    Sets that Resemble Household Utensils and Other Equipment

    Compiled by Dentarthurdent. Updated 24 October 2009. Contains 7 sets.
    This compilation of sets is a handy tool for anyone looking to adorn their homes, cottages, kingdoms or desktop backgrounds with what are, without any doubt, superb efforts by the Lego company to make replicas of household utensils through their crafty manufactures.

    Magnificently littered with a range of significantly gray Star Wars battleships, cruisers and other 'things,' this list is definitive and a panacea for all Star Wars fans, non-fans and slavish devotees. The recommendations made for the proper utilization of these sets are in no way prescriptive and should be tested thoroughly before being put into practical use. Use this list at your own risk. Enjoy.

    Sets that Really Should not Have Made it to the Shelves or our Beautiful Homes

    Compiled by Dentarthurdent. Updated 03 April 2010. Contains 8 sets.
    This bricklist is the controversial companion to its predecessor and consists of those sets that really should have been thought a bit more about before being released by Lego. Superbly littered with a collection of those painstakingly annoying sets that made you cringe, this list will enlighten you in ways unimaginable. The set with the worst design. The set with the utterly useless baseplate. The set with the ugliest minifigure. The set with the most worthless bricks. The set that will make you vomit. The set that will make you vomit and then eat your own vomit. The set that will make you vomit, eat your own vomit, and then vomit again...I digress, this experience is relative – but the scenarios are endless.

    Peer within if you have the gall to do so. Peer within if you want a glimpse of the complete failuredom of Lego. Oh heck, just peer within!

    P.S. This goes out as an Easter gift and appreciation to all those wonderful brickset users who favourited my last bricklist. Thanks guys!! I hope you enjoy this one!

    NB. Also, this is a wholly creative piece of work and no defamation is intended.

    Sets designed by Adam Grabowski (aka Misterzumbi)

    Featured BrickList Compiled by Herr Zombie. Updated 08 June 2017. Contains 86 sets.
    Following the good example of Mr. Mark Stafford, here is a list of my sets, or sets that were influenced by me. Please read the descriptions for further info.

    As a LEGO designer you will get a copy of every set you designed, if project leaders feel that you provided enough ideas, sketches and so on, you will get one too. Kind of a portfolio in 3D
    I owe all these sets below although I can't remember buying a LEGO box for myself in the past 6 years or so, so I guess I contributed enough to make them happen.

    There is no guarantee for how "complete" this list might be. I built so many sketches and models thru the past years that I can't remember whatsoever, so this is literally based on the boxes I have at home.

    Sets designed by Jamie Berard [Unofficial]

    Compiled by danny316p. Updated 02 July 2017. Contains 35 sets.
    Other people have tried to list all of Jamie Berard's sets - what's special about this list? I tracked him down on Facebook to ask him firsthand which sets he did. His response was detailed and precise, but making it readily available (and easy to follow with pictures) on Brickset seemed like a good idea. His comments are in quotes, the sporadic other notes were info I happened to know (let me know if I should add something).

    Newer sets have been added (by Brickset staff?) that did not appear on Jamie's original Facebook list, but have been publicly attributed to Jamie elsewhere (such as in official designer videos advertising the sets).

    This is a list for making a Hogwarts from the Harry Potter theme. It would be rather expensive to follow this list, so it is more for inspirtation. Another thing, I have it set to hold flesh charecters. If you have any suggestion or comments, leave them on my wikia talk page (a link is provided on my profile).

    Update: New sets added to make a more detailed Room of Requirment

    Update 2: Dark Forest and Black Lake Added

    Thanks for making this the number one "How to make Hogwarts" bricklist! Last time I checked, it was also number 51 out of all of the other bricklists!

    Redesigned Star Wars Sets

    Compiled by stevotherad. Updated 01 July 2014. Contains 114 sets.
    This is a list of every Star Wars ship that has been re-made as of 2011. It does not include sets with ships that have been re-released, but not changed (7140 X-Wing as 7142 for example). It also does not include ships that have been repackaged with different or more ships, but not redesigned (7146 Tie Fighter repackaged in 10131 Tie Collection or 7166 Imperial Shuttle in 7264 Imperial Inspection). It will not include mini-scale or midi-scale sets, only system/minifigure. Ultimate Collector Series sets are also omitted, UNLESS they are minifigure scale. Sets redesigned for the Clone Wars TV series are inlcuded. If a ship is part of a larger set (the redesigned AT-ST in the Battle of Endor, for example) it will be inlcuded. The purpose of this list is to assess LEGO's redesigns and determine whether they are improvements or not. It also serves as general reference.

    From 2011, some creator sets include a minifig and also more variety than just standard houses, including lighthouses, log cabins, tree houses and shops. This turns it into one of the most exciting and collectible lines, with minifigs, multiple instructions and relatively sophisticated builds.
    NOTE: Does not include Modular Buildings or other special sets that have been included into the Creator theme.
    This list is actively being updated and was last updated Feb 2017. Please email me if I've missed something, or to remind me to maintain the list if there are new sets that match this criteria! Dave

    The Millennium Falcon is one of (if not) the most famous starships to ever fly across the Star Wars Galaxy. Although it appears to be a piece of junk this amazing starship along with it's daring pilot, Han Solo, has escaped the Empire time after time, and still goes on doing that to this day in that galaxy far, far away. This is the evolution of the Millennium Falcon in Lego form.

    I love every set that Lego model designer Jamie Berard has created. Since the other model designers (Mark Stafford, Adam Grabowski) have created their own list, I'm creating this as an homage to Jamie unless or until he creates his own. I make no claims to this being complete. It's based on the best information available to me.

    The Evolution of the Minifigure

    This Bricklist will cover the evolution and many variations of the classical LEGO Minifigure. Now this will not fit in the captions so here is the origin:

    Back then, LEGO only made play sets without the minifigures. When the play sets were losing popularity and kids didn't buy them LEGO did not know what was wrong. Until in 1978, a brave worker, Jens Nygaard made a little man (after 50 prototypes) and there began the minifigure.

    The focus of Town and City sets of the late 1990s up till the present has been on "action" themes. However, a town is a lot more than just police stations and petrol stations. These sets are the houses required to build a real proper (minifig scale) town.

    I only noticed how houses have "evolved" as I was developing this list. Please contact me (from my profile) if you think I've left out any sets.
