    ^that and how I heard LEGO Master treats the builds.

    ^ Vanquishing them to Goshen, NY?  That is a horrible, horrible fate.

    Apart from Barracuda Bay I feel like going on a Technic buying spree again. I might finally get the retiring Mack Truck if they still have some stock plus the Land Rover and the Dodge Charger.
    Aiming for early June so hopefully Lego is getting stock then or I guess I'll have to wait.

    So, looking at a few years here I'm going to be mainly focusing on sets of note rather than every set, because this would get rather long otherwise:

    2016:
    #75150 : Vader's TIE Advanced vs. A-wing Starfighter - need a decent Vader's TIE
    #75155 : Rebel U-wing Fighter - coz I've got all the other versions

    2017:
    #75192 : Eventually...

    2018:
    #21311 : Voltron (maybe)

    2019:
    #10267 : Gingerbread House
    #75257 : Millennium Falcon
    #75252 : Imperial Star Destroyer (maybe)

    Which isn't bad for the past 4 years! And as for 2020:

    Creator:
    #30575 : Train - it just looks really nice and well-made
    #31107 : Space Rover - a good addition to the NASA series. Speaking of which...
    #21321: International Space Station - so now I have a shuttle

    DC:
    #76157 : Wonder Woman vs Cheetah - that armour! Although I'm not as fussed about the rest of the set, I want to support my favourite DC film property

    Marvel Super Heroes:
    #30453 : Captain Marvel and Nick Fury - bought
    #76162 : Black Widow's Helicopter Chase - another helicopter? My dedication to getting at least one set from every MCU film is no longer accurate (I bricklinked Mysterio) so I might not get this, but I actually haven't yet got one of those helicopter cockpits, and in some version of the future where I have some free time and a serious increase in skills I might MOC the AoS Bus and the cockpit here might help - one can dream...
    #76151 : Spider-Man vs Venom - the new helmet for Venom is great, but I'm on the fence about the entire set. We'll see when it's officially revealed or in shops.
    #76144 : Hulk Helicopter Drop - bought
    #76140: Iron Man Mech - good value for money
    #76141: Thanos Mech - same, plus a minifig Thanos

    Star Wars:
    #75254 : removed as I can get something even better!
    #75292 : The Razor Crest - the even better
    #75317 : The Mandalorian & The Child - it's rare I buy an 'offshoot' BHz, but this makes it.
    #75275 : A-wing Starfighter - still not sure about some parts of this set, but I am invested in the UCS series enough to warrant getting this anyway

    Overwatch:
    Still wait and see on these...

    Speed Champions:
    #30342 : Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO - bought
    #76899 : Lamborghini Huracán Super Trofeo EVO & Urus ST-X - I love the Huracan (which is why I got the poly) so I'll get this. That Urus though. Words fail me.
    #76895 : Ferrari F8 Tributo - bought
    #76896 : Nissan GT-R Nismo - bought

    Technic:
    #42115 : Lamborghini - please look good, please look good, please look good, please look good - I'm sure technically it'll be just as complex as the Porsche and the Chiron

    New ones have been added above in italics

    Well, it got long anyway because of the spaces - I tried to remove them, honest!

    The May 4th offer has been revealed and well, I liked it at first but now that I look at it needed to be another 20th Anniversary edition for Episode IV:

    It's not a 20th Anniversary set.  That ended in 2019.  It's just a rogue mini-scale thing set.

    My list is getting fairly short

    -that ultimate batmobile.
    -Very likely, whichever of the 2 pirate ships of this year turns out to be better (probably the barracuda)
    -the bookstore, unless they end up releasing a bunch of super cool 200€+ sets.

    I'm interested in more, but they aren't really must buy.

    No - I already punted SW Microbuilds because of the SDCC, May the 4th and those other exclusive low-production, no special pieces or minifigs micro-builds that don't seem to have any uniform direction.

    Much like I immediately wrote off Brickheadz because I wasn't going to track down the low-number SDCC SuperHeroes.

    I just saw the new Airport sets on the front page today.  My first thought was, "OK, now I know what I'll be buying this year!".  Then I took a look at the extremely juniorized builds, and then my next thought was, "maybe not after all...".

    I had the same initial reaction, and looking at them again, I think it's definitely a "wait for it to be very reduced" decision...

    Ok, I took a moment to check on those 2020 City sets withoit pictures and let me just say that I will get as many undersea creatures in the Brick and Pieces possible and as for the Airport well, I am making one MOC myself so I'll buy the big plane and the Junior set on sale.

    Apart from the two new Minecraft sets, I'm definitely looking seriously at the City Deep Sea Explorers sets that have been announced. Love the new Ray, Great White (?), Hammerhead and Anglerfish figures! We only have a couple of the small sets from 2015, so may have to rectify this omission.
    Otherwise, #31107 Space Rover looks like it might be interesting and I'm also looking forward to seeing the Ideas Blacksmith and may look at #31109 Pirate Ship, but I'm not sold on the brick-built sails, when we have such nice fabric sails in sets like TPoBB and TLNM DB.

    Just saw Jangs new video on the summer City sets. I really like that underwater sea base. Reminds me of the Lego Town Divers sub theme in the late 90's.
    I do like that ship and I do like that airport. Looking forward to buying them eventually.

    I was going to get the Airport sets to create one myself but it's only planes and a few buildings.

    I need to check with my mother before gifting her that Hedwig build as she is part of Jehova Witnesses. Those houses look half done which is a shame really as with a few modifications they could serve as homes for my citizens giving that I am working on one myself:

    Since my family has me on a tight LEGO budget now, I’ve given up on the Star Wars theme sets.  But I want that A-wing Starfighter bad.  So I’m buying it for my brother in law for his birthday and hoping he gets bored with it.  Wish me luck lol.

    I am taking a big wait to see if my $1200 stimulus package arraive before May 4 to order as many SW sets as possible that said, I need to be careful with what I am adding after that order.

    Well this set looks interesting, that Skull Dragon can be used as a prob either in an underwater graveyard or in a above water grave, should I buy it alone or the entire set?

    you mean buying an incomplete set on bricklink with just the dragon? May still be more expensive than buying the whole set, here it's not very hard to get 30% off on Ninjago

    Am curious to see if you got a check since it says Puerto Rico by your name.  No one I know there has gotten one.   
    My brother in law will be getting his set.  And I did not buy one for myself. But I did buy the D-O and the Brickheadz to get the promo for myself.   Not sure how I’m going to hide the package when it arrives tho.  Maybe send the family on a Lysol spray treasure hunt.  That should take all day.

    Puerto Rico is eligible if people fill out Federal Taxes, the thing is the media and politicians have been scaring the local population to not support the pro statehood option and to in fact boycott the plebiscite because it is bad to have to fill out Federal Taxes but when a monster of a hurricane comes or benefits like this come around they like to paint how PR is discriminated by the current US administration despite the fact that we keep finding warehouses full of supplies. Sorry for the small political points, I don't welcome things other than LEGO buying sprees here but I am more than able to help you understand the situation and also, political member like Nydia Velazquez have always oppossed any attempt for Puerto Rico to be a state and only push her personal political preference of an independent nation over what the people here want.

    Someone here mentioned the new AT-AT and here is my take:
    If it's $160 I can justify the expense then again, I will buy the Blockade Runner for $200 but while this beast has 6 figures and can accurately seat 3 of them in the cabin I can't believe I bought the original AT-AT for $100 in 2003 (what has more versions this or the MF?). It's a shame it isn't an AT-ACT as that beast surely is needed:

    @Lordmoral.  Thanks for the info.   So does that mean you know of people who are getting the checks?  
    I hope you’re doing well there.  And that those warehouses have the supplies you need.  Sorry to keep off topic.

    Yeah, Federal employees and contractors qualify as well anyone who files Federal Taxes and those supplies carry things like donated medicine that wasn't delivered on time and some were left to expire. What I find interesting is that the Cingressional Democrat group that was investigating Puerto Rico because Trump discriminated against it hasn't turned up anything but they sure raised a ruckus for a phone call which after looking at it there may have been some evidence tampering by the attorney side.

    👌, so more sets have been officially revealed and Brickset has a wonderful article about that with a lot of great pictures (no Overwatch yet but I hope for more locations sets that I can integrate to my City). I honestly hope that this second half of year is good on monetary terms so I don't have to change the list.
    For May 4 or 5 I'll get:
    -Tantive IV;
    -Raider AT-ST;
    -x2 Mandalorian BP;
    -Ben Hut;
    -Bantha vs Skyhopper;
    -Bricks and Pieces;
    -x2 White Baseplates.

    For June:
    -Black Widow Helicopter;
    -Wonder Woman Radar;
    -Lighthouse of Darkness;
    -City Underwater Base (to qualify for that Undersea Polybag).

    July:
    -BrickLink adult Ankylosaurus and that Galliminus;
    -Wu Lab;
    -Brick and Pieces or Roadplates packs.

    For August:
    -Submarine with Anglerfish;
    -x4 Blue Baseplates; 
    -Road plates (one of each current pack);
    -Ninjago Skeleton Dragon;
    -Roadplates.

    September:
    -Razorcrest;
    -x4 501st packs;
    -AT-AT;
    -Brick and Pieces.

    October:
    -Some Dots sets for parts;
    -Pirates of Barracuda Bay;
    -x2 Blue Baseplates;
    -Road Baseplates (again one of each pack).

    Let's see what the coming months bring in terms of sets and monetary funds.

    The Mandalorian miracle happened.  Sets ordered from the Star Wars event arrived while the family was out shopping.
      And they even came back with multiple cans of Lysol!!!  So we got to send cans to the pet groomers and the church and keep one for those unmarked mysterious boxes that arrive from up around Chicago.
    Not real sure I really like the D-O but since it goes with R2D2, BB8, Yoda etc, I got it and risked another intervention.

    Why would you waste non edible dissenfectant when you can use it on cleaning Lego boxes? Use fruits and vegetables to create edible dissenfectant according to your nutritionist recomendation. We never go wasting products that keep our hobby going forward on self consumption.

    We need to be careful when we open the economy and the processing plants need to provide PPE to their employees. Even LEGO has told me that they are limiting what products we buy just to make sure there is enough for everyone hence why they are having problems with sets like Pirates of Barracuda Bay and the UCS Millenium Falcon to put back  in stock.

    Guys, what are your thoughts on 31078 "Tree House Treasures" ?

    It's like the most average Creator set and yet it's "exclusive" one. It's 20 bucks now.

    Is this a new set that I somehow missed?
  • karritkarrit USAMember Posts: 103
    It came out in 2018.  I bought one because it was the only Pirate themed set available other than the Roller Coaster.  It's a cute little set with a Skull Island & Ship alt. builds.  I don't know who is selling it for $20 though.
