Over the years, several new pieces were introduced in this line as well. The new pump was spring based, and could only be operated by hand, which limited pneumatic power to how fast it could be manually pumped. This obviously limited the power of pneumatic circuits. So in 1992, LEGO introduced two new pieces; a small pump and a small cylinder. The small pump did not have a spring on it, and it was designed to be operated by a motor, which would allow for continuously-running pneumatic creations. As of 2011, the small pump has only appeared in one set — 8868 Air Tech Claw Rig (1992) (found on Peeron) — and a few parts sets (no longer available). A new version of the small pump was released in Lego set 8110 Unimog U400 (2011). At 2L, this pump’s stroke is 1/3 longer than the old one’s 1.5L, ‘L’ being the LEGO unit of a stud. This made it much easier to use in studless construction.
Gary (@istokg) you’re spot on about the gimmickry, but that’s part of the point with these sets. If you listen to designer Jamie Berard talking about the Modulars, it’s clear that one of the objectives is to employ novel building techniques and use pieces in unusual ways as much to teach AFOLs new ways of building as it is to “surprise and delight” us (as he himself says in one of his videos). It’s also a way of sneaking unusual colours back onto the palate in greater quantities – remember all that Sand Green in Green Grocer, Medium Blue in Market Street, and then there’s Sand Blue in Pet Shop. This is I believe very much a deliberate move to “delight” AFOLs. Finally, I would also challenge your assertion that they’re overpriced; in so much as ALL LEGO is expensive you’re correct, but compared with many other sets the parts to price ratio is a bit of a steal.
Lego’s Technic line is a series we haven’t mentioned in this list up to now, but it’s worth taking note of if you’re seriously into pneumatics and building what amount to movable puzzles. In addition to the standard Lego pieces that you expect from the block company, their Technic line—originally called Technical sets when it was created in 1977 before being renamed in 1984—utilizes a series of interconnecting plastic rods and parts to build vehicles and other movable machines that are really fun—and challenging—to create. If you’ve ever used a Mindstorms Robotic series, you’ll know what the Technic line is similar to, without the additional programming involved in robotics. This Mercedes-Benz Arocs set is one of the coolest kits we’ve ever seen: it features modular cylinders, valves, gears, and pumps, along with an engine and a power box to power the on-board crane that can reach up to 57cm in the air. Seriously, this thing is cool—and at $245, it isn’t cheap either. But the entire kit includes over 2,700 pieces, making it one of the largest and highest-detailed kids on our list. If you’re looking for something to experiment with, this Mercedes-Benz set will keep you challenged for weeks as you assemble and build a movable pneumatic structure.
After calculating the price for the entire set, you can now order all the pieces by price so you can see which are the ones causing the greater damage. So, for my example, the UCS Millennium Falcon still costs US$ 3800. We’re now US$ 2600 down from the original price, but still, a lot of money.
Assembly Square (set number: 10255) is the twelfth set in the Modular Building line. It was released on 1 January, 2017 at a MSRP of US$279/239€. This set contains the most pieces of any previous Modular set at 4002 pieces as well as the most minifigures: 9 (just barely by being the third LEGO set release to include an infant).

Juniors: Juniors sets are for kids ages 4 to 8. These sets feature traditional LEGO bricks, but the sets are smaller and easier to build. These sets can introduce children to building by following instructions.
The 3rd image takes those same railing fence pieces, and along with some of those (now rare and pricey) Belville “gingerbread” arches… made a Victorian Gazebo with them. This time I didn’t use any of the sticker parts to hide the “notches”. I sent this image to Jamie Berard 2 years ago (after he ordered my LEGO Sets/Parts Collectors Guide on CD)… and he really liked it… but said that his team of designers were NOT allowed to mix in Belville parts with their designs. I do believe that this restriction has since been lifted… but wouldn’t this make a nice addition in a park adjacent to the Victorian row of designer models?? All it needs is some minifigs, trees… and maybe a minifig brass band! 🙂
“GT Mechanicmaniac” is the name of the G E N I O U S who created this LEGO MOC Technic VW Phaeton 6.0 W12 in scale 1-7. The video lasts almost 30 minutes, but if you really love Technic creations, if you really are a purist of this art, you’ll savor eagerly every detail of this monster. So…Enjoy!!! 😀
This set is an overall great value from Lego. Also, it is one of only two corner buildings in the modular series so far, so if you want to make a square block, you’ll have to pick up a couple of these since the other corner unit (Cafe Corner) is no longer available unless you’re willing to spend $1,500+ on eBay.
This set offers a ton of play — the boat floats, the raft floats, there’s a helicopter (with pontoons — DOES NOT FLOAT), there’s a submersible (DOES SINK, heh heh), a lighthouse, and sharks. Plus 6 minifigs! Pilot, captain, first mate, second mate, and a happy couple. Plus a dog. Plus a popsicle!
I bought this LEGO Ultimate Building Set with 405 Pieces in it for my son for Christmas. He is a Lego lover extraordinaire and little Mr. Creative. This set is just the right size for any possibility you could think of. It allows for great imagination as it is lots of basic pieces. He loved the fact that it has its own plastic box with a lid to store his Legos in. There is also room for lots of extra parts and pieces. This also included a base plate, windows, doors, and wheels. A great value for either a beginner builder or for the one who has everything as you can never ever have too many Legos.
My view is that the modular buildings are must-haves for AFOLs. They are expensive, but they are beautiful. If you think you might want to collect them, buy the current ones now before they are discontinued. As you say, they skyrocket in price once they are no longer available from LEGO direct.
@drdavewatford, the reason for the great color choice and appeal to AFOLs stems from Jamie Beard (according to “LEGO: A Love Story”), an AFOL turned set designer, argued with LEGO on our behalf to get us sets in the rare colors. You can also thank him for the small windows, which were created for the sets at his strong suggestion.
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.
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…
The birth of these themed Legos would lead them to the throne of the toy industry, and it was licensed theme sets that saved Lego from bankrupcy in the 1990s. The birth rate was declining, video games were on the rise, and children were simply not playing with toys that did not provide instant satisfaction. The amount of time it took to build an unknown Lego set was not worth the investment to many children.
I think they are cool, but they are a lot cooler when assembled into a city block. Just don’t want to have 1 or 2 and have it look stupid. Like the corner shops, looks like there are only 2 and they are both retired, so i hope LEGO offers some more corner shops in the future.

One of the things we love about the Lego Creator Tower Bridge set is how it combines historical and real-world locations with the fun and excitement that comes with a Lego set. It isn’t cheap, but the Tower Bridge set, similar to the Assembly Square set above, feels great when you’re building it. When it comes to these Creator Expert sets, 4,000 pieces or more seems to be a great balance between scale and complexity, and the Tower Bridge set is no exception. With almost 4,300 pieces, including four vehicles and a completely working drawbridge, this is one of our favorite sets yet. The final set is gigantic, measuring over 40 inches long from start to finish. Needless to say, it might be a bit difficult to find space for this bridge among your collection once you’re complete. One note for those looking for something to do with the kids: these Expert sets don’t come with numbered bags, since part of the challenge of Lego sets is building it into a gigantic, puzzle-like kit. But if you can get over the hump of working without numbered bags, you’ll really enjoy assembling Tower Bridge. We’d love to see Lego branch out and do some additional work on London-themed sets, to build a miniature Lego London. Get on it, Lego!
Why? Are you kidding? Just look how cool it looks, I couldn’t but buy it. Also it has IR remote control, two L Motors and one of the new servo motors ( no more rubber bands on the steering ). Read my review of this fantastic set here.
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.

Batman is given a wide range of vehicles, their appearances resembling their accepted forms. Several vehicles, including the “Batman Dragster”, “Batman’s Buggy”, and “Bat-Tank”, have also been introduced. The Batmobile appears similar to the way it does in the 1989 film, while the Batboat takes on a hovercraft-like form. All the set-boxes feature a comic strip by artist Greg Hyland at the back, featuring stylized versions of the set in action.
The Town Hall is the largest and most imposing of the Lego Modular buildings. Towering over your brick city. The front is gorgeous with clever pillars and steps. Even the doors are a fantastic build. It is also a distinct and rare color, hard to find from any other set. The minifig she form a story of a Wedding, presided over by the mayor.
Just like with Lego’s Architecture set outlined above, the Creator Expert kits are a series of Lego sets that sets their sights on recreating cars and other real-world items inside of a Lego universe, complete with the same amount of care, quality, and technical specification we’ve seen from other Lego sets. If you’re more of a car enthusiast than a history nerd, you’ll want to check out Lego’s line of vehicles within their Creator Expert series. There are plenty of choices here to choose from, but one of our favorites just so happens to match a classic Italian sports car, the Ferrari F40. This is a set designed to catch your eye and hold it, especially if you’re a fan of European vehicles. Lego’s built car sets before, but none of them have been quite as well-built or cleanly-constructed as what you’ll find in the Creator Expert Ferrari F40 kit. Let’s take a look.
I got this for my son last Christmas, the box was missing two of pieces, but the Lego customer service took care of it very quickly for me. He absolutely loved this gift! I would recommend this to anyone who has a lego fan in their house. It also comes with a second set of instructions so you can make a mac-truck after you make the 4×4 crawler!
This is a set to be coveted and one customer wrote, “The construction itself was not difficult (I am an adult), and the pieces in it are amazing. The jester heads and gold pieces alone make this set really fun. Add the power functions (this was my first power function set) and the music and it is unbelievable! The set is built so that when you turn on the motor and the carousel spins, the music will start by itself.”
