WOW!

As expected, the top 2 sets were Haunted House and Helms Deep.

The votes were 19-18.

EB's Members Choice set of the year is...

Haunted House!

Thanks for all the votes guys.

The reason I decided to do it like this was that I only counted sets that I saw more than around 4 times in the votes.

Sets worth a mention:

Haunted House
Helms Deep
Kingdom's Joust
Jabba's Palace
R2D2
Funhouse
Sopwith Camel
Uruk-Hai Army
Desert Skiff
Ghost.

There were other sets which may have got more votes than the last 2 such as Town Hall or Quinjet but I didn't have time to check.


Thanks again, TT.

Out of 30 voters, these Top 13 sets got more than 4 votes (according to my Excel sheet):

Haunted House 20
Battle of Helm's Deep 18
Kingdoms Joust 12
Jabba's Palace 11
Town Hall 10
R2-D2 9
Winter Village Cottage 8
Sopwith Camel 7
Vampyre Castle 7
Quinjet Aerial Battle 7
The Dynamic Duo Funhouse Escape 7
Uruk-Hai Army 6
Wolverine's Chopper Showdown 6

Ghost polybag and Desert Skiff both got 4 votes, which is very good for sets of their size. An Unexpected Gathering got 4 votes too - I suspect it would have got a few votes more if everybody would have remembered to count it as a 2012 set. I didn't. :blush:

Sounds about right, thanks. I was in a rush and just thought it was better that I got the winner right which I did.

No problem. I just had too many important things to do, so I spent an hour with mapping the results into Excel instead. I understand that not everybody has the luxury of being completely unable to sort their priorities. :tongue:

There were 61 sets on the whole that got votes and 38 of them got two or more.

I would have to put An unexpected gathering high on the list.
If that counts as a 2012 set.

1: 9466, The Crazy Scientist & His Monster.

This has gotta be one of my favorite sets in recent years.
I spent way too much time making zapping and vrooming noises with it after I'd put the kit together.

No shame though, that's what it was made for!
