There appears to be a lot missing at this point from the 2016 catalog in the SW line. I'm expecting most of the new larger sets will be TFA, in which case I'll pass. A number of the larger OT sets retired this year: AT-AT, Imperial Star Destoyer, and this week, Death Star. I think it may be a dry spell in 2016 for larger OT sets.
The (new) Death Star (probably)
(New) UCS Millenium Falcon (probably)
2016 Winter Village set
CMF all series.
And a few bricks and pieces orders for new parts, and then BL orders.
#10251 Brick Bank
#70590 Airjitzu Temple Grounds - As long as it's a fitting addition to the Temple itself
#21123 The Iron Golem
#21124 The End Portal
#21125 The Jungle Tree House
#21126 The Wither
#2016 Winter Village set
#924 Space Transporter - I know it's not a 2016 set, but I need it!
If a UCS MF is released, as rumoured, I might just have to pick one up...
Creator Expert Brick Bank
Creator 3n1 Corner Deli
Creator 3n1 Lakeside Lodge
Creator 3n1 Propeller Plane
Creator 3n1 Tree House (Possibly)
Creator 3n1 Lighthouse (Possibly)
SW TFA Battlepack Resistance
SW TFA Battlepack FO (x2)
SW Resistance X-Wing Microfighter
SW FO SnowSpeeder Microfighter
SW Hoth Attack
SW Droid Escape
SW Battle on Takodana
If there is a UCS Falcon well then that will probably happen as well.
I don't think I have room for a UCS Millennium Falcon unfortunately.
The only for sure thing on my list is the Brick Bank. If I have extra money during the year, I'd be looking at picking up the Ghostbuster's Firehouse. Anything else comes down to finding a good deal.
I'll be happy either way. I knew the risks going in and was comfortable with the worst case scenario.
I will say, it will cause me to no longer take Legos as an investment seriously anymore, and I'll just be buying them to collect / play with them with my kids.
Curious to see the Town theme for this year. Will it be an airport, farm, more construction?
In any case Ill likely be waiting a lot for sales on non-exclusive stuff and double points for the exclusives (like GB HQ and Bank)
Well, this is the first I've heard about a new Falcon. It seems a little strange since they just released a Millennium Falcon set, though not UCS. I was planning to get that after Christmas, actually, but now I'm not sure if I should wait. I don't mind if they make it OT or TFA either, as there really isn't much difference. I just really hope this one has an interior.
Constraction Kylo Ren + Capt Phasma
Lance's Mecha Horse
Battle at Takodana (if it goes on sale)
Perhaps some Nexo Ultimate sets to get minifigs of the good guys
First I've heard of UC Millennium Falcon return!! If that is true I just may have to get it if it is as awesome as the original. Considering UC Death Star, I'll have to see a picture of it to be certain.
Finally, these older sets I'll try to pick up early 2016:
First Order Transporter
(got mine in the mail today)
Has a nice fold-out picture of GB firehouse.
Nothing surprising, except that I am starting to not dislike Nexo Knights.
Space and scuba Iron Man have me rethinking the prioritization of my Marvel minifigs collection. Might have to enter the SW realm with TFA. Only deterrent is the completed collection will eventually have 4,754 minifigs, or so it would seem.
#75132 First Order Battle Pack
#10251 Brick Bank (x2)
#75827 Firehouse Headquarters
#76044 Clash Of The Heroes
#31050 Corner Deli (x2)
#31044 Park Animals
#60107 Fire Ladder Truck
#60108 Fire Response Unit
#60110 Fire Station
#60111 Fire Utility Truck
#60112 Fire Engine
#60117 Van & Caravan (x2)
#41116 Olivia's Exploration Car
#71201 Dimensions BTTF Level Pack
#71206 Dimensions Scooby-Doo Team Pack
#10220 Volkswagen T1 Camper Van
#10242 Mini Cooper
But seriously, most the new Star Wars sets and Superhero stuff. Most looking forward to getting all of BvS, Civil War, and TFA wave 2 sets! Glad the new SW battle packs are better for army building, though they could be improved.
Might get the Ghostbusters HQ and Brick Bank, but that depends on me winning the lottery! :(
All SW because I just can't kick the habit...
Some of the City vehicles I like, along with a few speed chamipons...
A few creator sets...
All Architecture sets because I just can't kick the habit...
Larger Technic sets that look good...
Fairground, Winter Village, D2C...
Mixels & CMF's because I just can't kick the habit...
GBHQ, BB, and any other unexpected large sets...
#75132 First Order BP x2
#75131 Resistance BP
#75140 Resistance Troop Transport
#75133 Rebel Alliance BP
#75134 Galactic Empire BP
#75143 A-wing Starfighter (when it will be released!)
I have doubts about other sets, but I think I'll buy one of these too:
#75141 Kanan's Speeder Bike
#75135 Obi Wan's Jedi Interceptor
- #75195 New Death Star
- #5002948 Force Awakens C3PO
- #75098 Assault on Hoth
With only knowing the name of both the Ultimate Collectors sets this year I am definitely interested but it remains to be seen if they are both worth buying. Especial with blowing cash on the Ghost Busters set too.
- #75139 Battle on Takodana
- #75101 First Order Special Forces Tie Fighter (when it goes on sale)
#10243 Parisian Restaurant
#10246 Detective's Office
#10251 Brick Bank
#21302 The Big Bang Theory
#76045 Kryptonite Interception
#75827 Ghostbusters, Firehouse Headquarters
#78159 Starkiller Base
#76046 Heroes Of Justice Sky High Battle
#75105 Millennium Falcon
Fingers crossed we have another D2C Simpsons set, ideally 'The Android's Dungeon & Baseball Card Shop.'
Carbonite Freezing Chamber
Droid Escape Pod
Series 15 CMF
SW Battle packs
Oh no... List is longer than I thought... Looks like I've got to talk to the wife again...
After that, it depends on whether there is another Simpson set, a decent train, a NEW WV set, or a replacement for the VW camper.
Still holding out for a roller coaster at some point....
