a. Same as yours, but not really relevant as i am only buying for my City currently
b. #31095 or #60234. Both for my carnaval-part of the City
c. Dunno really...
@eMJeeNL very nice sets, I bet they will be very nice addition to your city
2. Definitely #21303 (once they fixed the issue with his neck!) A great middling-sized set, and looks brilliant on the shelf above my desk.
3. Of sets I own, I only have a handful in this category. The Winter Holiday Train, the recent Passenger Train, Benny's SPACESHIP!... but #21309 has to be the best, as the only one permanently out on display!
Of sets I don't own, who knows... if I had wanted it enough I would have found the money for it I guess? So that probably answers that one...
1. Under A$10? *Laughs* I guess #40290 60 Years of the Brick set is technically a $0 set.
2. Special mentions to #3860 Castle Fortaan (loved Heroica!) and #21102 Minecraft Micro World, but I'd have to go with #41597 Go Brick Me for sure. Hours and hours of use with those bricks and instructions, while still producing good-looking models.
3. #70657 Ninjago City Docks. The intricacy and level of detail is unlike anything else I've ever seen. I suppose #70620 would be better, but I'm not going to judge a set I've never actually owned.
@Baby_Yoda Exactly I have Go Brick Me too and it is really funny to create your own brickheadz with it
I have a hard time reconciling my favorite old sets with favorite new sets. I'll make a list for both then : )
1. 6887 Allied Avenger - I loved the octagonal cockpits for Blacktron II. If only they kept the original black and yellow color scheme and all black suits. Either way, loved this set as a kid.
2. 6081 King's Mountain Fortress - Introduced the glow in the dark ghost, made good use of the raised baseplate, and was probably my favorite set to build as a kid.
3. 6399 Airport Shuttle - One of the first sets I tracked down after my dark age was over. Monorail sets are still tons of fun to build and play with to this day.
1. 70841 for the same reasons everyone else already listed. Hope Lego makes a whole "Benny" classic space theme.
2. 76125 Hall of Armor - I just built this yesterday so maybe that's influencing my decision some, but it was really fun to see it come together and love all the various suits included.
3. 75192 Millennium Falcon - Hope to be able to buy one day. Probably won't though. Still looks like an amazingly fun and challenging build.
I will have to check them I would love to buy one for my brother.
very nice sets especially #6887 really like that one, also do know about any other new similar sets to #70841? I have found just this one #70821
My favorite mid-sized set (though a bit more expensive at an original retail price of $70) is #79003.
Unlimited budget sets - for sets I own it would have to be either #10237, #10220, #70816, or #7191 (this one again for the nostalgia).
If I had an unlimited budget to buy any sets I don't own, it would be #5571, #6285, all of the Forestmen sets, and/or some of the Star Wars UCS sets such as #10240 and #75192.
#6928 Mercury Crawler or #6872 Xenon X-craft
#8860 Car Chassis
#4504 Millennium Falcon
More considered, value for money, build experience and playability or coolness response:
#70841 Benny's space squad
#31084 Pirate Rollercoaster
#75060 Slave 1
Could do that again and again and still easily find more sets for an 'honourable mention'...
about 50€ : I would say ninja mech dragon, maybe I would rank attack of the morro dragon higher, but it may be above the price range.
unlimited budget : so far creator expert Big Ben, maybe soon beaten by ninjago city when I'm done building it, and probably later by Disney castle.
At 30-40$ it's def #31048. This is one of my all time favorite Lego sets. It's just pure Lego goodness at it's finest. And there's a moose!
At any pricepoint it has to be #70810. This was the set that got me actively enjoying Lego again as an adult. It's whimsical design caught my eye and I just had to have it. I had so much fun building this one that I just didn't yet realize was even possible with Lego. It's the one set I have that's always built up. I've only ever taken it apart to clean it and to re experience the build.
Under $10 #6879 Blizzard Baron (own - actually have 3 of them)
$40 - $50 #1682 Space Shuttle Launch (the RRP isn't listed but I assume it's in this general vicinity) - have this guy proudly on display in Brickadelphia
Cost is no object: The set I have: #6597 Century Skyway. Got it when I finished 5th grade. 24(!!!) years ago. Still love it. And it's also in my city. I missed out on Black Seas Barracuda and Airport Shuttle, though I do have a monorail running through my city. If I ever hit the lottery....
Under $10 #70841 Benny's Space Squad. Hands down. It's nothing short of a love letter to the fans, and in my opinion, it's a perfect set. And no, that's not just nostalgia: I worked at an LBR store for 4 years, so nostalgia is long gone as I began to spend so much time around Lego again.
$40-$50 #21020 Trevi Fountain. One of my favorite architecture sets
Cost is no object: C'mon, is this even a question?? #75192 MilF. I haven't built her yet as I need to finish Docking Bay 327 and make my coffee table first. It'll be a good summer project once the school year ends. As far as runners up, I love my Super Star Destroyer, and I also really like my #42043 Mercedes Benz AROCS. #21309 Saturn V is an astonishingly good build, in my opinion, and one of the best sets in recent memory.
I'm fortunate that I have most of the big sets I want, and I can live without the ones I don't. My wish list is small enough: the Creator Mustang, the Aston Martin (which I don't love but I have all the other Creator Expert vehicles minus the original VW Beatle which is fine), and the new Lunar Lander. I also need the Iron Man Hall of Armor and War Machine Buster as well as the Mk. 85 from the Avengers Compound Battle to complete my Iron Man minifigure display. That'll be a sweet birthday present to myself once I finish the 4 grad classes I'm taking this summer.
