    10278 Police Station

    Really like it. Best modular in years. Please, enough of this garbage about police......keep your opinion to yourself, especially if you haven’t reviewed the FBI uniform crime statistics. Example..... “I won't deny I was a little uncomfortable learning that this would be the 2021 installment in the Modular Buildings Collection, given the rising awareness of past and present police corruption and misconduct which fueled this past summer's protests. I realize the designers couldn't really have anticipated that being one of the hot-button issues of 2020, but it ends up casting a bit of a shadow over the reveal, which is unfortunate because it truly is a lovely set which makes a great addition to the series.” Seriously? For the vast majority of people, it’s not a ‘hot button issue’. Not even close.

    I’m just happy we got a new modular. Editing post because a nod is as good as a wink to a blind horse.

    The vast majority of Americans appreciate the police and what they do. There shouldn’t be any problem whatsoever with this set in the USA. One or 2 rogue policemen out of tens of thousands isn’t a reason for Lego to not make a police station. We abhor the denial of due process as guaranteed in our constitution. This Lego set in no way should be associated with any political situation in the USA. I’m grateful for the police. Even the one who pulled me over doing 90 in a 65 zone in my Audi S5. Peace and happy holidays to all.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    So, based on what I’ve seen posted in the past 24 hours, looks like it’s safe to say we still don’t know anything about the next modular. I’ll check back in a week or so.......I have a 4,000+ piece modular hospital from another manufacturer to work on.
  5. The instructions need to be for something that, for lack of a better word, appears outstanding to a collector/builder. And, unique. Another 3 story restaurant isn’t going to cut it. A great example for an alternative build is the AS alternate build. While it is still an ‘eatery’ at heart, the design is outstanding and NO additional pieces outside of what you get with Assembly Square are required. I don’t think the extra parts needed to complete the design should cost more than 10% of the base set. I’ve lost a lot of interest in custom builds since the manufacturers in Asia are cranking out large modulars with quality parts, no missing pieces and coherent instructions. Things have changed a lot in the last few years.

    True! Another reason why I prefer DIY interiors. 😀

    Interiors are sooooo easy. Just to start, google ‘build lego furniture’ and you’ll get many, many ideas. Plus, the furniture builds for a modular are so small that it’s relatively easy to figure out the piece inventory needed. As for story lines, well, we all have an imagination to one degree or another...........and, that’s free.

    As a collector of modular buildings, and lego secondarily, I’m just happy their are other choices out there.

    Being concerned about the playability of a modular for a four year old is like someone complaining about Duplo not having enough adult oriented features. Wasn’t the original intent of Lego to offer the modular series as a product for adult builders?

    I’m in complete agreement with you. I collect modular buildings with some MOCs thrown in. The manufacturer is irrelevant to me as long as it’s a good design that adds to my collection. I look at the building, not the mini-figs or the story line. As time goes by, a higher percentage of my city is non-Lego.

    Me too. The quality of the non-Lego sets has improved to a level where they are on an equal basis with Lego. I started building modulars about 8 years ago. When the non-Lego sets first appeared, they had ‘issues’. Now, things are pretty much on an equal basis. Design, quality of brick and instruct books are great. I generally buy from Amazon and avoid those offerings with long transit times. Some of the non-Lego modulars are actually next day delivery through Amazon. If you collect Lego exclusively, fine. If you simply enjoy modulars, well, there are options. No disrespect to Lego or Lego collectors intended. Some of us need/want more than one modular a year. Especially when the Lego release isn’t up to our individual standards.

    The kind of statistic that makes the internet so great.
  13. Change of heart. I would buy it even though I don’t like it. Cost isn’t an issue because I’m old and won’t outlive my money. This is going to be soooooooo repetitive. That’s not unusual for architecture/building sets. Can’t be helped in most cases. But, if it is over 9,000 pieces that would take repetitiveness to an entire new level. I can just see it now. I’ll be at about the 5,000 piece mark, will become totally bored and fall face first dead into the bricks. Death by boredom. Either that, or my dogs will mistake it for their feeding dish. I have more to say, but my Apple Watch is telling me it’s time to stand.
  14. Spot on. So many significant buildings in the world that would be wonderful lego sets. So many. Instead, we get something that will look like an oversized, dirty brown dog food dish.
