Inflation in Legoland is too strong!
Other than that, it is more or less what we expected and looks good.

Very pleased with this one, looks like it will be a fun build... can’t wait to order it.

By in United States,

I really like the design of the exterior, and the concepts, but am I the only one that feels like there’s a lot of space that’s been sacrificed? The inclusion of the driveway leaves only about 40-50% of that baseplate used for the actual structure. The inside feels a bit crammed, yet not very full. And another kitchenette?
I really want to love this more than I do, the garage looks fantastic! The dark orange and blue color scheme is very nice! I like it for what it is, but the $200 seems a bit inflated for what seems like a smaller building.

Very, very, nice indeed! :-)

i'm happy that it seems like this will fit in alongside the "older" modulars like the detectives office and bank. the diner was great but i allways felt like it was a bit too out of place.

Wow, like it so much, this is really the "Something different" we have asked for :)

So I was right about the corner modular release every three years!
-10182 Café Corner (2007)
-10211 Grand Emporium (2010)
-10232 Palace Cinema (2013)
-10251 Brick Bank (2016)

By in United States,

I like it! It seems to have reduced the number of interior details, especially as it pertains to the "story" they tried to tell in DO, BB, etc., and instead put the pieces into the structure itself. This set seems larger than AS and DD (in height). That's a good thing in my opinion.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@gabri_ves
Yes, they have made a pattern of doing this. It would eventually make a square, one corner for every two straight, street-facing buildings. However, this was thrown off by Assembly Square being 1.5 baseplates long.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Appears to be a misplaced rocker figure in the set detail page.

By in Canada,

What's the deal with no snakes at an animal hospital?

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@Aegis2000 this was exactly my reaction too. On seeing the exterior picture on the front page I was very excited it's a great looking building. However having now seen the interiors my excitement has been tempered some what.

The problem is not only the limit on size but also the 45 degree angles. This means you can fit even less into the small space than usual. It's put a real damper on the mini builds, I always love things like the drum set and dentists coach in Assembly Square that use a few elements really well to provide something both visually appealing and an interesting build. I can't see any of that ingenuity here and the TV in particular looks appalling.

It's such a shame as the idea behind the set is a wonderful and they seem so close to having pulled it off. The exterior is superb but the interior is just far to empty feeling, particularly the garage section, which are always cluttered with tools and machines. The £30 price hike for only 100 extra pieces seems a bit much as well.

Overall a mixed bag I hope it will wow me more in the flesh.

The vet, Dr Jones doesn't like snakes!!! ROFL

By in United Kingdom,

@shaase - Think about the name of the veterinarian!

Apologies for the misplaced rocker minifigure from 10260 Downtown Diner on the set details page. That image was provided as part of the press release but we will remove it shortly.

@shaase - No snakes in Dr Jones' office! It's an Indiana Jones joke!

I never knew I needed a LEGO window squeegee until now.

Looks weak compared to previous ones

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the 'no snakes' policy by a certain Dr. Jones might be a reference to good old Indy.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hi @shaase, it's a reference to Dr Indiana Jones, the famous archaeologist. He hated snakes almost as much as he hated Nazis.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I don't like it.... I'm. Sorry to say it but looks like a moc and not an official lego set.
There are loads of out of place coloured bricks on the front between the angles. It's lopsided and not centred and very basic in terms of architecture. But I like the use of train windscreens to make the bay windows.
It's the First modular I haven't liked and definitely down the list of sets I want to get.
Roller coaster for me this Xmas I think

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

The car fumes in the Vet’s office and especially in the apartment upstairs must be terrible! Having no interior doors doesn’t really improve living conditions. I like the exterior, but the interior could stand some more finishing.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

I'm with Ryzomc. Don't like this..at all. I thought Brick Bank was a bit meh already, but this is even worse. And too expensive as well. Just nothing to me to justifiy the price hike of 30 Euro.
Might even be the first Modular since I started collecting them that I won't get.
I'd much rather have had the beautiful leak of the Post Office MOC (Brick Square Post Office by Bricked1980 on Brickpicker) that was floating around a couple of months back. So much more beautiful and well designed on all levels, including the vehicle.

Gravatar
By in United States,

A little dissapointed with the price increase, but it looks cool. If I bought a modular building, though, it would be one of the smaller ones for the price difference.

Gravatar
By in Canada,

A corner garage? Woooooow...

I mean it's a perfectly valid building to be part of a city block, but it feels extremely uninspired.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Too-shay Austinpowers. I feel the modulars have taken a major hit since Jamie Berard got promoted and doesn't design them personally anymore.
I know other designers should do them but there just not as nice and complete

Gravatar
By in Austria,

100 pieces more than the Downtown Diner. 30€ price increase.
f*** right off!

Aesthetically, I think it's alright.

Gravatar
By in Sweden,

I must say I'm underwhelmed. Especially by the interior, I mean no door to the apartment and no wall between the stairs to the vet and the garage?

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Not sure about this one... I hope that it looks better in real life than on the images, which seem a bit mixed. Surprising though, as I heared rumours about a post office.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

Great! I do find the price increases lately (hello CLoud City, Vestas Windmill) worrysome!

Gravatar
By in Poland,

It’s a really nice color! But I guess it’s too much America in the last 2 years

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The price increase must be due to Brexit. Or should I say "Bricksit" :D

Gravatar
By in United Arab Emirates,

Awesome. Very good.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Nice in general but a definitive step down from the Parisian Restaurant, Detectives Office, and other predecessors. Not much thought seems to have gone into the details of the set, both inside and outside. The sparse garage, sad lounge chair on the roof, and lame looking signage really puts this one down a notch from older modulars that didn't have such incredible interior detail.

Still want this, but disappointed for sure.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Even thought I am.not buying I love it.

Gravatar
By in Germany,

The more I look at the pictures, the less I like it.
The interior is a mess. Like others have said, a largely open staircase from a garage right up to an apartment. How stupid is that?
And the apartment itself? The door to the toilet right behind the kitchenette? Yummy. Imagine that poor patron just having had a "major release" and then having to do something in the kitchen. Yuck.
Plus, the interior is so tiny, "thanks" to the small footprint of the actual building in relation to the baseplate size. Everything inside feels so unnecessarily cramped. No way am I going to get this.
Thumbs down TLG, after ruining almost every other theme they have now managed to ruin the Modulars as well.
Alas, more money saved for other endeavours.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I think the mistaken inclusion of the rock star with guitar in the press release is meant to imply that the rock star from DD lives over the vet's office.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Not meeting the high standards the line previously created with sets like Brick Bank and Parisian Restaurant, and definitely not for that price. But I'm happy there's more dark orange parts available.

Gravatar
By in France,

A bit underwhelmed really.
I like the idea. I like the ground floor.
But the 2 upper floors just look a bit bland/boring. We've (I ?) come to expect such amazing detail and architecture over the length of this series and I just feel this is not as good. A step back even.
Will wait to see it in the flesh.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anyone else notice the wand? Apparently wands will not be restricted to Harry Potter sets in the future.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

In the truck: do we get the double beveled 16 tooth gear back again in light bluish grey?

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Hm, I'm a teensy bit underwhelmed. It's by no means a bad set, but it looks just a little bit ... bland, I guess? Certainly not as thrilling as the Diner. I guess the subject matter does not really appeal to me; it's just not that exciting. Of course, I'lll buy it regardless, come Double Points; here's hoping for some innovative building techniques!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Will I get this? Yes, definitely

Do I like this? Yes, love it

Have they wasted space a little bit and hiked the price too much? Yes

Like others, I think it's a disappointing, and excessive IMO, hike in price. I think the idea is great, the vet, the old style garage (there is one looks similar near to me!), the figures and pieces, and it will go well with sets like the Fire Brigade and Pet Shop, but when you look at other corner models, it is a little smaller (although there is more inside content).

Overall, this is 4.5 out of 5 IMO, but only because of the price hike.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I kinda like it and will get it, but I'm not sure about the open stairwell all the way from street level to roof terrace, feels like the poor apartment dweller wouldn't have much privacy. (It'll be the vets apartment in my bookcase bound city) Unsure whether this works best as an external or internal corner.

@AustinPowers
Way to maintain a positive attitude!
While this may not match your taste, nothing is ruined. Life goes on!
Cheers!

By in United States,

The reason the rocker image got inadvertently included in the press package is that the set images in general include a bunch of the individual assets that were composited together to create the art for the back of the box. When you look there, the same image of the rocker appears superimposed against the tow truck pulling the convertible, which is in turn superimposed over the image of the previous three modular buildings connected together. Whoever was putting together the press kit apparently remembered to remove the picture of the convertible being towed, realizing that it didn't appear in this set, but accidentally forgot to remove the rocker minifigure.

We've seen similar stuff happen sometimes when a set's "additional images" include something seemingly useless like a close-up photo of a flick missile, which was originally taken so that it could be composited together with a photo of the main model on the box art itself to create a scene where the missile appears to be in mid-flight.

Anyway, this is a pretty amazing-looking set! I definitely don't agree with the people who feel like its quality is lacking. The price hike is a bit unfortunate, but at the same time, I still feel like the price is fairly reasonable relative to the size and piece count — just not as outstanding a value as we're used to. There are lots of delightfully creative building techniques here, from the angled corner-facing wall (a first for the modular buildings, which typically had far smaller angled walls), the 2x6x2 train windows as a new way to construct a bay window, the new tree construction, the retro TV set, the classic tow truck, etc. The cast of characters is also delightfully diverse, with a tasteful variety of men, women, and animals.

On a darkly humorous note, check out that one image with the girl standing on the chair pointing at the fish that's floating upside down in its tank! =O

Looking forward to adding this set to my family's modular street!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The dead fish in vets office is bit worrying...

Gravatar
By in Belgium,

I really have my doubts about this one.. It looks more like an office building than an apartment. The interior could have been better, and i'm not keen about the pricing over here :/

Gravatar
By in Germany,

Actually, scratch what I've written before. I hadn't seen pictures of the insides, but that price raise with that little going one inside?
That's just pure evil, man.

Gravatar
By in Jordan,

Looks very nice at first glance, but now that I've seen the price and pics of the cramped interior I must say I'm less than impressed. The fact that it's asymmetrical doesn't help either IMO. I do like the truck though.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Hmm, dunno about this one. The exterior is lovely but there's very little floor space inside and the interior seems very minimally furnished compared to recent offerings - reminds me of the much older modulars. It also seems very expensive for what you get.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Unless I'm mistaken, this is the fourth corner set in the series. Any more and you wouldn't be able to fit them all in one block! (Though you could probably still do one street)

Gravatar
By in Canada,

I like it...because it' a MOD's paradise!

I love the colours and overall design, though I'll probably remove the garage altogether and make it stand on its own elswewhere...

Gravatar
By in United States,

New scooter color - nice!

Gravatar
By in United States,

@ Raakhvau - perhaps the dead fish is referencing Finding Nemo when he was playing dead?

Gravatar
By in Australia,

The set looks ok, I was more amazed that there wasn't a single leak before the official announcement unlike last year, and I guess most years previous.

Gravatar
By in United States,

It’s beautiful

Gravatar
By in United States,

Did anyone notice the mechanism of the garage door? Looks like it rolls up around itself. Love it!

Different from the fire station sets where they go straight back

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

@MataNui2009 it's the fifth corner modular.

As for the price, it's gone up in all three markets, which makes me think they've finally adjusted the modulars for inflation - they've been around the same price (certainly in the UK) since Grand Emporium back in 2010.

In fact, Downtown Diner is cheaper in the UK than Grand Emporium was, despite having 300 more pieces, which makes me think they've kept the prices artificially low for a few years now.

Gravatar
By in Brazil,

I love the old school Octan logo

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Overpriced.
I'll be waiting for at least 30% off.
The Building could have been extended over the Petrol Pump on the 1st and 2nd floors to boost the size of the model, to make a proper corner building. Which might have justified the price hike?
The building is also off centre to the forecourt roof which makes the design seem niaive.

Not the modular I was hoping for.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The details on the facade and the building design in general remind me of a 3-in-1 Creator set. Not bad, but not filled with inspired parts usage and design the way other modular buildings have been. I think if it had been released back around the Town Hall era it would have seemed stellar, but after PR, DO and other recent modulars it does seem a bit of a let down.

I like all the sand blue windows, though, and I think it will be a good parts pack for MOCing, if not a great value. Like others have said, it makes X-mas shopping a little easier. But, I am not complaining, just giving my opinion on the design. Thankfully Lego has many awesome options that can be modified into a "modular"...maybe Joker Manor??

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm sure I'd have some little things I like or don't like about the actual build, but it's hard to get over the insane increase in price. At the very least, I'll be waiting a while to get it.

Gravatar
By in United States,

I really love this design, especially the attractive angled front.

However, as the parts increase is minimal and I believe some larger plates and bricks get taken away to accommodate the angled front, I simply cannot find myself justifying the $30 increase in price.

Gravatar
By in United States,

The price is definitely too high, also don't like the look of the 2nd and 3rd floors. Corner is still one of the main weakness of Lego.

Gravatar
By in Poland,

Ugly.

Gravatar
By in Norway,

I like it alot! A couple of these...in height...excellent! Anyone notified the slogan; "By accident we meet" hahaha... Can` t wait to get some copies!

Gravatar
By in United States,

What I love:
* I love the old-fashioned Octan logo on the gas pump.
* I love the fact that it being on a corner reduces the required footprint for cars to drive in and out of the gas station. Most LEGO gas stations in the past required two extra road plates (usually curved ones) to allow entrance and exit from the pumps. This one is much more topographically economical.
* I love that it's primarily dark orange. That should significantly bring down the price of 1x3 bricks in that color on Bricklink. I've been piecing out Town Hall and those bricks are like $1.00-$2.00 each!

What I'm meh about:
* The architectural style of the upper floor exteriors is a bit bland. I agree with the previous commenter who said it is reminiscent of a 3-in-1 Creator building. I do like the style of the first floor, though.

What I don't like:
* I agree with many of the previous commenters that the stairs from the 1st floor to the second floor need to be walled off.
* I don't like that the entrance to the garage is off to the side. I'm not sure how I'm going to align that with a T-junction road baseplate that I feel should be a proper driveway to the gas station. In all fairness, though, I don't see how they could have worked around this limitation. I imagine that I'll just build the driveway with tiles and have the cars go up on the curb.
* The price hike. I guess gas is getting more expensive these day and so too are gas stations.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The days when Octan was 4 Star Leaded: Super duper garage. Wait a minute 'Dah, nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, dude looks like a lady!!' Or is she lacking a chest? Maybe they are meant to be transgender? I don't know, what with the female mechanic and man baking it could be a stereotype role reversal of Disney proportions???

I appreciate people are not always keen on the extra levels designs as they are often secondary. A high garage ceiling with hoist and one apartment above would be cool too.

Gravatar
By in Netherlands,

I'd just like to say that although the LEGO Technic sets have been disappointing for quite some time now the modular buildings never disappoint!

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

I think its a bit dull - maybe I have been spoilt by previous modulars based on older styled architecture but this does not reflect the essence of the pinnacle of 50’s design to me. As someone else mentioned, it looks more 3 in 1 and I want to see the alt builds - especially if one is a robot.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@Librarian1976: Which is funny on the gas front, as the gas prices are plunging.....

Gravatar
By in United States,

I'm disappointed in this set. This was my opinion before reading any comments and it seems many others share my feelings. It's just very uninspiring compared to previous modulars. The only positive is that this will go at the end of my wish list. I'll eventually buy it but I just don't have any enthusiasm to get this set. I'm much more interested in the Fishing Shack (or whatever it's called) before it's retired. This set can wait a year.

And what is a "1x1 medium gray roof tile"? This is such a common piece. The "roof" part means something I'm not aware of.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

The question is; Who's ordering this on Jan 1st, and who can wait 6 months and buy from Smyths Toys when they have a 20% off event? I know I should wait... But I probs won't :/

Gravatar
By in Venezuela,

That scooter girl is, in my opinion, the coolest minifig one could possibly make from City parts.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Absolutely adored the Diner. This is....good. I'm definitely slightly disappointed. I'll get it eventually.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

First thoughts are that this is the second year running the new modular release has felt like a pass for me. Then when you notice the price increase to £160 - The wonderful Assembly Square (4002 pieces) is only £20 more than this Corner Garage (2569 pieces)... It seems like even worse value for money and I will not be buying a modular this coming year either.

Gravatar
By in United States,

@asherkobin: "Roof tile" is the official term LEGO uses for parts that AFOLs usually call "slopes". In this case they're referring to https://brickset.com/parts/design-35464, which is new for 2018, has never appeared in Medium Stone Grey before, and is used extensively in this set.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Too many goods sets, not enough money!

Gravatar
By in Canada,

As a mechanic, this set is absolutely a requirement for my city. Wish my shop was so tidy!

Gravatar
By in Germany,

@ericb!: why should I keep a positive attitude when this set has disappointed me that much. I have been waiting the whole year for the new Modular. For a start I was hoping they would not do another US design, but somehow I knew they would. Anyway, then the rumor surfaced that the Post Office - which turned out to be just a MOC - would be the next Modular. This was such a beautiful and well designed building in all aspects, that the now revealed official one looks so Meh by comparison. Add to that the insane price hike and you might be able to see why I have such a hard time maintaining a positive attitude.

LEGO in 2018 has - for me - been such a string of disappointments that the very few highlights pale by comparison. I usually try to maintain a positive attitude in all aspects of life, but with TLG I fail to see what should make me retain a positive attitude. Too many bad decisions, products, design fails, price extremes, to mention but a few reasons for being angry.

Gravatar
By in United States,

Anything on new HP sets yet? Was that just a one wave ordeal or...?

Gravatar
By in United States,

I like it. Sure there are complaints about the price but there are also those who complain about stickers and state they are willing to pay more for printed pieces. Can’t win!
I do like the garage and may use the clock piece to make a clock face pump.

Gravatar
By in United Kingdom,

Cookies! Is this somehow linked to the story in the Detective's Office?

The interior of the garage definately needs tiling, but how to show tyre tracks and oil spoils?

By in Germany,

Now everyone complains but we all know, this set will be in our living rooms soon...
