    I've seen all three versions built in person at the Lego store and it's most impressive. My favorite was the Squirrel

    I really like the Ocean House. Don't know where I would put it, but it is very tempting.

    so in for that Milano. Maybe a few of the city sets. Otherwise, waiting to see Simba , the LOTR set, the UCS Sail Barge, and the skiff.

    merit: @Vector Oracle - the brickfan has all the city sets (among the rest of t he themes) including the red panda/atv one

    Loving the new City set reveals. The Lego delivery truck and muscle car transport are definite buys for me. Ditto with the construction excavator (looks much better than the one I MOC'd together) and tram sets. The tour bus looks a bit small so that's probably a pass for me since I already have the previous red double decker tour bus. The space roller coaster looks neat but don't have the space for it, so that's a pass.

    The Thor vs. Surtur set looks great and would be a good basis for a MOC Balrog from LOTR.

    Well damn, that was fast. Already got my May 4 order from LEGO. Looks like they have a facility in California now?

    Catching up on summer leaks/reveals...I think Robot World might finally get me to buy a coaster. I've off and on thought about a couple amusement park sets to go with the ferris wheel from a couple years ago, and this one is so homage-y I'm finding it hard to resist. The rest of the City reveals are neat, just not my bag (though I might be on the hook for the jungle ATV just for Johnny Thunder). Nothing in Star Wars is super grabbing me, though I got a laugh out of Luke's Mech - real SWTF vibes there.

    Technic's got me again, the Apollo Lunar Rover is a lock; as is the Artemis SLS. Us realistic-ish space fans are eating good this year.

    That's so funny. I was stoked for this new Rollercoaster but am disappointed. I hate the colors and the weird robot looks out of place and I have no nostalgia for whatever theme it's from. I really want to like it though because it has an arcade built in and a robot themed coaster sounds fun. I think I might get the Creator Rollercoaster instead, but I'll wait to see more pictures. I really wish this had a red and black theme like Spyrius which I assumed this would be.

    A bit basic on the posing but it's sooooooo much better than that Vidiyo version. HOLY SMOKES Johnny Thunder! Double win.

    Not going to go crazy but I think 2-3 Red Panda's is about the right number.

    I’m interested in the Speed Champions Lambo V12, the Batman mech armor, and maybe the Lego delivery truck (although the $100 price tag makes me hesitate- maybe I’ll make that a Christmas gift). This has been a fairly light year for me in terms of Lego stuff, but that’s okay since I can spend more money on TF, Origins, and TMNT.
