    If it's not a Lighthouse with a helicopter pad I won't be happy.

    It will definitely have stolen an idea from someone's MOC from mid-2021.

    Next one has to be a corner, right?

    I'd like to see some small trade businesses like a carpenter or an electrician turned into a modular.  The LEGO town has become decently diverse with a couple restaurants, some local municipalities, a garage, a cinema.  What about a plumbing company or a garbage collection?  It's a dirty job, but those guys make good money.  Or how about an electronics store or a musical instrument shop?

    With COVID, generational change, and the rise of Amazon, a lot of businesses will become extinct in the future.  Maybe LEGO should make a list of some businesses we might see disappear and sculpt it into modular form before they are gone for good. 

    (Actually, now that I think about it, they probably already thought ahead of me.  Bookstores are quickly becoming non-existent and even the car of the future may threaten garage shops)

    Like I said: combo Cafe Corner and Green Grocer.

    I’m just glad it isn’t going to be another fantasy set like Gingerbread and Elf Club House. Those don’t fit into my town at all! Wait... wrong thread!

    Seriously though: a hardware store would be a good choice. A giant brickbuilt hammer sign would be fun. Or maybe a hand saw.

    Bruce Wayne's penthouse apartment with a helipad, only it's not Bruce Wayne because these are non-licensed Modular Buildings.  But there IS a helicopter.

    Yeah I, and others, have been on the Hardware shop 'bandwagon' for about 3 years now. I think it makes sense as there are many tools and implements that you could fill the store with that LEGO already makes so they could keep new part design costs lower.

    Not sure of the main building but a small pawn shop as a side might be fun.  You can fill it with random items and will be a good way to hide Easter eggs from older sets.  Besides, these minifigures need a way to get quick cash to maintain their sugar high from those smuggled in cookies.

    Haven't you heard? After the worldwide riots due to the release of the Police Station, they eventually cancel the modular range in mid 2021.

    I bet it will be a hospital. Who knows when this virus might attack the minifigs and we need to be prepared for it with tests and empty beds in the nintensive health care section.

    Why are these threads titled "rumours"?  I have yet to see any rumors.  The correct titles should be "Speculations".

    From what I can tell, the only difference is if I indicate someone else is speculating - that's a rumor.

    I hear hospital thrown around a lot (likely because the staff are heroes right now) but I don’t think that can be squeezed into a modular - there’s too much going on. Waiting room, OR, ER, Maternity, NICU, Recovery, imaging, lab, cafeteria...In the end a 2 bed hospital would just leave us wanting more. Maybe an assembly square size could do it better, I just don’t think it’s likely. 

    But I could (And I want) to see a small family practice clinic (one doc, one nurse) on one floor with room to do a checkup and give immunizations and maybe a small old timey pharmacy on the ground floor (not a giant walgreens/CVS). Something with a 20s to 50s vibe.

    ^ Most modulars vastly simplify what is depicted inside due to very limited space.

    I’m hoping for a corner hospital with an old timey ambulance. I have been working in a hospital for about 25 years and would love to see one in modular form. 

    ER, x-ray and admitting station on main level 
    hospital rooms and nursing station on second level
    physical/occupational therapy room on third level

    Psych ward in the attic (at the hospital where my mom used to work, the psych wards were on the top floor).

    Could someone do me a favour and change the thread title from "2022 Modular rumours" to "2022 Modular speculation" please?  I think it better reflects the nature of the discussion.

    Thanks.

    Wait, (362 days to go!)? Does that mean that the mods know something? That the 2022 modular is revealed on 27-11-2021? Or that it gets released then?





    Probably not.

    And being modular, it could be attached to previous modular discussions.

    Here's an unpopular opinion (which maybe belongs in the "Unpopular opinions" thread):

    Market Street is the most "modular" of the modular buildings.

    It has multiple combinations built into the fundamental design, in terms of which orientation the roof goes, whether the building is the right or left half, and if my memory serves me correctly one of the suggestions is to use the upper level as an independent abode (I could be misremembering that one). The only thing "modular" about the Modulars is their ability to be arranged in a street or on a shelf in whatever order you want (which is a characteristic that basically is literally all Lego) and their ability to have that middle floor repeated ad infinitum (which is a characteristic that's unique).

    Personally I don't get the hate for it - it was very much a product of its time but for what it is it's a decent rendition of that style house. The only other sets to really be "modular" in the sense of actually having different modules that can be rearranged are the "modular" 3-in-1 sets like #31081 Modular Skate House - and those sets are milquetoast at best.

    Good points, but modular also refers to the ability to easily separate the floors from each other, and of course, sets like Pet Shop and Bookshop have easily separated buildings.
  • PaperballparkPaperballpark Near ManchesterMember Posts: 4,212
    And I believe it's still possible on all modulars to add additional middle floors if you want to.

    What the world needs is a combo hipster clothing emporium and mobile phone store.  Just because it doesn't fit the modular era shouldn't put anyone off...

    Surely it's the ultimate in hipster-ness if the clothing shop is in an era'd building!

    this would go nicely with the Chinese new year sets. Still pissed that the first 2 were only available in S-E Asia. That dinner set is awesome.

    It would go nicely along side the Palace cinema to create a mini China-town, given its similar roof tops.

    Not a modular. No technic pins, no white street lamps, etc. 😜

     I blame staircases, they consume so much space. LEGO should embrace the portal technology they introduced in LEGO Dimensions and just have minifigs teleport to the upper floors.
