As we discussed last week, the next set in the LEGO Creator Modular Buildings series is going to be the #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage, available on January 1st via official LEGO stores and the Online LEGO Shop (see original announcement here: 2019 LEGO Modular Corner Garage Coming!). Some LEGO fans are very enthusiastic about the set, while others are not entirely happy with it…
When you are not sure about a LEGO set, one thing that can really help is watching high-quality video reviews, and, if available, video introductions from the set designers themselves. As the LEGO Creator Modular Buildings are very popular, we are fortunate to get both designer videos as well as plenty of fan reviews.
The #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage is the work of LEGO designer Lars Joe. In the video below, he will show you the set in detail, talk a bit about the design process, and also point out some fun features and interesting building techniques.
As explained by the designer, the #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage has a deliberately different style than the previous LEGO Modular Buildings, but it still fits well within the collection. It especially looks good next to the #10260 LEGO Creator Downtown Diner from last year, as they both mimic the architectural style of the 1950s.
Here is the official description with more details: Discover surprises on all levels at the Corner Garage! Drop by the #10264 LEGO Creator Expert Corner Garage, where you’ll discover a world of fun and surprises! This amazing model comes with removable building sections for easy access to the highly detailed interior and comprises three stories. On the ground level there is a 1950s-style gas station with fuel pump, kiosk and a vehicle workshop complete with a roll-up door, vehicle lift and tire mounter. At the mid-level animal clinic, you’ll find an examination table, fish tank, and a waiting area with sofa, while on the upper level you’ll discover a well-equipped apartment with kitchen, TV, sofa, bed and a staircase that leads to a rooftop terrace with sun lounger, parasol and flower garden. The exterior of the building features a classic 1950s facade with signage, detailed windows and a decorative roofline, plus a sidewalk area with a tree and an ornate streetlamp. This charming addition to the LEGO Modular Building series has been designed to provide a challenging and rewarding building experience full of nostalgia. Includes a scooter, a tow truck, and 6 minifigures: gas station owner, mechanic, vet, woman, man, and a girl, plus bunny, parrot, dog, frog, and fish. Measures over 12” (32cm) high, 10” (26cm) wide and 9” (25cm) deep. 2,564 pieces.

Just a heads up, the brick bank and the detective office is out of stock. I have a feeling that I’m getting the Assembly Square and the diner for Christmas. This of course is just an assumption. I could be wrong because the betrayal at Cloud City was also on my list. I was told by my family one or the other . In 12 days I’ll find out. Oh, the Agony of waiting. Lol!😶
Just a FYI for anyone who reads this. Both the Brick Bank and the Detective’s Office has been retired. So, those who want it will either have to go to a store to see if it’s still in stock or buy it online.
I’m starting to like this set. It’s simple like the Town Hall (it’s even the same color!), so it goes well with some of the more fancy buildings like the Diner. I still think the price is too high though.
Exactly, Martin. I’ve should have mention this in my comment above. I just noticed the selection above for Lego shop.com and wanted to let people know what’s available or not available. I do however, have the detective office and love the design of it.
I like the outside and the garage/gas station. I think the top part looks more like an office building. Putting a vet right over the garage doesn’t make sense. Then, there is no door between the vet’s office and the apartment. I’m thinking that if we get this set, I will just redo the upper floors.
I have the same thought about the upper floor too Tony . It’s either part of the apartment or the waiting room for the vet’s office. However I have seen floors connect like that . In other words you would walk through or past an office to get to an apartment it’s not very common but, have seen them in apartment buildings in parts of Europe and parts of Canada. It’s very unique.
That’s interesting. Is that because they chop up the building later to make apartments and the layout ends up being weird?
