Happy new year to you all! I’m a little overwhelmed by such a massive selection. It seems like I can’t keep up with this hobby. lol. Anyway, I agree that Avatar 2 was incredible! It was more than 3 hours long, but I didn’t want it to end! I could have totally watched another 3 hours! 😀
I liked the first Avatar when I saw it on cinema while it was still rather new. I’m still a bit wary of films longer than 90-100 minutes, though.
The Chinese New Year set looks incredible! That’s my first choice.
Hmm, as an old Blacktron fan, I bit the bullet to hit the GWP threshold, and used up some old VIP points that were about to expire, as well as buying some sets on sale. So, well, the incentive worked in having me spent extra money, but I can’t let it become a habit…
(The Blacktron Cruiser would go well with the Bugatti Bolide, although I think a Cruiser would work best on roads, and a Bolide in open space, to be honest…)
Otherwise, I think I’ll try to get a couple of pre-sorted CMF:s separately, as well as attempting to snag the purple classic helmet and airtanks from 80111 LEGO Lunar New Year Parade separately, if the prices aren’t deterringly high. But I guess that’ll be about all, considering new Lego after this splurging…
Blacktron! Oh, wow! I wasn’t expecting that! Of course, now that I think about it, they did release some individual minifigs with the Blacktron logo in the past few years.
Well, yeah, Blacktron 1 and 2 combined has got almost as many shoutouts as Classic Space. It’s a perennial favorite among both adult fans and designers…
I agree that the Friends sets are really good this year. I would love to get the shopping center. It’s modern, bright, and I love the style.
