[MOC] Unofficial B-Model for the 10264 Corner Garage

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I'm back with another alternate model, this time for the latest modular - 10264 Corner Garage. I posted the exterior in the set's thread back in February and had to put the project on hold for a bit. I came back to it this month to finish the interior and you can see the result below.

It uses 2190+ pieces, so about 85% of the original set. A lot of the very specialized pieces and Technic pins left over. Initially I wanted to make 3 fully furnished floors but it soon became apparent that I wouldn't have enough pieces for everything. The floor would have to be compromised a lot due to a lack of plates (since the original has an unusual floor shape) and there also weren't enough pieces left for furniture, without combining colors willy-nilly. So I settled for a store on the ground floor and an appartment on the top.

Building these alternates, I'm starting to realize why Lego hasn't produced a classic straight modular for a while. The latest ones we had were DD, DO and PR - and while DD's and PR's sidewalks are straight, the buildings themselves are more corner-y. Having only one exposed side makes the building looks less interesting standalone. I think I will go back to corner modulars or adapt Lego's philosophy of "straight-but-corner" for the future. Seems like more fun.

Enjoy the pictures below. You can get the instructions here.
