It would have to be a huge set so I would have loads of parts to work with, but the Millennium Falcon is too gray and the Taj Mahal is too white so something like Firehouse Headquarters or Ninjago City. A very large Technic set would be ok too.

The death star 75159. I'd have 23 friends to play with. Can act out scenes and dream about flying across the stars above me with Carrie Fisher as I fall asleep. 

Or a Cargo train set with remote PF and a chest of batteries and spare track

Hard to resist Medieval Market Village. There's enough pieces to rebuild creatively, and enough minifigs and animals to do some storytelling...

Creator 3n1 'island adventures' it seems like the logical choice :P

Either I could fashion a house/escape vessel out of nearby parts, using the lego set as inspiration, or if that fails then just take really nice pics of the set haha

I guess I'd go for maximum playability... but I probably didn't land on the desert island with a load of batteries so motors are out.

It's close between the 8460 crane and the 8459 front end loader, two favourites from my childhood. But although I love the technical aspects of cranes they're always just a little frustrating to play with because there are so many things you can't pick up! Since there's presumably plenty of sand on my desert island that I could shovel around the 8459 wins it :)

picking from my own sets has the be the hogwarts castle set, the amount of pieces is the winner for me but wondering helecarrier with its motor might be better idea.
