    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Hmm, sadly we don’t get that kind of discount in the UK, and importing now we’re not in the EU, is an absolute pain.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It looks the part, for sure, and will sit much better than the Bugle, in most modular towns. I’ve yet to look how tall it is compared to other Modulars, but think it’ll need to be next to Assembly square or something similar in order to not look out of place. With the Hotel being a corner modular, this makes a lot of corners in my town, should i pick it up. I think it’ll have to be discounted before i do, however.

    [MOC] Stranger Things Season 4 - Episode 4

    Love to see this, but the images have failed to load. Have you removed them from the original locations?

    [MOC] Toy Store

    This is a fab build. Really love the Toy Shop interior. Reminds my of one I remember as a kid. The recessed top 2 floors adds a new twist to the Modular line and means it would sit really well between the Police Station and Hotel with those terraces, and perhaps Parisian restaurant or downtown diner too. Nice to see some attention to the back too, with the alarm, and greenery. Maybe one day I’ll save up to buy the parts.

    I get what you’re saying, but the gap in the roof is poor, and the radiator grill at the rear makes me think it was a late add on, and perhaps the parts would have been better used in the shop itself, and maybe adding a bicycle instead.

    Is it just me, or is the small car build in 60347, Grocery Store, a poor attempt. The roof looks half finished, and the fact that its 4 wide, on the go kart style wheels, just doesn’t sit well with the rest of the City range. It’s almost as if its not supposed to form part of the same range. It’s roughly the same size as the fork lift, which only adds to its smallness.

    "The Golden Frog" Restaurant - Modular Building MOC

    This is a fab looking build. Some lovely details including that spiral staircase. I might have to borrow some of those ideas if that’s ok? I’m trying to work out the roof. Sideways SNOT?

    Tumblehome tips

    Some great solutions appearing here. I’m watching with interest, as I try to make my own two car EMU to complement my little town of Modulars, thereby allowing me to keep my trains, rather than sell on.

    Modulars - Alternative Builds

    A good start to MOD/MOC of the modular format. I must admit that IF i could ever afford a second copy of a modular, this is what I’d like to do. I think you’ve managed to capture a small European town really well. The Downtown Diner will be a fair bit tougher i think.

    10303 Loop Coaster

    Maybe less of a base and little ‘throwaway’ builds like cameras and trees might reduce piece count. And if they use technic beams instead of the brick built pillars, then it might come in at the same sort of physical size, with the reduced part count. Those pillars swallowed a large number of the 4000 odd parts in 10261.

    [MOC] Irish Rail 29000 class commuter

    That is some way to make an entrance. Stunning build with such a clever use of parts to create a very good likeness, given the R40 limits as well. I look forward to your future builds. Might just use this as inspiration to keep a train in my town. I was going to sell my sets on.

    That, if true, and they were successful, is a sad indictment of the state of adults minds when it comes to toys that are designed to allow imaginations to work. I doubt that would get much play in the UK or Europe. It would be laughed out of any court. Part of the fun I had as a child was figuring out how to make the back of the box alternate builds, or making a set that I didn’t have, from the bricks that I did. Isn’t that part of the fun when you’re growing up with Lego, or was I the only one?

    The alternative builds would be a welcome return for sure.

    I wonder how much of the final cost of a small set is in the paper and printing, plus the shipping of that extra weight (not much admittedly)? If we did ditch the physical instructions, perhaps we could have smaller boxes, so shipping costs could decrease, and maybe turn a £9 set into a £8 set. This is something of a pet peeve of mine. There’s nothing worse than opening up a new set, and finding the box half empty, or sometimes worse, and wondering what it cost to ship that half box of fresh air.

    Yep. That’s crying out to be bought twice by anyone who can afford it, and fit it and the track down. Yeah, me too. I havent the space for the high speed trains we’ve been getting. I purchased the white one 60051, with the hope of converting it, but gave up when I moved houses. I don’t have the space for a train now. :-(
