Who got bricks under the tree?

Share your Holiday haul. I'll start, 9500 Sith Fury, 9525 Pre Vizla's Fighter, and 10225 R2-D2 (my second). Oh and a LEGO 2013 Calendar. What did you guys/gals get?

No bricks for myself, but I did buy the Shellraiser set for my nephew and then built it for him. So that half counts.

Yeah, my family & friends don't really try to buy me anything LEGO or Star wars anymore. My Daughter got some friends sets, and my son got one of the Duplo books

Only set was Jabba's Palace. LEGO-related, I got the Batman visual dictionary, and the LotR and Clone Wars video games. Also got some money, so I will be going to the LEGO store tomorrow to pick up Arkham.

I got An Unexpected Gathering under the tree. It was unexpected. ;) (Truly. I kind of thought that it would be too pricey to make a gift, given the price increase from first introduction to final release. Great set, though!)

I bought myself Jabba's Palace and let my wife and daughters wrap it. Does that count?

No worries; that's what I did. My wife's Christmas LEGO-giving has degraded to that over the years. It has gone from:

For a few years, she picked out a set and bought it for me.
For another few years, I told her exactly what I wanted and she bought it for me.
This year, I bought it myself and wrapped it.

I got another 10225 R2 as well. I couldn't help myself when everyone was selling him for $40 off MSRP! Return desk is in the future for me. I'd like to pick up 9525 with my credit if it's available...is it a fun build?

Oh, and then I also got 10216 Winter Village Bakery and 9515 Malevolence.

My kids got me the Bespin Planet set, and the wife got me a Darth Vader in his own display case with a display card, similar to the Kenner/Hasbro displays, which is very cool since Vader is the man! Then I bought the new A Wing, Rancor Pit, and Battle of Hoth at my local Lego store today.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a Lego-filled Happy New Year!

My wife left this under the tree . . .

I enjoyed it plenty, took about an hour to build. Very swooshable and that Blue/Grey/White color scheme looks awesome. My 3 yr old had it smashed and in peices in no time so the fact that it takes little time to put back together helps :lol:

@ piaknowguy: The wife has good taste, that B-Wing is hands down my favorite set right now, at least is the one I look at the most on my shelf.

I got the Hobbit set with Bilbo and Gollum. And a self-built Angry Bird. And Santa Yoda.

I had bought Unexpected Gathering a few weeks ago, but built at the two christmas days.

The only thing I've received so far was the Hobbit set and the Space Marine CMF from Cas in the Holiday Exchange. Christmas part 2 (wife's relatives) is tomorrow. We'll see how well that goes. My nephew is getting a zipbin. The back of it reads "holds 1,000 bricks." I'll bet I could stuff 2x that into the bin. Probably 1x1 plates, but I could do it. :)

I got a Mummy from my Mommy; a Tatoinee planet from my sister; and a Desert Skiff from my mother too. I also snagged an Unexpected Gathering with some Xmas money.

I got a last minute Gugan Sub set from my wife. She said she didn't have time to wrap it for Christmas Day. Told me to think of it as a 2nd Hobbit Christmas. Like "2nd Breakfast." :lol:

Not exactly Lego but I got 2 Oyo Sports minifigs. Hall of Fame Tony Gwynn and Antonio Gates. 2 players I'm a fan of. They were the first Oyo sports figs I have gotten. I'm a sports fan and I could see myself collecting a lot of these in the future. They are pretty neat how they look like Lego figs only the elbows bend.

I also bought myself a Hobbit goblin king set for 33% off and a escape from mirkwood spiders for 27% off. I guess that counts. They were good deals ;)

I got The unofficial Technic Builder's Guide (this was on my list), also got the Helicopter 9396, this was a surprise (I think my wife checks my browser history). Probably won't build it for a while, I still havn't built the Lamborghini she bought me 2 Christmas's ago, waiting to build a display case first.

I also gave out several LEGO sets as gifts as well.
