    10264 Corner Garage

    I don't think his arguments should be taken serious. If there aren't flat tires because the modulars are located in the utopian LEGO universe, like he responds improvising, then why would we need a veterinarian? There wouldn't be sick animals. A tiled ground floor would be nice, but would have driven the part count up. I don't mind tiling it myself, it was a part of the fun of the first modulars!

    Bricklinking Modular Buildings

    Last month I've ordered the parts to build a brick yellow and flame yellowish orange townhouse. I'm curious to see how that will turn out! The topic Assembling Bricksburg of Xon67 inspired me to go for different colored Pet Shop townhouses, but I'm unsure if I'll go later for pink, blue and other bright colors. I'm afraid they would might be too showy between the other modular buildings. It would be too expensive to go wrong. I've ordered my parts using a LDD file, found in this topic.

    Do kids today like Classic Space?

    I think the classic space minifigures look fantastic and timeless, but the classic space ships look outdated. With newer parts and techniques there are more attractive designs possible, without abandoning the colors, style and atmosphere that are typical for classic space.
  4. The LEGO Movie 2 sets are scheduled to release on 26 december. I remember seeing sets on the shelves before the official release date. Do you think it could be possible to get them before christmas? The sets would be great presents!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I wonder if there could be a storyline between a garage and a veterinarian. The most obvious one isn't pleasant... or it should be an animal transporter that has car troubles! What animals do you all expect? We've already seen cats and dogs in modular sets and the CMF veterinarian had a rabbit. They could be too repetitive for the designers who like to surprise. On the other hand a horse from a stranded trailer would have difficulties getting to the first floor. I don't expect an unrevealed new mould in a Creator set, but I would be glad to see the new bird mould in the set!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I didn't expect LEGO to increase the part count of the modular building sets. I thought Assemly Square would be a jubily exception. I'm curious to see the result and the size of it. Probably it will cover more extra builds like vehicles this time, but it also means less limits for the designers in the future. Expensive hobby!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I agree City sets and Modular Buildings have different target groups, but therefore I rather think there is little competition between those lines, making it possible to have the same theme at the same time. I'm curious if and how many children get modular buildings to play with. In a local toy store over here the modulars seem to sell pretty well. I always wonder if it's bought for the children or if there are many AFOLs around? I think the Town Hall looks very stylish and I'm very lucky I got one after I missed out on it. The style of that Manhattan police station pleases me too, but maybe we'll get to wait a bit longer for such a modular building. The diversity in the line is nice too. I'm pretty confident they'll do their best to deliver us something we would like to get!

    I would like to see a modular police station, now it feels like I'm missing one. It's great to have a governmental building in the modular line now and then. It has been a while since the Fire Brigade and the Town Hall. Existing police stations don't have to rule out a modular version. There is a retiring and an upcoming fire station in the City line and yet the Winter Village Fire Station has been released! I just think the part count limits the possibility for a police station. The Fire Brigade has sparse interior elements and Town Hall was build of more bricks. It would require a lot of bricks to build a substantial police station, including a lot of interior and... a police car!

    I hope for something like this style. It would be a completely different style than last year and it could be bright colored, which both can be expected for an official modular building. They could throw in a motor bike or a scooter next to one or two cars. I'm curious to see the vehicle builds and their size, as I think the Speed Champions are very detailled, but too bulky to fit in with the modular line. I prefer the City vehicles size, but those are very basic.

    I would not be surprised if it would be a garage, as it was mentioned a time ago too. We can start speculating! My first idea is a little old Italian garage with a small car like a Fiat 500.

    I have the impression they scaled the amount of story down in Assembly Square and Downtown Diner. I'm glad with that, as the cookie smuggling route and the money laundry used a lot of the limited number of bricks while it felt a bit out of place to me, more like an exagerated inside joke.

    The modular theme is broader than that. For instance the corner building in Assembly Square is inspired by an European building. There is plenty of possible inspirations, as the amazing and still growing amount of MOC modular buildings show. I can imagine a lot of styles and themes that haven't been handled yet in the official line, while it's proven they don't hesitate to use some that have been done before. Perhaps LEGO could do sets like Ninjago City for licensed themes, but I would absolutely not like to see the modular line turning into another licensed theme!
  13. If only they had included Benny with a helmet that wasn't broken and a torso that wasn't scratched in set 70841! In set 70834 he has gotten even more damaged, so I think it would have been nice to have him before his impairing adventures, offering us blue spacemen along with the yellow, white and pink ones!

    Guess the next animal mould round 3

    I've wanted such little birds for so long! I hope they'll be readily abailable on Bricks & Pieces!

    It's the only thing that comes close to a hint for the next modular. I consider a hotel very likely possible and this year there is a hotel pageboy minifigure torso available. On the other hand I don't expect to see another Streamline Modern modular, especially not so soon after Downtown Diner. I'd rather expect art nouveau or classicism architecture. I could imagine a corner modular building based on this hotel in Nice, with it's nice, colored dome.
