    Oooh. I was thinking of something different...
  • natro220natro220 Member Posts: 545
    I thought it was odd you'd have zero.  LOL
  • LegopantsLegopants Member Posts: 2,097
    Just 22, plus 2 I used to have but sold in a moment of foolishness.
  • catwranglercatwrangler Member Posts: 1,894

    And of course, I covet many more.

    Difficult question to answer without having a list of sets in the book, is there a bricklist somewhere? I have the book at home, but I have not opened it yet :-O

    Officially it's 47.   But if I count the renumbered US sets that are identical to their European counterparts it's 52.  All but 16 of the 52 are originally mine.  Those most of those were added in the last few years. 

    Other than maybe 810 I can't say that there is much that I'd really like to add to my collect from this list.
  • madforLEGOmadforLEGO Member Posts: 10,789

    I have 37 on the list at this time. Some I wish I still had.

    A fair few - but thanks to this topic I've gone and got the book out again - a great book indeed!
  • khmellymelkhmellymel Member Posts: 1,313

    47 sets officially with 7 renumbered sets from the older days.
  • An even 20, mostly recent - #396 Thatcher Perkins Locomotive is the earliest to appear.  The world's moved on (very happy with Emerald Night and the Hogwarts Express as my on-display trains at present), but I remember when the old girl seemed so big a build as to be almost intimidating.
  • Jern92Jern92 Member Posts: 890
    I have Medieval Market Village, Haunted House, Parisian Restaurant, Simpsons House, Ghostbusters Ecto-1, and Detective's Office.

    Also have a Lepin Green Grocer but I guess that doesn't count.

    Thanks for the responses everyone :)

    I've just worked it out, the combined value (used) for all the sets listed in the book would be around AU$24,000
  • gmonkey76gmonkey76 Member Posts: 1,828

  • TheOriginalSimonBTheOriginalSimonB Member Posts: 1,781
    The grand total for me is three definite ones. Looks like I might have the appropriate loose parts inherited from cousins back in the 70s to make a couple more really early sets but I don't recall seeing them built.

  • Rainstorm26Rainstorm26 Member Posts: 1,013
    I loved #367.  It was one of my first sets.....too bad it got all jumbled up and given away to my cousin.
  • jgadgetjgadget Member Posts: 192
    57 with 13 duplicates
  • RecceRecce Member Posts: 923
    For me it's 20+ sets, mostly the recent ones. Didn't get the rest of the recent sets as not interestd in them.
  • PeteMPeteM Member Posts: 447
    16 - six from 'the old days' and ten from the recent years. Thanks for reminding me of the book though, it's overdue a re-read to remind myself of all the fantastic sets I still need to get....

    2 complete sets and maybe 3 or 4 other sets that I need to confirm as complete.
