Today, the LEGO Group has announced the 2021 addition to its LEGO Modular Building Collection, with the unveiling of the #10278 LEGO Creator Police Station. Below is the press-release with the full description of the set, including pictures, price, availability, and more.
Hiding a wealth of features behind its impressive facade, the eye-catching new model consists of three floors and a modular structure that allows LEGO fans to fully explore the intricate interiors and increase the building’s height.
Designed as a centerpiece to a bustling LEGO neighborhood, the LEGO Police Station also comes complete with a donut shop brimming with sweet treats and a newspaper kiosk, as well as five minifigures including a 1940s-inspired police officer for ample storytelling possibilities.
Adding further architectural interest, the outside is decorated with brightly colored awnings and ornate cornicing. The LEGO Police Station is fully compatible with other products from the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection and makes a striking display piece alongside these, as well as on its own.
The feature-packed floors of the LEGO Police Station are filled with secret surprises and delights for true-crime fans. On building the set, it soon becomes apparent that a mystery donut thief is on the loose. Naturally, the LEGO Police Station is fully equipped to tackle even the most sugary-sweet of crimes, with an evidence locker, jail cell, interrogation room, and case-board with red lines connecting all the clues.
Inside, all levels are connected by a grand staircase and are stocked with uniquely designed pieces including a billboard, telephone, and a typewriter. The ultimate Easter eggs and clues to solving the mystery of the donut thief come in the form of a hidden escape route beneath the jail cell and a secret access route to the donut shop.
The #10278 LEGO Creator Corner Garage is released under the new 18+ line that was introduced this year, although younger builders would be perfectly fine building it as well. The model measures 37cm/14.5in high, 25cm/10in wide, and 25cm/10in deep with 2,923 pieces and five minifigures.
Chris McVeigh designer at the LEGO Group commented: “We’ve had a lot of fun designing the LEGO Police Station. An architectural gem and treasure trove of quirky features, it’s the perfect place to start building your LEGO streetscape, or a brilliant addition to an existing one.”
The #10278 LEGO Creator Police Station is the latest addition to the LEGO Modular Buildings Collection, which also includes the #10270 LEGO Creator Bookshop, the #10255 LEGO Creator Assembly Square, and #10264 LEGO Creator Corner Garage.
The #10278 LEGO Creator Police Station will be available to purchase at LEGO retail stores and the Online LEGO Shop from January 1st, 2021.
