Meh, not really interested in the Avengers line. Thor looks good, but I was hoping better for poor Iron Man.

The $120 price tag on Jabba's Palace will be a serious dent, especially when the Epic Dragon Battle is the same price. As much as I love SW, it will probably have to be the dragon and the awesome-looking snake men. I think I'd rather have the Desert Skiff anyway. I already have the old Jabba and I love the look of the new Boba, not to mention I could use the skiff itself alot more than the palace. The only downside is I'll be missing out on the Twi'leks, of which I have none.

Epic Dragon is a must have for me; that thing is just outrageously awesome. Some of the other Ninjago monsters are really trick as well; great epic fantasy monsters to have even though I'm not into the whole spinjitsu silvaness.

Jabba's Palace is really trick but we already bought the last version of it so not really a 'must have' now.

Vampire's Castle? Oh hells yeah... gotta have that one.

LotR sets are priority one though. Already told my wife "We HAVE to buy every set... obviously..." she rolled her eyes and said "Oh fine...." which sounds like authorization to spend stupid amounts of money on LotR sets =)

Guys, I think you forgot about something...

Fucking Lego Deadpool! And he won't even be in one of the large premium sets (not that it would have mattered, I would still get it! :D )

Forgot about Deadpool, but that is pretty awesome. Although I won't actually end up getting him, I would love to have him as a standalone minifig.

Same here. Like I said, not really interested in the Avengers line, but I see some great uses for a Deadpool fig.

LotR sets are priority one though. Already told my wife "We HAVE to buy every set... obviously..." she rolled her eyes and said "Oh fine...." which sounds like authorization to spend stupid amounts of money on LotR sets =)


The problem for me is whether or not I'll have enough space to put all the sets. Looks like its time to build ANOTHER set of shelves....

I saw a few things about the Monster Fighters. It's great that Lego is doing monster stuff again. I'm tired of only having skeletons and whatever they put in the Minifigures line.

What's REALLY great is that they're bringing back the old ghosts!

I for one am really excited about the Avengers sets. That's probably more due to my predisposition to comic books and super heroes than to the actual sets themselves, but I'll take what I can get.

Not quite. I think they have a different face than the old ghosts.

I don't qquite get the fascination with ghosts. I mean after the cool glow in the dark effect wore off (and it did so quickly!) they were just boring&bland. And that was way before my dark ages...

I just always saw one in the LEGO magazine just sitting there in that castle my mom wouldn't pay for, glowing (in the dark) and teasing me! It was the ghost of the spirit that tells children that their parents are cheap stingy bastards for not getting the cool LEGO sets instead of stupid things like vegetables and utilities.

If one of my friends had had one and I'd found out first hand that they sucked I'd probably not have become as tantalized as I am, but dammit I have ALWAYS wanted one of those guys! and that set has TWO! Different faces sure, but that sets also chock-full of those bone-looking pieces, which will make all my vehicles considerably more metal.

Yea, my old ghost has a smile instead of a frown. These ones also have the hood tip on their heads, while the head on the old one was just rounded.

Still kind of neat, nonetheless.

I think the new ghosts look better than the old ones. IVhorseman pretty much summed up my views on the ghosts though.
