I went over 210 sets with over 110k pieces. Considering that I started the year with only 120 sets and 40k pieces, I think I might have exaggerated a bit with Lego buying trips to the mall. I just can`t help it, most of the sets look so good. My latest achievement was buying the Silent Mary set, because my son asked for it for Christmas out of the blue. I didn`t even think too much about it, it was good enough reason to get an extra Lego set (which I wasn`t planning on buying initially).
This year I also moved to a bigger apartment which has its dedicated loge room, so for now I have where to display the sets that are built. But at this rate it won`t take too much time before I`ll need to search for other solutions. I currently have there 2 Billy cabinets with glass doors, 1 Liathorp glass cabinet, and 1 Detolf cabinet.
Today for Saint Nicholas, my son received the Joker`s Low rider set. Looking closely at the box, I see in the top right corner a blurry image, of something that looks really really close to the Joker Manor. Given that the low-rider was release at the beginning of the year, apparently the Joker Manor was in the works/plans at that time.
I wonder how many gems like this are to be found in the art-work of other sets about sets to be released later on...
