Modular buildings

Post by HRTTIM on Mon 09 Aug 2010, 3:07 pm

I have recently picked up the fire brigade modular building just wondering what I should get next? Green grocer or grand emporium?

I'd be leaning towards the Green Grocer as it's becoming more expensive and harder to find brand new in Australia.

I'm a bit biased towards purchasing Lego in Australia after I bought some Lego from the U.S which I felt cost me too much in freight, never again.

That's my way of thinking, anyway !

Cheers....Free Spirit

Green Grocer is older than Grand Emporium, so if you intend to get both get GG first, before it is no longer in production and the price skyrockets.

I bought all three recently (Fire Brigade, Green Grocer and Grand Emporium). If I was going for one I would have gone for the Green Grocer for the reasons stated above.

Cool building, I need to figure out where to have a permanent display of them all!!!

It's the one that started it all and was very successful. It doesn't have an interior, but has many rare coloured pieces, and is a good build. I don't like the combination of a blue ground floor and brown upper stories, but I think I'm the only one who has that view.

I don't think I'd pay the current prices though.

I don't think so, but I don't see a use for it in my layout. Others have layouts just for fairground equipment, so I'm sure they would find it attractive.

I have been browsing around some LEGO websites and have found out that a Pet Shop is the next instalment in the modular building series legohappy

Some photos of it would be nice because I would like to know what sort of colour scheme has been chosen for it and whether it is a corner or street store ???

Brickie.....I have got to agree with you and lets hope we see plenty of variations of the breeds of each animal and/or pets within the store !!!

The rumor is it will be two 16 wide buildings, one a pet store with a cat, dog and snake. One of the buildings will have a bit of sand blue. Some guy got a look at it in the back room of a New York LEGO shop apparently.

If that's the case that opens the door for you Brickie to build your very own version of those Fish Tanks lining the back walls legowink

Otherwise could we see a specialty store as a MOC on the horizon.....I wonder who would tackle that one legolaugh

I get the feeling your contemplating it for a future project down the track so lets hope some cool bricks arrive on the market to make it happen sooner rather than later !!!

I am sure a few of you have seen pictures of the new Pet Shop which has me in awe and excitement because I have a gut feeling LEGO are perhaps looking at designing an entire CBD.

Use your imagination and contemplate having 12 individual modulars connecting together as one set of buildings and then being the centre piece of your display !!!

I think I am on a winner this one legolaugh

...that is a lot of fish tanks. I keep guinea pigs in a custom cage, they have sleeping bags, a pigloo (small igloo shaped hut), a mini log cabin, wooden tunnels and a zebra print house with a chimney. I have considered making them a Lego house but they don't really have any house keeping abilities and at their discretion beds often turn into toilets. I'm not prepared to subject any of my Lego to the tyranny of guinea pig urine.

Thanks for the tips about the Green grocer, I recently discovered modular buildings and really like the Grand Emporium and Grocer.
