    I just need HE and I will have all the main MF theme sets.
    Is there a prize for decoding your message? :) I've spent about ten minutes browsing themes and sets and can't fathom those acronyms. I've failed as a Lego fan...
    I'm glad I'm not the only one that struggled... I figured I was just not up on all of the current AFOL acronyms.

    ^On mobile typing HH could auto-correct to HE depending on his settings

    The closest I get is LOTR with 57% but I'm not a completionist at all, so that doesn't surprise me. Marvel is at nearly 50% and the most out of whack theme is Star Wars, where those sets comprise my 2nd most owned theme, but I only have about 7% of all the sets.

    The worrying stat is the value in £ at the end of each row!

    The £ value is something I definitely need to keep from the wife!

    Its OK, my next highest % of completion after LotR is Ideas which sits at 26%... hahaha

    I do find these stats more interesting though:


    What makes it especially interesting is that I don't own all that many Star Wars sets, but what I do have is pretty high piece count/value.

    Where is everyone getting the stats of theme % from? Brickset? I had a look through and couldn’t see such a chart but will look further if I know it’s here!

    Ahem.... excuse my code and my error which made it slightly tougher to decipher.

    MF is indeed Monster Fighters and HE should have been HH meaning Haunted House.

    Incidentally, if anyone has a HH at a humane price I may be interested.

    @WhiteDove, go to the Brickset home page, then My Sets -> Overview of Your Collection -> Analysis (table). You can sort the table various ways from there. 

    Although not listed on the table, the most complete theme I have is the WV Creator subtheme. Just missing a few of the GWP sets or other minor vignettes to be fully there.

    In terms of actual themes the closest I have is Lord of the Rings at 71%. My Ideas total was similar but has plummeted over the past year as I’ve not really been interested in any of the recent sets...

    Almost completely unrelated, but your avatar and location got me thinking again on how much I would love for LEGO to make some more Doctor Who stuff! I loved the Ideas set and bought all the Dimensions items, but I'm really wanting more. I may resort to some of the custom figures for at least a few of the other Doctors in any case. Has anyone had any experience with any particular brands of custom figures that were particularly good?

    My Marvel theme is almost same as yours, at exactly 50%. My Star Wars owned figure up till last year was about 1/3 of all the sets, but now dropped to 23%.

    I can only claim Ghostbusters and the Winter Village Sub theme, nothing else comes close on the set analysis tool!

    Could also be an autocorrect, if I type hh on my phone it suggests he as an option

    Everyone likes to blame autocorrect, but if people would just reread and fix their comments before posting them, it sure would clear up some confusion.

    It's the internet. Almost every article I read on MSN has errors in grammar and/or spelling. Most of their contributors cannot even cut and paste an article from another source without screwing it up.

    In fact, it's so commonplace, on some forums I used to frequent you would be ostracised for using correct spelling and grammar, as it was seen as overly careful and pompous.

    According to Brickset my complete themes are:
    Ghostbusters
    Indiana Jones
    Pharaoh's Quest
    Pirates of the Caribbean
    Prince of Persia
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
    Angry Birds
    The Hobbit
    Lord of the Rings
    Simpsons
    Vikings

    I know there are LOTR, Hobbit, TMNJ and Indiana Jones sets I don't have, so they're not really complete.  I know Ghostbusters, Pharaoh's Quest, the Simpsons and Vikings are in fact complete.  The others not so sure on.

    Personally I would consider Pirate to complete.  The only sets I don't have are the 2001/2002 re-released ones.  I have no plans to get those sets either.  Minecraft is nearly complete.  I'm missing two set from this year which I'm planning on getting.

    I thought I had more themes completed:

    Obviously, I have some more collecting to do!
    Although at this stage with more than half a million bricks and over 1700 sets, I need to start being more selective but that is a story for another thread! :)

    ^ How can you already have all 7 Overwatch sets?

  • SeanTheCollectorSeanTheCollector BirminghamMember Posts: 752
    @Astrobricks It looks like these stats are generated from old theme data. I just checked and I'm still 100% complete for Overwatch! Even though I only have #75987 Omnic Bastion (which I've had to return since it arrived crushed although I am waiting for a replacement). I am planning on getting the other sets though since they do look good even though I've never played the game.

    I would have loved more - it may not have supported more than a ‘one and done’ (like Scooby Doo) but anything would have been better than those Character Building sets. Even a CMF series would be acceptable (though that schedule is rammed with more marketable licenses at the moment!).... 
    I have 100% of the sets I can afford.  That'll do me for completeness!
    Same here - I buy from various themes indiscriminately so I’d be broke if I went for completeness!

    Thanks @Switchfoot55!!
    OK so I’ve checked and not surprisingly I have zero completed themes. I am surprised however to see that I apparently have more than 50% of the Disney sets. That will go down over time as my girls are not really interested in the Princess sets anymore. We do have 97% of Elves which is all the sets, many in multiples as the three kids wanted their own copies of some, as did I. And I know I have all the winter village sets including the limited edition giveaways. We just don’t have all the polybags for any theme, or any of the little magazine foil bags for Elves, because polybags and magazines are so difficult / impossible to come by here in Australia. I have ordered some occasionally via Bricklink from overseas but postage is usually too much for it to be worthwhile.
