BEST LEGO OF 2015
There were lots of great looking sets I didn't get, but here's the best of where my money and shelf space went in 2015.
- •76036-1 Carnage's Shield Sky AttackDC/Marvel sets are too minifig-centric, so it's great to get unique, popular figures in cheap sets.
- •76031-1 The Hulk Buster SmashBeen waiting for a Hulkbuster, and it didn't disappoint in the movie or the LEGO set.
- •70818-1 Double-Decker CouchLike the Carnage set, this is a great minifig value for the wonderful LEGO Movie characters.
- •75902-1 The Mystery MachineDon't know who was clamoring for Scooby-Doo LEGO, but the whole theme turned out great, especially the Mystery Machine.
- •76039-1 Ant-Man Final BattleThe otherwise trivial accessories are a clever way to deal with the scale.
- •75899-1 LaFerrariThe whole Speed Champions line was great, this was my favorite car.
- •75111-1 Darth VaderThe buildable action figures line has hits and misses, but Darth Vader is just about flawless for display or play.
- •76040-1 Brainiac AttackContinuing my praise for good minifigs in small sets, this is the sweet spot of price/models/figures.
- •21303-1 WALL•EAn amazing recreation of the character. Slight issues with the neck building technique kept it out of number 1.
- •76042-1 SHIELD HelicarrierI don't think I'll ever disassemble this. Good chance it will remain my largest LEGO set for years.
