I wish my brother and I had rediscovered LEGO just a few years before we did (Christmas, 2014). I would love to have gotten a Town Hall. We probably would have gotten a Haunted House, too.

That's my wish, too ! :-) 2012 was a strong year. It would be cool if we could come back in time and buy our favourite sets from past for their original prices. However, there is no point to be sad and live past. In my opinion, 2015 and 2016 were very strong years in terms of number of exceptional sets designed and released by LEGO. And many of them are still available in LEGO shop ! :-)

Whenever I lament missing out on awesome, retired sets, my mantra is "just make sure you get the sets you want going forward. It's all you can do."
