Lego Shop Modular arrived after initially being delivered to a completely different street despite shipping box having two perfectly legible address labels. Nice person who received it walked it over herself. Unbelievable!

Ok. So tonight I will start building this Venetian Houses set. I got Red Bull set aside to assist me, and I’ll keep an open mind to “missing pieces” maybe being in the next numbered bag ?

I did open the set, it comes with an inside box for extra strength (and that obviously didn’t work too well 😉), and bags numbered to 17; most of them having around three bags per number…

I’ll let you know how it goes… 🤞

Yes, happens a lot pieces at the end or start of the bag opening step may be in the next/previous bag. (for these sets)

So far so good. I’m now at the end of bag 9 out of 17; and the smaller building is up and the larger building footprint is started…

I’m liking all the detail, with the canals, the birds, the brickwork and the façade details and of course the roof.

Just a question: are the seals supposed to tell the unique number of the set? I have the Bowling Alley and Venetian Houses, which are numbered 2302 and 2402 respectively. However, I’ve seen a lot of sets on sale with the same numbers?

Correct. My Venetian Houses has number 23O2 on the tape tabs. I think they are more a packaging date indication then a “serial” number…

Here is an explanation I found on other eurobricks forums…

The first two numbers are the week of the year…
The letter is the Country of packing (O is for Billund, Denmark)…

The last number is the last number of the year of production. So a 2 means 2022

Has anyone built the Modular LEGO Store yet? Do you like it? At the time I thought it was the wrong scale and a bit plain, but hoped that it would grow on me, as I like the detailing of the facade at the top. But it doesn't look like it has much in the way of interesting techniques. And having now watched a video review and can't say I'm impressed, so considering selling it, especially as it's going for $450+. I could get 10305 for that, which feel much more impressive and entertaining. Can anyone tell me that I'm wrong and it's actually great fun?
