    So, to update the post I made back in July, now it's after my birthday...

    Un-Unbought:

    #21044 Paris Architecture - Skylines (I thought I had bought this, but then I couldn't find it, so I thought I imagined getting it. After looking for something else, I found it again! So I did buy it after all - I would've felt stupid having 2)

    Bought since July:

    #76124 : War Machine Buster
    #76125 : Iron Man Hall of Armour
    #75243 : Slave I – 20th Anniversary Edition
    #75895 : 1974 Porsche 911 Turbo 3.0

    Taken off:

    #10269 : I don't want a motorbike
    #71044 : I'm not a Disney collector (despite what my superhero sets might indicate)
    #75246 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75248 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75249 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75250 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75254 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75255 : Not OT SW spaceship
    #75256 : Not OT SW spaceship

    Still definitely want (with additions):

    #60228 : Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
    #60229 : Rocket Assembly & Transport
    #10265 : Ford Mustang
    #10267 : Gingerbread House
    #21045 : Trafalgar Square
    #31096 : Twin-Rotor Helicopter
    #40353 : Reindeer, Elf & Elfie
    #70842 : Emmet's Triple-Decker Couch Mech
    #76119 : Batmobile: Pursuit of The Joker
    #76139 : {Batvehicle D2C set}
    #76144 : Hulk Helicopter Drop (but that's a 2020 set, isn't it?)
    #75257 : Millenium Falcon - the best non-UCS Falcon in quite a few years

    Still might want (with additions):

    #75252 : Imperial Star Destroyer - This is very much a 'wait and see how I feel' purchase, because it's very expensive and I have the previous one and just how much do I want another big wedge of grey? I haven't even built the old one.

    I've also added a few more maybes to the pile, but they're not essential...

    So I'm definitely getting there. Now I wonder how my 2018 list has progressed...

    Some interesting and some meh! sets for 2019. Nothing really grabs me from the SW range apart from the microfighters and then there is only three sets (down from four this year, is it the end of the MF range?).
    City looks to be pretty limited as well, I'm not into emergency services, so just the harvester lorry and the snow mobile. Speed Champions Senna, Nascar and Mini look good. TLM2 sets are lacking something for me, but once I've seen the film I may change my mind.
    This years modular did nothing for me, the style and colour didn't really fit with the look of my street, so next years will have to be special to be bought.

    Could be a cheap year all round!
    Looking back after almost 12 months. I did complete the Microfighters collection, got a couple of SC and City sets and a few TLM2 sets.
    Lunar Lander was an unexpected purchase and I may add Saturn V to that before the year is out.
    Not as cheap a year as I thought!

    I still definitely need #21155 The Creeper Mine and will very likely also get #21320 Dinosaur Fossils.
    I'm on the fence with #10267 Gingerbread House at the moment. Although it looks great, it's "Winter Fantasy" and not "Winter Village" and I already have Santa's Workshop.

    So, to update the post I made back in October, now it's after err... another few weeks...?

    Bought since October:

    #31096 : Twin-Rotor Helicopter

    Taken off:

    #76144 : Hulk Helicopter Drop (only because it's a 2020 set)

    Still definitely want (with additions):

    #60228 : Deep Space Rocket and Launch Control
    #60229 : Rocket Assembly & Transport
    #10265 : Ford Mustang
    #10267 : Gingerbread House
    #21045 : Trafalgar Square
    #40353 : Reindeer, Elf & Elfie
    #70842 : Emmet's Triple-Decker Couch Mech
    #76139 : 1989 Batmobile
    #40433 : 1989 Batmobile (well, that's not confusing is it?)
    #40337 : Gingerbread House (again, totally not confusing)
    #40338 : Christmas Tree
    #75257 : Millenium Falcon - the best non-UCS Falcon in quite a few years

    Still might want (with additions):

    #76119 : Batmobile: Pursuit of The Joker - with the two new Batmobiles just launched, not sure I need a third...
    #75252 : Imperial Star Destroyer - This is very much a 'wait and see how I feel' purchase, because it's very expensive and I have the previous one and just how much do I want another big wedge of grey? I haven't even built the old one.

    Now I need to be careful, as the 2019 Brickset Secret Santa is running, and I don't wish to make my Santa's job any harder!

    ^ "#76139 : 1989 Batmobile
    #40433 : 1989 Batmobile (well, that's not confusing is it?)", eh one is the UCS type right? Of the UCS sets I am saving my cash for the big one: UCS Millenium Falcon (my name is: Luis E Morales Falcon so that ship holds a special place in my family). I have the cash but that is for emergencies.

    ^ Yep, the 76139 one is the UCS version. I'm joking about how the names of the sets are identical: the number isn't exactly easy to remember unless you're familiar with them, and the images (either from a distance or at low quality) are fairly similar too, as they are of the same source material.

    I remember back in the day when the UCS Slave I came out, and there were people trying to sell the much smaller version for the same price as the UCS because they looked the same from a non-expert eye. I expect there might be similar issues here, but seeing as the small one is a GWP, it won't be quite as bad.

    Bet you anything that someone will try to sell #76119 as either the GWP or as the big one, just to see if they can...
