    I only bought my wife the Diner modular... and now I'm tempted by this one. I just have to remind myself that I have no room for big sets... heck, I don't think I even have enough room for the unbuilt sets I have now.

    Man, some of the detail work on that facade is so cool. Very simple pieces that create something elegant and understated.

    Can someone please buy me a (real-life) house so I can have the space to display Modulars? I have two, and that's basically the limit of what I will ever be able to display, I suspect.

    Trust me, even with a house you'll end up having display limitations.

    Unless of course you display stuff like this throughout the entire thing instead of furniture.

    Clearly, the best solution is furniture that doubles as displays.

    I’m very soon to purchase and install some shelves for my corner of the basement for the express purpose of displaying LEGO. It’s going to be so many shelves, y’all!

    That new modular is weird as heck. Inverted corner is a good new addition.

    It almost feels like they've started a new city with Downtown Diner, now we're in 50's USA and they don't connect to the older city that went up to Assembly Square.

    Oh brilliant

    Well the Ninjago work with the modulars as well so I wonder if there will be more of those

    I'm expecting at least one more. It blows my mind that they made the docks able to work on both sides with the cobblestone walkways, but at the same time it is fairly obvious how it is supposed to connect up. So I want one for the other side. :)

    My mother is in her 70s and throughout her whole life she has had a fascination with carousels.

    Would it be strange for me to build the Lego Carousel set (https://shop.lego.com/en-US/Carousel-10257) and add lighting and power (https://www.brickloot.com/products/led-lighting-kit-for-lego-carousel-10257) and give it to her for her birthday?

    Would that be weird?

    Tell me it would be weird.

    I understand that feeling, on the one hand, but on the other hand, part of the enjoyment of LEGO is putting them together, and it would be something that you and your mother could spend time doing together.

    I dunno, maybe get a smaller LEGO set or a puzzle or something and see if she wants to work on it together before the carousel. Test the waters?

    Hard to imagine a more tailor-made hell for me than building a complex lego set with someone else. Put that brick here. No, THAT brick. The red one. The other red one are you even listening. No no no, put it this way. TURNWISE.

    Doing a small simple one first is a great idea though.

  • DelduwathDelduwath Registered User regular
    For me, it's just that I'm selfish. I want to place every brick myself; it's like squeezing every drop of juice out of the set. If I have to share, I'd rather just abdicate and let them build the whole thing themselves.

    I imagine that I'll reverse positions on this the instant my kid gets old enough to be interested in Lego.

    Sure, but what if the person you're building with is a kid on the low end of that age scale?
    I suppose that might not be as bad as co-building with an adult though. I mean, if it's a nephew or something you can normally task them with sorting the bits out. The adult will almost certainly recognize that as busy work so you can do the fun bits.

    My wife loves sorting and locating the pieces in sets (which I hate) and I love snapping pieces together (which is painful for her because of a medical thing) so we make a great team building modulars.

    The best part was coming up with our own lexicon to describe weird pieces.

    That is basically what I do with my son. I sort while he builds and if he needs to make 2 of something I end up doing it

    My dad an I used to build lego sets that way. One would read the instructions, call out pieces needed, and build while the other person found the pieces. That was before each page had a "You need this many of these specific pieces" box.

    Cooperatively building it seems like a good idea, except:

    1) I don't think my mom would be terribly interested in the actual building process
    2) This is a really complicated set and would take a long time.
    3) I'd be adding to the complexity by adding a third-party light kit

    But I sometimes cooperatively build with my girlfriend or niece or nephew and have fun. I like that. Just I don't think my mom would be into it.

    One thing that gives me pause is that my mother's fascination with carousels is really a corollary to her love of horses. (We used to live on a farm with horses. Now that she's older she lives in the suburbs, so she collects Breyer horse figurines.)

    The Lego carousel is mostly... animals other than horses. A tiger, a frog, etc.

    I'd want to design and build an extra horse or two and replace some of the animals. To make it more... horsey.

    That seems daunting.

    I might be overthinking things.

    Those mini modulars from brickloot are quite interesting. I love the scale of mini-modulars (of course I love the look of the larger modular sets but I don't have the space or money to get the big ones), but I've never heard of brickloot before. The sets from them are legit legos, right, not some knockoffs like megablocks? They're not officially licensed sets, but they're fan-designed and made out of real lego bricks? I might have to jump on that bundle deal.

    Here's the top of my bookshelf at work (I'm a structural engineer so they're work appropriate :biggrin:) :

    xdpyc2xa0b9i.jpeg

    It's the White House, the New York skyline, the Mini Modular set they had a few years ago, and the two years of Bricktober sets from Toys R Us (RIP). Those brickloot sets would go perfectly with what I have up there (also the Diagon Alley mini modular set I got for free when I bought this year's Christmas set but haven't put together yet).

    Ya they will be front and center in the description as well if the product is using a non Lego brick. The kid that curates/started it is a real fanatic, even when non Lego bricks he aims for quality models. Very few Megabloks have ever been seen on Brickloot
