    The modulars are just the city high street. It should legit be only commercial spaces.
    So why is there a house?

    Lots of high streets have random residential properties dotted around them.
    I agree that a hospital wouldn't make sense, as they're often distinct buildings. Although in inner city London they do often share a facade with other properties, but they wouldn't fit into the size a regular modular building is. 
    However, I don't think there's that much logic to it. The Lego designers just do what they think looks good!

    Correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that the last few modulars where build around a theme where we also got a collectible minifigure from. In one of the CMF-series, we got a waitress on rollerskates, from a typical diner. And we have the diner. We also had a vet (Corner Garage), baker (Assembly Square), boxer (Diner), a barista (Assembly Square),... Since there are rumours of it being a bookshop or library: perhaps the librarian from the CMF-series will be next to get a building?

    Brickmerge has just updated the placeholder on their site for the new modular, now naming it as "buchhandlung" - a bookstore.

    A book store sounds great is true.

    But I think the idea of a medical centre / clinic / general practice surgery would be a good one.

    Include a waiting room and reception/office, consulting room, minor surgery unit and a pharmacy. Could all fit nicely in to one building and they come in all ages and styles of building, so depending on of its purpose build, they could quite go to town in the design. 

    In my city some are modern, some 1960, style, some converted townhouses, even a one is in a converted church, which would be a way to get that style of architecture in without actually creating a church.

    Wonder if we get a bookstorw owner/employee or librarian that is similar to the one in cmf, which i havn’t gotten around to buying yet thinking it was in the more expensive range. Never before bought any minifigure for more than 4-5€/USD. But yesterday I ordered the Bumblebee-girl - wonder if its just downhill from here on...

    So, apparently the set number is #10270, but maybe that was already known?

    Oh, I see on EB both the set number and piece count (2504) were mentioned as early as August 21.

    Anytime we finish the lineup of D2Cs for a year the next one is always a modular so it's kind of common sense it'd be 10270

    As for it being a bookstore, they had 10267 listed as a Fairground Free Fall Tower for whatever reason and that turned out to be the Gingerbread House so I wouldn't exactly call them reliable.

    Series 10 is quite a stretch of time when looking for a modular clue.  Unless there is a Pizza Shop in the next CMF, I think this is a case of correlation, not causation.

    There has been some talk on this thread that buildings like hospitals, police stations, schools etc. would not appear on a high street or be mixed with commercial or residential or could not be modulars...then I saw this news item in my area https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-columbia/unique-firehall-single-mothers-residence-opens-in-vancouver-1.5381237. My neighbourhood also has a library/policing station combo. There are no longer any rules!

    Lol! Perhaps its in the eye of the beholder, that from some angle the Gingerbread house looks like a Free fall Tower? Potato, pothatoe...or however it is spelled.
    Or maybe they just forgot to include de instruction/pictures for an alternative build ;)

    An entire pizza shop in one cmf-polybag would be good value...or a very expensive cmf-polybag.

    We didn`t get a fairground set this year in the Creator Expert line - I wonder whether Fairground Free Fall Tower will be the next fairground set to be released next year. They may have delayed its release and then gave the Gingerbread house that number instead?!

    RE: "Do all cities need hotels more than bookshop/libraries? (Please dont take my question the wrong way, genuinely curious about your reasoning.)"

    I love books and libraries and cities definitely need both (particularly in Lego, children these days need to learn about the benefits of books instead of Apple/Windows/Android etc. products...)

    I was worried my point may not have been clear enough, maybe it will make sense this way.

    If one is starting a city from scratch, one builds essential services (fire station, hospital, police), food stores (bakery butchery general store and /or grocery) a town hall or community meeting area (maybe a church or hall), post office, sometimes a train station and/or airport, accommodation whether that be hotels, B & Bs, apartments flats etc.  There are others and naturally one would continue on from there.

    I just mean that while we are lacking for example, a post office, perhaps Lego should focus on something like that before 'auxiliary businesses' however I HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO PROBLEM with auxiliary businesses (especially if its a bookstore or library with an ice cream store)

    Sorry all regarding the huge spaces, no one seems to know why that happens...

    That is very logical reasoning, thank you for clarifying! I would probably also do so if i had the ”2-dimensional” space either horisontally or vertically.
    In some cases, where space/financial situation is limited, if one is only buying ”interesting” buildings (note: which varies in the eye of each individual lego collector) the city develops in completely different manner. In addition to Lego working hard to design sets that will appeal to most people (since it is a company and needs to profit from the sales) where each set needs to sell, if too many sets in a row dont pique a collectors interest that particular collector will probably be less interested in collecting Lego = not follow whats new = possibly missing out on buying new sets around release day.

    I like the modulars the most, the D2C Ninjago sets, many Disney princess and a few Friends sets but am not limited to buying those lines. So Im active in keeping track on when those are released and mostly buy them directly from Lego, while the others will be looked upon with mild interest once released, perhaps bought later on the secondary market. Thus, I tend to become more invested in lines that have kept my interest inbetween sets (overlooking single sets) but if several releases in a row are of no interest to me Ill prioritise the former.
  • SilverLoveSilverLove SwedenMember Posts: 90
    ^ to further prolong above - Ninjago sets being a good example in my case. I never looked at Ninjago sets before the first D2C set. I _saw_ them, but i didnt really look at/buy them. Since my first Ninjago D2C i follow when new regular sets are released, mostly fascinated from a creative point of view but occasionally also buying a set or two.

    It is probably smart to use protection when breaking ground on a PP.

    Ever since Mike Psiaki mentioned there needs to be a hotel in a presentation about the Downtown Diner folks keep bringing up there needs to be a hotel in the modular series. There already is one with Cafe Corner, so we don’t need another one. What we need is some public services like a doctors office/ pharmacy to get some medicine, a small police precinct so the bank director can report a break-in, hardware store so Minifigures can get tools and do some minor repairs, a library for educational purposes and some apartments perhaps. Some shops with toys/ books/ arts & crafts supplies, a bike repair shop for the scooters and bycicles, and an art gallery where the Minifigures can show off their artistic talents. Hopefully LEGO will give us something good again this year.

    I'm kinda stoked to see a Lego library. It's not something they've ever really done before, to the best of my knowledge? A few bookshelves here and there, but not a proper library.

    Can always wait until they go on sale I guess. I’ve bought a few for less than $200.

    The library is going to be pretty awesome.

    @Snizzlebutts True, a library will be awesome! Its just annoying having to wait practically the whole year until a possible Myers/DJs sale.

    I've just seen this on Facebook. 7 Dec at 12noon Singapore time (GMT +8).

    4am UK time would be an odd time to reveal it, so maybe it'll be announced beforehand and unveiled there in the brick.

    It’s not today.  Usually there is an embargo announcement on the LAN so everyone knows ~24 hours in advance and can monitor for leaks.  No announcement yet.  
  • CaptainRogersCaptainRogers Greensboro, NCMember Posts: 814
    ^good to know a rough timeframe of this week. The modular line might be my favorite ever, so I have been checking in frequently. Can't wait to see the official announcement!
  • SilverLoveSilverLove SwedenMember Posts: 90
    Argh! This is sooo straining! Every 15mins my brain goes: What if there is an announcement out already, refresh google search-page ”lego modular 2020”!!!! And its been going like this since 1st of dec (on top of waiting for it to become december) - oh wait probably not on a sunday. 2nd of dec - oh wait probably not during cyber monday. Then 3rd, 4th... 
    Whats most pathetic is that even if there were a ”traditional relase date” i wouldnt even know what time and according to what time zone. [facepalm]

    Good news! The younger generations should know what a ‘book’ is and how important it is that there are places, like libraries, where you can get real information about every subject. I pray this is TLG stand towards fake news 😀

    Watch them get overwhelmed by all the books and the fact that they would actually have to read instead of watching or listening to a video.. At least the bathrooms are a safe place to hide...

    ^ I wonder if this might be a building like the recent ones where the ground floor is a bookstore or library, & then the upper floors are something else entirely, as seems to be the modern footprint. Or could it be a return to something like PC where the whole building was all one entity?

    I saw somewhere (might have been here) that it was going to be similar feel to the detective office type build/ architecture. If that is the case, I could see 1/2 being the library bookstore but two stories for that part and maybe an attic on the third floor for storage or a computer area. Then the other 1/2 could be a newspaper stand outside with a post office on the inside and the second floor (doesn't have to have a third floor) could be a printing press/news room. I would like to see a school too sometime, with the green chalk boards and the desks that are from the 50s where the desk is the back and there is a seat at the front and they connected together to make the rows. My old middle school back east actually looks like the Brick Bank as far as architecture is concerned. Or maybe the town hall... either way it wouldn't have to be huge. :)

    ^ actually a DO type set would be awesome!  A portion of the set being 2 or more floors while other parts of it are single shops/offices would be pretty cool!  Some great ideas there.
