LEGO 250 REVIEWS: THE FIRST 50

We’re one-fifth of the way through my original goal of reviewing the 250 Lego sets I have purchased. (We shall not talk of the fact that I’ve somehow managed to end up with another 30+ since I’ve started, no we shan’t….).

It’s time for a quick review of the reviews: an index to what we’ve seen and how they’ve rated.

But before that, as any adult knows, a hobby isn’t a hobby unless you can quantify it and uses stats to pretend it’s a sport.

Let’s break down some numbers, shall we?

The first fifty sets total in excess of 12,000 pieces, and cover 28 themes and sub-themes: Alien Conquest; Atlantis; Brickheadz; Chima; City (including Arctic and Spaceport sub-themes); Classic Space; Creator; DC Superheroes; Dinosaurs; Friends; Hidden Side; Ideas; Kingdoms; Lego Batman Movie; Lego Movie 2; Marvel Superheroes; Mighty Micros; Mixels; Modular Buildings; Monster Fighters; Ninjago; Pharaoh’s Quest; Polybag + book; Space Police III; Star Wars; and Ultra Agents.

The most reviewed theme so far is, as should possibly be expected, the bedrock theme City, with six sets, as well as three more in the Arctic and Spaceport sub-themes. Four Lego Movie 2 sets have been covered. Creator, Hidden Side, and Ninjago have all contributed three reviews each.

I’ve deemed eight sets excellent; eighteen as good; and sixteen as average. Four sets have been poor; and another four have been dubbed the worst.

So much for stats. What sets have ended up where? Here’s the run-down, with handy links should you have missed any and wish to argue:
