#1: Galaxy Squad, there seems to be a little bit of a story going on, and it seems a little intriguing (if BIONICLE was up there, it would take both of my votes).
#2: Hero Factory, not much of a story, but great figures and pieces.

(1. Hero Factory: One reason only, there're from the makers of Bionicle period.
(2. Technic: I own two Technic products, but I dismantled one that I cannot find on Brickset. The other is a nice ATV that will be cherished.

It wasn't until I looked at this poll that I realized my almost all my favorite themes have all been cancelled. Too bad. Anyway, it was a toss up between Minifigures and Lord of the Rings/Hobbit. I voted the latter for my first favorite because the sets are quite beautiful, but I appreciate the Minifigures for their unique prints and accessories.

1) Technic; Why is this my favorite theme? Because:
- It tends to have more challenging builds compared to themes like Hero Factory, which one can pretty much build without instructions really.
- They tend have cool features like moving parts with motors or pistons.
- They often have GEARS involved in someway, which has always been my favorite feature from BIONICLE in the early days.
2) Star Wars; Why is this my second favorite theme? Because:
- It has awesome recreations of events from the movies.
- Its builds can definitely be difficult if you buy large sets like R2-D2 (Item # 10225).
- It has great detail minifigures of characters from the films.
Hm...I know you didn't ask for it, but I am going to include my next couple of favorites here as well.
3) Lord of Rings; Why is this my third favorite theme? Because:
- Like with Star Wars, it has awesome recreations of events from the movies (Great builds for some too.) and great minifigures. I can't think of any other reason to justify me liking it than that. (After all, I did buy all of last year's wave from Shop at Home mostly because of this reason alone.)
4) Ninjago; Why is this my fourth favorite theme? Because:
- It has a decent story much like BIONICLE did, but it was presented in much better way and format. It is by no means as complex as BIONICLE was, but it is definitely has itself an interesting world and mythology around it.
- I like the design of the sets.

I was going to pick Architecture, but that's not on here...
I dunno, to be honest. I haven't bought many sets recently, just two or three small things. I'll have to think about this one.
Posted Jun 25 2013 - 09:40 AM
Scared about the potential reasons...
#1 would be LoTR/Hobbit, while #2 would be Star Wars.
Interesting how Bionicle isn't on there... (Yes, I know why.)

1st: Hero Factory2nd: Ninjago
I was undecided about which of these would be first and which would be second, but I decided that since I have gotten some of this year's Hero Factory sets and none of this year's Ninjago sets, that'd probably speak for itself. Other themes I enjoy would be Legends of Chima (although I haven't gotten any sets yet), Friends (One set, bought for a specific part, but I do like the designs), City (don't often get sets but do enjoy helping Dad with his), The Lone Ranger (like the Western theme from my youth, but better; no sets yet, unfortunately), Minifigures (amazing, and I have a lot, but I wouldn't call it my favorite) and the Modular Buildings (which are not quite City, not quite Creator, and thus don't appear on this poll)

drats, I tried to vote HF as my first with LoTR as my second, but my mouse slipped and clicked HF as my second now HF is apparently my favorite and second favorite line.
Posted Jun 25 2013 - 11:30 PM
Alright, let's be honest.Who else voted Friends.
Bahahaha! Well, as much as I love all the new awesome rubber hairpieces...
#1: Minifigures. They're both awesome and affordable. If I could afford to spend more money on Lego, it may not be my #1, but it would still be a major contender.
#2: Star Wars. See my Avatar. Seriously, though, I've been a Lego Star Wars fan ever since it got started in 1999 (oh, the memories of that B-Wing and the Millenium Falcon) and for the longest time it was my absolute favorite theme. To this day the ships are awesome, the walkers and other vehicles are awesome, the figs are awesome, and I still have a thing for space fantasy. Need I say more? Not to mention I'm excited for the new animated show Star Wars Rebels and the movie Episode VII.
EDIT: And how many of us are excited about this year's Fall line of Star Wars? RED MANDALORIANS. AND AN AT-TE. NOT TO MENTION JANGO FETT.
Honestly, though, why wasn't Pirates in this list?
I actually had a hard time choosing Star Wars as my favorite, as Galaxy Squad and LOTR are awesome as well.
And as awesome as Friends is, (just think of all the new animals molds, too. AND THE HAIRPIECES) it didn't quite make the cut.

I only voted City as my number one even though it feels like they just rehash police and fire departments while forgetting there's more to city life than that - I'm still waiting on my hospital! Anyway, I didn't really have anything else that I buy...except for Hero Factory but I only buy them for parts and to corrupt their story so that the factory is evil and then throw in some space-time travelling shenanigans.that break the barriers between the Before-Time and After-Time of my lego universe. but I digress...
As for Galaxy Squad, I vote them as my '2 because while I've not bought any of them yet they do have my interest, particularly since the largest set is actually decent value for money.

You know, Lego, the only reason i dont buy more of your products is because as an unemployed 17 year old from a family that doesnt own 5 pools, a mansion, and a ferrari, I DONT HAVE MONEY!
Thank you, just wanted to say that the ONLY reason i dont buy more lego stuff is lack of money.
Otherwise, yeah sure, hero factory and technic, technic is probably better than hero factory, but hero factory is at least giving me LOTS of cool pieces, even if they have no discernable story element.

[color=#006633;]Over the years I've been leaning away from Bionicle and Hero Factory in terms of sets. I've been going more towards building block sets and miniatures are my favorites. Some of the coolest miniatures come from games (I'm especially happy with my LEGO City Police game).[/color]
[color=#006633;]Minifigures are always fun as well. I love mixing and matching and coming up with my own little story with a fairly large cast of characters. The Series Minifigs are very great for this as well as customized figures.[/color]

Hero Factory all day, every day.
Ninjago comes in (very) close second.
Posted Jun 26 2013 - 04:15 PM
1. Star Wars.
2. The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.
I haven't bought any Lego sets in years, but if I did, I'd buy a lot of sets from these two themes.

#1: Star Wars. I ronically, I have never officially bough a Star Wars set, but I have a lot of Lego Star Wars stuff, particularly from a large tub of Lego peices I bought from someone.
#2: Hero Factory. I like the sets. I use the pieces to build Bionicle characters. But then I eventually reassemble my HF sets. But the storyline is not all that great.

1. LOTR/The Hobbit: I love the detail that goes into these sets, and I love the movies.
2. Galaxy Squad: I think it's a really interesting concept and has some really neat vehicle designs. I hope we get at least one more year out of it to see some new alien designs. (I'm honestly surprised this theme doesn't get much love...)

Wound up picking Minifigures and LotR/Hobbit, in that order. Could easily have been reversed, though. Hero Factory also ranks high for me.
Posted Jun 27 2013 - 10:47 AM
Ninjago and Minifigures, because they're the last two I bought and Ninjago is sort of my Bionicle 'second'.
I no longer need Taipu as I have achieved the impossible.

HF first because I MOC with it, though I don't know anything about the story. I picked City as second because that seems to be the closest thing to the Modular Bbuildings and Architecture and those are pretty much the only non-HF sets I have bought recently.

Minifigures > Hero Factory
I don't buy much of anything from other themes.
Posted Jun 29 2013 - 12:18 PM
#1) Technic. Heck, the sets are just cool, and plus, it started Slizer/Throwbots, Roboriders and later, Bionicle.
#2) Hero Factory. Good contraction sets. Plus, they're from the makers of Bionicle.

Out of those that haven't been banned, Castle was always my next fave, and I like Minifigs somewhat too.

Anyway Friends is my favourite theme, followed by City I guess?

architecture is a theme for adults not kids it's not suitable for bzpower gosh
i don't know why 'advent calendars' isn't listed here though. what a great seasonal theme that is ever year. :')

Star Wars. I've got only so much money these days, so I don't buy much Lego. I probably spend more money on Lego than I should. But I particularly like the SWTOR ones, since it's been my dream to get some EU stuff in Lego form. Also because I'm an SWTOR addict. (Though maaaaan I'd stab someone for a Phantom or a Mantis. I mean the Fury's nice, but come on, the Phantom is shiniest. And dangit, I'm gonna end up buying the Defender just for Qyzen and T7 . . .)
I also like the Architecture sets. Those are pretty sweet. They fulfill my nerdier than Star Wars side.
Haven't been keeping track of Hero Factory or Ninjago even though those are apparently the things these days. I don't think I have time or money to get into a new Lego fandom.
Had to be me. Someone else could've gotten it wrong.

I was only into BIONICLE, and even then, I haven't actually built one since the Stars.
