Mini Modular: would it look good being a part of a city layout

As I am a big fan of the City theme, and I have 2 Modular buildings mainly GE and FB and soon will get PS, I was wondering would it look good to add the mini modular set in a city layout with other buildings and houses?

    I am a City fan too, but I doubt it will look good unless your City is micro-scale too. It will look too out of place. The real modulars are just spectacular and I don't see the point of having the minis, while you could have the real thing.

    Nope. Personally I dont see the point of this set unless you like micro building.
    I can imagine it might go with

    If you're asking whether the mini modulars will look good in a city layout with other micro scale buildings then I don't see why not. If however you're asking whether the mini modulars will look good in a city layout with standard minifig scale buildings and full size modulars then you might want to exercise some common sense before starting a new thread with such a question.....!

    @Coolsplash, the Mini Modulars are very small. I just wrote a post about them, and about half-way down you will see a video with the Mini Modulars next to the regular Modular sets. See here:

    I do see some uses for the Mini Modulars in a regular City setting. For example they would be excellent for a forced-perspective set-up, or as playhouses for minifig children, or as set-ups in a minifig theme-park. I'm sure there would be other uses as well. Your imagination is the only limit...(c;

    ^ Yeah - maybe they'd work if you're including LEGOLAND in your City layout....

    actually they might look OK next to some of the architecture sets perhaps.
  • CoolsplashCoolsplash Member Posts: 935
    @Si that I do agree with as well. As the architecture sets are all micro scale.
    Its just I have a great idea to create a scene from movie and in that micro scale buildings would look good.

    As for the price, yep it is expensive on a price per piece factor and I would consider twice before buying this. But you never know.

    @akunthita, thanks for the link and now I have a clearer picture of how this Mini Modular would look in front of the Modular buildings.

    ^ Given the right camera shot you might be able to pull off having the mini modulars alongside their larger cousins, giving the illusion of perspective/depth.

    Edit: Doh! Just saw @akunthita said the same thing.

    @sidersdd, thanks for the advice and you got what I was thinking :)

    i have a feeling these sets will bomb.. I dont see the appeal for 90 dollars..
