Earlier today, I did a post on the top 10 LEGO posts on the site for 2015. Readers also asked about the most viewed reviews I’ve done this year. There have been over 600 sets that have been released this year and I’ve reviewed around 80 of them, ranging from various themes like Creator to staples like Star Wars and Super Heroes. Note that I do have a lot of sets that I’ve purchased but haven’t had time to build and review like the SHIELD Helicarrier and Doctor Who, just to name a few.
The Millennium Falcon is very similar to the 2011 version but with some subtle changes. It is also one of my favorite sets of the year.
The Gingerbread House was the second Christmas exclusive set that was available at LEGO Brand Stores and on [email protected] during Black Friday weekend. A neat little set with some great details.
The Ferrari F40 is an iconic car that LEGO has very successfully made into a smaller scale. This set is a great display piece for any car enthusiast.
The first seasonal Christmas promotional set for 2015 was the Christmas Train which was a neat little set, especially since it’s larger than last year’s Christmas sets.
When LEGO first announced WALL·E, I knew it was an instant set to pick up. Unfortunately, there were some issues with the head and neck areas which prompted LEGO to delay the release and issue replacement parts to fix the issues. Overall, it is still an awesome set and it sits prominently on my shelf.
For the 2015 Seasonal sets, LEGO released some sets that are in a vignette style and for Halloween we got the Trick or Treat set. In my opinion, this set was actually the worst of all of the Seasonal sets for this year.
Avengers: Age of Ultron came out in theaters earlier this year and there were LEGO sets based on scenes from the movie. The Attack on Avengers Tower had a number of play features that made it a good set to pick up.
Coming in next is another Avengers: Age of Ultron set with The Hydra Fortress Smash. This was a pretty mediocre set with the some exclusive minifigures in Quicksilver and Baron von Strucker.
A third Avengers: Age of Ultron set makes the list with The Avengers Quinjet Chase. Again there are some exclusive minifigures with Vision and Ultimate Ultron. The Quinjet was a great build with some nice features.
Finally, we have another LEGO Ideas set with The Big Bang Theory. Fans of the show will definitely love the set as it stays true to the original project by Alatariel and GlenBricker which includes lots of little details from the show.
