    10264 Corner Garage

    I got two of the copies of the Corner Garage. If I build both, can I take the middle two floors from one and add them to the other, making a building with 5 floors (ground floor)? And then with the remaining ground floor, can I put the left-over roof piece directly on top of it?

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I think this may be the first modular where you need some modifications of a second set to increase the height of the buildings. Specifically for the teal building, the additional middle floors will need the front and rear doors removed (eg changed to windows possibly). Also, this is also the first modular where the name is just one word. So it's 'Bookshop' instead of 'Book Shop'. This does sidestep the abbreviation problem of it being known as BS. First mod would be to add more books to the bookshop. I mean floor-to-ceiling shelves of books on all walls, under the counter, behind the counter, and even under the stairs if not already.

    Won't that look like the diner?

    There is a computer in the town hall.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    I agree, especially if an old type bookstore would NOT have a built-in cafe. I'm thinking of an used book shop where it's more like a messy museum/attic than a place to get the latest best seller. Maybe like the bookstore from The Neverending Story movie or from the Good Omens mini-series. And we'll definitely need a secret room to the most private of private collections, which includes books in chains.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    The first floor of the diner with its wide windows has a car dealership feel to it. Maybe expand it with a mirror build of the first floor.
  7. Has anyone come up with a physical way to allow for stickers to be applied in the same position for multiple pieces? For example, if I'm applying stickers to multiple 2x2 plates, I would want the stick on each to look like they are in the same position. I don't think just eye-balling it will work. Back to the multiple tiles example, I built a lego frame that rests over the bottom edge of a row of plates and tried to use that as a guide for the sticker, like a ruler, so that at least one side of the sticker is in the same position across all plates. But the problem is that there is always a gap between the tile and the frame so the sticker can sometimes slide into the gap during application. I guess I could replace the lego frame with a strip of tape to eliminate the gap, but now I have to worry about aligning a very long strip of tape. They should print sticker sheets with a border around each sticker where the border matches the exact size of the target piece, if possible. There is a cut around the border itself, so the border is essentially a sticker frame around the center sticker. Then to apply the sticker, we just lift up one side of the border sticker and center sticker, align the border to one edge of the piece, which automatically aligns the center sticker, and then only press down upon the center sticker onto the piece. The border stick then can be discarded. Yes, the five sticker sheets from the xtras set is giving me anxiety.
  8. Some modular buildings (and related sets) are designed for vehicles to drive into, through, or around. Has anyone tried swapping out the normal baseplate with a road one so the road on the set is on the same level as the the roads around the building? Fire Brigade: use straight street plate? Corner Garage: use curve street plate? Ghostbusters HQ: use straight street plate?

    [PRESS RELEASE] 10267 - Gingerbread House

    Challenge would be to add a back to the house, probably with a mirror copy of the set.

    Modular Building Sets - Rumours and Discussion

    Have you considered using Lego Ideas sets for the interiors? I've seen someone fit the contents of the Big Bang Theory set into one of the upper floors of the Cafe Corner. And I'm thinking the upcoming Friends set (the tv show, not the theme) may work for the first floor. Maybe the Research Institute can fit into the remaining floor. Here is one example. If I try this, I'll see if I can line the floor with wood panels.

    LEGO 2019 Stranger Things Rumours Discussion

    Has anyone removed the ball-socket parts and joined the two halves back to back to form a complete house? Trying to imagine what it would look like within a town/city layout.
  12. Just got the Benny and Sweet Mayhem brickheadz delivered from Target. They have the same Limited Edition stickers as the more expensive Walmart sets.

    BrickHeadz 2019 - Rumours, Speculation and Discussion

    Just got Benny and Sweet Mayhem delivered from Target. They both come with the same Limited Edition sticker as the Walmart sets, but of course $5 cheaper. Walmart sucks.
  14. Didn't watch the movie yet but was the Wizard of Oz even in the movie. If not, then they use any unrelated license to fill up a CMF series 2.

    Interestingly enough, Target is selling them at the regular $9.99 price.
