Here is a LEGO City project that you might like to support. CUUSOO member Pekko posted a series of LEGO City mini-shops with real brands business names to brighten up your LEGO City. Besides being cute, the sets add a little bit of retro by using the old-school LEGO City shops format on 8×16 baseplates. And they can also connect to each other. Each of the shops comes with 2 minifigures 1 staff and 1 customer.
Currently there are 7 proposed sets in the LEGO City Mini Shop Series, and I’m sure more can be added in the future. I think they real challenge with these sets is going to be getting licenses from all of the different franchises, but I suppose it is doable as it would be good promotion for them as well. Here is the list of proposed LEGO City Mini Shop sets (you can also check out the interiors here - please note it is a big page and takes a while to load):
LEGO City Mini Shop Starbucks Coffee - come with Starbucks cups screen parts, coffee-machine, and two minifigures. I can tell you that my minifigs have been waiting for this for a long time!
LEGO City Mini Shop Apple Store – comes with mini versions of iPhones and iPads for your little people, and two minifigures. Here is where minifigs can geek out and buy all the latest gadgets!
LEGO City Mini Shop 7-ELEVEN – comes with beverage-cooler, soda-cans, and two minifigures. I particularly like the colors on this set!
LEGO City Mini Shop McDonald’s - comes with McDonald’s cups, overhead-menu, and two minifigures. Standard LEGO colors work really well for this – a match made in heaven!
LEGO City Mini Shop Dunkin Donuts – comes with donuts, overhead-menu, donut-trays, donut-box, and two minifigures. This is why all minifigures look overweight.
LEGO City Mini Shop LEGO Shop – comes with new sticker on LEGO box, Pick-A-Brick area, and two minifigures. Now your minifigures can buy some LEGO just for themselves!
The proposed price for the LEGO City Mini Shop Series is $19.99 for each set, but with licensing fees this could get higher. Still, I think these sets have great potential with lots of playability and cuteness. The project currently has a bit over 2,000 votes. Please remember that CUUSOO projects need to reach 10,000 votes before LEGO would consider them for production. If you like this LEGO project, please VOTE HERE
