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.
  1. 76036-1 Carnage's Shield Sky Attack
    B19c9882 3ad2 49de 8af7 8ea277d83fab
    DC/Marvel sets are too minifig-centric, so it's great to get unique, popular figures in cheap sets.
  2. 76031-1 The Hulk Buster Smash
    23021739 a5da 4a4e aeec 98ad8e85d481
    Been waiting for a Hulkbuster, and it didn't disappoint in the movie or the LEGO set.
  3. 70818-1 Double-Decker Couch
    64e279b6 2562 431b a1c3 34eae3dbe666
    Like the Carnage set, this is a great minifig value for the wonderful LEGO Movie characters.
  4. 75902-1 The Mystery Machine
    0f348194 84df 4700 bef2 143d8a8fd5ef
    Don't know who was clamoring for Scooby-Doo LEGO, but the whole theme turned out great, especially the Mystery Machine.
  5. 76039-1 Ant-Man Final Battle
    164bbaf2 51f6 4571 b37a c707c607c64c
    The otherwise trivial accessories are a clever way to deal with the scale.
  6. 75899-1 LaFerrari
    1626576c 46d7 49b1 b9df 66e5861184d5
    The whole Speed Champions line was great, this was my favorite car.
  7. 75111-1 Darth Vader
    Bda9d3a9 a3b6 42a8 8a8e 443faf53fb79
    The buildable action figures line has hits and misses, but Darth Vader is just about flawless for display or play.
  8. 76040-1 Brainiac Attack
    4e231fe9 d74e 4ae8 b08a 08aba9c5be77
    Continuing my praise for good minifigs in small sets, this is the sweet spot of price/models/figures.
  9. 21303-1 WALL•E
    D8550e00 1b1b 45f6 8f4a 5fcb94b3aca5
    An amazing recreation of the character. Slight issues with the neck building technique kept it out of number 1.
  10. 76042-1 SHIELD Helicarrier
    64b88d13 20b4 4657 ad97 6e8b9b206ee2
    I don't think I'll ever disassemble this. Good chance it will remain my largest LEGO set for years.
