New modular building? 10224 Town Hall
Posted 09 January 2012 - 10:23 AM
I would love to see a Town Hall Modular...or a cinema, or post office....or I have seen someone suggest a 30/40's style police precint...any of these would be very nice.
I would also be keen on some interesting earthy tones...or perhaps make use of the Atlantis style columns...of which I am hoping to get a whole stack in my Bulk order ;)

Do you not think that a Cinema would look a bit drab inside? Afterall, it's just a big screen and many, many seats... The Post Office would have been amazing, but of TLG have just released the 'Winter' themed one, so that's not going to happen

If the price is going to be around $180, I would think the building would have to be wider than the standard to justify the higher price. And if there is going to be columns made with the Erling brick, 32x32 would be way too small to use 4 of those. I don't think (and hope) they will be using the 2x2 round grill brick for columns. That would go against the modular buidling code which usually uses more advanced building techniques. IMO.

I can't see a problem going away from the usual 2 x 16x32 base plates (32x32) as with the last modular, the Pet shop, you can easily split them into 2 seprate 16 wide buildings so we already we can have different sizes in our modular theme.
I'm currently doing a couple of Mod's on the Fire Brigade modular, one with a 48x48 base plate the other using 6 x 16x32 baseplates to have a surface area of 64 wide by 48 deep and both are easy to connect to other modulars as the link pins go in the same place as all other modulars and it allows side windows beyond the standard modular size.

Or is it called the Erlinger brick? Anyways its the 1x1 brick with 4 side studs and one top stud. The one Jamie uses to make the columns on his Town Hall.

That, or the high piece count is due to Robie House-style walls consisting entirely of 1x2 plates.

I expressed my wishes to rerelease 10182 and 10190. He had heard several customers about it stating there was a rumor they were up for rerelease. He said he is not aware of a rerelease of these sets but knows there is a very high demand for it... Several people call about it every week.
He also said that in December he had a presentation of the 1H2012 sets. He also saw the new modular (could not say what it was but of course it is Town Hall) and he could also not say when it is released. If the presentation was about 1H2012 then of course Town Hall will be released soon... at least before July...

It would be great of course to have the old modulars back, but unlikely.

Piece http://www.bricklink...tem.asp?P=4460b is still produced. It is even in 10223 Kingdom Joust. And it was in dark red in 10218 Pet Shop
The color is not important for using moulds right?
