    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I’m 100 % with you ! Hospital, school : those sound universal as a theme and allow for nice diversity on each floor. I’m still dreaming ! And as someone wrote before, some kind of pitched roof for a change would be much appreciated. I’d like also to see new colors: light yellow, dark red, white and why not, some purple accents. Even though I love every single modular building I bought, I admit I’m longing for some classical building à la PR. With new building techniques as we’ve seen from newer sets like DD, that would be awesome ...

    I don’t know what is the average age of this forum but reading all the hype about the countdown, sorry but we are not yet 16+ to be “legit” to build the next modular !

    What was it ? Which colour ? How many floors ?

    A music school perhaps ? (Hoping...) yes a police station has its place for the community, but what about the limited features (office, interrogatory room, cell detention and above, a donut shop) ? Too similar IMO to DO school ! Hospital !

    November 18 was the date that the first leaked image of DD has been revealed last year. About 10 days after, it was official that it would become the 2018 modular. A little later year after year...

    I’m just about to finish building DD ; when I buy a modular, I like to delay a little bit to construct it, when the fall arrives and just before the next one is announced... it helps for the wait... I must admit I’m really impressed with the techniques used. I was a little bit skeptical about the theme when it was revealed about a year ago (another eating place ? Really ?) The counter, the façade, the stairs, etc. From my point of view, it must have been the most complex to build yet. I think I was like many others who couldn’t resist to buy it anyway and I’m glad I did. Now: somebody somewhere, a little leak of information please ! P.S the BB also has a computer in the banker’s office

    I think TH is one the most important buildings and essential component in my city. Also, it’s the only one to have an elevator. I wish some further modular will have that same amenity, hopefully built differently for an extra challenge !

    when I think about a new modular, I wonder also about the interior: what kind of furniture or accessories will make its decor. Although a library or record store would be “useful” to my city, it seems to me that it would be a little bit repetitive (bookshelves, display tables for records, a cashier or computer etc, things already seen on other modulars and not very specific) ; sure, some apartments could be seen on the second and third and even fourth floor , but I think we need some new innovative articles; indeed, a museum could be interesting in that way ( if not a school or hospital...)

    A school with classrooms, gymnasium, chemistry lab, principal office, little supply store, music classroom, art classroom, geography with maps all around... or hospital with an emergency room, X-ray room, laundry, cafeteria, pharmacy, etc Soooo many possibilities !

    Just by curiosity, does someone know which is the bestselling modular overall to date ? I wish for the next one to be a hospital or a school : so many different rooms possible for each one, and enough elements to be a one theme building... Since I am the happy owner of them all, an hotel isn’t a first choice for me
  13. Personally, I will prefer a third series from the Simpsons over another hypothetical Disney theme for example; I need some civilians for my Modular city, and the Simpsons can deliver that (bus driver, teacher, groundskeeper, bartender...); this could also be accomplished with the future serie 19 for which I’m eager to see ! Milkman, postman, teacher, hairdresser, musician in a march band, referee, fireman, majorette, pharmacist, folks in national costume for my ethnic quarters, name it !

    I agree with you: it adds some variety to the architecture styles of the city; also it’s an appreciated appartment building for all those otherwise homeless little minifigs ... also, on top of the gated market, there’s plenty of space to build a tennis court

    To help the wait, I went to last year forum pages and the year before at approximatively the same date as we are today (and before - October, etc); at least, we had first the OFFICIAL NAME of the set either from TLG or a very reliable source; this year, only a picture - a good one for that matter - and a name we supposed by seeing that image. Very secret this year TLG and for good reasons...
