My favorite until yesterday was the Burrow.  Not the biggest set around, not the most important Harry Potter location and definitely not the greatest play features, but SO cute and so much love in that design.  Beautiful minifigs, too.

As of yesterday, my new favorite is my newest acquisition, the Alien Conquest Earth Defense HQ.  I've lusted after it since I saw the first teaser pics, read every glowing review including the silly reviews on Amazon and stared at it in TRU displays.  I always knew it was a great set.  But I really fell in love with it when I actually brought it home and built it.  Aesthetically, it's a beautiful military sci-fi design.  As a play set, it has unlimited possibilities based on a few great action features, a perfect selection of minifigs that allow a wide range of scenarios, and the fact that it combines military and scientific roles.  It makes a great shelf model AND a great toy, and my kids spent hours playing with it yesterday and today.  That's a perfect Lego set, to me.

As someone appointed me on how much the Agents sets are worth, I just remembered I have a dismembered Agents 2.0 Robo Attack set. I've started a personal restoration project on it, and it reminded me how it's one of my favorite sets. The figures are awesome, the robot is the best LEGO has made, and the pieces are cool. :sweet:

Well my favorite set ever is 6276 Eldorado Fortress, although I've never owned it.

My favorite set I ever owned is between 8877 Vladek's Dark Fortress and 7094 King's Castle Siege.

I really like the 10197 Fire Brigade. It's not only the largest set I own, but a nostalgic throwback to set 6477 Firefighter's Lift Truck from my childhood. The fire truck sure went through a huge evolution...

My favourite would be one of the Forestmen sets, probably 6054, the Forestmen Hideout. Just loved playing with it a "few" years back.

Of the sets released after 1995, I think I'll say The Battle of Helm's Deep which was just released. This set got me back into LEGO after nearly 20 years.

In the future, I hope for a Rhosgobel set (home of Radagast, the Brown. If it is nice and green, features Radagast, a giant eagle and some animals, it could be my favourite set ever. I think I'll give it a shot in creating it myself. :)

About the "Rhosgobel" set: Unfortunately, I don't think this will happen. I believe they will only be making sets of things seen in the films.

Mine has got to be 6080: King's Castle: http://www.brickset....ail/?set=6080-1

All those wall pieces have been so useful over the years, and even just as a built set, it's amazing :wub:

Medieval Market Village is my all time favourite set! It has everything in this set, and if this set had been released back in the days of the King Leo castle, it would most definitely have come into my possession back then, a set like this one was a childhood dream, which never happened until January this year when an unexpected late Christmas present arrived from LEGOshop!

Before this one came out my favourite set ever was the 2nd Hogwarts Castle with the working clock, that was an amazing sets! I'm looking forward to Lord of the Rings coming to the UK as I think Helms Deep is bound to go down well! :D

For me, from among the newer stuff that I currently own? It's a tie between the Medieval Market Village and the Aliens Conquest Earth Defense HQ. my all time favorite from childhood was the classic Space Cruiser.

918 - Classic Space One Man Ship.  This was the first set I got that I can remember.  I built it and took it apart so many times when I was a kid.  I could build it from memory.  

A few years ago I got it from the lego trove at my parent's house.  It was missing the cockpit roof (4x6 trans yellow plate) - I need to pick a new one up.

More recently there are too many good sets to pick just one.

Lego chassis 8860. Got it for Christmas when it first came out (I think I was maybe 10-11) and it blew me away. It was huge and imposing, and so real. Moving engine, working gearbox, adjustable seats. It was like one of those exploded drawings in a reference book made real.

All my Lego ended up being sold or donated when I got older, and 8860 is the only set I went back and bought from eBay to have again in my collection.

Definitely The Burrow set, followed by Atlantis; Portal of Atlantis which is a fun set, if a little uninspired in design, but comes with come fabulous minifigs, I think there's 7 all up, yeah, 7...

of the smaller sets... I think maybe the POTC Fountain of Youth because it comes with the 3 Pirates (and I think a skeleton) as well as some cool transparent blue pieces, and some dark green ooh, and the cool waterfall sheet... it's only a small set but it's cute!

The 10188 Death Star simply for the sheer volume of detail and playable features. The thought that must have gone into designing it!

The MMV and Helm's Deep are my current favorites.

Ahhh! So much choice! Maybe the 7965 Millenium Falcon. But then I really like the 4184 Black Pearl! Theres to many of them! But then the 10188, 10129.  :enough:

Basically, I can't decide.

It seems like I visit this thread a lot, always changing my mind. :tongue: Shelob Attacks is my latest favourite. I can't say enough times how perfect the LOTR figs are! My favourites out of all the figs ever made. Although this year's SW and Superheroes pretty much tie that...

Anything electrical en technically advanced will do.

But for now I'll go with my first big set after my dark ages. The 8275 Bulldozer!
It's kinda heavy, is packed with PF parts and has wireless control. Nuff said.
