100,000. Or, how many pieces do you own?

PaperballparkPaperballpark Near ManchesterMember Posts: 4,104
I got a free set in-store today, which got me up to the following nice round number:

Although I probably have about double that, when you take into account all the loose pieces I've bought, I'm sure there's others with far, far more.

So how many pieces do you have?

    That's an amazingly round number! How did you do that, the OCD-part of me wants numbers like that.

     I'm shocked to find I'm close to a 250 k party - which did include my son's sets to be fair.
  • BumblepantsBumblepants DFWMember Posts: 7,000
    182,750 in sets. Easily more than 200K counting loose brick.
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 492
    My Brickset table says 53000+ , at only 65 sets, though I have very few small sets. I have 15000pcs in a database, and I would guess another 15-20k of loose unsorted pcs.

    It was completely unintentional! I knew I was pretty close, but I didn't go looking for a specific set to get it up to that. Besides, I know the real number is way way past that anyway.

    Past few months let go of a few modular sets, so now left with below figure.

    The above figure says piece counts for 1313 sets, so not sure if there's more pieces from those sets that it misses out.

    According to Rebrickable there are 22K of spares from all the sets, plus I had another 23K of loose PAB. 

    Due to no more budget, I've missed out most of this year's sets :(

    Updated my sets today and was hoping to reach the 100k milestone. I was quite a bit out of date on my set inventory so was amazed to see 119k (not including the loose brick purchases which must be @3k).

    I'm already having space issues, its only going to get worse isn't it...
  • DaraghDaragh IrelandMember Posts: 363
    351k according to Brickset, plus about 200k more in used sets, mocs, pab etc. Plus just over 100k now on BL store which I started less than a month ago and 200k parts in sets I have yet to upload to BL. 
  • paul_mertonpaul_merton UKMember Posts: 2,967
    Have no idea how many parts I have, but the set count recently went over 9,000!
  • catwranglercatwrangler Northern IrelandMember Posts: 1,890
    30,961 according to Brickset, but there's also been charity shop lots which would push that up by a good few thousand.

    Brickset tells me that I have over 50k parts! (56,738 to be precise) I never would've thought that I had that many parts. In addition to that, I have maybe 1k to 2k loose parts. I'm surprised!
  • mmozzanommozzano UKMember Posts: 413

    You own 185 items, 177 different.

    We have piece counts for 177 of them. You own 52675 pieces.

    We have retail prices for 163 of them. Their retail value is £4833.

    Many of the above are CMFs. I presume these are just sets I own and not the ones I've flagged as owned by my son.

    I posted about this back in July, when I had bang on 60000 bricks (and a slightly interesting market value of 10 cents per brick). Its now annoyingly slightly more than that, but not a round number.
    @TheMaker37 - 53000+  at only 65 sets means your average set size must be pretty big, nearly 1k per set. I have nearly double your sets, but only slightly more bricks (until you count your loose bricks of course :-). What type of sets do you focus on?
  • PeteMPeteM Gallifrey (near Bristol)Member Posts: 431
    119,154 in 490 sets, including all my surviving childhood sets and the beginnings of my daughter's collection (most of which she doesn't know she has yet!). Can probably add another 8-10k in loose parts collected and bought over the years. 

    My next milestone is to reach 1000 minifigures - I'm currently on 978...
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 492
    @MaffyD It says that 29204 pcs are in advanced models of which I have 15 sets. 5 modulars, 3 Winter Village sets, 2 Fairground sets, Tower Bridge, Sydney Opera House, #10213 and the Mini Cooper. The other 33000 is spread over 50 sets.
  • dspigeldspigel Seoul, KoreaMember Posts: 453

    You own 280 items, 230 different.

    We have piece counts for 230 of them. You own 95855 pieces.

    We have retail prices for 206 of them. Their retail value is $10483.

    I'm almost to 100k. I'm sure I'll be there by Christmas.

    ^^ Thanks for replying - that explains a lot! My own concentration of parts is in Star Wars UCS sets (10 at over 1k), a couple of LOTR sets (Helms Deep, Orthanc) and the big three Superhero vehicle sets (helicarrier, tumbler, batmobile). Oh, and a Ferrari. They account for 30000 pieces, approx (how do you work that out without counting individual set contents?)
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 492
    @MaffyD when you go to the collection analyses view the data as a table and it will break down the sets.  
  • MaffyDMaffyD West YorkshireMember Posts: 3,041
    @TheMaker37 - yeah, that's what I used. Still awkward to work out your top 10 or 15 sets and add up the piece counts for those. Manual effort required, unless I've missed an option somewhere?
  • TheMaker37TheMaker37 Norfolk,VaMember Posts: 492
    @MaffyD I see what you mean now.
  • Patrik78Patrik78 Member Posts: 142
    I am at 75491 :)
  • FauchFauch FranceMember Posts: 2,552
    according to this site, 43961 + about 10000 from sets not built yet.
  • LusiferSamLusiferSam MontanaMember Posts: 533
    So according to Bricklink under Parts Owned I have 400,080. But under my piece count I have 461,079 pieces that I own.  That's more than a slight discrepancy.  That number also doesn't include any the spare or random stuff I have, which is around other 140,000 bricks or so.

    Space issues? I know that pain well... Not sure the planned Lego room will be big enough.

  • dougtsdougts Oregon, USAMember Posts: 4,129
    Brickset says 250k, which means the real number is closer to 750k
  • JudgeChuckJudgeChuck UKMember Posts: 1,485
    "You own 259 items, 233 different.

    We have piece counts for 225 of them. You own 64932 pieces."

    I'd guess that I'm probably closer to 70,000 pieces, given the DB part inaccuracies and all the extra pieces that I have picked up via PAB / BL over the last couple of years.
  • Si_UKNZSi_UKNZ NZMember Posts: 4,179
    About half million, I reckon.

    Over 60,000 Pieces!
  • ethanjwallethanjwall United StatesMember Posts: 118
    Probably about 80,000 in sets, but loose bricks I have too many to count.
  • CaptainPirateManCaptainPirateMan MichiganMember Posts: 347
    It says I have 41,228 pieces. But that's only counting my official sets. Including sets that I didn't put on here, random bricks, brick link orders, etc, etc im sure i have around 60,000.
  • KingAlanIKingAlanI Rochester, NYMember Posts: 2,151
    According to my Excel spreadsheet:
    15,749 in models (official set and MOC)
    20,158 loose pieces
    35,907 total

    I also have 15,702 pieces in my BrickLink inventory.
  • tallblocktootallblocktoo CanadaMember Posts: 497
    Not really that many compared to many of you.   Around 70, 000 hoping to get to 100, 000 sooner than later.  Would be fun to get to a 500, 000 but not sure about space and cost!  Might be other fun things that money will go towards.  
  • rdflegordflego in a world of his ownMember Posts: 324
    For me Brickset says 135,413 however the overall number is easily 150,000+.

    While I am lucky to have my childhood sets along with my current collection and even the kids's sets included in my inventory, it looks like I have about 25,000 pieces.

    That must be a big brisket.

  • DeyorewDeyorew Member Posts: 8
    I am at 133,901 pieces and 474 Minifigures. 226 Sets.
  • SeanTheCollectorSeanTheCollector BirminghamMember Posts: 765

    Brickset currently tells me:

    •     You own 801 items, 680 different.
    •     We have piece counts for 638 of them. You own 215606 pieces.
    Which is definitely too much lego! :-)
  • GoldchainsGoldchains Member Posts: 795
    Not enough.
  • tallblocktootallblocktoo CanadaMember Posts: 497
    I think you can stack and store a lot of Lego even in a small house just not perhaps display as much as one would like.  I'm not sure either how one could own to much Lego.  I"m far from it but I think half a million pieces sounds nice.  Not sure I'll get there but its a goal.

    Or you could make your house out of Lego. Would get rid of some spare pieces and create more room to buy more! ;)

    Yes, but you see, walls of Brick Separators let in quite a draft... ;)

    It would be nice to search BS for a breakdown for those who have the most registered sets, pieces, and/or minifigures.

    Second that!

    I believe there are more than a handful of members here that are in the Million Pieces Club. :)

    I wonder if it would ever be worth conducting a census or something, to see just how diverse Brickset membership is. I am fascinated by the statistics this site could show - Gender, Nationality, age range, length of membership, split of sets versus individual pieces, post frequency etc. There's more, but you see what I'm getting at. Obviously it would need to respect people's privacy needs. I can't believe I'm on my own here, there are loads of threads asking people what their interests are...
  • TigerMothTigerMoth Member Posts: 2,343
    If that's what rocks your boat, maybe this will be of interest:

    ^ Thats really interesting. I'll give it a look. Wonder how reliable it is?
