All red guitar
White Nexo shield
All white chicken
Silver ice cream
Printed food tiles (Homer's doughnut is back)
And, hoping the 2x2s with pics on are printed.
I like it, might be my first ever Lego store purchase.
As some others have stated, I really like the change to the multiple buildings in one modular, like DO and BB. It makes a street layout look less blank and less boring!
Now I think I'm going to have to pass on the Disney Castle (for now...)
Also a plain red guitar with dimensions BTTF Marty. I can wait though, I have no choice.
Other than missing a helicopter...
looool. dat mustachio dude!
Either way, I never put any weight in any rumor.
(You can see the small gaps between layers in your video)
To me though this looks like an interesting street scene and I could see it appealing to people to get an instant modular "hit" without having to agonise over which of the available modulars to build a street with, or which of the retired ones to struggle to buy from the aftermarket.
This looks like it could be the gateway modular to lead to full-blown modular addiction.
but i find that Pet shop is a good set for anyone who is starting out in MOC-ing with an official lego set for the 1st time.
it's easy to MOC and let them get a feel for how to go about changing a official build in to a MOC of there own.
and that is what the Modulars started out as. all you have to do is look at the Instructions for the CC on the last page's to see that buying more then 1 of each Modular was expected.
that is why i hope to see pet shop to be sold for a good number of years to come.
it should be renamed to "Modulars Starter Set: the Pet Shop."
Did you say Cinnabon-flavored edible Lego?!?! It must be true, I just wrote it on the Internet.
From the official photos, there are quite a few new parts introduced in this set, though nothing that can't be approximated with existing bricks. :-)
When I first saw DO, i was sure it could be detached like Pet Shop.
For BB, the laundry shop seems like a forced add-on just to avoid a full corner bank. I'll prefer the bank to be a full building and the laundry shop a standalone half-Modular.
No guessing what my mods will be. :-D
I'm going to need another shelf...
As I slowly get fed up of more and more Star Wars rehashes I am starting to feel like these will replace that hole. It looks great especially when view from the front and I like the fact that it is all set at different depths, a Victorian house modular would also do this (hint hint lego).
Now to go back and pick up the ones I missed. They wont be too expensive...
You can either alternate the single-stud snots facing the two sides (as done on the Tardis in Dr Who) or use corner panels to accommodate the extra studs (as done in the Firehouse Headquaters).
I will be purchasing this. Sure, I wish the price was a little cheaper, but that's a lot of new parts. Compared to say, #10240 the price on this is just fine. I do worry about how others may perceive it though. It essentially looks like 3 half buildings, which would price it closer to $225 than $280 just by glancing at it. I do think all the details and new parts justify the higher price, but will others feel the same?
