Mini-Modular Set



  • legoDadlegoDad Member Posts: 529
    Snagged one for $65 (used some Vip points knock it down) even though $80 is great for 1300+ pieces.
    Fan of mini builds so this should be a fun kit for me to tackle...also looks to be a nice display model. Can't wait to build this puppy!

    just tried to download the instructions for this set but only book 2 is available(and I want book 1). I have let Lego CS know.

    I am never a fan of modular. Mainly because I started late and the corner is getting too expensive. And I won't let others to take profit on me when buying the missing building. So the mini-modular is a welcome relief for me. I can now buy one full set of modular building, albeit missing pet-shop and town hall. I hope some forumers here are right that TLG will be selling the mini pet shop and mini town hall in the future. $80 is expensive? I noticed that Bricklink is selling at $100 and above now.

    ...I won't let others to take profit on me when buying the missing building....
    You do realize that Lego is taking profit on your purchase. They're not selling sets for the cost of production either.

    Personally, I'm split on this particular model. In a sense I like it and have created buildings on a similar scale (though they were completely original designs) but on the other hand it just seems redundant. Perhaps if it's to scale with the Tower bridge I'd get it. I'm not sure it is the same scale though. Anyone care to chime in on whether not it is?

    ^ I am not around them at the moment, but I would say that Tower Bridge is a larger scale than the mini modulars.
    The mini X-Wing from the Advent Calendar though..... that may be a different matter :)

    How much value is there in VIP exclusive sets, or do you regard them as similar to ordinary sets?

    Topically, I bought Mini Modulars 10230 a month ago, which is marketed as a VIP exclusive set. However, I feel a bit cheated now, as it turns out that it's not exclusive to VIP members at all! Even a guest user without a LEGO account can buy it from the LEGO shop online (it's not particularly obvious how, but it's possible). I've pointed this out to LEGO a few times over the past month, but it doesn't look like they're too bothered about fixing it in a hurry. (I won't mention here how non-VIPs can buy the Mini Modulars, as that would probably devalue the set somewhat). Hopefully LEGO will fix it soon, but it does annoy me that one of the selling points of this set is that it is a VIP exclusive, when in fact anyone can buy it.

    As anyone who can buy lego online can become a vip, hence its not very exclusive, does it really matter?
