    ^^That's definitely a day one purchase for me.

    It may be the best Technic set to date, the thing just looks monstrous.

    Were probably talking £300+ though easily. i may have to give the 1966 Batcave a miss.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,255
    a 4600 pieces set, then a 2700 one and a 3900 one? I suppose it won't take too long anymore before they break the 6000 barrier.

    word on the post that was made on here (now removed at lego request) was that it was £180
    other Lego news webpages are also reporting £180
    i dont know if that is right or not but i hope it is.
    if that is the right price and lego dont put it up i will be Quite happy to Buy it.
    (btw i have the London toy fair News post's (well some of them) in my browser cash.)

    all the webpages i have bookmarked are saying this.
    so.
    A. this is the Price.
    B. the Lego Rep massed up big time in London!
  • SuperTrampSuperTramp City 17Member Posts: 1,021
    ^Like someone mentioned on Brickpicker, the prices have probably been mixed up with the #42056. Which i must say is also a day one purchase.

    From just having a quick look the Bucket Wheel its going to be £249.99.

    Ive been disappointed with this years sets so I've been buying 1988-92 space.

    I will buy the brick bank, shuttle tydirium, speed champs, WV Train!!! and maybe the blue power jet.   Perhaps a few Marvel and DC sets.

  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,255
    so far interested in :
    -brick bank
    -fortrex
    -jestro's fortress
    -lighthouse siege
    -green nrg dragon
    -ragana's castle
    -elves dragon queen

    shouldn't be a very expensive year so far seeing as I haven't bought a single 2016 set yet. except cmfs.
  • MattDawsonMattDawson Solihull, UKMember Posts: 1,202
    For me:
    CITY
    Ferry (brought)
    Car & Caravan (brought)
    Fun In The Park
    Octan Service Station 
    2 of the Airport sets 

    And then in no particular order:
    CMF S15 (all brought)
    Heartlake Supermarket (for parts!)
    Dimensions pack: Midway Arcade
    Kanan's Speeder Bike (for the 'bins' and parts)
    Magazine gifts (parts, ad hoc as required as released)
    several creator sets (some brought, as hoc as released)
  • Sethro3Sethro3 United StatesMember Posts: 819
    Well it's a bit into the year, but I'd say my want list has changed from January 1.

    Originally wanted Batcave and Ghostbusters HQ, but I think the cost is too much for what you get (for what I would want). So I'll scratch them off the list.

    Brick Bank will still be on the list, probably for Christmas.
    If it isn't a rehash of a Winter Village set, that will be guaranteed.
    I have purchased a handful of Super Hero sets for the figures. I'll need to round out the figure list hopefully sometime.
    I've picked up a few Nexo knights for fun, but I don't think I'll get any more.

    So I think most of my spending has been on bricklink, which is a first. Maybe I can spend less money for once??

    That light house with orca whale. It has a light up brick!

  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,255
    lighthouse siege as well
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 2,455

    The Porsche is constantly moving around my wish list, from On, to Maybe, to Off. The main reasons are:

    1. The proportions are gorgeous and the mechanicals technically impressive.

    2. The price!

    3. I don't normally buy Technic.

    4. One of the most iconic supercars in the world.

    5. The colour (this can switch between a pro and a con depending on my mood)!

    Repeat ad nauseam.

    Other sets:

    #21029-1 Buckingham Palace

    #76058-1 Spider-Man: Ghost Rider Team-Up

    #76060-1 Doctor Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum

    #76067-1 Marvel Super Heroes Captain America: Civil War 2016

    #ISBN1465450459-1 LEGO Star Wars: Build Your Own Adventure

    If this is really $90 then it's really overpriced (might need to use my VIP points on this one plus the Oil  Station). Still my Rebellion needs a space command ship.

    How is $90 for a 936-piece Star Wars set overpriced? That seems like it'd be a pretty reasonable price for a set that size from any theme, besides maybe a basic brick theme like Classic. In fact, #7675, #7962, #9500, #9526, #75019, #75025, #75094, #75096, and #75103 and were all $90 sets with close to the same number of figs and considerably fewer parts. And many of those would cost even more today if you adjusted for inflation.

    #75158 will be mine.
    at some point.
    anyone willing to bet this will be a TRU only item in the uk?
  • RirinetteRirinette CanadaMember Posts: 84
    Wall-E
    Big Bang Theory
    Jokerland
    Pet Shop
    Ghostbusters
    Brick Bank

    If I could get at least 2 of the above I'll be happy. I already bought 3 sets this year and finances are thin as I'll be going back to school in September (for a career change).

    Wouldn't surprise me. Sets that take us this long before we first see them are usually store exclusives, and ones this size are usually Toys 'R' Us exclusives.

    On the subject of exclusives, I'm still wondering when we'll get the first pics of #70590. We've seen both of the other Ninjago store exclusives for this year (#70588 and #70596). If I had to guess about 70590 I'd say it's probably a Target exclusive in the States. Once we've seen all the Ninjago sets for this year it'll be a bit easier for me to start narrowing down which ones I want and which I'm willing to skip. It's a tough call though, because while I can get individual figs and collectibles on the aftermarket if it comes down to it, most of the sets this year are really impressive designs in their own right.
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,255
    does that often happen that store exclusives are flagships?
  • ChubblesChubbles USAMember Posts: 459
    I'll get #75158 but only after a discount, much like all the other Rebel sets they look a lot better when they are cheaper

    Depends on which you're referring to as a flagship. #70596 Samurai X Cave Chaos ($120) is the first example I can think of where the largest and most expensive set of a specific year of a specific theme has been a store exclusive. But last year, the #70732 City of Stiix, a $100 set, was a Toys 'R' Us exclusive. The only larger non-D2C set that year was #70738 Final Flight of Destiny's Bounty ($120).

    Like City of Stiix from Ninjago, #75158 Rebel Command Frigate is a big set ($90), but not the largest Star Wars set of the year or even the largest Star Wars Rebels set of the year. Excluding D2C sets, that honor would go to #75157 Captain Rex's AT-TE ($120).

    I notice a lot of folks are looking to purchase the Ferry this year, myself included. is there any particular reason for the interest in this set? I happen to enjoy any transportation sets and anything with the Harbor subtheme seems to fetch a premium down the road. are my sentiments shared?

    another observation I have is the perceived lack of interest in the Architecture series. I am waiting with excitement for The Capitol Building. The architecture line got me re-interested in Lego though lately I have been venturing into Creator and City.
  • bandit778bandit778 Docking Bay 94. Member Posts: 1,904
    Looking forward to future deals to get #75158 as I think it will go nicely with #75127 docked to the side of it (without the Hera minifig sitting on top obviously)

    I haven't seen the piece count but it does look a lot meatier that similiar priced sets (and its scale is just right when placed beside the first system set Imperial Star Destroyer.

    I have the Ferry in my general collection and its a pretty neat set. In my LEGO world that's how my citizens and Imperial Troops use as a in planetary tranportation to cross rivers when they are just doing escort business or just transporting some "newly mined pieces" from the Lego Mine to the construction sites in the Capital just crossing a canal (on project near the mine is the Dimensions Portal from the same named game).
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Chicagoland USMember Posts: 9,260
    Yeah, definitely getting the Ghost Rider set. I have a feeling he will be like Deadpool and not be seen again after this set.

    I'd like to get the ferry too. I think I like it because it feels like a throwback to the old harbour sets that I never appreciated back in the day. It was something like £16 a while back and if it goes down to that again I'll likely pick it up.

    #76067-1 Marvel Super Heroes Captain America: Civil War 2016 has just gone off my list.

    I'm still debating the merits of Ghost Rider, although if he goes all Netflix on us we'll never see him in Lego form again...

  • CircleKCircleK U.S. - Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 1,055
    Some of the 2016 Summer sets are starting to show up on you tube.  Jang has a vid of the new Creator Vacation Getaways and the Brickshow Guys have several of the new Star Wars sets up now.

    Vacation Getaways remains at the top of my list. Such a great addition to an already stellar 2016 Creator lineup. Vader's Tie Advanced vs. A-Wing, although over priced imo, looks fantastic as well.  I really like the look of the Rebels Phoenix Squadron A-Wings.

    for starters...
    Ferry
    UN Building (not a new release of course, but I have a feeling it's going to get harder to find )
    US Capitol
    Vacation Getaway
    Lighthouse Point 
    Burj Khalifa

    I will say that if you are wanting the City and non-exclusive creator sets in the US watch Amazon and yoyo.com like a hawk as there have been some really good deals on these sets via those two sites.

    Way too much next month for me, I'd already planned on getting the '66 Batcave, but now I need to add...

    - All three Spidey sets - £165
    - The Scarecrow set - £60 
    - The Ra's set - £40
    - Tie Advanced/A-Wing set (just for the Tie) - £80.00

    Already thats looking like around £575! Plus I wanted to pick Croc up separately too. I guess I'm going to have to think of something to get the money.... :-/
  • LordmoralLordmoral Puerto RicoMember Posts: 254
    I may have gotten a peak of the new Lego Rogue One SW sets and let me tell you I am most interested in (order of wanted level): AT-ST (model looks solid and my troops need a new walker for desert operations); the Imperial Landspeeder (a military cargo vehicle); Tie Hunter (looked like a Tie Phantom to me until it was named Hunter, the Phantom has three dagger like wings).

    Doc Brown from the Dumension range and the Ideas Doctor Who set, I would love to buy the entire system Roge One sets.

    Summer sets wish list:

    Assault on Hoth (LOVE this set, unlike most)
    Resistance X-Wing
    Encounter on Jakku
    Scarecrow's Harvest of Fear
    Black Panther Jet
    Airport Battle
    Ghost Rider Team Up
    Doc Ock's Tentacle Trap
    Bridge Battle
    Wow, it's funny to look back at this. I still haven't got any of these sets, and to be honest, many of them I don't even like.

    More importantly, I thought AoH was a good set??? I must have been possessed.

    I was re-reading this thread also, and the thing is...I have so much to get from 2015 and 2016...jeez. I've spent WAY too much money on older sets since coming back to the hobby. But screw it im enjoying myself.

    About Hoth. I wonder, and maybe there is a better place to post this query...realistically, what's the lowest price one could expect to pay for it? If I could get it for, um...I dunno, maybe 160-180 I'd love the set. I don't have any older Hoth sets and would like some icy cold Star Wars representation. Aftermarket prices on the last large Hoth base are up in that range, this has more to offer.

    That a realistic price?

  • blogzillyblogzilly Columbus, OhioMember Posts: 598
    @SirBrickalotOfLego Funny, from your list I'm only missing 2. Doc Ocks set and Hoth. I intend to get the Doc Ock set because I'm old school Spidey fan and want that vulture. I don't have an Octavius in my collection yet so it satisfies that too. It's also on sale.

    Hoth I went over above.

    As for the rest, the Resistance X-Wing was great fun to build. Solid, swooshable LEGO craft. If you had not built Poe's X-Wing, it's even better. I had not gotten around to it. Do I kept Poe's in package as I think it less likely to be re-issued. I also think that it doesn't live on in The Last Jedi.

    Encounter on Jakku and Airport Battle both suffer from re-used minifigure fatigue but have some nice aspects to them, namely the Luggabeast and the Giant-Man figures, respectively. In both cases, there just isn't enough of the market to justify the original RRP nor enough airport. But with discounts the sets were worth it. My main gripe? The Luggabeast. It is a beast with armor on it. This looks like a robot. But I'll take it for now it's decent. But a head on it, sculpted, with a removable armor head piece would have been something really special.

    Ghost Rider set is cheap enough to just get it for the two great minifigures of GH and Hobby if you are a Spidey fan. GH on his cycle is TITS. Black Panther set way better than I expected. But a Marvel vehicle sets almost ALWAYS surprise me with their build efficiency yet interesting design. His plane is a very unique build. While building it I'm like...huh? When it was complete? I was like...oh YEAH.

    Scarecrow set? I honestly bought it for the tractor. I desperately want City to do updated farming equipment! The best thing they've done in the category was the Combine Harvester but nothing as amazing since. This Harvester is a pale imitation, but it could be converted by anyone who wanted into a workable one for a lot less money. And the Batcopter isn't horrible, but still, it ain't no Bat, which still needs a quality LEGO version.

    i bought Bridge Battle, haven't built it. This was the first time I bought an item at full price, then saw it on Sale for 30% off not a day after I bought mine. So I ordered it. But then returned the one I'd already bought. Not exactly ethical, but 30 bucks is 30 bucks.

    Hmm...should try to write a review...

    @blogzilly I saw the Ghost Rider set at a local supermarket a few weeks ago at 55% off RRP, I passed on it, though I wish I had bought it now.

    I really couldn't care less about Encounter on Jakku anymore, the figs don't excite me and the builds are awful. I agree about the reused minifigure fatigue in the Airport Battle, though some figs (mainly War Machine) really draw me to the set. Not much else though, except Giant-Man obviously.

    Still mean to get the bridge battle, but the scarecrow, X-Wing and Doc Ock sets I'm no longer fussed about.
