least interesting: GE
Most interesting: PS
FB is in the middle, FB but has some tedious/repetitive aspects to it, so if you don't like that, maybe do it first.
It's weird looking at the box and trying to work out how big they'll actually be. You really can't tell until you begin.
I have to say starting every build I fell into procrastination but once the 1st floor was build on all of them I was totally entralled. This goes for all of them. I had a sense of "wow - this is going to look sweet once it's done" and just launched into the rest of the build.
The 2nd floor on the GE, I agree with a few but it does look spectacular once built as the 3rd floor is similiar. Buy yes that roofline makes it and I got "warm-fuzzies" and still get them looking at it.
With the FB and PS they were in a league of their own.
FB had a nice interior but the PS was just technical but they all have their own positives which you will discover as you build.
In all Mods I got the feeling "when will it end" and I can be impatient but when you finish and stand back in awe (especially when you put them together) makes it all worthwhile :D
They all look fantastic together and compliment each other.
It's then you think.... should I break them all down and enjoy the build again :D
It's not like model planes etc - glue won't hold you back :D
Build as you desire - pull names out of a hat - draw straws ... but just build!!
I can't wait to get PS and TH to complete the (current) crop of modulars.
Looking at the images of PS on brickset, however, it really doesn't look like that much of an interesting build. What is it that people enjoy so much about it?
One of the positives about PS is that you get 2 different styles in 1 set, such as the roofing and outdoor patio. The building technique is more ingenious to make do with half the width and still accommodate the stairs, rooms and fixtures. And notice the difference in windows and how they are made, very subtle but smart.
Thanks for the advice. I do love the look of GE but I'm not much of a fan of reptetitive builds - so I think I'll go with FB, especially as it's the cheapest out of the 3. I knew it was due to EOL soon, do either of you have any idea how long PS/GE are due to stay on for?
After some research on FB, I really enjoy the detail too. The pingpong table, the refrigerator, everything. It also has quite a charm to it with the 1930's sign and the old-style engine.
Do the modulars fit together in any order, or are they designed to line up in a particular order? Looking at the footpath of each building got me wondering whether there is any pattern between them when aligned, that would look out of sync if rearranged.
Mostly wondering because I'd like to get a modular or two - but I probably wouldn't be getting one every year, so there would be a couple of gaps. So if I skipped, say, the Pet Shop and went with Town Hall would it slot in seamlessly? I'd be content with having two corner buildings (when another one is eventually released) and a couple in between.
