Modular Building Revamp!

EmkEmk New ZealandMember Posts: 21

Hi again :) 
recently I can't help but think that the modular series is still severely lacking in several fundamental 'town' buildings. The series is beautifully designed, but I can't help but get frustrated at the slow-release of these sets! 
What would you like to see next? Any ideas of what modular may be released in 2016?
Personally, I would love to see a Library, Post Office, Museum, Elementary School and a Hospital! At some point more town houses would be good and having a modular train station or tramway that connects the sets would be wonderful too :) check out some of the incredible custom builds that match the same train of thought...

Which alternatives do you like?! The really large Custom with a small park in the corner would be great without the road as a school! and the apartment made of 'weatherboard' would be a material look never used in modulars before :)

    No, unfortunately they're not my creativity :( they're wonderful though aren't they?! I've built the post office one and its a fantastic addition should lego choose to adapt it! :)

    I am really hoping for a detailed train station.

    Most definitely! Here in New Zealand we have this beautiful old train station that I think would be the most PERFECT model for a lego modular!

    Grand Central in NYC would be my preference... (on a much smaller scale, of course...)

    Or the former terminal in Cincinnati... (on a much, much smaller scale)

    A train station designed to fit with modulars would need a different footprint than the standard 32x32. Otherwise all your trains are stuck behind a row of buildings and there isn't much of a platform.

    ^Agreed - my assumption is that the track would off of the standard baseplate.
     (Although if the track ran through the baseplate, they could probably get me to buy two or three to combine together...)

    Ah, logistics...
