10232 Palace Cinema

    the outside look of the wall of this cinema is a little bit too plain, just like that of Town Hall.

    I guess it is a twist of style of building. This discontinuity is evident between 10182/10185 and 10224/10232.

    Personally I prefer the former, which is more sophisticated/layered.

    I think if a mod here thought it wasn't real they wouldn't have posted it on the front page! and you should know that the info that I post is always genuine by now!

    Not questioning you, just the source of the picture. If it came from the lego servers (as indicated on the front page) then I guess there is no doubting how genuine it is.

    I look forward to seeing it in person, hopefully it won't be too long. Still need to purchase the town hall before this one though!

    I'm thinking this will almost assuredly need to be modded to be a 32x64 foot print - moving the screen to the far back wall at the end of the extension, and increasing the size of the interior for the auditorium and common areas/concessions

    You could go a full 64x64, especially if you want 2 screens, but I think the 32x64 will work just fine. On my definite to do list

    Great news another slippery slope.

    I tried to avoid the Modular series, looks like this fight is over.

    Anyone else think it's odd for a movie theater to have so many windows?

    No!

    Using a dollar to pound website, if the building is 149 dollars it will be £92, that is if the price is true

    You can't do a straight conversion. LEGO is always cheapest in the U.S. - dirt cheap transpiration costs, 0% import duties, low taxes, etc.

    Price is prob $149/€149/£119ish. Though wouldn't be shocked to see a $10 bump.

    Just as I thought this set looks amazing. Only negative that comes to mind immediately is the lack of ticket booth which is a staple of cinemas like this. We happen to have a corner cinema in my city and it has a ticket booth out in front, but oh well. It must be a Lego conspiracy to design sets that you want/need two of. I will need two Horizon Express' to make a complete train and now two Cinemas to make it truly a palace :-) Can't wait.

    £119 isn't that bad still is it? Still will buy it though
  • Gavin83Gavin83 Member Posts: 251
    I think your being generous with the UK price. If it's $149 I'd expect it to be £130-£140. I wouldn't be surprised if the US price gets an increase as well though.

    Ouch, I've never spent more then £120 on LEGO before, I'll get the Imperial shuttle before this though

    Since the modular line is mainly aimed for AFOL, I would assume those movie posters are PRINTED, just like the flat tile 1x4 pieces the GG got. My guess on the matter though, not official.

    Brilliant. I'll be needing at least two of them. My poor wallet.... :)
  • vader34mtvader34mt Member Posts: 88
    as i said prior to the release of the image...my biggest question is can the letters on the front be rearranged to make any movie that you want playing there?

    imagine "Star Wars" or "Avengers" on the sign with all the minifigs from those themes outside the building
  • DiggydoesDiggydoes Cologne/GermanyMember Posts: 1,079
    ^maybe the posters are printet on window glas, just like the chinese/dragon-style printed window glasses in the new ninjago "temple of light"! At least this example showed that it´s possible to print on window glasses!
  • fy222fy222 Member Posts: 182
    not a good analogy. that 1X4 tile in GG has been used in Viking sets before, so there is no extra cost for TLG to have it printed. Whereas here, has these tiles also part of any other sets or future sets?

    chances are...

    we can only hope TLG stick to their principles!

    ^ Yes, but the clock and shield in #10225 Town Hall are unique prints.

    LOVE it!!!!
  • fy222fy222 Member Posts: 182
    ^yes, now you have a good example =)

    shield and clock pieces are unique in this case, but they are highly likely to be used in other sets as shield and clock. After all, every room can have a clock, and all those warriors might need a shield.

    what about the movie poster piece? is there any other scenario other than cinema you need a poster? Not many, I'm afraid.

    also bear in mind, the more colours in the print, the more expensive it is for TLG to make these pieces. I also wish there will be no stickers for this modular building line ever.

    The shield is Denmark's crest so LEGO would have to make a Danish army which is highly unlikely.

    Any guesses on the piece count ?

    that's interesting! do you have the source?

    The printing on the shield is actually Billund's crest but close enough. :-)

    Please TLG, if you haven't already sorted out the printing side of this set, please do so before March. Please?
  • fy222fy222 Member Posts: 182
    ^remind me of the 1932 in FB, always full of surprises =)

    ^ Urm, was going to let that one slide but I'm going to bed now and so will just put you out of your misery. :-) 1932 is the year The LEGO Group was founded.

    1932 was the year the plastic brick was introduced, 1891 was the year TLG was founded back when they were producing wooden toys.

    Eh? 1981 was the year Ole Kirk Christiansen was Born 1932 was when Lego was founded and it wasn't until shortly after WWII that lego bought a plastic milling machine!

    The letters seem too small for that. But I reckon you could probably replace the sign with some snot, then use letters from the business card set to do short film names such as STAR WARS.

    You can tell that the two bottom sides of the building are different. We have the side with the posters and the other side may be a ticket booth.

    The door is open so you can get a quick glimpse of the inside. Seems to be a counter with a green cup or spout.

    The front sign looks like it has some type of clear plastic material over it with the letters underneath. I'm hoping the letters are on a large printed tile.

    Looking at the sidewalk, I think I see a dark red star on tan tile. Look by the lady in red.

    Final note, I think I see the back of the movie screen in the third vertical window from the left.

    Thank you so much for sharing this. I've been eagerly awaiting a first glimpse of this set.

    That lady in red looks like the exact same minifigure from the Pet Shop...

    Still, pending a look at the interior, this may knock Fire Brigade out of the top spot on my modular list. I also like how the vertical sign appears to be thick enough to avoid repeating the Café Corner debacle of the text being inverted on the back side.

    ^^ They must have a bazillion of those presentation boxes if they can't sell them all at 50% by "the future". Is the Naboo Starfighter set still available in the future too?

    Awesome! 2196 pieces...small theater room though....
  • rocaorocao Administrator Posts: 4,290
    Yes, very small. I guess they figured a large theater just wouldn't fit or provide enough points of interest, so they went a completely different direction with vintage and tiny.
  • BastaBasta Australia Member Posts: 1,259
    I like it, lots of little details. Not much they can do with the internal size (Number of Theatre Seats etc.) if they are to keep it on a standard base plate.

    Everything must cost a lot in Lego Land, I only ever see 100 notes :P
