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!
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 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:

It was also stated that LEGO is planning to release more Modular sets in the future. There’s no mentioning of which sets will be coming but for now, at least we don’t have to resort to BrickLinking parts to recreate them. Check out the full press release below as well as an image of the sets.
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.

@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.
I would suggest that if anyone here likes the modular buildings that they buy them before they become discontinued and reach ridiculous prices as we see with the first 3 sets. I would go on to even recommend that you not only buy 1, but buy 3. One for yourself, and sell the 2 sets for the other people like yourself who decided that they didn’t want to go into this theme, but then caved in.
Launch Command was released in 1995 as a Lego Town subtheme. It was the first dedicated Lego theme that attempted to depict real-life contemporary efforts of space exploration. Prior to the theme’s official launch in 1995, two sets were released in preceding years that are considered predecessors to the theme. Space Shuttle Launch, released in 1990, featured NASA logo, unlike subsequent releases. Shuttle Launching Crew, released in 1992, featured the characteristic “V” pattern seen on Launch Command sets released in 1995. The two shuttles released in 1995 were in fact labeled “2” and “3”, leading one to believe that shuttle 1 was contained in 6346 Shuttle Launching Crew.
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.
Pet Shop (set number 10218), released in May 2011, is the sixth set in the Modular Buildings series. The set contains 2032 pieces, was priced at MSRP US$149/149€, and is recommended for builders 16 years of age or older. It is the first set in the series that is actually made out of two buildings that separate using the same Technic pins that link the rest of the modulars together. They can be reversed or separated and wrapped around another building. The brown building is a Brownstone style town house with elevated ground floor (atop a crawl-space below); and the sand blue building is the Pet Shop. The brown building is the only building, with the exception of Market Street, that has a basement. There is a special feature on the Pet Shop on the ground floor, where the staircase can be folded away for more access room for playing (this was an issue with Market Street). There are 4 minifigures, 2 parrots, one dog, one cat, and a fish tank with goldfish. The set also includes 3 dog bones, a ball, a frog toy, a birdhouse, a bucket and a brush. Until the Brick Bank, this was also the shortest set by height and stands at just over 25 cm. The next tallest modular is Market Street at 33 cm. The set includes a full interior including a toilet, bed, kitchen and fireplace.
IMO… the entire line is overpriced… and not because of the price-to-parts ratio… but because when TLG switched to the minifig scale back in the late 1970s, they didn’t have this type of set in mind. I grew up with the Town Plan scale (1 door = 3 bricks tall), and the minifig scale (1 door= 5 or 6 bricks tall) caused a fourfold price increase in LEGO sets with 4 walls.
Designed with builders of all ages in mind, this collection of LEGO® bricks in 35 different colors will encourage open-ended building play, and inspire any imagination. Windows, eyes, and lots and lots of wheels add to the fun and offer endless possibilities for…
