    Lovely answer @BOBJACK_JACKBOB I completely agree with you. I have also my own unique set :)

    I have 24 sets, all of them Friends sets. I bought a Scooby Doo mystery machine set but I don't count that as I have no plans of opening that up. I have been introduced to Lego just last Halloween 2015. I went to TRU and saw this cute Lego theme called Friends. I almost went to Disney Princess line but I like how I can build a town with Friends. I'm a newbie and I love to build build build! Need to buy a glass display case for them though! So I'm on a building hiatus for now. Lego is expensive here in the Philippines so I need to cut down on my spending. It's just hard not to buy especially retired sets I see on our local ebay.

    Hmmm...   As of March 29 this year I'm sitting on (or surrounded by) 5143 sets total with 2655 unique sets.  This a bit shy of the actual number as I haven't updated my count this month.  I also haven't included items such as the Collectible Minifigures, books, keychains etc.  plus a number of unsorted bulk lots.   1,095,308 pieces in tha hoard I have a record of.

    Change the qty owned on the page for the set. Then go into ACM. In the notes column it will display [Deleted Record]. Select EDIT and then select Del (for delete). Confirm the deletion. Close ACM. Refresh the set page.

    346 sets, only 2 of which aren't Star Wars. Those would be the Ship in the Bottle and 6915 Warp Wing. My biggest is the UCS Sandcrawler (I have all three versions).
    My most valuable is 10123 Cloud City (which is still sealed in the box). Got that one for 'only' 400 bucks.

    I found one on eBay, that was titled Lego Star Wars Cloud City, they forgot to put the set number in the title, and it started at 300 dollars. I made a low offer, 350 dollars, and they counter-offered me 400 dollars and asked me if I knew how much it was worth. Of course I accepted haha. This was actually just last December..... yeah. Crazy. I got 10026 (Chrome UCS Naboo Starfighter) from the same seller for only 62 dollars, though that one was used, but in perfect condition and came with all pieces, manual, instructions, no faded pieces or anything.

    With the purchase of Benny's Space Squad, that brought me to 100. And that's probably missing a few additions I bought for parts, and a TON of polybags. 
  • catwranglercatwrangler Northern IrelandMember Posts: 1,732
    374 on the Brickset database's terms, but when I cut out the sets that are just a CMF, a keyring, a book or a baseplate/pack of baseplates, it's 262. I feel it won't get much higher, and I might filter a few things out when I finally get it properly organised.

    172 today.  29,975th.  Tagged the most interesting sets I can think of.  Some vintage ones I’ve picked up used to add to the collection.  That excludes my wife’s friends sets though (I let her keep her own brickset) but does include a couple friends sets I’ve bought for myself which made it into her display.

    Of the 172 that includes my 4 main current collection goals plus some extras: 
    1. modulars (have all PR & newer, though awaiting CG), and supporting buildings (other ‘larger’ buildings such as #76108, #76038, & #70620) added to the street.
    2. Architecture (a range of small to the largest #21010 and similar display such as #71040, and even #4597 which is on display in my livingroom).
    3. City (including vintage town such as #6416, #6552, #6378 with decals intact & supporting sets, such as #40358, #41129 & #40305).
    4. Winter Village (have many of the sets, but not all, plus some supporting sets like #41323 & #40262/#40623).

    - also includes 16 Duplo sets I’ve bought for the grandkids (need to keep track of those too so I don’t do duplicates, most of the sets are here for them to play with anyways).
    - Modern (post Y2K) misc smalls from Speed Champions such as #75884/#75885 (I’m a Ford guy) & Marvel (#76082, , and others (#7595, #75902) which get added to the city and/or modular displays.
    - Vintage non-town childhood sets (town was my fav as above) I’ve been able to restore (pre-Y2K) including classic space such as #6941, #6954, and  technic such as #8660 & #8712, and my only fabuland, #3629.
    - many of the giveaway GWP sets, as I do try to wait for one before a purchase.

    548 sets and 202,000 pieces - not including CMFs as they’re not sets IMO, I have a separate flag to keep track of them. 

    I also have around 2,000 minifigs which means there are more Lego people than actual people in my village...

    Thanks for that. I never knew about the other flags until investigating now. Will have to try them as I do have a couple things that aren’t sets.

    So what does everyone consider a set?  Now that I know you can create more checkboxes beyond own/want, I tagged a couple items as owned, but not sets.  Like a keychain (a minifig but not even to be assembled), and the current captain Marvel poster.  Some I’ve been seeing exclude polybags, though I have to consider them a set, as I have more than a few 80s sets with similar piece counts, which were boxed back then, though served a similar purpose for kids allowance money.  Even a set of train tracks still contain multiple pieces that can be put together.  But in looking at sets vs. non-sets, what about baseplates?  They have a set number and a piece count, even if it’s 1 or 2 (for road plates).  Is a set with 1 piece still a set?
  • MrKettleMrKettle OxfordshireMember Posts: 134
    I count CMF’s as one set rather than individual minifigures. Polybags I have no issue with. If it has a set number that is good enough for me. Oh but then I do include the magazine gifts too....
  • daewoodaewoo TexasMember Posts: 298
    A set, in my view, is sold as a set, with a unique number, by Lego.  I don't consider anything else a set.

    @M1J0E
    Personally, if it's listed as an entry on the main Brickset page, it's counted as an owned set in my collection.
    The only thing I list slightly differently are the CMF's.
    If I have a full set then that counts as one set, if i only have a few figures or extras from a series then the individual CMF's are listed as one set each. I only generally use the ACM for keeping a record discounts when buying a set and of sets built so I know which ones no longer have boxes.

    To be honest though, I would imagine that every member of Brickset has there own way of doing things so it's probably best to just do what you want, in a way that works for you.
  • ChromideChromide Ssi-ruuvi ImperiumMember Posts: 46
    I have everything that brickset lists as a set marked as a set, even the books, which I do find odd. A few of my 'sets' also include collectible Lego pens...
  • M1J0EM1J0E Calgary, ABMember Posts: 395
    Thanks for the tips everyone.  Sounds like many things, there are no hard & fast rules lol.  Good thoughts on CMF’s too, we have only a couple of the original Disney ones thrown in with #71040 so I haven’t even bothered with them.  
  • LegolisLegolis Leeds, UKMember Posts: 223
    I've been collecting Lego now since January 2018. According to stats:

    You own 110 items, 105 different.
    The size of your sets collection is currently ranked 47481st.
    We have piece counts for 102 of your sets. You own 26912 pieces.
    The size of your parts collection is currently ranked 53058th.
    We have retail prices for 59 of your sets. Their retail value is £2164.

    Although that doesn't include anything I've bought second hand so the reality is probably much higher. 

    I questioned what sort of collector I would be at first and I think Bobjack said it perfectly. We open all of our sets, they get built. The kids play with them until they fall apart to the point no one can be bothered trying to fix it. Then it gets broken down and put in the drawers for MOCs. I'd love to build a Friends themed city for them but we're just too short on space. 

    One thing I've learned is to stop buying things just because they are on offer. They end up sat in the backlog too long and it's less money for the sets I really do want.

    Apparently my count is: You own 185 items, 173 different.

    I did not realise I have that many double sets until I realised Brickset counts Baseplates as sets well. Then I realised I haven't added my other baseplates and roadplates. So I will have hit 200 when I'm done.
  • PolyphemusPolyphemus Sydney, AustraliaMember Posts: 90
    I consider polybags sets but I've only got a small handful so it doesn't make much of a difference. I exclude roadplates and CMF's. I started my own spreadsheet well before I knew Brickset existed. I'm not sure why! Probably the influence of my dad, he was a science teacher and used to catalogue everything. I update it religiously. It's a fair bit of work but it allows far more customisation than Brickset's ACM, although I use that too.

    I know the date and location of every purchase I've made since I started collecting as an adult over three years ago. I also know exactly how much I've spent, right down to the exact cent, including postage if applicable. That's a depressingly scary (but slightly impressive) column which I try not to dwell on too long!

    It also includes piece counts, number of minifigures, series name, set number, year of release and price per piece for every set. There's separate columns for special features and any discounts I may have received and separate sections for the aforementioned roadplates and CMF's, and also individual bricks purchased via PAB. Again, I'm not sure why! The nerd runs strong in my family....

    Still, it allows me to confidently confirm that as of today I have 188 sets, consisting of exactly 891 unique minifigures (inc. CMF's), precisely 140667 pieces and at a total cost of AUD $22,228.50 (seriously devalued though because of course, I've opened everything and built it - not interested in investing). 

    Phew!

    630 items, 520 different. I included everything - CMFs, polybags and GWP both unopened and built, and all my sets. I was on a mission to ensure that everything had an instruction manual, as several sets that were in collections that were given to me by friends had instructions that were long-gone. So I'm pretty sure that I have everything accounted for; most of my sets are broken down and bagged if they aren't in the city or on display shelves. 

    It's been over a year since I left my part time supervisor job at an LBR store and my buying has curtailed almost completely; other than the Mustang and the remaining Iron Man suits I don't yet have, there isn't anything that leaps out as must-buys.

    Currently at 946 sets, all unique. There are several battle packs I have multiple of, but have only counted one in the system. I count CMFs as a set for each complete series, and also count an individual if I have a 2nd one for display (such as series 14 and costumes for Halloween display). This also doesn’t include the 130 or so polybags or mixels I am trying to trade or sell right now, or a few sets that I am trying to find a few missing parts for. 

    I have 3174 minifigs, 2626 different. I’m sure I have much more than that. 

    A few years ago I found myself acquiring sets just to get my collection to 1000. Really don’t know why. Once I got there, I had an epiphany and cleared out a bunch of stuff I didn’t really want. Have been building back up from there being careful to only get sets I want.

    Someone just revived this old thread! Just noticed that my last post here was in 2015.

    My "one Lego set" figure as of now would be 876532 pcs (excluding loose/PAB parts and incomplete sets) and 8042 minifigures with 3587 unique. :-)

    As for set figures, per above discussions it varies according to what is being constituted as a set so the number changes drastically depending on what's being included. For those of you still interested in the figure, my set count in Brickset is at 3206 with 1799 different. Note that Brickset includes books, CMF, video games, key chains etc as a set in their database.

    Obviously, entering individual CMFs would inflate the figure by a lot, so for me the CMFs are entered as 1 set of 16 or 1 set of 20 etc, with any excess CMFs from the CMF box being entered as individual CMF.

    I had this motivation as well, under Rebrickable my parts count accumulates to 979,538 parts and I had this strong urge to buy something to get it to the 1 million mark.

    The same goes for the minifigure count. For quite some time, the figure stays at 7xxx and for some reason I wanted it to reach 8000. And now that I've achieved that goal, the motivation had dropped sharply. Don't think I'll ever aim for 9K or the 10K mark due to space and financial constraints. :((

    Given that I’m a MOC builder, I have to be really picky with sets. All of the vehicle builds from the 2018 and 2019 Speed Champions sets are still intact, as well as the pizza van from 2017, the truck & camper set from 2018, a couple of Creator sets, and some other ones I think.

    My main criteria for a set is if they can fit in with all the cars I have, be it my own builds, builds I found online, or set builds. I love getting the people pack sets, though. I didn’t get the beach one because it was a little less versatile than the park and camping people packs. I hope to get at least one Modular Building eventually, because something like the Parisan Restaurant or the Downtown Diner would fit in perfectly with all the cars. I’m leaning towards the diner as a number of my MOCs are cars from the 1950s and 1960s, plus I like the upper floor stuff like the recording studio.

    A couple of people have posed the question of "What is a set".  I have a number of different standards for what I consider a set.

    I believe the most crucial item in addition to having all the pieces for a set is the building instructions as this is what identifies the set and sets it apart.  In some cases, the instructions are the "set" such as #6861 - Blacktron Super Vehicle and #6862 - M-Tron Super Vehicle which were unique set numbers but were built by combining parts from 3 other sets.  

    On a similar note, it is sometimes the packaging which defines a set as in the case of the various bonus packs which have been produced over the years.  ie if you have #1499 and #1498, do you also count #1510 as one of your unique sets.  In this case I'd say that having the packaging is essential to count having #1510 as a set 

    The only exception I make to the above 2 guidelines is if there are unique elements or printed parts that exist in only 1 particular set. A good example of this is #106 Unicef Truck, where the printed side panels are what defined the set and it is difficult to find one with instructions and near impossible to get one with the box.

    Where things can get confusing is when the same set was released in different markets with different set numbers.  ie #928 Galaxy Explorer and #497 Galaxy Explorer, identical except for the numbers on the packaging and instructions.  In this case I would count it as 2 different sets.  I'm not sure of the best way to count sets which have regional packaging variants, but still have the same set numbers. Personally, I only count them as 1 unique set.

    As others have mentioned, I also consider baseplates and parts packs as sets, but only if they have the packaging with them as that is what identifies them.

    Have a good amount of LEGO from when I saw young (late 80s-mid 90s) that I still have to sort through and figure out what I have, but for a long time I just didn't have the funds to purchase LEGO, so I had a looooon dark age that finally ended in November 2016.  I went a bit (way) overboard at first, so I've had to pull back some, and I've had to admit there are certain sets I will likely just never have since I missed them (goodbye, early modulars!), but most of the modern sets that I want I've been able to get over the last few years.  Still missing some, and still discovering some that are going into my wanted list, but that's slowed, thankfully.  I don't sort my sets out at all in Brickset, so it includes a decent chunk of CMFs, but not enough to bring me under 1k sets.



    The pieces count above is off because I have purchased a decent number of loose parts to build various MOCs, so I think it's closer to around 464k.  Expecting to break 500k in the next year, which is kind of exciting.
