So its 2010 and Lego has more sets being released. What interests me most right now are the Atlantis and Toy Story themes. Well for to be fair I am only interested in a few sets for the minifigs. The Atlantis theme has a Squid/Octopus Man. But the set Gateway of the Squid is 40 dollars, I can't pay that much just to get 1 minifig. There is also the Shark Man. It comes in a 15 dollar set Wreck Raider, so I guess I could pick one up for the Shark Man. But probably not. Then there is the Manta Warrior which is 3.50. Definitely affordable. But the question is how many do I get? Just one for the coolness factor? Or maybe I want a few, so I can have to have minor cameos in coastal dioramas such as manta warriors terrorizing a fisherman. Or even dozens to make a small army.
Also for the Toy Story theme, I am quite interested in the Army Men on Patrol set. It comes with 4 toy soldiers from the movie Toy Story and a small jeep. The jeep is a bonus for me.
At the back of my head I think about how every dollar I spend on non-castle sets means that's money I can't spend on the upcoming 2010 Lego Kingdoms sets. If I was rich I guess I wouldn't have this dilemma. I think I might end up making this a Lego centric blog. I can't get Lego off of my mind. At least not with all these cool sets being released this year. I think that's enough for today.
