Agree. PR is way too popular, and Brick Bank is too new. If they feel the need to retire one to make space, I feel like it would be the Detective's Office. 2nd oldest active modular, and I feel like it's currently being heavily over-shadowed by every other modular that's out right now, so I wouldn't be shocked if it's not keeping up on volume with the other sets.
However - given the price point of Assembly Square - that one could always be next. (If they're going to pull an out-of-order Town Hall fast retirement.)
I'm very intrigued to see if there will be a mass retirement of a number of more expensive sets due to TRU exiting the market. (Granted, I'm North American-centric, so maybe that just means I get to see high volumes of LEGO at other retailers.)
Or the LEGO Retail Store and Amazon being the driving factor for larger retail sets.
75217: Imperial Cargo Train (needs another cart and a pilot for the front and the removal of the turret to place on a MOC and it's $89.99 for five figures and two train carts that can't be used on tracks and sadly isn't a monorail train);
75218: AT-Hauler (only two figures are accurate (Val and Rio) while the rest are unnecessary in my opinion, my Imperial Forces are so gonna have an use for it and it's so worth the $99.99 for five figures and a ship).
Both sets are a little stingy with the price so like the Tie I will wait.
1. I now own Tron
2. I have all IW sets except for the polybag - I'll get that eventually, hopefully
3. SC remains the same - no new ones to be added
4. I have the Talon Fighter
5. I've added several Brickhaedz to my want list (Mr & Mrs Claus, Mickey, Minnie, Darth, Stormtrooper, Luke & Yoda, Leia, Boba, Groot & Rocket), and several more to my owned list (Gamora, Star Lord, Thanos, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, Batman & Superman) but I don't want another version of Iron Man so I've left him out.
6. HP sets - I'm tempted by the rumoured microscale Hogwarts... we'll see... Nothing else interests me.
7. Star Wars sets - I want the UCS Y wing, the TIE from Solo and the X Wing.
Still thinking about the Bugatti, AoU Hulkbuster, The Statue of Liberty, Voltron and Ship in a bottle. And definitely want the 007 car and Las Vegas.
Oh, and I bought Quantum Realm Explorers as soon as it was available.
It will be interesting to see how my list at the end matches the list at the beginning (and not just the increase in numbers!)
- Hogwarts Castle (I'm almost thankful it's not minifig scale, that takes the shine off it a little)
Will buy at some point:
- Hogwarts Great Hall (probably next week)
- Whomping Willow (the price will need to come down considerably, though)
- Grindelwald's Escape
- City Hospital
- Forest Tractor
Will compromise and just buy the animals/minifigs:
- Arctic range (sadly the mammoth head and body are out of stock online - has anyone been able to buy them by phone?)
- Might pick up some Harry Potter CMFs on the secondary market
So, a Harry Potter and City-dominated year...
EDIT: Actually... when are we expecting the pop-up book? Because that's a must-buy...
Still thinking about the Bugatti, the 007 Aston Martin has become a 'maybe', as has the microscale Hogwarts Castle, I've taken the Statue of Liberty off.
It's all go on my constantly changing wants and owns lists!
I now have most of the Harry Potter sets. Initially wasn't tempted by microscale hogwarts but it's really grown on me, and I have some points saved up on [email protected] so atleast that will soften the blow.
Still need to pick up a couple of the bigger Solo sets, some of the newer brickheadz and the porg later this year.
Solo: Tie Fighter, Imperial Train, AT-Hauler, Cloud Bikers.
OT: Y-Wing, X-Wing.
Jurassic World FK: Carnotaurous set.
City: Hospital (pieces to expand it), City pack.
Maybe: Cantina (new one) and Garmadon Volcano Base.
-most of my SW sets are in the 2018 (Vader Castle, Solo Tie, X-Wing, RO Y-Wing, Cantina remake maybe, Boba Fett Brickhead);
-Inferno Squad Battle Pack (sad that we don't see a helmet for Iden or we haven't seen the other faces for the rest of IS);
-most are in my past 2018 list (Hospital, Capital City)
-the new road plates (straight/T and curve/+) packs;
Generic (Vestas Wind Turbine from 2018);
-from 2018 Carnortaurous Gyrosphere Escape.
Spinjitzu sets 70659–70664
#70670 Monastery of Spinjitzu
#70679 The Ultra Dragon
#70827 Ultrakatty & Warrior Lucy
#70828 Pop-Up Party Bus
#70830 Sweet Mayhem's Systar Starship
I will probably be adding a LOT more Ninjago and LEGO Movie 2 sets to my wanted list, but haven't narrowed down which yet.
-pop up party bus
-monastery of spinjitzu
-jay's storm fighter
not sure I'll get them all, monastery is top of the list so far. ultradragon probably bottom, I have the first one.
Maybe's are the little digger #60219 and the Snowgroomer #60222 (for my WV), #31094 the Creator Houseboat.
Very maybe the burgerbarfireset (#60214), as I think i like the firetruck.
2019 might become the year of my first Speed Champions set with the Classic Mini being very cool ( #75894 ), but i really don't know what to do with the rest of the set.
For now, that's it really. Probably will invest in some MOC's/MOD's later in the year.
All the Lego Minecraft sets
#31088 Deep Sea Creatures
#70821 Emmet and Benny's 'Build and Fix' Workshop!
#70826 Rex's Rex-treme Offroader!
#70831 Emmet's Dream House/Rescue Rocket!
#70841 Benny's Space Squad
#75229 Death Star Escape
#81000 Koi (Already signed up for via Indiegogo)
I think that's it so far!
Spider Man sets
Captain Marvel sets (assuming there is something)
Avengers 4 sets
Lego Movie 2 stuff - especially the Benny sets.
Lego Movie 2 CMF
2019 City for my son - especially #60220.
Not 2019 sets, but I think I will finally bite the bullet on the Death Star and possibly the Imperial Flagship if I can find a decent price.
Other than that, it'll just be the usual DC sets and random "that looks fun to build" buys for me.
#60239 Police Patrol Car
#75890 Ferrari F40 Competizione
#75891 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Race Car
#75892 McLaren Senna
#75893 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT Demon and 1970 Dodge Charger R/T
31090: Underwater Robot
31093: Riverside Houseboat
31094: Race Plane
70841: Benny’s Space Squad
75228: Escape Pod vs. Dewback Microfighters
75892: McLaren Senna
#60214: That little burger bar looks awesome! Even if I have no need for a fire truck. But if I can find it cheap enough on sale. Maybe combine it with #41349 for something interesting in a city setting.
#60240: who can argue with another cool 4-wide to add variety to city streets when it’s available for impulse buy money.
The Flintstones: Whatever this set turns out to be, I’m sure to buy it. I usually roll my eyes at some of the IP based Ideas sets, but well this is an IP that I like so that’s totally different LOL
Other than that, it might be a catch up kinda year. I still need Parisian Restaurant and Ninjago City (and Docks) for my Modular/city interests. Statue of Liberty for Architecture. I’d like to try my hand at technic with the Mack truck. And last but not least, it’d be nice to buy both the Winter Village Fire Station AND whatever set is new next year to “catch up” instead of always being a year behind.
I actually did save a lot of money in the end. Rather than getting swept up in the moment and buying everything on contact, I avoided the frenzy and ended up buying only ten sets and most of the CMFs. I got everything I really wanted, without ending up with a pile of black and 'very dark grey' bricks that would just join the bins of Lego Batman crap I've amassed over the years.
Of course, all bets are off for TLM2. I already want it all. :p
I really hope the Chinese sets appear worldwide, they would be a must-buy!
I am probably being unbelievably optimistic here... in both how much I will like all these sets, and whether I can afford them!
