

    I like all the evil Nexo Knights stuff and I'm definitely buying Ultimate Lavaria. I hope one of the unknown ultimates is Axl.

    I started collecting Ninjago this year so I'm looking forward to all the new sets. Looks like there's going to be a lot! I'm even being tempted by the Dimensions stuff and I don't have Dimensions. I really like the minibuild of Sensei Wu's dragon.

    Have to buy the new CMFs and looking forward to Disney's.

    Not a priority but a lot of the Bionicle looks cool.

    I don't heavily collect SW but I'm definitely getting the Carbon Freezing Chamber. The Galactic Empire Battle Pack is interesting. I like the red Stormtrooper.

    I really want to see what the Batman Classic TV Series Batcave looks like and the price. Sets like this make me wonder if LEGO ideas really is affecting what LEGO is coming up with even if they don't use anyone's entries. Would LEGO ever have thought to get licensing for Back to the Future and Ghostbusters if it wasn't for ideas? I think not.

    Quite a few people are saying 2016 is going to be a bad year for LEGO but I see a lot of things that interest me and seem affordable.

    If the price / piece maintains or lowers, then all is well.  If prices keep going up, then we'll play with what we have and patiently wait (30% off UA @ toysrus is perfect for making this point).

    Im interested in creator helicopter listed for 2H, also will be interesting what is set  http://brickset.com/sets/31052-1/Holiday .If it is something like changing seasons or holiday vehicles...
    Treehouse is also set Im looking for, some decent treehouse in creator range Im sure it will be beautiful.

    But most Im interested in bucket wheel excavator in technic range.

  • CircleKCircleK U.S. - Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 1,055
    If #75139 sticks to the rumored price point of $50 it will sell like gangbusters. That is a freaking great fig lineup for a mid-priced set. 

    The Resistance Transporter just looks awesome to me, but maybe that's due to my love of the b-wing. Nice to see something like this considering the other episode VII ships have been somewhat uninspiring. I haven't really liked any of them outside of the xwing and tie fighters.

    50 bucks for it?   I'm liking it less already.  It is a cool set, but not much too it beyond the figures.   For $39.99, I'll start liking it again, lol

    Again, without seeing the movie, all these Force Awakens sets have been easy to pass on at the $ being charged.   Star Wars or not, without any emotion to the sets, I cant purchase...I have sooooo much more emotion to money!  :)

    I respect the work of everybody here working for this site, but really, if it wasn't for all the images and review published on this site of the related sets, I would have achieved my starting purpose not to know a single particular about episode 7 (and it was not easy anyway). The world hasn't come to an end, but definitely I would have preferred a lot more attention about spoilers problem.

    What - No love for Creator 3n1 up in here?! I thought 2015 was a pretty good year for the theme but next year is looking even better. I like most of the sets revealed so far with top nods going to Ocean Explorer, Lakeside Lodge, and of course the corner Deli. I can't wait for the the Lighthouse & Treehouse reveals. 

    I love this theme. No stickers. No figs to chase. Just cool shit to build. 

    I like the Creator minifig housing/building sets, but not at their ever increasing price points. I only buy them when they are on sale at 25-35% off otherwise I think people are overpaying for them. It will be interesting to see the price point for the deli. I'm guessing it is at least 70 USD, the lodge will likely be 49.99 USD.
    Again great ideas, but horrible prices.

    I know nothing about Ep 7 despite seeing images of all the new sets. Right now they are the same category as Rebel and Clone Wars, which I don't watch and don't care about. I hope that changes after I see the movie.

    I honestly feel this way about Lego pricing in general. At least with Creator 3in1, the 25% to 35% discounts can still be had relatively easily if you're just patient. Some of the other themes (I'm looking at you Star Wars) are getting more difficult to find the great deals on. I usually have to use rewards programs, coupons, etc. to help buy them down.
