• A year of sets - 2012

    Compiled by Dodge. Updated 31 December 2012. Contains 140 sets.
    This will be my third annual list of the sets I've picked up this past year. This is an enjoyable process for me as I can reflect upon the year that was and see how my collection has grown.

when the first series of Batman sets came out a few years ago, I was not able to purchase many of them due to monitary reasons. The reimagining of these sets has allowed me a second chance, one that I could not pass up.

I deemed this set the best in the new series of City Police this year. Plus, the bear is a great addition!

I think this was on sale at the time and I couldn't pass it up. Not too bad for pieces and figs.

This was my first Technic set in over a decade. I was looking to get more into the gears and motors that Technic offers and I thought this might be a good gateway set.

Superman was the first comic that I collected over twenty years ago. I could not pass up the opportunity to have the Man of Steel in Lego form.

I was able to collect a complete set of this series, so I won't bother listing them one by one. A good series. Not sure if I have a favourite from it though.

Received as part of a birthday present from my Mother. The token Lego gift. Oddly enough, received the same set from her again for Christmas for the same reason.
