After reading about how people missed out on the first modular buildings, I am so happy I have all the sets in the line, including Market Street. For those people who have not purchased modular building yet, I strongly recommend buying Fire Brigade and Grand Emporium as soon as possible. Right now half of the modular building are available at RRP and as mentioned before are a good value considering the low price per piece ratio. When the sets retire, aftermarket prices are likely going to soar. The two sets are poised to retire. There is a reason these sets are in such high demand: they are very well designed.
Space Port was released four years after Launch Command and is often seen as a continuation of that theme due to its similar logo and status as a Lego Town Subtheme. Space Port took the Launch Command concept and expanded upon it into new areas such as astronaut training and scientific experiments. The Space Port theme took a slightly less realistic approach to set design compared to Launch command, and some sets featured special Light & Sound bricks to enhance playability.
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:
Here is a great Lego replacement piece. I bought the set #7783 at a rummage sale, but it was missing some pieces, so I am selling the sticker sheet by itself. Comes as shown, BRAND NEW, NEVER USED. I ship world wide. I accept paypal email with any questions I combine shipping on all orders!!
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.
The LEGO Architecture Skyline Collection opens a window to the most incredible cityscapes from around the globe. Choose between the heady heights of NYC, the neo-gothic grandeur of London, the show-stopping curves of Sydney, the romance of Venice, or the bold originality of Chicago.
Luke Skywalker, Han Solo, Darth Vader, and Princess Leia hold iconic status in the Star Wars universe. LEGO Star Wars minifigures allow movie fans to and play with their favorite characters….
Haha, lord Business’ basement is kinda what’s giving me the itch to get them. I have a large empty basement that has other hobby things such as RC planes and RC cars. I also have a model railroad, and although the scale would be off, I am wanting to build a city made of LEGO and run the train through it. My son would absolutely love that.
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.
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.
As to Green Grocer, Cafe Corner and Market Street, I missed those as I honestly didn’t care… and Cafe Corner would or could be the only one I’d regret and pine for some days. Such is life. I do have other themes I’m “gunning” for to collect and I’ll be looking to see what I can afford in the long term.
Ok, so let’s say you just found out about the Lego modular buildings and want to create a really large, super cool Lego town, but the retired Lego modulars are out of your budget – what do you do? Combine multiple sets to create even bigger buildings! The first time I saw this idea was when someone built a second “middle floor” for the Café Corner to make it taller. I thought it was such a cool idea that I bought my own pieces and made an extra floor for my own Café Corner! However, the video below showing a Lego builder combining two identical sets into a single larger building is ever cooler! Plus, buying two retail sets today is still a lot cheaper than buying one retired set. So, what do you think of the idea?
