Thank you for visiting our Lego Modular Series page. We hope you enjoyed these as much as we do! Be sure to let us know in the comments section below how your Lego modular town is coming along and happy building!
Over the holidays, my niece got a larger Friends LEGO set and I helped her put it together (it had around 1200 pieces!). I was once again bitten by the LEGO bug. I hadn’t played with LEGO’s for nearly 20 years but now I had to! I looked around LEGO’s website to see what kinds of sets were available – I had seen all the movie sets and what not already in the stores, but wanted something more interesting… Saw these Creator sets and I just had to have them. I ended up getting the 4 that are currently available (Town Hall, Pet Shop, Fire Brigade & Grand Emporium). Too bad the other 2/3 are valued so highly and cost around $1000 each (too rich for my pockets!) but I am looking forward to the Chinese Theatre that will be coming out sometime this year. I wish they made more than 1 of these each year! This set took me about 5-6 hours to complete and it is magnificent! I did a time lapse photo shoot of it as well (which may have increased my build time a little). I’ve completed 3 out the 4 sets I’ve purchased and they are some of the best looking sets I’ve seen and truly had a blast putting them together. One the best parts about these buildings is that they are designed to be connected together to make a street out of them. Can’t wait to get more LEGO sets to build in the future.
The Fire Brigade (set # 10197) has a furnished interior but is unusual in that it only has two floors instead of the usual three. This is due to the first floor having raised ceilings to allow for the entrance of the fire truck. The top floor is superbly decorated with a small kitchen and recreational area including a couch and ping-pong table for the firefighters! The fire truck has some wonderful vintage details and the bell and water barrel on the roof and American flag on the front really add to its overall charm.
I was in a similar boat, ignored the early modular sets (partly due to price at the time despite thinking they looked great), and with the pet shop release have now decided to pass altogether – I would if i could, but i just don’t have the income to branch into this series, (in addition to Collectable Minifigs, OT Star Wars, probably POTC, and other ‘nice stuff’ such as some of the unusual Alien Conquest bits), AND chase the ones i missed. BUT my advice would be this: if you love the sets and you’re going to jump in, do so without delay, as you’ll only end up wanting the whole lot eventually. The longer you leave it, the easier it is to pass (as i have done much to the relief of my wallet) – but it will be that much harder to catch up if you change your mind.
My grandson, six years old, put this together by himself, these toys add so much to children’s lives. It gets them off of the computer and building with their hands. He is six and is able to follow the directions, I think following directions is a skill that many children miss in their younger years. These toys are good not only for their dexterity it makes them think about what comes next.
There has been a few great cars on LEGO Technic, like an Enzo Ferrari. This supercar is an example of how cool it can look… although if you google a bit you will see MOC by people that make this car look like a toy.

DUPLO: DUPLO sets are designed to get babies building from the age of 18 months all the way up to 5 years old. These LEGO bricks are much larger so that they are easier for little hands to maneuver and do not pose a choking hazard. Many of these sets feature character favorites like Cars, Disney princesses, and Batman.
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’.

Why? Although it won’t take off the ground it is a really cool looking helicopter and you can add Power Functions so the rotor spins like a real helicopter. This is one of the next model I will buy. Here is my review. I really enjoyed this set.
“Holy Lego set, Batman!” as Robin would probably say following the purchase of this awe-inspiring Lego set. This Lego set is one of the best around, with an array of detailed pieces and intricate designs. Some of the pieces included in the set are Alfred the Butler, Batman (black suit), Bruce Wayne, Robin, Mr. Freeze (with complete weapon assembly), Mr. Freeze’s Henchman, The Penguin, Robin’s jet-ski, the Batblade ice sledge, and the Penguin’s submarine.
These modular sets also have eye appeal, which helps in their increasing value… but I’m always careful of new items as investments…. one has only to look at the very collectible Princess Diana Beanie Babies…. and their once high demand.
My impression of the “discontinued” dates listed above is that they’re the projected times when the sets should be removed from the available inventory, assuming they haven’t already sold out. IE, if 10211 hasn’t already sold out before December 2013, that’s the date that they’ll remove it from the catalog regardless. And they’ll probably put it on sale X months before then to try and encourage it to sell out.
This is a giant set with 2766 pieces. This set also contains the rare color rust brown ish color. I do not know the official name for this color, but it is rare, and you get a lot of the pieces in thi…
Another beautiful landmark in LEGO form here, thanks to the expert-level LEGO Creator range. This Sydney Opera House build measures up at 2,989 pieces. The shape of the building itself, with all its angled walls, makes this a hefty challenge even for a seasoned master builder.

It also includes 2 fully-furnished floors with fire-fighting tools, racks for the firemen’s helmets, fire-pole, ping-pong table, kitchen with fully-stocked fridge, couch, bookshelf and a roof with a water tower and bell. Measures 14″ (35 cm) high and 10″ (25 cm) wide.
I wouldn’t worry too much about the retired sets. Aftermarket prices increase with time, but not as much as when a popular set retires. Just get in on the lineup before it progresses even more than it has now.
Large-size, well-constructed set with a lot of useful pieces and some really neat touches (the brick tiling, the bell, the numbered ‘engraving’, a little water tower…). Almost 3x more expensive though now then when I first bought it. :/
Lego obtained the license to produce sets based on all available mediums in which Batman appears. Lego released a line of Batman sets in June 2008 to tie in (albeit indirectly) with the release of The Dark Knight. However, these sets do not directly reflect sequences or scenarios in the film, unlike most of Lego’s other movie tie-in lines with all Batman sets. Sets include villains from TV shows and movies.[1]

These sets are NOT overpriced. Most of these sets are constructed of rare bricks and colors. They provide a very fun building experience that is rivaled by few sets. These sets are not hollow, but are complete with interiors and with the latter sets being completely furnished.
Cute set. Took a short time to build. Love the colors! 2 cool little mini figures with lots of great diving accessories.Bonus: The boat floats! Definitely one to buy for the kiddies or to add to your collection.
This is a solid set. The camper is 6 studs wide. The directions are straight forward. There is a fair amount of stickers for this set so some younger builders might need some help with application. I like the storage on top of the camper for vests and oars. I for the price this set is almost perfect. My only complaints would be the following:

Thanks so much for posting this. We have many Lego fans here at our house. I was so stuck on what sets to get for my girls and many stores are sold out on the sets my girls want and Amazon is charging way too much. Sad. So, I was glad to read your tips so off we went to the Lego store to pick up bricks as well as ordering a book through your link. Thanks for the help.

Public transport: St Albans is a well connected commuter city with many bus routes and two train Stations (SAC and SAA). The shop is around 15 minutes walk from either train station and around 3 minutes walk from town centre bus stops on St Peters Street.
But I did it for my kids.  Number 1 Son loves LEGOs.  So many children do but do parents and teachers love LEGO too?  Maybe, but how about buying LEGO?  I am not in love with shopping for LEGOs- it’s work!  For one, those sets make me crazy.  They are so expensive and after they fall apart (because no child will let you glue them), there are many pieces that are not open-ended enough to inspire more building.
Star Wars and Lego are both global phenomenon in there own right and have separately produced some of the most sought-after memorabilia in the history of popular culture. When the superpowers met however, a holy alliance of bricks and studs was born.
This set has been sold out from Lego for some time now and has been discontinued so the price is only going to go up from here, so if you don’t have this one yet, this is your chance to get it before …
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.”
Sometimes you may run into the issue with a piece that is just not convenient to get. Or it is possible that facing $3 per piece is bit hard to swallow. Thankfully there are a number of work-around solutions to problems like these. The first is finding if there is a part with a Matching ID (MID). If you go to the parts inventory of the set on BrickLink, parts with a MID have a mark in a column to the far right. This means that if you go to the very bottom of the inventory you can find parts that are slightly different (like they have hollow studs instead of filled or they have a few extra notches), but essentially they will look and act identical.
Scrub water-sensitive parts with a dry towel or toothbrush. Set aside any pieces with stickers or printed patterns, as well as any multi-part units that are not meant to be separated, such as turntables. Scrub these with a dry towel, or remove serious grime using a new toothbrush.
They even manage to maintain some minor level of screen accuracy (to reason of course). Many recall the scene from Star Wars (Ep. IV 1977) where Luke, Chewy and Han spring Leia from her prison cell aboard the Death Star then flee into the garbage chute, only to face the Dianoga and imminently collapsing walls of the compactor. You can recreate this scene exactly. And I recently discovered you can even throw the minifigures into the garbage chute and they will land in the garbage compactor. There is also a lever that then allows you to collapse the walls. There are even little bits of garbage and the dreaded Dianoga included.
Stir the pieces around once an hour. Stirring the small pieces around with a stick or gloved hand will dislodge the bubbles causing them to float. Try this every hour or so for best results. If you leave pieces floating too long, they can develop a cloudy white marking along the water line.[6]
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.

➡ 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
To sum it up: It’s really hard to save money when you love something that is not cheap. We must face the music. They are really so darn cute.  But if you can share with your kids how to really value them, perhaps shopping for them won’t be so depressing and you will spend less money and energy on them.  Knowing their price and their potential for self-expression will help the kids understand why they should take care of their pieces.  And when you are done with them, store them away for the future grandkids (with instructions too)- thankfully, LEGOs are pretty small.
Finally, look for high quantities of a piece in the parts-list. My rule of thumb is to look at anything that uses double digits – so 10 or more. Many times I can disregard small pieces like 1×1 bricks that I know I have plenty of. Once you identify parts you are concerned about, click on that part’s number, select the right color, and see what they are selling for. It is important to keep an eye on the country the seller is from since shipping will eat at your budget faster than anything else. It was during this time I discovered that I not only needed fifty 1×8 sand-green bricks, but that they were each about $2.50. After $125 total for that, I discovered I also needed fifty-six 1×2 sand-green bricks with a groove. They were just as expensive. Not great for my budget. And even after being able to identify some of these obvious expensive pieces, you can still run into rare parts you might not have expected. In the case of the #10185 LEGO Modular Green Grocer, there was a blue arch piece that came in very few other sets, thus it was expensive.

My son really loves this set. He has built it, taken it apart and built it again multiple times. He and my 3 year old daughter have so much fun playing with the characters and the horses in and on the castle. Pricey but definitely worth it- I cannot begin to calculate the amount of hours this has kept *both* of my kids occupied. I also love that, when built, the structure is very sturdy and easy to move around. The kids regularly move it from the play table to the floor and back again without any pieces breaking, etc. which is so common with legos.
This castle has a very LARGE footprint of 13×11.5 inches in its standard configuration. The courtyard is about 9.5×6.5 inches, if I recall correctly this is much bigger than the previous Kingdoms castle set. The set is built in six sections; there are three alternate configurations shown on the box.
➡ #60097 LEGO CITY SQUARE: This is another great LEGO City set that features some very useful modules to jumpstart a LEGO City collection, or expand a current LEGO City layout. Included are a tram, a red car, a yellow car, a black car, a flatbed truck, a LEGO delivery truck, a helicopter, a car dealership, a LEGO store, a tram stop a coffee shop. Plus you also get 14 minifigures with assorted accessories: tram driver, helicopter pilot, coffee shop saleswoman, pizza deliveryman, car saleswoman, mechanic, tow truck driver, hotdog salesman, LEGO sales person, LEGO delivery driver, a girl and a boy, and 2 LEGO store statues. One of the best LEGO City sets of recent time that is getting retired. 1,683 pieces. Regular price: $189.99 – Sale Price: $151.99 – BUY HERE
I think this is mainly a problem with series like the Modulars. Relatively few people paid attention to the firs couple of the buildings, but when it became clear that it was going to be a series, people wanted to collect all of them, including the ones that were now retired. There are also new people who are just getting into LEGO due to the popularity of The LEGO Movie who missed out on some great sets. They can do as you mention, and just focus on the newest sets, but if it is a series like the Modulars and they really would like to have a full collection, their only option is to shell out $$$s or to piece together the set themselves.
Have pieces but don’t know which kit it is from?  If you think they came from one household then chances are that you have lots of the pieces of that kit.  If so, then just go to this LEGO Building Instructions page, punch in some keywords and see what you can come up with.  Maybe you’re only missing a few pieces and it might be fun to build something this way.
For example I read that LEGO City set are number one in Europe, while in the US the top sellers are Star Wars and Ninjago. LEGO does have to take these things into consideration, otherwise they could end up with huge stocks of sets just sitting in one region, when they could easily sell them somewhere else. And when they do end up with extras in an area, it makes sense to just sell that stock locally at a discounted price, rather than shipping it half way around the word. So there is a lot of logistics involved. It is not about not treating customers equally, even if sometimes it feels that way. 🙂
Lego clearly wants to keep the history going as the Star Wars theme is consistently among the upper echelon of Lego themes in terms of the most sets coming out in a year. Part of is due to the recent and planned theatrical releases of The Force Awakens, Rogue One, and The Last Jedi and, naturally, they still frequently draw from the first six movies in the franchise. Lego doesn’t stop there, however, as the animated shows Freemaker Adventures, Rebels, and Clone Wars all have sets that are not retired as of 2017. Eight movies and three television shows, that’s a lot of source material to choose from. What made it into our top ten list? Find out below.
➡ LEGO CITY VOLCANO SETS ON SALE: The LEGO City Volcano Exploration line is getting retired in favor of the recently released LEGO City Jungle Exploration theme, so most of the remaining LEGO City Volcano sets are now on sale. There are some really nice sets in the collection, like the #60125 LEGO City Volcano Heavy-Lift Helicopter, the #60124 LEGO City Volcano Exploration Base, the #60123 LEGO City Volcano Supply Helicopter, and the #60121 LEGO City Volcano Exploration Truck. You can find them under the LEGO City section, or just go to the Sales & Deals section of the Online LEGO Shop.
I haven’t been a collector for long, but I’m a hard-core Star Wars fan since I saw Episode VI in the cinema when I was 5 years old. I didn’t know it then, but a LEGO collection was in my long distant future.
