Having said all that… I really like this set and think it’s a worthy addition to any LEGO city/camping scene. See my images. However, since it would be very difficult to find this set for the retail price, and I would be reluctant to recommend you pay the secondary market premium, I would recommend an alternative.
I have to totally disagree with the reviewer that said this set is way overpriced. Yes, this set is expensive but I think it is totally in line with what Lego prices are today. This is the biggest set I have gotten, its larger size justifies the $50 price increase from the other two Lego Modular Buildings I own, the LEGO Creator Fire Brigade 10197 and LEGO Creator Grand Emporium 10211, which both MSRP at $150. The Town Hall has 2766 pieces and 8 minifigures, the Grand Emporium has 2182 pieces and 7 minifigures and the Fire Brigade has 2231 pieces and 4 minifigues, the Town Hall as almost 25% more pieces than the Brigade and but the price went up less than 25%.
TECHNIC Figures were a form of minifigure that were used in some TECHNIC sets ranging from the mid 1980’s to 2001. They mainly appear in the Arctic Action and Competition themes. TECHNIC figures were much larger than conventional minifigures, and had more joints. These were similar to Belville Figures.
I was in my Dark Ages when the Cafe Corner and Green Grocer were in production. I am bummed that I missed them, but unless I happen to win the lottery, I know that I’ll probably never get my hands on them. I did, however, get both the Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium, and just having the two still creates quite an amazing display. Building them both, though, I did notice a large amounts of improvement between the Fire Brigade and the Grand Emporium– it was obvious during building which one came first. From what I’ve heard of their predecessors, there isn’t much focus on the interior, which I find to be part of the charm of these pieces. It certainly is one of my favorite lines and based off of their popularity, I can only imagine that they won’t stop with the Pet Shop.
I also missed the Cafe Corner… though looking back it’s because I didn’t have the money. I’d say these are more for the AFOL who commit to City designs. So the only advantage to building minifig scale streets is if you want to make a huge Lego town. Lets face it… the direction it’s heading is far more expensive then we imagine. I like many different themes and would rather get a lot of different stuff than build a town. I feel bad about missing out on a cool series of sets, but every year I see plenty of other cool sets to keep my wallet empty. Unless you really like modern city don’t bother… the Ebay re-seller world makes collecting Lego horrible.
The main reason why sets like Cafe Corner go through the roof when discontinued is because no one buys them (mostly because of cost), they then get discontinued, then all of the sudden those who were waiting for a sale to get them cheap now need to go buy one, causing a price to raise…
The hardest part about the collection is obtaining the buildings that are discontinued. Most sets are discontinued 2-3 years after they are released. I was in a similar situation trying to obtain the Green Grocer and Market Street (already owned Cafe Corner). For both of these sets I used Brick Link to purchase each individual part and assemble the buildings. It’s a lot of work, but the Green Grocer set is now my favorite mainly due to the amount of effort I put into creating it.
Fischertechnik offers a similar pneumatics system for robotic and control technology hobbyists. The Fischertechnik system includes an electrically activated air solenoid, a feature not available in the Lego range.
There are large exclusive LEGO sets in various categories, and you can find them under the LEGO Exclusives and LEGO Hard to Find categories at the Online LEGO Shop. If the set you are eyeing is close to getting retired (usually indicated by the fact that they have been around for a couple of years), now is probably your last chance to pick them up, as many other LEGO fans are also taking advantage of the Double VIP Points period.
In recent years, System sets have begun to adopt previously TECHNIC-exclusive parts, particularly in Exclusives and Star Wars sets. Many modern sets, including TECHNIC sets themselves, blur the distinction between the two systems to a considerable degree.

I know the Admin and I are going to be trying out the I-Brix lighting system. It’s not out yet but scheduled for December to its Kickstarter backers. Not sure how much longer after that before it becomes available retail.
This is more of a surprise, as we see the Tower Bridge has received a box redesign after five years of availability, and the comparatively much younger Sydney Opera House has not received the updated Creator Expert logo. This indicates two potentially big surprises: The Tower Bridge may have some life left, and the Sydney Opera House could possibly be up for retirement in the near future.
Drive out into remote areas with the mobile LEGO City Arctic Outpost and investigate the secrets of the ice in its high-tech laboratory! The truck’s powerful engine and massive tires means it can cope with the toughest conditions. Pull out the box of tools from the trunk and unclip the circular saw and wrench from the sides of the truck. Open up the detachable mobile lab to reveal an impressive array of equipment, including computer screens and microscope, to support the explorers in the search for the hidden in the ice. Cut through the ice block with the chainsaw and attach the all-terrain vehicle’s chain to drag it back to the Outpost. Then activate the crane to lift the ice into the lab for analysis. Includes 3 Arctic explorer minifigures with accessories.
My son has spatial dyslexia and enjoys building with legos. He really likes to get the sets, but I find that I do most of the building and he does most of the fretting because he can’t see what he needs to do.
Excellent condition. Bought for my son but he didn’t like it. SAFETY 3-point safety harness. COMFORT Padded seat and soft adjustable headrest for newborn comfort and support. SIMPLE & QUICK Backrest folds for easy transportation. VERSATILITY Can easily be adjusted to a rocking or stationary position. EXTRAS Adjustable toy bar comes with removable toys. WEATHER PROTECTION Large fold back canopy to provide shade during the warmer months.
The prices may be steep, but if LEGO City is your thing, these building may very well be a perfect substitute as opposed to the entire City genre. And if you’ve got some real $$$, it’ll probably be wise to buy multiple of the same modulars – one for yourself, and the other to sell later at 2x $ so to “pay for” your first building through those profits.
To encourage imagination, fun, and learning, Lego produces dozens of unique Lego sets. There is something for every child: Star Wars fans will find dozens of projects inspired by the starships and characters of the movies.

From the Joker to Bane, each have their own vehicle that tests the streets and are used in their fights against our favorite caped crusader. And now, collectors and players can have replicas to play out their very own storylines! Each pack contains four villainous character cars and one Batman character car.
Jeff Chabot has a background in web development and design, as well as working in broadcast television as a studio engineer, lighting director and editor. He frequently writes about technology, broadcasting, digital entertainment, and the internet.
Chain links were also introduced as an additional way of connecting gears. Tension (resulting from the correct number of chain-link parts used), along with the combination of gearwheel-sizes used, is critical to reliable operation. 8-tooth gears are not recommended for this purpose.
The minifigures are worth the price of this set alone. The Penguin is of course cool, and he comes with an umbrella and a little detonator for the dynamite, but I think the unique scuba Batman is the best part of the set. He comes in a navy blue batsuit with a harpoon gun and a scuba tank. His face is also two-sided; one side has his normal Batman face while the other shows him with a diving mask and respirator, and it looks really neat under the cowl.
Time will tell, but I’m particularly skeptical that we’ll see 10193 Medieval Market Village last through the end of 2012, as it’s already marked as “discontinued from the manufacturer” on Amazon. If Toys R Us — which recently sold out during their sale –doesn’t replenish it’s stock, that will be further indication that the end is near.

TECHNIC Figures are figures that appeared in TECHNIC sets, especially from the line. They were first introduced in 1986 in the Arctic Action line, and were produced until 2001. They are much larger and have several more joints than the standard minifigure, including bendable elbow and knee-joints. Each figure comes already assembled and is not meant to come apart, but parts can be popped off by pulling too hard. They can connect to both standard LEGO System bricks and on TECHNIC parts, and TECHNIC pegs can fit in their hands. 27 different kinds of Technic figures were created,[6] some sets included the same figures but with different accessories and stickers.

The very earliest motors (p/n x469b) were 4.5 volt, and consisted of a modified “Electric Train Motor” (p/n x469) and along with the 4 driven bushes for wheels added an axle hole enabling axles of different lengths to be used. While these were released in kits with Technic parts they were not sold as Technic motors.

I love this set. It is complex, intricate and something that kept me amazed for hours while building. With most LEGO sets I take away new, interesting building techniques. With this set I continually thought to myself – “how in the world did someone think of this??” It was a,axing with a ton of nice gear work. I wish there were a lot more set with this much detail and complexity for the adult builder.

The tenth modular building emerged in January 2015 in the form of 10246 Detective’s Office. Comprised of a pool hall, detective’s office, and barber shop, this set features an entire backstory based around ‘cookie smuggling’.
The Arkham Asylum Breakout set features so much detailed content, with a total of 1,619 pieces. It comes with a total of 8 minifigures: Batman, Robin, The Joker, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, Dr. Harleen Quinzel, Scarecrow and a guard, all with their own weapons, to play around in a creatively realized version of Arkham. It has the front of the Asylum itself, featuring some gothic-style decor, moss, vines, and ice elements for added effect, and a separate security gate.
The first dedicated Technic motor was a 4.5 volt rounded brick (p/n 6216m) released in 1977 as part of the Expert Builder Power Pack (960-1) and Supplementary Set (870-1), this output via a small protruding axle that would rotate when the motor was powered. The motor was not geared, resulting in high-RPM, low-torque output. Gearboxes and a square casing were available. A 12 volt motor of the same physical dimensions as the 4.5 volt motor was also available in set 880-1. The 12 volt version is visually distinguishable by being black, rather than grey.

Here’s one for the hardcore Marvel fans out there: A loving LEGO translation of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s trademarked Helicarrier, which clocks in at 2,996 pieces and comes with 5 Minifigures, 3 microscale Quinjets, 3 fighter jets, a gasoline truck, 2 forklift trucks 2 runways, 4 road blockades, and 12 tiny Microfigures. None of them, sadly, are Phil Coulson.
Fair enough, and before the internet I think that would be a valid point. I personally cannot see how paying more makes collecting more fun? Its not like you work harder (other than for your money) to buy it. Instead of buying from one web site you just buy from another.
We have included all of the sets below for you to see with both exterior and interior photos. If you are looking to begin or add to a Lego modular series, keep in mind that some of these are already retired and others will continue to retire as time goes on. Once retired, sets are very difficult (and expensive) to acquire.
Very true! I’ve got my Haunted House and graveyard set up on the end of the block. Love me some Monster Fighters. The Bike Shop & Cafe set looks really nice too. I haven’t picked it up yet. Have you? Did you like the build?

As I mentioned above, there is some software available to make the BrickLink shopping experience more automatic, but I personally like shopping without the aid of a program that will do everything for me. Sure I might not be getting the very best price, but I can support some of my BrickLink favorite sellers. At any rate, I like to start any project by pulling up some of the rarest, most expensive parts I need to purchase. I do this by selecting those pieces individually and the cheapest prices on BrickLink for them.

We started getting ready for our day and I told him now he could open the last gift under the tree. He opened it up and it was a Lego sorting box.

For Lego collectors seeking the best and most expensive Lego sets, this set is one to get your hands on. One customer wrote, “This is my favorite so far. It was great seeing this fully [built] and sitting majestically on the cabinet. My friend suggested it may need some lights. Next time I put it together I may try adding a few light bricks inside so there will be a bit of a glow from it.” He may be referencing the fact that the Taj Mahal takes on different hues according to the time of the day; a pinkish color in the morning, a milk white in the evening, and a golden color at night.
What a fun and creative building set! This was purchased as a gift for a four year old boy’s birthday and he absolutely loved it. He has lots of legos already, but this set was a great addition to his collection. This set definitely inspires the mind as it can be built at least three different ways. It has lots of fun little extras like the ladder that lifts up and the trap door that can be sealed. It just has lots of fun little elements. It comes with complete instructions for building it all 3 ways and provides hours of brain-stimulating fun for children in a wide range of ages. I would recommend this building set for anyone who likes legos whether they have lots of sets already or are just starting out. A young child will need help building the sets so it makes a great one on one activity to do with you child. I am pleased with the quality, the price, and the overall value of this lego set.
@ Genadi, as a Lego fan my entire life and now an AFOL (adult fan of Lego) I personally ask that you don’t support organizations from foreign countries that sell cheaper replicas of Lego sets like the ones in your aliexpress link. Lego is suing these companies like Lepin, which in my opinion is a horrible unethical company, for IP infringement. Since Chinese laws are different Lego will have a hard and expensive legal battle ahead of them. Yes they are cheaper and similar, but they are not Lego so the quality is not there and they are part of the reason for Lego’s higher price. Lego files many patents to protect itself and still you get organizations like these. Sorry to be a bummer on the good deal, but to me the big picture doesn’t justify the discount. Buy used Lego’s and recondition them. They will be like new. There are a few ways to do this on the Internet. Otherwise get them on clearance or at discount stores as noted. I hope this helps.

This ship is armed with four cannons that are mounted on turntables that slide from port to starboard. Included on either side of the poop deck are two smaller non-functional cannons. Above all, make sure the listing states that the lot is 99% or 100% genuine Lego Brand.  If they didn't state that in their description, then take the time to e-mail them to ask.  It is definitely worth it!

I like the set because it’s modular and can be quickly rebuilt to make your own scenes. I also like the flat 1×1 plates – but there sure are a lot of them. As far as set weights go, this is pretty light. Lots of tiny pieces could pose an issue for younger builders. I built my first set in an hour, and my second in 45 minutes, but I could see build times easily doubling mine depending on age. Kids obviously love it, and for parents it can be frustrating to see your kids want something that doesn’t maximize pieces/dollar/gram ratios, but there’s a good econ lesson in there. Especially if you can work something in about scalpers and aftermarket pricing. A note on that – don’t pay their ludicrous prices. Keep an eye out and you can snag this set fairly easily. SlickDeals always has a thread posted when this set is in stock.
A collector and investor’s review of the Lego Downtown Diner modular 10260. Brook will discus the design (0:17), value (5:36), and discover the size of the average sized brick (10:15). He will also compare it (11:30) with the Parisian Restaurant, Brick Bank, and Fire Brigade to see how it might fit in a c
It’s not the most expensive set on the list, but the clue to why you would want one is right there in the title. Actually the second version of the hulking quadruped snow-tank, this walking All-Terrain Armoured Transport battery-powered set is quite rare, but the open-top cockpit and grappling line for Luke’s classic lightsaber take-down make it worth the asking price.
Whether you’re a huge Star Wars fan or not, the name “Millennium Falcon” has definitely crossed your eardrum. Originally a cargo vessel designed to lug around cargo until it was heavily, and illegally, modified to become the ship everyone now knows to be modest, but very powerful. For the Lego collectors looking for the best Lego Star Wars sets, this one is a steal. Many reviews of the product state that the finished product, “… looks exactly like the Millennium Falcon. Every little detail visible in the movie is present on the model.”
Surprising, almost two years since I originally write this post, Amazon.com still have sellers listing complete Harry Potter Lego sets. Some are still quite expensive, but others look more reasonable once you’ve done your research and seen the much more expensive and complicated options out there. There are little stocking stuffers like the bagged Harry Potter in the Lab figure that are reasonably affordable, and larger sets like some of the Hogwarts sets (beware, there are several that make up the complete castle) and others with many unique and iconic pieces (such as the Quidditch Match set) easily available.

Despite my earlier hesitations, the tinkling sound of Lego pieces being sorted and scooped is a happy sound to me, a remembrance of hours and hours of intense, creative play by my sons. And now my youngest daughter.
Great article !! I am currently awaiting for a lot of Bricklink orders to to be delivered, covering the building-from-spare-parts of… 2.5 modulars ^^” Those are Cafe Corner, right-half of Market Street and Fire Brigade (I already had a lot of Dark Red bricks and tiles so it was a no-brainer !). Thus, having spent a lot of time and money in the process, I can confirm absolutely everything I just read in this article 😉 From Wanted Lists tips to problems with parts, I went through all of it, so it’s very pleasing and reassuring to know that other people have experienced that.
I ended up purchasing a second set of the Pet Shop and I’ll be totally honest I can’t remember if I either had the idea originally or saw it on-line, but it can be fun to build the second apartment building as a mirror to the first one. Also a bit of a mind bender if I remember correctly! I have mine set up with the two doors close to each other but it’s certainly easy enough to switch them around if you prefer them that way.
One thing I was impressed with this set while building is how large and simple the pieces were, and how straight forward construction was. Compared to say, set 9474 Lord of the Rings Battle of Helms Deep, this set was downright easy. Other than having to tie one knot and also decorating several pieces with a sheet of stickers, I’d say that younger children (ages 7-8) would have a pretty easy time putting the rest of this set together. Having put together this set, I’d say this is a very good value.

A brief note on some of the program names you guys might want to look for. Brickstore or brickstock are programs that fans can use to make custom wanted lists. The program will even let you spit out an .xml file for mass upload and allow you to share your work with friends.
The gate is approximately 10.5 inches tall, 5 inches across, and 2.5 inches deep with the drawbridge up. The drawbridge is able to raise and lower via ropes winding around a rod connected to knobs on the side. The gate raises and lowers in a similar fashion, although it does not have the same resistance. A lock is included on the side to keep the gate in one position.
Fair enough, and before the internet I think that would be a valid point. I personally cannot see how paying more makes collecting more fun? Its not like you work harder (other than for your money) to buy it. Instead of buying from one web site you just buy from another.
Hm… yeah, for large sets like this it is a good idea to keep the boxes, but it is not necessary. If you bought the set for yourself and have no intention of selling it, there is no reason to keep the box (unless you really like it and want to keep it). If you do plan to sell it, it doesn’t make a huge difference in the resale price of a used set to have or not have the box. Most people will throw it away anyway.
So what do you think? Do you keep track and take advantage of LEGO sets that are getting retired or are on sale? Have you found some great deals? Feel free to share and discuss in the comment section below! 😉
There are only two ships more iconic than the X-Wing, and both of them made this list. No rebel force will be complete without a fleet of X-Wings, but this 1,304 piece set is a bit too pricey for you to make your own squadron. Coming up with $3,500 to purchase one these resistance fighters might be as difficult as destroying the Death Star.
The best performers in both cases are sets that are no longer in production – with the price of the Mirkwood Elf Army set up a stonking 110% in the past 6 months according to Lego investing site BrickPicker.com .
A model like this deserves a great presentation. My first build was done inside a BiOrb (aquarium) and it was a challenge, but turned out really cool. The second build was displayed inside a terrarium from Exo-terra. The terrarium worked out much better. It has doors for easy access and interaction, and has space for the most important thing… A display turntable. Get one that can support about 7-10kg and has an AC adapter.

Yes, I know that sounds silly. Many Lego maniacs will sniff you out. But, lots of kids don’t really care where the Lego come from. Mine certainly didn’t. They were thrilled with this random bag my mom picked up at a garage sale for a few bucks.
Also included is set # 6210 Jabba’s Sail Barge. This set is mostly complete, missing all the mini figs except Jabba and missing one piece from the skiff (the light grey control panel) but I substituted another piece.

The eighth building in the series, LEGO 10232 Palace Cinema has been available since March 2013. It was the third corner building to be released, and the first modular building set that incorporated stickers into the design.
Jeff Chabot has a background in web development and design, as well as working in broadcast television as a studio engineer, lighting director and editor. He frequently writes about technology, broadcasting, digital entertainment, and the internet.
On 27 October 2014, Cartoon Network aired the television special Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered which details Superman wanting to recruit Batman into the Justice League while he is fighting Penguin and other villains over a gem, but he refuses the league. When Superman mysteriously goes missing, Batman recruits Flash to help find him. With nothing to report, they run into Captain Cold, who is trying to steal an Atlantean pillar in a desert. After a fight which results in the Batwing getting destroyed and Flash mysteriously disappearing, Batman defeats Cold, only for him and the pillar to go missing as well. He goes to Aquaman in the sea, who fights Black Manta for the trident of Poseidon, but he goes through a similar situation, where Aquaman disappears, Batman defeats Manta, and then he and the trident are warped away. Realizing that the Justice League is the target and not the artifacts Batman goes to Wonder Woman and Cyborg, who are fighting Luthor in Metropolis. As Luthor reveals an anonymous buyer wants the daily planet globe, Wonder Woman and Cyborg disappear, leaving Batman to defeat Luthor, only for him and the globe to disappear. Batman realizes that the plot was by Bat-Mite and it was to abduct the members of the Justice League and so that Batman can be the number one superhero in the universe.[3]
Whether you enjoy building and displaying your LEGO works of art and sharing them with friends who also love the classic toys or simply building and rebuilding whenever you see fit, this compilation is well worth exploring.

Spend rainy afternoons erecting LEGO masterpieces…or any other time you are in the mood to “build”! Have fun, and remember to pick up those little pieces! 🙂

Bane’s drill, though not really in character for him, is really, really cool. When you roll it, the drill part moves. The bat cycle included isn’t as nice as the one from the Funhouse set, but still good to have.

Fischertechnik offers a similar pneumatics system for robotic and control technology hobbyists. The Fischertechnik system includes an electrically activated air solenoid, a feature not available in the Lego range.
LEGO Technic system has always included a variety of different electric motors. Broadly, these divide into those powered by batteries, held in a connected battery box, or by mains electricity, via a transformer. Battery-power is the most common.

Then ride the roughest rocks with the high-performance extreme suspension. This heavy-duty model also features opening doors and top section. Rebuild it into a tough 4×4 off-road truck!
As with most other Lego sets it is excellent quality and detail! Took my son about 5-6 days working a few hours each day to complete this set. (Yes, mostly on his own with supervision to make sure parts didn’t get put backwards, which means total rebuild) He Loves all things Lego! He was so proud when it was finished and showed everybody!! There is a lot to this set as it is very large and has lots of working details. Recommend to all Lego fans!!
It has 4 floors, the exterior is fully decorated while the interior has only stairs included. Fits nicely into a modular city (see last photos with other buildings for height reference) especially as …
Here is the post from LEGO’s FB page: “Don’t miss the last screening at the Palace Cinema before the lights go down for the last time. This icon of any modular street corner will be retired soon; so get your tickets for cinema classics like Forever Sorting and The Brick Separator now.”
I first received it on Mar. 19th and found one motor missing in the original package. So I contacted the service and they shipped a new one to me immediately. Since I opened the package I got shocked for its wheels. Much bigger than the EV3 education ones and 42009. I will update after I received the new one.
Interestingly the #10224 LEGO Creator Town Hall is also shown as sold out. I have bought this set a few days ago when it was shown as backordered, as well as the #10243 LEGO Creator Parisian Restaurant – there was a few days of delay, but I have received both sets with no problems. At the time I placed the order I was told that the #10224 LEGO Creator Town Hall will be back in stock on the 16th, so I’m curious why it’s showing as sold out right now. There has been rumors that this set will retire early, so this may in fact be the end. If you are interested in this set I would highly suggest that you call LEGO’s customer service right now before it is too late.
I haven’t bought anything from the bricklink vendors. I have been slowly sorting my Lego bricks and use the part and set catalogs at Bricklink to reference the part #s, colors, etc. so that I can put them into http://www.rebrickable.com (another site worth looking into).

I agree that there is a pleasantry with simpler models, and affordability is just one factor contributing to it, but I also assert that the greater detail afforded by the larger scale has allowed much more variety, and with it the longevity and continued success of LEGO models.
Then one day one of my friends recommended a “natural remedy” doctor. ‘Oh great!’ I thought. A witch doctor who’s going to put some fake voodoo hex on my feet and tell me it hurts. No thanks. I’d rather go to a regular doctor who will hurt me the old fashioned way. But I decided to give it a try.
The LEGO Ninjago’s 70751 Temple of Airjitzu set is a highly detailed temple building with many surprises and features.

Below is a list of LEGO sets that are at risk of retiring soon in and around the 2018 calendar year. It is organized into sets that are at a high risk of retiring soon, medium risk, and low risk. Note that LEGO retirement dates are not an exact science and all sets that have been available for sufficiently long can be discontinued at any time, with no notice. Let us know your thoughts and leave a comment below.
The tenth modular building emerged in January 2015 in the form of 10246 Detective’s Office. Comprised of a pool hall, detective’s office, and barber shop, this set features an entire backstory based around ‘cookie smuggling’.
If you haven’t checked out Lego sets since you were a kid, you might be pleased to know they just aren’t for children anymore. Just like puzzle sets, there are a ton of Lego sets that are created and reproduced for a teenage or adult audience, those capable of handling the small details and thousands of pieces included in each set. These aren’t small, hundred-piece sets: they’re incredibly challenging, with long manuals and tons of pieces. Some are incredibly difficult to build without the focus and attention that comes with adulthood, while others include pneumatics and other moving parts that are challenging to children to create and enable. Some of them are even themed to suit adults, those of us who have interests in cars or architecture.

The devil’s in the detail with this one. To build a Millennium Falcon this textured and detailed, you have to piece together 5,197 bricks. Other LEGO versions of the fastest hunk of junk in the galaxy have been and gone over the years, but this is by far the most visually stunning. The price tag might stun you as well, since it’s a discontinued item…

Gears – Gears are flat cylinders with holes in the center; most have teeth around the edges. A large majority of gears can fit snugly onto axles. When used with rubber bands or strings, some gears can form pulleys. Most of the modern gears are one stud wide and have peg holes in them.

“discontinued lego lines +random lego sets”

What do you think? Have you considered piecing together retired LEGO sets? Or have you done it already? What was your experience? Are there any other tips I haven’t mentioned here that you would like to share? What retired LEGO set would you really like to get? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
Why is it a better deal?  Because buying used LEGOs is quite predictable in the sense is that is kind of disappointing.  I don’t really find “deals.”  Sure they are cheaper than buying new LEGOs but it’s not really comparable because you would never buy a mish-mosh of new LEGOs from various sets, right?  What would happen if you get a whole bunch of “special pieces”? Your child may not be familiar with that set/theme and thus may not know what to do with some of those pieces.  Those are usually the big klunky pieces that just take up space.  Find out what they are and use it or give it away.
Lego, like any company, has to periodically thin their line in order to make room for new sets. Production of parts can only occur at a particular rate and if too many sets are in production, they can’t meet the production of them all. Additionally, there’s only so much life that molds have and some sets which use unique molds are not likely to be continued beyond the lifespan of the mold. Once it breaks, they have to weigh the time and cost of replacing them to the time and money they will spend doing so as opposed to the money that could be made making a new mold for a new set altogether.
The rarer a set, the more money it’s worth. But Lego can do another run whenever it feels like it. The new Cinderella Castle, which was released last month, is a good example. It’s a 4,000-piece set, based on the Disney Resort castle. It has all the makings of a great investment: big set, never before released, and inspired by a behemoth brand—Disney. “It’s a $350 set that may hit $1,000 in a few months because every little girl in the world is going to want to build Cinderella’s castle,” he says. “On the flip side, Lego may keep making them for 10 years.” No one ever knows what Lego is thinking, so you need to be comfortable with your investment.
Brand new sealed, never got around to it so it’s up for sale. Camaro Drag Race set is actually discontinued and the average on eBay is anywhere from $72-100 posted – I want my money back. Audi Set is sold. Price is not negotiable. Pick up at Woodcroft

➡ LEGO ULTRA AGENTS SETS ON SALE: Yet another theme that is getting close to retirement is LEGO Ultra Agents. So far only a couple of sets are on sale; #70163 LEGO Ultra Agent’s Toxikita’s Toxic Meltdown, and #70161 LEGO Ultra Agents Tremor Track Infiltration. Both are great sets from the first wave of LEGO Ultra Agents, and it might be a good idea to keep checking if others go on sale as well. You can find them under the Sales & Deals section. BUY HERE
You won’t probably even recall a Sandcrawler that much from Episode IV, except for the fact that it’s full with Jawas and they sell C3-PO and R2-D2 to Luke Skywalker, but the LEGO version of this vehicle is full-packed with details.
With only 90 pieces, the Speeder Bikes set includes two Speeder Bikes, plus two Scout Troopers and Luke Skywalker. While not as big as the other sets, your collection will benefit from this awesome set, as will your wallet (it’s under $50)!
LEGO City Mining 4×4 set 4200 in good condition. Complete set with no missing pieces. Includes instructions (no box). This is a retired set. Check out my other ads for more stuff. Please email, call …
Making the list as one of the 7 most expensive Lego sets, this stunning model of the Eiffel Town was released in 2007 and is built to 1:100 scale from the original blueprints. This set includes realistic and enchanting features and details such as a flag at the top of the elevators, four lifts toward the bottom of the tower that transport figurines from the base to the center section, and a small, brick-built French flag. It holds the record for the tallest Lego structure produced into a set and contains over three-thousand pieces!
The next resource I found is http://retiringsets.com/, just from a google search I did one day. It seems decent for gathering information on retiring sets from different country Lego stores, plus including their own thoughts based on past history. (Like with the Pet Shop expected to be retiring soon)
I can give you some info. If you want a specific set check it weekly at the Lego store. It will get a retiring soon tag (not sold out or hard to get tags those are different). Past that check fan sites like this one, but don’t take anything said on them as the final truth.
Also, the Architecture series is a great source of models to build from spare parts. The best example is Marina Bay Sands : I managed to build it for approx. $80, whereas it goes for $800 in the market. And it was delighful 😀
For Lego collectors seeking the best and most expensive Lego sets, this set is one to get your hands on. One customer wrote, “This is my favorite so far. It was great seeing this fully [built] and sitting majestically on the cabinet. My friend suggested it may need some lights. Next time I put it together I may try adding a few light bricks inside so there will be a bit of a glow from it.” He may be referencing the fact that the Taj Mahal takes on different hues according to the time of the day; a pinkish color in the morning, a milk white in the evening, and a golden color at night.
LEGO Friends is of course not retiring as a theme as it is highly popular, however several of the individual sets are to give room to the new wave next year. The #3185 LEGO Friends Summer Riding Camp is a particularly nice set and it is listed for half price, and so is the #3186 LEGO Friends Emma’s Horse Trailer. You can’t go wrong with these sets as they are super sweet and have great resale value as well. You can fine them at the Retiring Soon section of the Online LEGO Shop.
Ah, got it. FYI – the Market was introduced at the beginning of the year and the Fire Brigade was introduced in the middle of the year. I would be shocked if the Market was still on shelves in 6 months, but I could be wrong. – Nathan Stohlmann Jan 3 ’12 at 4:06
Star Wars fans are no joke. They live, breathe and would eat all-things Star Wars if they can! In 1999, LEGO started to make Star Wars sets and figures and since then, these sets have become hot items for collectors. For the past 12 years, there have been more than 200 sets, and some of them have pretty high price tags, selling for well over $1,000. Since there are too many to list, we thought we’d feature 22 of the coolest Star Wars LEGO sets around!
You’ve put way more though into this than have. Since there is a lack of white bearded faces, I was considering Count Duku?’s face for president Snow. I got it some time ago but I can’t quite remember how and maybe use BrickForge hero hair in white.
This set also has a white horse, with decorative blanket / saddle and helmet. The horse is a newew styled horse, one that can rear up on its hind legs as well as move its head into a grazing position.
The Ewoks were some fierce little warriors and now you can build that epic battle on the forest moon of Endor with this 890-LEGO piece! You get 12 minfigs, including Han Solo, Princess Leia, Chewbacca, R2-D2 (classic deco), 2 Rebel commandos, 2 scout troopers, Death Star Trooper, and 3 Ewoks.

If they re-release sets that gained worth, that won’t do them a favor i think. Some sets i only bought because i hope they gain worth. If they start re-releasing everything good, i won’t do that anymore.
I gave this to my nephew yesterday for Christmas and he loved it. Right away we started to play with it. It has so many pieces and details that we only got to build 3 sets between us two. My nephew sure is going to have a blast building the whole thing all week haha that means he’s going to be entertained for many hours!! That will definitely give my sis some time to sit back and relax.
Don’t get me wrong.  I think LEGO bricks are super cool! I am a sucker for anything translucent and those miniature replicas of real-life objects steal my heart. (we have videocameras, pizzas, goggles, alligators, etc)  I love them just as much as I love those porcelain bathtubs of handcrafted wooden dollhouses. To me, LEGO is its own language – like visual poetry.
As for how we judge sets ourselves, we tend to break it down into two categories:  the build and the components.  We’re like any other Lego enthusiast, we love the build.  It needs to be challenging and engaging, not something that can be pieced together without instructions.  It doesn’t necessarily have to be a huge set, there is often a lot of fun to be had in smaller sets, but the build needs to grab our attention.  Most of those on our list end up being on the longer side for builds, as it’s the nature of the build that sets with more detailed builds will end up more engaging for us.

You will also find periodic sales or loyalty points at your neighborhood retail store and money spent there saves you time and you invest in your local economy! There is also the LEGO store/LEGO.com and you’ll probably find some deals at Amazon, Target, and Walmart.  (Please note, I’ve seen Amazon listing prices above MSRP too).   LEGO.com will show you actual MSRP. When things become retired, it might be much cheaper or much more expensive. Also, you might save by doing Store Pick-Up as sometimes the online prices are lower at some retail stores!
The Holiday 2017 LEGO catalog has started to reach home mailboxes and there are many set that are listed as “Last Chance!” meaning that they will be probably retiring at the end of the year or shortly after. These are in addition to the LEGO Creator Palace Cinema (10232) which LEGO posted about before on social media a few weeks ago.
Even on eBay you will have several options, depending on how much money you hope to make and how much work you are willing to do. If you take apart the sets, clean them, verify all the original pieces are present, re-pack them into bags and the original boxes with original instructions, you can make significantly more than if you just take a picture of the bulk lot and say “what you see is what you get”.
I finally got a copy of this set so I can write an actual review. I find many reviews on Amazon are negative because of item availability and aftermarket pricing. So here is an actual review of the set, not the market. Please see the customer image gallery for my build uploads.
However, if you want just (1) set, this would be a nice one to get. Compared to the original Jabba’s palace, this set is much more sturdy. I would not let the kids play with the older one because it would probably not last long and fall apart. This set however survives a 3yr old very well.

For the Lego collectors who love Batman, this set is to die for because it includes more than figurines and vehicles. This set also comes with Batman’s high-tech Bat Cave features control center, prison cell, and rocket and net launcher as well as other working gadgets like the costume transformation chamber.

➡ LEGO SETS RETIRING SOON: There are several LEGO Star Wars sets that are getting retired to give room for the 2015 LEGO Star War sets. Some of the highlights include the #75018 LEGO Star Wars Jek-14’s Stealth Starfighter, the #75019 LEGO Star Wars AT-TE, the #75022 LEGO Star Wars Mandalorian Speeder, the #75039 LEGO Star Wars V-wing Starfighter, and the #9493 LEGO Star Wars X-Wing Starfighter. None of them are listed for sale, just that they are retiring soon. In my experience if and when sets like this do go on sale they disappear so fast you will likely miss them. So if you are interested in any of these sets I would suggest you get them now before they are gone. You can find them all at the Retiring Soon section of the Online LEGO Shop.

Decide how much you are willing to spend on each lot.  If the lot includes minifigs, estimate the figures at $1 each (general minifigs resell for approximately $3).  If the lot includes castle minifigs or Star Wars minifigs, figure the price higher.  Calculate the rest of the Legos at about $8 to $10 per pound.  If it includes Star Wars or Castle specialty pieces, the price will be higher.  Just look at other auctions that are about to end and you’ll see what the going price is.

Having a list of parts needed in a spreadsheet is definitely helpful when buying all of the parts for a retired set. Early this year I decided that I had to have the LEGO Taj Mahal, and checked eBay and several other sites for prices. I definitely couldn’t afford to buy it new (or even used for that matter), and I had very few spare parts, so I decided to buy all of the parts. I made a list of all of the parts I needed, along with pictures, and organized it by color. It really helped to see the progress I was making on acquiring all of the parts. Luckily I was able to get all of the parts within about two months. I also substituted a few pieces with different colors, due to price, but they were pieces that would not be seen when the set was fully put together. It turned out very nice. Organization is definitely important!

My youngest child recently became a Lego fanatic (as am I). She was already enthralled by the Harry Potter books and movies, so the discovery that two of her favorite things were now combined (and just before Christmas, too) gave birth to a new obsession. Unfortunately, Lego stopped making Harry Potter Lego sets last year.
That makes sense since after the movie is out of theaters I imagine the sets don’t fly off the shelves. But it really causes the prices to skyrocket on the secondary market due to the limited availability.

The good witch doctor prescribed the LEGO Ultimate Building Set – 405 Pieces. I didn’t know how it would solve anything but he said to just put it somewhere low to the ground and he promised I’d see results. So I did. Sure enough, within minutes my children found them. Ever since, walking barefoot around my house as alleviated my “painless foot” syndrome. The best part about this remedy is, unlike traditional methods, you never know exactly WHEN the covert pieces embedded just below the carpet fibers are going to relieve your painlessness. My favorite times to receive treatment are between 1 AM and 5 AM.
Sacrebleu! Recreating this iconic French landmark in LEGO form takes 3,428 bricks. Most of them are titchy and gray. It’s a careful balancing act to get them all together without knocking the whole thing over, as well. This kit is aimed at ages 16 and up, and it’s a very precise and challenging project. Best of luck to anyone out there attempting it!
Yes. I definitely think that the current price for CMF is higher than their intrinsic worth, therefore we have a classic bubble on hand. It will burst at some point. However, I think the S1 and even S2 figures, on the other hand, are not overvalued and were not overvalued during the original sale run. Since S1 and S2 saw shorter manufacturing runs, the figures are more rare. Also being the first sets of its kind provide the added value we see with such objects like a first edition book. When we got to S3, levels of production increased making the items less rare. Pricing increased as well making purchase less compelling. If you’re looking at CMFs as an investment, I don’t think they really are anymore.

Modular Buildings is a series of Lego building toy sets introduced in 2007. Created in response to feedback and suggestions from the Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL), and the Teen Fans of Lego (TFOL) community, the sets in this series are generally intended for more advanced builders with most sets containing more than 2,000 total pieces and making use of unorthodox building techniques which have not been tried before in official Lego sets. In contrast to most LEGO sets which are aimed at children and adolescents, the suggested age of most sets in the Modular Buildings series is 16 years or older. The Modular Buildings sets have been received with positive reviews, being considered by Lego designers and fans as “toys for adults”.
I was so upset that I missed the last LEGO Batman line, especially the old Batcave. This is a somewhat scaled down version of that, but still really cool and more detailed than it might look at first glance.
It was a game changer for Lego which saw the introduction of many more pieces that were specific to the space theme which were more detailed than the traditional basic blocks that were already in circulation. That in turn opened up a much wider possibility for recreational building when combined with the early classic Lego sets and pieces.
eBay determines trending price through a machine learned model of the product’s sale prices within the last 90 days. “New” refers to a brand-new, unused, unopened, undamaged item, and “Used” refers to an item that has been used previously.
LEGO traditionally retires the oldest LEGO Modular Building amongst the currently available sets right around August/September, before a new model gets added to the collection at the beginning of the following year. Retiring a set means that LEGO is not making any more, and whatever stock is left will be sold until all the sets are gone. In the case of most of the previous LEGO Modular Buildings, the remaining sets sold out so fast that it caught people by surprise and they had to turn to the secondary market to purchase them for much higher prices. The currently available LEGO Modular Buildings are as follows:
The Detective’s Office (set number 10246) is the tenth set in the Modular Building line and was released January 1, 2015 at a MSRP of US$159/149€. This set contains 2262 pieces. It contains a detective’s office, a barber shop named “Al’s”, a billiards table “pool” room, and an upstairs apartment. The “Al’s” sign resembles the various brick-built lettering signs from the Pet Shop, Town Hall, and Fire Brigade. The featured “Pool” sign uses a building technique never used before. Inside the pool room features a fan, a pool table, and a dart board. The detective office features clues, a cabinet, and a secret storage space behind a picture. The barber shop features a mirror, scissors, lights, and chairs for customers. The apartment holds an old style toilet and a small kitchen. This Modular varies from previous buildings in that it introduced play features of a secretive or “illicit” nature: it has secret compartments that allow cookie smuggling throughout the building. It also is different because it is the first Modular to have two buildings on the same baseplate (Assembly Square being the other). The front of the building features a newspaper stand, a tree, and 2 balconies. It includes 6 minifigures.
A monkey isn’t conditioned to like one toy more than the other – so unlike what some think, human boys just naturally have a preference for technical toys and girls just the same are more likely to be interested in dolls and other toys that revolve around social interaction.

This is more of a surprise, as we see the Tower Bridge has received a box redesign after five years of availability, and the comparatively much younger Sydney Opera House has not received the updated Creator Expert logo. This indicates two potentially big surprises: The Tower Bridge may have some life left, and the Sydney Opera House could possibly be up for retirement in the near future.
I purchased this for my 10 year son who is a lego fanatic. For some reason Amazon wouldn’t post it so it was delivered to my sister in Vegas and flown out. This Town Hall is amazing, it took my son a day to build it and he has proclaimed that he will never pull it apart. The details are amazing and the building consists of three level with their own function. A wonderful addition to a lego collection, and although it says that it is for 14+ I think younger die-hard lego men will manage construction. This lego piece in Australia is $499.00, so Amazon please allow delivery to Australia as even with postage this is still a great deal – and I want to order some more!
This was the perfect gift for my son. Challenging but manageable and a pleasure for him to build. He could not have been happier. Very impressive looking and through in design and function. The perfect gift and an ideal keepsake with many happy memories for him and for our family.

So what do you think? How do you like the LEGO Modular Buildings? Do you own any of them? Which one is your favorite? And which one are you planning to get next? Feel free to share in the comment section below! 😉
BILLUND, DENMARK (April 1, 2015) – For many LEGO fans, the 10185 Café Corner and 10182 Green Grocer were some of our most popular sets in the LEGO Modular Building series. For the newer LEGO fans who may have missed out on them, we’re now bringing these sets back, for a limited time, the same way that they were released in 2007 and 2008, respectively. This reintroduction of the sets will also bring a brand new theme called Revival.
Only down side is that the motor is kind of weak. Particularly the ankering function only half way operate via motor. Im pretty sure I assembled everything correctly and give the pieces adequate spaces to make it operate smoothly. There’s just too many gears to turn for a small motor. Also it would be a huge blow to my 31 year old self esteem if I couldn’t even assemble a Lego that’s meant for low teens. But seriously, this set was very time consuming to make.
The minifigures are worth the price of this set alone. The Penguin is of course cool, and he comes with an umbrella and a little detonator for the dynamite, but I think the unique scuba Batman is the best part of the set. He comes in a navy blue batsuit with a harpoon gun and scuba tank. His face is also two-sided; one side has his normal Batman face while the other shows him with a diving mask and respirator, and it looks really neat under the cowl.
Batman and Robin are holding Poison Ivy at the Batcave. But look out. Bane has broken into the Batcave in his awesome spinning drill tank and is trying to rescue Poison Ivy. Help Batman and Robin put Bane back behind bars where he belongs. Includes minifigures: Bruce Wayne, Batman, Robin, Poison Ivy and Bane.

This  is an easy one to answer yourself if you know where to look… However, the answer will vary depending on when you do the research. The  price will increase as time goes by, they aren’t making any more Cafe  Corners, Green Grocers or Market Streets
I find the Market Village and Fire Brigade dates dubious.. goes against what we have seen in the past from Lego, but if that is what they say maybe something has changed…… Besides I thought that Amazon shows the MMV as discontinued from Lego?
For starters, this set consists of 1,123 pieces in the tricky Technic mold. On top of that, there’s an electronic element and lots of moving parts. Getting this baby to roll, twist, and excavate like it’s supposed to is no easy task. It also takes no less than 12 batteries to get the thing moving.
POWER FUNCTIONS SET PRO with SBRICK. The SBRICK 4 Outputs to connect Power Functions motors and lights (Lego receiver has only 2). 2 Lego Medium Motors. 1 Lego Short Cable. 1 Lego Battery Box(Uses 6 AA Batteries – Not included).
A sequel to the first Lego Batman called Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes was released in 2012 and included other DC Comics characters like Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and The Flash, most of them appearing towards the end of the story.
Earlier this year, LEGO began to update the retail box designs for their Creator Expert theme of sets. This has become a talking point among many LEGO collectors and investors who have been wondering what exactly this means, and how it may affect the retirement dates of particular sets. The new logo is made up of six 1×1 angular bricks arranged in a continuously connecting pattern reminiscent of a LEGO MC Escher painting. The new logo made its debut with the release of 2015’s 10248 Ferrari F40 and has since unified the Creator Expert lineup box logos… almost. A mass redesign of boxes for available sets is an unprecedented move by LEGO, so nobody knows for certain what exactly the meaning is behind this move, but reasonable deductions can possibly be inferred from it.
Also, I’m guessing that parting each set out would be significantly cheaper than paying the new/used prices for the full set? Any other thoughts you have on how to collect the retired modulars for as cheap as possible would be great!
Beautiful soft butterfly wings or bird wings available in many colours and designs. Lots of fun for your little one.

As we mentioned up top, using Lego sets to connect with your kids as you build and assemble sets and series can be a ton of fun for both you and them. One major problem with our sets so far: some kids might just not be interested in cars or architecture. It’s only natural for children to grow into their own interests as they age, so if you want to try connecting with something almost every child loves at some point, you should try some of our Lego Star Wars sets we’ve collected within this list. The first of our three entries involves one of the most notable, important ships from the entire franchise: the Millennium Falcon. Han Solo’s classic light freighter was recreated when Star Wars: The Force Awakens came out, and this particular set includes figures for Han, Chewie, Rey, Finn, and everyone’s favorite droid, BB-8, plus a couple other characters you might remember from a fun scene within the film. The set’s a bit pricey at $117, but with over 1,300 pieces, it’ll keep you busy for hours to come. Bonus: if you can find it for a reasonable price online (read: under $1,000), the Ultimate Collector’s Millennium Falcon was a limited-run item from a few years ago that was massive and came with over 5,000 pieces. It’s neat, but for the price, you’re better off with the cheaper model.
Lego fans will be ecstatic to know the set measures over 6″ high and 17″ wide, making it great for display while not remaining too large to find a place to build and assemble in your house. The Lego set comes with standard Lego instructions, with one particular improvement: this set also includes a booklet containing information about the historical facts, design, and architecture of this specific building, making it a great set for Lego-enthusiasts, puzzle lovers, and history buffs. The set is incredibly accurate, earning high marks from Lego fans for its focus on accurately recreating and sculpting such an interesting and historical building. The set includes the Capitol’s neoclassical facade, dome, colonnades, north and south wings, steps and lawns. What’s even cooler: if you remove the dome, you can gain access to the rotunda inside the Capitol, featuring columns, eight statue elements, and even a tiled floor.
I think a hospital or school might be too large. Instead of a hospital I could imagine a health clinic (pharmacy, dentist, general practitioner) . Instead of a school I could picture a childcare centre (play equipment, nursery, kid’s art projects).
Fair enough, and before the internet I think that would be a valid point. I personally cannot see how paying more makes collecting more fun? Its not like you work harder (other than for your money) to buy it. Instead of buying from one web site you just buy from another.
The Hot Wheels Elite One The Dark Knight Batmobile is based on the design of Batman’s ride from the Dark Knight films. As the description states, “as midnight tolls in Gotham City, evildoers begin carrying out their dark deeds,” and that’s when our superhero hops into the Batmobile and takes off as the city’s caped crusader.

So, what do you think – ready to design and build your own Lego modular? Assuming you have enough pieces, it is not as hard as it looks – at least to build the exterior of a building. Simply begin with a board and create the bottom shape (you can copy from another modular if you like) then keep building up adding doors, windows, etc. The real challenge comes when you start designing the interior – all of those little details and making them fit together can be overwhelming.

They don’t always discontinue them– the best example I can think of is probably the Star Destroyer, which was around longer than LEGO initially expected, thanks to excellent sales. They offered it in catalogs from at least 2002 to 2007 (6 years). If they offered the UCS MF that long, it would be in catalogs until at least 2012!

Also, when it is a line of products people who got into the game late will want to purchase the earlier models. If you just found out about Fire Brigade and Emporium, you looked into it and found out about Cafe Corner being an earlier set in the line, you’d might really want to get one.
Here is a job lot of all 12 of the Lego Star Wars planets sets. All the planets and mini models are 100% complete. However, the minifigures are only present for two of them – Sebulba, and the droid R4…

It’s becoming more and more well-known: grownups love LEGOs too! Over the past few years, the sets available to us “big kids” are becoming more elaborate and frankly, quite impressive. This growing trend inspired us to create the top 10 best LEGO sets for grown-ups, a comprehensive list featuring the coolest adult-worthy sets of today.
The Tumbler is a challenging build, with 1,869 mostly black pieces. It’s an intricate design, modelled after the Tumbler seen in The Dark Knight trilogy, and comes in at over 5” high, 15” long and 9” wide. It has an armored exterior, adjustable top wings, a detailed interior, and huge rubber-tread racing tires, as well as exclusive Batman and Joker minifigures.
I think you’d find that because of specilist parts that are in the UCS models, that as has been said before, require special molds, it wouldn’t be worth carrying on production. They need to modernise after all. So if something’s new then sacrifice something old for it surely ? 🙂
My 7 year old lego loving daughter has been asking for this Batcave for MONTHS. We finally bought it for her and she was not disappointed! She is way into legos, and she can usually build the sets pretty quick, which is good for her ego, but bad when you spend so much money on something that they are interested in for only about an hour. Fortunately, this set took her several hours to build! And, it has the added bonus of being an actual play set where she and her brother can sit around and play with the little characters that come with it… I mean its a functioning Batcave. It has brought them hours of entertainment so far!
My boys have spent hours playing with this set in the bath! They have loads of fun and use lots of imagination. They did break it into a few pieces after having it in the tub a few times, but that is to be expected. We just fix it real quick and it is ready to go in the tub for some more fun. You get so much with this set. There is a large Coast Guard boat, a helicopter, a patrol boat, a submarine, a lighthouse, 6 minifigs, a dog, a crab, and 3 sharks (awesome fun in the tub). If you are considering this set, just buy it! I can’t imagine anyone being disappointed in this amazing Coast Guard set.
Beams – Beams are long blocks with rows of round holes. All beams are one stud wide, but they can have varying lengths. They constitute the basic structure of the TECHNIC system. Before 2000, the TECHNIC system used TECHNIC bricks, essentially standard bricks with holes along the sides. Beams are part of “studless construction”, which allows TECHNIC models to be more compact. They have rounded edges and no studs.
@Si_Dorking_Surrey_UK: If you don’t use the dark blue and white hose (they have black at pick a brick), then you can easily construct that set for about $150 or less. I’m not good with matching colors, but some other complimentary color schemes must be out there…. (i.e. green and dark green; sand and brown; pink and brick red). It would be pretty neat to see several different colored Market Street in a block.
A challenge faced by the designers of these sets is that they are not able to work with the full palette of Lego bricks and colors ever produced when designing. Instead they are limited to the bricks and colors currently in production by Lego at the time of the product design. As an example, for Café Corner, the designer wanted to include a bicycle piece in the set, but at the time, the machine that made bicycle pieces was broken. It had to be fixed in order for the designer to be able to include the piece in his design.[1] With Market Street, the fan designer was limited to only the bricks and color combinations available as ‘active components,’ meaning bricks that were already in production. No new bricks could be introduced.[3]
Space (City) is the third attempt at depicting contemporary efforts in space. The theme was preceded by Shuttle Adventure, which was released in 2010 under the Lego Exclusives line to coincide with the retirement of the Space Shuttle. The set proved to be extremely popular among children and was re-released in 2011 as Shuttle Expedition with several re-designs to improve playability.
On 27 October 2014, Cartoon Network aired the television special Lego DC Comics: Batman Be-Leaguered which details Superman wanting to recruit Batman into the Justice League while he is fighting Penguin and other villains over a gem, but he refuses the league. When Superman mysteriously goes missing, Batman recruits Flash to help find him. With nothing to report, they run into Captain Cold, who is trying to steal an Atlantean pillar in a desert. After a fight which results in the Batwing getting destroyed and Flash mysteriously disappearing, Batman defeats Cold, only for him and the pillar to go missing as well. He goes to Aquaman in the sea, who fights Black Manta for the trident of Poseidon, but he goes through a similar situation, where Aquaman disappears, Batman defeats Manta, and then he and the trident are warped away. Realizing that the Justice League is the target and not the artifacts Batman goes to Wonder Woman and Cyborg, who are fighting Luthor in Metropolis. As Luthor reveals an anonymous buyer wants the daily planet globe, Wonder Woman and Cyborg disappear, leaving Batman to defeat Luthor, only for him and the globe to disappear. Batman realizes that the plot was by Bat-Mite and it was to abduct the members of the Justice League and so that Batman can be the number one superhero in the universe.[3]

My biggest regret like most people here is not buying more than one of these sets. If you bought the Cafe Corner, you would know that LEGO literally encourages you to buy 2,3 or 6 of them, to build yourself a skyscraper…. Don’t believe me, check out the instructions for the set. Had you been insane enough to do that, you would now be considered one smart LEGO collector. I recommended to so many of my LEGO friends to buy these sets, but many of them thought they to be too expensive. I wished I had listened to myself and bought more of them.
I built Market Street via Bricklink so I’m well aware of the difficulties. On a positive note, having completed that project has given me an appreciation for those people who create their own creations from bricks sourced through Bricklink or Pick a Brick.
The Brick Bank features a bank, secretary’s office, bank manager’s office, laundromat and a detailed façade and sidewalk. The bank features an atrium foyer with wide, arched entrance, triangular-patterned floor tiling, ornate chandelier, oxidized-copper colored skylight, transaction counter with hidden alarm buttons and security glass, and a bank vault with safe deposit boxes and a large round door. The laundromat features a printed window, tiled floor and four laundry machines—one of which contains an “easter egg” play feature for “laundering money”: placing LEGO money-bills or coin elements through this machine will fall into a special deposit box inside the bank’s vault. (The rooftop also has another play feature for a robber to descend the chimney by rope and exit through a special entrance atop the bank vault.) The secretary’s office features a wall clock, desk, typewriter, cabinet with opening drawers, fireplace and an espresso machine. The bank manager’s office features a large desk with banker’s lamp and approval stamp, leather-look chair, printed portrait, statue and a cabinet. It includes 5 minifigures.

They actually got shipped out just one day apart, but this way I got two holiday sets. Love those little elves! 😛
