LEGO recently released a very interesting and informational video on celebrating the 10th anniversary of the LEGO Modular Buildings. It goes through the history of how the LEGO Modular Building series started, and how it evolved through the years. Watch below. 🙂
The LEGO Modular Buildings have had a long and very successful history, but there are also some twists and turns that you may have not known about. LEGO Creator lead designer Jamie Berard explains how the LEGO Modular Building collection started, how the LEGO Creator team gets inspirations and ideas for the projects, and what made them continue past the originally planned three buildings.
As you can see, there are a lot of really interesting details in this video. And it’s not just the history that Jamie shares. I kept pausing the video to see all the variations of the LEGO Modular Buildings displayed around him. Notice the different facades and color variations of the sets. Aren’t they awesome? I especially like the three versions of the #10190 LEGO Modular Market Street next to each other, the recolored #10218 LEGO Modular Pet Shop, and all the little tablescrap designs that LEGO designers may include in future LEGO Modular Buildings. Oh, and also all those cool scenes from The LEGO Movie with all the Modulars!
Just to recap, there has been twelve LEGO Modular Buildings released so far. The #10182 LEGO Café Corner, the #10185 LEGO Green Grocer, the #10190 LEGO Market Street, the #10197 LEGO Fire Brigade, the #10211 LEGO Grand Emporium, the #10218 LEGO Pet Shop, and the #10224 LEGO Town Hall have been retired already. However, you can still get the #10232 LEGO Palace Cinema, the #10243 LEGO Parisian Restaurant, the #10246 LEGO Detective’s Office, the #10251 LEGO Brick Bank, and the most recently released and very special #10255 LEGO Assembly Square. They are available under the LEGO Creator section of the Online LEGO Shop.
