    Hey I never buy retired sets from ebay however am thinking of buying some (mint in sealed boxes), if you could go back and buy 5 sets what would they be?

    I'm thinking in particular of the haunted house, it's about €420...

    Some of the older pirate ships were great but they've going for thousands.

    and I should point out purpose of these purchases is to build them myself, display for 6 months and then put away to re-give my son in a few years and let him build them

    The original Pirate ship
    The castle from 1984-86 when they were doing robin hood.
    The Mega Core Magnetizer
    Ice Station Odyssey
    The Lego Technic Jeep from about 2009.

    All sets I never got as a kid, and wanted desperately, except for obviously the jeep in 2009 when as an adult I couldn't afford it.

    I agree about some of the pirate ships. I got 6285 Black Seas Barracuda on ebay a few years ago, not mint but with the box and instructions. It's fantastic, wasn't very expensive either, about €100. Definitely my favourite set.

    5 sets are tough, but I'd be delighted with any of these:

    6271 Imperial Flagship
    6277 Imperial Trading Post
    6542 Launch and Load Seaport
    6090 Royal Knight's Castle
    6765 Gold City Junction

    Love those 2 sets but probably not going to spend €500+ on misb

    Shame those 2 classic themes seem not to be made anymore :(

    Yeah my list was a "wildest dreams" type of thing. A realistic one would probably look quite different :(

    1980s Space Lego was the best.

    6931 and 6980 were my favourites.

    I always remember wanting 6990 Monorail and 8860 or 8865 Technic car.

    The big Lego spaceships from the 1980s were superb. They were simply incredible in terms of build and playability.

    I "bricklinked" 10210 Imperial Flagship it's fantastic! Got all but the masts but made them out of round bricks.
