Modular Buildings

MarcusMythMarcusMyth Glasgow, UKMember Posts: 4
Hi, 

Apologies if this isn't the correct forum. 

I'm collecting the modular buildings - I have everything after the Palace Cinema (everything before is out of print), as well as a couple of Ninjago sets that fit dimensionally.

I was considering also collecting the mini-modulars. Based on Wikipedia (I know), I could see the mini-modular set (10230) as well as 8 'bricktober' sets, meaning this wouldn't be a huge undertaking.

However, on this site, there's many more 'mini' sets marked as mini modulars. Would I be correct therefore in thinking there are way more than 8 official mini modular buildings in addition to 10230? If so, is there an easy way to see a list of these?

Thanks in advance.

    So this concerns mini modulars, not the Creator Expert sets called modulars.

    As far as I’m aware, there isn’t really a list of “official” mini modulars, it’s just a category AFOLs made up for micro-scale buildings. I could be wrong though, and someone will probably educate me shortly :)

    Ah that would make sense re: not being official.

    Maybe I'll limit my collection to the creator expert modulars.

    I've never really understood this mindset. Why don't people just buy what they like and leave what they don't, irrespective of official designations?

    @MarcusMyth ; To actually try to answer your question. You have obviously seen the mini modular tag in the item description. You can click on the tag and it will take you to the page where all of the sets with that tag are listed. There are in my opinion, many sets with that tag that don't belong there. You will have to decide in your mind what is a mini modular and what isn't since that definition is kind of subjective. To me, the only sets that belong in that group is the #10230 and maybe the Bricktober sets. The others don't meet my definition of a mini modular.   

       Let the tomato throwing begin.

    ^ This. You kind of need to make your own decisions as to what counts as a Mini Modular, as odd as that sounds. There's even a little of the same controversy with regular Modulars - is Market Street a Modular?

    And the mini-modulars set is a slightly different 'scale' than the Bricktober sets.  They are not a seamless 'set'.

    But I agree with @oldtodd33, there's not an official mini-modulars list.

    It's also important to note that the Brickset Tags are meant to be expensive, rather than restrictive.  If someone is interested in mini-buildings and clicks on the tag - finding other similar sets makes the the database more responsive.

    The database isn't for hyper-technical collector definitions of sets, themes and minute distinctions.

    Expensive, or expansive? 🤔

    Yes, expansive.  I love you, aggressive auto-correct!

    (And Market Street is a modular, even though we all hate it.)

    Well, the Modulars are expensive as well.

    Well, that was short-lived, didn't know editing the post will also increase the post count? 

    Anyway can look forward to 999, which represents longevity. :D

    Don't mind me, now back to the thread topic.

    If you wait until 1111, that represents 15.

    But does it include those who are non-binary?

    @SumoLego...that's the best you could do?  That's an "F" in my book.  ;)

    1000000010000100 'likes' can't be wrong.

    Don't worry, I've marked this thread for later. 3 years from now, when Sumo is at home counting his daily likes, he won't be able to account for one of them. And then I will have won!
