Winter 2010 LEGO Buyer's Guide
This list is not based off the new catalogue but Brickset.com and Lego.com
It may not be complete.
The general rule of thumb is that each LEGO element in a set averages about .10 cents. Based on that I compiled this list from this summer's catalog sorted to show which sets are worth buying. I left out keychains and other special gear, as well as Bionicle. Which I just remembered I forgot. Heh. Green boxes indicate sets where the piece count runs under .10 cents per piece. Red is anything over .15 cents. The chart is sorted into price brackets, to see which set gets you the most for your money. All prices are rounded to the nearest half dollar.
PPE stands for Price per Element.
You can download it or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send you a PDF of the file.
If there're any typos or suggestions to add; or if you think it should be sorted a different way, or would like me to email it to you sorted a different way, please let me know.
EDIT: Now all minifigs are accounted for. You're welcome Anthony.
EDIT 2: Now includes all Technic and Racers sets for 2010.
