My LEGO Top 10


Ever since I swallowed a LEGO brick as a 6-year-old, I have been fascinated by the colorful plastic bricks and infinite building possibilities they present. Luckily, there is no shortage of construction toy sets to choose from. The LEGO Group has been around since 1932, which means they recently outgrew their LEGO archive, where they keep one copy of each set they have ever produced. What most people don't know, however, is that dozens of obscure and out-of-production LEGO sets from a multitude of different themes are still available for purchase through third-party websites such as BrickLink. With the fourth feature-length LEGO film hitting theaters in February of 2019, I've taken the opportunity to rank my favorite (and least favorite) LEGO themes of all time.
