    Love it! Thanks for sharing your creation.

    Is there anything you need to know about the Friends version that would help you make a decision? I have the set but have yet to build it.

    @Exetrius: Ah. Thanks for clarifying.

    Marvel Superheroes 2016 Rumors And Discussion

    March. I'm planning to pick it up too, though not for the same reason.

    2016 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Yeah, why didn't they make it a red and white combo like the popcorn stand? The pink just clashes... Still waiting to see the Bumper Cars set.

    In the picture I'm looking at now, it does appear to be a light brick. Better question: Why isn't anyone talking about the orca? Must get that for a Sonic Adventure MOC! Not impressed by the treehouse. It mirrors 31010 too much (which, incidentally, I built fairly recently), except that it's detachable and comes with two minifigures rather than one. Wish they went in a different direction.

    Minecraft 2016

    Thanks for the look at The Fortress, j2g! Digging the Creator-esque, 4-in-1 feel, and I like how they represented the iron bars. I wonder how this compares with The Desert Outpost. Exetrius, you raise a good point about the enchantment table. I can't see anything resembling it here, but I could have missed something (I'm not sure what that yellow part is for). They might be saving it for The Village. Hearing that there will be a Minecraft D2C set is unprecedented. Exciting for me, even if the price point will make it unlikely that I'll be able to buy it. If the theme lasts another year, hopefully they'll make villagers available in a small set next. Personally, I can't have enough skeletons. More Endermen would be great, though, and I'm glad that they're not exclusive to The Ender Dragon. I do agree with you that a library would be a given, although they feature a crude one in 21124.

    2016 City Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's only a snapshot so there's probably more to it once you get into the finer details, but my initial feeling is that the sets from the Arctic line were seemingly more involved and sold the theme better. Aside from the large set, which features the (odd) volcano, I'm not getting strong vibes.
  9. That sounds too hilarious for someone not to try it.

    Minecraft 2016

    Yeah! They say it's the largest Minecraft set thus far...so it beats out The Mine? Maybe there are 1,000 parts?

    2016 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Quoting myself because I wasn't completely off! Brickset reports that the Hot Dog Stand will feature a Hot Dog Suit for the male minidoll. http://brickset.com/article/18855/london-toy-fair-report-disney-princess-elves-friends They also report that there's a Bumper Cars set! Looks like I guessed right on that one. But if that's 41133 and 41131 is the Advent Calendar, then there's still one set unaccounted for...

    Which set should I buy?

    Fair point. I guess it also depends on if you care more about the interior or exterior. And then there's the matter of playability (i.e., Sandcrawler is mobile, whereas the Firehouse isn't).

    London Toy Fair coverage has revealed that 21127 is called The Fortress!

    Which set should I buy?

    I've heard that the Firehouse is a repetitive build. Maybe knowing that might help narrow it down for you.

    Haha, no need for that! I'll keep it on my radar for the future.

    2016 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Costs $7 here in Canada. And yeah, thanks for the reminder on the balloons. It didn't occur to me at the time that the Party Train set has a red one, which I could also use to match the Balloon Cart polybag. Not willing to pay $13 on it, though.

    2016 Friends Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Nice. It looks like a decent parts pack. I like the balloon, as it reminds me of the Balloon Cart polybag I missed out on. I'll keep an eye out for this one if I ever see it on sale.

    Which set should I buy?

    Good idea focusing on sets that are about to be retired (if not already). If you can get it on sale, even better.
  19. Fritzy

    Which set should I buy?

    That would be my suggestion also, although that too is one I have yet to purchase. It may or may not be retired, but if you can get your hands on it, I can recommend The Penguin Face-off (which I do own). Since you're thinking of collecting Batman sets from scratch, this would function as an ideal starter set of sorts. Another option could be Batman & Super Angry Kitty Attack, which isn't strictly DC material, but it's a good value-priced set if you don't mind that there isn't much of a build to speak of. If you want to get both Robin and Batman, the new Batboat Harbor Pursuit might be of interest, as it's the cheapest way to get them in the same set (aside from the Juniors Defend the Batcave set). Feel free to ask if you're still undecided.

    What did you buy today?

    I've noticed there's been a sudden surge of interest in that set, which makes me glad that I picked up when I saw it on sale. Don't get why it retired so soon, though!
  21. Fritzy

    Which set should I buy?

    Yeah, I believe it's retired. I have that one. The Carnage set is on my list of future purchases, so I can't speak for it. In general, I'd recommend focusing on at least one large set since the smaller ones will be easier to come by. Are you ruling out Batman sets for this particular spend?
  22. Fritzy

    Which set should I buy?

    I haven't heard good things about the Rhino and Sandman Supervillain Team-Up set, honestly. If you still want to get it, you're probably better off waiting for a sale. As far as other Spider-Man sets, did you have anything in mind (perhaps from previous years)?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see all of these sets on clearance sooner than usual.
