    Modular buildings sets not in the original list:
    PC - Palace Cinema #10232
    PR - Parisian Restaurant #10243
    DO - Detective’s Office #10246
    BB - Brick Bank #10251
    AS - Assembly Square #10255
    DD - Downtown Diner #10260
    CG - Corner Garage #10264
    BS - Bookshop #10270
    PS - Police Station #10278

    I’ve just realized, Bookshop is the only one-word modular set name :)

    Hm, the police station has the same initials as the pet shop. That’s gonna be confusing.

    Good point. I guess we’ll have to fall back on context :)

    Great topic! As an AFOL I'd just like to add my ex-wife is an AFUL:
    Adult Failing to Understand LEGO...
    (You know I'd love to add a 'W' in there but that would be inappropriate.)

    An alternative would be 'AFUFOL'

    I may seem an odd one to make this observation, but despite the hilarity (no sarcasm), I feel like the jokes may be making this thread less useful to people who actually need it.

    @Astrobricks - the purpose of this thread is the MAIN LIST which is maintained in the first post, not the follow-on commentary.  All of our subsequent comments either feed that list, are for entertainment purposes or both.

    Thanks for clarifying. TBH, I hadn’t noticed the first post was being updated. Maybe it could include a “Last edited” date.

    Also, I notice MilF for #75192 has not been added. While sounding very jokey, it is often used.
  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,866
    I...I just don’t think I can add that. :o)

    If you can’t handle MilF, then #75192 should at least be added after MF (which we all know couldn’t possibly be mistaken for anything unsavory ;-)

    If you look at the sets list started, you’ll note that time has passed and many have long since faded from the lexicon.  As such, I’m not sure there’s much value in trying to keep that list going.  RI? QAR? These days, we mostly leverage the set numbers when referencing any particular product.

    Sigh. Why do I try?

    And it makes sense too. If someone says the MF or the MilF, what are they referring to? Is one the #10179 and the other #75192, or are they both MFs or MilFs. Using the set numbers makes more sense in this case now.

    The same with the Pet Shop / Police Station.

  • YellowcastleYellowcastle Member, Administrator, Moderator Posts: 4,866
    ^ Thats what I was thinking too.

    @Astrobricks - I wouldn’t distress.  Your posts promoted a likely long overdue update in the main list so thank you very much.  I just don’t think there’s much value codifying every PS, etc.

    The list in the original post is rather helpful honestly. It's the kind of thing I wanted/searched for back in the day as a newbie (and occasionally go back to when I can't figure out what someone is referring to.) The problem with lists like this is they are often created and never updated again.  At some point they are so stale they become un-useful.  So if someone is willing to update this list, at least occasionally, then awesome.
