This set showed that there is a little bit of luxury. It was one of the greatest sets of 2010 because Lego was yet to release anythin like it.

This set it has got to be one of the most elaborate sets ever. They really managed to cram every little possible detail into this set. So there should be no questions asked why this set is on this list.

The only reason this set is on this list is because it was and has been the only ostrich ever made by Lego which left many people (not me *cry*) scrambling to grab one or two of these sets.

This set left a whole lot of posibilities. One could make from this set a Lego army or many other sets. This set left you wanting more. Unfortunately the rest of Toy Story didn't.

This set is better than the regular truck because it provides a toy shop which is a new concept in Lego City. Also the little headquarters inside of the truck left almost everybody wanting more.

The stingray thing along with the vehicles and characters made this set AMAZING. I like how compact it is. The sting ray thing is really nice and could potentially be used in a Lego City harbor.

This set would be the basis of an outstanding Atlantis theme. It provides a living space for all of the divers so it makes all of Atlantis seem a little bit more realistic.

I would say that all of the Atlantian figures made this set one of the best of 2010. I also like the fact that you get all of the rings and how the blue portal actually spins and opens up. Nice Job Lego!

This was a VERY SLOW YEAR FOR STAR WARS. I think that the only outstanding set was this one because it brings back the Classic Satr Wars instead of the not-as-nice Clone Wars sets.

This set is really nice and it goes well with the first one. If Lego keeps on releasing one Christmas set per year then in a few years there will be a whole Christmas Village. That will just about top off the list.
