2020 Modular Rumors

stecubestecube ItalyMember Posts: 4
I know it's a bit early, but I'm just so impatient to know what it'll be.

The one thing we know, is it should be a straight building and not a corner.

Any rumors out there?

    Nope, but I'll predict a florist.

    Or a Post Office.

    Or a DIY store.

    Truth is, no-one outside of Lego knows.

    It's a bridal shoppe. Three floors of exquisite dresses and accessories for your blushing bride, all in subtle shades of pink and white!

    One of these times it has to be a police precinct so we can call it PP.

    There is some speculation that it is going to be another '50s style building to match the Diner and the Corner Garage, and will include an ice cream parlor. It's a reasonable idea that started circulating when the 50s style ice cream vendor showed up in the new #60234 City People Pack. Again, this is just a speculation at this point.

    Judging by my local high street, it's either a charity shop, takeaway or hairdressers (or vape shop as mentioned above).

    Actually, a hairdressers could be really interesting!  Lots of little details they could put in.  I would also love to see a bookstore, but that might be asking a little much :)

    An Ice Cream Shop doesn't sound too unlikely and the poo piece from the new series of Collectable Mini Figures could easily be used as ice cream.

    We already have two parts used as ice cream  - the scoops and the Mr Whippy style piece.

    So it must be a modular toilet block.

    I'd really like to see a museum at some point. Bunch of kids on school trip, brickbuilt Dino skeleton (we already know lego are good at those), some other 'through the ages' exhibits and some sciencey space stuff. Not sure if the current 32x32 footprint could do it justice, and how to avoid it being a giant (but decorative) block, but that's what lego designers are for.

    Ice cream parlour seems kind of similar to the 50s diner.

    Vape shop.
    I might’ve thought that for the winter village strip mall. Maybe the modular is the one then to include a payday loan, pawn shop, tat shop, and convenience store.

    I already said on leaks but I think either police station with 50s car would work great next to CG or another 'Detectives Office' style building with an ice creamery by which I mean multiple smaller buildings with various businesses. An optometrist is definitely something we need, perhaps the squinting face print included in that City Hospital set could be a clue.

    Id love a museum too, the problem is of course the size needed and also the theme; would it be a minifig (human) history based or natural history since to do both would mean that all exhibits would have be rather undetailed, while to do one would mean wed never get the other since Lego would never release two modular museums.

    Do we all think the next modular will be 50s Americana again or a return to traditional (both European and American just not Streamline Moderne) CG has allowed, I think, Lego to go either way although as I said, a police station in Classical architecture and 50s car would work really well, as would another shopping, multi-business modular with an ice creamery.

    Does anyone think a car dealership is possible or would that be too similar to the garage?
  • BumblepantsBumblepants Sofia BG/Dallas TXMember Posts: 5,779
    I think a car dealer would be too similar to the Corner Garage. It would also have both too many cars and not enough simultaneously.

    If they made just one car everyone would mock it for only having a single car. 

    The amount of parts used to make 2-3 cars would limit the building at least somewhat if not significantly.

    If they made 4+ cars it would be extrodinarily expensive.

    I don't see a winning formula there.

    If it was a car thief hideout/auto chop-shop masquerading as a car dealer then they would only need a couple of complete cars for show and the rest would be broken down into parts with good resale value!  Seems ideally suited for Lego...

    That would be a nice cross-theme building for Speed Champions.  Has a very Gone in 60 Seconds vibe to it...

    ^ I would like to see one in the future, with a large glass showroom, I reckon with a 1930s roadster for sale, and one other vehicle such as an Austin 7 (that could be a smaller build) or a 1940s car eg Wolsely so thats two cars in total and neither should take up too many pieces.

    Although Id love to have more then that, two would definitely be more then enough, although just on 'cars taking up pieces from the building', I dont recall any car dealerships that were overly ornate anyway, Id think just a simple art deco - streamline moderne combination.

    I must say the garage was quite disappointing in that respect, I can understand people not wanting vehicle overload on a 'regular' building, but for a building whose main function is vehicles, why would they not include a tow truck and one car?

    After all, if you dont have the diner or PC (and I doubt the '41 Buick could be towed anyway), then what is one supposed to do with the tow truck? Of course tow trucks also require maintenance, I mean, cmon, a garage whose only business is fixing its own tow truck and filling up a scooter???

    But lucky for those of you who dont want a car dealership, I very much doubt thats what 2020 modular will be.

    O btw, when I said future I meant 2021 modular to whatever, not a futuristic one!

    @Brickchap I do have a Renault Showroom modular MOC I built 5-6 years ago that is based on their Champs-Élysées storefront. It was a hybrid with the exterior based on historical photos and the interior based on modern. I just don't see Lego making one as a retail product is all. 
  • BrickchapBrickchap AustraliaMember Posts: 126
    @Bumblepants Id love to see a picture of that! Yes, sadly Lego will probably never do a car showroom/dealership.

    I do hope they continue to include old vehicles in modular buildings where possible.
  • wardmwardm BelgiumMember Posts: 551
    I recall the designer in one of those designer video’s from a couple years back hinting about a hotel. Does anyone remember with which modular this was? 
  • BrickchapBrickchap AustraliaMember Posts: 126

    ^ Downtown Diner Mike Psaki (forget correct spelling) said "We need a hotel!", although that may have been a joke in relation to Cafe Corner which of course had the hotel sign but no hotel. Sadly, for those wanting a 50s hotel next to CG, the hotel sign in CC was the kind of hotel that would work.

    So perhaps (as I would hope) later we will get a fancy expensive hotel (eg Savoy, Dorchester, Ritz etc.) although I very very much doubt any kind of hotel will be the 2020 modular.

    I mean, technically theres no reason why one couldnt have a hotel next to a garage but I highly doubt it.

    In the Corner Garage video they mentioned something about it being more on the outskirts of the city, which is one of the reasons Ive thought the next modular will be a police station.

    A three storey Greggs pasty shop, with exclusive 1x2 Cornish pasty tile. Maybe it’s because I haven’t been back to England for nearly a decade and I’m having crazy cravings for Greggs that’s influencing my modular desire, but that’s what I want.

    It’ll have a helipad on the roof for emergency helicopter pasty deliveries of course.

    Anyone seem to have a guess as to when we will find out what the next mod is?
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 727
    In 2017 we found out one of the last days of November. I think last year we found out early December (but I can't recall exactly). Lego seems to keep a pretty tight lid on their D2C sets, so I'd give it a couple more months.

    That's how we'd end up with a 1x3x2 left door in a new color without a matching right door.

    3 cars might be a good number of cars for lot, But an indoor showroom may need to be limited to 2, as they also have to make space in the build for them. There wouldn't be much to build for an outdoor lot and the cars can sit beside the base, leaving plenty of room for another related business.

    If they are going to keep this classic theme, now might be a good time to start a modular collection. I've been tempted by many sets, but never splurged on any. Not that I can actually afford to do that now.

    It'd be fun if it was a condemned building in disrepair. All of the modulars are all crisp and shiny, but every main street has a couple of boarded up spaces waiting for redevelopment.

    On downtown diner, replace some of the white with tan and replace a couple of the pink letters with dark bluish gray and you'll get the look you're going for.

    A post office or a newspaper office (with printing press) would be nice and could fit with the 50s theme quite nice.
