    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Too late for it to happen now...must be sometime next week! Still no leaked images either...

    Would love it to be Justin Ramsden - he's designed some fantastic sets in recent years.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I seem to remember an Art Gallery was mentioned last year quite strongly before the Police Station was revealed - with Jamie Berard said to be the designer.

    An Italian style Art gallery was the rumour last year. Turned out to be false...unless they were a year out.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The Garage is probably my least favourite Modular as well...having said that i'd say it does look better in person than in pictures! The exterior looks great - for me it's the interior which is lacking, and it feels odd having a Vets above a garage. I'm currently in the process of moding mine - I've taken out the Vets/apartment and am moving the gym from the Downtown Diner in there. I've made each floor bigger as well so it now fills the whole base plate (into the corner). But well worth picking up! Re Anniversary I hope so to! It's the 15th one this year so will be interesting to see if that warrants anything special.

    It's likely to be the next modular to go yes - especially if there's a bigger Modular coming for the 15th Anniversary next year. I don't think there's been any offcial indication though. Recently modulars have all retired towards the end of the year, but if anyone is after this set it's probably worth getting it sooner rather than later.

    I could see a small doctors surgery - maybe slightly bigger than the vets in the corner garage. So a waiting room, main doctors office and then perhaps another room for a nurse/X rays. As others have mentioned, a full hospital might be difficult. I think rather than a school a nursery/kindergarten is more likely - to me that's more managable as it could be a single room and think it offers lots of chances for fun mini builds with play equipment etc. A museum is still number 1 on my want list - would be so fun to include nods to both lego and modular history. If they did another anniversary set, it might be a candidate.

    10278 Police Station

    I know there's issues with DPD not doing the correct paper work/it taking longer to fill out (Probably partly Brexit, partly the pandemic) so things are taking longer than they should. It would've been dispatched from Belgium so maybe that customs update was just late to be added on. People in the UK have recieved there Police Stations though so fingers crossed it'll be with you soon!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think it'd be interesting if they did a larger corner corner building for the anniversary next year - so on a 32x32 and 16x32 baseplate like Assembly Square - so one side of the corner would be longer. It would allow a wide variety of different facades and be something different to what we've had before. Would work well for a museum perhaps! It could be smaller at the back/the actual corner cut into a bit more to keep the brick count down. Think it could be quite cool :)

    10278 Police Station

    I think I like it! Love the Police station mainly. For me it's slightly odd if the only way to acsess the apartment is via the ladder at the back and I would have preferred if the green building was the same style as the Police station. So many opportunities to mod this one but a great starting point to begin with!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    It looks tall but also there seems to be some kind of mast/chimney on the top which perhaps makes it taller than it actually is.

    There's a longer version on Facebook - 100% the modular reveal and I assume the designer as well! https://fb.watch/1_bNhZb3Rc/

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Whilst i'm increasingly thinking @theremin is proving good information and this will be the modular we're getting...I'd love if he was actually Jamie Berard in disguise spreading false rumours!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Would be a nice nod if one of the bits of artwork was the same as the artist is painting in the Parisian Restauraunt! If this rumour is true and Jamie has designed it...do you think it's a reflection that the last few modulars perhaps haven't been as well recieved? Personally I like them all and it seems most people do, but some have been more critical seemingly of DD, CG and the Bookshop compared to most Jamie has designed.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I'd certainly like to know what the source of this information is...as as far as I can tell this is the first info on any website where someone is claiming they know what is is.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    As we speculate on what the modular will be - do you think it will be built any 'higher up' to fit in with the new brick built road design? Or will it carry on as is?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Didn't Jamie step away from designing the modulars? I believe he's still part of the team and oversee's everything but he's not designing them anymore as such (which is a shame!).

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    No way it'd be a library with the bookshop last time. If it's a school I could see it being more of a Nursey type thing, a big school seems unlikely to me cause of the size it'd be. I'm going for it'll be a full length building(s) but with different styles (like the Detectives Office). I think one of the buisnesses will be an opticians, record shop or a hardware store.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    From memory it only leaked just before it was officially announced last year - and even then it was a blurred image of the box. So probably at least another month. There's been no firm predictions this year what it'll be.

    Yes - the Diner has been confirmed to retire this year. If you're keen on it I'd try and pick it up soon. Just back in stock on the LEGO website!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The Tree House has just come back in stock here in the UK - So hopefully will be back again elsewhere soon. Diner still out of stock.

    UK Folk - The Diner is now back in stock on the Smyths site if you're after it!

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Normally (I think) if the set is due to be retired it'll swap to Sold Out so it would suggest they'll come back. It's the same in the UK - been Temporarily Out of Stock for months but other shops have had both in stock for short amounts of time which suggests both are still being made. I'd pick them up as soon as you see them though as the Diner is highly likely to retire this year, especially with the new modular out in January. As for modular leaks...I think someone said book shop a few months out last year but not sure if it was a guess or an actual leak... All part of the fun speculating though! I feel something like an Opticians or a hardware store could be part of a future modular, perhaps one similar to Detectives Office/Brick Bank where there's different style buildings/ocupations.

    The image was posted on the actual Lego Facebook page....surely it can't be fake! 'be one of the first to set your eyes on the all-new LEGO Creator Expert set! Happening at Singapore Comic Con, MBS, 7 Dec at 12 noon'

    75192 - UCS Millennium Falcon 2017 MOD/MOC

    I contacted LEGO about the stickers, asking nicely if they could send me an extra set so I could use them to MOD my falcon - AND THEY DID! (For free as well). So it's definitely worth asking, it might be different countries have different policies etc. This was a year ago though so hopefully they'd still be willing to :)
