    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I've been hoping for a garage in a modern style to go next to the dinner. I think I'd prefer just two floors (on the left) with a larger 48x32 footprint that could still form a corner modular.

    I really appreciate the dedication to your dad. Amazing creations on your flickr account! Very inspiring.

    It would make perfect sense to me - Garage / petrol station would be great on a 32 x 48 layout.

    Yes yes yes! I'm sure, this would look great next to the diner. I was playing with this idea for a MOC, but I have yet to start.

    Marvellous! I had to laugh when I saw that guy applying green paint in the vase modelling class. He seems very enthusiastic Very very nice.

    In our lakeside town, there isn't a lot of crime. A lot of pets go missing and suitcases get mixed up, but Ace Brickman is really good at solving these cases. The cop isn't much use - she's almost always at the hairdresser's. She does give out a lot of fines to the fancy sports cars that go over the speed limit. So, thankfully, no need for a police station in this peaceful town. A museum or a garage / car mechanic, though, would be really welcome.

    Well said. I like DD. I very much enjoyed building it with some interesting new techniques and I think it looks great next to AS or DO. After 10 years, I'm glad they're moving on to a more modern style of architecture and I hope they will continue on this path. It was mentioned somewhere that you have to see it as a traditional building that was renovated to house a very modern diner (I think it was in a recent interview with Jamie https://zusammengebaut.com/interview-mit-jamie-berard-achterbahn-diner-taj-mahal-und-co-51257/ I can't listen to it right now). This mish mash doesn’t seem to appeal to a lot of people, but you do see it a lot in real life. The beauty of the arches would probably have stood out better if it had been a corner building. Maybe it would have been better to just have a drastically modern building.

    I agree ! When the DD was released, I immediately thought it would be great next to a automobile repair shop / petrol station. It could look really great. With two nice cars added in. I thought the car from the DD was great actually. 1. automoble repair shop / petrol station 2. museum 3. post office would be my favourites

    Indeed, even a gaming arcade (as suggested by some) may be too borderline in that respect. Brickset features the 1982 6362 Post Office as random set of the day. As mentioned by many, a post office would be quite fun as a modular building. However, I hope the upcoming modulars will continue moving to more modern styles of architecture and I don't immediately associate that with post offices. Maybe a modern art museum

    @Overcold‘s post is one the most interesting things I've read here. I completely agree with what you're saying. I don't have Town Hall, but you sure make it sound attractive.

    My first post here, even though I've been following this particular discussion since page 172. I admit when I first saw the leaked image, I thought it was a cleverly done MOC, but I was puzzled: why the faces if you want to make pretend it's the next modular?! Anyway, I like it and the official images look really good. There was a really good diner almost 2 years on lego ideas by pix027 (also with a nice(r) pink cadillac !) and I thought it was a pity that project was not approved. Maybe this is the reason why. We're definitely seem to be moving up in time now. I would love to see this diner next to a 50s style garage/ pump station...
