[MOC] LEGO Custom Modular Buildings Lego Store

Recommended Posts


I would like to share my MOC design of Lego Store Modular Building. Just like many people, I am waiting for LEGO to release their modular store set but I couldn’t wait enough and designed my own. I tried to design it as simple as possible, using common pieces so that people can design it, modify it or purchases pieces for reasonable prices. On the other hand, I gave attention to modular buildings guidelines so that the building would fit nice with others.

I got my initial inspiration from 40145 Lego Store set. It includes 3464 pieces and three levels that can be separated easily. It has a height of 30 studs, meaning that it is very similar to other latest modular buildings like Parisian Restaurant, Detective’s Office, Brick Bank etc. In my design, I tried to focus on different aspects of Lego Store in each different level. In the entrance floor, I included Pick A Brick wall,  Build Your Own Minifigure stand, few sets on shelves, cash register and few small sets to display on window. I used the second floor more as a showroom where customers can check out their favorite sets assembled. I have included several mini builds* of original sets such as Disney Castle, Ninjago City, Ewok Village, Ghostbusters HQ etc. Also, I built bigger shelves compare to first floor to store bigger sets. Finally, I decided to use third floor only for employees and storage. Employees can eat, drink and rest at the third floor. They can also go to the roof to have fresh air using the stairs at the corner.

The design includes a lot of pieces. The reason is that I have used a lot of Tiles, for floors and for sets boxes. I have used ‘LEGO Logo’ sticker that comes with 60097 city set. I would suggest you to get set stickers of 60097 or 40145 to make it more realistic or you can just print a Lego logo and stick it on the panel at the front. You can also print set images in 2x2 Tile size and stick it on different set boxes sitting on the shelves. I tried to make the set as modular as possible, meaning staff like shelves, mini builds, even stairs are attached with simple stud pieces and can be modified or substitute very easily

The design is available on Rebrickable website. I think it is a fair price considering the size. If you decide to go for it, you will receive .lxf file for Lego Digital Designer (LDD), .io file for and .xml file to upload part list to anywhere you want i.e Bricklink. You can generate a pdf instruction using LDD program which may be easier for you to build it. Also since you will be receiving design files, you can change it according to your desires if you want.

*I have used several mini builds designed by Adeel Zubair. I would like to thank him for allowing me to use his mini build designs. Please check out his Flickr page as well!

Here are some pictures. I hope you like it. I am open to every suggestion!

This looks good, are you going to actually build this?

I am planning to build it around summer. All parts cost around 300-350 USD, so I need time.
