Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

Recommended Posts

@hrdknxbrix LEGO has never approved a modular building on Ideas, and never will. This is because Ideas is for expanding the Lego portfolio of themes (such as Minecraft, Doctor Who, etc.), not previously established and still running lines like modular buildings. Sorry, but it ain't happening.

Exactly this. Someone is better trying their luck with the BDP if they want to publish a modular building. If I ever try my hand at getting a LEGO Ideas submission approved I'd probably build a retro item. We've had the PacMan Machine, the Atari, the NES, the Fender and the Polaroid Camera. You're better building what LEGO is more likely to produce rather than what you want as a set. Also once you've submitted an entry you can't do anything with it like sell plans on Rebrickable or have a third party company like Mediaeval Bricks or their parent sell your idea for you for no small period of time afterwards.

I might misremember but I think there will be an IDEAS set that would suit with modular buildings nicely?

This would have to be a "joke post," as we know it would never happen, but.....

Ghetto / Projects high rise
 - Meth/drug lab in basement

 - First floor street facing shops, with cage barriers, and roll down garage doors (Bodega, Dispensary, Liquor store, pawn shop)

 - Cool "dilapidated" building techniques

 - GWP: That "Hobo on the bench" set we have all seen.... lolz

But seriously, would be cool..... one of the store fronts could even be a clinic (hospital tie-in) or a police sub-station....

There will be a botanical garden set, that was originally done as modular compatible, but we don't know what it will end up as.

Is there any reason we haven't seen a butcher yet?

With the existing sausage, t-bone and turkey leg moulds, as well as all of the different dogs to build into the story-telling, I can't be alone in wanting this.

I guess the entire Lego company is vegan/vegetarian! 

Now seriousness,  I feel like they haven’t asked for butcher’s shop as I read their “common” wishlist, such as hopsital, post office, school, etc. None of them mentioned “butcher’s shop on thier wishlists so i assume it’s less desirable. 

It migh be displeasure to find a dead animal in freezer, don’t you think?

Regardless ( without freezer with dead animal in it), i would loe to get one for my city!

In Brick Clicker's latest video he says that the 2025 modular will most likely available on December 1 again.

I’m mildly surprised that they would release the next Modular Building on December 1 agin. But I guess they change the marketing plan because of the Christmas shopping stuff.

Welll, I mean it’s no secret.

Personally i like to wait until there is GWP to go with modular Building set like I ordered Jazz Club to get Moving Truck and Museum to get Retro Food Truck.

I would not mind a butcher. Some time back, lego released a fish monger with a minifig and side build.

I guess a butcher could have been part of the shelved city market that they mentioned.

Wonder if this will really be true for this year, or that December item will be a different Icons item?

I feel like this year's release will be a 'normal' size modular after that big museum set.

Hospital and university are two establishments that minifigs badly need, for which there has been no substitute business in past modulars.

I wonder if the 'Year of Space' might influence the choice of modular. E.G. An observatory with opening roof.

But wouldn't all the space exhibit in the Natural History Museum account for that?

It's a nice idea, but I don't know how it would fit into a modular street, as observatories are normally in remote places. Also, I have the Bricklink Designer Program observatory, so for purely selfish reasons, I hope it's something else! :wink:

Brick Clicker seems to think it is the modular  and you're right it will most likely be normal size since it's suppose to be a corner modular this time. Hospital and university id wany to be in the size of the AS and Museum.

I think the next modular building would be a corner building. We got the recent corner building - Boutique Hotel before we got two straight ones - Jazz Club. And Natural History Museum.

Now that you mention it, those three buildings seem awkward when placed together. The Jazz Club is the most out of place. 

I am hoping they come up with something that will either balance out the lineup, at least in terms of exterior aesthetics, or at the very least go with the Museum, and the Hotel.

Well i was just speculating that the next Modular Building would be a corner building after two straight buildings (Jazz Club and Natural History Museum)….

But i get what you mean about Jazz Club. I would love to see somethign that is “nomral lay” colored. Honestly, I like Jaz Club’s architecture and color scheme. Just place it a bit far away from Boutique Hotel and Natural History Musseum.

I got the first modular add-on and it’s a construction site. My sister helped me build it. As soon as we finsihed building it, it is….qute underwhelming. I agree with folks that it is pretty basic. My sister said she thinks that add-on is little weird (she is not a Lego fan herself but she loves helping me building Modular buildings). Also, she said instruction was pretty tricky for her to follow even tho building technique is way simple. 

But there are a few things I like about:

A.) it’s a 16x32 baseplate 

B.) it looks nice next to modular buildings. 

C.) it includes a toilet and printed sign (of course not exclusive)

I’m not sure about ordering an ending station add-one at the moment. Unlike add-ones, I would love to see TLG to release actual 16x32 modular building. Like, one 32x32 modular building and one 16x32 baseplate modular per a year. It might be unlikely but I keep dreaming….

EDIT: I just ordered Vending Stand add-on becuase of 2x Insider Points along with a few sets.

Is this an unofficial set? Or an official one?
