  1. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    That's a catalogue image.

    Why? It looks nothing like the prelims we normally see. It looks finished.
  3. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Pretty sure at this point.

    That really doesn't mean anything. They reject a lot of ideas. As for a lack of "confidential", this is likely a Lego catalogue due out in December/January. "Confidential" stamps are typically on pre-release materials and mockups. They often know things in advance. They may well have copies of the catalogue for December/January in stores already. If the information has leaked and they know they're announcing soon then they have nothing to lose. My local store often confirms unannounced things for me (often small things, like whether the UK is getting the same promotional items as the US etc).

    "The image is already out and a lot of people have saved it" has never stopped companies from having pictures taken down before. We'd all seen the pictures of the new Death Star but it was still taken down. I'm looking forward to seeing the details of the interior.

    Just because they have had American buildings before doesn't mean people don't want European styles. More specifically, most of the American style buildings can blend in pretty easily with European style. Something like a diner stands out a lot more as it is very specifically a part of American culture. Plus, remove the computer from the Town Hall and everything else gives you the idea of early 20th century (most notably the style of the fire engine). The Lego sets in AS are basically an Easter egg. And, from my perspective, the interior bothers me less than the interior. For example, if they made an apartment building and filled it with flat screen TVs I wouldn't mind. If, on the other hand, they made a glass covered apartment building, as is common these days in new developments, I would then take issue with it for being "too modern". I can even forgive the diner for the most part, as they did exist pre-1950s. I would just prefer something less obviously American. My biggest issue with the set, though, is the same as with the Detective's Office. I don't understand the inclusion of huge letter-based signs. This one is easy enough to omit though.

    On the basis of?
  8. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Tbh I went down the same thought process for Brick Bank and Detective's Office. For both I thought "urgh, an Americanised building" and for the BB I was annoyed at the laundry (not because it split the building like most, but because there weren't self-service laundries in the 1920s-1930s). I got over my concerns about those and I am sure I will get over my concerns about this one.

    Pet Shop didn't follow the traditions because it had 2 small buildings. Parisian Restaurant didn't follow the traditions because it had a full interior. Assembly Square didn't follow the traditions because it was 48 studs wide. Things change. The main thing that disappoints me is a move away from the classic faces, but it isn't the end of the world. It's probably a waste of a printing machine to use one for a face not used elsewhere.

    It's not significantly more modern. It would still be no later than the 1950s. Definitely agree about it not being what I would hope for. But we all know we're all going to buy it regardless. What makes you think it's a "sub brand"? Why can't it just be the next modular?
  11. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    This is no more a "corner modular" than the Parisian Restaurant. It is just access to the stairway. As with many other people, this wasn't what I would have expected, but I will be getting it. It doesn't quite feel right with the others in the series to me, but it is still a good looking building. Could that just be the way the Chinese word for the modulars translates in all cases, not just for "that brand"?
  12. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It's not. You can see there are steps down the side.
  13. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I have never understood why anyone thinks a train station would work. It gets brought up by so many people and it simply can't work. Glad to see someone else who realises this.
  14. Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Maybe not, but it's very common in the UK and Europe. Often it was the home of the manager.
