Considering Which Lego Sets To Buy?

If you already have your heart set on a particular LEGO set, by all means buy it! However if you are new to the LEGO hobby and just wondering what makes most sense to buy, I can share with you some criteria I personally use when I go LEGO shopping. (These can also be used if you are buying LEGO for someone else.)

WHAT IS YOUR NICHE?: If you have a somewhat limited budget, I would start with this question; what is it you like to build? LEGO Spaceships? Houses? LEGO Castles? Ships? Trains? Mosaics? Cars? Robots? Or how about life-size LEGO sculptures? Depending on the answer, I would look at the currently available LEGO sets and see what would give me the greatest amount of useful pieces in that theme.

For example, if you really like to build spaceship-type vehicles, I would recommend buying LEGO Star Wars Sets, even if you don’t really care about Star Wars per se. The Star Wars theme has a lot of pieces that can be used and reused again and again for LEGO spaceships of your own design. Suitable colors, angled plates, engine parts, streamlined windscreens, wheels, antennas, etc. – lots of pieces to work with!

Or, if you like to build castles, I would recommend picking up something from the LEGO Castle Collection. They give you wall elements, arched windows, roof pieces, and other parts that can be incorporated into your own castles.

Then there is also a special line of LEGO called LEGO Technic, full of interesting pieces for functional and realistic building of model cars, trucks, motorcycles, cranes, etc. – often with power function!

COLOR SELECTION: My other criteria for buying a particular LEGO set would be the colors available in the set. If I’m after gray pieces for my own building, I would look for sets that have a lot of those pieces. Even if it is in a theme I don’t really care about.

You may also consider purchasing a LEGO-bucket that only contains basic pieces in various colors. This is a great way to beef-up your stock.

Licensed sets like LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Harry Potter tend to go for higher prices; 10-13 cents /piece. Non-licensed sets hover between 7-10 cents a piece. So, if you can find them for less, you got a bargain! Many department stores that carry LEGO have regular sales (like around holidays or when they need to move old inventory). It is worth to wait for these sales to get the most parts for your buck!
