I’m not sure about this one. I like some parts, but not others. There should be more tools and other details in the garage. The upper floors look more like an office building on the outside. Why is there not a solid window for the bathroom? Having a toilet right next to the kitchen with a door like that is not going to be pleasant.

Mixed feelings about this one. I don’t see a whole lot of advanced building techniques on the outside like we are accustomed to with the Modulars. It looks okay, but it seems to be more like a 3-in-1 Creator set. I don’t like those weird corners with the light gray pieces exposed. I have never seen angles like this in real life. The garage is okay, but it needs more tools! The vet’s office is okay, but so much space is taken up with the waiting room. I don’t like the apartment. I agree with Martin that the outside with the big windows suggests an office building not small offices and apartments.

I wasn’t so impressed at first, but the more I look at the pictures the more I like it. I think the windows are done nicely. The garage is okay too, although I agree that it really needs some more tools. Is that a dead fish the kid is pointing to?

LOL! That is indeed an upside down fish! And the no snakes sign is funny too. It’s a reference to Indiana Jones. Not an amazing Modular like the Parisian, but not bad. The interior is lacking, but I like the exterior and the truck.

Melanie December 3, 2018 at 3:36 PM

I compare every modular to Parisian! That is the set that brought me out of my “dark age”. I don’t know how Lego can top that one.

Same for me! 😀

LEGOJeff December 3, 2018 at 11:28 AM

Not my favorite Modular, but overall I like it. With some additional details on the interior, I think it would look very nice. And dark orange and sand green are always welcome. I like how they did the windows!

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 4:27 PM

I guess you meant sand-blue. Although sand-green is always welcome too. 😉

I generally like the set. I suppose at some point, I’ll start looking at the little details, etc., but only after I get over the sticker shock.
Good grief; this is an alarming increase in Modular pricing!
I don’t plan on getting it on Jan. 1. At the very least, I’ll wait until Double VIP Points and a $200 GWP.

admin December 3, 2018 at 4:29 PM

Yeah, I don’t know what they were thinking when they set the price for this set. According to the piece-count it’s not a bad price, but a lot of the pieces are small decorative elements.

This modular build is definitely needed in my city. Of course, I won’t be getting it right away.( possible birthday present next year). Finally a veterinarian’s office.

Legostuff14 December 3, 2018 at 1:45 PM

Oh, one more thing , this go great with the pet shop modular building.😸

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 4:31 PM

Yep, but remember; no snakes! 😉

Rob December 3, 2018 at 2:53 PM

I definitely like it, although not quite as much as say the Theater, the Firehouse, the Parisian Restaurant or the Diner, I do find it does have nice connections to the Town Hall. On the other hand, given the price point and and not as detailed maybe? Well, I suspect it won’t be available for as long like the Town Hall or the Brick Bank. Oh, there I go bringing up the Town Hall again. 😀

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 4:33 PM

The Town Hall is a simple but solid set just like this one, and it’s also dark-orange, so there is definitely a connection. 🙂

Melanie December 3, 2018 at 3:02 PM

I like it, I need a gas station in my little town. I was hoping for another civic building, like a post office or hospital. But this is fun. The only thing is, I am out of corner lots! I may have to do some street redesigns. I’ve been thinking of adding a table and expanding, if my small Lego room can handle the space requirements. Maybe it’s time to expand? The price surprised me. It’s steep, I’ll probably wait for a double VIP event, but it is one I will eventually buy.

Historically, every third LEGO Modular Building is a corner set, so yeah, we could end up with too many corners, especially if you are displaying them on a narrow shelf. You could probably put a small street in between two of the corner buildings just to break them up, or even a full street baseplate. I can’t defend the price, but Huw from Brickset, who already built the set says that it feels right once you build it.

Nigel December 3, 2018 at 3:04 PM

I quite like this, for me it’ll go well with the diner.

Reply

Eric December 3, 2018 at 3:17 PM

These modulars are getting crazy expensive. And this looks to be the smallest one yet. I barely covers half the base plate.

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 4:44 PM

Yeah, the price feels steep. The building is pretty tall though; in fact, at over 12 inches, it is the tallest recent Modular. The price per piece ratio is less than 7 cents a piece, which is good. But it is also true that many of the pieces are small decorative elements. So, there are plusses and minuses, but I think $170 or even $180 would have felt more reasonable and easier to swallow.

What I might do is switch the heads and hair pieces . Make the guy in the sweater be a grandpa and make a younger vet. I do believe that in one of the mini figure series there was a girl veterinarian. She has what I call the” Jennifer Aniston” hair piece. Lol!

Will December 3, 2018 at 5:37 PM

I’m thinking this set continues the sinister undertones of the Detective’s Office.

Here we finally see the head of the cookie smuggling syndicate. Since he’s blatantly cooking them. He probably is the owner of the garage which also feels rather mafia-like. The vet is nothing more than a cover for where he patches up his goons. As you can tell by the dead fish, they don’t care about pets.

Throw in the steep price and you know something is going down!

You can also see on the TV set, that he enjoys watching the gritty crime series “The Bridge”…

(Perhaps it’s a reference to the Thames Television endboard, though…)

Reply

Håkan December 4, 2018 at 8:14 AM

Although the bridge on the TV set isn’t much alike the original Øresund Bridge. The show is very popular in Denmark/ Scandinavia, though, so it could still be a veiled reference…

Reply

admin December 4, 2018 at 1:53 PM

Speaking of the TV, Huw points out that the designer must be too young to know how these old-style TVs actually operated and looked. I thought that was funny. The hump is missing at the back! 😀

Reply

Håkan December 4, 2018 at 6:06 PM

Ah, oh yeah… Perhaps those TV’s could be considered more iconic than modern ones… Or a flatscreen would cover too much of the wall…

(Or even take up too much building space, I realize now, when I think about it…)

Reply

Håkan December 4, 2018 at 9:04 PM

Now someone mentioned the designers went for a 50’s nostalgic appeal, though, which could make sense.

Reply

admin December 4, 2018 at 10:19 PM

Yeah, it seems like we are in the ’50s now. I’m a little scared what will happen next though, because modern architecture is not very nice… 🙁

Reply

rainey December 3, 2018 at 5:42 PM

I like it! I like that it looks like a renovated building on the upper floors. That will add some realism to the aggregate city. I like the way the building is oriented and how the service station fits into that corner void.

I’m not especially upset at the price. Maybe I should be but I didn’t buy the Diner last year and I’ve got the accumulated points so I’ll pay maybe the sales tax and change. Mostly I’ll be happy to give it to my son because I think it will add nicely to the Modular City.

“I’m not a crook” .lol!😎

Will December 3, 2018 at 6:49 PM

That’s exactly what a criminal would say!

Do I smell Snicker Doodle? If your place were to be raided would we find recipes!?

I’m sure that large tray in your kitchen is only for heating up dinner rolls and not for creating little illegal discs of joy.

The detective is on the case!

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 7:41 PM

LOL! I literally just finished baking a big batch of snicker doodle! I’m innocent though and have nothing to do with this operation. 😈

Reply

Legostuff14 December 3, 2018 at 7:55 PM

Ahha! And the truth has finally come out. It was all you.lol!👮‍♂️

Reply

admin December 3, 2018 at 9:49 PM

Nope… totally innocent. Just munching on some snicker doodles. Nothing to see here. 🙄
